    'Disney used to be a great American company. Now it's telling us America is a fundamentally racist country' Journalist Chris Rufo told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Friday he obtained a trove of "genuine" documents from The Walt Disney Company saying, as part of a training program, the company should "reject the idea of equality, that people should be treated equally, and pursue a policy of equity." CHRIS RUFO: Disney is saying is we should reject the idea of equality, that people should be treated equally, regardless of their skin color, and they say they need to pursue a policy of equity...

    Pixar has released a casting notice for its first transgender character. Pixar Animation Studios, a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company, is famous for its innovative computer animation style. The company is based out of Emeryville, CA, and is known often by its logo, a playful bouncing lamp named Luxo, Jr. Pixar originally produced animated short films, but then began collaborating with the Walt Disney Company, which was interested in Pixar's computer animation programming. In the early 1990s, Pixar made a deal with Disney to produce three computer-animated films – the first being Toy Story in 1995. In 2006, the...

    A Disney theme park superfan wrote a scathing op-ed in the Orlando Sentinel declaring that “wokeness” is ruining the Disney experience. Jonathan Vanboskerck takes yearly family vacations to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and takes a Disney Cruise every one to two years. The fan claims that Disney’s shifting political priorities have broken the magic of “immersion” at the famous theme park. According to Orlando Weekly, Disney Park Chairman Josh D’Amaro announced that the company would allow park employees to showcase different hairstyles and tattoos to create a more “inclusive” atmosphere. “Our new approach provides greater flexibly with respect to...

    Dana Walden, the chairman of entertainment for Walt Disney Television, recently said during a panel discussion that ABC passed on 'some incredibly well-written scripts' because they did not meet its new diversity standards. Walden made the comments during panel discussion titled 'Women in Focus: Women, Big Tech and the Future of Hollywood' put on by Chapman University and Glamour on April 9, the Hollywood Reporter revealed. Last year, the outlet reported that ABC was calling for at least 50% representation of 'underrepresented groups' in regular and recurring characters - as well as with writing staff and producers.

He provided an explanation on his YouTube channel: “The TOTS is logged on Disney Plus whenever a viewer stops watching a particular movie or television episode. It’s useful to the bean counters at Disney Plus to note when they lose a particular viewer because this can give them valuable data about how the show is doing and what that viewer thinks about it.

    ATLANTA, GA—Spokespeople for Major League Baseball announced today that the All-Star Game this summer will be moved from Atlanta, due to its egregious voting laws, to a Uyghur prison camp yard, where there aren't any bad voting laws at all. The game will be held in the spacious prison yard, which features a tall barbed-wire fence and a modest outfield. The venue features lots of free labor, so every role from the ball boys to the concession vendors won't cost the league a dime. In fact, the workers are already happily chalking the baselines and tending the grass, since if...

    Later this week, visitors to the Magic Kingdom will be able to go maskless — for photos, at least. Disney World said Tuesday that customers will be allowed to temporarily take off their masks while posing for outdoor photos beginning Thursday. Disney World did not comment further on what prompted the updated guidelines, which now say that “face coverings must be worn at all times except when dining or swimming,” or taking photos outside. The Orlando, Fla.-based theme park, which reopened in July, has strictly enforced mask wearing and social distancing during the pandemic. However, there have been cases where...

    Monopolist billionaires are recruiting -- paying -- nasty internet trolls to harass their critics, while simultaneously demanding that their Tech Monopolist cronies ban and censor their critics. YouTube, for example, just created another new tool so that Disney can silence its critics -- allowing corporations to turn off the "Dislike" counter on their videos. This is all obviously being done by mutual request. And you know that Bezos' cronies at Twitter aren't going to ban his Troll Army or punish Amazon for organizing a harassment campaign. This

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – When Southern California’s theme parks reopen as early as April, it could be with one very significant and silent difference: no screaming on rides.

California’s reopening guidelines calls for businesses to limit activities that can spread the virus, such as singing and shouting. That means that visitors to parks such as Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six...

The families portrayed in the commercial are happy, masked, having a good time all while the "Off to work we go" song is being played. The non-working will be very offended.

    As streamers build out their lucrative libraries, they are experimenting with label warnings, context panels and even purges: "These are valuable properties that you cannot just disregard. You want to keep them, but you have to make sure they don't damage the brand." Every month, Disney convenes an eclectic group of advisers via videoconference to tell the media conglomerate what it and the many entertainment companies it has acquired over its nearly 100-year history have gotten wrong. It's a long list. Song of the South. Jar Jar Binks. That episode of The Muppet Show where Johnny Cash sings a duet...

    Dissidents have been warning us for years about the nature of China's communist totalitarian regime. But unlike a lot of them, the dictatorship also has money and markets.In the West, that means quisling defenders, many with a snoot in the trough.So here comes a pitched curve ball for China's clapping seals, according to the South China Morning Post:A Chinese court has upheld a ruling that a textbook description of homosexuality as "a psychological disorder" was not a factual error but merely an "academic view".The Chinese LGBT community, and the 24-year-old woman who filed the lawsuit, have expressed disappointment at the...

    Cougar Encounter in Utah | Mountain Lion Stalks Me For 6 Minutes! I found what I thought were bobcats on the trail during a run. Turns out they were cougar cubs and their mother was not happy to see me. She escorted me for over six minutes to get me away from her cubs. Although she was acting very aggressive, the cougar had no intent on hurting me. The mother cougar was most likely caught off guard and did what she had to do to protect her cubs. Mama, cubs, and I are safe.

Following Gina being fired, #CancelDisneyPlus​ trended on Twitter, and today, Gina is trending as the most popular celebrity on the planet, according to IMDB. Let's see how Disney reacts to the news.

    The National Football League did not have a very good year in terms of television ratings. Though, you wouldn’t know that based on what they’re asking their broadcast partners to pay. The NFL is asking their broadcast partners – NBC, Fox, CBS, ESPN (Disney) – to pay double what they have been paying for the right to broadcast NFL games. However, Disney-owned ESPN is throwing sand in the NFL’s gears.
