|Where Disney Puts It's Pixie
- Disney hired Victor Salva, a convicted child molester, to direct its
movie Powder. When Salva's victim, Nathan Winters, then
20, publicized the hiring, some of the police officers who investigated
the 1987 molestation were incredulous that Salva was working again as
a movie director. "It just blows me away," said Officer Gary
Primavera. "He has serious signs of still being a pedophile."
One Disney official, John Dreyer, refused to respond to Winter's demand
that Disney fire Salva, saying, "What's the point other than you
want to make headlines?"
That's compassion for you. Continuing to be employed with Disney money,
Salva has made "Jeepers Creepers" and "Jeepers Creepers
2" (2004) which he wrote and directed. With his history in mind,
watching the movies with their undercurrents and teen boys is creepy.
- Newsweek reported that in 1996, Disney considered buying Ripe,
a movie about the deflowering of 14-year-old twins. Bad publicity was
all that stopped the deal from being made.
- In 1995, Disney-owned Miramax released the homosexual movie, "Lie
Down With Dogs". Great book, horrible movie. Seems Disney
just wanted to make a "gay" movie to be hip and get in the
gay market. The reviews written about it at Amazon.com
are better than the torture of the film.
- Kids (Miramax) was described by Variety magazine as
"one of the most controversial American movies ever made."
According to Newsweek, "The film follows a number of barely pubescent-looking
boys and girls around New York City as they smoke pot, bait gays, beat
a black man and engage in graphic sex. "Under pressure Miramax
formed an independent company to market and distribute the pornographic
movie." (Daily Variety, 1/27/95; Newsweek, 2/20/95; Wall Street
Journal, 3/30/95; Associated Press, 6/29/95)
- Priest, another Miramax release, depicts five Catholic
priests as perverts and blames their perversion on Church teachings.
One priest is homosexual-as-pervert; a second an adulterer; a third
an alcoholic; a fourth demented; and the fifth just plain mean and vicious.
This was such an alarming and sick movie that the gay newspaper The
Advocate reported it under the heading "Family Alert Issues"
3/10/95, 4/4/95, 4/18/95;
- When Disney's Hollywood Records released an album by the band Sacred
Reich, they sent thousands of marijuana bongs to radio stations
as an advertising ploy to get them to play the record. Yet DIsney claims
a staunch and rabidly anti-drug stance.
- Glen Danzig and his band of the same name was picked and groomed
by Disney to be a kind of Disney-exclusive money making rock machine,
much as today's hand-picked-and-groomed "Boy Bands" ala N'Sync
and Backstreet Boys. Danzig, to hear him tell, is a self-proclaimed
Satanist and sang about suicide, self-mutilation, sex with demons, and
rape. The band once made a video called, "It's Coming Down"
with scenes of sadomasochism, masturbation and genital mutilation. MTV
found it so offensive they refused to air it. Danzig also starred in
a Disney made movie, Prophecy II (it's hysterically bad..if you need
a laff, go rent it). When questioned about this hardcore "talent"
and nefarious past, Disney said Danzig was "harmless, simply misunderstood".
They saw Glen's "message" as behavior as some rock-theater-clowning.
Danzig fans would disagree and so it would appear that Danzig's band
and lifestyle was pretty hard core and serious. Yet there he was making
weenie-ass Disney Movies...so who's scamming who?
Bands signed by Disney owned and funded Hollywood
- Human Waste Product - who sing about sex with the Virgin Mary
while calling Her a "whore".
- NY Loose - whose main theme in their songs is suicide. Suicide
is the 3rd leading cause of death among 15-24 year olds. Wholesome Disney
- Seaweed - whose hit song was called "Drug Free Zone".
The promo literature put out by the company quoted the lead singer as
saying he did "so much cocaine my nose exploded into a bloody mess
and I had to have plastic surgery. That was a pretty good one".
This upset a lot of radio people (and parents) and who knew the age
group who was reading this stuff.
- Death Row Records and Interscope Records was acquired
by Disney in 1997. The main fodder of these two companies is "gangsta
rap", your basic misogynist, violent "black" music ALA
Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre. The Wall Street Journal reported that
the FBI was investigating Death Row Records for gun and drug trafficking,
and money laundering. In spite of this investigation, Disney Boss Michael
Eisner offered Interscope's Tom Whalley a multimillion dollar contract
to take over Hollywood Records. Whalley declined.
- In 1989 Disney became a partner, and the one to own the largest %
of shares in, Viewer's Choice "Hot Choice" - a leader
in Pay-Per-View cable soft porn. Until Disney showed up, Viewer's
Choice had only played action films and comedies. The profits were
decent but Disney wanted better, and decided to launch the "soft
porn" division in 1993. To develop original programming for their
creation, Disney offered porn star Becky LeBeau a $7-figure deal
and share of the profits. She appeared in many films herself and hosted
an all-nude modeling program which showed explicit footage if women,
some as young as 18. Disney also signed the infamous and famous Marilyn
Chambers, a veteran hard core porn star, to an exclusive multi-project
deal a year after she won the "Lifetime Achievement Award"
from the Adult Video Association.
- Viewer's Choice has an exclusive contract with a production company
for a series called, "American Stripper On Tour". The film
crew visits all-nude strip joints around the country.
- Disney owns the largest percentage, as a partner, in the biggest
company in the soft-to-medium porn market.
- Disney owns many of the huge record labels producing the very bands
and topics the "Parental Advisory" label was created for -
bands that glorify rape, drugs, murder, hate, racism, violence against
women, violence, period
- Disney owns many of the huge movie studios producing some of the
most outrageous crap yet to be made. You won't find any mention
of those details as they push their Family Friendly, Pro-Family, Pro-Mom&Dad,
Pro-Happy Safe Healthy Children Agenda though. As one insider said,
"The New Disney will do just about anything to make a buck".
