Disney's wokeism, its agenda for pursuing leftist social and sexual ideologies, already is known to Americans since it advocated for explicit sex lessons for children in Florida.
That raised the ire of Gov. Ron DeSantis, who worked with the legislature to withdraw a number of privileges that company had been granted over the years.
But now a whistleblower from inside the company has charged that the situation is worse than previously known, with workers required to keep "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion" diaries on which to base promotions or raises, and the outright "persecution" of conservative workers.
It is the BoundingIntoComics site that reported on the video testimony.
The report explains the whistleblower provided documents to YouTuber WDW Pro, who explained, "It is now our understanding that at Disney since the summer of 2020 many employees of the company have been required to maintain their various virtuous actions within diversity, equity, and inclusion. And that that diary of their ‘good deeds’ was part of maintaining their job security, but not only that, but in fact it was also tied to their job compensation if you can believe it."
He said if workers went "afoul" of Latondra Newton, the former diversity officer, they might not get bonuses.
The YouTuber also said the whistleblower confirmed, "If you espoused, starting in the summer of 2020 and moving forward until today, if you espouse political beliefs in the workplace, or outside the workplace, or on social media and those political or sociocultural beliefs did not align with very far left views than you could expect to be sent to HR to have some serious conversations and discussions."
The reporting suggested the company "seems to have eliminated the vast majority of their conservative employees and have turned the company into a monolithic kind of state where everyone there is either far to the left on the spectrum or they are a moderate or conservative in hiding."
Some workers, the reporting said, found it was a "nightmare," and said, "that they had never worked at any company like this that had them do these things and tied it into their pay."
The YouTuber, while citing the whistleblower, also revealed a document from Disney Ad Sales that "does indeed show that one of the MBOs (Management by Objectives) is 'Champion Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.'"
The list of requirements for employees includes participating in trainings, contributing to an inclusive "team environment," support "underrepresented talent," discussing "inclusion" and more.
The report added, "As for the claim about the company persecuting conservatives or those who disagree with very far left views there were not any documents provided. However, there is public testimony from Gina Carano and how the company persecuted her before eventually firing her."
She had explained to the Daily Wire, "I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before."
