For more years than I can count, the Disney name stood for wholesome family values and since their biggest consumers are little kids, that has been a good thing. But now, the politically correct hedonists who run the company have set out to destroy Walt’s legacy. In the newest version of Beauty and the beast, Disney has injected the first ever gay scene in a Disney movie.
Walter Elias Disney loved kids and insisted all of the ones working for him should refer to him as Uncle Walt. He jealously guarded the Disney name and refused to allow anything that would cheapen it or cast dirt on it. Parents knew that if it had the Disney name on it, they could trust it to be entertaining and safe for their children. That trust is now dead.
Who can’t remember huddling around the television set every Sunday night to watch Uncle Walt and the short Disney movie of the week. My personal favorite was when Uncle Walt gave a tour of Disneyland. I grew up poor and the chances of making it to Palisades Park with the coupons from the comics or a Disneyland trip were impossibility to me.
Well, I did make it to Palisades park and in fact lived there for two years but the park had been long gone by then. But I was able to take my son there when he was just about 5 or 6 and I was able to live my dream through his wide eyes and laughter. To me, it’s like having a close friend pass away.
The team have now revealed one character, LeFou, will experience Disney’s first ever “gay moment” on screen, as he struggles with his feelings for ultra-macho leading man Gaston.
In an interview with Attitude magazine, director Bill Condon said: “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston.
“He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings.
“And Josh [Gad, who plays LeFou] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it.
Join me in a moment of silence to honor the death of Disney.
