When I dared criticize the remake of "The Honeymooners" for recasting the classic with a Black cast, I was condemned as "racist" and even banned from FreeRepublic.com.
However, the film was such a flop that I don't even remember seeing any previews for the movie and it was barely in the theaters two weeks. So apparently most American's had similar feelings even if they dared not say so publicly.
I guess I will get similar flack for drawing attention to Disney's plans to replace Christopher Robbin with a female human lead.
But if Disney wants to take enlightened progressivism to its limit, why must the animals of the Hundred Acre Woods be shackled with human ownership all together?
Furthermore, shouldn't Kanga toss Roo into a daycare center and forsake her calling as a mother for a career that takes her outside the home?
Why don't they end the movie with a scene reminiscent of the French Revolution with Pooh and the gang standing gleefully over the decapitated heads of their human oppressors?
