The Disney company adds to the list
of reasons for boycotting it

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 1/14/2021 6:44:35 PM

I am a huge fan of classic Disney fare. Over the years, though, I've come to see Disney as a truly toxic company. The only reason I won't boycott it over its announcement that it will not fund politicians who challenged the Electoral College certification is that I'm already boycotting it. Before I get to Disney's current fall (even farther) from grace, let me explain why I've been boycotting Disney for years. It was actually a hard habit to break. As is true for every American, I grew up on Disney fare. The early works are utterly enchanting.

I remember the cute (Dumbo) and the scary (Snow White - the Wicked Queen was the stuff of nightmares)… Like everything else, the original Disney got lost in translation.

I think conservative writers should no longer refer to the Democratic Party as such. They should call it what it has become, the Communist Party. If all conservative writers called it only that perhaps the name would catch on and conservative people in general would start referring to it that way. I doubt its members would object after maybe an initial denial.

Should the Conservatives been accepting contributions from Disney? As the writer says, they have been rotten for years. So, why would you accept their money?

I remember the first Disney movie I saw. It was in in my 4th grade class and it was Bambi. My best friend at the time was a White girl named Sue Ann and both she and I cried after what happened to his mom. I got teased being a black boy having a friend who was a girl but nonetheless I enjoyed everything Disney up a few years ago. They’ve acquired so much as in ABC News Corp, Star Wars and Marvel Comics and they’ve become nothing but a big woke joke. They’ve pretty much turned staples of my childhood and destroyed them with politically correct stupidity. Especially Marvel Comics. This latest dumb stunt by them just makes me want to continue to have NOTHING to do with anything Disney.

I don't remember too much about the Dumbo movie, been too long ago, but I am thinking there was something about the death of Dumbo's mother that was unsettling for kids.

Au contraire, today’s Democratic Party is not espousing or enacting communism. It has gone full-bore fascist. There is no drive to seize and nationalize corporations. Fascist regimes control businesses. Businesses curry favor with the regime to survive. While Big Tech acts as tho it is in charge much of its recent actions in trampling fee speech has been prodded on by Democrats. Communism may be the goal of stupid people like the squad but the party is getting rich off business while getting businesses to do the party’s dirty work.

The dirty secret is Disney doesn't need Americans. They can sell their wares in China and Europe and South America who'll pay for Disney's stuff with our tax dollars.

# 5 - I don't think Dumbo's mother dies. I think you're remembering the scene where she's locked up and Dumbo goes to the wooden cage to see her. He can't because the barred window is too high but she knows he's there so reaches out her trunk to touch him. Then this beautifully sad music plays and his mother caresses him, cradles him in her trunk and swings him back and forth, it is the sweetest and saddest scene ever. I'm like everyone here, Disney was part of my growing up. No so for our children and grandchildren.

Disney was at one time a respectable clean family entertainment company. After the passing of Walt Disney, the company has morphed into another leftist run company with lots of trash as entertainment and communist ABC news. When you go to Florida forget Disneyworld. Go to the beach instead.

I do not boycott, since a boycott indicates a temporary stoppage to something. No, the NFL, NBA, Disney, Hallmark Channel, and countless other nasty lie-beral cesspools have lost me permanently. There is nothing, and I do mean absolutely nothing, that any of them can ever do to see another penny of my money or get me to waste another second on their lie-beral cesspool products and shows. Companies laugh at "boycotts", since they know they can eventually wear down someone who is boycotting them. When you are done with a company, and stick to your cards never to go back, that is when you actually make a tiny dent in their pure evil!!!! Remember, one termite can do a little damage, but a huge swarm of termites can take down a house. Be part of the swarm!!!!!

The first Disney I saw was Song of the South. My Grandma took me! It was something I never forgot! I loved "Zip a Dee Doo Da" and the Blue Birds flitting around. It was magical! My children didn't get to Disney World until they were early Teens. We did a once in a lifetime Trip! Everyone loved it. NOW...I found if we wanted to take the grandchildren to Disney, we had to call first to see when "GAY DAYS" were on the Calendar. How sad is that! Nothing worse than watching the News show what took place on Gay Days. Grown men, in Speedos and Feather Boas marching in the Streets! Try to explain that to a 6 year old! That did it for me. I live an hour from Disney World, I tell people that visit, you're welcome to stay here, but don't expect us to go with you. Not spending my money there anymore!

17 beat me to it. The song 'Baby Mine' accompanies the tender and achingly poignant scene with Dumbo and his caged mother. Music was always a vital and delightful ingredient in Disney classics. But it's not widely known that, in Silly Symphonies' 'The Grasshopper and the Ants', Disney also gave the DNC their permanent theme song: ' The World Owes Me A Living".

