America today is more politically polarized than ever before. Donald Trump’s presidency, the rise of Black Lives Matter, and two very different takes on the correct handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a left/right split so prominent and divisive that we really are living in two tribes.
With each passing day, the left is determined to double-down on eternally increasingly radical social and legal changes which have mutated well beyond the quest for a reasonable, rational desire for equality and fairness and have turned into crusades which defy even the realms of basic science.
Resist their regressive agenda, and you are the equivalent of a neo-Nazi. The radical left’s pack mentality, bullying tactics and damaging, divisive snowflake ideals have infiltrated even some of the biggest corporations on the planet.
From Ben & Jerry’s to Nike, so many big brands have been lost under the snowflake avalanche. And what’s even more infuriating is that their super-woke campaigns, like Ben & Jerry’s disgraceful attempt to tell the British government to accept illegal migration, do nothing save alienate a huge proportion of their client-base.
As a kid, and even now as an adult, I loved going to Disneyland. I grew up in Britain, so Euro Disney in Paris was just a short train ride away. Even as the Disney train pulls into the station and you’re greeted with the nostalgically familiar ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’, you’re immediately transported into a magical land which seems to exist in a kind of parallel reality.
No matter where you’re from, how old you are or what you do out there, indulging in Disney was a form of safe escapism for adults and children all over the world.
Unfortunately, it seems the snowflake avalanche has even toppled Cinderella’s magic castle.
With the recent revelation that Disney content bosses will in future ensure half the characters are trans, gay or from ethnic minorities, the company’s shareholders are finally firing up the snowplows.
Disney Biz Journal editor and shareholder Ray Keating said the company should not have made any political statement about Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill:
“Here’s a suggestion for Disney CEO Bob Chapek: Get back to business, that is, excellence in storytelling, and stop wasting shareholders’ money on political crusades that have nothing to do with Disney’s business,” Keating said to Fox News.
“We all have the right to have our voices heard on issues, but not on the shareholders’ dime,” he added.
It comes after Disney CEO Bob Chapek issued an apology on behalf of the Disney corporation to its gay and trans employees for not publicly condemning Florida’s bill which bans teachers from giving instructions about sexual orientation or identity to young children from kindergarten to third grade.
Many gay and trans Disney employees staged protests about the company’s lack of public condemnation of the bill, spurring Chapek to make the statement:
“You needed me to be a stronger ally in the fight for equal rights and I let you down,” Chapek said in a statement on March. 11. “I am sorry.”
If we need to teach kindergarteners about transsexualism and sexual orientation to promote ‘equality’, then is it really any wonder Mickey Mouse [or should we say Michelle Mouse?] is the latest woke victim?
