Disney and the Fight for Our Children
Disney is 99 years old. It has carefully curated a reputation as the main seller of family entertainment to American parents and children.
This megaconglomerate owns abc, espn, Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Fox Entertainment, National Geographic, Touchstone Pictures and dozens of other companies. It is worth $67 billion to its shareholders for the core reason that it can reliably use music and images to attract and influence children and their parents.
Disney is the mainstream of American entertainment. It has shaped generations’ ideas and feelings about childhood, fatherhood, motherhood, family, romance, fear, rebellion, deceit, magic, politics, race, killing and more. Disney has been teaching you—and it wants to teach your children much more.
Most of us don’t realize how much we have already absorbed what you could call “Disney attitudes” about love, romance and even sex. And our children will not realize what they have absorbed as their minds were fed and educated by their entertainment. It will all just seem normal and right.
Executives at Disney are well aware of this. They and their cohorts at other media corporations are exercising this power to contribute to a single trend that can, all by itself, destroy our society.
Here is how.
Behind the Scenes
Disney is “adding queerness” to children’s programming wherever it can, as one executive producer in the company put it. The producer said she was delighted by how welcoming other Disney leaders were as she implemented her “not-at-all-secret gay agenda.”
That producer is currently working on an animated show about a family. This show is scheduled to include at least 17 celebrity sexual deviants voicing characters, including two homosexuals of different races who have adopted a 14-year-old activist daughter.
Her comments came from a conference call that included a Disney corporate president who described herself as the mother of “one transgender child and one pansexual child.” This woman celebrated the fact that Disney has “many, many, many lgbtqia characters in our stories,” but then fretted, “yet we don’t have enough leads.” She then tearfully pushed for half of Disney characters to be either sexually deviant or racial minorities.
What was the purpose of the conference call? To organize Disney executives into a political push: Make it legal for teachers to give lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and other sex instruction in the classroom—to third graders, second graders, first graders and kindergartners.
Disney’s chief executive officer sent a memo to the company’s tens of thousands of employees, stating, “I believe the best way for our company to bring about lasting change is through the inspiring content we produce, the welcoming culture we create, and the diverse community organizations we support.”
Disney’s sexual perversion is coming out into the open. But this campaign to lower children’s inhibitions toward romance, sexuality, and ultimately toward sex acts, homosexuality, cross-dressing, genital mutilation, pedophilia and more didn’t start just this year. It started subtly, decades ago—when many of us were children.
For years, children have been absorbing attitudes about love, romance and sexuality that were invented, enhanced and distributed by corporate executives in Southern California. There is a reason why the tens of thousands of “family friendly” movies and television series released in your lifetime nearly always feature children—and no involved, admirable father. There is a reason why they nearly always portray romance and “obligatory sex scenes” featuring increasingly young actors.
But these “family friendly” corporations didn’t stop there.
Out of the Closet
Even in the 1980s and 1990s, Disney employed many openly homosexual animators, composers, lyricists, casting managers, producers and other staff members at all levels, and contracted homosexual actors and voice actors. Some of these people produced characters with effeminate and other homosexual and bisexual traits, often as villains or comedic characters, and always subtle, understated and coded.
You can see a steady blurring of the lines just as you progress through the catalog of Disney content from The Little Mermaid in 1989 to The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, w.i.t.c.h., Gravity Falls, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Doc McStuffins, Marvel Rising, Star Wars Resistance, Onward, Good Luck Charlie, Duck Tales, Out, Finding Dory, Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure, The Avengers, The Owl House, The Proud Family, Luca, High School Musical, Frozen, The Ghost and Molly McGee, Amphibia, Andi Mack, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, Cruella, Eternals, Rise Up Sing Out, Jungle Cruise, Lightyear … to be continued.
Disney purchased abc in 1995. At that time, abc already had a history of pro-homosexual programming. Then ceo Michael Eisner had already agreed to extend health insurance benefits to the partners of homosexual Disney employees. The homosexual messaging from abc began seeping into Disney’s television and theatrical productions.
Eisner stated in 1998 that about 40 percent of Disney employees were queer. That’s according to a former executive director of the Human Rights Campaign, an activist group that lobbies for homosexual and other deviant practices to become legal, accepted, celebrated—and introduced to children.
Disney is famous for its unique, memorable characters, but there is a reason why some of its characters appear and act the way they do. For example, homosexual lyricist Howard Ashman convinced animators to pattern the Ursula villain from The Little Mermaid after a cross-dressing performer called Divine. Homosexual artist Andreas Deja drew comedic sidekick LeFou from Beauty and the Beast, villain Jafar from Aladdin, and villain Scar from The Lion King with effeminate characteristics, without making them overtly homosexual. This animation strategy is called “queer coding,” and it is used to desensitize the viewer to homosexuality and transgenderism.
