Petition to The Walt Disney Company

FIRE ABC Entertainment chief Channing Dungey

As a Disney shareholder, and concerned Americans, we feel the management team and board of directors have lost their minds and gone into politics instead of business. The hiring of an incompetent head of entertainment for ABC just because of her gender and ethnicity instead of a competent, entertainment and business oriented PERSON, just for a political statement has de facto placed the captain of the Titanic in charge of yet another ship... The grossly lagging network with its array of substandard and awful values in screening murder, crime, and horror has gone directly against the wishes of the American public, and is steering them into corporately dangerous waters.   The canceling of a singularly  REDEEMING television show from their roster has proved the gross incompetence of the entire board of directors and the governance team of Walt Disney Corp, which the shareholders and the viewers of ABC Television ask them to step down and for their immediate termination of services to the Walt Disney Company, to be replaced by industry experienced people who have historically understood Walt Disney, the theme park business, and American television, and have a proper respect for America and its history and its flag.   We wish Last Man Standing to be immediately reinstated as a show on ABC's roster, and other like American friendly situation comedy shows to be added to their roster, and a distinct curbing of violent, horror oriented, and sub American standard Christian value programming to be brought to play immediately. This would be well in keeping with the historically wholesome programming of ABC, for such historic shows as Happy Days, Eight is Enough, Castle, Maverick and Family Feud with Steve Harvey, Batman TV, and the Dick Cavett Show. Such clean family fun, and thought provoking discussions, are of mutual benefit to all of us.   Also, as an American of European descent, I feel discriminated against in ABC constantly making my ethnicity the bad guys, the stupid guys, the people in the commercials who need all the help and advice... from any and all other ethnicities of people. After all, The United States of America is directly descended from Great Britain, Spain and France, and the Native Americans, for a history of 500 years.   As an American, I regret  the sins of the days of slavery, but they were not my sins. I was not alive in the days of slavery, and I have nothing to do with African Americans being enslaved by capitalistic historic forces of evil. Two wrongs do not make a right. Simply because America committed wrongs in our ancient history, does not mean that now everybody must pay to the multi hundred year descendants of those people by socioeconomic suicide.      To throw our culture into a slaughterhouse blender just because we are trying to be politically correct is a bigger sin than those of the forefathers. I am very proud of the Native American history, the Spanish history, the French help which allowed us to conquer our mother land, and the British people, who were the models for our constitution and strong sense of independence.   To come against our 500 year history as The Disney Company has, is no less than a form of traitorism, terror, and conspiracy against our historic values, the American way, and the pillars that have brought us to where we are. We demand, as a group, that Disney as a corporation come to their immediate corporate senses, and stop making war on America, its people, and the American way. Channing Dungey must be terminated immediately. Last Man Standing must be renewed with an open ended contract. The governance board of Disney must apologize as an entity to America and its people, and pledge allegiance to its people, and their country.   This is a start. We have only just begun to speak. When America speaks, things happen. Corporations are responsible to the axiom that making money alone is not a good enough reason to pursue any course of action.   Good night, and God bless America.
