Christoper F. Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor with City Journal writes about the Walt Disney Company, “a company founded 99 years ago and associated in the public mind with wholesale family entertainment.”
Rufo noted, “I've been reporting on Disney for more than a year and I have good sources inside the company that Disney was forcing employees to engage in a critical race theory training program that denounced America as fundamentally racist.”
Disney issued a press release denying the charge and deleted information on the controversial training program from its internal website.
Rufo pointed out, “that a much bigger controversy began when Disney waded into a political fight with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after DeSantis signed a bill, passed by the state legislature, that prohibited teaching about gender ideology, sexual orientation and sexuality in kindergarten, first, second and third grade classrooms.”
Rufo wrote that “acting against its own apparent business interest, Disney came out publicly in opposition to the Florida legislation.”
The City Journal contributing editor added, “Americans were shocked to see Disney secretly trying to change, in a fundamental way, how children think about sexuality by engineering a narrative based on gender ideology.
“Disney’s record on the issue of children and sexuality casts doubt on its claim to moral authority,” Rufo added.
The contributing editor pointed out that, “we make a mistake in thinking about politics simply in terms of a left versus right dynamic when the opportunity really lies today in focusing on a top versus bottom dynamic.”
Rufo plainly stated that, “an elite class of people are acting on their own interest and against the interest of the vast majority of Americans, those who are still attached to the idea that America is a force for good and think that young children should be protected from the imposition of radical gender ideology.”
