It’s Easy Being Green. To Piss Off a Climate Denier, Just See the Muppets this Weekend.

December 2, 2011

Business and Media Institute:

Tex Richman, a wealthy man that plans to demolish the Muppet studio after the National Geological Survey finds oil directly beneath it, has his plans foiled by three Muppet fans. They “discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds,” as described by “The Muppets” website.

Throughout the movie, Richman cackles maniacally and shows just how heartless he really is by denying Kermit’s personal plea to give back the studio. He even tells the Muppets its “time to give up your dream,” which is one of the worst things anyone can say to a Muppet (or a Hollywood liberal).
Yes, it’s a Muppet movie – farcical and silly. But how sadly predictable that the villain is the perennial bogeyman of liberal environmentalists, and how sadly telling that the writers politicized a children’s movie. Again.

I saw it. It’s funny. If you feel self conscious about going to a kids movie, borrow a 10 year old to go see it with you.

One more parody trailer below.

    In movies as far back as I can remember, rich business types have been typical villains that threaten to tear down community centers or teenage hangouts. Inevitably, the heroes of the story save said community center and get the attention from the significant other they had their eye on. The Business and Media Institute needs to remove the stick from their collective butt.

    That’s because people know, going back to Isaiah, that rich business types are, not always, but often, at the root of a lot of problems.
    “Jaws” comes to mind.

    — correct me if I’m wrong, but unless the chilluns are brought up to realise that there’s a problem, nothing will change. After all, as I see it, that’s how we got into the mess we’re currently in: our parents didn’t question whether there was a problem with the way things were being done, and so their kids (us) were brought up to believe that this insane world we’re busily destroying is ‘normal’.
