The Patriot Post® · Disney Thanks Communists Committing Genocide
Few American companies are as “woke” as Disney. It has long held “Gay Days at Disney World” each June and it has begun advancing “LGBT” characters in its movies at a more frequent and deliberate pace. Disney princesses have condemned Disney princess stories for their messages about women. The company will literally box-check for minorities when making movies, and it’s putting disclaimers ahead of its previous “triggering” works — the ones that weren’t sent down the memory hole entirely.
But when it comes to actual violations of human rights, including genocide, Disney offers worse than nothing.
“The most devastating part of ‘Mulan,’ Disney’s much-anticipated live-action remake of the 1998 animated film, isn’t the story. It’s the credits,” writes Washington Post columnist Isaac Stone Fish of the movie that premiered on Disney+ September 4. After filming much of the movie in China, Fish notes, “In the credits, Disney offers a special thanks to more than a dozen Chinese institutions that helped with the film. These include four Chinese Communist Party propaganda departments in the region of Xinjiang as well as the Public Security Bureau of the city of Turpan in the same region — organizations that are facilitating crimes against humanity.”
That would be the slave labor camps making things like shoes for another infamously “woke” company, Nike. The Public Security Bureau is the subject of U.S. government sanctions due to the camps, and the Uighurs just filed an official complaint with the International Criminal Court.
Fish explains, “More than a million Muslims in Xinjiang, mostly of the Uighur minority, have been imprisoned in concentration camps. Some have been released. Countless numbers have died. Forced sterilization campaigns have caused the birth rate in Xinjiang to plummet roughly 24 percent in 2019 — and ‘imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group’ fits within the legally recognized definition of genocide. Disney, in other words, worked with regions where genocide is occurring, and thanked government departments that are helping to carry it out.”
He recalls Disney’s release of the 1997 movie “Kundun,” which revered the Dalai Lama, irritating China’s communist overlords. Ever since, Disney has been groveling to get back in the good graces of Beijing — all for the cash cow China represents. Upon opening Shanhai Disneyland in 2016, Disney’s Executive Chairman Bob Iger gushed that it was the “greatest opportunity the company has had since Walt Disney himself bought land in Central Florida.” Meanwhile, “Mulan” is perhaps the most shameless example of how China has conquered Hollywood.
One more thing: Did we mention that actress Liu Yifei, who plays Mulan, supported the brutal police crackdown against pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong?
