This week, Jonathan McIntosh (of Rebellious Pixels) released a new cartoon,”Right Wing Radio Duck,” that remixes dozens of classic Walt Disney cartoons from the 1930s to 1960s. The artistic work is seamless. The video is downright fun to watch. And the underlying message is entirely contemporary. A la Colbert: Keep Fear Alive.
The new video is released under a Creative Commons license, and, according to the artist, this transformative remix “constitutes a fair-use of any copyrighted material as provided for in section 107 of the US copyright law.” Will Disney, a company that exercises enormous power over American copyright law, agree? That remains to be seen.
To Glenn Beck fans who double as OC readers (if we have any), I apologize in advance.

I agree with some things that Beck talks about, but most of the times I have to ask what the hell is he talking about.
Way to emotional for me, crying all the time suck it up man get a hold of yourself.
I agree with Donald though, that was way to much crap to listen to.
Good going Donald.
Apologize? For what? That was both hilarious and true. Most Americans are dumber than sheep and the mad-as-hell-not-gonna-take-it-anymore Glenn Beck loons are a textbook example of this. In the original feature film “Wall Street,” Oliver Stone could just as well have had Gordon Gekko say “Fear is good. Fear works” and the message of the film would’ve still been lost on the unwashed masses.
…if it wasn’t bad enough that Donald fell under Glenn’s sway, now Mickey’s running for office on a clearly Beckian platform..
Check out the remix of Beck’s response by YouTuber ikat381 called “Mickey Mouse Discovers The Government Plan to Attack Glenn Beck by Paying Jonathan McIntosh to Remix Cartoons’.
Lesson to Gleen – Don’t try to go after open culture remixers, they will lampoon you for it!
I agree as much as the next man that Beck is somewhere to the right of Oliver Cromwell in his politics. But I would like to say that calling Americans, “dumb as sheep” is not only insulting, it’s downright stupid. It is popular in today’s thinking to tear down America as a country, but America is still producing some of the smartest people in world. Maybe I’ll be lynched for saying something good about America. I don’t know. But next time you post, remember that every nation in the world has just as many problems as we do. You just don’t hear about them, much as they don’t hear about our problems.
Think about this: if our ally, Australia, had an economic depression, would you know? I doubt it. Here in America, we only hear about America’s problems. This makes it seem like we are the hellhole of the world if you do not keep up, in detail and depth, with foreign affairs.
