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.
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:
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!”
Listen to the audio for yourself:
Here is the full text of Harvey’s June 25, 2005 radio show:
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:
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.

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

His ABC radio rants incited bomb threats against the school and the

hate against our community.

In August we will initiate a petition of complaint to the FCC against
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

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
all communities to support the boycott, petition, and pickets. We ask
people of all races to support the people of Mexican, Central American,
