"I spent thirty-three years in the Marines, most of my time being a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism." -- General Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant,1935

A few days after the mostly peaceful protest against vote fraud at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, Disney CEO Bob Iger held an all-hands meeting announcing it was time for Disney to start “taking a stand” on political issues.

When Netflix launched its ad-supported tier in November 2022, it tried to tempt viewers in with discounted rates, hoping to win new consumers and sell their eyeballs to ad-slingers. But Amazon Prime, well, it went a different route.

The return of Jon Stewart to "The Daily Show" on Monday night, after a long hiatus, sparked a wave of discontent among liberal journalists and commentators.

The cause of their ire was Stewart's humor directed at President Biden's age and perceived equivocation with former President Trump.

Stewart's comeback to the show, which he will host every Monday night until the 2024 election, was announced last month. This news was met with enthusiasm by many progressives, who fondly remember his 16-year tenure on the show from 1999 to 2015.

Disney is actually doubling down on the wokeness, sticking to its guns with the “DEI hiring strategy” that prioritizes skin color, gender identity, and sexual orientation over actual talent or expertise. It’s like the US has swapped the pursuit of excellence for a culture of “charity,” and Disney’s leading the charge. Seven box office duds aren’t enough; Disney is eyeing an eighth. And with its latest twist on “Pirates of the Caribbean,” brace yourself for some legendary disappointment.

Disney apparently hasn’t learned anything about going after people who disagree with its woke ideology. The once admired entertainment empire has crumbled into a cascade of liberal ideas that undermine American culture.

Employees at Disneyland were subjected to another dose of woke ideology recently. They couldn’t even have a little peace of mind when taking a break from their jobs. Propaganda posters were promoted in employee spaces.

Actor John Cusack fired back after the non-profit watchdog group StopAntisemitism branded him the “Antisemite of the Week” in an X post on Sunday.

“Wow – a list full of lies,” the “Say Anything” star replied on the thread.

StopAntisemitism’s post contained a picture of Cusack accompanied by the “Antisemite of the Week” label.
