Who knew?

So, are those cars Thomas the Tank Engine hauls filled with Jews or captured Polish soldiers headed for concentration camps? Are the dogs in Paw Patrol really Gestapo officers? I never noticed, but something sinister must be going on, because lefties are getting triggered like mad: "CNN: ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ and ‘Paw Patrol’ Are ‘Fascist Cartoons’".

Of course, what's really going on is the Left's maniacal compulsion for seeing Fascists everywhere. This way, they get to play both (a) victims and (b) heroes, in the fantasy movies they're constantly running on the screens inside their own heads.

Here are a couple of actual Fascist cartoons, by way of contrast and historical interest - one German, designed to undermine French confidence in their allies; and one Japanese, featuring American imperialist aspirations in the form of an invasion of Japan by Mickey Mouse. Not much in the way of ambivalence, here.
