|Faux News Attacks The Muppets|
Life’s a happy song, but not when Faux Business is singing along. The network is upset that the new Muppets movie, The Muppets, features an oil tycoon as a villain, with various contributors complaining last week that the film amounts to “indoctrination” of young people into “hating corporate America” that borders on “Communist[ic].” Dan Gainor of the conservative Media Research Center agreed with host Eric Bolling that “liberal Hollywood is using class warfare to brainwash our kids” and the discussion rambled on from there. Watch it, via Media Matters:
The discussion unraveled into attacks against President Obama, the 99 Percent movement, and Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA). Andrea Tantaros, host of “The Five” over on Fox News, implored that Tex Richman embodies “The American Dream,” and Bolling suggested that teaching that wealth is bad amounts to Communism.
The Muppets, on the other hand, offers a very simple message of friendship and love to its viewers in its final number:
We’ve got everything that we need, we can be whatever we want to be. Nothing we can’t do, the skies are blue when it’s me and you and you and you. Life’s a happy song when there’s someone by your side to sing along.It’s nothing new for Faux News and Faux Business to defend corporate interests, but who knew they seemingly oppose the unimpeachable messages of cooperation that the Muppets have been promoting for decades?
This is why it is important for teapublicans to please remember to breed responsibly, as there is no life guard at the gene pool. Really the "Muppets".
