Disney+ Is Indoctrinating Children With CRT, Telling Them That Blacks Are Owed Reparations And That Lincoln Didn't Really Free the Slaves

I forgot to link this in yesterday's post about the Disney proxy fight.

This is what people's $8 per month for Disney+ is paying for: Hardcore leftwing race indoctrination.

The show is "The Proud Family." Pride pride pride.

I also mentioned yesterday that Sam Smithhad a video available to children featuring him at a p!ss orgy.

If you want to see a clip from that -- and YouTube allows children to see this; there's no age restriction on it -- here it is. It's gross. It's not real, but it is clearly a simulated water sports session. Plus bondage and domination.

And YouTube says, "Kids need to see this."

But they're not groomers. They're not recruiting.

That's a Conspiracy Theory.

By the way, Sam, I know you're not Satan, because Satan wouldn't be fat as a cow.

Or, the ones who will be pissed and loud and harass the crap out of us and sue us and force us into more DIE BS.

I think it's more accurate to say that the culture is in the middle of a long process of splintering. The whole mass media culture is changing from when Hollywood and the Big Three networks created American culture, to a certain extent, to a place where thousands of much small entities create a much more varied culture without much in the way of connecting it all together.

Disney is a remnant of the old way, the dying way. It is just hastening its status as a smaller player in the larger cultural landscape than it otherwise would be.

It's a larger version of the late night talk shows realizing they'll never get their big audiences back, so they just appeal to the audiences they think are around.

But he was equally clear, throughout his entire public career, that he personally despised slavery and thought it incompatible with a nation founded on liberty. And he said so far more eloquently than just about anyone else at the time. So this is just total bullsh*t, yet again.

72 And, Disney is learning that if you hire woke employees, they'll never be happy:
Disney World unions vote down offer covering 45,000 workers Union members voted down a contract proposal covering tens of thousands of Walt Disney World service workers, saying it didn’t go far enough toward helping employees face cost-of-living hikes in housing and other expenses in central Florida.

The proposal rejected on Friday would have raised the starting minimum wage to $20 an hour for all service workers by the last year of the five-year contract, an increase of $1 each year for a majority of the workers it covered. Certain positions, like housekeepers, bus drivers and culinary jobs, would start immediately at a minimum of $20 under the proposal.


Disney can afford it! They own and operate various business units, including major television broadcasting and cable television networks and entertainment networks.

A few weeks ago, The Catholic League released a documentary (I think about 50 minutes long) on Disney called “Walt’s Disenchanted Kingdom.” Most of what's presented won't be new to most of us here, but hopefully it will open the eyes of the ignorant who continue to patronize Disney despite its trashing of their traditional values.

98 There has been a lot of talk about how we conservatives need to engage in culture, in hopes of changing it. Now, I believe that this is a complete waste of time. It's now time to disengage from it.

If we're talking about engaging in what is current and new, which is what the media presents to us, I'd say that none of it - none of it - is worth engaging in. We have a millennia's worth of classic (not just classical) music, art and literature to read and enjoy. There's more than enough there for us to learn and benefit from.

We're now in a modern-day Dark Ages. It was in the discovery of the old texts that we largely sparked the original Renaissance. We need to do the same today. Only when we provide something of substance to present to this culture will they turn back to what they threw away. In the meantime, our kids can benefit from the knowledge the current culture ignores.

Forever chasing a hopeless dream. And now they want to destroy children's lives because they are SURE they have the answer. (And the answer of "No, you're not a female in a male body. You're a male with issues you need to resolve" is unacceptable because it's not what they want.)

129 And also, slaves didn't "build this country." They were laborers, so you can say they contributed something, but that's as far as you can go. Claiming that they created American prosperity and modern life is like claiming all Edison's inventions were actually created by his employees. They put the devices together according to Edison's designs (and yes, some added innovations here and there), but the vision and the overall direction were Edison's alone.

