Disney Tops Long List Of Woke Failures With Upcoming Release Of Gay Star Wars Show

Original Article By “Tyler Durden” At ZeroHedge.com:

A key element of understanding the smooth-brained antics of the woke left is that they are incapable of doing anything “creative” without sexualizing it and politicizing it.  Their collective identity revolves around who they lust after, how to virtue signal to the herd and who is supposedly the most oppressed.  Remove these things from their daily lives and there’s not much left to look at.  They could disappear tomorrow along with all of their media products and the world wouldn’t miss them in the slightest.

When a company chooses to pander to this small margin of the population there’s very little profit to be made.  A few years ago ESG lending was the big motivator for corporations to promote far-left ideology – With every progressive product, progressive commercial and progressive employment policy those businesses added to their overall ESG score.

Case in point – The numerous failures of Disney.

Japan’s Collapse Imminent: Prime Minister Calls On BlackRock To “Invest In Japan”

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida might be opening up the country to ESG policies and further politicization or censorship as he called on BlackRock and others to invest in Japan.

BlackRock gives every company an ESG score, or an Environmental, Social, and Governance score.

“Netflix Effect” Is Back As Studios License Old Shows To Competitors Again

Some of Netflix’s competitors are reversing a streaming war tactic by licensing their old TV shows and movies to the streamer—boosting its programming offerings but also potentially squeezing its profit margins, analysts say.

Netflix relied heavily on programming that it licensed from other companies when it launched its streaming service in 2007. But after Walt Disney, NBCUniversal, Paramount and the then-Time Warner launched their own streaming services, they pulled many of their shows from Netflix to avoid feeding a company that had grown into an arch-competitor.

With legacy media groups under pressure to produce streaming profits, however, licensing revenue is looking attractive again—even if it comes from Netflix. This summer, Warner Bros Discovery’s HBO network began licensing a handful of older shows to Netflix, including Insecure, Six Feet Under, Ballers, and Band of Brothers.
