If rampant crime won’t get you, the rats will. That’s what residents of New York City face as rodent “sightings” are up an insane 70% from two years ago. According to FOX 5, more than 21,500 sightings were reported to the Big Apple’s 3-1-1 service request line between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30.

That’s 18,601 more calls about rats than last year.

In April alone, people called in some 7,400 rat sightings.

WNBC reports the Department of Sanitation asked residents to put trash bags on curbs later, with exceptions for refuse in cans or bin in July.

The station said that the City Council is expected to vote on a rat action plan this month.

In July, the Department of Sanitation asked residents to put trash bags on curbs later, with exceptions for refuse in cans or bins, according to WNBC.

In August, Mayor Eric Adams announced a new plan to demolish abandoned dining sheds.

“These deserted dining sheds have become eyesores for neighbors and havens for rats, and we are going to tear them down, ” he said. “And, with this initiative, we are also taking the essential step toward a permanent Open Restaurants program that all New Yorkers can be proud of every day. I want to say it loud and clear: Outdoor dining is here to stay.”

Disney’s progressive ‘Strange World’ cartoon flops with disastrous $18M opening on a $180M budget

Disney’s attempt to push the woke agenda in children’s entertainment has royally flopped at the box office. “Strange World” features a gay teen as the main character and follows his romance; there is an environmental message as well.

Opening weekend sales came in well below projections, grossing a mere $11.9 million over the three-day weekend and $18.6 million over the five-day Thanksgiving holiday.

The Wrap called the movie a “historic bomb” due to its $180 million reported budget. Variety projected that the flick could lose as much as $100 million.

The Washington Times reports “the movie centers on a family of explorers embarking on a journey to save their planet from a mysterious environmental crisis, but ‘tries too hard to earn the diversity merit badge,’ as the MovieWeb review says.”

Not only is Disney attempting to impose propaganda on youth, but it has zero bravery in doing so. In countries where there is virtually zero acceptance and tolerance for homosexuality, Disney opted to skip out. According to CartoonBrew20, Disney did not release in international markets including China and the Middle East.

The Washington Times reports:

The film’s poor reception contributed to the perception of wokeness-run-amok at Disney, which was criticized for the lesbian kiss scene in “Lightyear,” a $200 million animated feature released in June that has grossed $115 million domestically, according to BombReport.

Last week, Disney rehired Bob Iger to replace CEO Bob Chapek, who landed the company in a feud with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the state law barring instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
