DeSantis Demands NATO Withdraw from Disney's "It's A Small World" Ride

ORLANDO (The Borowitz Report)—In an effort to establish his foreign-policy credentials, Ron DeSantis urged all NATO countries to “immediately withdraw” from Disney World’s “It’s a Small World” ride.

Claiming that Disney had perpetrated an “illegal woke invasion of Florida,” the Governor identified the “Small World” ride as the “tip of Disney’s liberal spear.”

“The Evil Empire of Disney is trying to spread the ideology that ‘there’s so much that we share,’ ” he said. “Not on my watch, there isn’t.”

He said that, if NATO did not withdraw from “It’s a Small World,” he would instruct Florida state troopers to raid the ride and “seize your dolls.”

“It will not be a world of laughter,” he warned. “It will be a world of tears.”

No student will be taught a foreign language, none are to be spoken, no translations, no signs and all non-English books are to be removed from ALL libraries in Florida! Punishment will be severe for violations of these orders and soon a new state law! It is toooooo Woke for the great state of FloriDUH.

It's a world of power,
And a world of pain,
A world for straights,
But not for gays,
There's so much to control,
And it's time you're aware,
It's my world after all.

It's a small world,
No room for you,
It's a small world,
It's all my world.
