        "Because of its extreme political stance, Disney, wildly popular in its heyday, is now in trouble with a big chunk of the American people"

Trouble In Mouse-Land? ‘Woke’ Disney Takes Huge Hit In Trust: I&I/TIPP Poll

As part of our April I&I/TIPP poll, we asked 1,305 adults across America the following question: “How closely are you following the recent story about the opposition of some Disney employees to the new Florida law forbidding classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity from kindergarten through third grade?” ~~~~~~~ We followed up with a second question to those following the story: “As a result of the recent stories, how much trust would you place in Disney’s programming for your children, assuming you have any?” ~~~~~~~

Democrats overwhelmingly trust Disney’s programming — by a 77% to 19% margin. For Republicans, it’s nearly the reverse, only 23% now trust Disney programming, compared with 70% who don’t. Most telling, however, is the fact that independents no longer trust the Mouse: 42% say they trust Disney’s designs on their children, while 52% say they don’t. ~~~~~~~ Even Disney’s own shareholders are speaking up. “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,” DisneyBizJournal.com editor Ray Keating told Fox News Digital. ~~~~~~~

But of perhaps greater concern for the company’s future is the more direct political threat from outside the company. Congressional Republicans have talked about letting Disney's long-standing copyright on its No 1 icon, Mickey Mouse, lapse when it comes up for renewal, thus depriving the company of one of its most reliable, long-standing revenue streams.

DeSantis, meanwhile, has discussed possibly repealing the half-century-old legislation which gives Disney extraordinary political control over the Reedy Creek Improvement District. Never heard of it? It contains all of Disney World and much of the surrounding territory and gives the Disney execs near-total control over their domain. Without that untrammeled control, Disney’s extensive property holdings and the buildings on them become less valuable.

Finally, Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz is pushing to repeal loopholes in his state’s tax laws that let Disney avoid literally hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes there each year. “I envision a Sunshine State where all corporations play fair and, consequentially, hard-working Floridians pay less in taxes,” Gaetz said, saying he would call on both Democrats and Republicans in Florida’s legislature to “to act now and end the Disney tax loophole.”

So while Disney does have a majority of people saying they trust the company’s programming for kids, that trust is in fact quite narrow. Because of its extreme political stance, Disney, wildly popular in its heyday, is now in trouble with a big chunk of the American people, as the I&I/TIPP data indicate.

          "Given its core business model of supposedly ‘family-friendly entertainment for children,’ Disney’s backing of radical sexual indoctrination for young children has – rightly – caused a seismic backlash among its customer base."

New Poll Shows 68% of Americans Are "Less Likely" to Do Business with Disney Following its Pro-Groomer Crusade Against Florida's Parental Rights Bill - Stock Craters By Nearly $50 Billion

A few weeks ago, the woke warriors at Disney fired their opening salvo and waged an all-out war against the Florida legislature for introducing, and recently passing, legislation that bans radical sexual indoctrination from elementary school classrooms.

The bill, titled ‘Parental rights in Education,’ was baselessly slandered by the establishment as the so-called “don’t say gay” bill, which is nonsensical, as that language appears nowhere in the text of the bill. Nevertheless, Disney felt that the anti-groomer legislation was a hill that the billion-dollar mega-corporation was apparently willing to die on, with its executives and employees acting as some of the most vocal crusaders in the smear campaign against Florida’s parents.

Given its core business model of supposedly ‘family-friendly entertainment for children,’ Disney’s backing of radical sexual indoctrination for young children has – rightly – caused a seismic backlash among its customer base. Well, as the saying goes, ‘get woke, go broke.’ However, it’s a whole different game when people’s innocent children are involved, and Disney seems to be learning that lesson the hard way after seeing its company stock prices crater by nearly $50 billion since they planted their flag in the ground for the groomers.

According to the Washington Examiner, Disney has lost an astonishing $46.6 billion since March 1, just days before the company waged war with Florida, and the prospects for a turnaround anytime soon aren’t looking good.

From the Washington Examiner“Disney’s stock was down more than 2% on Friday and by more than 8.5% over the past few days as Florida lawmakers work to punish the company for wading into the state’s politics. The stock’s market cap has declined by about $46.6 billion since March 1, just days before the company came out against the legislation.”

In addition to the pummeling on the market, new polling shows that consumers are seriously reconsidering whether or not to stop doing business with Disney. A Trafalgar Group poll that was released this week showed that almost 70% of respondents are “less likely” to do business with the company because “news reports reveal Disney is focusing on creating content to expose young children to sexual ideas.” Just 9.4 percent said they would be “more likely” to do business with Disney after finding out about their agenda.

