State Department Proposes Using Disney’s “Frozen” to Push Global Warming Propaganda to Kids

A top State Department official told the Arctic Frontiers conference in Norway that he’s proposing using characters from Disney’s “Frozen” to teach children about climate change.
Adm. Robert Papp, the US special representative for the Arctic, believes he can make young children more aware of the disastrous effects of man-made global warming by enlisting the help of Disney and their popular “Frozen” characters. 
You can’t be in this business and not see Frozen, Papp said, adding that he has watched the movie at least 20 times thanks to his two young granddaughters. A staffer from his office came up with the idea for Disney to create public service announcements focused on the Arctic starring the movie’s main characters: Elsa, a princess with powers over ice and snow; her younger sister, Anna; a reindeer named Sven; and Olaf, a talking snowman who loves summer.

“I said, you’ve taught an entire generation about the Arctic,” Papp said, describing his exchange with the Disney executive. “Unfortunately, the Arctic that you’ve taught them about is a fantasy kingdom in Norway where everything is nice. What we really need to do is educate the American youth about the plight of the polar bear, about the thawing tundra, about Alaskan villages that run the risk of falling into the sea because of the lack of sea ice protecting their shores.”

You can always count on the government to want to take something innocent and popular and use it to push a political agenda. But this time, that agenda is being forced on young children.
As it turns out, the pitch didn’t go over too well with Disney executives.
