Abigail Disney: Hitler Fan Walt Disney’s Descendant Joins Anti-Israel Boycott

By Debbie Schlussel

**** UPDATE: A friend of mine wrote to tell me that he briefly worked at Disney, and that they call it “Mouseschwitz.” Clearly, for a reason. Several of them. ****

Walt Disney had a well earned reputation as an anti-Semite and Hitler fan (some of his cartoons had anti-Semitic themes, he welcomed Nazi filmmaker (and Hitler paramour) Leni Riefenstahl to Hollywood, and even the Walt Disney Museum acknowledges that he had “difficult relationships” with Jews). And now, his great-niece, multi-millionaire investor, Hillary Clinton supporter, and Huffington Post contributor Abigail Disney, has come full circle. She’s now officially supporting the anti-Semitic boycott of Israel. And she’s donating money to the HAMAS cause. And, as Martin Luther King Jr. said, if you hate Israel, you hate the Jews. It’s that simple.




Hillary Fan Abigail Disney Hates Israel, Jews

Abigail Disney, a descendant of one of the Disney Company founders, said Monday that she is renouncing her share of the family’s profits in the Israeli cosmetics company Ahava, saying it is engaged in the “exploitation of occupied natural resources.”

Disney said she will donate the profits and a sum equal to the worth of her shares to “organizations working to end this illegal exploitation.” Disney, 52, a filmmaker and businesswoman, is the granddaughter of Roy O. Disney, who co-founded The Walt Disney Company with his brother Walt.


Her move, however, has more of a symbolic significance than a financial one. Shamrock Holdings, the family firm in which she is a partner, has invested heavily in Israel, as evidenced by the wide-ranging activity of its Israeli affiliate, Shamrock Israel.

According to various media reports, Shamrock has invested some $400 million in Israeli companies, about a fifth of its capital. Among its holdings is an investment worth at least $12 million in Ahava, which is based in Kibbutz Mitzpe Shalem on the Dead Sea shores, outside Israel’s pre-1967 borders.

“Recent evidence from the Israeli Civil Administration documents that Ahava Dead Sea Laboratories sources mud used in its products from the occupied shores of the Dead Sea, which is in direct contravention to provisions in the Hague Regulations and the Geneva Convention forbidding the exploitation of occupied natural resources,” Disney said in a statement released after informing her family and partners of her decision.

“Because of complicated legal and financial constraints, I am unable to withdraw my investment at this time, but will donate the corpus of the investment as well as the profits accrued to me during the term of my involvement to organizations working to end this illegal exploitation,” she said.

One of Israel’s best known brands overseas, Ahava makes skin care products derived from Dead Sea mud and mineral-based compounds from the Dead Sea. It has stores in Israel, Germany, Hungary, the Philippines and Singapore. . . .

Until two months ago, Disney had been deputy chairman of Shamrock Holdings, which was founded in 1978 by her father Roy E. Disney. The firm bought a 17 percent stake in Ahava in 2008. Ahava representatives said the investment gave them capital to expand overseas, particularly in the United States.

Shamrock also has a stake in the Teva Naot footwear company, which is located in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc south of Jerusalem, and in the Orad company, which makes, among other things, control and monitoring technology for the separation barrier running through the West Bank.

Disney, who has a Ph.D. in English from Columbia University, began making documentary films in 2007. Together with her husband, Pierre Hauser, Disney is co-founder and co-president of the Daphne Foundation, which makes grants to grassroots, community-based organizations working with low-income communities in New York City and describes itself as “progressive and seeking social change.”

I’ll bet her great-uncle Walt is proud of her for carrying on the family’s anti-Semitic tradition.

Who knew that when HAMAS stole the image of Mickey Mouse to promote its jihadist agenda, it wasn’t such a stretch from Mickey’s family business?

Apparently, the Magic Kingdom now includes 72 virgins. Sadly for everyone involved, they all look like Abigail Disney.

Help counteract this flabulous Jew-hater’s moves by buying something from Ahava, today. (If you are a guy, you can buy it for that woman in your life.) (Buying something on Amazon through this link helps support this site, too.)

Debbie -

The IOC has admitted kowtowing to Muslim and Arab countries is more important than instituting a moment of official silence for Israeli athletes slain by Islamic terrorists.