April 28, 2022 - GET WOKE! GO BROKE!

         "The student then approached him and told Meriwether that he was transgender and wanted to be referred to him as a woman. When Meriwether didn’t agree, the student complained to the university."

Professor Wins $400,000 From University That Harassed Him Over Pronoun Use

Professor Wins $400,000 From University That Harassed Him Over Pronoun Use

In January 2018, Professor Nicholas Meriwether at Shawnee State University responded to a male student’s question by saying “Yes, sir.” The student then approached him and told Meriwether that he was transgender and wanted to be referred to him as a woman. When Meriwether didn’t agree, the student complained to the university.

The student then filed a complaint with the university, which launched a formal investigation. Meriwether offered to call the student by first or last name, but the student insisted that Meriwether use pronouns and titles consistent with the student’s gender identity. University officials ultimately rejected any compromise that would allow Meriwether to speak according to his conscience and sincerely held religious beliefs. Instead, they formally charged him, saying “he effectively created a hostile environment” for the student simply by declining to use the feminine pronouns demanded by the student. Later, they placed a written warning in his personnel file and threatened “further corrective actions” unless he articulates the university’s ideological message.

Merriweather has officially won the legal battle against the university. The university must now pay Meriwether $400,000 to settle the lawsuit. Meriwether will also now not be forced to use anyone’s preferred pronouns.

        "Not in the case of trans. Here we have adults steering kids down a dangerous path, which involves permanent, life altering drugs and surgeries for which there is no good evidence base,"

          Do you really need a good evidence base to convince a boy he is not a girl and vice versa?

Mother says daughter's entire friend group 'discovered' that they are transgender

In a recent essay published to the substack "Parents with inconvenient Truths about Trans," one mother describes how her daughter and her friend group have all simultaneously decided that they are transgender. 

"My teenage daughter has decided that she is 'trans'. So have all her friends. Not some of them. Not most of them. Every. Single. One," the mother begins. She said that her daughter had never heard of the word trans, nor did she have any signs of gender dysphoria, until she was moved "to a new, cool trans-friendly school by her unsuspecting, politically liberal parents." ~~~~~~~ She said her daughter and her friends explored "trans stuff" online and found its "source of great interest and excitement." ~~~~~~~ Not in the case of trans. Here we have adults steering kids down a dangerous path, which involves permanent, life altering drugs and surgeries for which there is no good evidence base," she wrote.

         "Tucker responds in disbelief before asking Kerschner how she feels now that she reversed her initial transition and made it through that challenging time. She made her decision early and still had the opportunity to reclaim her body, something that many young people who are too far along in the transition process do not."

