Default Walt Disney and the Gobs of Money He Gave Jews

There was a big brewhaha when Meryl Streep called Disney, 'sexist, racist, and anti-semitic'---was he anti-Semitic in particular was the focus of this article.

Some excerpts:

"..Hollywood historian Neal Gabler examined the antisemitism charge in his 2006 biography of Disney. “Of the Jews who worked [with Disney], it was hard to find any who thought Walt was an anti-Semite,” Gabler reported."

Joe Grant, who had been an artist, the head of the model department, and the storyman responsible for Dumbo... declared emphatically that Walt was not an anti-Semite. ‘Some of the most influential people at the studio were Jewish,’ Grant recalled, thinking no doubt of himself, production manager Harry Tytle, and Kay Kamen [head of Disney’s merchandising arm], who once quipped that Disney's New York office had more Jews than the Book of Leviticus. Maurice Rapf concurred that Walt was not anti-Semitic; he was just a ‘very conservative guy."

Brode told The Hollywood Reporter that Disney used more Jewish actors “than any other studio of*Hollywood’s golden age, including those run by Jewish movie moguls.”*

Gabler also revealed that Disney “frequently” made unpublicized donations to a variety of Jewish charities, including a Jewish orphanage, a Jewish old age home, Yeshiva College (precursor to Yeshiva University), and the American League for a Free Palestine. The League, better known as the Bergson Group, publicly supported the armed revolt against the British in Palestine by Menachem Begin’s Irgun Zvai Leumi. Disney was embracing not just Zionism, but its most militant wing.."

Giving to Yeshiva? To Irgun Zvai Leumi?

An 'Anti-Semite'? U kiddin'?

The article cont'd:

"..How, then, did the rumors of Disney's alleged anti-Semitism spread so far and wide?*
That’s where Meryl Streep comes in. The “anti-Semitic industry lobbying group” with which Disney was associated was the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals. The group’s statement of principles said nothing about Jews; its declared purpose was to prevent “Communist, Fascist, and other totalitarian-minded groups” from gaining a foothold in Hollywood. Among its members were politically conservative actors such as John Wayne, Clark Gable, and Ginger Rogers. But some of its other members were accused of being privately anti-Semitic, and in general it had a reputation as being reactionary.."

Walt was a Mason who donated to Jews and hired Jews.

Either 'you are the company you keep' or an unfair 'guilt by association'. People can decide for themselves, but the association is 100% there, with tangible proof.
