FOX: Muppets are spreading an 'anti-corporate message'
The cable station host Eric Bolling recently railed against the new movie " The Muppets," saying the film was simply a tool of the left-wingers in Hollywood. He cited the fact that the film's bad guy is an oil tycoon named Tex Richman.
"It's amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them, give the anti-corporate message," Bolling says. The show's guest, Dan Gainor from the Media Research Center, echoed the criticism.
"They've been doing it for decades. Hollywood, the left, the media, they hate the oil industry," Gainor says. "All of that is what they're teaching, is that corporations is 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 poor old mother Earth."
Even after Gainor's segment ends, Bolling, along with "The Five" co-host Andrea Tantaros, continued the verbal assault on Muppets and the evil for which they stand.
Tantaros blasted the film saying, "It is brainwashing in the most obvious form. I just wish liberals could leave little kids alone."
Then Bolling chimed in and suggested recasting the film with a new antagonist.
"Have the evil person being Obama administration or Obama," he says.
