A Disneyland guest recorded a violent brawl that broke out between family members at Disneyland on Sunday. The video, dated July 6, 2019, shows at least two men and two women involved in the fight at Mickey’s Toontown, with others trying to intervene and stop the altercation. Children, along with other park guests, witnessed the fight. At one point a woman involved in the altercation could be seen hobbling out of her motorized chair and falling.Another woman could be seen spitting in a man’s face. He then punched her in retaliation. The people involved in the fight were immediately escorted out of the park, a Disneyland official told KTLA


You guessed right.

This video gives credence to the old saying that when seconds count, the police, or in this case, Disney Security, are only minutes away. They were probably busy screening bags to make sure someone did not bring in an unauthorized cold drink. Seems as if Disney is not one of the safest places around based upon the response time.

Wow. Must have been some of that famous “disrespecting” we hear so much about. Way to behave in front of children and at D-Land, no less! The spectators who intervened were brave and really stupid—I was waiting for them to get hit. And, where the heck was park security? This is the kind of ghetto behavior you expect at Magic Mountain, not D-Land. But boy, they have cameras every foot in all the rides (look for them on the Pirates ride next time) to make sure you don’t touch anything. This is really bad for the park—you can see how things can go terribly wrong very quickly with no one to help but some brave souls in the crowd. We can get in for free due to my husband’s work connections but I will never go back for a multitude of reasons now that our son is grown, and this just convinces me I’m right. Awful.

All Gang Turf these days, a rough neighborhood with gang carrying firearms. It is not safe to move around the parking lots at night, so sad. Knots Berry Farm is the same way, all gun carrying gang turf members. Not a safe place for the family at any time, but at night, beware.

I'm not a fan of Disney parks generally - the person who said that it's like standing in line in a sauna and lighting hundred dollar bills on fire is right. But I can't understand why there wasn't security there immediately. Given that they worry about being a target for terrorism it's hard to believe that a situation like that could continue for so long with no security interference - putting aside that anyone could attack anyone for that long in such an otherwise controlled environment.

Posted by M2 7/21/2019 11:13:40 AM Post Reply
Dear Daily Signal: Anyone who wants to understand why American political life is so debased should consider what socialist influences have done to our public schools; that’s my response to Jarrett Stepman’s commentary (“I Went to a Socialism Conference. Here Are My 6 Observations).” The promises are relentlessly upbeat and even humanistic. The reality is always more decay, more mediocrity, more people prevented from reaching their potential. My thesis is that public schools are the political reality served up billboard-size. Everyone can understand if they bother to look. For example, public schools claim to teach reading, but we have 50 million functional illiterates. That’s socialism in action, also known as liberalism,

CUMMINGS: "George, no matter where I go, what I'm hearing over and over again from my constituents is, "Please save our democracy. Please save our country." And you know something else they say, George? They say "I'm scared." I have never, in my total of 37 years in public service, ever heard a constituent say they were scared of their leader."

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, one of the two dozen Democrats competing for the party's presidential nomination, said President Trump is weaponizing racial animus to sow division in the country for his own political gain. "He is somebody that is using race like a weapon to divide our country against itself," Booker said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "He's been using it since before he became president as a way to accelerate his gaining of political power." The New Jersey Democrat was referring to the president's recent attacks against four progressive lawmakers of color. Last week, Mr. Trump posted a series of racist tweets suggesting that Reps.

The Republican National Committee raised more than twice as much as the Democratic National Committee in June – $20.7 million compared to the DNC’s $8.5 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings, Politico reported. “Our record-smashing fundraising haul is a testament to the ongoing enthusiasm for President Trump and the pro-growth agenda that is delivering for every American across this country," GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to Fox News last week. The RNC currently has $43.5 million, more than double the cash on hand as the DNC’s $9.3 million. The DNC spent heavily on events related to the debates and the presidential candidates last month,

Something's changed about Ted Cruz – and it’s not just the beard. First, there was the common ground with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Then, there was the push for people to donate supplies to detained migrants at the border. Then, Cruz called out Tennessee for honoring a Confederate Army general with an ugly past.

At a Judiciary Committee hearing on July 12, Hank said that he has heard more and more Republicans calling the former special counsel “[Mew-ler],” instead of “[Muller].” “I’ve heard more and more Republicans starting to pronounce Director Mueller’s name as ‘[Mew-ler].'” I’ve been hearing that over the past few weeks.

The Democrats intend to steal the presidency in 2020. It is the only way they can “win.” They’ve learned this. They’ve lived it. And without a decisive turnout in 2020 they believe they have mastered the process. If you thought that Bush vs. Gore, or the Georgia and Florida 2018 recounts were ugly, keep your powder dry. 2020 will be the worst yet. All the signs point to this, assuming they can actually find a candidate. Once they do however, the largest scale assault on our free elections ever attempted will be unleashed.

If we are wanting to continue to play this influential role on the international stage it will require further funding for our armed forces, not least the Royal Navy. Our Royal Navy is too small to manage our interests across the globe.” The news comes after it emerged that Tehran had ignored warnings from a British warship against seizing a UK-flagged tanker in the Gulf.

Oregon students will be allowed to take “mental health days” off from school, just as they would sick days, under a new bill signed by the governor. The bill would allow excused school absences for mental or behavioral health and is a victory for youth activists — who also unsuccessfully fought for gun control and lowering the voting age. The students behind the measure say it’s meant to change the stigma around mental health in a state that has some of the United States’ highest suicide rates.
