To the thread in general - there is a LOT of evidence that Disney covers up crimes, including pedophilia, etc. The parks have their own separate
police force, and there have been numerous allegations of their employees covering up all sorts of crimes, and even destroying evidence. There have
been issues of abuses of employees (their own fire department), covering up known sex offenders, etc. ANY company that attracts so many children has
a legal and moral obligation to screen their employees, but Disney refuses to do so. They seem to have more of these sex offenders than any other
theme park company in the nation.
As for the issues in the videos, I have SEEN these for myself - frame by frame - and they are real, and intentional. You can't write it off as a few
disgruntled employees, of a few employees playing a joke, either, because ALL of these things made it into the movies. With the amount of editing and
pre-screening done, there is no way that many such things could get into their films by accident or someone overlooking them. This is clearly
intentional. Add to the list that we have already seen here (The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Aladdin) movies like The Hunchback of Notre Dame, in
which the priest was actively and clearly LUSTING AFTER the gypsy girl. Accidental? The entire scene? Not even close. The latest animation, The
Princess and the Frog, was chock full of negative ideas. Yes, I have seen it. Sorry I wasted the money.
Now, I will say that I don't think ANY of this has anything to do with Walt - he died back in '66, long before these things started showing up in
the movies. The older ones? Nothing like any of that I can find, and I have looked. However, Disney isn't any longer the company that Walt made,
and it isn't being run the way he ran it.
When my husband was stationed in Florida, we were looking forward to talking the kids to Disney, but that changed. Read a book (can't recall title,
something about uncovering/exposing the mouse) about many of the issues, then verified the facts with all the films (had already seen the original
pornographic Mermaid cover), and finally decided we would not go. Several years in that state, five kids, and they got no visits from us. We spent
our money in other theme parks, instead. Too much risk.
Of course, any such park could attract pedophiles, but most parks would not cover it up, and would report these people to the police. Disney's
failures in this area indicate support of those types. NO EXCUSE for that. No way.
For those stating that you can find negative materials in other shows - that isn't an excuse. Programs like South Park and Family Guy are NOT geared
to kids, and none of those programs ever get watched in my house. Disney is geared to kids. If you think it's not so bad, watch the stuff on their
own network, geared to the teens and pre-teens, and see if you don't change your mind. I have viewed some of the shows (without the kids around),
and seen more to object to than I see on prime time sitcoms.
Wise parents will screen what their kids watch. There are some decent programs out there. For those interested, Veggie Tales and 3-2-1 Penguins are
great kid videos, and you won't ever find perverted material in those. Disney, I review first.
I will give a little credit - in the DVD version of the Little Mermaid, they seem to have finally edited out that problem with the priest.
