Disney’s brand took hit after hit last year, and 2023 is off to a similar start.
Mouse House’s decision to inject itself into the culture wars pushed its stock price in 2022. The company’s animation arm also suffered two high-profile duds – “Light Year” and “Strange World”.
The company’s tactics can be seen in the new Salem Media feature, “Walt’s Disenchanted Kingdom” (Note: This reporter is featured in the documentary)
Disney is starting the new year on a familiar note.
Disney+ just unveiled the second season of “The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder.” The animated reboot follows Penny Proud and her family, who are black. According to Disney, the show addresses cultural issues with the usual animated high jinks aimed at younger audiences.
A part of the show’s “Juneteenth” episode is generating a lot of attention The episode featured wall-to-wall Critical Race Theory-style preaching.
Here’s a peek at the dialogue in question:
“This country was built on slavery – meaning slaves built this country”
“We descendants of slaves in America earned compensation for their suffering…and we continue to earn compensation for every moment we spend immersed in a systemic prejudice, racism, and white supremacy that America was founded with and has yet to atone for.”
The official clip of the episode in question has turned off YouTube users’ ability to comment.
The right-leaning host of “The Megyn Kelly Show” shares her opinions without any big tech censors to stop her or show off guest Jesse Kelly.
“It’s a reflection of what our culture has become, a big bunch of grievance-mongering whiners … ‘America sucks because of this, it sucks because of that,'” said Kelly, a nationally syndicated radio show host.
Kelly could not contain his anger at the parade of misinformation aimed at impressionable minds.
“It’s completely dirty,” Kelly said.
“The anger that they put in the faces of these little kids … on the other hand, it’s like any little kid walking around America today, saying, ‘We want reparations,'” Megyn Kelly said. “They’re trying to plant these ideas early.”
“How crazy is it that Disney is coming off a year where the CEO got the ax … after all these losses they decided to double down and triple down on everything that put American families off,” Jesse Kelly said. “It’s all activism, all the time. It’s crazy that it’s allowed into the boardroom.”
“They’re trying to make these babies hatred America,” Megyn Kelly said. “It’s just racism. It’s a channel that’s supposed to appeal, I guess, to black families. What black families? Do they assume that all black families hate America and want to demand reparations and say that We didn’t get past slavery? Who are the black families coming out with?”
“Louder and Prouder” show executive producer Bruce W. Smith told Liberal Screen Rant why the “Juneteenth” episode is personally important to him.
How cool is that [‘Juneteenth’] Always be there now as an episode of The Proud Family’s canon. You’ll always be able to see it, and it’ll always spark a conversation at some point.
It’s the same when you’re talking about compensation. We discussed compensation in one of our episodes, which is a topic that was never on the table in school. But now, thankfully, it’s in the show’s canon. That’s what I’m most proud of.
