Despite Disney executives cowering at the LGBTQ lobby within their company, there are many voices in the House of Mouse who support the very law the company is actively fighting against.
Progressive employees of The Walt Disney Company have used their positions to make Disney their shield and sword against Florida Governor Rob DeSantis and the State of Florida.
Disney executives have come out of the woodwork to oppose a bill that prevents the teaching of sexuality and transgenderism to children between kindergarten and third grade. Many of them have used the issue to highlight their own willingness to target young children with LGBTQ messages within the company.

While it seems like everyone at Disney is tripping up on left-leaning politics, many of their own employees are forced to air their displeasure with Disney’s decision in secret for fear of retaliation.
Earlier this week, messages were leaked by a cast member to Human Events Daily’s Jack Posobiec from internal communications boards showing that many Disney employees are in favor of the bill and are not dissenting. agreement with the strong opposition of the company towards him.

While names and photos have been blacked out to protect the identities of employees speaking out, their posts show a growing level of concern about the company’s political stance and the voices come from diverse backgrounds.
An anonymous employee who identifies as gay has detailed his support for Florida’s Parental Bill. In the email, they state: “I support the bill, I am gay and believe that any form of sex education should not be taught until you are old enough to understand it. Not when you are young and influential with the people who teach you.

The employee goes on to call out to those who oppose the bill, “Leave the bill alone because it does NOT harm ANY member of the LGBT community.” they said.
“If you think that’s the case, then maybe the problem is that you want children to be involved in sexual activity before they’re physically and mentally ready for it,” concluded the anonymous actor.
A second employee not only championed the bill, but shed light on issues of abuse within the company.
“This bill empowers parents. As a parent, I would like my child’s teacher to come to me and tell me what is going on. I strongly believe that Disney should not be involved in anything political at all,” the employee said. “The Disney company claims they don’t do political fundraising, but here they say they stop all fundraising.”

The employee would later state in his post, “Cast members are forced to work MANDATORY overtime every week, benefits are slowly dwindling, and we are berated and terrorized by wealthy, empowered guests who think we are here to cut block because they moved their stroller.
“Disneyland and Walt Disney World parks are beginning to descend into disaster due to prices rising, food portions shrinking and Cast Members not wanting to work because the company is forcing them to work MANDATORY overtime until to mental exhaustion. “, added the employee.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek has announced he will embark on a “listening tour” to hear the impact of Florida’s anti-grooming legislation on employees. But it is clear that only one side is brought to the table. A third employee denounced the hypocrisy of this statement saying that the company was not open to all forms of discussion.
The employee said: “Disney shouldn’t take a political stance on anything that affects ALL of its employees in one way or another. It doesn’t matter which side you take, you exclude the other. Leave the place be the workplace and live your life at home.

A final employee echoed the thoughts of his colleagues while calling out people who oppose Florida’s bill without even reading the bill itself.
“Let the kids be kids,” the employee wrote. “Most people are very unaware of the actual wording of what the bill says and who it applies to. This does not apply to homosexuals or trans people. This applies to our education system.
“The Governor of Florida and the State Legislature felt compelled to craft a bill that gives parents the right to raise their children and regulate our school systems. If children ask questions about gender then I think that is the responsibility and discretion of parents but also if teachers are questioned by students then teachers should communicate this to parents as stated in the bill said the employee.
In recent weeks, key Disney employees such as executive producer Latoya Raveneau and president of Disney General Entertainment Content Karey Burke have admitted to supporting the company’s attempt to advance the LGBTQ agenda within their brand. .
Burke explained how important it was to her to have “lots, lots and lots of LGBTQIA characters in our stories” as a mother of transgender and pansexual children.

Following this, hundreds of demonstrators descended on Disney’s corporate headquarters in Burbank, Calif., to protest the company’s sudden embrace of the far left.
The protest, organized by Christian group Hold the Line, took place outside the main gate of Disney’s headquarters where a large part of them protested ‘Boycott Disney’ outside the gates.
A viral video of a woman who identified as a conservative Disneyland employee explained how difficult it has become for right-wing employees to have their voices heard at the company.

“I’m a cast member here, well for Disneyland actually, I’ve been with them for quite a long time,” the woman said.
“It’s become very political and it’s become very difficult to be who you are. It’s become very difficult to be someone who has conservative values. Someone who believes in the right to choose, someone who ‘one who believes it’s okay to uphold justice It’s okay to uphold justice.
She would later add, “All the Disney cast members who are afraid to be bold, who are afraid to be brave, stand up. It’s okay, you’re not alone.

As voices dissenting from Disney’s progressive agenda continue to grow, that hasn’t stopped the company from bending the knee to them.
In a leaked video by Christopher F. Rufo of the Manhattan Institute, Bob Chapek apologized to Disney’s LGBTQ activists during the company’s “Reimagine Tomorrow” conference call. Chapek pleaded with the LGBTQ lobby, promising to be “a better ally for the LGBTQ+ community and not be the ally you needed me to be.”
“I want you to know that your words had a real impact on me,” he added. “I understand that we made mistakes, and the pain of those mistakes caused, and I know that our silence was not just about the bill in Florida, but whenever an individual or institution that should have stand up for this community, didn’t,” he said.

If employees opposed to Disney’s progressiveness are going to have ANY impact on the future of the company, they’re going to need a much louder voice because Disney shows no signs of backing down from the demands of their LGBT lobby.