If you were a slave laborer, you weren't meaningless, but you don't get to say that you built the country.

193 A lot of the reparations talk arises out of the belief that has been popular among for "black nationalists" for decades - the belief that white people are only rich because of the money that they stole, and continue to steal, from black people.

This doesn't explain Canada, which is about as affluent as the United States and doesn't have a lot of black people; and if you thought that theory was correct, the whites living in heavily black areas should be much richer than whites living elsewhere, which isn't true.

203 If there are changes coming to the Reedy Creek situation, it's not giving control back to Disney. It's about reorganizing the proposed changes to report to a board that DeSantis appoints:

“We are not going to have a corporation controlling its own government. That’s going to revert to the state,” DeSantis said Wednesday. “The state is going to have a board to run it, so Disney will not have self-governing status anymore. We are going to make sure that there are no special legal privileges and that they are abiding by the same laws. That’ll be in the bill, and we’re making sure they are paying their fair share of taxes and paying the debt.”

It's weird that prior to the Civil War that the slave states were much poorer than the free states, isn't it?
Posted by: The ARC of History!

Poverty may be viewed as a relative thing. A lot of people were poor in those days, even by the standards of the day. But around 4 million black people were slaves, and not free.
Was the South poor? Well, a lot of people in the South were poor, but about 10 thousand of the biggest land owners and slave holders were actually pretty rich.
The "book value" of the enslaved black men and women was more than the value of all the railroads and banks in the United States at that time.
Lincoln freed the slaves?
Hundreds of thousands of Union soldiers freed the slaves, because they won the war.
And it was a tragic war, with some of the best men in the country slaying each other. All because the richest people in the South who owned most of the slaves talked the majority into fighting a war for them.

The nominees would then need to be confirmed by Florida state senators. The proposed legislation would keep in place Reedy Creek’s obligation to almost $1 billion of outstanding bonds."

249 On Monday, NORAD commander Gen. Glen VanHereck told reporters that spy balloons entered US airspace three times during the Trump administration, but “that we did not detect those threats,” calling it a “domain awareness gap.”

“Every day as a NORAD commander, it’s my responsibility to detect threats to North America. I will tell you that we did not detect those threats,” VanHereck said. “And that’s a domain awareness gap that we have to figure out, but I don’t want to go into further detail.”

VanHereck then said that the US intelligence community was able to determine the Trump-era transits after the fact “from additional means that made us aware of those balloons that were previously approaching North America or transited North America.”

"DeSantis will also rename the site, switching its name from Reedy Creek to the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District. A new bill was proposed by Florida politicians on Monday, which would give the governor full control over the district, and the ability to appoint the five-member board of supervisors that runs the special district. The nominees would then need to be confirmed by Florida state senators. The proposed legislation would keep in place Reedy Creek’s obligation to almost $1 billion of outstanding bonds." The legislation was proposed yesterday.

275 When slavery was ended in the United States, the government paid slaves a sum to help them get started in making a new life. Booker T Washington wrote in his book that most of them spent the money on fine clothes and a carriage to ride around, etc.

Then they had nothing and had to sell the carriage. That's a large reason why Booker opened up the Tuskeegee institute, to try to educate former slaves and teach them basic life and labor skills. The first lesson? Build the institute. Literally craft the buildings and structures that made up the institute.

30,192 died as prisoners of war
24,881 died of non-battle causes
1,804 members of the Navy were killed
3,000 died of wound of accident
2,226 were wounded. 1 Army commander, 3 corps commanders, 14 division commanders, and 67 brigade commanders, including 32 generals, were killed in the Union Army.

It made it a fait accompli, since it guaranteed the practical end of slavery in most of the states in the post-war environment.

Had he not done so, there is some chance the war and post-war environment doesn't see a quick resolution on the issue.

