Disney Is Evil December 6, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, Basics, disaster, error, General Catholic, horror, paganism, Revolution, scandals, secularism, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
As if you needed me to tell you that, but a recent post I found highlights the degree to which formerly family-oriented Disney now leads the cultural charge against the family and all moral decency. I add some additional anecdotes based on recent experience below the quote, to which I add a few comments:
…..Consider television’s portrayal of children and family relationships. While the twentieth century offered up families like Leave it to Beaver (where kids learned valuable moral lessons from their parents) as well as the Brady Bunch, the Partridges, and the Huxtables (all of which emphasized respect for each other and the compromises necessary to make a family work), today the family is too often a celebration of ridicule and dysfunction.
Today’s TV families have gone from being respectful and supportive to being snarky, hostile, and rude. Perhaps it was the success of the crass Married… with Children that marked the beginning of this trend, but it’s impossible to turn on the television now and see children that are truly role-models—even from supposedly family-friendly companies like Disney. [This trend was not accidental. It was deliberate, part of the Left’s war on decency but especially Catholic morals going back several centuries. TV was a great prize for them in that respect, bringing incredibly powerful, influential images into people’s homes for hours at a time, images and stories which could be, and have been, used to radically change people’s beliefs and detach them from God-given truth.]
In fact, according to the latest research from the Parent Television Council, Disney-owned ABC and Fox are the two worst offenders for vulgarity with TV shows that regularly feature children using profanity and sexual dialogue. The worst of all shows is the ABC “family” sitcom The Real O’Neals, which “contains more sexual dialog involving teen and child characters than any other primetime program on broadcast TV.” [Conceived by the deplorable (heh) Dan Savage, obviously seeking to normalize perversion in others to make his stand out a bit less while also carrying out his diabolical jihad against the Church he left as a young man. I have found all Disney-related channels, but especially anything carrying the ABC label, to be the most morally offensive of any broadcast (airborne) network around. Even their ads for their own programs are absolutely atrocious, featuring same-sex making out/groping involving teens, among other things. And these appeared on so-called “ABC Family,” seen while stuck in a hotel room one night while traveling. You can’t even watch a college football game without having to send the kids out of the room, for fear of the network ads]
Even cartoons aren’t free of obscenities and sexual situations—and we’re not talking about Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. Yes, innuendo has always been popular in children’s programming (watch the original Batman TV series as an adult and you will see what I mean) but the situations and comments broadcast today aren’t subtle—they’re explicit.
Another example. We don’t watch much TV, save for the aforementioned college football which is now essentially over (since I don’t have ESPN and that’s where virtually all the bowls are). But I do have a computer, I have Amazon Prime, and they have a ton of “free” content. I have availed myself of that just a little until recently, when I got sucked into watching a show from about a decade ago on HBO that was called “The Wire.”
This program demonstrates how pernicious and how concerted the effort to redefine morals has been. The program is in many ways excellent, though riddled with violence and gratuitous sexuality including full on nude scenes. The writing, storylines, locations, and acting are all very good. The character development is extremely strong. That’s what sucks you in.
But I’ve turned my back on it, as I’m not entirely certain the program wasn’t created simply, and primarily, as a vehicle to advance the sexular pagan agenda, and specifically, that which was leftist holy grail at the time it was created (2002), pseudo-sodo-marriage. Now, seeing as it involves the drug trade in the Baltimore projects, and all the associated police and civil activity, it seems passing strange to me that two very prime characters in the program, one cop and one hood, would be cast as being “homosexual.” The street hood character is especially egregious, as they really go over the top trying to normalize his perversion. Of course they chose an extremely charismatic actor for the role, and gave him a choice role as a “Robin Hood” of the ghetto, stealing from drug dealers and handing out the proceeds to needy families. Then there is the cop, a female, who happens to be the only non-morally compromised cop on the show.
Furthermore, all the married people commit adultery, they drink to excess, they steal, they do all kinds of nefarious things, but not the two gay characters. In all their actions in and out of their personal relationships, they are routinely set up as the most savvy, the most honest, the most committed, and the most moral of all the program’s characters.
I find it difficult to imagine any of this was an accident. This was a deliberate bit of socio-political agitprop, part of that massive wave of charismatic homosexual characters that came bursting on the scene as the 90s gave way to the 00s and which was tied in, quite carefully and deliberately, with the overarching “gay agenda.” Shows like this, with top-notch writing and talent, helped convinced millions of people that sodomy is perfectly natural and normal (interestingly, in the many prison scenes, there has never been a rape committed, even though such rape is epidemic), and that it would of course, as a matter of natural reason, to deny such caring, virtuous people of their “rights” to enjoy “happiness” as they can find it.
Of course, this is a complete inversion of the truth, and entirely extraneous to the program’s storyline. There was absolutely no need in the program’s story arc for these characters to be aficionados of these sins. This was simply an egregious bit of agitprop foisted on unwary souls seeking a little bit of entertainment (and also, surely, serving in that most vital of roles for the leftist, virtue signaling to all the other little leftists out there that the shows creators, writers, directors, producers, etc., are members of the good and holy tribe of leftists). It’s also the number one reason why I unplugged from TV in the first place, and helps remind me why I find my enthusiasm for college football always waning by the latter parts of the season, beat down as I am by the inescapable by-product of exposing myself to this corrupted medium.
Father Wolfe was always right. Get a shotgun, and blow several holes through your TV screen. It’s just not worth it.
As for Disney, we bought all their old movies years ago, but we almost never watch them anymore. Some of my older girls went through Disney princess stage when they were younger, as my wife and I hadn’t quite figured things out by that time, but our younger kids (and my wife and I) have largely been spared that. The kids have very little interest in watching anything Disney anymore, not that my wife and I would be opposed, in principle to their viewing some of their classic animated movies from the 40s and 50s.
