Disney is now a hotbed of sexual radicals:
The targeting of our children by the militant activists has been going on for decades now, and I have documented far too many cases of this over the years. This is happening everywhere: in schools, in the media, in sport and entertainment, and so on. And children’s programming is certainly being used by those wanting to transform our kids into their radical image.
Ben Shapiro recently said this: “Children’s entertainment these days seems to be more about indoctrinating the next generation into radical race and gender ideologies than actually entertaining kids. Someone’s got to do something about this.” He went on to discuss a new streaming service for kids that The Daily Wire is working on.
One key player in this assault on our children is Disney. I have been warning about how bad they have been getting for over a decade now. In one piece from 2007 I quoted a Disney spokesman: “Despite having a worldwide reputation for being staid and conservative, Disney is, surprisingly, a very progressive company.” https://billmuehlenberg.com/2011/03/06/hollywood%e2%80%99s-war-against-children/
So it has a history of pushing leftist agendas that are far from family-friendly. Just recently we have gotten a double dose of diabolical debauchery from this mega-corporation. We have them waging war against conservative Florida governor Ron DeSantis, and we have them proudly declaring they want even more homosexual and trans characters in their children’s entertainment.
Florida recently signed into law the “Parental Rights in Education” bill which bans the teaching of gender identity and sexual orientation to students in kindergarten through third grade. Disney World is based in Orlando, and they have gotten involved saying they will fight this law. As one report states:
Whereas Disney may run the Magic Kingdom, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it clear that Disney doesn’t run his state. The governor eviscerated the children’s entertainment company at a media conference on Tuesday after Disney suggested it would work to overturn the newly signed state law that protects children from inappropriate sexual material in primary education. Referring to Disney’s California-based executives, DeSantis said that “they don’t run this state” and that the media giant had “crossed the line.” He also declared that Disney was “fundamentally dishonest” for doing so. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/desantis-slams-disney-for-saying-they-will-try-to-overturn-anti-grooming-bill/
At the same time Disney has been stating how they will ramp up the homosexualisation of its kids’ programming. As one write-up explains:
Karey Burke, president of Disney’s General Entertainment Content, feels strongly that if children aren’t going to be propagandized in school, they should be brainwashed and confused via Disney entertainment. “I’m here as a mother of two queer children, actually,” Burke told employees. “One transgender child and one pansexual child, and also as a leader.” Burke went on to say she is committed to Disney producing content that features “underrepresented” individuals.
We have many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories, and yet we don’t have enough leads, and narratives in which gay characters just get to be characters. During another portion of the call, Disney’s “diversity and inclusion” manager, Vivian Ware bragged about discontinuing the use of the phrases “ladies and gentlemen” and “boys and girls” from announcements at their theme parks. https://www.lifenews.com/2022/03/31/the-sad-collapse-and-corruption-of-disneys-woke-world/
This was further amplified when leaked videos showed how far they want to push all this:
Among the revelations are executive producer Latoya Raveneau boasting of a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” that involves “adding queerness” to children’s programming; production coordinator Allen March explaining his team has a “tracker” to ensure they create a sufficient number of “gender nonconforming characters,” “canonical trans characters,” and “canonical bisexual characters”; “diversity and inclusion” manager Vivian Ware explaining the company has purged the terms “ladies,” “gentlemen,” “boys,” and “girls” from its theme parks to create “that magical moment” for gender-nonconforming children; and more. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/leaked-videos-expose-disneys-not-at-all-secret-gay-agenda-to-indoctrinate-children/
This is not the outfit that Walt Disney established nearly a century ago. This is now a radical, hyper-woke bunch of lefties deliberately targeting our children, using kid’s entertainment as a tool of propaganda and recruitment. Plenty of folks have expressed outrage at this.
Commentator Megyn Kelly said this about the Disney agenda:
So Disney and she [Disney Corporate President Karey Burke] have apparently made clear that they are going to be putting as many … LGBTQIA, two-spirit, goes on and on all these folks, in as many Disney movies as possible. That they want these characters to become ubiquitous in the Disney movies.
And I think that is totally unnecessary and out of line. I don’t want you to work out your wokeism on my kid! Okay! Do a movie that teaches tolerance, kindness, support for your fellow human beings. Don’t shove two-spirit people, which by the way is not a thing, and pansexual I had to look it up…so you’re bi I guess. That’s not a thing. That’s already a thing. They already have a letter.
I’m sorry, but please, all these glommers who just want attention… Anyways, it’s good to know. We owe a debt of gratitude to Karey Burke for being so explicit about their plans and to certainly Chris Rufo for letting us all know about them. Beware. You beware. Don’t put a Disney movie on in front of your kid before you fully come to understand what it’s going to be promoting, who’s gonna be starring, and what agenda they’re pushing. They’re no longer the Disney of yesterday. https://www.dailywire.com/news/beware-megyn-kelly-issues-scathing-message-to-disney-saying-dont-work-out-your-wokeism-on-my-kid
John Stemberger, President of Florida Family Policy Council said this:
The Disney CEO is being played like a fiddle and manipulated like a playdough cartoon. Even though 67% of Americans oppose what they are doing, Disney is more concerned with the screaming mob of woke employees who are literally bullying the company by abandoning paying guests at theme parks. Both Walt Disney and Roy Disney must be rolling around in their graves. Disney has long lost its neutral status as a unifying nonpolitical element of our culture. Instead, they have now become political leftists and enemy number one to their primary base of customers– parents with small children. https://familypolicyalliance.com/press-releases/open-letter-to-disney-put-parents-children-before-politics/
And Larry O’Connor put it this way:
Disney has thrown away its hard-fought reputation as a safe harbor for families who want to have confidence that their children will be entertained and amused without worldly intrusions that may infringe on parents’ values and priorities. This is not the kind of reputation that comes easy, and after decades of nurturing and attention as the gold standard for family-friendly entertainment, Disney is now more than happy to turn its back on those of us who have invested thousands of hours and thousands of dollars in Mickey, Minnie and the gang. If Disney doesn’t reverse course and do some serious damage control, this will soon be seen as one of the most disastrous brand disintegrations in American corporate history. https://townhall.com/columnists/larryoconnor/2022/03/30/disney-used-to-protect-childrens-innocence-now-they-ruin-it-n2605252
Let me close with a few quotes from Walt Disney to show how far the new woke Disney is from what he had intended:
“Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children.”
“A family picture is one the kids can take their parents to see and not be embarrassed.”
“Movies can and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood and family value.”
“Both my study of Scripture and my career in entertaining children have taught me to cherish them.”