I'm a little sick of the vapid revisionist history that fails to account for the time and circumstances of his decisions. Lincoln did what he could within the means he had available to him. He never wanted war, and the intransigence of the Southern States is what took us there. Lincoln knew that every day of that war Americans, on both sides would die. He never wanted that.

317 ...Poverty may be viewed as a relative thing. A lot of people were poor in those days, even by the standards of the day. But around 4 million black people were slaves, and not free.
Was the South poor? Well, a lot of people in the South were poor, but about 10 thousand of the biggest land owners and slave holders were actually pretty rich.
The "book value" of the enslaved black men and women was more than the value of all the railroads and banks in the United States at that time.
Lincoln freed the slaves?
Hundreds of thousands of Union soldiers freed the slaves, because they won the war.
And it was a tragic war, with some of the best men in the country slaying each other. All because the richest people in the South who owned most of the slaves talked the majority into fighting a war for them.

This is a great point. The (Joseph) Bond Slave Auction of 1860 valued slaves at an average price of $1,000 each. That's $4 billion back then. On paper, it would have been impossible to buy their freedom without bankrupting the country. War was the only answer.

As I noted jokingly yesterday. The radar collection reporter system has a filter on it to flag concerns. A slow moving balloon, is filtered out - not a threat. Because weather balloons, UFO's etc etc. Its not that we couldn't see it, it's that we didn't see it because they automatically filtered it out as being not concerning. In retrospect they went back and looked for balloons, and it popped right out. Because it was there all along.

Agreed. I like the man but he's way off base regarding Lincoln.

Shelby Foote phrased the emancipation proclamation as a sort of bet: to free the slaves, the Union Army would need to win battles and advance.

Psychologically, it was a huge step for both Lincoln and the North as it said out loud that Emancipation, not just re-union, was a war goal. John Andrew of Mass said it was 'a poor law but a mighty act' and that's how I regard it.

Lincoln did a lot hustling to get a proper constitutional amendment passed, so the idea that Lincoln didn't care about the issue is just revisionist history, the kind Razorfist has read too much of.

There is absolutely no reason, in fact to even engage in social media, or use Google as a search engine. For some reason, we seem to believe that the quality of search available in, say, 2010 just wouldn't do in the present day. No reason to get faster search but with GOOG's 'curated' results now, for instance.

Because weather balloons, UFO's etc etc. Its not that we couldn't see it, it's that we didn't see it because they automatically filtered it out as being not concerning. In retrospect they went back and looked for balloons, and it popped right out. Because it was there all along.

Right, everyone has problems and every man has done wrong, but some have done great good as well. Pretending Abraham Lincoln was a monster who ruined everything and was evil it ludicrous. As someone noted above, if there ever was a time to suspend habeus corpus its when half of the nation rebels and attacks the other half.

Whether that rebellion was justified or not, whether the South had good cause or not is a separate issue. The President of the United States is specifically tasked with protecting the nation. The Constitution specifically states that emergencies may arise, which require -- according to the writers of the constitution -- emergency actions that temporarily suspend normal procedures and protections of rights.

Articles of Confederation were clear on the permanence of Union. Countries are generally presumed not to be fragmentable by simple votes, which the Confederacy also held to be the true as they put down secessionists who sought to leave them.

Indians (feather) and many other groups will eventually be added to the reparations list. The blacks are the poster children to get the scheme initially set-up in some locations. Later the Left will do what it always does - increase its demands after a win.

It appears the Leftists are initiating a huge astroturf and white guilt operation for its reparations for blacks scheme. They are in the initial phase of the scheme - getting a few cities and counties to begin paying reparations. In parallel, I believe the the Leftists intend to start a sort of reparations bidding war; cities, counties, and states will want to demonstrate they are more down with the cause than the others by approving ever-increasing reparations amounts.

Thank you for that honest, factual perspective. Lincoln was a big believer that the Declaration was more of a hiding document for the republic. Often even more so than the Constitution.

This goes for everything. All of our media is Communist, straight up.

