Skip to comments.Unbelievable: The liberal PC police are now going after Thomas the Tank Engine
Posted on 07/23/2014 6:38:45 PM PDT by BulletBobCo
Weve grown accustomed to senseless liberal logic insinuating that anything that has to do with the color spectrum is somehow racist or racially charged, however; the most recent attack by The Guardian filth-spiller, Tracy van Slyke, is so stupid it just made me chuckle.
Check out what she said about the demonic Thomas the Tank Engine.
From The Guardian:
For the record, all the villains on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines. Id like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke and they are all pumping out smoke its not hard to make the leap into the race territory.
As a kid I watched Thomas all the time, I had a life-sized Thomas and a play board for all the trains to travel around on. I loved trains. Thats why I loved the show. The characters and the plots also instilled a message of friendship and hard work, but racism? Ms. van Slyke must be inhaling some of that racist steam she is ranting about.

STFU Tracy van Slyke
I liked the dude that was always “cross”
Didn’t want to piss that guy off!
My 4 year old grandson loves Thomas the Tank engine. I’ll get him another one.
How long will it take the left to want to take Spongebob Squarepants off the air..after all, he’s a sponge, he lives under the sea..probably polluting the water with all his friends..you know its coming
Anything black is racist. I wonder if 0bama motors will continue to make black cars.
> How long will it take the left to want to take Spongebob Squarepants off the air..after all, hes a sponge, he lives under the sea..probably polluting the water with all his friends..you know its coming
He acts pretty gay though so they’ll probably give him a pass...
How about Mr. Krabs..he loves making money, they will probably want to get rid of his character since he’s a Capitalist
Freudian racism? White smoke = good; black smoke = bad?
The white smoke is steam. It’s pointless to look for deep underlying messages in Thomas.
Yes Sponge Bob is gay.
The Soviet Bolshevik Commies were the inventors of political correctness, created in order to muzzle the masses and to convince them from being critical of the power grabs of elites. It is a highly dangerous self serving concept intended to take power from the masses and give it to the elites.
I always found that show to be way to condescending and was glad my kids didn’t like it. However, the real, hidden issue for the leftist is that Thomas the Tank Engine was written by a Methodist Minister (I Think)
It isn’t the weirdly implied racism the author objects to it is the ever so gently applied Christian morality, and general world view contained in the series that the left doesn’t like.
They are just not smart enough to realize why they don’t like the show and because - for them- everything boils down to skin color they call it racist.
Patrick did ask SB if he wanted to get naked once. I found that a little surprising for a kid’s show.
It's the way of nature. I noticed that my pet bird will eagerly inspect light-colored food, and quickly eat it if edible, but dark-colored or black food doesn't even get the eye. Only a few exceptions like sunflower seeds, which seem to have a built-in attraction.
Steam doesn’t come out the smokestack of a coal burning steam engine, smoke does. The steam is release at the cylinders.
All the weight of the car is carried on BLACK tires!
The BLACK tires take all the abuse and when you are finished with them you throw them away and BUY yourself some new BLACK tires!
Dat be slabery!
You and your car are both racist!
Hey that’s a goodun’
BLACK LUNG Disease......
whats to do Done about THAT??
