'My Little Pony' has gone woke: New Netflix movie introduces progressive creatures

I mean, Fox News is late to the party when you factor in seasons 8 and 9, but it's funny seeing Pony on the front page of Fox again. Last time was 2016.

>It appears "My Little Pony," the kid-friendly animated franchise that dates back to the '80s, has gone woke. Netflix has released "My Little Pony: The Next Generation," and the 90-minute film welcomes new fantastical creatures, some of them fear-mongering, with a mission to restore the pony world of Equestria with magic.

>In an apparent effort to send a message to kids about empowerment, unity and reform, Hudgens plays the heroine of the film, an earth pony named Sunny, who teams up with a curious unicorn named Izzy (Kimiko Glenn) to attempt to make peace with outsiders from other communities. Along the way, they meet some pals and band together as a pack of young progressives wanting to make change. "I think that it really reflects the times," Hudgens said of the movie's impact in an interview with ABC 6. "My character believes in inclusion and friendship."

Tbh, this is a bit overblown. It did a a somewhat vague unity message, but it was also vague enough to so it wasn't too overt and didn't directly reference real world politics. For example, while you could interpret the message as "racism is bad", you cold also thnk of it as "no more brother wars" between neighboring eurpean/western countries. Not saying that the progressive stuff isn't there, but it's just not necessarily in your fce or that much worse than the latter half of G4 (afterall, it ws basically the same exact message as Hearth's Warming Eve), so fixating on the politics of it isjust going to enable retards ho actually want it to be about racism.

Ugh, look at all those typos. I need a new keyboard.
Anyways, the real mediocrity in the movie lies in the inconsitent pacing and lack of worldbuilding. the boomers at fox news can take a chill pill. Compared to the "everycreature" bullshit of season 9, this movie was actually quite tame.

Though I can relate to an extent. It's so heavy handed with its messaging and it's highly unlikely that the creators saw it as an anti brother war message. Though, that doesn't change that the ponies aren't that different from each other. So yeah, they're bit late on the ball considering season 8.

Wasn't the previous show literally called "Friendship is Magic"? What a PR lib douche.
Anyway hopefully we get a more based and red commie than Stalin Glimmer. She didn't even read the basics.

I'm probably preaching to the choir here but that's always pissed me off about the socialist lie.
Commies, socialists, marxists, call the jewish scum whatever you want.
For their idea of utopia (them in charge with absolute power) to seem like a utopia to others, they need to pretend a free society where everyone owns their own bodies and labour yet needs to farm food (or generate wealth somehow if they want to buy food) is the most inherently awful and oppressive thing imaginable.
But despite all their claims that a communist society will use its absolute oppressive totalitarian control to create a classless society, that's logically impossible. There will still be a class divide between the ruler, and the ruled, and the ruler's enforcers. There will also be class divides between the different classes and (if any) different branches of enforcers.
If commies really believed what they claimed to believe, they'd learn to farm, pool funds together with other commies to buy some farmland in the middle of nowhere, fuck off over to that farmland with some farming friends of theirs, and lead by example in a genuinely leaderless commune that exclusively farms to eat and has no contact or trade with the "inherently oppressive" outside world and all its "oppressive" post-industrial scientific knowledge/machinery/medical knowledge/weaponry/toys/whatever.
Even then, you could say the "leader" of a leaderless cult is whoever's will is currently being followed, whoever's able to convince the rest of the group to do as he says, think as he wants them to think, and so on.
It's all an entomological impossibility.

I'm gonna side with FOX on this one, or at least the headline.

The movie seems pretty tame and neutral, but that's really just because of the Overton Window shift. We're so far down the slippery slope by now that you can look back up at My Little Pony: A New Generation and think, "well that's actually not bad at all!". It's at its heart lefty revolutionary propaganda.

well, if it's all entertainment, then yeah, a lot of leftism relies on desensitization. perhaps that's part of Republicans and UK Conservatives supporting gay marriage.