The strategy these lyricists and animators used was spelled out clearly in a November 1987 article in Guide, a homosexual magazine, titled “The Overhauling of Straight America,” published two years before The Little Mermaid hit theaters.
“The first order of business is desensitization of the American public concerning gays and gay rights,” wrote Marshall K. Kirk and Hunter Madsen. “To desensitize the public is to help it view homosexuality with indifference instead of with keen emotion. Ideally, we would have straights register differences in sexual preference the way they register different tastes for ice cream or sports games: She likes strawberry, and I like vanilla; he follows baseball, and I follow football. No big deal.
“At least in the beginning, we are seeking public desensitization and nothing more. We do not need and cannot expect a full ‘appreciation’ or ‘understanding’ of homosexuality from the average American. You can forget about trying to persuade the masses that homosexuality is a good thing. But if only you can get them to think that it is just another thing, with a shrug of their shoulders, then your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won. And to get to that shoulder-shrug stage, gays as a class must cease to appear mysterious, alien, loathsome and contrary. A large-scale media campaign will be required in order to change the image of gays in America.”
Anyone who has ever hummed along to Howard Ashman’s song “Poor, Unfortunate Souls” while laughing at a sea-witch dressed up like a drag queen has already started to view homosexuality as “just another thing.” And that is just what animators wanted when they started drawing “queer coded” villains during the 1990s Disney renaissance.
But the era of the campy drag queens and effeminate sorcerers was just part of a decades-long media campaign. Now Disney has introduced an openly homosexual couple to its new telling of DuckTales. Having made homosexuality “just another thing,” sexual deviants are now pushing to “persuade the masses that homosexuality is a good thing.”
Some conservatives who laughed at “queer coded” villains are now outraged at openly homosexual couples like the one in this summer’s film Lightyear, a spin-off of Toy Story.
But companies like Disney are not backing down. The controversy over its support for teaching elementary kids homosexuality is not the start of the war. It has been waging a cover war since the ’80s. Now it’s just more overt and savage.
Disney is not only “adding queerness” to its programing more aggressively, it is also using its immense wealth and political influence off-screen.
The state of Florida, where the Walt Disney World Resort and a number of other Disney interests are located, has passed the Parental Rights in Education Act. This forbids teachers from instructing children about sex and “gender identity” prior to fourth grade. Disney worked to defeat the bill before it was passed and, afterward, condemned the law, called for it to be repealed, and vowed to do what it could to make sure children in the third grade and younger will be exposed to homosexuality, transgenderism and more.
“Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law,” Disney said in an official March 28 statement. “Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that. We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of lgbtq+ members of the Disney family, as well as the lgbtq+ community in Florida and across the country.”
Disney executives then organized the “Reimagine Tomorrow Conversation Series,” where the company’s homosexual and transsexual employees suggested ways Disney could push a woke agenda. This is where the featured presenter, executive producer Latoya Raveneau, told her audience that her team was implementing a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” by regularly “adding queerness” to Disney programming. It was corporate president Karey Burke who pledged to make at least 50 percent of Disney on-screen characters sexual deviants or racial minorities by the end of the year.
That’s right: The company that distributed Davy Crockett, Old Yeller, Pollyanna and films you or maybe your parents grew up on now wants your children to grow up on favorable depictions of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders and queers illustrated in vivid colors with happy music playing in the background. These won’t be the campy villains of the Howard Ashman era. They will be designed as role models.
Disney no longer just wants people to view homosexuality as “just another thing.” They want to convert your children to their way of life.
1997 was a typical year for Disney: It released 18 feature films that year, including Hercules, drawn by openly homosexual animator Andreas Deja in a way that was reportedly influenced by his homosexuality. According to one Gallup poll, 21 percent of American adults born after that year now identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender—compared to only 5.6 percent of American adults overall. Despite the now-fading claims that sexual perversions are genetic, the evidence shows that homosexuality and transgenderism are more common among those raised on Disney’s “not-at-all-secret gay agenda.” Disney wants to teach children about queerness before they hit puberty—because sexual indoctrination at this age gets results.
Conservative media outlets have compared Disney’s behavior to “child grooming.” This is a grossly insufficient term for a despicable practice: when an adult builds trust and an emotional connection with a child for the purpose of then manipulating, exploiting, abusing and finally raping him or her.
Influencing, desensitizing, grooming, programming, removing the inhibitions of, and destroying the purity and innocence of children is a horrendous crime. Nothing about it is for children’s benefit—it is all for the sick satisfaction of the adults doing it. The Parental Rights in Education Act is a sincere attempt to protect elementary school students from such abuse. But truthfully, a law stating that teachers cannot sexually indoctrinate preteens is hardly a landmark victory for conservatives.
Still—in today’s America, even trying to protect children 8 years old and under from grooming in the classroom is contested, opposed and savagely attacked.
