The second-largest media conglomerate today, with 1997 revenues of $23 billion, is the Walt Disney Company. Its chairman and CEO, Michael Eisner, is a Jew. The Disney empire, headed by a man described by one media analyst as "a control freak," includes several television production companies (Walt Disney Television, Touchstone Television, Buena Vista Television) and cable networks with more than 100 million subscribers altogether.

Disney is not a media company that relies solely upon Mickey Mouse and amusement parks. From the ABC network to ESPN, Disney is an extremely well diversified corporation with so many holdings that they seemingly contradict one another. The same company that brings Peter Jennings and the ABC Family channel into living rooms is also the parent company of Miramax Films, a production unit specializing in violent and risquι features. Disney's roots date back to the early 20th century, however the company truly became the vertically integrated giant it is today after it acquired Capital Cities/ABC in 1995.

The Walt Disney Company is a diversified worldwide entertainment company with operations in four business segments: Media Networks, Parks and Resorts, Studio Entertainment and Consumer Products. The Media Networks segment consists of the Company's television and radio networks, cable/satellite and international broadcast operations, production and distribution of television programming, and Internet operations. Through the Parks and Resorts segment, Walt Disney owns and operates four destination resorts in the United States, Japan and France. Work is underway on a fifth resort, Hong Kong Disneyland, scheduled to open in late 2005 or early 2006. The Studio Entertainment segment produces live-action and animated motion pictures, television animation programs, musical recordings and live stage plays. The Consumer Products segment licenses the Company's characters and other intellectual property to manufacturers, retailers, show promoters and publishers.

The Truth About Disney
FACT: Disney recently bought Capital Cities/ABC for $19 billion. On March 19, ABC aired a "Dana Carvey Show" program which featured jokes and laughter about alcohol abuse and cocaine addiction. The same show had a skit called "Under Five on Comedy Central" in which children made crude jokes and resorted to name-calling. Also on the show, Carvey portrayed George Washington using cocaine and Ben Franklin in bed with another man. The same program had a cartoon skit entitled "The Ambiguously Gay Duo" in which two Superman-style heroes are homosexual lovers and drive a super car shaped like male genitalia. Finally, a "Celibrity Bloopers" spoof featured 17 uses of the F-word (bleeped out, of course; but its intent was clear). What more can our children and families expect from ABC?

FACT: Disney dropped its 17 year-old "Glory and Pagaentry of Christmas" display (one of Disney's few concessions to the fact that Christmas is Christian) near Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and replaced it with "Tropical Santa." Elements of the new festival include, "Santa Claus, tree lighting and caroling with tropical elements such as Caribbean and Jazz renditions of Christmas music, a musical stage show with 'Tropical Santa,' street perfomers for kids, a lighted parade and a holiday sing-a-long and fireworks finale."

The Disney Bloodline


The Suppressors
There are three recent and related events I would like to bring to your attention. The first is the sacking by Disney's Jewish owners of Bob Grant, the only mainstream talk-radio host who, at least occasionally, speaks the truth on racial matters. The second is the cancellation by St. Martin's Press of best-selling author David Irving's latest book. The third is the recent political trial of the Politically Incorrect CP86 group in Holland.
New York City is, for all practical purposes, lost to the United States. It has become a Third World city. Its political structure and institutions are ruled by an elite consisting of a certain Middle Eastern tribe and their White collaborators. Its streets are ruled by often racially unidentifiable non-White gangs. It is an uncivilized and dangerous place to live and work, unless you are wealthy enough to hide behind the security systems and bulletproof glass of the skyscrapers and limousines.
