‘Racist’ Peter Pan Blocked From Children’s Streaming Accounts

The story of the boy who never grew up and the Darling children who joined him on an adventure battling pirates on a magical island, is one of four Disney classics that have been banned from children’s accounts on the company’s streaming platform.

Disney animated favorites Peter Pan, The Aristocats, and Dumbo, along with live-action island adventure, Swiss Family Robinson, were blocked from being viewed by children under seven years old on the company’s streaming platform Disney+.

The classic films have been removed for breaching content advisories that were implemented in October for “negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures.” Disney made the decision to censor the movies after a group of external experts who “represented global audiences” assessed that younger audiences needed to be protected from the portrayal of racial stereotypes.

In 2019, Disney announced that the company’s streaming service Disney+ would “come with a warning about offensive tropes.” Classics like Fantasia, Lady and the Tramp, and The Jungle Book are preceded by an unskippable disclaimer preceding offensive content reads:

“This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”

Disney’s Stories Matter initiative, which views the disclaimers as “an opportunity to spark conversation and open dialogue on history that affects us all,” includes explanations for the advisories and outright ban on content.

According to Disney, 1953’s Peter Pan negatively depicts “Native people in a stereotypical manner,” by repeatedly referring to them as “redskins.” Aristocats was yanked for a Siamese cat that, “sings in poorly accented English voiced by a white actor and plays the piano with chopsticks.”

Swiss Family Robinson was pulled for portraying pirates as “a stereotypical foreign menace,” that appear in “yellow face” or “brown face,” while the crows in 1941’s Dumbo perform musical number that pays “homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations.”

The titles are still available on Disney+ for viewers over the age of seven.

I’m 86 years old and have raised 5 children. Our childhood was one of wonderment with the fantasies named. Today, as adults, we are a well-adjusted family, all Patriotic. Even after the explanation above, I still don’t understand how these productions are bigoted.

How many of us grew up with Peter Pan, Dr. Seuss, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp and so many others, Disney or not, had those movies turn us into bigots, haters, killers, or criminals? I dare say these movies had more of a positive effect than negative. This cancel culture is nothing more than an attempt to show how one group can have power over others. It is doing much more damage than any of these things they are canceling.

When you breed two bulls you don’t get any calves! Transgenders don’t know what or who they are or coming or going so they won’t do much. This all part of getting you thinned out and conditioned to obey the NEW WORLD ORDER. Reducing population to 550 million for worker ants / debt slaves to produce goods for them. Like the A-HOLE said “You will have NOTHING and you will be HAPPY!” Gates going to sell you plant meat or people that looks like meat. Every machine will be silent because of Eco-damage. You will walk because NO oil or gas, cars etc. Welcome to the 10th Century. Glad I don’t have any kids in this mess.

Soon, all you can watch is the dust settle on the screen as nothing cab be watched if it’s not “Woke”. They have everybody including themselves so confused it’s just nothing. That’s the idea to make everybody afraid to do anything as it might offend the “WOKE MORONS” I am offended that your offended by NOTHING. You can’t go back and chance history for the fun of it. GET A LIFE OR GET OFF THE PLANET. F**CK OFF A$$HOLES!
