Maybe Kansas City Should Stop Celebrating Legacy Of Walt Disney, Too???
Quick debate on a local point of pride despite the fact that the Internets has killed any semblance of historical context . . .
Paste Magazine - Walt the Quasi-Nazi: The Fascist History of Disney is Still Influencing American Life
The article actually takes a fair view of the animator who got his start in East Kansas City . . . Money line on the dude's birthday and a message to his head that is still frozen on ice under Magic Mountain somewhere according to fellow conspiracy theorists:
"Walt Disney is heralded as a utopian, but his personal record and the influence on the Disney Corporation’s tactics paint a picture that is much grimmer than the sunshine, cuddly animals, and quirky characters that are as sewn into the American fabric as hamburgers and apple pie. Simply put, the reality that one person’s utopia is another’s dystopia is simply a part of the American story."
You decide . . .