When the comes to the Jews and Israel, from the IOC to Abigail Disney to Salon partnering up with the anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate website Mondoweiss, its open season on the Jews in this world.

Always has been and will always be.

NormanF on July 17, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    You are right except that it won’t always be anti Jews! God will have His Way.

    And, I am now boycotting Disneyland. I financing my niece’s family visit to Disney this fall, NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

    No one should go to Disneyland ever again.

      I only hope that she will grow up and see the truth

Hey thanks for the information yet again DS, now what do we do, boycott ABC? I personally don’t believe in boycott’s, if you boycott anything, what’ll you get, it’ll get you nowhere!

And Norman, your right regarding Mondoweiss and other anti-semitic and Israel-hating websites on cyberspace, they’ll take their opportunity to attack jewish people and the state of Israel no matter what, but don’t say squat about islam and islamofascism in general.

As a kid, I always loved Mickey, Donald, Minnie, Daisy, Huey, Dewie, Louie, Morty, Ferdie, Goofy, Pluto and everyone else. Just hate to think of the Magic Kingdom as a part of dar ul Islam.

It’s just disgusting that what I loved as a kid is a brainchild of not just Judeophobes, but pro-Jihadis as well. Guess I could be thankful for being well past that age. Incidentally, I once read that Disney doesn’t allow any of its employees to have facial hair – and Walt had a Hitler like mustache. It would be interesting to see whether Disney would allow Muslim employees who didn’t shave.

Norman, the greatest travesty is the IOC having those 50 Islamic countries as its members – anyone remember the total meltdown they’d have during the 60s-80s over Apartheid South Africa? Honestly, the Olympics were interesting during the Cold War, even though it was rigged heavily in favor of the over-doped Commies, who don’t win much these days (aside from Russia and China). But after that, it’s a big yawner. But one thing I’m curious – I’d like to see British Muslim organizations stop any memoralization to the victim of the 7/7 attacks in London the day after they won their bid to host the Olympics. It would be funny if the OIC bloc within the IOC (hey, how’s that for irony?) prevented that from happening in the Ummah Kalifate.

Infidel on July 17, 2012 at 1:39 pm

SeanR, the Left today is moving against the Jews and Israel.

Let’s face it: its just its politically correct and trendy to hate the Jews and Israel today.

And the reaction of leftist Jews like Charles Bronfman, Lester Crown, Deborah Lipstadt and Daniel Gordis (Israel Policy Forum gurus) in the face of all this can be summed in one poignant word in their recent letter to Israel’s Prime Minister denouncing the Levy Report: fear. Fear of what the world might think, fear of antagonizing anti-Semitic Arabs and Muslims and fear of being proud Jews!

Yup, the Red-Green alliance also has Jewish fellow travelers and I bet even money Abigail Disney has her Jewish defenders, too.

So what Debbie wrote today is not exactly news to any one who has not been living in a cave.

NormanF on July 17, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Also, fear of hurting BO’s campaign for re-election.

Little Al on July 17, 2012 at 1:49 pm

It’s time people got their shit together. I used to be an “anti-semite”, I believed the conspiracy theory bullshit about the Jews,for a while, anyway, now I support Israel and the Jews, and I go out of my way to buy products from Israel, in addition to products made in America. The last time I was in Dollar General in my town, I needed to buy a kitchen sized trash can, and was pleasantly surprised to find one made in the US, and right beside that, I found a kitchen step stool that was made in Israel. Both products were VERY affordable and made in the right places. I think that the reason we have seen some hard times here in America is because our love of God and our support of the people of Israel has been slipping recently. I would like to see this fixed, and I do the little that I can, but who knows what the future will bring.

It is very bad that she has chosen this course. Walt Disney’s antisemitism really marred an otherwise remarkable career.

I always heard the Disneys were Lebanese that Walt’s middle name was Elias. Now all I can find is an Irish father and a German mother.

Good Afternoon Deb-

Once again, you provide us with intel on your blog that is shrouded by the ‘professional journalists’.

And after viewing the photo of Abigail Disney, I realized that you are trying to tell us this:

Adam ‘Lindsay Zohan’ Sandler’s film “Jack and Jill”, was inspired by his close Hollywood working relationship with Ms. Disney, and the working title of his script was originally, of course… “Abu and Abby”…..

