The list of people/groups/emotions that Fox News hates is so long that we're surprised there's still room for any new entrants.

But, Follow The Money host Eric Bolling has launched a new attack on a dangerous group of radicals: The Muppets.

Their new movie is currently making a mint over in the US and with a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it's making a lot of critics very happy too. But Bolling and his Fox cohorts are convinced that the kids movie has an evil agenda.

In the film, Chris Cooper plays the villain Tex Richman, an oil baron who wants to tear down the historic muppets theatre. Bolling believes that the choice of his name and occupation is proof of the film's liberal leanings and attempt to brainwash young children.

"We're teaching our kids class warfare!" he claimed. "Where are we, communist China?"

Another critic slammed liberals for trying to "indoctrinate" the youth by painting successful businessmen as antagonists. They claimed that TV shows such as Captain Planet have also attempted to push the left-wing agenda on children too, with their inclusion of environmental issues.
