It’s strange how things change so rapidly and its scary to think about owning such a wonderful company and upon death what the other executives will do to it. Surely contrary to popular belief Disney was a conservative man and Disney for the most part was a conservative values company, most notably in the pro family arena. Disney was a conservative to the core which makes one think if this opposite anti family agenda was payback for Mr. Disney or just an ideal perfect opportunity to utilize and grow such a broad left leaning agenda moving forward after his death.
The anti family, pro gay agenda has become the norm in todays day and age at Disney which is quite ironic for a “pro family” company. The company is being used in every angle to indoctrinate children into a leftist agenda. Here is a few pieces of what Douglas Mackinnon from the entire article at Tampa bay tribune writes :
That said, since at least 1984, many believe the company has also been in the business of advancing a left-leaning agenda. While some on the left have gone out of their way to smear his memory and name, Walt Disney the man was conservative in nature, and anyone who remembers “The Wonderful World of Disney” knows he created wholesome entertainment.
Beginning with the takeover of the company by Michael Eisner in 1984 and continuing under the leadership of Robert Iger since 2005, it can be argued that Disney has been working overtime to redefine “family values.”
Back in the late 1990s when I worked with former Sen. Bob Dole, I had the pleasure to interact with Iger. He was professional, respectful and could not have been more kind or considerate. Since taking over, he has only made the company more profitable. But beyond his fiscal responsibility to shareholders, does Iger have an even greater responsibility to impressionable children?
Disney has made no secret that it pushes a pro-gay agenda. That is most certainly its right. But where does the company draw the line? A former Disney executive I spoke with told me the company has taken direct aim at children to indoctrinate them about gay lifestyles and gay marriage through shows it airs on The Disney Channel and Disney XD.
The former executive said one of the more subtle techniques is to incorporate the colors of the gay-pride flag in as many shots as possible. The colors are woven in as a wink and nod to the gay community and show up on shirts, hats, posters, stacked cups and rings. The practice has been picked up by other children’s networks and national advertisers.
Disney also pushes the gay agenda by introducing openly gay characters and couples on its children’s programing. Again, that is their right, but should they be in the business of entertaining children or indoctrinating them?
Beyond its pro-gay agenda, which now includes halting funding to the Boy Scouts of America, Disney also leans left in its politics. Once again, that is their right. But going back to their children’s programming, Michelle Obama has become a fixture on seemingly every Disney Channel show or Disney commercial, with President Barack Obama also incorporated in as many ways as possible.
It is important to note that the funding from Disney to Boy Scouts of America will be stopped beginning 2015 if the Boy Scouts continue to not allow gay leaders. We previously wrote an article on what would likely be nationalized if they decided to nationalize certain companies such as GM. We failed to list Disney but there would be no better company to nationalize as such a powerful tool moving forward.
The question is would Disney approve of any of this or had his company been ran by conservative executives and Eisner had not taken control, what would Disney values be like today? What impact would that have had on society today as well?
