Upcoming LEGO Movie's Villain: President Business
The LEGO Movie is the latest example of Hollywood drumming anti-capitalist messages into its youthful audience.
Conservatives decried the 2011 Muppets reboot for making an oil baron as the enemy. A year later, The Lorax did the same with far greater passion, casting kindly environmentalists against those who dare to create new businesses.
Next year, the LEGO brand will introduce a new villain to millions of children worldwide--President Business.
The character, voiced by Will Ferrell, is the bad guy in the upcoming film, a character aided by another ominous type dubbed Bad Cop (Liam Neeson).
