The Lion King
by Fredrik Haerne
June 22, 2002
I was a young teenager in 1994 when "The Lion King" was released, and not yet
fully awakened to the state of things in the movie industry. Even so I
understood that Disney was moving away from European sagas to themes from
the dark races, and "The Lion King" seemed to fit nicely into this picture:
African theme, African music in the opening scene - business as usual in
Hollywood. However, "The Lion King" also contains something else, namely the
lesson of responsibility, and loyalty toward your own kind. A while ago I
asked myself, how is it that this message can come through in a movie made
by today's Jew-controlled Disney?
I learned that the reason is simple: Disney didn't make this story at all.
"The Lion King" is a complete rip-off; its first writer and animator was the
Japanese "god of manga" Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989), who pretty much shaped the
whole manga/anime genre of cartoons. Tezuka wrote an anime TV series called
"Jangaru Taitei," which was later turned into a U.S. series in the sixties
called "Kimba The White Lion." After his death Michael Eisner and his
tribesmen saw fit to plagiarize his work and make one of the
best-selling movies of all times. Tezuka, who respected the old Disney but
had only contempt for its modern, more sinister face, received no credits at
all for the making of the story.
Then again, I wouldn't expect Disney ever TO want the "White Lion" part to
show up in movie reviews tracing the film's origin. And a White lion Simba
A good thing with the movie being animated: you don't have to see the voice
actors. And the fact that convicted drug addict and socialist Whoopie
Goldberg does the voice for a hyena only lifts the movie in my eyes.
However, the movie does not need lifting. Granted, Eisner & Co. picked the
story because it takes place in Africa, instead of in Europe. They are safe in the knowledge that most Whites today couldn't spot nationalism if it is staring them in the face -- like this movie is. To a White nationalist, however, the movie is valuable, because it is one of few you want your children to watch. I will make sure to save it for when I have children of my own.
What is it then that is especially valuable here? Simple: "The Lion King" is
pure nationalist education. Its lessons are many. For example, early in the
movie King Mufasa of the Lions brings his son Simba to the top of a hill,
where they look out over the lands controlled by their kind. There are many
species living there, and the proud, strong, wise lions are their undisputed
masters. No one makes any excuses for this order of things, and no one
questions its wisdom. All animals are much better off this way than they
would be without the elite looking after them, and the word "democracy"
holds no value here. The reason is that this elite has a very clear and
noble mission: to protect Life. Mufasa emphasizes that his son and all lions
must always strive to protect the strength of Life, or "the circle of Life."
When observing their wise rule, we can only agree.
This is, however, not a problem-free environment. The kingdom is threatened
both from the outside and the inside. From the outside by the vile hyenas, the
lowest form of life: violent, lazy and stupid. They are banned from the Lion
Kingdom, and lead a destructive existence without any hope of improvement in
their own, dark territory. Naturally they constantly long for the riches of
the Lion Kingdom, but they have no chance of ever realizing their plans, as
the superior lions can lick them with one paw tied behind their backs.
Things could very well remain the way they are forever -- orderly, safe,
prosperous -- if it hadn't been for the inside threat. This comes in the form
of Scar, the king's evil brother, who is an especially despicable creature.
While he looks almost like the other lions he is physically inferior to his
larger and stronger brother, and he is marked by a black mane instead of a
golden one. Despite the fact that he prospers as much as anyone else from
the order of things, he covets the power that is denied him. The king is
aware of Scar's evil nature, but he underestimates his powers of deception
and tolerates his presence. A fatal mistake.
Scar seeks out the lions' natural enemies, the hyenas, and gives them an
offer: if they help him grab the throne, he will grant them citizenship in
the Lion Kingdom and allow them to plunder at will. Scar doesn't even try to
conceal his contempt for the filthy species, but he knows he needs them in
order to take and secure power. The hyenas know this, but they also know
that they could never pull off an invasion on their own, and so an unholy
alliance is forged.
Scar and the hyenas succeed in murdering King Mufasa, mainly because of
Scar's lies and treachery, while cleverly disquising their role in the
drama. Simba runs off to a faraway land, and Scar quickly consolidates the
throne. The darkest and most instructive scene in the whole movie is when he
is holding his speech to the other lions, promising them a "new and glorious
future" together with the hyenas. Meanwhile, the hyenas approach from all
directions, evil grins in their faces. The lions all look terrified, but
they do nothing; the throne has betrayed them, and they stand without
leadership. They have nothing else to do but to give up their land and
pretend to believe in the lies.
Any of this sound familiar yet? I should think so: Osamu Tezuka's
references to the White world's plight are extremely clear, and anyone who
doesn't understand this last scene should never have watched more advanced
TV than Donald Duck in the first place. Eisner & Co. could erase "White Lion"
from the title, but they couldn't erase Scar without remaking the entire
What happens next is not always as clear, however, but when you think about
it Tezuka gives us a message even with Simba's exile. Simba (or Kimba in
the original version) ends up living not with lions, but with smaller
species. They are nice enough, but they have no understanding of the
greatness of the Lion Kingdom and its ideals. When Simba tells his newfound
friends of "ancient kings" they just laugh at him. The mythology of his
ancestors is discarded, and cut off from the guidance he should have had,
Simba caves in. His new philosophy is Individualism: do whatever you want,
you don't have any responsibilities at all. The movie calls this "hakuna
matata," and it threatens to make Simba blind for the rest of his life, a
permanent loss to his people. Furthermore, the alien philosophy is
strengthened by Scar's managing to make him believe that he, Simba, was
responsible for his father's death. Guilt and self-hatred were the Jew's
first tools against us, and Osamu Tezuka clearly understood their
importance. Simba's fall to Individualism in an atomized existence mirrors
We are in luck, however -- the catharsis comes when Simba's childhood love
finds him and pleads to him to return to the kingdom. Simba understands that
he has been misled by a selfish ideology; the true way to live is by serving
a greater good. He returns to his people after many years in exile, only to
find a society that has taken a drastic turn for the worse. Scar and his
dark legions have bled the kingdom dry, and neither lion nor hyena can now
survive much longer. The lions have every reason to regret their earlier
cowardice at a time when they could have stood up against the intruder. It
is clear they now understand their situation better than ever, but still
they do nothing; despite their greatness they will do nothing on their own,
not without the right leadership.
Enter Simba: strong, powerful, and filled with rage against the intruders.
There will be no more talking, no more lies. There will be no more tolerance
of either Scar or his lower allies. They have betrayed the trust the lions
gave them, and their crimes will be paid in blood. Simba is the leader his
people need, and he comes at a time when they have suffered so much that
they are prepared to do what they should have done even before Mufasa's
death. Too bad for the hyenas. Facing an awakened Aryan race -- sorry,
awakened lions -- they understand that they don't stand a chance. In one clear
sweep the old injustices are swept away, and the lions reclaim their land.
Scar and the hyenas vanish in an ocean of fire and blood.
The movie ends with Simba's son being shown to the people, a symbol of that
things have returned to normal, and the lions are once again the masters of
their own destiny; the destiny as the guardians of Life.
As I said earlier, this is a very clear message from a man who looked at our
world with open eyes. I would like to see Tezuka's original TV series, but
this version will do. "The Lion King" should be included in any movie
collection, but it should be explained to those who see it, as I realize
most never expect this movie's message and so aren't looking for it. That
done, pass the popcorn and watch Nature take its inevitable course.
