Is Nothing Sacred? Another Beloved Children’s Show Is In The Left’s Crosshairs

Parents have had to become much more vigilant in recent years with what our children are exposed to on television.

Obviously, there’s a great deal of violence and immorality on TV these days, but now we can’t even trust that children’s programming is appropriate.

The left controls the media – and even more frightening, they are on a global mission to reinvent every thought and image our children are exposed to.

We’re well aware that the left has been not-so-subtly indoctrinating our children through their favorite television shows.

There are very few programs these days that parents can count on to be safe and appropriate.  Disney has been a major offender in inserting messaging into their programs to fit the left’s progressive agenda.

Mommy Underground has reported several times on the left’s takeover of family programming, and this time, they have their sights set on an established and traditional show that has appealed to both boys and girls for generations.

From references to homosexuality in the live-action Beauty and the Beast, to a lesbian couple adopting a child in Doc McStuffins, to rumors of a lesbian Disney princess in the works, parents are finding we are at a loss as to what we can even allow our children to view in our own homes.

And now, a traditional program with beloved characters is the next target of the left’s agenda.

Thomas the Tank Engine originated as a series of stories more than 70 years ago, written by a father to his young son.  The loveable trains teach responsibility, friendship, and teamwork and came to our television screens in the mid-1980s.

The United Nations itself, a hotbed of leftist propaganda, has now demanded the series be reinvented to be more “inclusive” and “gender neutral.”

Those who are working on “updates” to the series claim that it’s all in good faith.  They say they simply want the characters to be updated to reflect political correctness in terms of gender and race – introducing female trains and trains with different ethnic backgrounds.

The Daily Wire reported:

“The show has undergone an evolution to remain relevant for the next generation of parents and children by opening up the world of Thomas & Friends so children can discover the world around them while being entertained,” the show’s senior producer, Ian McCue, said in a statement.

“The changes and new additions of characters and geographies will make the show more entertaining, inclusive and global – whilst ensuring all the favourite characters and storylines that fans around the world love remain at the heart of the action,” he continued.

The new premise will include Thomas traveling to different countries each week, experiencing the vast world beyond his home on the Island of Sodor.

Sounds completely reasonable, right?

We’re not so sure.  While expanding the cast of characters to broaden the experience seems fine, it also seems to open a door that parents have been forced through far too often before.

Female characters and those with diverse backgrounds have, in fact, appeared on the show before.  So what does the U.N. really want?

And why on Earth is the U.N. – a blatantly progressive global arm of the left which condones and promotes abortion, open borders, sexualization of young girls, and alternate lifestyles – involved in developing children’s programming in developed countries?

Probably because introducing a few new “harmless” characters in the name of a modern update opens up a Pandora’s Box for the introduction of other progressive ideology.

How long will it be before one of the new trains is “gender fluid” or acts in an overtly homosexual manner?  It’s pretty likely these developments are already underway.

In fact, it appears the U.N. is working to implement global censorship and spread liberal propaganda the likes of which we haven’t seen in decades.

Thomas the Tank Engine has come under fire by liberals for years.  They claim it is too “old-fashioned,” too “conservative.”  And the creators of the series, which has been on the air for decades, have opened themselves up to be under the thumb of the most progressive organization in the world.

The Daily Wire continued:

The show also boasts a brand new partner in its progressive efforts: the United Nations, which demanded “Thomas” embrace “gender neutrality” last year.  Now, a team from the United Nations will consult on the show, ensuring that Thomas and friends are appropriately inclusive.

We are not fooled.  Simply using the terms “gender neutrality” and “inclusivity” warns us of what lies ahead – another takeover of a beloved children’s show that will no longer be appropriate for the children it was intended to entertain.

Thomas and Friends recently moved to Nick Jr., owned by Nickelodeon, who is no stranger to pushing the progressive agenda on children.

A notable example was an episode of Bubble Guppies, a show tailored toward preschoolers, which featured drag queen RuPaul voicing a character strikingly similar to Paul’s own public persona.

This is likely only the beginning of the U.N’s global plan to indoctrinate our children by claiming “interest” in their educational programming.

It only takes one step to get their foot through the door.

What do you think of the U.N.’s involvement in a children’s program?  What do you think their hidden agenda is?  Leave us your thoughts and concerns.
