WE WON: Disney’s CEO Waves White Flag On Woke Politics and Culture

Well, the folks over at “woke” Disney are waving the white flag of surrender after they got walloped by concerned parents for pushing an LGBTQ agenda on young, innocent kids. The new CEO is now backtracking on Disney’s progressive agenda, as the company faces-down some very hefty financial losses. Let’s be honest, in this day and age, nobody is too big to fall – just ask Netflix. The new Disney CEO held a town hall, where he seemingly admitted that their left-wing content has been bad for business.

It’s about time they saw the light.

On Tuesday, writer and filmmaker Christopher Rufo shared a video of Disney CEO Bob Iger expressing his intent to pull back from political programming.

“Do I like the company being embroiled in controversy? Of course not. It can be distracting and it can have a negative impact on the company. And to the extent that I can work to quiet things down, I’m going to do that,” Iger said, in an all-but-obvious reference to Disney’s involvement on the left wing of the American culture war.

Christopher Rufo is an amazing investigative journalist, and he’s the guy who got the full scoop.

In response to an audience question about the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” legislation, Iger said the company would still promote “inclusion,” but signaled that he would adopt a different posture than his processor and suggested that the company will “listen to [its] audience” and “have respect for the people that [it’s] serving.”

Iger also suggested that the company made a mistake in its fight against Governor DeSantis, which resulted in the state legislature stripping Disney of its special administrative status. “I was sorry to see us dragged into that battle,” he said. “The State of Florida has been important to us for a long time. And we have been very important to the State of Florida. That is something I’m extremely mindful of and will articulate if I get the chance.”

Finally, in response to the suggestion that “many cast members had wished that Disney stayed out of politics,” Iger expressed regret. “Do I like the company being embroiled in controversy? Of course not,” he said. “It can be distracting, and it can have a negative impact on the company. And to the extent that I can work to kind of quiet things down, I’m going to do that.”

This is an important shift. Iger is signaling that Disney is moderating its position in the culture war. As I have been saying for months, the conservative strategy was to damage Disney’s brand, make the company pay a political price, and force the company to declare neutrality.

So far, it appears that the strategy is working.

This is amazing news. What a victory we scored in the culture war.

Watch:

Keep up the pressure, and put all these woke companies on blast. They have no business becoming left-wing activists.
