A random sampling of quotes from SODH
members brings up a very strong bitter tone:
And one that seems based more on emotion than logic. Some of these quotes are disturbing once you ponder how many people must actually take this stuff seriously...
I hate seeing classic stories being transformed into mushy spin-offs for the sake of profits. Instead of teaching kids about Greek mythology, Disney gives us "Hercules"... Instead of reinforcing kids' knowledge of American history, we get
"Pocahontas." Need I say more?
The neat thing about vague, emotional movements that are logically contradictory yet united emotionally due to a questionable ideology or goal, is that you can use different arguments from different ends of the movement to cancel each other out. This poster is unwittingly providing an argument against those who claim the Disney corporation is evil for seeking eternal copyright to be recognized as a natural property right. The fact that copyright holders today can protect their works from being butchered into an insipid kiddie movie doesn't seem quite so bad anymore.
THERE IS NO WAY POSSIBLE TO DESCRIBE MY HATRED OF DISNEY. WALT DISNEY WAS A BIGOTED
BASTARD. HE SUPPORTED NAZI GERMANY.
Wow. This poster's charges are rather brutal. Let's dissect this one, shall we. First, the "bastard" part, we find refuted here. As for the charges of supporting Nazi Germany (I shall assume the poster is referring strictly to moral support, as an up-and-coming cartoonist would be hard-pressed to financially support a large industrial nation on the brink of war), the poster generously declines to provide any support for his or her (or its, for that matter) claim. Perhaps said poster has confused Disney with Lindbergh, who called Hitler a "great man" after seeing the totalitarian state and imagining that his dead first child would have been safer there. Lindbergh aside, I'd be amazed if anyone can find a reputable source with such dirt on Disney. For now, however, there is a possible way to describe the poster's hatred for Disney: unsubstantiated.
Incidentally, the sole "essay" available on the SODH site refers to Disney himself in a generally positive light, blaming Walt's death and the new management for the current alleged decay of the Disney corporation. By combining these sentiments with the above, we arrive at the unspoken statement, "Walt Disney was an evil jerk, and the Disney corporation is evil because he's not running it anymore."
Apparently, ideological coherency is the glue that does not bind SODH together.
Disneyland...we'd feel tainted if we so much as set foot in the place!!
Good for them. I'd probably feel tainted after setting foot in Chernobyl, but to each his own, I guess.
What the hell is Goofy? Is he dog or human? If he's a dog, why can't my dog drive a car? If he's human, how come i don't have a tail?
- Goofy is an aptly named character, since the word "goofy" means "silly" or "ridiculous".
- The poster is obviously promoting species discrimination by reinforcing the false human/dog dichotomy that Goofy so gracefully transcends.
- Either the poster's dog is of below-average intelligence, or the poster is of below-dog intelligence, being completely unable to distinguish fantasy from reality.
- Goofy possesses a tail due to horrible mutations caused by setting foot on the tainted ground of Disney World (or Chernobyl; historians disagree on the exact location to this day).
The Mouse must Die
Whoa, there, buddy. Plotting the assasination of a cartoon character probably isn't exactly a sign of mental stability...
If they ever make a DisneyLand over here in Australia, I will do all night protests outside it
And thus become known as "that crazy person who hangs around the parking lots at night".
It looks like this "Society of Disney Haters", like so many other hate groups today, is making unsubstantiated claims and using them to justify the elimination of a group they personally dislike and irrationally fear, while pretending moral superiority as they cling to their irrational, dogmatic views.
