Front Page Mag: There was this odd misunderstanding going around conservative circles, promoted by some ignorant influencers, that the Disney coup was a rebuke to the company’s embrace of wokeness.
Exactly the opposite.
Bob Iger, who had championed wokeness, orchestrated the downfall of CEO Bob Chapek, who had tried to take a less aggressive stance on radical politics. Now Iger is back and declaring vocally that Disney intends to double and triple down on its political extremism. That’s even as Strange World, Disney’s big film entry, designed around wokeness, just bombed massively at the box office.
… the corporate giant’s stance on LGBTQ+ inclusion.
The latter was an Achilles heel for Chapek in his roughly two-year run as CEO. After floating the message that Disney should not be involved in politics, employees and content creators led a full-on social media rebellion decrying his silence on issues like Florida’s incendiary policies on trans children and classroom policies in acknowledging queer people.
When asked Monday during an employee Q&A about where the studio would now fall on the matter, Iger said “one of the core values of our storytelling is inclusion, and acceptance and tolerance. And we can’t lose that, we just can’t lose that… how we actually change the world through the good must continue. We’re not going to make everyone happy all the time, and we’re not [going to] try to. We’re certainly not going to lessen our core values in order to make everyone happy all the time.”
The remarks were tweeted by numerous employees at the content studios, as well as parks and stores. One staffer noted that Iger’s answer came with “no hesitation.”

Opinion: Inclusion is defined as the practice or policy of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those who have physical or mental disabilities and members of other minority groups.
The obvious question for Disney’s CEO is what about pedophiles, now called ‘minor attracted persons’ by the progressive left, are they included in Disney’s plan? What about rapists who say they just can’t help it, or what about adulterers or …?
In Paul’s letter to the Corinthians 6:9-11, a list is provided that will make the progressive left apoplectic.
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you.”
Paul is reminding us that these sins against a holy God may be considered inclusive in this age – but not in the next.
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Galatians 6:7
