The sad descent of Disney
Conservatives pundits and many parents are complaining that “Lightyear,” which is the “origin story" of “Toy Story” character Buzz Lightyear, has been politicized by a cell of LGBTQ propagandists working at Disney.
The kissing scene was originally cut from “Lightyear” but was then reinstated after Disney and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had a feud over Florida’s “don’t say gay” bill, which banned public schools from discussing sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
It’s satisfying to see that Disney’s creepy propagandizing is causing it financial pain at the box office, here and overseas.
“Lightyear’s” opening weekend in the United States was a critical and financial bust for a movie that cost $200 million to make.
About because of the gay kiss, about 15 Muslim countries have banned it so far, and China – a major market for Disney – reportedly has asked Disney to cut the scene before allowing it into the country.
There’s lots of humor in Disney’s descent into blatant wokism in its movies and at its theme parks.
For example, “Fox Across America” host Jimmy Failla tweeted that Disney should rename its Disneyland ride “Snow White and the Seven Genders.”
But mostly what has befallen Disney is terribly sad.
From “Pinocchio” all the way to Disneyworld, the Disney Channel and Disney+, the company Walt started was all about entertainment – G-rated family entertainment.
Now it’s also about pushing woke ideas on little kids and making many parents uncomfortable – or angry.