Nick Fury on July 17, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Does anyone have a mailing address for her? I think she could use some Ahava products, and I would be more than happy to send her some.

When I was in the Army, and there were no officers present, we would sing the Mickey Mouse Club song as we were marching.

We had another song we’d also sing when passing the WAC barracks, but again, ONLY if there were no officers looking.

The normal marching song would go like this:

(Command)
Count Cadence, Delayed Cadence, Count Cadence, COUNT!

One!

Two!

Three!

Four!

(Speeding up) One! Two! Three! Four!

(Faster) One, Two, Three, Four, One, Two, Three, Four!

Grrrrrr-ROOOWWL!!!

But, the variation of that march that we used to show off for the WACs went like this:

(Command)
Count Cadence, Delayed Cadence, WAC Cadence, COUNT!

(In a high pitched voice)

One!

Two!

Three!

Four!

(Speeding up) One! Two! Three! Four!

(Faster) One, Two, Three, Four, One, Two, Three, Four!

WHEEEEEE!!!

    Micah:

    According to that newspaper article, Walt Disney wasn’t Jewish, but apparently, he also didn’t evince any hatred towards Jews, and much of the accusations made against him came from fired employees holding a grudge.

    This reminds me of Debbie Schlussel’s previous post, only a few days ago, about the Polish people hating Jews as much as the Nazis did, and the Poles collaborated in the murder of Jews.

    Just yesterday (or was it the day before?), I read a news article where Poles were being honored by the Israeli government for helping save Jews.

    According to the article, Poland had more people listed at Yad Vashem as “Righteous Among The Nations” than any other country.

    The Netherlands was second in that category, and France was third.

    So, I’m admitting I may have been wrong in my initial impression of how history has depicted the Poles.

    And, whether Walt Disney was or wasn’t anti-Jewish (and I don’t believe he was), I still enjoy watching the old Walt Disney movies of my boyhood, and I still relish the memory of my weekend at Disneyland when I got back from Viet Nam.

    JRM: You clearly didn’t read much of the stuff I wrote about the Poles. There were a few thousand Poles that helped Jews out of millions who helped murder them. The reason the infinitesimally small number of Poles who saved Jews were honored is because they were few and far between and rare among most of their countrymen who helped the Nazis murder Jews or murdered them, themselves. Please think critically. DS

    John Robert Mallernee on July 17, 2012 at 5:04 pm

      Most of the Poles were anti-Semitic. The reason more Polish individuals were honored by Israel is because there were more jews to save, and more Jews to kill. Proportionately, Poland had fewer Poles saving Jewish lives than France or Denmark. Holland was no great shakes either, as they had a strong homegrown Nazi contingent in the country.

      Think instead of just believing every bit of bs tossed out by the propagandists.

      Jonathan E. Grant on July 17, 2012 at 5:43 pm

      @DS

      Where do you get you statistics from? I can understand, that you take the Poles listed by Yad Vashem as all Poles, that helped the Jews. Nice “research” and not biased in any way. You don’t count Zegota, ZZW (Jewish organisation, but part of AK), all the Poles, who were murdered helping Jews (often with the hidden Jews – that stories cannot be told and were not reported to Yad Vashem) and all the unnamed Poles, who helped the Jews in many ways even when Poland was the only German NAzi occupied country, where it was punished with death for the helper and the whole family (for example 17000 Jews were saved on Aryan side in Warsaw – as the hidding place needed to be changed from time to time at least 70000 Poles were needed for that action plus all the ones, that looked the other way, the so called bystanders).

      On the other hand you inform about millions of Poles, who helped murder the Jews and you get this number from where exactly? Stories of the surviovors, that could be more biased and spinned the further away from the IIWW we are. You are using stories instead of history.

      The pogroms happened, but watch this:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZCMs4qw4Ds

      I don’t agree with only a few points of this lecture, but I can only tip my hat to all the research, that this man has done. Also it is stated, that you need to be critical about the data and research itself.

      Please watch it to see, where the pogroms happened and what areas they targeted exclusively:
      - The outskirts of Poland, that was in the hand of Soviets at some time (compare it to Kielce pogrom after the war)
      - the places that had a lot of minority parties (e.g. Zionist sympathies). This means little assimilation with Polish citizens – the Jews often didn’t speak Polish at all and they had only 1000 years of shared history in Poland.

