    malia, the thing you quoted is incorrect. Disney and Lessing were involved in the America First Committee, and they supposedly attended meetings of the German American Bund, a patriotic association which had pro-Nazi leanings prior to WWII, but Disney was not a member of any "American Nazi Party."


    Here is a link, which is basically the same thing word for word, but with "German American Bund" where "Nazi Party" was.

    I'm well aware of that. The anti-Nazi stuff was actually during the war. Meetings held with the official german government prior to them being a US enemy doesn't automatically qualify as him being a nazi.

The first two are useless as tits on a hog because no one truly knows anything unless they were there. Racism is a backward looking conceit applied retroactively from our enlightened Present.
    I actually know all that, and we are in agreement.

    Still, I'm sorry if I offended anyone.
    Right, but you didn't say that. You said:
    "SO! That's what ENTP's look like...I hope they're not all racist, nazi party members like Disney. "

    Ok, you apologized and it's over - I won't press this.

    Correction noted. The Nazi Party thing was something I saw in the documentary I saw a few years ago. But I can take a fair correction. Thanks pure_mercury.

    I do not watch Disney. They are a bunch of perverts. Disney and their subtle subliminal messages. Damn you Disney, Damn You.

    Thumbs up `

    Lol, yeah...and they're doing the same thing with this 3D junk...I mean it was
    cute when it was new but the novelty's kind of worn off. The only movies th-
    ey didn't incredibly butcher with sequels were Aladdin and Mulan.

    A word to the wise.
    I wouldn't call it 'irresponsible' as much as an opinion. You know what they say about opinions, everyone is entitled to them but not necessarily everyone has to agree with each other.

    However after the fact, I think I might do some research. =)
