Disney Gets Its Butt Kicked; Leftists Howl

Disney opposition to DeSantis 'don't say gay' law riles up Fox News.

Just a teeny bit creepy, don’t you think?

The Florida legislature has revoked Disney Corp.’s self-governing status and special tax privileges–provoking maniacal howls of rage from leftist “protesters” (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/04/lefty-protesters-screech-like-demons-florida-house-votes-favor-strip-disneys-self-governing-status-video/) [see the video embedded in the link].

This was done because Disney has strenuously resisted, and openly defied, Florida’s new prohibition of “teaching sex” to very young children, grades 3 and under. For some reason, restraining this drives Democrats and the rest of Far Left Crazy right up the wall.

The only conceivable reason they might have for “teaching sex” to six-year-olds would be as part of a desire to “groom” children for sex. Thus teachers’ unions and Disney wallahs, et al, are now being called “groomers” because that is obviously what they’re doing. And do they scream bloody murder when you call them that!

The only reason it hurts so much is because it’s true. They are beside themselves with fury at being exposed.

Well, Disney Corp. asked for a fight, got one, and is now being carried out on a stretcher.

Three cheers for Florida!

  1. Disneyland & Disney World have been a pilgrimage destination for several generations so children can have the same experience as their parents but not anymore – Florida has shown the light of truth & reality on them. Take your children to any place but the Disney Parks. This is another example of the 3rd generation heirs turning to the Left.

    1. There is no law of nature which states that people have to do business with Disney. I haven’t bought anything Disney in years, and I doubt that I stand alone in this. To me, it’s just another brand that has lost much of its appeal over the years. Company names are only as good as the people currently in charge, and it’s obvious that Disney has changed drastically from what it once was.

      Let’s put this in perspective, Twitter has its feathers quite ruffled because of a takeover bid by Elon Musk, who calls himself a free speech absolutist. If successful, he plans to expose the algorithms used, which essentially will prove that they are censoring opinions that don’tt agree with the political views of the management. Netflix has lost value, because of their “wokeness”. I had already quit them years ago, when I saw their content offerings change into something I didn’t care to support.

      We have choices, and we do not need to shrug philosophically and just keep doing business with these companies. A number of years ago, I bought a vehicle from a company I had done business with many times, in the past. But this particular vehicle had an appetite for automatic transmissions that could not be sated. It ate transmissions, having overhauls and repairs, one after the other. Finally, when I had my fifth transmission failure, I sold the vehicle for scrap and bought another vehicle … of a different brand. No transmission problems ever since.

      We don’t NEED Facebook, or Twitter, or Disney, or Netflix. There are alternatives, such as the alternative I use for Facebook and Twitter, which is not having an account on either of these platforms. Against all medical logic, I somehow survive without these accounts. I’m certain that the NIH has no clue as to how this is possible. 🙂

      It appears that there is a lot of pushback against the “wokeism” of our day, and we can vote with our wallets. Disney can have its way, but they can’t force me to do business with them. If enough people stand their ground, it will affect their bottom line.

    2. Exactly. We do not have to have everything offered to us in the way of goods or services. I don’t have cable, or sat’ TV, and I definitely do not have Disney plus, or anything like that. I’d much rather visit Yosemite than Disneyland, and there are all sorts of interesting places we can visit. When I was a kid, we drove right past Disneyland without stopping. I survived.

    3. I’ve been to trade events, literally across the street from it and have seen inside the park. It didn’t impress me. Honestly, it looked plastic and contrived to my eye. Frankly, over the years, I have found that they have moved to a very plastic and contrived product in all that they do. Back when Prairie Home Companion was all the rage, Disney wedged their way into that program. Soon thereafter, an organ grinder made an appearance on the show, and it was not at all surprising that the song was It’s A Small World (After All), a staple of the Disney empire. I turned the show off at that point and, to the best of my memory, that was the last time I anything to do with it.

      When I was a kid, I bought Disney comics and saw quite a few Disney movies. It was relatively wholesome entertainment, and absent political content, but that was nearly 60 years ago. But even as I matured, I found that much Disney content left a saccharine aftertaste, and they were among the first of the comic books I left behind during my childhood. I saw a Disney movie called The Kid in 2000, but, for the most part, I have done very little business with Disney since I was a child.

      As I see it, Disney has become overbearing, over the years. Disneyland started out as an immersive experience, all the way back in the ‘50s, but it’s only grown since then. Frankly, I don’t want to be immersed in anything to the point that I am under the control of others. For this reason, I doubt that I would ever visit most theme parks.

    4. When I was tennish or so, my favorite comic book was Uncle Scrooge. I wonder what they’ve done to it since then.
      I never got anywhere near Dizzyland, and Disney’s TV offerings got a little obnoxious in the 1960s.

    5. I loved Scrooge, and especially the Beagle Boys. I was never much on Mickey Mouse, but loved the Duck family.

      Even when I was a kid, in the ‘60s, I found some of the Disney TV films a bit syrupy for my tastes. Overall, I think that Walt Disney tried to be a force for good, although revisionism has chipped away at his reputation over the years. I’m certain that he would be very surprised to see what has happened to the company that bears his name in the years since his death. He had a product, and he sold what his audience expected. These days, wholesome entertainment, free of sexual content, has become unfashionable with the mass media, so it’s an uphill battle for any company to steer clear of the immoral atmosphere of the times.
