Dear Mr. Depp:
Despite your valiant performance as a quirky Native American, your performance could not save the murderous travesty that Disney perpetrated on the great American Past when they filmed your movie The Lone Ranger.
Recently, ÜH and I saw Disney’s new version of The Lone Ranger. I did this against the express warnings of some trusted advisors who said I would likely not be able to get past the glaring historical timeline issues. However, I have a particular soft spot in my heart for Johnny Depp’s characters and hoped that Tonto would be able to quiet my nagging critic.
Oh how wrong I was!
In fact, Disney’s disservice to our great nation’s history was so offensive it will require multiple posts to discuss the complete extent of their gratuitous inconsistencies. Though I do not believe the movie was ever touted as an accurate historical fiction film, I would highly recommend that Disney get some credible historians and geographers to review the script of future films that even so much as sniff in the direction of American History.
I will cover the major inconsistencies in the following categories:
- Disney Thinks Time is a Vacuum
- Disney Must Think History is Hum Drum
- Which Way is West? Disney Needs a Geography Lesson
I tried, I honestly did… but the atrocities committed were too horrendous to ignore. Be forewarned, this is your spoiler warning.
