Awww, come on. This little guy?
Think Progress – Right-Wing Apoplectic Over Pixarâ..s WALL-E: â..Malthusian Fear Mongering,â.. â..Fascistic Elementsâ..
Somehow, this touching love story has outraged the radical right:
Shannen Coffin: From the first moment of the film, my kids were bombarded with leftist propaganda about the evils of mankind. Itâ..s a shame, too, because the robot had promise. The story was just awful, however.
Greg Pollowitz: It was like a 90-minute lecture on the dangers of over consumption, big corporations, and the destruction of the environment. â.¦ Much to Disneyâ..s chagrin, I will do my part to avoid future environmental armageddon by boycotting any and all WALL-E merchandise and I hope others join my crusade.
Glenn Beck: I canâ..t wait to teach my kids how weâ..ve destroyed the Earth. â.¦ Pixar is teaching. I canâ..t wait. You know if your kid has ever come home and said, â..Dad, how come we use so much styrofoam,â. oh, this is the movie for you.
Dirty Harry: Have we lost Pixar? Have we lost the wonderful studio who brought us The Incredibles and Ratatouille to Bush Derangement Syndrome? Here you have a winning streak going back ten-years, enormous amounts of public goodwill, equal amounts of credibility as serious storytellers, and they stop things cold, yanking you out of the story with the liberal nonsense. Quite a disappointment.
Jonah Goldberg: I agree with the charges of hypocrisy. I agree that the Malthusian fear mongering was annoying
