Following the passage of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, outrage ironically came from a place that used to be known for its family-centric audience: Disney. The entertainment giant has been feeding social leftism into the minds of young audiences for a while, but now Disney has dropped all pretenses and is openly bragging about it.
In a video call leaked to investigative journalist Chris Rufo, Disney executive Latoya Raveneau was heard bragging about her “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” and said no one attempted to stop her or voice concerns when she went out of her way to place LGBT couples and innuendo in Disney’s animated movies.
President of Disney General Entertainment Karey Burke signaled in the same call that the company’s goal is to have at least 50 percent of new Disney characters be either LGBT or minorities by the end of 2022. There is no room left to wonder – they are indeed grooming our children.
Disney Wants to Shape Your Children’s Minds
Parents aren’t just enraged because there happens to be a same-sex couple in the background of a movie. It goes so much deeper than that.
The fact that adults working in children’s entertainment are intentionally forcing their sexual agendas on children should be infuriating and frightening to us all. They’re taking advantage of the innocence of children while they are most impressionable. Instead of letting kids be kids and using movies to let young imaginations run wild, Disney is actively trying to make them doubt fundamental truths.
Cancel culture has scared many parents from speaking out against these goals for fear of being seen as bigoted, but the time to cower to the mob isn’t now. A generation of minds is at stake.
Everyone has a worldview, and Disney is proving it will not shy away from an aggressive, all-out approach to molding and shaping children’s views of sexuality. Disney is bragging about coming for the hearts and minds of children, and every parent should be absolutely livid.
The madness doesn’t stop there. “Lightyear,” the newest Pixar movie set to hit the big screen on June 17, 2022, follows the real Buzz Lightyear’s space explorations before he becomes the beloved action figure in the classic Disney movie “Toy Story.” This children’s movie will now include a same-sex kiss that was added back into the movie in an apparent gloved mouse finger to the Parental Rights in Education bill. According to Pixar, the same-sex kiss occurs between Buzz’s fellow ranger and another woman.
We do not have a friend in Disney. While this is the first animated Disney/Pixar movie to feature a same-sex kiss, these movie moguls have been slowly working their way toward this moment for some time, and it started out so subtly you may not have noticed it.
A Gradual Subterfuge
In movies like “Finding Dory” (2016) and “Toy Story 4” (2019), same-sex couples can be seen in the background strolling down the street, sitting close to each other, and hugging a child. In the 2020 movie “Onward,” a female police officer mentions that she has a girlfriend, although the girlfriend isn’t shown on-screen.
Some even believed that the 2021 film “Luca” was a “coming out allegory.” Director Enrico Casarosa acknowledged this idea had been tossed around, but the filmmakers decided that Luca and Alberto’s relationship was purely friendship.
Perhaps the boldest of Disney’s LGBT agenda thus far was a 2020 short called “Out,” which told the story of a gay man coming out to his parents.
Jessica Darrow, the voice of Luisa in Disney’s recent hit “Encanto,” describes herself as queer. When asked about LGBT’s influence on Disney, she said, “We are the face of Disney at the end of the day.”
In adult Disney entertainment, the 2019 Star Wars film “Rise of Skywalker” and Marvel’s new film “Eternals” both featured a same-sex kiss and romance. Even the live-action “Beauty and the Beast” (2017) included a brief same-sex moment between two men dancing together in the final scene.
Caving to the mob and intensifying sexual content in family and children’s movies will do more harm than good to Disney’s brand, not to mention harming children everywhere. Parents — the people who spend money on Disney products — should all be repulsed by this kind of entertainment aimed at their families, and many are.
Disney’s Not Pretending Anymore
In its initial response to the Parental Rights in Education law, Disney continued its former status quo of being demure about its political agenda, publicly expressing a desire to avoid becoming a “political football.” But now Disney has decided to drop all pretenses.
A new statement from Disney railed that the law prohibiting classroom instruction on sexual ideology to kindergarten through third-grade students “should never have passed and should never have been signed into law. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts.”
Additionally, Disney announced that employees would no longer be using the phrases “ladies and gentlemen” or “boys and girls” in announcements at the beginning of their beloved shows and firework displays. Just when you’ve thought you’ve seen everything (except an elephant fly).
Disney’s recent eagerness to make war on parents wasn’t part of Walt Disney’s vision for his life’s work. His dream was to bring fantasies of childhood to life through the magic of storytelling, not groom children for woke sexual agendas. For traditional families who want to hold onto innocent entertainment for their kids and keep them safe from sexual agendas, it seems like the only place to go is against the current and just around the river bend.
