Go woke, go broke.
A very simple, and accurate, four-syllable assessment on the state of ultra-liberal, woke companies today, yet one that apparently none of the organizations apparently seem to understand until it happens to them.
The latest casualty of this axiom appears to be none other than Disney, which is hardly experiencing the illustrious boost in typical ticket sales that it has long since enjoyed over the summer.
As reported by the New York Post, the standard wait times at rides for the various Disney theme parks, which are usually a strong indicator of overall park attendance, have declined dramatically this particular summer.
“Walt Disney World and Disneyland have seen significantly shorter wait times to get on rides — a sign that visitors are staying away this summer as the Mouse House struggles to attract guests apparently put off by the exorbitant ticket prices, according to a report …
In 2019, the average wait time to board a ride in the Magic Kingdom was 47 minutes. The pandemic-hit 2022 saw the wait time shrink to 31 minutes. So far this year, the average wait time is 27 minutes. Wait times for rides at EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom follow the same trajectory, according to Touring Plans,” the New York Post reported.
Of course, a number of excuses were offered for the poor park attendance during what should be a highly busy summer, including the fact that Florida apparently has “sweltering summers.”
Given that Sunshine State has always experienced “sweltering summers,” this excuse is rather lame.
A more believable excuse is the insanely high-ticket price point, but tickets to the theme parks have never been cheap either.
One thing is for certain: Disney’s militantly leftist policies certainly don’t help, especially if they end up alienating business from wealthier, conservative families from abroad.
They certainly haven’t helped compel more conservative Americans to trust in its parks or their facilities.
Needless to say, these declining attendance numbers spell out one rather obvious observation: If businesses are determined to alienate at least 50 percent of the nation, if not more, especially with anti-children protection policies, is it really any surprise that their overall revenues begin to decline?
If anything, the declining corporate revenues due multiple woke antics, from Bud Light portraying men as women to Disney openly fighting DeSantis, illustrate that conservative values are alive and well in the United States, in spite of the mass media’s best efforts to destroy them entirely.
After all, if most Americans were simply indifferent to the ongoing societal rot spearheaded by “progressives,” then these businesses should not be suffering as tremendously as they are now.
However, it is clear that going woke does indeed lead to going broke, with virtually all deliberately leftist businesses set for multiple Bud Light moments until they deign to wake up.
Alas, Disney would apparently rather blame the “sweltering heat” that has always been in Florida for abysmal ticket sales, rather than the fact it has positioned itself clearly in favor of the indoctrination and grooming of children in public school classrooms.
Given the corporation’s vehement opposition to any form of “parental rights” espoused by DeSantis.
As Disney is in the business of providing a magical experience to families, this position is quite disturbing, to say the least.