      There were no Polish guards in concentration camps – they were from Baltic nations or Slavs East from Poland.

      I’m not an apologist. I use facts from history, not stories.
      I can’t stand the antipolonic hate spewed by some Jews, that keep voicing the same stereotypes over and over again.
      Any Jewish scholar, that dares to have other opinion is marginalised.

      Bart on July 18, 2012 at 4:57 am

        @bart – You are exposing yourself as an anti-semite in your feeble attempt to re-write history.

        Rochelle on July 18, 2012 at 1:54 pm

          @Rochelle:

          I;m exposing myself as concerned citizen. You tend to use the anti-semite card, when you don’t agree with someone.

          Please point me to a critical scholarship, that proves your points. We can sure agree to disagree on some points, but let’s stick to history.

          To write my post I used mostly material from Jewish scholars. Are they antisemitic too.

          I can understand xenophoby, bias and hate, but I don’t tolarate ignorance. You only see the skewed view of Nazi occupied Poland and forget about the Poland before. Statute of Kalish and etc.

          Give me your definition of antisemite. If you say Polish=Antisemite, then you are being silly.

          Bart on July 19, 2012 at 2:42 am

Come to think of it, Denmark should be number one on that list of “Righteous Among the Nations”, for the Danes collectively, as a united people, managed to evacuate almost all of their Jews to Sweden, and the Nazis only managed to round up a few hundred Jews, consisting mostly of those who were bedridden and too ill or elderly to be evacuated.

The story about King Christian and the Danes all wearing the yellow Star of David turns out to be a popular myth.

The truth is, that in Denmark, NOBODY, not even the Jews, wore the yellow Star of David.

The Danes simply weren’t going to allow the Nazis to murder Danish Jews.

John Robert Mallernee on July 17, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    It makes me proud to be biologically (I was adopted) fifty percent Danish, as my biological maternal grandparents, Albertsons, emigrated to Wyoming from Denmark.

    John Robert Mallernee on July 17, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Who believes the LA Times on anything? Disney’s anti-Semitism manifestd itself in many ways, beginning with his comments about “Jew unionists,” and his invitation to Nazi propagandist Leni Reifenstahl to tour his studio. No other studio, Jewish or non-Jewish, would let her set a foot on studio grounds. Not old Walt. This was a propaganda boon back in Nazi Germany.

    You will also note a paucity of Jews in Disney movies while Walt was alive. In fact, many of his movies don’t have a single Jew or even half Jew, like Cary Grant (aka Archibald Leach).

    Directors who worked with him noted his bigotry. One time, Walt said, “As long as I live, no Jew is going to run this studio.” In the 1940s, he got himself allied with a group called The Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals, which was an anti-Communist and anti-Semitic organization. Remember, at that time, there were practically no people more pro-American than the Jewish founders of the movie industry. Many were downright right wing, so why whould he need to join such an organization that was hostile to Jews to show his patriotism?

    Yeah, the guy was an anti-Semitic putz.

    And Max Fleischer’s Popeye and Betty Boop were better cartoons and not so insipid.

      ______________________________

      When I watch a movie, I’m usually completely unaware of who’s Jewish and who isn’t.

      Does a Jew look or sound different than other actors and actresses?

      I’ve personally known a few Jews with so-called “Jewish” names, but in my ignorance, I never knew what a Jewish name was until they themselves pointed it out to me.

      I reckon I just never paid attention.

      (Of course, Attention always wanted more money than I could afford, so that’s why I never paid attention.)

      Unless an individual told me, I never knew whether they were Jewish or not.

      So, was Cary Grant a Jew?

      I didn’t quite understand what you meant.

      I do know that some stars who are Jewish change their names so folks won’t think they’re Jewish, and I don’t quite understand that.

      For instance, I was shocked to learn that Lesley Gore is not her real name (Gore is Scottish), but instead, she has a Jewish name (I don’t remember her real name, but it’s on the Internet).

      Why would she change her name?

      Why does anybody in show business change their name?

      I don’t know.

      Anyway, I’m too busy enjoying the entertainment to worry about who’s who, or who’s doing whatever.

