Fox News Attacks the Muppets

Posted by Paul Constant on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 2:44 PM

This morning, the Atlantic Wire showed...

...a clip of Eric Bolling on Fox Business discussing how The Muppets movie is anti-capitalist brainwashing...You see the astute thesis here is that, because the villain in the new Muppets movie is a mean old oilman named Tex Richman, the movie, which was written and made well before any of the recent Occupy unrest (and y'know is for children and stuff), is indoctrinating children to hate the rich.

Here's the clip:

How dare these liberal movies attack the oil industry, and promote sharing? This afternoon, the Twitter hashtag #GOPMuppethearings has blown up, with Twitter users imagining what a Republican-run congressional committee would ask of the Muppets. The results are pretty funny. And there are lots of them.
