Disney Fans Petition for a Silent Donald Trump figure in Hall of Presidents attraction
Inside the Magic.com ^

Posted on 01/31/2017 7:13:28 AM PST by TigerClaws

It’s not unusual for Disney fans to protest when a change comes to Disney Parks, but typically the subject for protest is an attraction closing or a character’s costume change–things that could be considered #DisneyWorldProblems. However, five days ago a petition was created expressing a sentiment seen in protests outside Main Street, U.S.A.

Just this past week, Matthew Rogers of Brooklyn, NY began a petition on change.org that asks The Walt Disney Company to make the Donald Trump figure, destined for the Magic Kingdom’s Hall of Presidents, a silent one. The request is unusual because it is customary for the incumbent President to give a speech to the audience along with Abraham Lincoln. This petition suggests that a change from tradition is in order. The very strongly-worded petition reads:

This is a petition to stop the inevitable Donald Trump animatronic figure from speaking, let alone giving a speech similar to the one given by Barack Obama and past incumbent Presidents….[Donald Trump] is perhaps best known for how he uses his words sometimes carelessly, yet oftentimes with the specific intent of degrading, insulting and demeaning not only those who do not agree with him on any given topic, but entire groups of people including Mexicans, Muslims, women and the disabled….We ask that Walt Disney World take a stand against divisive and hurtful rhetoric….

The petition had gathered approximately 750 signatures since being posted four days ago, but after last night’s events in which President Trump quickly fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates for speaking out against his Muslim ban and removing the Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for reasons unknown, the petition has now reached over 2,000 signatures

Perhaps they could hand out pink ear muffs to the snowflakes instead.

Just when you think that people couldn’t get any more petty than they are now, something like this comes along.

No way. I had to suffer through Obama’s speech when I took the family to the Magic Kingdom back in 2013. Now it’s the snowflakes’ turn to suffer.

Perhaps a counter-petition to beat them at their own game?

Unfortunately, people of this ilk actually think they are living a worthwhile life. When one has such petty concerns, it is proof that he is needlessly using oxygen.

Does the Obama one use the four lettered language and vile insults he spouts in his Grammy winning book on tape?

Commies can go screw themselves.

I've learned that the Left has an inexhaustible supply of pettiness.

It's their "gift."

When they silence the Obama statue, then we’ll talk about it. We had to listen to him for 8 years, and we were quiet about it.

OMG! How STUPID can people be??? The figure wouldn't be speaking on its own; it has words put into its mouth. So, what IS the problem? Geeez! Talk about dumb!

“It really doesn’t matter which party controls government. What matters is if government is controlled by the people.”
