Enough of the Politicization of a Song Which is Associated with Childhood


Suddenly everything is being centered around Margaret Thatcher. I know that she was probably the most famous British PM to date but using a children's song for political point making is wrong and immoral. When I was younger I used to sing along to 'The Wizard of Oz' and the sight of quirky munchkins jumping around demands that this song be remembered for being a jolly and great piece of acting, singing and dancing. Let us    just remember Toto, Munchkins and Dorothy.

  1. Indeed. As the Sun Says:

    "MUNCHKINS from The Wizard Of Oz last night slammed protesters using film song Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead to mock the death of Baroness Thatcher.
    Ruth Duccini, 94, and Jerry Maren, 91 — who sang the ditty — said: “It’s terrible.”
    Saddened Munchkins said it was monstrous to hijack the song — as the BBC fudged a decision whether to play it."

    And it's not every day one sees the phrase "Saddened Munchkins" in the context of political discourse ...
