Opening up a new front in the nation’s culture wars, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis revoked Walt Disney’s self-governing authority in apparent retaliation for opposing the state’s new “Don’t Say Gay” law.

DeSantis signed a bill Friday that will cancel special privileges granted to Disney decades ago to govern the land surrounding its Disney World theme park. The new law, set to take effect in June 2023, will cost Disney tens of millions of dollars a year. 

The public feud has upended the once cozy relationship between Florida and Disney. It’s also just the latest salvo in the political right’s battle against “wokeness.”
