Several Country Bans ‘Thor’ And ‘Lightyear’ Over LGBTQ Themes, Liberals Remain Silent
Get ready. Liberals are about to have a fit and start protesting like crazy!
Wait a minute…no, I was mistaken. That’s not going to happen. False alarm.
As Hollywood gradually becomes more woke, other countries aren’t putting up with it. Recently, authorities in Malaysia have announced that they will be banning movies that contain LGBTQ themes. That would include the recent films, “Thor: Love and Thunder” as well as Pixar’s “Lightyear” movie.
According to the Daily Wire,
Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Zahidi Zainul Abidin noted that both films had initially been submitted — by parent company Disney — to the nation’s Film Censorship Board (LPF). The LPF had reportedly asked for several cuts, presumably altering or removing scenes such as the same-sex kiss in “Lightyear,” but Disney had declined to accommodate their requests.
“Recently there was a film that did not pass censorship, that is the new ‘Thor’ film,” Abidin explained. “[The movie] touched on LGBT but we see right now there are many films with LGBT elements that slip past the censorship.”
Malaysia, he confirmed, has committed to limiting public access to gay culture whenever possible — and lamented the fact that, in order to bypass censors, the LGBTQ content in film and streaming content had become more subtle over time. “I am frustrated because the outside world was the one promoting LGBT,” he said, adding that the government was keeping a close eye on streaming content and social media and “would take severe action against individuals found promoting such elements.”
Where are the liberals at? Are they going to condemn these countries? I know if one of our Republican states did something like this they would be up in arms and protesting. Liberal governors would be banning travel to these states. Are they doing the same thing for the UAE? How about Saudi Arabia? Are we going to quit doing business with them? Nope. Nobody is going to say a word on the left.
What does that say about America when Muslim countries are exercising greater morality in this regard? And if it’s so oppressive, then the liberals should do something about it, but they won’t because it’s a catch-22 situation. They can’t speak badly about Muslims because they’re a “minority” in the U.S. At the same time, they can’t applaud them for the decision. They’re screwed either way.
