(PresidentialHill.com)- An old joke that goes back at least to Dana Carvey’s “Church Lady” character on “Saturday Night Live” is that “Santa” rearranged spells “Satan.” The revelation might allegedly be funny when one is 10 years old, but when Disney does it in 2022, some are no longer convinced that it is a joke, according to The Western Journal.
“The Santa Clauses” is a six-episode comedy that came out on Disney+, the company’s popular streaming service that features a host of shows and movies, such as The Mandalorian and The Avengers.
The show is a continuation of Tim Allen’s classic “Santa Clause” films, where he searches for a replacement as he realizes he is getting old. While the older films featured some “potty humor” nothing is reportedly out of the ordinary in the newer episodes, except for the fact that one scene sports an apparent “We Love You, Satan,” misspelling.
The bit was an attempt at being humorous, but many on Twitter, including country singer John Rich, mixed-martial arts fighter Jake Shields, and conservative strategist Chuck Callesto did not think so.
One user commented that it was obviously a misspelling, but that the timing of the joke during the political controversy surrounding Disney’s recent “woke” tirades is suspicious. Another user wrote that even if the scene was an attempt at a joke, “it’s desensitizing the youth to something that is very real and very dangerous.”
Disney was recently engaged in a political battle with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over his Parental Rights in Education Act that prohibits sex from being talked about to children. Disney, along with other leftists, dubbed the bill, “Don’t Say Gay,” referring to it as an attack on the LGBTQ+ community.
Shortly after the company made its position on the bill clear, a video surfaced courtesy of journalist Christopher Rufo.
The clip showed one executive producer bragging about pushing her “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” into kids’ programming, while another, who said that she was “the mother [of] one transgender child and one pansexual child,” said that she will work to include “many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories.”
