Disney hiring pedophiles in their top positions . . . Disney as the largest shareholder in a porn channel on cable TV . . . is Disney really a purveyor of wholesome family entertainment?
In their book Disney: the Mouse Betrayed: Greed, Corruption, and Children at Risk, authors Larry and Rochelle Schweizer disclosed Disney as the key partner in a pay-per-view channel which pioneered soft-core pornography. In addition, Disney was exposed with a laundry list of convicted sex offenders it had hired. The mainstream media ignored these allegations, as well as the pervasive scandal of not one, but several high-level Disney executives accused of pedophilia:
- Disney hired convicted pedophile Victor Salva, who confessed in 1988 to five felony counts related to sodomizing a boy he directed in a low-budget film.
- Larry Clark, infamous for his naked photographs of young boys, directed “Kids” (1995) in graphic sex, violence and drug use. Ted Baehr’s Movieguide notes that this child-abusive film was so deviant that Disney distributed it under the Miramax label.
- In February 2007, Disney employee Matthew Wendland was arrested, charged with 51 counts of possessing child porn.
- In April of 2007, three men arrested in a pedophile sting revealed themselves as Disney employees. They planned to have sex with boys and girls, ages 13 and 14.
The witchcraft and sorcery prevalent in many of Disney’s “family” films reveal the values of the corporation, if not ultimately its agenda. Interestingly, Walt Disney himself had an obsession with death, which some sources cite began as a boy when he captured an owl on his family farm, and moments later stomped it to death. Disney allegedly had an ongoing relationship with Anton Levy, founder of the Satanic church. Walt Disney’s early works, including Fantasia, are rife with images of sorcery and demons.
Why then does a company like Disney self-righteously remove Bill Cosby’s statue from its grounds? Evidently it’s not about the deeds done in darkness, but about how much press exposure is given to them, and whether consequently the American public will get outraged enough for there to be an image problem. Years ago, when the news outlet 20/20 was going to run a story exposing Disney’s pedophilia problem, the piece was discarded after pressure from Disney chairman Michael Eisner.
The bright “cute” image Disney puts out for the world should be discerned as to the agenda behind it. As Paul warned, “Satan himself disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). Paul also said to “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them” (Ephesians 5:11).
Many people were dismayed to see Disney celebrating sexual perversion by lighting up the Cinderella Castle in a rainbow. But why? For years, the theme park has held its annual “Coming Out Day.” The website beforeitsnews.com reports that:
“Disney’s propagandistic marketing of gay, lesbian and transgendered picnics, parties, books, videos and the like sends a powerful message, as does its anti-Christian pulpiteering, its Miramax films of incest, sadosexuality, prostitution as well as – until recently – its E! Playboy gateway pornography.”
*At the time of this article’s publication, Disney is once again in the spotlight for questionable ethics, as the New York Times recently reported many veteran employees were let go or forced into early retirement, but not before being ordered to train their replacements–allegedly off-the-boat immigrants.*
Is Disney’s dark side news to you? Does it affect how you will solicit the company in the future?