      John Robert Mallernee on July 17, 2012 at 6:32 pm

        With respect to Jewish actors in Walt Disney productions, let us not forget one of the most beloved character actors and comedians of all time, Isaiah Edwin Leopold–better known as Ed Wynn. Nor should we forget his son, Keenan Wynn, a superb actor in his own right, who sometimes played the “heavy” in Disney films.

        As an avid film and business history buff, I have some mixed feelings about Walt Disney. But on balance I would not consider his films or other business enterprises to evince signs of anti-Semitism. Much of the “information” about Walt Disney indicating he was anti-Semitic is actually misinformation derived from rabid anti-Semites, who need to latch onto any anti-Semetic “hero” they can to “endorse” their poisonous movement in an attempt to give themselves some measure of credibility.

        Much of the evidence of Walt Disney’s anti-Semitism is weak. Although it is true that Disney met with filmmaker Leni Riefensthal, most noted for “Triumph of the Will,” so did Hal Roach, and there’s no evidence that Roach had any anti-Semetic predilections. Riefenstahl was actually looking for work in the USA, but Disney did not offer her anything. Nor is there evidence that Riefenstahl had an affair with Hitler, much as this story has been repeated. Rather, Hitler saw Riefenstahl as a talented willing tool who could serve his propagandistic purposes. (Hitler also admired the work of Sergei Eisenstein, one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, and who was of Jewish descent, and, in fact, wanted Riefensthal to make films supporting the Nazi cause with same power that Eisenstein did in his anti-fascist films, such as Battleship Potemkin.)

        According to Diane Disney Miller, one of Walt Dinsey’s daughters, “I do know that [Walt] had great respect for all faiths. Rabbi Edgar Magnin [of Congregation B’nai B’rith/Wilshire Boulevard Temple, who was considered the “Rabbi to the Stars”] refers to him as ‘my friend Walt Disney’ in his book titled 365 Vitamins For the Mind, or something like that. He was the B’nai B’rith Man of the Year for the Beverly Hills Chapter in 1955. My sister dated a Jewish boy for awhile with no objections from either of my parents. Jule and Doris Styne were good friends. Dad had so many very good Jewish friends, going back to his childhood.” (Jule Stein was one of the greatest American composers of show music of all time, including “Gypsy,” “Funny Girl” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” and had written many hits for Frank Sinatra.)

        As for Disney’s anti-Jewish themes, there’s not much there either. In the short “The Opry House” (1929), Mickey Mouse does an Arab-themed dance with the Islamic crescent moon and star in the background, and just afterward is seen dressed and dancing as a Hasidic Jew. See 4:00 and 4:14, respectively at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjxVJwH_89o. The “best” evidence is a misreading of the short film “Der Fuehrer’s Face” (1943), in which Donald is seen in a Nazi uniform, swastikas and all. In the end, though, we find out it’s all a nightmare. A lesser-known short sometimes cited is 1932′s “The Wayward Canary,” in which Mickey is seen using a cigarette lighter with a swastika painted on the side. None of this adds up to much.

        The anti-Semites have most hitched their wagon, however, to the 1933 film, The Three Little Pigs, to make their claim that Walt Disney is one of their own. In this movie, the Wolf is disguised as a Jewish peddler with a large hooked nose, a bushy black beard, and–for those who still haven’t gotten the point yet–a Yiddish accent. At the time of its release, the American Jewish Congress called the character “vile” and “revolting.” Roy E. Disney (Walt’s brother and Abigail E. Disney’s grandfather) responded to those comments with the following: “We have a great many Jewish business associates and friends, and certainly would avoid purposely demeaning the Jews or any other race or nationality. . . It seems to us that this character is no more than many well-known Jewish comedians portray, themselves, in vaudeville, stage, and screen characterizations.” In any event, because this scene created a stir, Disney altered the scene to remove the offending characterization.

        Abigail E. Disney’s political stance is particularly ironic in my opinion because she is the daughter of Roy E. Disney, Walt Disney’s nephew—and Roy E. Disney was certainly no anti-Semite. Abigail owes her entire wealth to the business partnership of Roy E. Disney and Stanley Phillip Gold, who have invested heavily in Israel and have both given generously to many Jewish causes. (Roy E. Disney died in 2009.) Gold today, still runs Shamrock Holdings, Inc., which is owned by the Roy E. Disney family. (Shamrock owns about 4% of Disney stock.) Hopefully, Roy E.’s other children–Tim Disney, Roy Patrick Disney, and Susan Disney Lord–have more sense and decency than Abigail.

