Just when you think that the Social Justice Left can’t crank up the Nutz-O-Meter any higher than 11 along comes a progressive critique of the “fascist” kids show Thomas the Tank Engine to up the Completely Batshit Crazy red line to 12.
From the CNN post titled Why Kids Love Fascist Cartoons Like Paw Patrol and Thomas:
“Thomas,” the long-running television franchise about a group of working trains chugging away on the Island of Sodor, has been called a “premodern corporate-totalitarian dystopia” in the New Yorker, imperialist and sinister in Slate, and classist, sexist and anti-environmentalist in the Guardian. And yet people — presumably parents — spend $1 billion on “Thomas” merchandise every year.
Yes folks, it appears that Your Favorite Fascist Beatle, Ringo Starr, was secretly promoting the establishment of a Tank Engine Reich all those years he played Mr. Conductor at the Shining Time Station.
I’m not surprised though. I always felt ol’ Rich Starkey had a Oswald Mosley vibe about him, particularly when it came to “making the trains run on time” if you catch my drift.
Honest to God, these people are beyond certifiably insane and they ruin everything they touch.
