Last week on Fox Business's Follow the Money, show host Eric Bolling spoke with the conservative Media Research Center's Dan Gainor about the new Muppets movie.
Here's what Gainor had to say about The Muppets' oil baron villain character Tex Richman:
"It's amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them, give the anti-corporate message."
"They've been doing it for decades. Hollywood, the left, the media, they hate the oil industry. They hate corporate America. And so you'll see all these movies attacking it, whether it was Cars 2, which was another kids' movie, the George Clooney movie Syriana, There Will Be Blood, all these movies attacking the oil industry, none of them reminding people what oil means for most people: fuel to light a hospital, heat your home, fuel an ambulance to get you to the hospital if you need that. And they don't want to tell that story."
More from Gainor:
"This is what they're teaching our kids. You wonder why we've got a bunch of Occupy Wall Street people walking around all around the country, they've been indoctrinated, literally, for years by this kind of stuff."
"Whether it was Captain Planet or Nickelodeon's Big Green Help, or The Day After Tomorrow, the Al Gore-influenced movie, 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."
Look Gainor, if U weren't a fan of The Day After Tomorrow, then fine…but leave our Muppets out of this, please! The movie was absolutely adorable and good hearted!
Get over it!
