Video: Fox News Blames The Muppets For the Occupy Movement

Brace yourself, because this could possibly be the dumbest shit ever said on Fox News. According to Fox News, not only are the Muppets communist, but they are also to blame for the Occupy Movement.

Last week, “Follow the Money” host Eric Bolling was joined by Dan Gainor of the conservative Media Research Center and they took issue with the new Muppets movie plot, which features an evil oil magnet as the villain. Gainor claimed that the movie was being used by the liberals to manipulate children by teaching them an anti-corporate message.

“It’s amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them, give the anti-corporate message,” he said.

“They’ve been doing it for decades. Hollywood, the left, the media, they hate the oil industry,” Gainor continued. “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.”

Gainor went even further, blaming the Muppet movie and others like it for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

“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,” Gainor said. “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.”

Are these people serious? Have things really gotten so ridiculous that we’re not blamining inanimate stuffed objects for protest? Let us know what you think in the comment section.