Children and teenagers need to be protected from this type of propaganda throughout elementary school, middle school, high school and college if they are to establish successful, happy families of their own.
Just as homosexuality and transgenderism have been mainstreamed and normalized, so now is pedophilia. Some “experts” insist attraction to children is genetic and immutable. There are apologists arguing that sexual relationships between adults and children can be healthy. To avoid stigma, terms like “adult-child relationships” and “minor attracted persons” are coming into use.
What these people are trying to legitimize is child molestation and rape.
Children who are thus victimized suffer consequences for life. Many are never able to build healthy relationships with the opposite sex.
Lax attitudes toward this evil result in criminal abuse and even literal sexual enslavement. It will lead to a world of broken families, drug addiction, violence, coldness, guilt, shame, confusion. It will produce broken children who grow up to perpetrate similar evils on the next generation of children.
Powerful entertainment executives are trying to make it easier and easier for child perversion and rape to become more familiar and easy. Pedophiles are choosing to create a demand for child pornography. They are choosing to indulge monstrous urges that destroy minds and shatter lives, including their own.
If this is not evil, nothing is evil! It is a deadly mistake to sympathize with or to try to understand it, let alone to tolerate it or encourage it. It must be stopped.
This Is Big
Many people consider morality a side issue, nowhere as important as the economy or national security or education. They think that how sex is used, even how it is introduced to children, is a squabble worth perhaps a few minutes of attention on the news before moving on to other things.
They are dead wrong.
If you think that the massive, coordinated, monstrous evil of sexually destroying children currently being perpetrated is just a weird quirk of current events or an unavoidable tragedy or a lamentable misfortune or all of the above, you need to be freed of such anemic thinking.
This single issue can destroy our society. In fact, it has almost finished destroying it.
Commentator Glenn Beck released a program called “Project Groomer” that includes a clip from Yuval Noah Harari, an Israeli intellectual and futurist who has spoken several times at the influential World Economic Forum conference in Davos, Switzerland, where globalists work together to reshape the world to their vision. He predicted that, as humanity reengineers bodies, brains and minds, there will be no gender in 50 years.
If elites at Disney and elsewhere have their way, he is exactly right. We are raising a generation of children who will actually not understand male, female, husband, wife, marriage or family. They will have no idea about right use of sex, about virtue, chastity or commitment. They will have no sense of morality, responsibility, duty or purpose. They will have no idea how to relate to others or how to rightly live!
Nothing could be more pleasing to the devil, who hates children, hates family, and hates mankind.
The Apostle Paul cautions us not be ignorant of Satan’s devices lest he get an advantage over us (2 Corinthians 2:11). The Apostle Peter warned, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Lions advance toward their prey carefully by hiding in the grass—until it is too late. That is why Peter has to warn us to be vigilant. You have to see the lion while it is still hiding in the grass to have any chance of escaping.
It is easy for Christians and conservatives to look at the filth in society today and think they are doing just fine by comparison. Polls shows 70 percent of Americans say they are less likely to support Disney for embracing an lgbtq+ agenda.
Satan is fine with that. He can retreat a step or two, return to the grass and lay low for a while, and make conservatives feel they have won a great victory.
But look at the big picture. This world is rapidly embracing this perversion. Society has changed utterly just in the last decade or so—not even one lifetime.
People simply do not understand the true nature of evil. They think we can coexist with it. That is exactly why society is being overwhelmed by evil. That is why, when Florida’s governor made it illegal to teach perverted sex to 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds, he was branded an extremist, and other states boycotted Florida. That is why America’s assistant secretary for health is a transgender and was made a four-star admiral in the U.S. Navy. That is why the numbers of people identifying as lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender is skyrocketing. And that is why the media celebrate this trend as a heartwarming success.
Conservatives, meanwhile, are steadily retreating. A decade ago, the culture war was over homosexual “marriage.” Now most conservatives have accepted such “marriage” as the law of the land so they can focus on battling transgenderism. Next they will surrender that to focus on “adult-child relationships.”
Society is changing so fast it is nearly impossible to maintain the appropriate level of godly indignation and anger over the depravity. That takes real effort, and that becomes more difficult to sustain over time.
We tend to get tired of fighting, but Satan never does.
And the way the radical left fights these battles shows you how the devil thinks. You don’t agree with transgenderism? Too bad—they will teach it to your kindergartner and not even tell you! Push back, and they will insult you, shout at you, bully you online, threaten you.
Satan forces people to obey his will.
And he is pushing this toxic brew of iniquity because he wants to destroy human beings.
This is why God tells us to hate evil as He does (e.g. Psalm 97:10; Proverb 8:13).
Parents, take seriously your God-given responsibility to be your child’s educator. Know what he or she is being taught in school and what he or she is watching and reading. Take every step necessary to defend them. Train him in the way you know he should go (Proverbs 22:6). Your child is worth fighting for!
