As usual, I was wrong:
Disney has decided that “The Muppet Show” — featuring Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear and Miss Piggy — contains “offensive content” and can now be seen only on an adult account.
When viewers open the streaming service, which made five series available last Friday, viewers are greeted with the disclaimer: “This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now,” the Daily Mail reported.
“Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together. Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe,” the statement says.
Incredible. But it does include all the usual Leftist cant about “diversity” and “inclusion.”
Leftists run Disney today. The company’s founder, a shy, humble, and thoroughly decent man who never had a harsh word for anyone, would not believe what has become of his firm. More than a half century since his passing, Disney has become a fount of anti-American, anti-Christian, racist and victimist sentiments.
Apparently the Leftists at Disney’s helm today are offended by the Muppet Show’s uses of cultural caricatures. They’d condemn me for noting that many members of the nationalities and cultures caricatured actually conform to those stereotypes. Stereotypes, after all, don’t spring from the void fully formed; they arise because millions of people fit them. Moreover, it’s from caricatures and stereotypes that a huge amount of entertainment – especially comedy – is drawn. That’s the case in every country on Earth, not just in America.
But Leftists have no problem caricaturing whites and Christians as narrow-minded bigots, pigheaded and provincial in all things. That’s perfectly acceptable by their rules. We don’t possess the all-important Certified Victim Group credential. Never mind that there’s never been a less bigoted, more tolerant or accepting society than the 70% white United States of America. Leftists are uninterested in facts that impede their path to totalitarian power.
- Blacks assault whites eight times as often as whites assault blacks? That’s irrelevant, you racist.
- Hispanic and Muslim immigrants – many of them here illegally – are setting up exclaves within America’s borders? That’s their “right” as oppressed peoples.
- Feminist, homosexual, and transgender activists are imposing thought control on American corporations through their “human resources” departments? Look, a squirrel!
Whites are supposed to just grin and bear it. Far too many of us do. But if one of us should dare to note behavior, preferences, and accents characteristic of various demographic cohorts? Burn him at the stake!
There are days I wish I’d made a habit of saving my hate mail. Especially the hate mail I got for this column, or this one, or this one. It helped to complete the opening of my eyes. They will never again be closed to the Left’s ravening hatred of everything American…of everything in which earlier generations of Americans took pride, or found value, instruction, or entertainment.
The Left must be destroyed. Not merely forced out of all positions of authority or influence; destroyed. It must become so utterly unacceptable to hold Leftist sentiments of any variety that anyone who’s expressed them where decent Americans could hear will be forever after unemployable, barred from all decent society, and condemned to ostracism. May their lives be nasty, poor, brutal, and short.
Yes, I do know what I’m advocating. Yes, I’m perfectly serious about it in every respect. No other measure will halt America’s descent into madness, much less reverse it. Besides, isn’t it what they’re trying to do to us?
