According to Just the News, in The American Dream and Other Fairy Tails Abigail Disney criticizes her relatives for profiting off of stereotypes and what she believes to be the antiquated political views of her great uncle Walt.
Speaking about the documentary in a podcast interview, Disney discussed the presence of racial stereotypes in the company’s earlier films.
“They weren’t shy about delving into the stereotypes if it served them,” she said. She specifically cited racial references in Dumbo, The Three Little Pigs, and Song of the South.
“When they made Song of the South, people from the NAACP came to the studio and they said, ‘Please don’t do it this way. Please talk to us,'” but the company produced the film without their input, she added.
She also discussed Walt’s political views, saying he “bordered on rabid fascism.”
Podcast host Marc Maron agreed, saying “In some enclosed way, Disney is an American fascist fantasy.”
“Well, yeah, that’s what it is — and it isn’t,” she replied. “They were men of their time, but that’s not an excuse… they knew.”
The company has developed into a constant bastion of leftist politics, and has been mired in controversy for the last couple of years over what has been perceived as woke management decisions.
The entertainment giant has announced that an upcoming show will feature a drag queen, while several movies and shows in the last year have made a point to include homosexual relationships and even released a show where the main character is the daughter of the Antichrist.
Abigail Disney has come out against conservative politics before, attacking the group after a video of the company’s corporate leaders discussing the “not-so-secret” gay agenda was leaked.
“This ‘anti-woke’ Right wing nonsense is unsupported by a large majority of Americans. In fact most Americans are offended by it and wish it would just go away,” she said.
