Just when you think that liberals cannot get any more Looney-tunes, someone comes up with a ridiculous notion it is racist that only the good engines pump out white smoke in a talking train cartoon. According to IJ Review, the famous cartoon series “Thomas & Friends” might just be racist because the good trains pump out white smoke and the “bad trains” pump out, you guessed it: black smoke!
Of course in the Obama era of political correctness where logic has gone completely haywire, it should not be a surprise to any reasonable person that liberals like Guardian writer Tracy Van Slyke thinks ‘subversive messages abound.
She seems to reject the notion that a gentle kind-hearted story about a train that has many train friends that want to do well. Instead, she trains her liberal firepower weaponry on some deep seated negative message. She writes, “If you look through the steam rising up from the coal-powered train stacks, you realize that the pretty puffs of smoke are concealing some pretty twisted, anachronistic messages,” reported IJ Review.
So in other words, when your child, grandchild or niece or nephew is watching the “Thomas & Friends” cartoon they must put on their political correct blinders on and seek the liberal truth as she sees it. This of course is such a shame because; with this type of lunacy nearly every enjoyable children’s cartoon or book can be twisted into portraying some type of racist narrative.
What then about “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” or “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Was Snow White abducted by brown-skinned racist bears or Snow White using the seven dwarfs to work as slaves for the white establishment? See how far this ridiculous notion can be taken by liberal PC police!
Take a step back and a deep breath and pray that someone with more sense and less sensationalism will finally determine that enough already. Sometimes a story about a train that talks is just about a train that talks and simply drop the insanity.
