Walt Disney’s birthplace is a few blocks from my house.
Maybe Micky Mouse will show up.
But not me.
Walt Disney was a right-wing scab and union buster.
In fact, he was an anti-Semitic, homophobic racist.
In 1934 he forced his employees to contribute to defeat Upton Sinclair’s gubernatorial campaign. Sinclair’s campaign slogan was End Poverty in California.
When workers tried to bring a union to Disney’s company, he resisted with strike-breakers and mob thugs.
Disney was an informant against liberals and progressives for J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI.
He was an America Firster and attended Nazi rallies and meetings.
In the Fifties he brought the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities to Hollywood and helped organize the Black List which barred industry employment of progressives and communists.
I think I will skip tonight’s party.
I don’t think he would want me at the house warming anyway.
