THE MUPPETS ARE COMMUNIST, FOX BUSINESS NETWORK SAYS
12/6/11

It ain't easy being green, but according to Fox Business, Kermit the Frog and
his muppet friends are reds.

Last week, on the network's "Follow The Money" program, host Eric Bolling went
went McCarthy on the new, Disney-released film, "The Muppets," insisting that
its storyline featuring an evil oil baron made it the latest example of Hollywood's
so-called liberal agenda.

Bolling, who took issue with the baron's name, Tex Richman, was joined by
Dan Gainor of the conservative Media Research Center, who was uninhibited
with his criticism.

"It's amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them,
give the anti-corporate message," he said.

"They've been doing it for decades. Hollywood, the left, the media, they hate the
oil industry," Gainor continued. "They hate corporate America. and so you'll
see all these movies attacking it, whether it was 'Cars 2,' which was another
kids' movie, the George Clooney movie 'Syriana,' 'There Will Be Blood,' all these
movies attacking the oil industry, none of them reminding people what oil
means for most people...fuel to light a hospital, heat your home, fuel an
ambulance to get you to the hospital if you need that. And they don't want
to tell that story."

Indeed, there was no mention of the benefits of oil drilling in the Muppets,
but there was also no discussion of any other aspect of the industry.
Richman, played by Chris Cooper, was out to destroy the Muppets' theater.
Kermit and his friends then were not committed enviromentalists (though
one must imagine the frog is concerned with his swampy homeland) but
simply puppets looking to save a place they once loved.

Still, Glainor blamed the film, and its predecessors, for Occupy Wall Street
and the environmental movement.

"This is what they are teaching our kids. You wonder why we've got a
bunch of Occupy Wall Street people walking all around the country, they've
been indoctrinated, literally for years by this kind of stuff," Glainor said.
"Whether it was 'Captain Planet,' or Nickelodeon's 'Big Green Help,'
or "The Day After Tomorrow,' the Al Gore-inspired movie, all of that is
what they're teaching, is that the corporations are bad, the oil industry is
bad, and ultimately what they're telling kids is what they told you in the movie,
'The Matrix,' that mankind is a virus on dear old mother Earth."

The Teletubbies were unavailable for comment. Mahna-Mahna.

Good god, thanks for reminding me, Bhawk. I must set my DVR as there's no way I can miss such engaging and thought provoking television. On top of that, I must do my small part to save Christmas from the godless plague called "liberalism."

I heard that some wacko's took the word "gay" out of a christmas carol, so as not to confuse the kiddies.

The purple one. Tinky Winky. Queer as a $3 bill.

Now, personally, the feminine nature of the way Tinky Winky carried himself didn't disturb me near as much as the episode when it started raining pills.

Wow...I don't know about the kind of kids you know, but the ones around here can pretty much think for themselves.

Tinky Winky isn't gay, he has no genitals!
And a TV for a stomach. good grief!

It's not a purse, It's a European carry all!

Kermit isn't Red, he's green!

Of course the Green Party is pretty liberal!

1 - in 1992 my middle child was in Nursery School. Came home to tell me (before the election) that she was told in school that Clinton was the next president.

2 - 2005. Taking my son on a college tour at Skidmore. Told by the Junior (a female) leading the tour that you get free road Runner Cable. When I pointed out that it was not free, but instead rolled into the hefty tuition she told me I didn't know what I was talking about, and that that was not true.

3 - around that same year I go to Florida with my wife's niece and her 5 year old twins. She begrudgingly lets me give them the water guns I purchased - normally wouldn't because they encourage violence. As she is telling me this one kid is trying to gouge the other one's eye out with his thumb.

This generation has been indoctrinated for a long time. They don't even realize that Bert and Ernie are lovers and Kermit has been doing Miss Piggy for years.

This isn't new. Remember, Adam was the gay son on Bonanza.

I always laugh at that picture.

Derek, the doe I shot two weeks ago had a three inch thick layer of fat.

She'd been eating our organic veggies for two years, it was as much pest control/loss prevention as it was just plain hunting.

We don't get mad, we get even.

Probably was the organic goods fattening her up. But, deer fat around the neck can predict the mildness or harshness of the winter to come. is the htree inches an indication of a hard winter or, in this case, just a girl getting her feed on??
