Apparently, liberal loons are running out of wholesome things to be outraged about.
Pretty darn miserable is our guess. Just a taste of the paranoid mess made by Tracy Van Slyke:
Thomas and those friends are trains that toil away endlessly on the Isle of Sodor – which seems to be forever caught in British colonial times – and, on its surface, the show seems to impart good moral lessons about hard work and friendship. But 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.
But the problem is that while Falwell was rightfully mocked in the media, Van Slyke will likely be taken seriously.
Sexism, racism, anti-environmentalism, classism. Anyone ever stop to consider how dangerous it might be to anthropomorphize railroad equipment? How confusing is that for kids?
