Fox Business Network's Lou Dobbs Blasts 'The Lorax': Hollywood Is 'Trying To Indoctrinate Our Children'
The network first slammed "The Muppets" in December. Host Eric Bolling had insisted that the movie, which features an evil oil baron, was part of Hollywood's vendetta against oil companies.
On Tuesday, host Lou Dobbs railed against "The Lorax," along with the Japanese children's film, "The Secret World of Arrietty." "Hollywood is once again trying to indoctrinate our children," he warned. He claimed that the movies were "demonizing the 1% and espousing green energy policies."
Dobbs said "The Lorax" was about "a woodland creature that speaks for the trees and fights rampant industrialism." He replayed a clip of the Lorax demanding to know who chopped down a Truffula Tree.
"The President's liberal friends in Hollywood targeting a younger demographic using animated movies to sell their agenda to children," he alleged.
His guests, radio hosts Dom Giordano, Matt Patrick and Steve Cochran, agreed.
"What we're doing is creating Occu-toddlers," Patrick said. He directed parents to "buy huge tubs of popcorn, ram it in your face," leave the litter behind and walk out of the movie