But people can't stop. It's weird. Not only is it all Communist propaganda, but it no longer has any quality left - which is inevitable when your mission is agitprop instead of art.

Every movie, every book, every song, every tv show, everything is just an onslaught of horrifically awful bullshit of the lowest possible grade, and frequently laden with overtly hateful messages. Hateful of you, specifically, unless you happen to be a full-on woke NPC who lives on the Left Pole.

But, our media says "THIS IS ENTERTAINMENT" and people want to be entertained. There is apparently nothing shitty enough to get people to tune out. They just keep lining up and saying "yeah, I'm a piece of shit because I'm white, now please throw that ball," or "sure, kids should chop off their dongs and catch monkeypox at a piss orgy, now please sing that song!"

456 446 their content was 90% new movies, and almost nothing of their gigantic catalog Iger purchased before starting Disney+.

That's why Disney+ is losing, what was it, $4 billion a year or something? They have a massive back catalog and most of it's not on the service, either due to incompetence or wokeness. I cancelled it a long time ago for that reason.

It's not that the library isn't there. It's that the massive costs for the new content are simply not being made up by subscription revenue. The 160 million subscriber thing is misleading because not nearly all of them pay full price. Places like India pay about $1 per month

And they're putting something like $300-500 million worth of new content on the service every month.

Covid gave them the idea that the theater was dead and they could finally achieve what these studios have wanted forever: a pay for play model where every time you view their content you pay them. No more buying a VHS and watching it until it falls apart. You pay regularly for the pleasure of access. Except...the cost to actually cover would require something like $40 monthly subscriptions. Which precious few people would pay.

490 Lincoln the man might have found it distastefully grandiose

I suspect he would have, based on his writings and background.

And I agree, Aetius, we should look at people as a whole package. Some terrible people did good things. Some good people did terrible things. Its good to recognize both. I think Lincoln went way too far, but overall was a good president and a good man.

I think the South was right about states rights and individual sovereignty over federal power, and we've been suffering from that loss ever since. But in the same light as above, the rebellion was ABSOLUTELY about slavery, and the Confederate constitution several times in very explicit language enshrined slavery permanently into their law. Yes, we can argue it was about state rights -- but the focus and concern of those state rights was to retain slavery forever without any outside interference.

Again, there's good and bad in almost everything. Hitler loved dogs. That doesn't mean he wasn't also a horrible person.

My theory is that it has to do with the way that we've destroyed the social institutions which used to provide adults with connection and an outlet. Smaller families with kids further spread out, more relocations for work, replacing small-time sporting events and entertainment with video games and home theater, etc. As a result, people never grow out of the entertainment which they enjoyed as kids.

Demonstrable fallacy. You're not even going to try and make an argument to support your supposition and pathos plea, are you? Lincoln fought a war to save the republic. One his adversaries seemed determined to fight and do so by force when it looked as though it may not go their way. He didn't fight a war of empire. He fought a justifiable war for the republic using our founding principles as a basis for his actions. But you be you.

This is a red herring because it wasn't a principle to which the CSA/Democrats really subscribed.

545 Technically the emancipation proclamation did not free any slaves. By its terms is only applied to the areas not controlled by Union armies. Slaves in areas already conquered by the Union were not freed. So, yea, Lincoln (as an individual citizen or even as President) did not and could not "free the slaves." But he did lead an abolitionist movement to the White House, fought and won a war against the slave states, and pushed the 13th Amendment through Congress. So, he has that going for him...

Yeah its a serious trend in omdern culture for adults to want to never grow up, never mature, and never change from their teenage years. Its not just "covered by parents insurance until age 26" Obamacare, its cultural and lifestyle. Its where all the bitching about "adulting" and how hAARRRD it is to raise a kid or keep a house and anger that they cannot play video games or go clubbing every night like they used to.

