Given that, it’s a little funny how the far left loves to extol the virtue of things like freedom of speech, but only when it serves them — like when NFL players kneel for the national anthem.
When it doesn’t suit their agenda? They conveniently forget the dangers of censorship.
One of the latest examples of this brazen hypocrisy comes from Disney World, where a proud Trump supporter has been banned for life after holding up a “Trump 2020” sign.
According to multiple outlets, such as the Orlando-based Spectrum News 13, Dion Cini has been permanently banned from all Disney properties after brandishing a “Trump 2020” sign while on Splash Mountain at Disney World.
Naturally, Disney claimed that this has nothing to do with politics.
“Walt Disney World welcomes all guests to enjoy our parks; however, demonstrations and the display of signs and banners is not permitted on the premises. We have previously reminded this guest about our rules,” a Disney spokeswoman told Spectrum News in a statement.
I’m sorry, but banning a man over a sign endorsing the president is inherently political.
Now, to be perfectly fair, Cini had reportedly been kicked out of Disney World before for unfurling a banner in September that read “Re-Elect Donald J. Trump. Keep America Great. 2020.”
But according to WOFL, Disney eventually allowed Cini back into the park so long as he didn’t carry any signs that would “incite crowds.” So, again, apparently supporting your president is tantamount to inciting crowds?
Check out the WOFL report here:
The cynic in me thinks that Disney’s response to Cini wouldn’t have been nearly as harsh had he carried a “Hillary 2020” sign.
To his credit, Cini denies inciting anything, but is willing to accept Disney’s ban. Claiming he does not want to break any laws by trespassing, Cini will not go to any Disney properties ever again.
That being said, Cini also told WOFL that he has no plans to curtail his enthusiastic support of President Donald Trump.
He’s already made a name for himself with pro-Trump demonstrations in New York City, as reported by CNN last year. And it doesn’t sound like anything’s going to change.
Cini said he will continue to proudly unfurl flags and banners supporting Trump. In fact, he said that his flags and banners will only get bigger.
Good for him for sticking with his beliefs, no matter what the far left tries to do to him.
