A society in the collapse? Disney parks forced to change program for the disabled

Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California have made a significant change to their policy regarding disabled guests because of growing abuse by non-disabled park goers.

If you have ever attended a Disney park, you may be familiar with their procedure that allowed disabled guests and their families to bypass the line. But, as the New York Post reported in the spring, non-disabled attendees have begun hiring handicapped people to accompany them to Disney parks in order to cut the line as well.

And now Disney is taking action against the con artists. As The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday, “Because parents scammed the theme parks, now disabled children will lose out.”

“It seems as though we are surrounded and that we have lost our way,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I believe we're not surrounded, but I believe we have lost our way.”

The Wall Street Journal reports:

…this week the Walt Disney Co. announced a significant change to procedures at Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California. No longer will families with disabled children or parents be allowed to go to the front of long lines.

One of the reasons for the change, a Disney spokeswoman told the Orange County Register, was to curtail "abuse of this system" by healthy families pretending that some of its members are ill or disabled.

Glenn explained that because of security concerns, he is forced to go to the front of the line when he visits Disney parks. While he understands that Disney’s policy towards high profile guests is necessary to keep things running smoothly in park, it is a situation that makes him very uncomfortable. Hearing that Disney is now reneging a similar procedure it had for disabled guests because of scammers was, needless to say, infuriating.

“We actually have said we don't want to do this because I hate going in front. I hate cutting the line. I hate it. I want my kids to stand in line and everything. We've asked, but they're like, ‘Please, no’ because we usually go at the high times of the year if we go,” Glenn explained. “And it bothers me. It bothers me so much… People are standing in line and I hate it. Can you imagine doing it and saying, ‘Oh, I'm doing it because I've got a handicapped child’ when you don't have a handicapped child?”

It would be one thing to read various media reports about people abusing Disney’s policy, it’s a whole other thing to read that Disney actually feels the need to completely change a policy that adversely affects some of their most fragile customers.

“But here's the amazing thing – you sit here and you look at this, and I could imagine reading this article and saying, ‘Okay, wow, they caught these guys doing this? Isn't that bad,” Glenn said. “No, that's not what this article is. This is the Walt Disney Company having to change their policy to hurt sick children because too many people are doing this. That's crazy.”

“That's a sign of a society in collapse right there,” Stu said. “That's an amazing story, and you're right. The frequency is what makes it really dark. If this had happened once, it's a story, right?”

But the abuse didn’t just happen once. It happened enough that it required a significant procedural change.

“That's the thing that gets me now on stories is it's like the Common Core stories. If it was one person being shut down and taken off because they stood up against Common Core, to me, that's a story. But it's day after day after day, city after city after city,” Glenn explained. “It's a society completely in not decline but collapse. It is just coming as a full‑fledged collapse. If you can't say, ‘You know, hey, remember the Tinkerbell and the castle that makes all of our kids cry? And here's a terminally ill child that's being wheeled in because this is the child's last chance to experience some of the magic? Get out of my way! Why are they first?’ That's a society in full‑fledged collapse.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
