The once-beloved entertainment juggernaut known as Disney has hit some hard times. The company was revered at the top family-friend studio in Hollywood. But these days, they seem more like an enemy to traditional family values… and anyone that goes against the left’s agenda.
Disney dared to go after Florida for passing a law that protects children at schools. During the blowout, it was revealed that Disney’s top executives have made it their goal to push radical, gay and transgender material via their kid-focused content.
That quickly sparked outrage—and low box office returns for their latest movie Lightyear. Now, Disney is suffering another humiliating defeat, a drop in stock value.
One year ago, a share of Walt Disney Co. stock was worth nearly $180.00. Today, it’s worth — laughably — just $93.
As Red State, who first reported on this, points out: “Disney stock has plummeted nearly 50 percent as their political-infused productions continue to turn away audiences and garner angry fan reactions.” […]
Disney has broken the three legs of its stool: Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. What once was entertaining is now two things people hate about movies: 1) woke lectures and 2) sitting there stressed out waiting for the woke lecture. People do not go to the movies to be made uncomfortable, stressed out, or to have the innocence of their children shattered by same-sex sex or anything else. [Source: Breitbart]
To be sure, Disney and their industry “experts” will blame this sudden drop in stock value on other things. But a company that runs a top streaming app, operates numerous theme parks, owns several television channels, and releases big-budget blockbusters several times a year should not see its stock plunge.
Excuses aside, Disney has to see the writing on the wall. They have given up political neutrality to embrace the radical left. They are using their movies and shows to deliver Democrat talking points to children and families. They have torched decades of goodwill and trust to prop up a failing political party.
All because the executives at Disney don’t want you to think for yourself.
We can’t predict what will happen next for Disney. Its stock could rebound. Perhaps they will take a page out of Netflix’s book and stop all this woke/gay/social justice programming. We don’t know. They might not be smart for that.
But what we do know is that it’s going to take a whole lot to win back the families they lost. You don’t just burn down a bridge—and a bridge so important as moral values—and expect it to pop back up so quickly.
There might be many dark years ahead for this once cherished company.
