10 children's movies with rumored political agendas
The Lego Movie, 2014 »1 of 10 «
The popular film premiered on Feb. 7, but it left some wondering of its agenda. Vulture’s Bilge Ebiri wrote that the film was “practically communist.”
In addition, Fox Business News host Charles Payne said the movie’s villain, President Business, “looks a bit like Mitt Romney” and that Hollywood embeds these types of “anti-business” platforms and gets away with it.
However, The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway says that the film may be the most “subversive” pro-business film ever. “It’s also about the importance of hard work, creativity, ownership, innovation and human dignity … it really is anti-crony capitalism, which only furthers the classically liberal message,” Hemingway wrote. “Even if the big corporate interests in this country prefer thwarting competition via massive legislation, onerous regulations and other barriers to entry over the risks of a free-wheeling market, cronyism is not the same thing as capitalism.”