Courageous Young Woman Explains to Tucker Carlson Why She "De-Transitioned" and is Now Taking a Stand Against The Radical Transgender Agenda

~~~~~~~ Helena Kerschner, 23, explained to Carlson that when she went through puberty and was having issues with her body – as every teenager does – she was “completely exploited” by people who convinced her she was unhappy because she was actually of the opposite sex. Kerschner hopes to protect other children from this detrimental experience by sharing her story and speaking out on their behalf.

From Kerschner:

“As you said [Tucker] it’s completely normal for not only young girls but often young boys too to feel uncomfortable with themselves – uncomfortable with their body, but we have this ideology that is especially prevalent online that says that if you have those feelings that means you are trans.

There are people who say if you don’t even like your voice on a recording that’s a sign of gender dysphoria and you need to go see a medical professional because you’re trans.”

Through this lens, normal developmental behaviors become ‘signs’ of  gender dysphoria. According to PsychCentral, toddlers playing with toys that are meant for the opposite sex, a four-year-old saying he wants to wear a dress, and a “preference to play another gender in make-believe games”  all become abnormal behaviors.

“Talk about taking advantage of people,” Tucker responds in disbelief before asking Kerschner how she feels now that she reversed her initial transition and made it through that challenging time. She made her decision early and still had the opportunity to reclaim her body, something that many young people who are too far along in the transition process do not.

As she points out, even though ‘experts’ say a double mastectomy can be reversed with breast implants, “You can’t just take it back.” ~~~~~~~

I mean, when you go on a cross-sex hormone, like that’s going to give you not just physical changes, but psychological experiences that you can’t just act like they never happened, you can’t just take it back. And especially with surgeries, you know, a breast implant after a mastectomy is not the same thing as never having your breasts taken off in the first place. So there are a lot of young women who are going through that, who had a double mastectomy at 16, 17, 18 years old or even younger. There’s nothing you can really do to put that feeling of oneness and safety in your body back.”

          The bill text further notes that in the organization’s July 2021 conference, NEA officials adopted measures “to support critical race theory, calling it ‘reasonable and appropriate,’ and to spend $56,500 on researching and shaming organizations fighting the inclusion of critical race theory in schools.”

House GOPers Preparing Political Earthquake With Legislation to Withdraw the National Education Association's (NEA) Federal Charter

A bill co-sponsored by 18 House Republicans would remove the National Education Association’s (NEA) 116-year-old federal charter because of the union’s hyper-partisanship and support for extreme ideological policies such as critical race theory (CRT). “The NEA can no longer be considered a public service worthy of its federal charter as it has drifted substantially from its core mission and become a massive political operation dedicated to electing Democrats and imposing a radical progressive agenda on America’s schools,” reads the bill, HR 7510, which was introduced April 14.

The NEA was chartered in 1906 by Congress ‘‘to elevate the character and advance the interests of the profession of teaching; and to promote the cause of education in the United States,’’ according to HR7510. To date, the NEA is the only federally chartered labor union and, with that charter, it is “receiving a seal of approval from and support of their actions by Congress,” according to the proposal.

But the teachers union has strayed far from its original purpose, as reflected in the fact that, according to the proposal, “disclosures made to the [Department of Labor] Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS), from Sept. 6, 2019, to August 2021, the NEA spent over $116.7 million on political activities and lobbying, and in the 2020 election cycle, 95.7 percent of candidate campaign contributions by the NEA went to Democrat candidates.” ~~~~~~~ The bill text further notes that in the organization’s July 2021 conference, NEA officials adopted measures “to support critical race theory, calling it ‘reasonable and appropriate,’ and to spend $56,500 on researching and shaming organizations fighting the inclusion of critical race theory in schools.”

Critical race theory is the neo-Marxist view that all U.S. economic, political, and social institutions, including schools, since before the nation’s founding have been and continue to be organized to advantage white individuals and disadvantage “people of color,” including blacks, Hispanics and other nonwhite persons. It’s also a CRT claim that all white individuals are inherently and unalterably racist, while all persons of color are inherently and unalterably victims of white racism. At the same conference, NEA officials also expressed support for “the right to abortion, supporting illegal immigrant justice, and expanding professional development for educators to help create student Gender Sexuality Alliance clubs.”

Dr Vernon Coleman: “Children are being Destroyed”

~~~~~~~ There is evidence that as a result of the covid hysteria many children have become withdrawn and frightened of approaching strangers – especially if they are not wearing masks. A children’s charity has seen a massive rise in the incidence of mental and emotional problems in children under 11 years of age. Children are worried about dying, about their friends and family dying, about their future, about missing school, about loneliness, about future epidemics. The AIDS hysteria of the 20th century has become the covid hysteria of the 21st century.

As a result many are either not eating, or eating too much, and they are not sleeping. Panic attacks are becoming commonplace. A study of 10,000 parents showed that 30% of children were worried about catching the virus and 30% were worried about missing their education. Even more worrying 16% were afraid to leave their homes. More than half of the parents were worried about their children.

And yet deaths among healthy children are so rare that it has been suggested that lightning is a bigger threat to children and that it would make more sense to tell children to wear helmets to protect them against meteors than to recommend that they wore masks or practiced social distancing. Nevertheless, schools introduced masks and social distancing, and many teachers and parents want the restrictions to continue indefinitely – until the very last virus on earth has disappeared. ~~~~~~~

Forcing children to remain isolated has created huge psychological problems. Children from poorer families or where there is an unhappy home life have suffered most. Also, the lack of exercise will result in health problems and obesity. ~~~~~~~

Many children have become socio-phobic and are developing OCD.

Figures for suicide are nigh on impossible to obtain but suicide is widely recognized to be a leading cause of death in the 5-19 age group, and one survey showed a 50% increase in suicides in 2020 compared to 2019. I suspect the figure will grow.

In an attempt to escape from reality, children are spending vast amounts of time on the internet. Gaming addiction is becoming an increasing problem with cyberbullying adding to anxiety and depression. Sports and out of school activities have been abandoned or disrupted leading to increased boredom, loneliness and depression.

Equally worrying is the fact that altered behavior in children will frequently be diagnosed as ADHD and drugs such as Ritalin will be prescribed as a long-term remedy. All this for an infection which children hardly ever catch and hardly ever transmit.
