Default Fox News accuses The Muppets of anti Capitalist brainwashing!

Fox of all people accusing anyone of brainwashing, the height of irony.



Why hasn't FOX accused Jesus of socialist/communist/Marxist brainwashing for providing free fish & bread and for trashing the stalls of merchants outside the temple?

Rupuert Murdoch truly is a blight on humanity. I know he is not micro managing the minutia of the content on his media but he certainly is aware of the criticism and absurd stances propagated on his media.

Deploying swift, broad strokes, O'Reilly painted a graphic picture of lesbian gangs running amok. "In Tennessee, authorities say a lesbian gang called GTO, Gays Taking Over, are involved in raping young girls," he reported. "And in Philadelphia, a lesbian gang called DTO, Dykes Taking Over, are allegedly terrorizing people as well."

Bill O'Reilly can go and **** himself, right where it hurts. I seriously hate that man. In other news, The guardian has responded with this little gem to the whole saga..

http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/short...plots-revealed

The Muppet Movie (1979). The Muppets head for liberal Hollywood, portrayed here as some kind of collectivist paradise, while a businessman, a Colonel Sanders-type fast food magnate, is once again the antagonist. The notion of slaughtering a pig (in this case, Miss Piggy) is treated as if it were equivalent to murder. Thank you, veggie-nazis.

The Great Muppet Caper (1981). The Muppets travel to London, home of socialised medicine. Features some squatting.

The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984). I didn't see this one, but it's clearly about the Muppets joining some sort of terrorist network, which may sound funny to certain leftwing intellectual freedom-haters, but I think it's just sick.

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992). Based on a story by Charles Dickens, whose other work was known to demonise workhouses, prisons and the wealthy. On the plus-side, the film itself promotes private charity over state intervention, but the overall message is that poor people got that way through no fault of their own, and need rich people to bail them out.

Muppet Treasure Island (1996). Treats the entrepreneurial wherewithal of freelance treasure hunters as "piracy". Why, for once, can't the bad guy turn out to be an overzealous environmental regulator?

Muppets From Space (1999). This film posits an essentially godless universe where certain Muppets turn out to be space aliens and is, in its own way, as anti-Christian as any Harry Potter film.


Wouldn't be surprised if they eventually will use this to back their wholesome 'opinionated rants' or whatever it is they call their non news shows.
