Dobbs Lorax

Fox Business Network is targeting another children's movie for allegedly brainwashing children with liberal ideas: "Dr Seuss' The Lorax."

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.

He compared the movie to the Occupy Wall Street movement, which he said "forever tried to pit the makers against the takers," and President Obama's calls that "everyone should pay their fair share."

"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.
