Disney Unveils First Openly Gay Character…Here’s Why They’re Getting Slammed By the Left

Published

on

It’s funny that so many people on the left like to slam the “religious right” for being so legalistic and judgemental. While Christians tend to believe that we’re all sinners who have fallen short of the glory of God and are in need of a Redeemer who will save us by Grace alone, identity politicians have an intricate hierarchy of virtue based on varying degrees of “marginalized” people and the right of those to say or do certain things.

All this is to say that people on the left are far more legalistic and religious than those on the right will ever be, particularly when you consider there’s not even an end to their dramatic displays of virtue signaling and faux outrage.

They seem to simply be competing for who can be the most offended or claim possession of the most victim cards, and this is definitely a contest in which everyone gets a trophy. Yet no one ever seems to be satisfied.

One of the recent losers in this competition is Disney, who clearly thought they’d nailed a PC win when they decided to unveil their first official openly gay character…and subsequently got slammed for it.

You see, the LGBT community can’t be happy with this landmark role in a Disney film…because the character is just too cliche.

A source told The Sun that British comedian Jack Whitehall will be playing the character, who will be “hugely effete, very camp and very funny.” Whitehall is not only playing a pretty sterotypical homosexual man, the actor himself is at the very bottom rung of the intersectional caste system: the dreaded straight, white, cisgender male. 

The horror!

Sky News reports:

Omar Sharif Jr, son of the late Oscar-nominated Egyptian actor, asked Disney on Twitter: “Your first significant gay role will be played by a straight white man perpetuating stereotypes? Fail! This ship should sink.”

Fellow actor Chris Salvatore told Disney to “do better”, adding: “Such a dam [sic] shame it’s so hard to find gay actors to play gay roles in Hollywood.”

Actor and producer Emerson Collins added: “It’s too bad there weren’t any out actors who are regularly called some euphemism for ‘too camp’ by casting directors, studios, networks, executives etc. for literally any role who were available for this Disney ‘first’.”

This is everything wrong with left-wing identity politics. It’s why we see, in the freest, safest, and most equal society for the most marginalized members of the intersectional caste system–women, people of color, transgenders, and homosexuals, the constant rhetoric that these groups are in severe danger constantly.

When you constantly seek the validation of man by descending into a neverending spiral of convincing yourself you’re a perpetual victim, you will soon become that–only you’re a victim of your own quest to justify a lifestyle that perhaps you know, deep down, can’t be justified before the Lord.

Maybe if these people stopped trying to force the approval of their fellow man–who can never satisfy the way God can–they would seek the face of a Lord who loves them and will validate their value more than any movie, person, social movement, or attempt to justify something sinful ever can.

The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism

They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.

The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…

How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal

here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.

Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’€™s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save€ the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
