WATCH: Fox News Accuses The Muppets of Brainwashing Children with Liberal Agenda
If this isn't a good reason to go support The Muppets in its post-opening weekend theatrical run, I don't know what is: Watch as a Fox News anchor and two right-wing pundit accuse Disney's The Muppets of brainwashing children with its anti-capitalist message. Then rejoice as Professor Caroline Heldman of Occidental College drops science and keeps her cool in defense of the Muppets, President Obama, and reasonable thinking in general.
It's hard to choose the single most vile sound bite uttered by the trio of Follow the Money host Eric Bolling, The Five's Andrea Tantaros, and the Media Research Center's Dan Gainor, but my vote is with Bolling. "Maybe they should have a hungry Muppet -- a Food Stamp Muppet -- and the evil person be Obama!" he squawks.
Heldman, a politics professor, is hilariously cut off by her preening host every time she delivers a reasoned smack down in defense of the film. Warning: Watching the video may lead to high blood pressure and numerous face palms. Muppets marketing team, here's your next target.