        Ralph Adamo on July 29, 2012 at 4:45 am

          This sounds a lot like the old , “Some of my best friends are Jewish, so I can’t be anti-Semitic.” Neal Gabler, in An Empire of Their Own, relates that when longtime Disney employee David Swift resigned to go to work at Columbia Pictures, Disney (imitating a Yiddish accent) said, “Okay, Davy boy. Off you go to work with those Jews. It’s where you belong, with those Jews.” That is almost a perfect definition of anti-Semitism in Hollywood.

I am not a Pole myself but I cannot stand this malicious propaganda of JEG. So even if they saved some many Jews they are still the bad guys? Or even better, because they saved that much Jews, that are anti-semitic…
I think you could prove that the Earth is flat and that’s due to the Polish being anti-semitic…And btw the article was about Walt Disney, wasn’t it?

Youlo on July 17, 2012 at 6:08 pm

” The reason more Polish individuals were honored by Israel is because there were more jews to save, and more Jews to kill” – what??? what is this gibberish? Ah, ok, got it translated, the translation says “I don’t like you because I want your money and you don’t want to give it to me, so I will call you an anti-Semite”…. and maybe Polish individuals were honored because they deserved to be honored fighting against Nazis’ cruelty and terrorism?

Kazik on July 17, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Kazik, you just earned the anti-Semitic Polack of the Day award when you stated that the Jews cooperated with Nazis and Stalin to arrest, torture, and kill patriotic Poles during and after WWII.

If you knew anything, and I know you know very little, the Communist leadership in Polack land was just as anti-Semitic as the average Polack, which is why the Jews had to leave Communist Polack land.

And claiming that the Jews helped the Nazis torture and kill Polacks???? Boy, you are dumber than the average Polack bastard, and that says alot.

Jonathan E. Grant on July 17, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Re the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals, other members were Ronald Reagan, Ayn Rand and Morrie Ryskind. William Randolph Hearst, who publicized the Holocaust much more than the NY Times was also a strong supporter. Given the intensity of the war against Germany in 1944, I think it would be a stretch to say the organization was anti-Semitic, although of course, a few people like Disney did point to the number of Communists who were Jewish.

But while there were clearly anti-Semites among the members, the Statement of Principles did not contain any anti-Semitic statements. Remember that this organization was formed one year after the atrocious Mission to Moscow, the execrable North Star, with the despicable and aptly named Lillian Hellman as the lead writer, and the evil Song of Russia, with commie Paul Jarrico closely involved.

These prominent 1943 movies were certainly not examples of strong anti-Communism in Hollywood. I think it took courage to form this organization in 1944, when FDR was busy giving Eastern and Central Europe to the Communists, and abandoning China as well. As I said, the anti-Semitism of some members, such as Walt Disney was unconscionable, but the organization itself had a worthy purpose. It would take too long to list all the Commie films of 1943 and 1944, when the organization was founded, but a few other examples: Mademoiselle Fifi (1944), First Comes Courage (1943), and Girl Rush (1944) which portrayed evil bankers.

The organization was strongly supported by Louis Mayer and his executive assistant, Ida Koverman who played a heroic role in fighting Communism in Hollywood for many years including the 40s, and indirectly contributed to the later Reagan presidency.

Abigal Hauser nee Disney is a Board member of Roy Disney Family Foundation, The White House Project, the Global Fund for Women, the Fund for the City of New York, and Peace is Loud.

The Global Fund for women, sounds like an excellent idea. She should be using her privileged position to resolve the hideous crimes against females in the Islamic countries. With the instant coverage of ‘on the spot news services’ these hideous acts of barbarism are mounting. Is she addressing honour killings, facial acid throwing disfigurement, slicing off of female noses and ears, stoning of women in public places. Up to the minute news of western journalists being physically gang raped……

Sometimes I wonder whether these philanthropists are using ‘public space, time and political platforms,to forward their own agendas leaving behind the root cause of charity as we know it.

Eyes Wide Open on July 17, 2012 at 8:59 pm

I’m not a big fan of Disney Inc.

