Sorry that this has little to do with the topic at hand, but I find it absurd to say that Gab was removed for anything other than being a dangerous haven for white supremacy. Free speech does not allow me to engage in libel/slander, use racial epithets, or plan and execute an insurrection.

Having said that, I think the mere fact that we’re debating Gab and “PC police,” and not the Fantasia restoration, is against the spirit of this site. I come to Original Trilogy to read about and to discuss film, not politics. If people wish to debate, that’s fine, but please take it to Off Topic. In fact, I don’t know if there’s one there already, but perhaps all of the political aspects of Fantasia could have their own dedicated thread there? These tangents happen often.

Back on topic, I think Fantasia is a true work of art, and it’s long been my intention to own it with the original Fantasound mix. It’d be spectacular to see that recreated on 4K Blu-ray with Dolby Atmos!! In the meantime, I intend to learn more about Fantasia and to celebrate the great preservation efforts people here make! 😃

Not sure why you say Gab was “removed” as it’s still online. And actually racial epithets is in fact covered under the first amendment. Gab does not promote any point of view, they allow all views. If for instance the American Communist Party or the NAACP want to go on Gab, they would be allowed to do so.

But you’re right, free speech does not cover plans to execute violence. That being said, Twitter, IG, and Facebook are guilty of that as they did nothing to stop the instigators of the 2020 riots from using their platforms to plan violence and destruction throughout the nation. 25+ dead, 700+ injured, and 2 billion in damage is on the hands of “respectable” social media platforms. Not Gab. To boot, Twitter was a major tool for the Taliban as they took over Afghanistan. Twitter did nothing to stop that. Again, the Taliban did not use Gab.

All that being said, I do agree. Let’s get back to Fantasia discussion. Bottom line is, you don’t like Sunflower? It’s simple. Don’t download a version that showcases it and allow people who want to watch it to do so. No one is forcing you to watch it. Don’t force others not to watch (or enjoy) it.

So who is willing to work on V2 of this? In doing so we can upgrade the source video to the Australian PAL DVD.
