Orlando, FL — The company that has always taken the “woke” approach to their business is now being attacked by their own. At the end of last week, Disney opened its theme parks in Florida for the first time in months. Lovers of the parks were thrilled to be able to enjoy them again, while the woke turned on one of their own.
The opening came as Florida experienced some of the highest new coronavirus cases ever reported. Sunday was a record-breaking day for cases, and the parks did not take this lightly. They opened with limited capacity, increased cleaning measures, mask requirements, and many other steps to protect guests.
Disney launched a video to say “welcome home” to everyone who was returning to the parks. Soon after, parody videos telling everyone it was not safe to go to the parks were made of the video. You can see many of them in this article at Slate.
Pictures were shared across websites and social media critical of Disney for their line management outside the parks. As you read some articles, it would make you think that Disney was not managing the situation at all. It was helping the left push their agenda.
Photos shared from inside the parks show a different story, as social distancing and masks were inforced. As the woke left pushed the narrative that you would get sick and die from visiting Disney, it’s apparent that they are taking as many precautions as possible to prevent it.
That simply isn’t enough for the woke left, however. Disney realized that they could not stay closed forever. They have thousands of cast members who have been out of work for months. This type of closure and shut down is exactly what the left wants.
They want you to live in fear of the coronavirus. They want you to believe this is the end of the world so that you will listen to their every demand and desire. They continue to attack rights and try to eliminate freedoms through the pandemic. It’s just hard to choose which story they want you to believe.
On the one hand, they tell you that wearing a mask and social distancing will prevent the spread. That does not seem to be the case if it comes to providing recreation and enjoyment for you and your family, however. Because if you wear a mask and distance at Disney, it’s going to be the end of the world.
It’s a great example of how the woke left is willing to attack one of their own. If you remember, Disney just recently signed Colin Kaepernick to a deal that pandered to the Black Lives Matter movement. That’s just not enough, “wokeness.”
For the left, Disney should have shut down indefinitely. They should have kept those cast members out of work. They should have refused to allow anyone to enjoy fun or excitement. According to these woke left-wing nutjobs, you should just stay at home.
While I am not a huge fan of all the things Disney has supported and done, kudos to the organization for opening and continuing with their plans amid the pandemic, while the left would like everyone to be government dependent sitting at home, Disney realizes that they are a business and need to make money to survive. That means opening their business safely and putting people back to work.