This Abigail Disney sounds like a real creep. I would credit Columbia University equally with any family heritage in formulating her anti-Semitic bias.

It’s so absurd!

There is NO Santa Claus on July 17, 2012 at 11:31 pm

Walt Disney would fit in well enough in today’s Hollywood, that is he would just need to disguise his Jew-hatred behind a pro-Palestinian stance rather than a pro-Nazi one, and all would be well.

To some of the commentators above, talking about the Left’s Jew-hatred, frankly I’m amazed how little its roots are appreciated even by pro-Israel supporters. The Jew-hatred of the Left comes from the belief that Jews are greedy crooks, ruthless capitalists and bankers stealing from poor widows and orphans and hording their gold. It is far more than that, there are other reasons, but that’s the main root. This is well-known and recognized in the serious academic literature on left-wing anti-Semitism. It’s something you can verify for yourselves in contact with anti-Semitic Leftists, look at the OWS crowd, blaming the recession on Jewish bankers. You just need to dig beneath the surface and you will always find this anti-Semitic stereotyping from the anti-Israel and thus anti-Jewish Left.

And the wincing response from less bright conservatives, is that yes Jews are capitalists but it’s a good thing. And I just roll my eyes. Whether you are pro or anti-capitalist, Jews are not all capitalists and are no more or less greedy than anybody else. How could that even be possible? Yes plenty Jews are affluent, so? It’s neither here nor there. Most Jews are middle-class, in Israel we are very much working class for the most part. Capitalism will go on, even if there are no Jews left. Remember the Nazis also said the Jews were all greedy bankers and uh Bolsheviks, such is the nature of bigotry – it’s irrational and incoherent in principle.

Disney was definitely NOT Jewish but I’m still wondering about the Lebanese possible whitewash.

Italkit on July 18, 2012 at 4:47 am

Somehow, the Disney company hired Michael Eisner. Roy Disney played a major role in bringing him in.

Procrustes on July 18, 2012 at 7:25 am

@JEG: “And claiming that the Jews helped the Nazis torture and kill Polacks???? Boy, you are dumber than the average Polack bastard, and that says alot.” and you are the masta dumbo because (1) I used the crazy amounts like billions to show how DS is lying to everybody (using the same crazy amounts for the Poles) and (2) yes, there were Jews cooperating with Nazis and communist states/parties. Does this ring a bell -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonderkommando ? The irony in the whole story is that some Jews in Poland disclosed info (to the communist authorities) about some Polish patriots who were against communism and who saved families of these Jews during the WWII. I can give even the names so shut the fuck up and stop saying it’s not true.

Tadek on July 18, 2012 at 7:28 am

@Kazik: don’t bother….it’s pointless, they are either brainless or have been successfully brainwashed, so they will repeat whatever DS is going to announce….They claim to fight anti-Semites but in fact they are anti-everything_not_Jewish and they can discuss with you for hours and hours just lying, denying everything you are giving them as concrete examples. They have a simple rule – whatever they say it’s true (no examples needed….) and whatever you say it’s an anti-Semitic lie (even if you give examples)….It’s like with Alice in Wonderland – normal laws don’t work when talking to them….

    I ain’t never heard of the movie, “DUMB ERNIE”, and I don’t know what the letters “STH” stands for.

    You’re right, though.

    My opinion is worth literally zero.

    I don’t receive one red cent for expressing it.

    Do you get paid for expressing your opinions?

    John Robert Mallernee on July 18, 2012 at 8:40 am

@Jews: so you can spread lies about everything you don’t like, so I can do it too. Listen: The Holocaust thingy never happened, it’s a physical impossibility to kill so many people in the constrained time, including some of them in the crematoria ….Read Leuchter report and other scientists’ statements – it’s a big big lie and not even smart one. That’s why there are so many of you in US, Russia, Argentina, etc. and it was still enough to create a new terroristic country called Israel stealing the lands of the Palestinians….

