This is a hoot! My Little Pony slams cultural Marxism!
From Brandon Morse at The Federalist:
For instance, the first episode includes a song-and-dance number where the village sings about how great being the same is. During the song, the Pegasus “Rainbow Dash” flies in the air slightly above the others, and two other ponies guide her gently to the ground. This is very reminiscent of the story of Stalin showing a young leader how to keep his people under thumb by cutting taller stalks down to the same height as the others.
Other examples include loudspeaker propaganda with messages like “you’re no better than your friends” and “difference is frustration” blasting repeatedly throughout the village. People who deviate even slightly from imposed rules are thrown into jail for resocialization.
“Equal” is a word that is constantly thrown around during the two episodes, and the writers were clear to paint the word, and even the symbol, with a very sinister brush. A good baker is kept equal, so her muffins equal the deliciousness of muffins from the worst baker in town. The baker laments her muffin’s awful taste, but is glad that she’s no better than every other pony.
The real-life parallels go on, but the real crux of the message comes from the portrayal of the village’s leader, Starlight Glimmer, who personifies today’s social-justice warrior. Using fabricated issues as scare tactics, she keeps her fellow ponies in line with fear and guilt.
Go here to read the rest. I thought the article was probably over the top until I viewed the episodes. This is the most conservative message in a cartoon since Scrooge McDuck used to lecture on the benefits of capitalism!