I mean, we're all guilty of it to some degree, because we're part of the culture and it seeps into us like black ink into rag paper. I play far too many video games, because it helps me escape depression and sadness in my life. My brother bought like 9000 DVDs to watch so he'd have anything he wanted on demand.

Nobody wants to grow up any more, and worse, society absolutely champions and celebrates this. Its okay to have some diversions and entertainment in your life, but that's not supposed to be the goal.

It varies by firm, but I think the Twitter experience has a lot of people asking some difficult questions and a lot more people clamming up in terror.

Musk fired 75% of Twitter. No remotely healthy, well-balanced company could survive that kind of decline. That's a tremendous reduction. Yet Twitter survived and appears to be doing well, releasing updates faster and the platform has better reliability.

That means that at least 75% of Twitter's workforce was doing things they shouldn't be doing. That's a wake-up call. I doubt that most high tech firms are as bad as Twitter, but I strongly suspect that basically all of them are looking a little more closely at things and wondering, "what do these people actually *do?*"

589 This is more an appeal to a popular idea than an actual ideal put consistently into practice.

Yeah, its like small government conservatives who, when thinking of being in power, too often think of that in terms of "how I can use the government to crush my enemies". People are rarely consistent and are too often self interested without real integrity.

You mean these founding principles?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.

599 It's fine to enjoy Disney as an adult, but that shouldn't be your only, or primary form of entertainment. Ditto D&D. I know plenty of adults who play D&D, Warhammer, video games, etc. The difference is whether or not that's their only outlet.

Honestly if you're a functional adult (job, house, car, good credit, all that stuff) what you do in your free time is fuck-all the concern of other people. (Unless it involves other people, of course). Model railroads are just as nerdy and pointless as D&D or video games but they were considered fine things 50+ years ago.

611 There are still some old Disney shows my daughter likes to watch, KC Undercover, Jessie, Liv and Maddie, Lab Rats. Those were all done before the woke takeover and are pretty good. The show Jessie actually has some old school slapstick and Three Stooges type comedy, and they constantly make fun of their butler being fat and lazy, things you couldn't say now. I've been on the fence for keeping Disney+ because those are decent entertainment but I don't think I can justify it anymore.

Yeah, as an adult, your day should be mostly responsibility -- to your children, to your spouse, to your boss -- then when there's some free time, something for yourself. This idea that work is something we're forced to do in order to have all the neat stuff we want is completely wrong and incredibly corrosive.

Work is part of life, its part of being human. Its a goal in and of its self: contributing to society, achieving goals, doing the best job you can in order to glorify God, all the stuff the Protestant Work Ethic used to be about, that build this country.

The deliberate destruction of this concept goes straight back to communism. A nation that does not view work as an unjust burden imposed on them by an oppressive class is impossible to conquer with communism.

We don’t have to be the majority - we just have to be greater than their profit margin. And the problem Disney has is that we are much more numerous than their profit margin can withstand. “Red” lost money. “Lightyear” bombed and lost money. “Strange World” lost money. Disney + lost a Billion dollars last quarter.

Disney, to make a profit and support the Goliath sized overhead they carry will have to bend the knee. Eventually.

634 Right now, Black people represent approximately 14% of the population of America. Of those, I doubt that they all had ancestors who were slaves. And of those who had ancestors who were slaves, no doubt they also had other people in their lineage who were not, such as ancestors who married non slaves, throughout their family history. So to attempt to give reparations to people based upon the color of their skin is a pretty weak basis for proof that their ancestors were slaves.
Myself, I never owned slaves. And the Black people living today never WERE slaves. In fact, they have more opportunities now then when I was in high school. So perhaps I should be the one to get reparations. I had to go to work upon graduation from high school, even though I had the grades for college. But other races got scholarships before me, based upon their minority status.
I know, how about if minorities just stop using their minority status as a crutch, and be glad that they live in a country that allows them the freedom to attend college and study anything that they desire? And to move up on their own hard work, instead of trying to pull others down? Forget it, not going to happen.
