This is one occasion where I am glad someone has too much time on their hands, considering the hours and hours it took to go through not only all those Donald Duck cartoons, but tapes of Glenn Beck broadcasts.
And you are right: Disney attorneys are probably meeting this very minute to have this taken down. I guess their best defense would be they don’t want their cartoon brand to be sullied by the likes of Glenn Beck.
Actually, I know several of those ducks, I mean guys, acting the same way as Donald, and not yet woken up and shot their TV or radio.
But things are changing; if you had visited “Little Green Footballs” two years ago and made a ‘leftie’ remark, you would have been come close to being banned, but now the radical right membership has seriously mellowed there. Beck and Rush are enemies there now… unbelievable.
Beck has an audience. It is very dedicated, and gives him good ratings numbers. But it is a small audience, all of which are extremists… very noisy extremists. But a small audience at that… maybe we should just ignore the worst cases, talk to the reasonably confused cases, and watch the whole thing fade away. Maybe some of them might start shooting their TVs and radios as they wake up.
