Auster Grinches the Grinch!

You gotta love Larry Auster.

Seriously, these childrens' shows have been brain-washing our populace like they've been reading from the Leon Trotsky playbook. Think Mary Poppins. It's theme was the neglectfulness of a father too interested in his career, ending with a message that it was a far better use of two pence to feed it to birds than invest it in a bank! And what have our bankers raised on this lesson done with our hard earned savings? Thrown them away providing mortgages to people who couldn't possibly afford them. Ok, I'm stretching it a bit, but from the multi-culturalism of Sesame Street to the extended-family arrangement in Full House, anti-capitalist, anti-traditional-family and generally anti-Western themes run through much of the entertainment aimed at children over the last 50 years. One grand exception was conservative Charles Schulz's Charlie Brown Christmas which triumphed over the crass commercialism of Christmas with a deeply spiritual statement (as opposed to feel-good humanism) unheard of in popular culture of the time.

Say what you want about the ideological undertones in Mary Poppins but admit one thing - Dick van Dyke was the true master of the cockney accent!

Yes - I was sure that on the Dick Van Dyke show he was like House, MD - an English guy playing an American. What a shock to find he was born and raised in the U.S.A. He really pulled the wool over our eyes as that chimney sweep!

Mary Poppins was also highly critical of the mother's outside-the-home interests. Her suffragette activities were depicted as destructive of the family as the father's attitudes.

yes, they did mock her suffragette activism, which seemed to be an attempt to even out the Dad-bashing a bit. And towards the end they even provided a "poor unappreciated Dad" monologue delivered by DvD in his absolutely pitch-perfect cockney accent;) I'm not claiming it was a hallmark of Trotskyite propaganda, but even such a major Disney production delivered a subtly subversive message.
