I have quite a unique perspective on Television and the general “cult of media” phenomenon – having witnessed both sides of the fence: firstly as a sponge, soaking up all that the entertainment industry had to offer and more recently as somebody quite well informed about media machinations and the subliminal, social engineering agenda of the medium. Even in my trippy state, I was still able to clearly recognise the inconsistencies and levels of “high strangeness” that are apparent in TV’s output. It is often with a sense of relief that I have now largely turned my back on this mind muddling conduit, yet I am still baffled that some people just don’t wish to see… even when directed to that which is obvious. Many will say, “How can there be such a carefully orchestrated mechanism with so many people involved?” It is easy really! Any superficial level of research will reveal the mega-corporate nature of the industry. Gone are the days of numerous varied and diverse companies and organisations within the entertainment/communication world, allowing us the option to choose alternative perspectives on the world around us. Most people who are employed by these power houses will rarely question the true intent of industry.
At one time or another, Disney has had ownership of a dozen Hollywood outlets (including Touchstone Pictures and Miramax Films), numerous newspapers (including The Kansas City Star, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Wilkes Barre Times Leader and The Belleville News-Democrat), a dozen or so assorted publishing houses, a chain of Disneyland resorts, several record companies, roughly 50 TV stations/broadcasters (including ABC and ESPN) and 40-odd radio stations. They have also branched into other areas including: clothing, food, education, and mobile/internet based communication.
Disney has never been shy of franchise takeovers. The incorporation of Pixar and The Marvel Comic’s empire has recently been joined by The Star Wars franchise. There was an immediate media frenzy following the announcement of Star Wars: Episode 7. No doubt this future outing will include such Disney staples as “the lost child looking for their missing parent”, “the band of diverse, stalwart travellers”, “the final confrontation in the enemy’s lair, involving some display of dark magic”… actually, now I think about it, George Lucas already did that! Maybe Lucas wasn’t such a strong proponent of the so called “Hollywood Rebellion” after all…
In the world of alternative research, Disney is far more than just a vast money making empire with superficial undercurrents of perceptual engineering directed at the minds of impressionable youngsters. It is difficult to nail down the specific roots of these darker and altogether sinister claims. However if there is any truth to them, they deserve closer scrutiny. These allegations draw upon Disney’s association with the US Military / Industrial complex, the FBI, CIA, NSA, NASA, and so forth. As a result of endless personal accounts, there are even allegations of Disney’s intricate role in a programme of state sponsored, trauma based mind control.
Some of the former claims can at least be solidly quantified. During the 1940s, The “House of Mouse” became a literal propaganda machine for the ruling structures of the US. “Shortly after the release of Dumbo in October 1941, the US entered World War II. The U.S. Army and Navy Bureau of Aeronautics contracted most of the Disney studio's facilities where the staff created training and instruction films for the military, home-front morale-boosting shorts such as “Der Fuehrer's Face” and the 1943 feature film “Victory through Air Power.” (Wikipedia)
This does seem rather odd considering that it has also been claimed that Walt Disney was sympathetic to certain Nazi doctrines. In the 1930s, he welcomed German filmmaker and Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl to Hollywood to promote her film Olympia. Even after news of Kristallnacht broke in November 1938, Disney did not cancel his invitation to Riefenstahl.
In 1941, the U.S. State Department sent Disney and a group of animators to South America as part of its “Good Neighbour” policy and was subsequently contracted by various arms of the US Government to produce a number of “educational” and “informational” live action and animated films on their behalf, including a collaboration with NASA rocket designer Wernher von Braun: “Man in Space” and “Man and the Moon” in 1955, as well as “Mars and Beyond” in 1957.
“In 1947, Walt Disney testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), where he branded Herbert Sorrell, David Hilberman and William Pomerance, former animators and labour union organizers as Communist agitators. All three men denied the allegations and Sorrell went on to testify before the HUAC in 1946 when insufficient evidence was found to link him to the Communist Party. He also accused the Screen Cartoonists Guild of being a Communist front, and charged that the 1941 strike was part of an organized Communist effort to gain influence in Hollywood.” (Wikipedia) Disney himself was a founding member of the anti-communist group Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals.
The FBI files on Disney make for interesting reading. According to researcher Fritz Springmeier, “Just prior to W.W. II, the FBI recruited Walt Disney. His job was to spy on Hollywood or anything else that looked suspicious. Documents obtained from the Freedom of Information Act, in spite of heavy censoring, clearly show that Walt Disney became a paid Special Correspondent asset of the FBI. He reported to FBI agent E.E. Conroy. In 1954, Walt was promoted to Special Agent in Charge (SAC) which means others reported to him. After "leaving" the CIA, ex-DCI (ex-head) of the CIA William Hedgcock Webster became a lawyer for the Wash. D.C. based firm of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy. In 1993, when news broke about Walt Disney’s FBI membership, ex-CIA head Webster worked with the Disney family to cover up to the public that Walt Disney was an FBI agent. Webster went on TV and had interviews to spread the fabrication that Walt was not connected to the FBI. Why?”
From several quarters, it is additionally suggested that Walt Disney even participated in classified CIA projects (including MK-ULTRA). There are also claims that he was a Freemason. Proof of these two aspects is a little sketchy though. Finally, it’s worth noting that he extensively travelled and spent time with Steven Rockefeller (yes, those Rockefellers!) and Dr Hadley Cantril. Cantril was an expert on perceptual psychology and human behaviour, but is also known to alternative researchers for his involvement with the Princeton Radio Research Project – funded by The Rockefellers and the modus operandi of the infamous “War of the Worlds” radio psy-op.
Given that Walt was the man at the top, it seems entirely plausible that certain beliefs and agendas (that perhaps encapsulate some of the aforementioned aspects) would have filtered their way into the output of the Disney franchise.
There is a lot more significance to this when you consider that Roseanne Barr has all but stated that she believes herself to be a trauma based mind control victim…
I will address this aspect of programmed celebrities and the alleged connections to Disney in part 2.
