Woke goes broke
The wonderful world of Disney has finally succumbed to the woke mob.
A recent leaked video obtained by journalist Christopher Rufo shows Disney employees boasting about pushing LGBT lifestyle into its content in response to the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Executive producer Latoya Raveneau explained that Disney was very welcoming of her pro-LGBT ideas, and she bragged about adding queerness wherever she could. The company has also created a Reimagine Tomorrow initiative, a program where “50% of regular and recurring characters across Disney General Entertainment scripted content will come from underrepresented groups” by 2022.
A new poll revealed that 68.2% of consumers are less inclined to give Disney their business and would rather support other family-friendly alternatives.
The company was also criticized on social media with people expressing their disappointment and anger. On Twitter, the phrase “Disney Groomers” was trending last week, and one user was even temporarily locked out of his account for referring to the corporation as “groomers.”
In classic liberal gaslighting fashion, the left is furious about being rightfully called “groomers” for pushing sexual content onto children behind parents’ backs. With all the backlash they’ve received from their opposition to Florida’s law, they are offended that people are seeing them for who they really are: a woke mob obsessed with indoctrinating our children.
The law, which doesn’t even have the word “gay” in it, simply affirms that parents have the right to control what their children are learning in school. It “protects children from inappropriate discussions of ‘gender identity’ and ‘sexual orientation’ in kindergarten through 3rd grade, and it requires school employees to tell parents if their child is struggling with physical, mental or emotional problems.”
Teachers are prohibited from talking about these subjects without parental consent, which is as it should be. All parents of all political persuasions should agree on that.
This is evident right here in Indiana. In Fort Wayne, a self-funded grassroots movement of parents is making waves with its billboard that reads “Protect our children” and advertises the book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters by Abigail Shrier. Parents are recognizing that these latest indoctrination pushes from the left go far beyond run-of-the-mill politics.
As the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Disney began as a fantastical, magical place where kids could dream big and experience beautiful stories of friendship, adventure, wonder, and happily ever afters. Now it has trampled on its namesake’s vision by perverting it with woke, sexual ideology all in the name of “inclusion.”
People are finally seeing the left for what it is and how it destroys everything it touches. Without support from consumers, Disney will continue to lose business. After all, what’s woke goes broke. A small price to pay in the fight to protect our children.
