There has been panic which I’ve explained before to those concerned about the amount of power corporations have. The worry is that corporations will force us to accept vaccine passports to move around the country, that they’ll push us out of amusement parks if we don’t get woke policies, and that they’ll regulate our lives by generally denying us fun and happiness. It is essentially the Chinese model that we are seeing play out in the opening days of the Biden administration. Companies like Disney and Coka Cola, who have global aims, have placed their bets that the way to those international markets is through the communism of China. That is essentially the bet of the NBA, an organization made up of socialist players to go global China style. So, they are ignoring American markets treating us like garbage because they are going for what they think is a bigger prize in the world of tomorrow under a one-world government ran by the United Nations and influenced by communism. That’s how we arrived here, but I have explained it a different way, and my bets are placed opposite of the international trend. Those who are betting against America are going to pay for it in a big way.
Now I love traditional Disney. I think Walt Disney is one of the great entrepreneurs of our American history. I have no problem sharing Disney with the rest of the world. If Disney is broadcasting American values, it’s a great thing. Disney the Man. Not Disney, the corporation that woke leftists and Democrat presidential hopefuls now run. I would offer that these new leaders of corporate Disney, Coke, and the NBA—among others—don’t know what they are doing and have over-leveraged their influence over the American population. For instance, Disney thinks people are so hungry for their Disney+ service, their amusement parks, and their many restaurants and hotels that they will put up with crazy, radical communist policies in trade for fun. I would offer that people reject those services in favor of freedom and that market pressures will shift away from those corporations to other options. Such as Facebook and Twitter assumed that they would have control over the flow of information, but instead, options are erupting everywhere. The Facebook model is now dying as we speak as well as Twitter. Their influence is waning due to their activism against President Trump and his 70 million voters. Disney is suffering the same fate; they are losing billions of dollars in their commitment to wokeness, and I don’t ever see them recovering. Their decision to leverage their entertainment assets against American traditions is costing them as they speak, and the brand damage is incalculable.
I have wanted to return to Disney World for a vacation, so I occasionally watch video vlogs of people who cover the parks in Orlando, and what they are reporting is embarrassing compared to my experiences in the past. Disney World as a vacation spot has been one of the best locations on earth for entertainment. Not only do they have a collection of the best rides that are anywhere, but they have great employees who carry the company message of happiness and enthusiasm for life. But this move by the company to go full woke, to empower all the radical leftwing causes, the Black Lives Matters types, the gun grabbers, the rainbow gays on Disney characters, the transgender policies have ruined that positive employee interaction. I didn’t help to shut down for Covid and never fully restaffing. With the theme parks at a much-reduced capacity, waiting times excessively high only to be greeted with more and more Covid restrictions, the brand of Disney has been whittled away during the election year of 2020, and their gamble will not be paying off. You can see it most in the many specialty shops that are closed and appear to be gone forever, the little chocolate shops and souvenir spots that are seldom ever open anymore because of the declined attendance.
This past week, Ron DeSantis in Florida removed all emergency Covid restrictions, so Disney cannot blame the government for its temperature-taking and mask mandates. That is a liberal policy from the management of Disney as a company that wants to see central government restriction to get the payoff of a culture shift from America to China, where they placed all their bets. And those bets are now in the multibillion dollars. That is why they are trying not to show panic, but they look to have lost their pre-2019 market share forever. The evidence was in the fan reaction to the Gina Carano firing from the Star Wars Mandalorian series because she came out on Twitter as a conservative. The way that Disney fired her showed they have no idea what is driving market forces these days, and when Star Wars fans rebelled by canceling their Disney+ memberships, the company had to attempt to fix it by hiring her back, or at least to let the fans know they were thinking about it. With Florida now without Covid restrictions, yet Disney insisting on keeping them going costing themselves even more billions by the month, there are many more Gina Carano-like concessions they will have to make in the future to attempt to regain market share. That might help. I might revisit the parks, but I’m not going to spend a lot of money there to see a bunch of closed restaurants, lines that are socially distanced, and having to wear a stupid mask in the hot Florida sun over a communist attempt at insurgency by the management of the Disney Company.
That has been my message from the beginning of this woke attempt by companies to steer us into political directions. Money rules, and they can’t cheat that vote. People ultimately have the power over their corporations, and the best way to make them honest again is by hitting them in the pocketbook. Don’t buy their crap and watch how fast they give up their communist dreams. They should have never listened to the China playbook. The market share was never going to come from the East, and stealing it from America was never going to work. It might have looked good on paper to people too stupid to ask the obvious questions. But now, the dollars and cents are telling the story quite well. It’s not just Disney either. They make an excellent example because their brand is so well known and significant. Watching them fall the way they have provides a glimpse into smaller corporations that are just as bad off but not obvious to the public. The NBA gained popularity because of Larry Bird and the great competition with Michael Jorden. People will be turned off by athletes taking up communist causes. The corporations themselves do not set public policy; they are created to fulfill a public need. And so long as they do that, they will make money. When they think they can steer that policy, they will fail every single time. The NBA has seriously damaged their brand, likely forever also. It took a long time to build and only a few years to destroy. Good luck in China, where they don’t have the money to support those types of endeavors, and they never will. So, fret not; you have a lot more control over this wokeness than you think. It’s already coming apart, so let it fall apart. There are plenty of other things in life to do. We don’t need companies that aren’t pro-American.
