Can You Tell Me How To Guilt To Sesame Street?

The ever-popular children's show Sesame Street has added two new muppets, 5-year-old Wes and his father Elijah, to help teach the "ABC's of Racial Literacy" and racism in general. The move represents a growing trend in children's programming to teach that the color of someone's skin is really, really, really important. Which, sadly, is becoming truer every day. 

Sesame Street already had some muppets reflecting "people of color," which is a pretty hilarious descriptor in a world where everyone already sports a different neon-bright color of the rainbow. Although to be fair, now toddlers with white privilege can see with their own eyes that "people of color" have brown skin and bright orange and purple noses. 

The young muppets belong to the "Power of We" Club in which they learn how to become "upstanders" for racial justice, no matter what shop windows stand in their way.

And it would appear that Sesame Street's new racial awareness initiative is already shaping the worldview of those who watch every day. Like, say, Joe Biden...

In his dazed and halting comments to the press recently, Joe Biden declared that Republican initiatives to bring an iota of integrity to federal elections were so freakingly racist that "they make Jim Crow look like...Jim Eagle!"

Which would probably be a really powerful thing to say if anyone knew who the hell "Jim Eagle" is. We assume that he's a racist bird (not to be confused with the racist Byrd, a former Democrat Senator and Ku Klux Klan "Exalted Cyclops") who is even more racist than murderous, lynching Jim Crow, but presumably not as racist as genocidal Nazi bastard Jim California Condor.

And speaking of racism, since suddenly there are no other topics, we again reflect on the tragic wave of hate-crimes sweeping our nation...

With the next syllable out of this guy's mouth, he's going to get his ass kicked so thoroughly that he'll feel like he took a wrong turn on the highway and ended up stranded on Sesame Street after midnight.

Seriously, if you're white and find yourself in a situation like this, you'd do better to fake a sudden heart attack and hope that the Human Resources director calls an ambulance for you to escape in.

Of course, there's always the risk that the Human Resources director might try to use a portable defibrillator on you...but if they were smart enough to pull that off without killing you, they probably wouldn't have to be working in human resources.

How does a guy with a purple nose have a kid with an orange nose? I think Sesame Street may need to answer Who's Zoomin' Who!

M. Mitchell Marmel said...

And I thought that Bert and Ernie singing "Rubber Dickie, You're So Fine" was bad enough...

Frankly, I think Jim Eagle should start showing up on Sesame Street, handing out correction left and right.

As for HR, I am blessedly retired and not planning to talk to another HR dweeb as long as I live.

The Overgrown Hobbit said...

Watching elder-abuse Biden is hard. On the one hand, he probably has it coming... On the other.

Honk Honk?

Rod said...

And you haven't really seen the worst of HR until you see GOVERNMENT HR. Good post, Stilt.

Average Joe Bro said...

Can't wait to see the episode where all the Muppets put on black bloc and burn down the grocery store in thier neighborhood, in their neig- bor- hood!!

Boligat said...

All the more reason to pull the plug on public funding for PBS. Sesame Street can certainly go it alone.

Shelly said...

@Overgrown Hobbit, your post reminds me of a tweet I saw after the "press conference." It said "Overall impression from the Biden press conference: It was well staged but I'm not sure they made a good choice by going open casket."

John the Econ said...

Sesame Street: The unpersoning of MLK continues at warp speed. Next, Sesame Street gets it own Antifa chapter.

This is why the left wants to get ahold of kids as young as possible, so that they can be irredeemably programmed so deeply as to never be able to recover.

Barely-alive Biden: The leftist media is doing damage control over the fact that Biden had to refer to his programming, er, "briefing notes" during certain questions at last week's press conference. I'm sorry, but can you imagine the uproar if Trump or Bush had had to do so to answer any question?

Speaking of Jim Eagle, er, Crow: So the Democrats are now endevouring to eliminate the filibuster because it's a "racist" tool used during the Jim Crow era. So racist, that the Democrats used it how many times during the Trump era? Even Obama defended it.

I'm glad I'm old: I don't worry about my views hindering me because professionally I am well-established and the people who hire me to solve their problems really don't care. But I can imagine the pressure that must be on people just starting out in there careers in a "woke" marketplace. Notice lately that most of the outspoken against the Progressive establishment in academia are almost exclusively older or near retirement?

But then again, perhaps it's easier than I suspect. Since higher education now teaches people by rote instead of how to critically think, a job interview is likely less about what you actually think that just judging your ability to mindlessly regurgitate Progressive pieties.

Ok, ok, ok. Since no one else will say it:
Re: purple nose guy and orange nose kid.
What do you have when you purchase a load of firewood and stack it up in a pile?
I gave up being civil for lent.

