I stopped at, "Disney has made no secret that it pushes a pro-gay agenda." Because the colors of the rainbow will turn your kids gay. That's the argument. Really.

Really? I stopped at the headline.

Anytime someone says "gay agenda" I immediately tune them out for being bigoted morons. Nothing worthwhile can come after that.

Huh. Looks like TBO has pulled TFA.

MacKinnon's "WAHHHH", via Google Cache:

In many ways, the Walt Disney Co. is an exceptional business model. I can't think of a corporation that produces more smiles on the faces of children and adults than the company created by animator Walt Disney in the 1920s.

For the majority of people, everyday life can be a struggle, and the magic of Disney makes those struggles more bearable. Disney shows and movies gave me a much-needed escape when I was a child growing up in poverty. And as an adult, I have enjoyed the company's parks and ships.

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.

Last year, Disney reportedly had revenue of more than $45 billion and a net income of more than $6 billion, so there is a good chance Iger and his team don't care if half the nation is troubled that Disney's children's programming is shilling for the Obama White House or any other liberal cause. They have made the corporate decision to push their adult ideology upon children ages 2 to 12, and who's to stop them?

While those who cherish traditional values may not like it, the left controls most of the media, entertainment and "education" in our country. As such, it allows them to re-educate our youth whenever the mood strikes them.

The Disney Co. does much good and brightens the lives of millions around the world, especially children. Because of that, I wish they had stayed in the business of entertaining those children and left the indoctrination to someone else.

companies SHOULD stay out of politics.

except of course when I agree with a company's politics, like Hobby Lobby or W.W. Bridal Boutique.  because then it's a matter of Free Speech and Freedom of Religion and StopOppressingMe.

but all those other companies should shut the fark up.

I guess this is just the next logical step in "homosexuality isn't something that you're just born with", because apparently Disney is now making kids turn gay by watching their shows. Have you ever heard Mickey Mouse's voice? He's gay as a $3 bill. Thanks Disney!

At least they're not crying about the "Witchcraft" crap any more, because if a Disney movie turns your child to the dark arts, then maybe your Jesus isn't as awesome as you think he is.

How DARE they use pink, red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue or purple in their goddamn shows!! Why, if black and white TV was good enough for John Wayne and Ronald Reagan, why should we add COLORS?

Y'all know it's the gays who invented color, right? They are the entire reason that Communism rose, did you know that? Without red, we wouldn't HAVE Reds. Same with the Nazis, they used red, too, and look where THAT got us.

Farking gays and their colors...

Once again, conservatives think about homosex way more than actual gays do. They see gay everywhere. Actual gays have actual lives in which homosex is only a small part. Conservatives are in straitjackets screaming "gays! gays! gays!".
 
2014-08-14 01:35:23 PM  
Parents of small children are typically in their 20's and 30's.

This cohort is strongly supportive of gay rights.

Disney is VERY good at producing content that young children enjoy and their parents don't mind them watching.

Disney isn't going to go out of their way to make an overtly pro-gay movie, but there's no way in hell they're going to make an anti-gay one.
 
2014-08-14 01:36:42 PM  
I think anyone who has ever watched Calum Worthy do his job portraying the character "Dez" on the Disney show "Austin & Ally" knows Disney has a pro-gay agenda.

And for that, hundreds of thousands of troubled, conflicted teens are probably grateful.

No, no, no. Pint and turquoise are fine. The gay flag is the colors of the rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet - those are the bad colors. The really scarey part is that the American flag is already two-thirds gay! That's why White is so important. It keeps the gay away.

You guys want to know what the REAL gay agenda is?


It consists entirely of acting like a worthless imbecile until you're 27, then arranging to live with your sister for 2 years while you start school, in exchange for being nanny to her new daughter. 5 1/2 years later, you need to only be paying the internet bill as you are STILL going to school.

At least that is my brother in law's agenda.Goddamn leech. I really don't think he has much more of an agenda, except to hit the Pride Festival each year. Everything else is pretty much a play it by ear thing...

Plus, the company apparently went to hell when the Jews took over.

As I was raised Catholic and I remember when the rainbow use to be a wholesome symbol of how God flooded the entire world in anger and almost entirely drowned every person and creature on earth.  Now it is just a sick and twisted representation of love and tolerance of diversity.  Disgusting.

I will say this. There is a strong case to be made that Disney has a noticeable anticlerical bias in their movies. I lost a bet with someone over this, so I'll throw it out to the Fark team:

Off the top of your head, name any Disney depiction of a priest, monk, friar, reverend, cardinal, or other 'man of the cloth'.

Now how many of them are depicted in a negative light? Evil, drunk, bafoonish, uncaring, unhelpful, etc.
