Fox News Channels Steve Sibson

Maybe it's the other way around.

Yesterday, I thought that these comments at the Madville Times were the most over the top item I would read this week.  The claim that the effort to help students develop critical thinking skills is an integral part of a socialistic effort to create a "New Age Theocracy" struck me as ludicrous, so I responded with a bit of snark:
"Is there a single topic that does not lend itself to the charge it will lead to New Age Wiccan Masonic neo-Pagan Socialist Anarchy?"
Less than 24 hours later, I discover how wrong I was.  The Muppets apparently teach people to hate successful businessmen.

According to this New York Daily News article,
“The Muppets are back and being terrorized by an evil oil executive in their new movie,” said host Eric Bolling. “Liberal Hollywood depicting a successful businessman as ‘evil,’ that’s not new.”
“I’ll put it out there: Is liberal Hollywood using class warfare to kind of brainwash our kids?” Bolling then asked guest commentators.
Apparently "the left" has gone to far this time:
“It’s amazing how far the left will go to manipulate your kids and give them the anti-corporate message,” said guest Dan Gainor, of Media Research Center, a conservative think-tank.
At least the Muppets don't ask people to think critically.

I saw a Spearfish debater reading this Muppet article at school. Incredible!
