    The Muppets Are Communist, Fox Business Network Says

    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 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.[FONT=Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif]"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."[/FONT]

    Maximize the apparent silliness by saying "Muppets are Communists, Fox Says"... when in reality what certain people were pointing out is how many Hollywood movies, including the recent Muppets movie, cast the oil industry or corporate America in general as the enemy.

    The antagonist business interest has been an age-old archetype. Again, it has nothing to do directly with the political slant of the writers. It's a plot device, it moves the story along. Sheeesh...

    it is a bit odd that the oil industry is always cast as the enemy...well, not odd... just ,well, stupid.


    but it's silly to say the Muppet are Commies.

    The big evil cooperation plot line is nothing new, I don't know why they are surprised. I'm guessing they are going to blast "A Christmas Carol" next.
