The conservatives at Disney

Only in Florida…California Disney requires a four year degree from a liberal school!

I just came back from a family visit to Disney. Yes, yes, I’ve been watching the news about Disney’s stupid comments about Florida’s anti-grooming laws. Yes, I know some people totally went on a Disney boycott and canceled their vacations. But that’s not me. I’d been planning a Disney trip since March 2020, and now two years later I wasn’t going to tell my kids we couldn’t go.

So we drove the nearly 12 hours to Disney, stayed at a nearby Marriott and went to Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

Did I see any crazy wokeism.


I was looking for it to. Sure, the guy handing us our parking pass to Epcot had a really, really nice manicure (although black really isn’t his color!), but otherwise I didn’t see anything overt. All of my kids interactions with characters were…normal. Elsa didn’t try to persuade my son he was really a girl, nor did Alice in Wonderland try to talk my daughters into kissing other girls. Heck, we even heard “Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls!” when we were at Magic Kingdom.

Even stranger was the interaction I had with a security guard. Since I was pushing the stroller with two little kids, I went in a separate line to get screened. The guard noticed the Navy command on my hat (which is not obvious, so he was paying particular attention to me) and asked if I was in the service. After I told him I was, he asked me a strange question:

“Are you a fan of the former President?”

To which I replied “In fact, I am.”

Then he knocked me to the ground with a chop across my back, handcuffed me and yelled “F%^&ing J6 insurrectionist!” right in my face!

Just kidding, that didn’t happen. Instead, he reached into his pocket, pulled out a coin and handed it to me.

Yup, I was not expecting that. That coin is now proudly displayed in my coin rack at home.

Now, I’m not making excuses for Disney’s actions. They’ve had a woke problem for years. It’s sad because Walt Disney himself was a pretty great American. At the parks there is a museum devoted to Walt Disney’s artistic talent, and I was surprised by the large number of war related propaganda and cartoons he drew. The man was truly American, and to have to watch lesser men take his company and its legacy and flush it down the toilet to please a bunch the alphabet people is just sad.

But perhaps there is some hope for Disney. Removing their special governance was a solid shot across the bow. Perhaps we’ll see more conservative shareholders and more conservative employees voice their displeasure, and maybe Disney will get back on track. If nothing else, there are far more fellow conservatives at Disney than I would have given it credit for.

Oh, I am heartily tired of hearing about what Lee is going to do. Some of you always seem to think he is suddenly going to turn a double somersault, and land in our rear and on both of our flanks at the same time. Go back to your command, and try to think what are we going to do ourselves, instead of what Lee is going to do.

You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.

2 Samuel 12:12

Several things have come to mind with the fall of Disney, the Fall of Netflix and the upcoming fall of Twitter.

The first of course if how empires tend to fall, slowly then all at once.

The 2nd is how much of a difference fighting back means. The left was positive that nobody would resist them. The LGBTQ+ lobby were so powerful that even a company as powerful as Disney backed down, but once DeSantis stood up to them suddenly Disney, a company that employees over 30 lobbyists in Florida was unable to stop their privileges’ from being revoked and the further tanking of their stock

The 3rd is how thin and weak the left’s power actually is

Don’t think it’s not a coincidence that Exxon Mobil is rethinking the flying of the LGBTQ+ and BLM flags in front of their headquarters once people see that the cost letting a tiny minority intimidate you is higher then paying the Danegeld, the Danegeld will no longer be paid.

After all why do you think Kaepernick is begging for a chance at a football paycheck these days, the woke money is all gone.

The 4th is how contagious courage is: Once GOP pols see that this plays well with the voters, Particularly Latino voters who the left all assumed were radical activists, you’ll see these laws repeated and more Democrats howling off camera because they never were taught how to deal with defeat or negotiate with someone who disagrees with them.

But the biggest lesson of all of this is for the Deep state types and the activist types was is this:

None of this happens if they had made deals with Trump.

Note I didn’t say: “None of this happens if they don’t steal election 2020” I said none of this happens if they make deals with Trump.

Let’s go back to 2016. My biggest fear concerning Donald Trump was that he was a dealmaker. He was all about having specific goals for America and getting them done and right from the start he was willing to make deals with the Democrat left to get these things done.

This was no surprise, after all he had built hotels in blue cities and blue states and had been making deals with these guys all his life. He knew who and what they were and didn’t care. Their petty power trips, their perverted proclivities and their hereditary hubris where meaningless to him, except perhaps as something to note for future reference.

He wanted to get things done and as long as they helped him to do or stayed out of his way as far as he was concerned what they were doing wasn’t his business.

If Pelosi and Schumer and the rest of the left had played ball with Trump early they would have been in clover. He would have given them and their social agenda support to get his programs through. Not only would they have shared credit but all their nasty shit would have stayed under the radar. Time would have taken care of the Trump years and the deep state and all within it would have continued on unseen and unopposed except by a few of us.

I was very afraid they would figure this out, that they did not is one of the most unrecognized consequential moments in the history of America in the 21st century.

None of this happens without that failure, as a backup they could have chosen to not steal the last election then they would have had to endure only four more years of Trump and things would have been back to normal.

Now with the public reverses they have suffered they will find that having sewn the wind they will reap the whirllwind.

The Lord sure moves in mysterious ways.