Murphy(AZ) said...

I used to think the worst thing to let your little ones watch was Tele Tubbies. It's almost as though the Sesame Street had a "Hold my beer moment" and this is what they came up with.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Mike aka Proof- I'm not sure Muppet genetics are the same as ours. Heck, I don't even think they have genitalia...

@M. Mitchell Marmel- Great, now I'm hearing Ernie singing "Rubber Dickie" in my head.

@The Overgrown Hobbit- I feel no sympathy for Biden. He's still "with it" enough to know the game he's playing...and that it's injurious to our Constitutional republic.

@Rod- My family has some first-hand experience with government HR. It is not a pretty thing...

@Average Joe Bro- I believe that they'll be helped by the feisty new Muppet named "Aunt Teefa."

@Boligat- There is NO reason for public funds to go to anything on PBS anymore. The marketplace will provide without dinging the taxpayers.

@Shelly- That's probably the funniest line I've heard relating to the event!

@John the Econ- I have some experience with early childhood education, and that experience tells me that the Sesame Street experiment is the wrong way to go. How the hell can we teach kids that their identity is inextricably tied to the melanin in their skin (yes, the Sesame Street characters talk about melanin) and expect that to create anything other than division?

The whole Jim Crow/Jim Eagle/filibuster thing is just the latest example of Democrat hypocrisy. But increasingly, the amount of bile that gathers in my throat is becoming intolerable.

And like you, I'm of an age at which I don't need to worry about my lack of woke-ness, but I DO worry that if I'm branded as enough of a monster it could be taken out on my daughter. Because the world is that wicked now.

@Sortahwitte- I honestly don't know the punchline to that joke, but am guessing that you shouldn't share it here. Maybe I'll turn on an anonymizer and do a web search...

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Murphy(AZ)- Teletubbies was freaking weird. I've seen horror movies that scared me less.

Edam Wensleydale said...

@Sortawitte: Don't tell the answer. There's too much at stake. ;-)

Gonzo'57 said...

Stilt, Totally off topic:

In Salem, Oregon Antifa members (self described no less and with Antifa flags) blocked streets, threw rocks at cars and shot them with paint balls while the police stood by and did nothing. That is until one man drew a pistol on the Antifa members as they were closing in on him and breaking the windows in his truck. Now the police spring into action and force the guy to lay down in the street even after he had put his gun down in the truck bed. He was handcuffed. Not sure what happened to him after that.

Oregon has a concealed weapons permit law and hopefully this guy had one but I bet he won't have one for long. How dare he defend his property and well being. If only the chicken shit police had done their job in the first place.

I wonder if ABC's Joy Behar who just last week said Antifa didn't even exist will get fired for blatantly lying on national TV.

John the Econ said...

Yes @Stilton, this is indeed designed to permanently divide.

Not to be outdone by Sesame Street:

'Blue's Clues' Reboot Pushes Transgenderism on Preschoolers

Blue’s Clues, a show for kids between 3 and 5 years old, has endorsed LGBT “pride,” complete with flags for various sexual identities, including pansexuality, bisexuality, and transgender identity.

Just another example as to why if we had kids these days, ours would be a "media free" household. Either that, or we'd be home schooling our family while living on a sailboat far out at sea.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Edam Wensleydale- Damn, I just know that's a clue...

@Gonzo'57- Well THAT story has pissed me off! I'm trying to remember what police policy is when someone draws a non-lethal gun on them? Oh yeah! THEY SHOOT THE BASTARD DEAD, which would have been a perfectly just ending for the antifa goons. On a related note, cops who stand around while the law is broken (and innocents are put in danger) need to find another line of work.

@John the Econ- Holy shit and screw the producers of Blue's Clues. Nothing good can come of this.

Sortahwitte said...

In my years in the USMC, I bet I said "no excuse, sir" many, many times. That fits here.
I should have had those words tattooed on my arm instead of that stupid dancing girl.

The Bee stings again:

Sesame Street Introduces 'Todd', A White Male Muppet Who Is Blamed For Everything

QUEENS, NY—In a courageous new episode of Sesame Street, the puppets teach kids about social justice by introducing a new character, Todd-- a white male puppet who is blamed for everything wrong in the world.

Minutes into the episode, Todd is introducing himself to the other puppets and a prescriptively diverse cast of guest children, when he is confronted by Grover about Todd's culpability regarding a distant ancestor who fought for the Confederacy.

Later on, Todd works alongside the puppet Abby Cadabby to stock the shelves of Hooper’s store with Goya beans. His accidental revelation that he gets paid 30% more than her leads to Abby singing a tearful rendition of ‘Workforce Woes.’

