Tone-deaf Disney heiress claims a majority of Americans cheer its war over parental rights bill

Disney heiress Abigail Disney unloaded in more than a dozen tweets on those who support Florida’s parental rights law, claiming that most Americans are against it.

The 62-year-old whose great uncle was Walt Disney took to Twitter in a rant about the Parental Rights in Education legislation signed into law by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, claiming it is “unsupported by a large majority of Americans.”

She raged against the “culture war nonsense” and claimed businesses have to take a stand in order to prevent those on the right, such as former President Donald Trump, from getting into power.

“Like all radical ideologues, the right wing has finally run amok and is coming to devour the hand that feeds it,” Disney, whose grandfather Roy O. Disney co-founded The Walt Disney Company with his brother Walt, tweeted.

“For my part I am delighted. It is the business world that has been, either by act or omission, feeding the opportunist right wing to distract us with culture war nonsense while they rifle through the till and empty everyone’s pockets,” she wrote following a tweet by Manhattan Institute senior fellow Christopher Rufo.

“This ‘anti-woke’ right wing nonsense is unsupported by a large majority of Americans. In fact most Americans are offended by it and wish it would just go away,” she added.

Last week, Rufo had shared leaked videos online which showed producers and executives at the Disney company discussing ways they would be introducing more LGBTQ characters and pushing their woke agenda in future projects. Evidently, it was his tweet declaring a “moral war against Disney” that triggered the hate-filled rebuke from the heiress.

She railed against what she sees as a small minority of Americans on the right with “deep pockets” who have now “come for American Businesses” which need to not take a “neutral” position in political activism.

Lacking any self-awareness considering the never-ending culture war being waged by the left, Disney claimed this minority constantly drums up new outrage in order to rile up their base. She called out businesses quietly sitting on the sidelines amid the battle, saying their “silence brought us Donald Trump.”

“Apparently the racism and the xenophobia and the misogyny weren’t deal breakers. Their silence, or at least willingness to compartmentalize when it came to politicians who were willing to fight for their outrageous and multi-decade campaign to stack the deck against the American People brought us this whole raft of Trump wanna-be’s now casting about for new and more insidious ways to tear the country apart,” Disney continued her diatribe.

“Until now have relied so heavily upon to look after their subsidies, their tax breaks, their flouting of law and regulation. Perhaps the right wing has finally bitten the hand that has been feeding it superfoods these last few decades,” she tweeted.

“This is a monster of corporate America’s creation. Until now they’ve managed to dodge the worst of it by feigning ‘neutrality’ –even when decent human beings were being actively harmed by right wing activism. The only thing that will work for business now if they want to emerge in one piece, is to stand tall for authenticity, generosity, joy and decency,” Disney added.

“These things are kryptonite for the right wing agenda,” Disney added. “So the cure for this isn’t hard. And it also just so happens to be the heart and soul of the Disney brand.”

In fact, many employees of the entertainment colossus are not in agreement. Jose Castillo, a Florida-based Walt Disney Company employee who’s running for Congress has pushed back, saying that the “silent majority” of his fellow Disney employees support the Parental Rights in Education bill.

Castillo also warned last week that the company’s “leftward lurch” may ultimately cost its bottom line and could be something it “will soon regret.”

But Abigail Disney pressed on in her Twitter lecture.

“If only leadership will check in with first principles,” she wrote as she brought her biased screed to an end with a final shot at Rufo and conservatives.

“Yeah guys like Rufo can try, but Disney is so much bigger, means so much more to the American people than that little punk can ever hope to mean,” she tweeted.

Rufo, it seems, was unruffled by Disney’s hot air.

“LMAO: The Disney heiress, who inherited $100+ million and cosplays as a ‘class traitor,’ is coming after me now. The most privileged people on the planet pretend to be avatars of the oppressed and they are absolutely pathetic,” he tweeted.

“P.S. I hope you read this whole thread, @abigaildisney, and have a long talk with your therapist about it,” Rufo added. “Perhaps I could help you with a personal breakthrough. You might even thank me later.”
