The entertainment industry seems determined to alienate as many people as possible.
“Woke” elites are pandering to a small cross-section of the public.
Now a Hollywood actress made one cringeworthy comment about a new Disney movie.
Disney is the largest entertainment company in the world, and it looked unstoppable.
The brand is under assault…from inside the Mouse House.
“Woke” left-wingers inside Disney are hellbent on infusing activism into their storytelling.
Now Marvel movies, which are under the Disney banner, are trending in a so-called progressive direction.
And actress Natalie Portman is celebrating the description of Thor: Love and Thunder as the “gayest” movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Movie critic Andrew Freund interviewed Portman and asked her if the movie was “the gayest movie ever made in the MCU.”
Portman replied, “I love that reading of it…Yes, I love that.”
Freund expressed, “I mean, you’re flying on rainbows, or am I imagining it? … I loved how gay it was!”
Marvel movies have a brand that has been incredibly successful, but that could quickly change in favor of political messaging.
Wokeness is a secular religion, and leftists “evangelize” on its behalf relentlessly.
Every facet of society must be infused with left-wing politics, even action movies intended for kids.
Disney has recently been engaged in controversy after going to battle with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
The Parental Rights in Education law simply stops groomer teachers from indoctrinating kids with discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
That reasonable proposal sent Disney activists up a wall, and they cudgeled CEO Bob Chapek into publicly opposing the bill.
The tête-à-tête with DeSantis backfired, and Disney was stripped of a special tax and regulatory dispensation.
There has to be some incentive for left-wing companies to impose their will on people.
Democrat politicians have been doing this for years, such as blocking Chick-fil-A restaurants from opening up because CEO Dan Cathy believes in traditional marriage.
It doesn’t matter that Cathy’s personal politics do not interfere with the daily operation; Chick-fil-A has been branded as “bad.”
Disney has also watched its stock price plummet as far-left executives within the company were caught in leaked videos talking about their “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” and their victory in removing gendered language from theme parks, such as “ladies and gentlemen.”
Disney was a family company that promoted traditional values, but it has been overtaken by leftists, a phenomenon that has happened to many institutions.
Former Margaret Thatcher speech writer and political commentator John O’Sullivan said that any organization that is not explicitly right-wing will eventually become left-wing.
Disney is a clear example.
Roy E. Disney’s granddaughter Abigail is a wild leftist—who was unsurprisingly educated at elite institutions—and advocates for Disney to go even further left.
The Star Wars franchise is in hospice care after several missteps by Disney to make the franchise more “progressive.”
Leftism eventually ruins everything it touches.
Not even Disney is immune from the destruction that can be wreaked by leftists.