The episode’s final sketch portrays Todd selling cookies without the requisite health warning labels, forcing Cookie Monster into obesity and skyrocketing healthcare costs.

In an upcoming episode entitled "R is for Racism", Todd appears in multiple educational scenarios-- including a math teacher forcing minority puppets to learn 2 + 2 = 4, and an ignorant puppet who thinks some cops might be good.

In a particularly jarring sketch, Todd is caught teaching kids to face life’s unfairness with hard work, self-sacrifice, and hope for the future.

"And if she happens to sense "impending doom" at about this time every month, well, who are we to judge? After all, you can't spell "premonitions" without PMS."

One of your subtle? best, sir.

Slightly apropos... Know why it's called "PMS?"

"Mad cow disease" was already taken.

Stilton - Just to let you know - a Bing search no longer let's me go to this website. They have either downrated you or removed the link. I guess cancel culture is now coming for you.

@Anonymous- Well sonofabitch! I just tried the Bing search and it shows my Facebook page, but not my blog! Bastards. Thanks for giving me the heads up!

Newsflash: Two sisters were dropped in to the US from atop a tall border wall. The dropper? A smuggler refereed to as a Coyote.

Newsflash: Four people in Orange, California were shot death by a man who had
a relationship with the woman her killed, her 9 year old son and two others. His
name? Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez.

To the tune What a Wonderful World.

Arab here,
shot ten white folks.
And everyone's mad,
at a cop who is a joke.
And I say to myself,
why did I come back here. *

* was US Army stationed in Berlin 1977-1981

An Hispanic male,
kills four folks.
And a black guy,
beats an Asian to a pulp.
But half of the news.
Is a psycho joke.

Yikes! From Clearance Jobs

The U.S. Army has a readiness problem the likes of which it has not seen since the draft, and one which threatens to undermine the entire institution. This problem is called the Army Combat Fitness Test. The ACFT was designed to improve the physical fitness levels of soldiers. Because it was so poorly planned, however, 84% of women failed it straightaway, and data is scarce as to whether things have improved. This is a big problem because failure of a graded physical fitness evaluation renders a soldier ineligible for promotion, locked out of specialized training that might otherwise improve a soldier’s acumen or skill-set, and ultimately, risks seeing them kicked out of the Army entirely.

Verse from tune then: Sometimes it's hard, to be a woman.
Verse from tune now: Sometimes it's hard to be a feminist.

My tweet

Yikes ---an 84% failure rate?  Trans recruits NOW. Individuals with male bio thinking they are female & WHALA, the 84% failure rate is history. If I was a tin horn (N Korea, Iran, Russia, China) I'd make my move NOW!

OK, we had the following in the span of a week.

Boulder shooter – Arabic

Old woman beater of Asians – African American out on parole for killing his mother 20 years ago (White Privilege my ass)

Murderer of 4 in Orange county – Hispanic.

Verse from tune then: Sometimes it's hard, to be a woman.
Verse from tune now: Sometimes it's hard to be a LIBERAL.

Newsflash: Moves are being made to ban the phrase “breast feeding” and replacing it with “chest feeding”.

To the tune Beach Baby

Do you remember how we hated Trump,
We couldn't wait till the fucker was dumped
And guess who many went for instead?
A guy so old,
might as well be DEAD.

Then the LIBERALS they got their way,
Massive trans boys with the girls they'd play,
Holy crap
Now the border's under siege each day
as Russia, Iran, China

Nut country
nut country,
every day.
We hear the weirdos and wackos,
it's called CHEST FEED
don't say BREAST FEED,

Nut country
nut country,
get rid of cops?
as the criminals toss out their HIGH FIVES,
They'll loot and shoot,
get free Nike's and boots,
they'll steal.

Oh, they hope this shit it never ends.
Oh No Oh No
If Kamala get's in---it will be the end.

Michael Riles said...

Holy Crap---this NOAH GREEN guy that rammed a capital policeman and killed him
(Billy Evans) today doesn't look like no PROUD BOY to me. So, whenever a minority kills someone (i.e. Boulder/this) or beats an old Asian woman (as we saw in New York) it is and ALWAYS will be MENTAL ILLNESS?

Wow, the All-Star game is leaving Atlanta due to the state requiring an ID to vote. So,
democrats entice illegals to flood the country and then say you shouldn't have to show ID to vote. OK LIBTARDS---put two and two together. Don't you hate it when they insult your intelligence?

Michael Riles said...

2 tune Pop Goes the Weasel

Minorities are making the news
Shooting, beating robbing a lot.
Don't matter the color of skin.

An Arab kills ten in Boulder.
Hispanic shoots four in Orange.
In DC a Farrakhan groupie.
