A setup by Romney to try to get PBS’s funding pulled?
You clearly don’t understand people. Romney is a genuinely NICE man, regardless of what you think about his business strategies or his politics. He would not do something that would destroy a person’s life in such a horrid manner.
On the other hand, the people surrounding Obama (and maybe Obama himself) are rotten, evil, miserable people who would hurt anyone for any reason if it helped them get ahead.
That may be part of your problem. If you don’t know how to judge people, life is surely going to be difficult. Because that leaves you a sitting duck, a target for all the predators out there. That explains a lot.
What a psychotic idea! You need medication and a looooooot of therapy to cure your problem. And really, I am not sure that would help~!
Why do we need PBS or NPR?
BTW, if Romney could “set up” somebody, don’t you think he could pick a better target then the pedo behind Elmo?
TD MO and Turds for Creepy Crowley….who probably plays with puppets in strange and sexual ways….
A gay puppeteer? Never would have beleived it.
A gay puppeteer with a bent for pedophilia yet.
Previous investigations have indicated that the ratio of sex offenders against female children vs. offenders against male children is approximately 2:1, while the ratio of gynephiles to androphiles among the general population is approximately 20:1. The present study investigated whether the etiology of preferred partner sex among pedophiles is related to the etiology of preferred partner sex among males preferring adult partners. Using phallometric test sensitivities to calculate the proportion of true pedophiles among various groups of sex offenders against children, and taking into consideration previously reported mean numbers of victims per offender group, the ratio of heterosexual to homosexual pedophiles was calculated to be approximately 11:1. This suggests that the resulting proportion of true pedophiles among persons with a homosexual erotic development is greater than that in persons who develop heterosexually. This, of course, would not indicate that androphilic males have a greater propensity to offend against children.
considering the low-incidence of people who choose to go gay as opposed to those that stay normal, I’m inclined to believe the real ratio is much higher overall. that is, if instead of 10% of the overall population the homosexuals (and here I make no distinction amongst their self-proclaimed sub-sets) were equal to that of normal people, then the ratio of pedophilliacs would be even greater, perhaps even exponentially greater. but then I’m no expert.
This, of course, would not indicate that androphilic males have a greater propensity to offend against children.
Yet everyone is ready to believe that all gays are also pedophiles which is patently untrue. I think it is more accurate to note that there are gays and straights, and some of them are pedophiles.
I wonder if this is the same guy IHTM reorted on a while back that quit his job to go back to school for a Master’s then bitched when his school didn’t rehire him? And neither would anyone else. You know , the one sho’s graduate degree was in puppeteering?
Seemed plausible, but I heard only a little while ago, that this guy has been doing Elmo (nyuk nyuk) for many years now. Pulling down a better than middle class income, too. Go figure.
20 some odd years, and no telling how many children he actually preyed upon.
Is big bird involved?
Update: another youth came forward with charges and Elmo has resigned: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/11/20/sesame-workshop-elmo-actor-kevin-clash-resigns/
looks like it’s time for the pinking shears.
In its statement Tuesday, Sesame Workshop said “the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want,” leading Clash to conclude “that he can no longer be effective in his job.”
“This is a sad day for Sesame Street,” the company said.
But a GREAT day for innocent children everywhere!
Okay so either he got a fat paycheck to “recant” which is probably what he wanted, or he lied for what reason? I don’t know… I hope he isn’t apedophile, but this is not a good look.
homosexuals, by definition, have turned away from the Truth. It therefore follows that they have no understanding of what normal people inherently understand. It’s possible that he wanted money. It’s also possible that he’s been lambasted and brow-beaten by other homosexuals, a community which he now apparently feels a part of, into believing he was responsible for attracting the perversion that was foisted on him by the pedophile, and/or confused to the point that he couldn’t remember how old he was at the time he was victimized.
