  • The Disney Channel Is No Longer Safe For Our Kids

    As a mom of three young kids, I’m careful about what they’re exposed to on television, and I screen the shows they watch to confirm they reflect our family values of respect and courteousness. That’s why my kids are banned from watching the Disney Channel. The Disney Channel and its spin-off, Disney XD, are no longer “safe spaces” for kids. The kid characters on Disney’s shows are often mouthy and disrespectful to parents and authority figures (who are usually scripted as muddle-headed and embarrassingly square). Even many of the strange animated characters make crass and nasty comments. Shockingly, both my...

    Disney Junior released an episode of a cartoon aimed at preschoolers that depicted two "married" lesbian moms. Doc McStuffins, a show about an aspiring doctor who "fixes" toys with help from friends, featured a family led by two "moms" in its August 5 episode "The Emergency Plan." Although Doc McStuffins has been praised by many cultural critics for its depiction of a young African-American female doctor, it's now under fire for its most recent episode pushing same-sex "marriage." Here are 12 facts about Doc McStuffins. The creator of the show, Chris Nee, is in a same-sex 'marriage.' Michelle Obama...

    As the White House braces for former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday, sources tell ABC News the relationship between President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has become so tense that Sessions at one point recently even suggested he could resign. (snip) Meanwhile, White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked today if the president still has confidence in his attorney general. He could not say. “I have not had that discussion with him,” Spicer said. “So you can’t say if he has confidence in his attorney general?” Spicer was asked. Spicer responded: “I said I have not...

    Even the most magical place on Earth isn't immune to President Donald Trump. Those familiar with Walt Disney World in Florida know that the park is home to an attraction called the Hall of Presidents. Inside, there are animatronic (read: robot) versions of every single president of the United States, ever. The problem? Ever since the Clinton administration, the sitting president's robotic stand-in has had a speaking role. According to Vice's Motherboard, Disney's Imagineers don't know how they can incorporate President Trump into what's supposed to be a celebration of American values with his "hateful speech, misogyny, racism, and xenophobia."...

    Dissent may be the highest form of patriotism (when the GOP has power, anyway) but circulating nasty drawings of political opponents has to be the lowest form of dissent. And that’s what the left’s giant temper tantrum has come down to.   According to LA Weekly, “illustrators from studios including Disney, Sony, Nickelodeon and DreamWorks have gotten together to collaborate on the picture book Not My President. A crowdfunding campaign is in progress, and proceeds will support the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and L.A. Justice Fund.” The drawings are all too predictable: Trump as Fascist, Trump as diaper-clad infant, Trump supporters as racists. This...
  • Will Disney Turn Princess Into LGBT Hero?(Disney for perverts? Boycott)

    Staff
    Disney’s Frozen owes its box office success to a witty script, a (minor) break from the usual formula of romantic resolution, and a song that no American parent will ever forgive them for writing. But it has also inspired feminists and LGBTers to claim the movie’s heroine – Princess Elsa – as one of their own: the first lesbian princess in Disney history. Oh yes, you can read all about it in the liberal rag of your choice. Since Elsa required no love interest, it therefore stands to reason that the entire movie is one big Gay Power extravaganza. And...
  • ESPN’s Wilbon: Influence..‘Religious Right’ in Footb' Preventing Players from Accepting Michael Sam

    National Review Online ^ | July 23, 2014 | Andrew Johnson
    The NFL hasn’t been sufficiently accepting of Michael Sam, who came out as the first openly gay professional football player earlier this year, due to the religious Right’s influence in NFL locker rooms, says one ESPN commentator. On Tuesday, Pardon the Interruption’s Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon were discussing former NFL coach Tony Dungy’s recent comments that media attention would have pushed him away from drafting Sam. Kornheiser said he was optimistic that NFL players would be personally tolerant of Sam, though. “I’m more skeptical,” Wilbon countered. “I think there is a component, a subculture of the religious Right, that...

    JULY 19, 2014 A Thor Subject The comics industry grapples with attracting women readers. By Jim Geraghty The surprises came in a trio: First, Marvel Comics announced that the character of Thor, based upon the Norse God of Thunder, would become a woman. The second surprise was the venue in which the switch was announced — ABC’s feminine-minded daytime talk show The View — but perhaps that was predictable, considering that Marvel and ABC Television are both owned by Disney. But the third, and biggest, surprise is that anyone thought this was a good idea. “This is not She-Thor,” senior...

    Happy Fathers Day, everyone. (I know it sucks to spend the day with civilians…) And on that note you should know that Disney and Warner Bros are sorting out the rights to Father Of The Bride 3 with Charles Shyer to write and direct (Nancy Meyers passed) and Steve Martin to return. (What else does he have going?) The twist in this threequel is that Little Matty is now 29 and gay and getting married to a Navy SEAL’s son. Father of the bride George is "thunderstruck and speechless" and has problems with the whole gay thing. So wife Nina...

