Leader of the proletariat


Ho! There, Comrades.

Driftglass joins the parade
The DocuDogma (tm driftglass) meltdown continues.

Is it fair and factual to depict Mickey as the founder of one of the most infamously (or infa-mousely) oppressive regimes of the 20th Century? As one of modern history’s greatest villains, along with Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, and anyone who asks hard questions of the Dear Leader?

No, of course it isn’t.

But since Disney has decided to throw its corporate weight and wallet behind ABCs docudogma (see how its just roooolls off the tongue) and throw facts to the four winds when it comes to reporting on the actual events as they actually happened surrounding one of the most important and thoroughly documented events in the actual history of our actual country…why the fuck shouldn’t I?

After all, as Steve Gilliard points out, lie or not, “in the interest of drama, we can say he was.”

And frankly, when you listen to the Anthem of the Disneyist Party Internationale -- with all of its shouting in unison about “banners” and “marching” and spreading their glorious revolution “around the world” --
Who's the leader of the club
That's made for you and me
K-O-M-R-A-D M-O-U-S-E
Hey! there, Hi! there, Ho! there
You're as welcome as can be
K-O-M-R-A-D M-O-U-S-E

Komrad Mouse!

Komrad Mouse!

Forever let us hold our banner
High! High! High! High!

Come along and sing a song
And join the jamboree!
K-O-M-R-A-D M-O-U-S-E

Vladie Mouse club
We'll have fun
We'll be new faces
High! High! High! High!

We'll do things and
We'll go places
All around the world
We'll go marching

Who's the leader of the club
That's made for you and me
K-O-M-R-A-D M-O-U-S-E
Hey! there, Hi! there, Ho! there
You're as welcome as can be
K-O-M-R-A-D M-O-U-S-E

Komrad Mouse!

Komrad Mouse!!

Forever let us hold our banner
High! High! High! High!

Come along and sing a song
And join the jamboree!
K-O-M-R-A-D M-O-U-S-E
