NRA TV show depicts 'Thomas and Friends' in KKK hoods

NRA TV show depicts 'Thomas and Friends' in KKK hoods

National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch chose to take children's show "Thomas & Friends" to task for plans to introduce more "diverse" trains, by depicting the talking locomotives in KKK hoods.

The pro-Second Amendment host accused the show's makers of stopping in "Virtue town", and said: 'This is frightful...

Above a chyron reads "SJW's (Social Justice Warriors) now ruining Childhood".

During a Friday episode of NRA TV's online show "Relentless", Loesch voiced her disdain after the popular show that airs in 160 countries around the world announced that it planned on featuring more female and global trains in a partnership with the United Nations. Loesch was especially angry that one of the female characters is from Kenya.

Loesch argued that the show doesn't need ethnic diversity, saying that the show "literally has no ethnicities because they're trains". "Because they're trains, they don't even have skin pigmentation!"

"Oh, was it because, I see it". And the burning train tracks.

Mattel announced Friday that "Thomas & Friends", a Nick Jr. show, would add characters to its newest season from around the world and partner with the United Nations to promote its Sustainable Development Goals.

Loesch continued: 'OK, fine, fair point. "Thomas the Tank Engine has been a blight on race relations for far too long". Clearly this is overdue'.

Then she showed a picture of Thomas the Tank and two of his friends wearing white KKK hoods.

"The new series has 20 episodes and a number of half-hour specials with themes related to traveling and exploring the world", wrote

"I mean, I'm looking at this picture and I'm really, really struggling to understand how in the world there isn't any diversity in any of this".

Mattel, which owns the Thomas the Tank Engine brand, also did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment, but told the New York Times that they "are not associated with images that promote hate and denounce any images of our brands that are being used to convey a message not in line with the values of the company".
