Why The Magic Is Leaving The Kingdom At Disney
There is a brand new Rasmussen Reports survey previewed exclusively by Daily Wire about Disney.
I have long had tremendous admiration for Disney. Until a few years ago, when we lived in California, we were annual passholders of Disneyland. It was the best place to go with your kids. I have pictures with my parents from when I was a small kid at Disneyland. My fourth date with my wife was at Disneyland. I loved Disney products. I was a big Disney fan.
Then a few years ago they decided to go completely woke and move to the Left. They started injecting LGBTQ messaging into their programming, particularly for kids.
This was despicable because they took legacy properties which they were still making money on and simultaneously promoted a woke Left-wing agenda that targeted children.
That’s what Disney’s been doing.
The Rasmussen Reports survey, conducted in late September, shows that 60% of Republicans have an unfavorable opinion of Disney, including 35% who say they have a very unfavorable opinion. Only 32% of Republicans have a favorable view.
For Democrats, the results are precisely the opposite, because a lot of Democrats are perfectly happy with spoon-feeding a bunch of leftist tropes into children’s programming. This is no surprise.
In addition to the Rasmussen Reports survey, another study came out just yesterday from GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. The big Hollywood studios prescreen their films and TV shows for GLAAD’s Board of Censors, and GLAAD determines whether or not the product is acceptable to them. GLAAD’s report has rated major Hollywood studios based on how much LGBTQ content the studios are squeezing into their product.
They found that Disney is the top company along with Netflix. According to GLAAD’s statistics, they give Disney a 41% rating, which is a good rating. Disney made 59 total films; 24 of them were LGBTQ inclusive. Next to Warner Brothers Discovery, Disney had the highest rate. They are one of only three studios that received a good rating from GLAAD.
All of this is designed for a purpose and the purpose for a kids’ company like Disney is to target children. It’s one thing for Netflix to do this sort of stuff. Netflix is not largely designed for children, but Disney is designed explicitly for children.
Disney has decided that they wish — in the words of one of their own animators — to sledgehammer you with their not-at-all-secret gay agenda.
