CNN зайклемила мультфильмы ‘Thomas the Tank Engine,’ ‘Paw Patrol’ как фашистские

A CNN article published Friday complained that parents are buying their kids "Thomas the Tank Engine" and "Paw Patrol" toys, despite the shows supposedly having "fascist" undertones.

"Why kids love ‘fascist' cartoons like ‘Paw Patrol' and ‘Thomas,'" wrote parenting writer Elissa Strauss, a regular contributor to CNN.

Strauss noted that "Thomas the Tank Engine" has been labeled "a ‘premodern corporate-totalitarian dystopia‘ in the New Yorker, imperialist and sinister in Slate, and classist, sexist, and anti-environmentalist in the Guardian."

"And yet people—presumably parents—spend $1 billion on ‘Thomas' merchandise every year," she marveled.

"Paw Patrol," Strauss wrote, is "equally polarizing," with outlets like BuzzFeed complaining about "instances of gender and social inequality that go unchecked on the show."