Arrivederci from Rome, Marica

Marica on July 18, 2012 at 7:51 am

You bloody suckers waste your miserable lives debating on who is a Jew and who is not. And when someone is not (or there is a probability is not), you have to discredit such a person and obviously call it an anti-Semite at every given opportunity. And funny thing is you are not even Semites, you are Khazars so just let the real Semitic nations (like Palestinians who you hate and disgrace) to fight for themselves…

saym00n on July 18, 2012 at 8:01 am

    Yes Saym00n. should we mention Muhammad Amin al-Husayni? He was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, and actively assisted Adolf Hitler after fleeing from Jerusalem. Is that a great Palestinian(not even a people until the 1960′s)we should admire? Walt Disney had a reputation for being an anti-Semite. This is not some accusation that Debbie made up. Even the man’s World War II propaganda cartoons gave Japan a much harder time than Third Reich.

    This was an example of his rather soft approach: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk0tw0P3894

    This short cartoon, despite some token anti-Nazi points, was more likely to evoke empathy for a typical German worker as portrayed by Donald Duck. Rationing, shortages, and long hours were common as well in the United States and the United Kingdom in 1943. There are other cartoons that he produced during World War II, but this particular one really shows that his heart was not in this effort.

    This extended response is not really for your sake saymoon, but for others who are somewhat more evolved than yourself.

    Worry on July 18, 2012 at 11:27 pm

As I read this piece, it seems that while this liberal loser Abigail is a bonified anti-Semite, Disney, the corporation, invests heavily in Israeli companies, whether they are inside the disputed territories (they are NOT occupied) or not. While I would never watch any of this idiot’s “documentaries”, I see no reason to penalize Disney for her actions.

Phil on July 18, 2012 at 11:25 am

Hey, Debbie – I see the “mob-attackers” are out here en masse!
Their combined IQ reaches about room temperature.

Rochelle on July 18, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Debbie:

Your friend is right. Disney as a company TODAY, hosts a very anti-semetic culture. I know that at the Disney offices in Anaheim, they are openly hostile to Jews or people that they percieve to be Jewish, to the point of violence. The City of Anaheim, where Disney is based out of, has a very shady history of hate crimes, anti-semetism, and cover-ups, including by its elected officials and especially by its police department.

Definitley not a mistake. The Walt Disney Company is rotten all the way to the core.

Abigail Disney, your true colors have shown what we knew about you all along.

BOYCOTT DISNEY!

OMG on July 18, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    But what about Michael Eisner, a Jew, who served as Disney CEO during the Nineties?

    Seek on October 31, 2013 at 10:09 pm

Walt Disney certainly took Henry Ford’s counsel as regards to his company. Ford’s main concern, of course, was that Jews not come to control Ford or Disney.

Ford was more than just a garden variety anti-Semite, however. He was really in full agreement with the Nazi program, and may very well have been a participant. We’ll probably never know for certain, but Ford could very well have been guilty of crimes against humanity. Disney and Ford were certainly in communication, and no doubt discussed Jewish “questions”, since Ford was well nigh obsessed with the view that Jews were the bane of mankind.

adam on July 19, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Well, except that Walt Disney was not an anti-Semite because there is not corroborating evidence for it outside of skits on Seth MacFarlane and Seth Green shows. And Israel is a fascist state that spreads terror and has refused diplomacy for decades. This is the kind of terrorism you see when the modern Israeli military fires missiles into Gaza and kills close to ten thousand innocent civilians in reprisal to two IDF soldiers being killed by a rag tag terrorist cell of Hamas.

And of course there are all of the videos throughout the internet showing good old fashioned human loving Jewish settlers stoning children on their way to school, threatening them with guns, breaking into their businesses and stealing all of their goods, creating fraudulent archeological surveys where Palestinians live and then proceeding to uproot and demolish their homes.

If their is a Hell that exists after this life JEWS FROM ISRAEL WILL BE BURNING FOR ETERNITY IN THE DEEPEST CIRCLE OF IT ALONG WITH HITLER AND STALIN.

Scumbag Jewish terrorism supporters! You are BAD, BAD people.

Mikael Rosenkrantz on November 12, 2012 at 3:33 am

The nickname “Mauschwitz” came into being during Michael Eisner’s 30 year tenure as CEO of The Walt Disney Company. He was a miserable person to work under. In case you don’t remember how contentious it was toward the end of Eisner’s tenure, it was particularly miserable for the rank and file. We stopped referring to it as “Mauschwitz” when Robert Iger took over.

The “friend” couldn’t have worked there that long or made many friends if they were not aware of that.