The Phantom Inauguration 11 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 1/21/2021 3:19:08 PM Post Reply
Phantom pain is pain that a person feels in a body part, usually a limb, that is no longer there. That’s kind of how yesterday’s Presidential Inauguration felt. The limb missing was the lack of supporters and even protestors at the event. BOTH are part of American democracy, and both were totally restricted from the Capitol Mall. The Inauguration is an American tradition, but regular Americans weren’t allowed to be a part. How wrong is that? How difficult could it have been to pull off an event that allowed people with 28,000 National Guard troops in place to keep the peace? Fireworks are great to see… in person. On television

A Democratic Party headquarters was damaged, an American flag burned, and marchers filled the streets in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, following Biden’s inauguration. Antifa was reportedly behind the activity, known during the summer as “peaceful protests.” The New York Times reported that “federal agents in camouflage — now working under the Biden administration — blanketed streets with tear gas and unleashed volleys of welt-inducing pepper balls as they confronted a crowd that gathered outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement building near downtown.” Some in the group of about 150 people smashed windows and spray-painted anarchist symbols at the political party building. Police said eight arrests were made in the area.

A twin suicide bombing in Baghdad’s Tayaran square, packed with people shopping, left two dozen dead on Thursday afternoon, in the most deadly attack in more than 18 months, local reports said, recalling past years when suicide bombings like this were routine in Iraq. Islamic State perpetrated many attacks and while it is not known if this was an ISIS attack, it has its hallmarks. The bombing, four kilometers from the US embassy compound, occurred in an area which has witnessed several mass protests over the last year and a half. In the fall of 2019 protesters often besieged security forces on Al Jumhuriya bridge,

Prime Minister Johnson, a notionally conservative politician, made the comments after Lisa Nandy, shadow foreign secretary for the opposition Labour party, had praised Mr Biden, 78, as “a woke guy”. “[H]e appointed an amazingly strong woman of colour who is also pro-[abortion] as his running mate, he mentioned the trans community in his victory speech, he stood up for the Black Lives Matter protesters, he spoke out about the policing of that movement,” Nandy gushed to the left-wing Guardian newspaper

It is worth noting today that media outlets are reporting Joe Biden will serve his first full day as President of the United States, and no American cities are burning. No one is calling for the end of the Republic. America still stands. Two weeks ago, an armed mob briefly took over the Capitol building. Their detestable actions were widely condemned and the people who were fine with what happened were a small, but vocal, minority. So small, in fact, that they barely count as even a minority.

It’s an odd way to seek national unity: call a significant portion of the American public white supremacists, racists, and nativists. Welcome to the Biden presidency. Joe Biden’s inaugural speech as 46th president is predictably being hailed for its “unifying” message. And just as predictably, his invocations of the divisive bromides of the identitarian Left are being swept under the rug. According to Biden, we are a “great nation” and a “good people.” But we also oppress minorities with an ever-rising fervor. “Growing inequity” is among the greatest challenges facing the country, according to Biden, along with the “sting of systemic racism” and encroaching “white supremacy.”

• So, Joe Biden is now President. Can’t you just feel the excitement? • No, seriously—has there been a new president in the last 70 years entering office with less enthusiasm than Slow Joe? I caught a YouGov poll today reporting that Joe Biden’s public approval rating is 52 percent—among the lowest for an incoming president since this polling question began decades ago. (Obama was at 69 percent on inauguration day.) • Biden has one mandate—not to be Donald Trump. Biden won’t be able to settle for that. The good news for Republicans is that recent Democratic presidents invariably overreach, and provoke a backlash among swing voters.

Donald Trump eschewed most of the traditional roles a president fills for the inauguration of his successor, except one: He left a letter for President Joe Biden. White House spokesman Judd Deere confirmed Wednesday before Biden took the oath that Trump left a note for his successor. Presidents usually leave a note of congratulations and support behind in the Oval Office, but some had questioned whether Trump would do so given his hesitancy to even acknowledge Biden’s victory. The White House did not release contents of Trump's note: "It’s a letter between 45 and 46," Deere said. Later on Wednesday, Biden confirmed he received the letter, telling reporters

President Biden took the oath of office on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, four years after he attended the inauguration of President Trump as the outgoing vice president. Mr. Trump didn't attend Mr. Biden's inauguration, flying instead on Air Force One earlier in the day to his Florida home. The inauguration comes two weeks after supporters of Mr. Trump attacked the U.S. Capitol, which led authorities to lock down the surrounding area and close the National Mall to the crowd that traditionally gathers on Inauguration Day.

Biden’s executive orders are in line with campaign promises that he would overturn a number of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies on day one and come as part of a slate of 17 executive orders, memorandums and proclamations the Democrat will issue on his first day. While the Supreme Court stopped Trump from terminating DACA, Biden’s executive order directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to “take all appropriate actions
