Thanks for speaking for the dead. Do you do any other magic tricks?

Meanwhile, companies like Home Depot and Starbuck's, also targetted by uptight, thought-policing groups like OMM, are enjoying terrific stock highs. Penny's is struggling, but that's just business. Disney just announced a string of upcoming new Star Wars movies, so they just guaranteed themselves another billion dollars to stuff their mattresses with.

Normal and decent people have no problem with people who are different from them. You have no cause to hate people who have never wronged you.

What killed Ward's? Gay spokes people also?

NO one shops at department stores anymore, Cletus. the shopping habits have changed and most folks shop on line, like me. I haven't walked into a department store in a year. Even Target is only good for paper towels and soap. Most brick and mortar places are dying in droves, unless it is something needed immediately, like Lowe's or Home Depot.

For one, they probably did NOT keep lying and using false names, however.

Hahaha! I'm sure they'll be really upset about that. I live in Los Angeles and go to Disneyland quite frequently and let me tell you something I WISH more people would refuse to go to that park. Do you have any idea how crowded it is there? And I usually pull my kid out of school in the middle of the week to go because that's when it's the least crowded and you will still wait at least 30 to 45 minutes to get on each ride. The few times I've been to Disney World it's the same story.

I have several friends and family members who work for Disney, from the parks to the stores, to the studios, to web developers. So you refuse to go???? You refuse to buy their products??? You refuse to watch their movies???? Booohoooo. I'm sure you'll make a dent in their profits. LOL!

You're going to have to avoid all Disney-owned media, including (but not limited to) ABC, ESPN, Lifetime, A&E, Muppets, Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm.
Did you want a list of OTHER pro-gay companies for you to boycott? There are MANY.
Yup yup. Also he'd have to avoid any Marvel comics / movies and Star Wars!

I have news for you buddy. Walt Disney would roll over in his grave if he knew Blacks, Asians and Jews were allowed in the park too. He was a giant racist.

Seriously? You think homophobes can shut down Disney? Where do you live Lala land? People take vacations and come from all over the world just to go to Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Not to mention the cruises.

They are dying on the vine because they cancelled sales and coupons. It has nothing to do with the "gay" thing. I would imagine that their customer base has no idea about the gay hoopla. They need coupons and gimmicks to get by, this is pretty much how most retailers do business.
Yup it was their weird repricing strategy that everyone hated.

Every time I read the comments here, I have less sympathy for when your great Christian county will bite the big one. And given the hate, the guns, the politics and the greed ... it shouldn't be long now.
It's those of us who are stuck living with those crazy nutjobs you should have sympathy for. I have a child. Seriously one of these days I'll move to Australia.

Ironically, all this chat about Disneyland is making pop ads SCREAM all over this Topix page. Now, really, who would you rather spend a day at Disney with? A bunch of gay folks who LOVE Disney and are almost leaping for joy at being there, or a bunch of tight ass poops who cannot keep their self righteous noses out of other people's crotches and think THEY can rule the world with their silly little boycotts?

I've BEEN to several Gay Days at Disneyland, and Knott's Berry Farm, and Six Flags and every time has been so much fun my face hurt from smiling at the end of the day. All you see are smiles and laughing.

Nope, I accidentally typed the "Post Comment" code into the body of the comment box and didn't notice and it got left in. Happy now?

Of COURSE you are disappointed. You are so HOT to get into the swing of it all, aren't you?

Sorry, tool, it ain't that easy. You gotta be BORN into it, which your vulgar curiosity makes me wonder just what is your INTEREST?

I'm bored now and am going to go use the day for something more interesting than watching you walk on the wild side and chat up gays all day.

If you REALLY were as adverse to gays as you claim, you would have NOTHING to do with this site.

Walt Disney was a product of his generation. He was no more or less prejudiced than anyone else of that era.

And if you want to discuss anti-semitism, here's a little excerpt from the Washington Post regarding Ford and GM:

Although Ford later renounced his antisemitic writings, he remained an admirer of Nazi Germany and sought to keep America out of the coming war. In July 1938, four months after the German annexation of Austria, he accepted the highest medal that Nazi Germany could bestow on a foreigner, the Grand Cross of the German Eagle. The following month, a senior executive for General Motors, James Mooney, received a similar medal for his "distinguished service to the Reich."

And here is a quote from L.A. Times author Neal Gabler:

'Disney came by those enemies honestly when his animators staged a strike in 1941 complaining of paternalism and low wages and Walt responded by hustling the supposed union ringleaders off the lot and firing other union members to quash their organizing. Even after the four-month-long strike was settled -- under duress by the federal government -- the wounds did not heal. Disney would feel betrayed for the rest of his life by what he saw as ungrateful employees. The aggrieved employees got their own measure of revenge by portraying Walt thereafter in the least flattering light. Most of what we hear about Disney as a racist or anti-Semite was circulated by animators who had struck in 1941. I know, because several of them made the same charges to me when I was working on my biography of Disney'.

Have some self-respect and do some research before you open your pie-hole.

I think "One Million Moms" actually consists of about 11 people.

The anti-gay hate group, the "Family Research Council" only has 9 (NINE !) members.

From what I have read it's closer to about 40,000, but that is a FAR cry from a million.

I doubt any claims as to the number of members can be independently verified.
