Corporate America goes bonkers: Marvel, Barbie, Disney all push deranged left-wing agendas onto children and teens

(Natural News) Besides destroying America, one of the things that the liberals have become fairly good at is taking advantage of Hollywood and childhood icons in order to advance their radical social justice agenda. It is a very sneaky way of promoting their deranged values and principles, similar to how companies use product placement to casually advertise their brands in movies and television shows. Instead of saying “buy Coca-Cola” or “become a liberal progressive,” the strategy is to instead have the main actor casually sipping on a Coke in one of the scenes, or to have two parents in a children’s show just happen to be homosexual. This type of subtle yet consistent ideological indoctrination is doing a tremendous amount of damage to America’s young people, and forcing them to grow up in a world that is based more in fantasy than in reality.
Hulu’s new superhero series Runaways, for example, is jam packed with social justice principles and radical left wing values – because God forbid a television show exists today that doesn’t contain some sort of liberal propaganda.
Showrunner Stephanie Savage was ecstatic about the idea of having a superhero show rooted in progressive values when she pitched the idea to Marvel: “I loved all the humor, I love the strong female characters, I loved the great cliffhangers at the end of every issue, the diversity of the characters. To me it felt so contemporary and so, sort of, already of our world that we were just so hopeful that [Marvel] would be open to it.”
Runaways will feature the first ever on-screen lesbian relationship between two of the show’s main female characters. Additionally, the character Gert Yorkes is described as a “riot grrrl” who is ready, willing and able to “dismantle the patriarchy.” Gert is also critical of “organized religion,” which she considers to be more “oppressive to women” than any other institution. If, for some reason, this isn’t enough to convince you that Runaways is nothing more than a liberal propaganda series, in one of the episodes, Gert apparently criticizes her adopted sister for “reinforcing hegemonic masculinity while marginalizing women’s identity” after she does something as horrible and controversial as trying out for a dance team.
Are we absolutely sure that this show wasn’t produced by Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton?
As disturbing and upsetting as it is to see shows being developed with the intent of brainwashing our children, it really should come as no surprise that Marvel would want to adopt a show like Runaways. After all, Marvel is owned by Disney, and Disney has never exactly been shy when it comes to promoting progressivism to young children. (Related: There has been a huge increase in children who have been indoctrinated with gender identity propaganda.)
In October, the show Andi Mack on the Disney Channel introduced viewers to its first gay storyline. According to Breitbart News, the young male lead character named Cyrus struggles to come to terms with the fact that he is sexually attracted to a male friend while also having a brand new girlfriend by his side. As if that’s not bad enough, Cyrus is only 13 years old. It sure seems as though Disney is okay with living in a world where young boys experiment with and develop sexual attractions to other adolescent boys, with absolutely no sense of how morally wrong that is whatsoever.
Disney has been pushing the homosexual agenda for years. Back in 2012, the Disney Channel launched an ad campaign that featured a young filmmaker speaking out against bullying. Of course, the network couldn’t help but focus a bit on the boy’s “two moms” as well with its “Make Your Mark” segment. Anti-bullying campaigns are certainly necessary in many cases, but the fact that Disney chose to promote the filmmaker’s lesbian parents goes to show just how committed the network is to advancing the progressive agenda.
Even something as sweet and innocent as the famous childhood doll Barbie is not safe from the social justice plague that is engulfing American society. In an attempt to both increase sales and promote liberalism, the Barbie doll manufacturing company Mattel is coming out with a doll, whose t-shirt reads in rainbow-emblazoned letters, “Love Wins.” This, of course, is the phrase used often by liberals and LGBT activists to promote the idea of gay marriage, homosexuality and transgenderism. (Related: Transgenders increasingly want to revert back to their original gender after having surgery.)
The question that we must ask is simple: What’s next? Is Bugs Bunny one day going to come out as a homosexual? Are Tom and Jerry eventually going to announce that they have been a gay couple all these years? Is there any part of American society that won’t be affected by the left’s homosexual agenda, even though only 1.6 percent of American adults identify as gay or lesbian while 96.6 percent are heterosexual? How much crazier can things possibly get?
The ironic thing about all of this is that while the leftists like to call themselves “progressives” that are helping America transition into a more tolerant and accepting era, they really don’t stand for progress at all. Indoctrinating young children with the idea that homosexuality and transgenderism are entirely natural is not a sign that our country is moving forward; it’s a sign that our country is, at the very least, slowly regressing. To counter this indoctrination, parents have to step up and teach their children real values and conservative principles.
