Faux News Would Prefer if Hollywood Would Go Back to Using Poor Black Men as their Go To Villains Since Rich White Guys Never do Anything Evil
The Muppet's response:
So apparently, the only appropriate and realistic villain in this world can be Muslim's of any sort and poor, black, urban men. Not only would I say that the Muppets movie was actually depicting someone who is a bigger threat to them than Saddam Hussein or Adam and Steve wanting to get married in San Francisco but IT'S A FUCKING MOVIE!!! Guess what? Pigs and frogs don't really talk, wear clothes and drive cars!!!So maybe this movie is just a fictional kids story/fantasy. And not only that, is it not a stretch to use the name Tex Richman when the CEO of the Texas based Exxon Corporation is named Rex Tillerson and who as it turns out, is indeed rich??
And what were they supposed to do, make a movie about Muppet town being torn down by some thuggy rapper who wants to raze their land so he can build his bling mansion?? Or Obama taking over their land to turn it into a nature preserve for Alaskan wildlife?? Oooh, that would have been threatening and put asses in the seats! Or is a greedy corporate type who wants to raze property so he can drill for natural resources and make a billion dollars a bit more realistic?
And like I eluded to earlier, why is "indoctrinating/brainwashing" kids talking about the problems of oil a bad thing but sending them to church and brainwashing them that Jesus hates women who use birth control and gays? Or even telling them that their President is a Muslim, Kenyan, Socialist...ON A NEWS PROGRAM! That is supposed to report facts? I don't get how the Muppets fantasy is worse...Oh, and speaking of what Jesus taught...Maybe the Muppets were just taking their cue from Jesus and the Bible in vilifying the rich.
This Faux News panel would have had no problem if someone made an "indoctrinating" kids movie that spoke of the evils of being gay, nor do they have a problem with the conservative media using Tim Tebow the Superbowl to try to indoctrinate kids about the evils of a woman being able to chose not to be a baby dispenser or some movie about how climate change isn't real. Nor would they have had a problem with a teacher trying to indoctrinate school children into believing the Earth is 10k years old, we, and every animal living today came from Noah's Ark 5000 years ago or that evolution is only a theory. Why not criticize the Creation Museum for indoctrinating children?? Why is indoctrinating them with nonsense better than just showing them a kids movie with kids themes. Was Scooby Doo trying to indoctrinate children against evil amusement park owners?? I don't think so.
More phony outrage. To the outrage dispenser! Grasp any straw necessary:
And to respond to that Bimbos comment about indoctrinating kids about the evils of being rich and class warfare...Yes, I wonder where these kids are getting this kind of brainwashing??
'I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.'Matthew 19:24
"Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life."1 Timothy 6:17-19
'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?' He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least among you, you did not do for me.'" Matthew 25:41-45
"People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." 1 Timothy 6:9-10
"Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle." Proverbs 23:4-5
"Then [Jesus] said to them, 'Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.'" Luke 12:15
"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." Matthew 6:24
If you don't want your kids to be indoctrinated and brainwashed against wealth and greed, stop sending them to church and letting them read the teachings of Jesus. It's not Hollywood who is spreading this message, it's that hippie, socialist named Jesus Christ...The original Occupy Wall St. protester.
