Ain't It Certifiable News

Posted by codemorse

From Aint It Cool News:

...if someone sat down to make a similar version of the Communist Manifesto, it would look a hell of a lot like The Ant Bully. It’s a warm ultra-liberal hug of a kids film, preaching the joys of socialism and hard work, all the while telling a story of what the world might be like in a liberal post-9/11 world.

What? You think I’m kidding? Over-reacting? Maybe that I’m
reading too much into this?

Possibly, yes.
As Lucas and Zoc sit atop a rock and stare at the human city, Zoc asks ‘Is that your hive?’ ‘Yeah, I guess it’s like a hive.’ When Zoc asks about how it works, Lucas replies ‘I guess it’s every man for himself.’ This leads to a Zoc monologue about how that just doesn’t make any sense.

Everyone has their place and don’t the humans realize that if they all work together and share in the fruits of their labor that they all can benefit?

Yeah. See. I ain’t making this shit up. Zoc falls just short of saying “Everyone open your little red books and follow along on page 57.” This is gonna play really well in China. And North Korea? Kim Jong Il is gonna flip for this.

AHHHH! Save us! Save us from the godless, communist spectre of "cooperation"!

Parents, shield your fragile children from "The Ant Bully"! And while you're at it, make sure to keep them away from "The Lion King," (Circle of Life? More like Circle-of-Sinister-Anti-Democratic-Tendencies!) "A Bug's Life," (Bugs all working together? Tell it to Joe McCarthy, sister!) and most of all, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". Just look at those Whos down in Whoville! They're without presents and baubles and boxes! They're without toys, trains and warm woolen soxes! Yet they remain so very happy! Clearly they represent the anti-materialist communists at their most vile!
