In recent posts, I have managed to stray off into the political circus of 2018’s society. But today, I wanted to take a step back, and explain my beliefs behind The Walt Disney World as a place, and as a Company, part from a lifelong fan, and part from a former Cast Member.
To me, from a lifelong fan’s perspective, “Disney” will always be synonymous with The Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida. I know full well that Disneyland existed first, and that The Walt Disney Company owns many different businesses in many different genres, including but not limited to, ESPN and ABC, and ownership or close collaboration with companies such as Dreamworks. As a whole, The Walt Disney Company is a massive company. However, as I stated above, to me as a longtime fan, Disney is, well, The Walt Disney Resort in Orlando Florida. So, for the sake of this post, that is what I will discuss and remain focused on.
Back during the 2016 election cycle, Hillary Clinton infamously declared half of America as a “basket of deplorables” declaring that they were racists, xenophobes and homophobes. There has been much written and spoken by opinion-based (rather than fact based) television CNN talk show hosts Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper and MSNBC non-fact talk show hosts Mika and Joe, Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes, to name a few, declaring that white men are the “biggest terror threat” in America. And of course, only conservative white men – I am guessing that is how his husband Anderson Cooper gets a free pass.
Despite the propaganda talk show hosts claims, are conservatives actually intolerant, hateful people – especially conservative white men? Not quite. Let us take a look back through recent years, and the occurrences of hateful and intolerant rhetoric, and where in which they came from.
Megan Markle’s sister, Samantha Markle, is once again attempting, probably in vain, to steal the spotlight away from Megan Markle for her own attempt at celebrity. According to numerous news outlets, including this article, Samantha Markle is now claiming that Megan Markle and Prince Harry’s Christmas card is “rude.”
In a series of Twitter posts after Megan Markle and Prince Harry had their Christmas “card” released, Samantha Markle accused the couple of turning their backs to the world. Yes, that is why Samantha Markle is triggered over her sister Megan Markle and her husband Prince Harry’s Christmas [photo] Card. Because the picture used was a picture of them viewing fireworks during their wedding reception ceremony.
Newly “elected” Congress representative Ilhan Omar, recently posted the following on liberal social media platform Twitter:
“Kirstjen Nielsen went to a prep school where tuition costs more than what a family of 4 at the poverty line makes in a year. I’m sure she can’t imagine what she would do if she had a child whose only fate was to live a life of desperate poverty, starve or be murdered by a gang.”
Kirstjen Nielsen went to a prep school where tuition costs more than what a family of 4 at the poverty line makes in a year.
I’m sure she can’t imagine what she would do if she had a child whose only fate was to live a life of desperate poverty, starve or be murdered by a gang.
I’ve decided to take this in two separate statements, and show the sheer hypocrisy of both statements that Ilhan Omar stated, matter-of-factly I might ad.
First, we have the statement that “Kirsjen Nielson went to a prep school where tuition costs more than what a family of 4 at the poverty line makes in a year.” This raises numerous red flags for Ilhan Omar. Lets look at these red flags, and the hypocrisy that they represent.
First, Ms. Nielson is the sixth, and current, Department of Homeland Security Secretary. Ilhan Omar seemingly is referring to Ms. Nielson’s attending the Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa Florida. In all likelihood, Omar is critical not because she attended a prep school, but that she attended one that was Catholic.
But, because these outlets, and political rival Ms. Clinton claims it, does it make the claim true?
According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary (still an authoritative entity for spelling and definitions of the English language), Xenophobia is: “fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign”
We have been unable to locate a specific point in time that President Trump or his supporters earned this derogatory remark, however, it appears that Ms. Clinton may have been referring to President Trump’s opinion of building a wall to stop illegal immigration. However, it seems more people support a wall to prevent illegal immigration than some media outlets allow you to believe.
