It has finally come to this. The war of words and ideology just got serious-as-a-heart-attack! Now that the cartoonish Eric Bolling at Fox has called out the Indoctrination of "Merikan Children by Muppets as part of the Kenyan Socialist Agenda, nothing could be more important to our country than battling this weapons grade puppet menace, unless maybe it's a War on Christmas or something. Yet, that is SO last month.....
Let the battle royale begin! First enjoy that tasty doughy thingy on your way over the jump. I like mine with a pat of butter and a nice cappuccino.
Here, before your very own eyes, you will read and no doubt be quite concerned with the implications put forward by the intrepid, not-really-ready-for-prime-time-or-any-other-time
Reporter Propogandist Bolling. Please hide the children under their blankies before reading forward. Fear is good. No, really.
Kermit and Miss Piggy finally fired back at Fox Business' accusations that they are little more than puppets of a liberal agenda aiming to "brainwash" kids.
While movie critics almost uniformly lavished the reboot of Jim Henson’s family-friendly Muppets with praise, Eric Bolling, host of Fox Business's “Follow the Money,” found fault with the perceived message in a Dec. 2 telecast flagged by Media Matters.
“The Muppets are back and being terrorized by an evil oil executive in their new movie,” Bolling said of the movie's villain, an oilman named Tex Richman (played by Chris Cooper), who's trying to raze the Muppets' historic theater to drill for oil. “Liberal Hollywood depicting a successful businessman as ‘evil,’ that’s not new.”
"It's sooo dangerous," Kermit, voiced by puppeteer Steve Whitmire, told reporters. "It's a funny thing, they were concerned with us having some prejudice against oil companies and I can tell you that's categorically not true.
"And besides if we had a problem with oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around in a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce."
Miss Piggy, however, put it more succinctly: "It's a almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of, you know, being news."
Amazingly astute for a puppet, n'est ce pas?
Seriously. The clown car that is Faux News has done jumping the shark one better. They finally jumped the muppet.
Hilarious. Yet sad.
