Jimmy Failla host of FOX Across America told Fox and Friends that Microsoft is recruiting kids playing Xbox to become climate change activists by updating their software.

Microsoft recently announced that Xbox will automatically update to the Shutdown (energy saving) power option. This one-time update to power settings will reduce power consumption while the console is off, so right-wing MAGA heads exploded.

As I predicted, Fox News jumped into the fray this morning and one of their hosts came up with a new grooming conspiracy theory against the kids.

Fox and Friends host Ainsley Earhardt could barely explain what Microsoft has done with the new updates but as long as she throws in words like "woke" nothing else matters.

"Xbox has announced they are going woke, too, because of climate change that they are adding a new feature to their default settings," Earhardt read. "If you own an Xbox you can upload this new program and it will turn off after so long to save the environment, the power."

"Also they are saying, the energy-saving shutdown feature is going to have a slower boot time," she said. The horror!

Earhardt then read Ted Cruz's idiotic tweet about how they're gunning for XBox after gas stoves and coffee.

These changes are energy-saving and help with lower costs while helping the environment. They have no effect on the XBox or the game, but Fox News' Jimmy Failla yells how it's crazy what they're doing.

"[Microsoft] are trying to recruit your kids into climate politics at an earlier age," Failla claimed. "Make them climate conscious now." (Isn't that a good thing?)

Ainsley was upset she didn't come up with that conspiracy theory herself.

"I didn't think of that! You're right," Earhardt said. "They are coming after the children."

"Of course they are!" Failla screamed.

This is really insane. Republicans' continued use of the youth of America to attack anything that supports the environment, education, health and safety, etc, is now considered a liberal conspiracy to groom children and turn them into climate-conscious consumers. The horror!

Soon they'll say Xbox and Microsoft are grooming your children to change gender, go to drag shows and hate Jesus.

F*ck off.
