The Walt Disney Company was founded by Walt Disney and his brother Roy in 1923. A huge company, it includes making movies, the theme parks of Disneyland and Disney World, and merchandising stores as well as buying out many other companies. The scope and size of the company has grown considerably since Walt's death with the purchase of the ABC broadcast network in the 1990s. It a component of the Dow 30 stocks. While Mr. Walt Disney was socially conservative, the company is now a secular-progressive organization, courtesy of liberal Michael Eisner, as well as continued with and even doubled down by Robert Iger.
The Disney corporation has been accused of grooming children for the homosexual and transgender lifestyles. This became obvious in 2017 when the Beauty and the Beast live-action remake film as well as a Disney Channel animated show Star vs. the Forces of Evil included overt homosexual propaganda. In addition, Disney and its affiliates had increased its leftward push significantly. It is suspected that the growing increase in promoting the leftist agenda, many times disregarding whether it was profitable, was to promote Iger's possible run for the 2020 Presidential Elections as the Democrat candidate. In February 2019, Disney announced it would host its first "LGBT pride" event, holding it at Disneyland Paris. Despite this, it appeared that Disney had some reserves, as it refused to film Greg Berlanti's coming-out propaganda webseries "Love, Simon" due to deeming it too family unfriendly for it to show on DisneyPlus (though there's evidence to suggest that the underlying reasons dealt more with pragmatism due to both dwindling returns as well as the then-ongoing Wuhan virus shutting down theaters and other locations). In the weeks following Disney Corp. openly declaring support for child grooming of children ages kindergarten through 3rd grade, Disney stock lost $46 billion in value.
On May 8, 2021, it was uncovered by Tucker Carlson that the Walt Disney Company had implemented far-left woke policies, including seminars claiming that America was founded on "systemic racism", encouraging the usage of "white privilege" checklists for employees, and also segregating minorities into various "affinity groups" among others. This caused a massive uproar.
Disney has also been race swapping most notably with Snow White and Ariel, but also rebooted “The Wonder Years” and gave it an all black main cast, despite the old one being White.
Disney stock tanked in the spring of 2022 and its market capital valuation lost $63 billion in value as shareholders became more aware of the Disney board's active support for the homosexual agenda and child grooming for deviant sexual lifestyles.
After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the company along with other corporations announced that it will pay travel expenses for employees to go get abortions.

The Walt Disney Company was founded in 1923 by brothers Walt (1901-1966) and Roy O. Disney (1893-1971), and the top project of the duo was animation. Initially working with Universal, Walt created Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in 1927, before it got taken from him. One year later, Walt and Ub Iwerks created Mickey Mouse in “Steamboat Willie” which was the first cartoon to have synchronized sound. The company had success in the early 1930s, but Walt then took a major risk in creating the first animated film in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” which made tons of money, and launched Disney into stardom. The company made pro-American WWII cartoons after the box office underperformances of “Pinocchio” and “Fantasia,” and by the 1950s, started to make animated films again, but with some live-action features as well. In 1950, there was the animated “Cinderella” and the live-action “Treasure Island.” After more successes, Disneyland was built in California in 1955, with a planned Disneyworld to open in Florida some time later. In 1964, Disney made the live-action “Mary Poppins” which got nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, but Walt would die in late 1966, with “The Jungle Book” slated for release in 1967.
The post Walt era was an innovative, but dark time for Disney. CEOs Don Tatum and Card Walker struggled to put together a group to succeed the “Nine Old Men,” and with young animator Don Bluth’s departure in 1979 with many animators following him. Ron Miller (Walt’s son-in-law) Produced “The Black Hole” in 1979 which was Disney’s first PG film. Three years later, “Tron” got the green light from Miller which was one of the first films to use CGI. Throughout this time, Miller launched Disney Home Video, helped launch The Disney Channel, was instrumental in starting Tokyo Disneyland which was the first park outside the US, and due to “The Black Hole” and “Tron” not being major hits, Miller founded “Touchstone Pictures” so the company can make more mature films, without the Disney label. It’s first film was “Splash,” and it was a major hit. It helped kickstart the career of Tom Hanks, and got nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars. However, due to Miller’s leadership during Saul Steinberg’s buyout attempt, Roy E. Disney led the effort to fire Miller, and replace him with Paramount CEO Michael Eisner.
In 1985, “The Black Cauldron” hit theaters, and it was the first ever PG rated animated feature from Disney, and it bombed at the Box Office. Moving the animation team off the Burbank Lot, and into trailers in Glendale. After moderate success with “The Great Mouse Detective” and “Oliver and Company” which both lost to Don Bluth films, the company brought in open homosexual songwriter Howard Ashman to write songs for them. He wrote “Once Upon a Time in New York City” in “Oliver and Company,” and did “The Little Mermaid,” and it’s success at the Box Office and with music launched it into what fans call the “Renaissance era.” But proved to push Disney from the most Conservative studio in Hollywood into a Liberal corporation that pushes the homosexual agenda down everyone’s throat. Ashman continued to write songs for Disney, doing “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin,” but died of AIDS before they came out, with many of his Aladdin songs cut due to changes made to the story. Disney continued to make big hits, but by the new millennium, they slowed down a bit, and former Disney Studio Chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks was gaining momentum with 3D Animation, as well as Disney partner Pixar. Eisner then transitioned the company into the 3D era, with the traditional 2D animation team being sidelined.
After Eisner’s departure in 2005, Bob Iger took over. He led the effort for Disney to buy Pixar in 2006, Marvel in 2009, Lucasfilm in 2012, and Fox in 2019. Unlike Eisner, Iger was not shy in addressing his political beliefs, and wanted Disney as a company to made statements too. He endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, and tried to advise Donald Trump to take a more liberal stance on immigration. Iger has also criticized current CEO Bob Chapek for not being as political as him.
In 2022, Ron DeSantis signed “The Parental Rights in Education Act” in Florida in an attempt to stop grooming kids into the homosexual lifestyle. At first neutral, Bob Chapek then slammed the bill, and vowed to repeal it due to being reminded of Howard Ashman and animator Andreas Deja.
