The Left’s False Disney v. Chick-fil-A Comparison

The Left’s False Disney v. Chick-fil-A Comparison

As Florida lawmakers threatened to revoke Disney’s (1.00) special governance permissions, liberal activists began falsely comparing the company to a more conservative corporation – Chick-fil-A (1.83). According to these activists, Florida revoking Disney’s government-granted special permissions is the same as city bans which specifically target Chick-fil-A.

That comparison is entirely inaccurate. Here’s why:

  1. The backlash against Disney is because the company openly engaged in corporate lobbying. Attacks on Chick-fil-A are based upon reactions to the company’s donations to charities – some of which are explicitly socially conservative – and the owners’ private donations.
  2. Taking away a special benefit from Disney makes business law more equal and fair in Florida. Targeting Chick-fil-A with a law designed to prevent it from opening in a city makes business law less equal and less fair in that city.
  3. Disney lied about the Florida parental rights law. Chick-fil-A just serves customers; its owners have personal opinions about various laws, cultural norms, and religious beliefs. Liberals are conflating these very different things.

The Left and the media – often one and the same – act like people with socially conservative viewpoints are targeting helpless victims in society by giving parents the right to teach their children about sex and sexuality. But schools should not be teaching anything to pre-pubescent kids on that topic, and even then should only teach about sex-related matters in classes such as biology or health. Teaching little children that their bodies are “wrong” is child abuse, and that’s made even worse when schools push such policies without parental permission. 

Chick-fil-A and Disney have one thing in common: They’re both major corporations. Other than that, the Left couldn’t have made a more wrong comparison. Chick-fil-A is far from perfect on the 2ndVote scale, but they’re not attacking parental rights to raise children the best they know how. Let’s continue to let Disney know that we want entertainment, not child grooming. Contact one of Disney’s executives or board members today by using this link!
