wall-e is... a fascist???

A friend of mine forwarded this to me today. Apparently WALL-E has pissed off some right-wingers with its environmental message (how awful!) and "fascist elements" (like EVE getting in touch with her emotions).

Good God. I'm honestly having a hard time figuring out how these people think they have a leg to stand on.

Give me strength.

    Wall-E totally looks like the robot from "Short Circuit"... minus the cheesy 80's style of course

    That seems to be the consensus.

    The American Right really does entertain me sometimes.

    I'm beginning to believe that if you take any source material and pay it enough attention with your own agenda, you'll be able to use it to back up just about any point.

    There's lots of crazy in both camps. I hate far left and right wing politics...and I consider myself a pretty tolerant person.

    Hatter... That is so true. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have an actual conversation without bringing out the crazy all the time?

    That does go for the far left and far right, thought I admit I'm a bit left-leaning.

    Thanks, Farzan! Yours is pretty cool, too.

    I haven't even seen Wall-E yet, and that sound crazy to me!

    Thanks for the "Lamb Chop" nomination!

    It's like they relish the "heel" role - how could anyone be offended by a "pro-environment" message? Would they rather be seen as the destroyer of worlds?

    Wait, don't answer that.

    It is really hard for me to understand people who can't get behind the environment thing. What exactly is the downside of taking care of our planet?

    Apparently, the answer we're looking for is "admitting that the 'enemy' was right."

    Ugh.
