I’ve always been fascinated with the World War II era. And I’m especially a fan of World War II movies – from “The Great Escape” to “Saving Private Ryan.”
I was especially intrigued to learn that Disney had produced a series documenting the story of Miep Gies, the woman who hid the family of Anne Frank in Amsterdam.
Unfortunately, about ten minutes into the first episode of “A Small Light” – my intrigued was replaced with disgust.
Disney had made one of Miep’s brothers gay.
The show’s writers and creator admitted to RadioTimes.com that they took some liberties with the family’s sexuality.
“We know that Miep had five foster brothers – statistically probably one of them was gay. But deciding to make Cass gay allowed us into the world of the Café ‘t Manje and the fact that the queer community in the Netherlands was very active in the Dutch resistance,” writer Tony Phelan confessed.
There’s just one glaring issue with his argument. Miep’s brother was not gay.
“So bringing that story into our story felt like the right choice to do. So we took some liberties but hopefully they’re liberties in the pursuit of a bigger desire to immerse the audience in the many different facets of this world,” he added.
It’s bad enough that Disney is grooming children to embrace the LGBT agenda – but now they are rewriting history. Perhaps someone should inform Disney that there’s nothing wrong with being born heterosexual.
