“Disney was once a reliable source of wholesome and innocent entertainment for children,” The Daily Wire said. “But controversy after controversy has roiled the network over the last several weeks … leaving parents fearful that the content their kids are consuming is brainwashing them at best and endangering them at worst.”
The Daily Wire has brought on Eric Branscum and Ethan Nicolle of “VeggieTales” and the Babylon Bee to lead the production of programming.
On Wednesday, The Daily Wire co-CEO Jeremy Boreing made the announcement public:
“Because of the great reporting of Chris Rufo,” he began, “we got to see leaked footage from inside Disney of high-up Disney employees saying things like, ‘We have a not-so-secret gay agenda’,” and “‘we’re adding in queerness wherever we can’.”
“Another executive within the company,” Boreing continued, “said, if anything we don’t have enough LGBTQIA representation in content made for very small children.”
“We’re going to build alternatives,” he said. “Americans have enormous economic might, they just don’t have any alternatives. The Daily Wire is building those alternatives.”
