Curious George

Remember Curious George? I sure remember that sketchy little monkey. Well it seems there is a new Curious George movie. Harmless fun for the kids, right? Wrong. For the humorless left wing, where everything is political, "harmless fun" is an oxymoron. Check out this tidbit:
(T)he "Curious George" children's books are a minefield of cultural horrors through which to tiptoe. Imperialism. Animal abuse. Bad parenting.
They're not really going to do this are they? Are they? Why, yes. Yes. They. Are.
"The books are really irresponsible to me. It's sickening, really," said Robin Roth, managing editor of, an animal welfare Web site. [...]

Roth, a high school English teacher in Los Angeles, writes on her animal rights Web site that "Curious George" reveals "the sinister side of a corrupt wildlife trade with perilous roots in Western imperialism." When the mischievous George is sent to jail, "the picture of the forlorn little primate alone in his cell conjures haunting images of countless monkeys lingering in laboratories, suffering silently and alone."
What must real life look like to you if that's your perspective on a children's book? Some leftists must lead positively miserable existences.