Frankly I’m surprised at anyone who thought that elmo as a character was acceptable. Indeed, I knew this, or something very like, was going to happen when I became aware of it. I attempted then to make the point to people, but was ignored, and in some cases, reviled for stating that very proposition.
It’s important that everybody understand that promises, vows, or oaths to tell the truth, whether in court of law or public opinion mean absolutely nothing to these 2 specifically and the homosexuals (male or female) as a whole. and knowing that barry’s homosexual encounters have not been validated as having happened, nor refuted with veracity (insofar as I’m aware) it is not surprising to me at all that this country is in the shape it’s in at present, morally, economically, socially, or otherwise. Disagree with the truth all you want, but that does NOT change the truth. And before anybody pulls that “what is truth” statement up, let me remind you that pilate went insane.
The unnamed man, now 23, had claimed that Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash had a sexual relationship with him when the accuser was 16 years old, potentially engulfing one of the biggest childhood brands in an underage sex scandal.
“He wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship,” the law firm Andreozzi and Associates, who represent the man, told U.S. media outlets in a statement.
Clash, 52, who had denied the allegations, said in a statement obtained by Reuters on Tuesday: “I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further.”
regardless, and i think the accuser was probably peer pressured into recanting so as to keep ppl thinkin says me street whore educators are perfectly normal, Your still a fag and have NO place in educating children.
damned sexual deviants have done, and are doing more to destroy my nation than the kenyan, doxy (dodge-the-issue) doj holder, and sick state clinton put together.
Lets not get carried away with what little the MSM has fed us. It is the puppeteer, not the character himself. and it does not represent everyone who works on sesame street. Sesame street does some worthwhile work with preschoolers. but as with all tv offerings, it needs to be evaluated by the parents, and the child distracted to other activities if the material being presented is considered inappropriate. As for the puppeteer himself, if he is a pedophile,he can rot in the 9th circle of heall asfar as I care. So I guess I’ll let God take care of the judging since right now it looks like only HE has the truth.
i stand by my original post.
There is a difference between judging between what is good and evil, and condemning to Hell, which is the Judging that is reserved to God.
So seven years ago forty-something Elmo had gay sex with a 16-year-old and that’s considered consensual adult sex? I don’t get it. It’s perverted, wrong, and evil. Go ahead, Sesame Street, try to spin this positive.
From the Trial transcript
Attorney: “Show me on the puppet where the man touched you.”
Boy: “It was the puppet who touched me!”
It is still true that Elmo gets two test tickles at the factory?
When I first saw that buay on Oprah my gaydar went off big time. Then I saw that buay on The Barefoot Contessa and I was like yep he is sooo gay. Never in a million years would I have thought that he was a pedophiliac freak. If someone is trying to blackmail him or something that is really too bad and he should fight for his name but if he is a pedo I have no love for him at all. If it is true that he hired the Sandusky lawyers I say he is a fool.
We have a place set aside for him here at the prison I work at called CHOMO-ALLEY. He’ll have all sorts of buays…to play with.
I seriously hate pedophiles man. I just do. I have no problem with stoning pedophiles whatsoever.
I always thought it was Bert and Ernie….I never suspected Elmo to come out of the closet.
The funny thing is the Libtards are going crazy over a conspiracy theory based on pissed right-wingers trying to get back at Obama after Romney’s loss. Why does the song “You’re so Vain” play in my head?
What? LOLOLOL seriously? are you being serious right now? It would have made sense if this was Big Bird dude, but Elmo? people are stupid.
First Petraeus now Elmo. Who will we look up to now?
And they’re both about the same height.
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL My Mom to this day says that he is a midget.
Less of a target.
Methinks Sesame Street is just trying to keep up with the BBC. 😉
BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three… sorry I really couldn’t help myself.
sorry I really couldn’t help myself…..BBC four….There I helped ya. (not that you REALLY tried to help yourself (insert wink icon here)
BBC Five… BBC Six… OK I am going to stop now…
