Radical Right Are Fearful Of Wall-E's Liberal Facism, Decry Green Message
Thinkprogress has put together a wonderful smattering of quotes from some of our favorite outraged radical right decrying Pixar’s new animated film Wall-E and the environmental message it contains. Here are a few highlights:
Glenn Beck: I can’t wait to teach my kids how we’ve destroyed the Earth. … Pixar is teaching. I can’t wait. You know if your kid has ever come home and said, “Dad, how come we use so much styrofoam,” oh, this is the movie for you.
Shannen Coffin: From the first moment of the film, my kids were bombarded with leftist propaganda about the evils of mankind. It’s a shame, too, because the robot had promise. The story was just awful, however.
Amazing, isn’t it? I saw the movie on Monday and thought it was a fantastic story — and by no means did I feel the environmental plot line distracted from the love story. And “fascistic elements”? Are you kidding me? One guy even went so far to say that the color red used in the movie in evidence of a facist agenda! Whoa.
Thankfully, the vast majority of the world does not subscribe to the fading radical right’s view of the world. Currently, Wall-E is enjoying a remarkable 96% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. A wonderful achievement!