    A pro-family group in Florida wants to know why Disney doesn't hold its homosexual pride event after hours – the same as an annual Christian music concert. Why does Disney continue to allow the annual observance of 'Gay Day' at the Magic Kingdom? Families are being warned to consider staying away from the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, especially Saturday, when Orlando's annual "Gay Days" includes a visit to the Disney theme park by thousands of homosexuals. David Caton of the Florida Family Association tells OneNewsNow that homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people will be in the park for "Gay Day."...

    Hillary Clinton has not experienced any sustained after-effects from the concussion that sidelined her from her work at the State Department in late 2012 and early 2013, the former secretary of state told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview in advance of the release of her new memoir, “Hard Choices.” “No lingering effects,” Clinton told Sawyer, when asked whether she had experienced any. “No,” Clinton affirmed, when asked whether she still notices effects of any kind. The first piece of the interview with Clinton will air tonight on ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer,” and the full interview...
  • ESPN Denounced NFL as 'Unworthy of Contemporary Society' If Sam Was Undrafted

    While Tuesday's Washington Post covered ESPN's elaborate planning to broadcast "a kiss that rocked the sports world" -- after openly gay Michael Sam was drafted, and they don't mean the later cake-shoving kiss that seemed a little scarier given Sam's size -- the debate over the kiss submerged the flagrant liberal editorializing that ESPN aired a few minutes before the Rams selected Sam with the 249th pick. ESPN reporter Chris Connelly (formerly with MTV) uncorked pre-emptive anger, that if Sam went undrafted, the verdict of "history" (read: liberals) "will be derisive laughter, aimed at a league thus deemed by many...

    When Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones tweeted "horrible" in regards to Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on ESPN after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday, it wasn't a moment the NFL, Sam, the Dolphins or anyone wanted. But make no mistake, it allowed the NFL an opportunity to send a strong message: If you have public and negative comments about Sam and his sexuality, you will be punished and shamed. Jones, a second-year strong safety who had 10 tackles in 16 games last year, tweeted "omg" right after ESPN showed Sam's reaction to being drafted. According to...

    Half of all Americans believe that gay men and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll in which a large majority also said businesses should not be able to deny serving gays for religious reasons. Fifty percent say the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection gives gays the right to marry, while 41 percent say it does not.

    Opponents of same-sex marriage are scrambling to find effective responses, in Congress and state legislatures, to a rash of court rulings that would force some of America's most conservative states to accept gay nuptials. Some gay-marriage foes are backing a bill recently introduced in both chambers of Congress that would leave states fully in charge of their marriage policies, though the measure stands little chance of passage. In the states, they are endorsing a multitude of bills — some intended to protect gay-marriage bans, others to assert a right, based on religious freedom, to have nothing to do with gay...

    Kamala Khan isn’t your average New Jersey teenager battling a cultural identity crisis. She has superpowers. And she’s here to smash the stereotype of young Muslim-American women.Marvel has a comic book superhero named Kamala Khan, a Muslim teen from New Jersey. This idea is refreshing. It’s important. It reminds me of the late ‘60s film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. That was a revolutionary story about interracial marriage in America at a time when it was taboo. Like that film, Kamala will shatter taboos, too. Ms. Marvel (Kamala’s alter ego) will open the eyes of a new generation of comic...

    President Barack Obama is not an overtly religious man. He and his family rarely attend church, and he almost never elaborates in public about his own relationship to his Christian faith. But away from the public eye, advisers say, the president has carefully nurtured a sense of spirituality that has served as a grounding mechanism during turbulent times, when the obstacles to governing a deeply divided nation seem nearly insurmountable. Every year on Aug. 4, the president's birthday, Obama convenes a group of pastors by phone to receive their prayers for him for the year to come. During the most...

    Fans of Disney/ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” were recently let in on Mulan’s “dirty little secret.” Mulan is a bisexual. Normally I would not have a problem with a bisexual character in a prime time show that was scheduled for later in the evening, but for starters this show airs on Sunday nights at 7PM Central, and it is touted as a family show. It is Disney after all and inspired by Disney characters. The Huffington Post reports gloats: New ground was broken this week when a member of Disney’s iconic Princess franchise was queered and it was revealed that...

    Wendy and Tom Montgomery are devout Mormons from California who pounded on doors in 2008 to support the passage of Proposition 8, the state referendum that overturned the ruling that allowed same-sex couples to marry in California, and is now before the U.S. Supreme Court. They did so not knowing that their now 14-year-old son, Jordan, was gay and would later contemplate suicide because of the church's steadfast belief that homosexuality is a sin that would cut him off from his family not only here on earth but in the afterlife. "One of core tenets we believe in as Mormons...
