MEXICA MOVEMENT LAUNCHES DISNEY BOYCOTT

by John Q Public Friday, Jul. 14, 2006 at 5:49 PM

Disney’s white supremacist radio talk show hosts incite a bomb threat against children and promote smallpox genocide against Indigenous People.

MEXICA MOVEMENT LAUN...

HOLLYWOOD -- Underneath a Disney marquee promoting “pirates”, The Mexica Movement, an Indigenous Rights Educational Organization, called for an immediate international boycott against The Walt Disney Company and all of its holdings. The announcement was made in front of Disney’s El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard before local media (including a Fox affiliate from Hong Kong which later broadcast the story across China).

The Mexica Movement is launching this boycott because Disney employs talk show hosts PAUL HARVEY and DOUG MCINTYRE, who have spread the Minutemen/SOS white supremacist agenda against the Mexican and Central American communities in the United States. (Mexican and “Central American” descent people are in their vast majority an Indigenous people, both Full-blood and Mixed-blood).

Doug McIntyre has agitated a bomb threat against school children in Los Angeles, and Paul Harvey has boasted of European genocide against Indigenous People. Both have used their Disney-ABC employment to commit these white supremacist crimes.

Walt Disney Company has failed to reprimand or discipline either talk show host.




McIntyre’s Bomb

White supremacist rhetoric took a violent step forward during KABC radio host Doug McIntyre’s daily tirades against Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School when a bomb threat was called in against the school. The bomb threat initiated a wave of terror against the school’s children and their families.

See IndyMedia link:
http://la.indymedia.org/news/2006/06/162705.php

As if to add insult to injury, the bomb threat was called in after the Minuteman Project had already threatened to picket outside of the Los Angeles school’s playground, provoking a siege mentality “reminiscent of Selma, Alabama during the Civil Rights Movement”, according to the school’s principal. The Minutemen had accused the school of harboring “illegals”, “anchor babies” and “criminals.” Academia Semillas del Pueblo principal, Marcos Aguilar, explained that the charter school was exactly that—a school for children.

Phone calls to Doug McIntyre’s KABC radio show (“McIntyre In The Morning”) were boiling hot with white supremacist hatred towards the school’s children and its principal. Many callers demanded the school be shut down for teaching the children the indigenous Nahuatl language and for learning how to use an “Aztec abacus.” One caller gleefully suggested that the children all be deported to Mexico (regardless of citizenship) and that the principal be detained at Guantanamo Bay “along with the other terrorists.”

Immediately after the bomb threat and the white-hot rage incited by his show, radio terrorist Doug McIntyre offered a mere $1,000 reward to anyone who could offer information on the person calling in the bomb threat. This transparent attempt to cover the tracks of his own hate speech was recognized for what it was: an attempt to deflect the rightful blame away from himself. McIntyre all the while continued his daily rants against the school, its principal, and its children, sending a clear message that the bomb threat was of no concern to him.

Meanwhile, Doug McIntyre’s web site continues to be saturated with rants against the charter school and personal attacks against its principal.

Paul Harvey’s Hate

Prior to the bomb threat, beloved radio talk show host Paul Harvey delivered one of the most candid performances of his career when he declared that he supported the genocide of “Native Americans” through the use of smallpox biological warfare, “because we Americans are not made of sugar candy.”

Harvey boasted that “we Americans once elbowed our way onto this continent” and that “we used whatever weapon we could get our hands on.” Without the slightest indication of shame, Harvey further declared, “and yes, we greased the skids with the sweat of slave labor!”

Here is the full text of Harvey’s June 25, 2005 radio show:
http://www.mexica-movement.org/ENTERHERETEXTONLY.htm#harvey

As if to reward his defense of genocide and slavery, Disney recently inked a $100 million contract deal for Paul Harvey to continue his radio program.




Death Threats Against Mexicans

Harvey and McIntyre have shown themselves to be spokesmen for the Minuteman Project, Save Our State (SOS), and other white supremacists who want to make America a whites-only nation, an English-only nation, and a fascist police state. This hate radio has been extremely profitable for Disney and for all the white supremacists who benefit from it. Disney’s ABC hate radio is the view of the white supremacists who have incited death threats against the Mayor of Los Angeles and the Lt. Governor of California, both of whom are of Mexican descent.




Disney’s Criminal Negligence

Over the years, Walt Disney Company has displayed a pattern of white supremacy and bigotry against Jews, African-descent people, gays, and Mexicans/”Central Americans/Native Americans.” (Walt Disney himself was notoriously anti-semitic.)

Today, Disney continues its tradition of white supremacy as it thus far failed to reprimand Doug Mcintyre or Paul Harvey for their shocking on-air hate speech. Disney’s absence of censure, reprimand, or firing of these two radio terrorists can only be interpreted as willful negligence, or outright approval of their messages. It is this failure to take responsible action that the Mexica Movement has initiated a boycott campaign, in order to counter Disney’s campaign of terror against our community.




Mexica Movement Kills $20 Million Disney Movie

This is not the first time that the Mexica Movement has confronted Disney on its racism. In 2001, the Movement carried on a year-long picket protest and boycott against the company and its proposed movie “Zapata.”

See link for Mexica Movement’s last Disney boycott:
http://www.mexica-movement.org/timexihcah/DISNEYPX.htm

The movie was slated to star Antonio Banderas (a European-Spaniard) dressed in “brownface”, playing Mexican Revolution hero Emiliano Zapata, an indigenous Nahuatl-speaking freedom fighter. The Mexica Movement contacted Disney and made clear that it regarded the casting of Banderas to be a direct insult to the Mexican people. Disney balked.

