June 3, 2021 (Family Research Council) – There are lots of parents today who wouldn’t think twice about sitting their kids down in front of the Disney Channel or Cartoon Network. And that, conservatives warn, is exactly the problem. Like so many other moms and dads, they're expecting the same kind of harmless storylines they watched in the 70s and 80s. What their children are seeing is anything but.

Say goodbye to the regular plot lines of Blue’s Clues and Scooby-Doo – and hello to a 21st century lesson in transgenderism, sex, homosexuality, non-binaries, and drag queens. That’s the new reality of radical programming on some of America’s favorite shows – especially, parents are discovering, during Pride month. Loveable animals like Arthur and My Little Pony have been commandeered by the far-Left for lessons that would make most adult’s jaws drop.

In the latest example on Blue's Clues, real-life drag queen Nina West sings a Pride parade song to the tune of “The Ants Go Marching” – except the lyrics have been replaced with “LGBTQ buzzwords like ‘ace’ – which stands for ‘asexual’ – as well as ‘queer,’ ‘bi,’ ‘pan,’ ‘allies,’ and ‘kings and queens,’” the Blaze warns. Blue and friends watch their two-mom floats go by while rainbow and transgender flags dot the colorful landscape.

This is just the beginning of Nickelodeon’s full-blown assault on mainstream morality. SpongeBob Square Pants has already stepped into the LGBTQ world, so, according to TMZ, “it’s really not that much of a stretch for them to get Blue onboard, too.” The goal, the outlet says, is to take “proactive steps to teach kids about different family structures in a fun, catchy way that appeals to young children.” And unfortunately, these networks aren't the only ones.

Breitbart ticked off 13 shows that are blatantly pushing this indoctrination on children, including some surprising favorites like Adventure Time (Cartoon Network), DuckTales (Disney), My Little Pony (Discovery Family), Arthur (PBS), The Loud House (Nickelodeon), Clarence (Cartoon Network), She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Dreamworks), Andi Mack (Disney), Steven Universe (Cartoon Network), Star vs. the Forces of Evil (Disney XD), and Gravity Falls (Disney).

And yet, despite this complete activist takeover of children's programming, LGBT extremists still insist they have “a long way to go.” “But at least nowadays,” their Pride websites brag, “there’s so much amazing LGBTQ+ representation in animated children's shows, giving a whole new generation of young, queer kids the much-needed representation and visibility they need!”

Like so many other Netflix and PBS shows, producers seem dead set on turning wholesome, family-friendly stories into a weapon of indoctrination. And they’re doing it under the guise of children’s programming. In the case of longtime favorites like Disney and My Little Pony, beloved franchises are now being distorted to promote a radical 21st century LGBT agenda.

The Biden Administration has incredibly given permission to U.S. embassies to fly the Black Lives Matter (BLM) flag alongside the American flag for the rest of the year.

This order is an outrageous and insulting affront to American identity and sovereignty, and must be rescinded immediately!

Please SIGN this petition to demand that U.S. embassies around the world fly the American flag ONLY!

According to a leaked memo, quoted below and published by Human Events News on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken urged embassies to push Black Lives Matter messaging and authorized them to "hang BLM flags" "for calendar year 2021."

"As outlined below, Chiefs of Mission may decide to hang BLM flags, as appropriate and depending on local context. This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management (M) to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission."

"The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond. We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact."

Of course, eliminating racism is a positive thing, but NOT by promoting the Black Lives Matter organization or movement which have been linked to the following radical actions and ideas:

  • Violent protests and the general destabilization of our society
  • Defunding of our police departments
  • The overthrow of the nuclear family
  • Perpetual marxist revolution

Only a miniscule proportion of the American population supports the radical ideology and actions of the BLM organization and movement. In fact, polling shows that a strong majority of Americans believe that "All Lives Matter," rather than just the lives of just one race of Americans.

The Biden Administration's promotion of this Leftist symbolism and ideology is both dangerous and deliberately misleading.

And, it is the worst kind of virtue signaling, as the message being sent to the rest of the world is: "Get on board with the radical, marxist and revolutionary ideology of the BLM organization and movement if you want a favorable response from the United States government."

This kind of cultural imperialism and coercion is downright insulting to our allies and partners abroad.

But, it also demonstrates how the current U.S. administration is beholden to the radical leftist element of the Democratic Party -- which is downright insulting to most average Americans.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition demanding that the U.S. Department of State rescind permission to fly the BLM flag at U.S. embassies around the world.

Then, please CONTACT the Department of State by email or by telephone, to politely, but firmly, demand that only the U.S. flag, and not the BLM flag, be flown at U.S. diplomatic installations.

The State Department may be contacted by email at this webpage: https://register.state.gov/contactus/contactusform

The Office of the Secretary of State may be contacted at this telephone number: 202-647-4000

So what can parents do? First off, don’t assume that any form of secular entertainment is safe from this type of storyline. Watch these programs with your kids if you can, or check them out in advance. Click over to organizations like the Parents Television Council, MovieGuide, or One Million Moms for resources or reviews. But the most important piece of advice is this: don’t take anything for granted. If you’re a mom or dad who’s concerned about the messages Hollywood is sending your kids, don't assume that just because it's the Disney Channel or because it's called ABC Family or PBS, that the show is innocent or family-friendly. Especially in the month of June.
