BURBANK— A Wednesday Disney protest featuring a cast member and Christian artist Sean Feucht brought together over 200 activists and gave momentum to a growing boycott movement with more news of Disney seeking to produce content that grooms young children into a woke sexual ideology.
“I’m a cast member here, for Disneyland actually. I’ve been with them for quite a long time and it has gotten very political and it’s gotten very hard to be who you are. It’s gotten very hard to be someone who has conservative values,” said the unidentified Disney employee.
“It’s okay to stand up for righteousness. Any Disney cast members that are afraid to be bold, that are afraid to be courageous, stand up. It’s okay. You’re not alone.”
The Wednesday protest which started at Disney headquarters at 1118 Alameda Avenue marched to the Disney Arch. Protesters chanted “Boycott Disney.” The Hold the Line rally For our Kids was spearheaded by worship leader Sean Feucht, the father of four children, who talking about his daughter said: “I knew my life is more about her destiny than my own. I’m living for the next generation. They can call us white nationalists, racists, homophobics, but they will never get me to stop fighting for my kids.”
The Disney protest comes in the wake of the company attacking Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for signing a parental rights bill (Parents Rights in Education) in Florida with critics calling the legislation “Don’t Say Gay” despite the fact the word “gay” in not in the text of the law which prohibits educators from teaching about gender identity and sexual orientation from pre-K through third grade.
The Disney protest was launched in less than 72-hours. The promotional video stated:
“Calling all parents. Calling the church. We’ve had enough.” A video showing people holding signs and placards posted on Twitter by Drew Hernandez has gone viral and been viewed over 400,000 times. It can be viewed at:
