The Walt Disney Company’s stock took a real tumble after conservative leaders, and especially parents, exposed them for willfully pushing woke ideology on children.
Go woke, go broke.
CNBC reporter Carl Quintanilla took to social media to break the story on April 20:
“Disney is now the worst performing Dow stock over the past year — down 31.5%.”

Christopher Rufo, a Manhattan Institute senior fellow, who has been all over the freak show that is wokeness, established that the Disney Company is suffering from a self-inflicted loss when videos were released that expose the company’s woke ideology and how they were so eager to push LGBTQ+ wokeness into the content they serve up to children.
“Disney has lost more than $20 billion in shareholder value since the release of internal videos exposing the company’s plan to embed gender ideology into its children’s programming. It’s a strong opening shot against woke capital—and there is more to come.”

The company’s stock plummeted after Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis mentioned a plan to eliminate the special tax benefits Disney has enjoyed. DeSantis has hammered the media giant and theme park over its woke ideology. Then, the Florida Senate passed a bill that would end the self-governing state for Disney on April 20, according to Reuters.
Over the last year, Disney has come under heavy scrutiny when it was established that the company, that was founded on family-friendly programming, was taken over by people who never did a thing to create or build the mega media company who do not support traditional family values.
According to Public Opinion Strategies, 61% of Americans support the Florida governor’s “Parental Rights in Education” law, that the LGBTQ+ the little caret symbol and the Tilda thingy that sometimes goes over some Spanish letters lobby falsely dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill which doesn’t contain those words in the bill, and doesn’t even use the word gay. The law simply protects children K through third grade from being sexualized inside a classroom. Seriously, why do these teachers feel they need to tell their very young students about their lifestyle if they’re not grooming them for indoctrination? It’s such an evil thing to do to little kids that even a majority 55% of Democrats support the law.
Disney drew first blood in the public battles over the wokeness in school classrooms when it publicly criticized DeSantis over the law, that they too falsely referred to as “Don’t Say Gay,” they claimed should never have passed nor signed into law, releasing a statement that so far has close to 37,000 likes on Twitter.
“Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that. We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”

The stupidity of Disney’s statement is that none of what they insinuated was true. The Parental Rights in Education law does not attack LGBTQ+ people at all. Unless the movement believes that it should be allowed to sexualize young children in school classrooms. It doesn’t tell them they cannot be whoever they want to be. It doesn’t block anyone from employment. Nowhere does it even mention specific groups of people. It simply says that the classroom is not the place for adult employees to talk about gender ideology and sexual lifestyle to young children. In fact, I find it incredible that the Walt Disney Company is fighting such a law that protects children.
Here is the offending section of the law that has Disney and the rest of the reprobates who support sexualizing children in classrooms in an uproar:
3. Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.
That’s it. That is what they call the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. That one little paragraph is what has sent the LGBTQ+ community into an uproar. It tells teachers they have to work within the standards already setup by the state when in school.
Disney chose to fight for the right of a movement that wants to indoctrinate young children in the classroom against the wishes of their parents with sexualized language that children ages 5 through 8 should not have to listen to. They went woke and now they’re going broke with a 31.5% drop in their stock.
Another media streaming giant, Netflix, has recently suffered from going woke, admitting on Tuesday that the company lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter of 2022 after telling shareholders they expected to gain 2.5 million subscribers. When they later revealed they expect to lose another 2 million subscribers by the end of 2022, the stock dropped another 30%.
