Democrats.com - Boycott Disney
email:

Boycott Disney!

Click here to sign the petition!

To: Disney CEO Michael Eisner

We are outraged that you wouldblock the distribution of Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 911 because it criticizes George W. Bush and could lead to his defeat (again) in November.

We understand your right-wing Republican bias: your local AM talk radio stations broadcast Republican propaganda all day long.

We also understand your corrupt motive:you are afraid Gov. Jeb Bush will cancel the lucrative tax breaks Disney gets in Florida.

You are censoring one of the most important filmmakers in America. This is unacceptable in a democracy.

As consumers, we are not powerless. We will protest with our wallets - by boycotting these Disney products until you agree to distribute Fahrenheit 911:

Disney films
Disney theme parks
Disney toys
Disney TV networks


Help us make this boycott so big that
Disney gets the message! Put this

2. I kind of agree...
and despite the fact that I live in Orlando, I have no affiliation with Disney at all.

As I see it, they are stuck in the middle of a no-win situation.
If they distribute the movie, 47% of the electorate is pissed, and threatens boycott. If they don't, the other 47% feels the same way.

I am sure, given this publicity that Moore will find a distribution company more than willing to step in. The film will be seen.

3. I did this yesterday...
It's the hypocrisy that pisses me off...saying that they are 'non-partisan' yet their flagship station WABC has Rush & Hannity on it...either let NO political views on, or ALL...favoring one side over another is censorship...
