New Muppets movie is anti-capitalist propaganda, according to Fox News

Unsure of who to turn against in these trying times of ours, one brave Fox Business Network anchor has gone out on a limb to wage political war against none other than the Muppets.

With the words "Are liberals trying to brainwash your kids against capitalism?" running at the bottom of the screen, host Eric Bolling speculated that The Muppets was not, in fact, meant to be a family-friendly holiday movie about a group of internationally beloved puppets, so much as a vehicle for left-leaning anti-corporate propaganda. Citing the movie's oil-baron villain "Tex Richman" as a direct shot against capitalism, Bolling's guest Dan Gainor said, "It's amazing how far the left will go to manipulate your kids to give the anti-corporate message."

Gainor went on to explain how many kids' movies have an anti-oil-industry message (Cars 2, for instance), concluding that "liberal Hollywood" has been "using class warfare to brainwash our kids for decades." Thus, the systematic "indoctrination" that has led us to Occupy Wall Street. 

So Hollywood, take note: if you just stop making all your stupid, biased movies, everyone will finally calm down about rampant unemployment, underemployment, vanishing socio-economic mobility, and our stagnant national economy. Cut the suffering oil barons of the world a break for once!