One year later, after the bad public relations accumulated against the film (due to the boycott), Disney relented on the movie. A $20 million movie project was scrapped. The Mexica Movement boycott had been successful.




The New Boycott Against Disney

The Mexica Movement is calling all people of conscience to support the new boycott against Disney and its radio terrorists, Doug McIntyre and Paul Harvey.

The group has officially launched the first of its three-phase boycott:
1) Announce the boycott for one month and contact Disney.
2) Collect signatures (for 2 months) for an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) formal complaint against Disney-ABC, demanding its radio license be revoked and the company fined.
3) Initiate picket protests in mid-November against several prominent Disney venues.

In front of local media and supporters, The Mexica Movement released the following call-to-action during its press conference outside the El Capitan theater in Hollywood:

“WE NEED YOUR HELP TO LAUNCH PICKETS OF DISNEYLAND, EL CAPITAN THEATER, DISNEY STUDIOS, ABC RADIO, and ABC TELEVISION. Please call us if you are in the Southern California area so that we can call you when we are ready to start the pickets. The pickets will be on Friday nights, Saturdays 12 P.M. to 6 P.M. Sundays 3 P.M. to 6 P.M. Call us at 323/ 981-0352 with your name and telephone number and the days that you are available to join in the pickets.

BOYCOTT ALL DISNEY AMUSEMENT PARKS, PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND MEDIA OUTLETS.”



Mexica Movement Contacts Disney

The Mexica Movement has contacted Walt Disney Company’s Public Relations Director Karen Hobson (818-560-1000) making the following statement:

“If Doug McIntyre continues to use white supremacist code words on the radio against the Mexican and Central American communities, code words that incite any further bomb threats or acts of violence against our community or the Mexica Movement members, we will hold the Walt Disney Company itself fully responsible for any of these violent acts incited by Doug McIntyre or Paul Harvey.”

The last Mexica Movement boycott against Disney in 2001 ended in the successful termination of a $20 million Disney movie project.

This time, it seems Disney’s “racist rat” has once again stepped into a mouse trap of its own making: bomb threats against children and the celebration of White Supremacist genocide.



Full text of Mexica Movement press conference at El Capitan Therater on Hollywood Boulevard July 12, 2006:

"We are the the Mexica Movement. We would like to make a statement against DISNEY’S SUPPORT AND PROMOTION OF WHITE SUPREMACIST HATE RADIO Mexica Movement 323/ 981-0352 www.mexica-movement.org

Hate radio has been spreading the agenda of the Minutemen and other white supremacists all across the country. Two of the white supremacists are Paul Harvey and Doug McIntyre of Disney’s ABC radio. Is white supremacy a Disney family value? Disney has a long history of bigotry against Jews, Blacks, and Mexicans. This is a documented history going back to Walt Disney himself.

Today Disney must be held accountable for supporting racist crimes that are threatening our Mexican and “Central American” communities, along with Native American communities. Disney’s ABC Radio employment of overt and covert white supremacist personalities like Paul Harvey and Doug McIntyre are examples of ongoing support for white supremacy. Disney has hired racist agitators like talkshow hosts Harvey and McIntyre for ratings that increase their profits, while at the same time supporting the agenda of white supremacy.

Harvey and McIntyre are spokesmen for the Minutemen and other white supremacists who want to make America a white-only nation, and English-only nation, and a fascist state. Hate radio is profitable for Disney and these white supremacists. Hate radio is white supremacist radio that has incited racist death threats against the Mayor of Los Angeles and the Lt. Governor of California who are both of Mexican descent.

Disney has to be held accountable for these hate crimes of the public airwaves, since they have refused to hold their white supremacists employees accountable for their hate speech which has been inciting violence against the Mexican and “Central American” people, who are a majority Indigenous people, a non-European people. McIntyre’s racist attacks against the Mexican and “Central American” community do not stop with those of us who he calls “illegals”. He has attacked those of us who have been here for multiple generations or who are part of the original inhabitants of this continent who have been here for thousands of years.

In May he launched racist attacks against a Los Angeles charter school that focuses on Indigenous heritage for Indigenous people. His ABC radio rants incited bomb threats against the school and the children of that school. Racist calls and death threats were made against the children and the administrators of the school. He has incited racist hate against our community.

McIntyre once stated on his radio show that it was good that Whites attacked and killed Native peoples for their land. Paul Harvey has made similar white supremacist statements. He said, without apology or remorse: “Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and across this continent by giving smallpox-infected blankets to Native Americans. That was biological warfare. And we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land from whomever. And we grew prosperous. And yes, we greased the skids with the sweat of slaves. So it goes with most great nation-states” He said this on June 24, 2005 to over 1000 radio stations.

What are the standards of Disney and its ABC properties? Is the equality of our humanity somehow in doubt by Disney? Would they allow such comments against the Jewish community? We of the Mexica Movement, of the Mexican and “Central American” community, of the Indigenous people of this continent, are initiating a campaign that will boycott all Disney products, media outlets, services, and their amusement parks.

In August we will initiate a petition of complaint to the FCC against ABC radios promotion of hate, for their inciting violence against our communities, and for spreading the white supremacist agenda. In November we will then initiate a series of pickets against Disneyland, ABC television, ABC radio, El Capitan Theater, Disney Stores, and other businesses of Disney. We will be taking this campaign internationally through the Internet.

We invite all people of all communities to help in this fight against Disney and its white supremacists of the radio airwaves. Today we initiate the boycott. The longer it takes Disney do the right thing, the longer our community’s resentment will grow, the longer the resentment of all communities will grow. We hope to get all nations and all communities to support the boycott, petition, and pickets. We ask all people of all races to support the people of Mexican, Central American, and Native American descent as we confront Disney and its ABC radio of white supremacy."
