(Patriot Insider) – Maybe Disney has finally come to the realization that their hostile attack on Florida’s elected officials and their “not-so-secret” sexual indoctrination of children just isn’t working out for them.
One top Disney executive has now been fired and it’s the very person who led the company’s charge against Florida Republicans over the recent parental rights legislation.
Former Chief Corporate Affairs Officer Geoff Morrell said he is looking to pursue other opportunities now, according to The New York Times. He had only been with Disney since January but he certainly did not waste time making his presence known.
Morrell was at the center of the attack on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the state law that has banned schools from blatantly indoctrinating children with deranged transgender ideology while children are in primary grades.

Disney thought they were untouchable but as it turns out, Americans were quick to cancel them and lawmakers in Florida didn’t take too kindly to their attacks. GOP lawmakers voted to revoke Disney’s special privileges that have allowed the company to be self-governing on the land it owns in Florida in and around Orlando’s Disney World.

CEO Bob Chapek sent out a memo announcing Morrell’s departure, according to Deadline.
“I am writing to share the news that Geoff Morrell, our Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities,” he wrote.
Morrell explained Friday in an email to those he supervised that it was time to go.
“After three months in this new role, it has become clear to me that for a number of reasons it is not the right fit,” he told his team.
Kristina Schake, vice president of global communications, will assume some of Morrell’s role, with other pieces divided among other top executives.
Hopefully those roles don’t include antagonizing Florida legislators any further though, given Schake’s work history, we won’t be holding our breath.
Disney announcement: “Kristina Schake, who has had roles in the Biden and Obama administrations and was also deputy communications director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, will run communications for the company.”

Schake was involved in the PR messaging for the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccination push and was deputy communications director for Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign, according to Deadline.
She’s also served as the global communications director for Instagram, special assistant to former President Barack Obama and communications director for former first lady Michelle Obama.
In 2009, Schake co-founded the American Foundation for Equal Rights, which advocated for same-sex marriage in California, Deadline reported. The group disbanded after the 2015 Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.
Schake is a leftist through and through. Perhaps Disney has learned nothing at all.
