Conservatives, however, are not going down without a fight. Ron DeSantis, Florida’s Governor recently signed a law banning the discussion of homosexuality in schools. Disney, an important employer in the state, had come out in opposition to the bill. As a result, Fox News has begun to attack Disney. According to Chris Hayes, the right is reigniting its war on gay people.

The MSNBC host told his audience:

“The right has declared war on Disney. Just since yesterday morning, Fox News mentioned the company more than 252 times. Their crusade is based on that new law signed by Ron Desantis of Florida prohibiting instruction about sexual orientation and gender and early elementary school classrooms. Under the guise of protecting children from being sexualized, the law essentially bans the discussion of gay-ness.”

Hayes continued, “the most unhinged faction of the right, as you heard on Fox News, is now vilifying Disney as a creepy, QAnon-adjacent of sexual deviance. The conservative movement restarting its war against gay people.”
