Say it ain't so, Kermit. Don't tell us you've gone all Commie and are launching class warfare. Fox TV says you have. "We're teaching our kids class warfare," groused Follow the Money host Eric Bolling about the new Muppets movie. "Where are we, communist China?" He's particularly irritated that the wealthy villain in the Muppets movie is named Tex Richman, who aims to tear down the Muppets theater so he can drill for oil.

"It's brainwashing in the most obvious form," chimed in fellow Fox commentator Andrea Tantaros. "I just wish liberals could just leave little kids alone!" Also piling on top the Muppets was a spokesman from the conservative Media Research Center, notes the Daily Mail. "It's amazing how far the left will go to manipulate your kids to give the anti-corporate message," said Dan Gainor. (More Eric Bolling stories.)
