Pence: Disney’s ‘Mulan’ was propaganda designed to lure women into military combat roles

Published

on

While working as a talk radio host in Indiana, Mike Pence railed against “mischievous liberal” Disney film Mulan in an op-ed in which he asserted that the film was attempting to influence the debate on women serving in the military.

The op-ed, which was uncovered by BuzzFeed News, not only discounts the animated character’s abilities but sexualizes and diminishes her based on her appearance.

“Despite her delicate features and voice, Disney expects us to believe that Mulan’s ingenuity and courage were enough to carry her to military success on an equal basis with her cloddish cohorts,” Pence pens. “Obviously, this is Walt Disney’s attempt to add childhood expectation to the cultural debate over the role of women in the military.”

“I suspect that some mischievous liberal at Disney assumes that Mulan’s story will cause a quiet change in the next generation’s attitude about women in combat and they just might be right,” he continued. “(Just think about how often we think of Bambi every time the subject of deer hunting comes into the mainstream media debate.)”

He believes that Mulan’s romance with a higher ranking officer was a perfect example of why women should not be allowed to serve in the U.S. armed forces.

“It is instructive that even in the Disney film, young Ms. Mulan falls in love with her superior officer! Me thinks the politically correct Disney types completely missed the irony of this part of the story,” Pence writes. “They likely added it because it added realism with which the viewer could identify with the characters. You see, now stay with me on this, many young men find many young women to be attractive sexually. Many young women find many young men to be attractive sexually. Put them together, in close quarters, for long periods of time, and things will get interesting. Just like they eventually did for young Mulan. Moral of story: women in military, bad idea.”

Watch below as Mulan sings about her fears of bringing dishonor on her family by being herself:
