  • Conservative hysteria over Elmos visit to Syrian Refugees?

    Plenty here have seen Sesame street, a classic staple of American culture. As a means to try and cheer people up perhaps someone or group brought Sesame Street to a Syrian refugee Camp in Jordan,



    Cnn did a interview involving the character Elmo and Breitbart seemingly reacted in a negative manner calling the interview bizarre, while Tucker Carlson of Fox news brought on guests to mock the entire thing.... Did these conservative outlets not see the obvious attempt by CNN to simply play up on a good piece....I hope anyone who watched the Fox news segment or read the breitbart piece are not against CNN joining in on the Elmo thing which is a design to help Refugees in Syria. Looking at the big picture though Fox is going up the wrong tree here and could have criticized CNN in a different manner...Because after all nothing wrong with trying to cheer people up at refugee camps and bringing American culture of love and peace to Syrian refugees.

    The US Army Ranger David Barno supports the Elmo idea as it is yet another tool to be used against ISIL. The refugee children enjoy Sesame Street as do most people..... well the ISIL types do not like the unifying message of Sesame Street.


    Bringing furry American Muppets to Syrian refugee camps may sound like the fuzziest kind of soft power. But it could offer a glimmer of hope to children whove been robbed of a childhood. And retired military and former government officials say it could have another big side effect: helping starve terrorist groups like the Islamic State of its next generation of fighters. Cookie Monster, Elmo, and friends, that is, could pack as powerful a punch as a drone strike.

    I think its a brilliant idea and phenomenally positive, said David Barno, a retired U.S. Army ranger and former commander of the U.S. military mission in Afghanistan. The military alone could never root out terrorism, he told FP, while childhood education is one of the most potent and underappreciated antidotes to extremism.

      My initial comment is that that little girl is quite expensively dressed for a "refugee camp".

        Where's the conservative hysteria?

          You people know that the Palestinians were using Cartoon Characters as anti-Israel propaganda? They are broadcast outside Palestine. There are a number of sick people in the Middle East that will stoop that low. They should not use Cartoon Characters for propaganda.

          Imagine Mickey Mouse spouting "Death to Zionists!" and worse in Arabic.

            What makes you think the 2-3 yards of printed fabric that she's wearing is expensive? Do you think that because her clothes are clean?

                Elmo is a anti-Semetic gay socialist Muslim under the employ of Putin and must not be trusted. Unnamed sources have have indicated that Elmo had secret meetings with Flynn while employed by the parties with ties to people with ties to organizations that may have had contacts with someone close to Putin, or the Kremlin, or to the former KGB, or to Ukraine and Trump is racist.

                  What's the big deal? A fictional character that's not too bright and a bit silly visits refugees. It's sort of like having Mohammed show up...

                    Whatever ...

                    They ("refugees") still need to stay over there and fix their part of the world, not come here and infect us with Sharia crappola and Islamic disregard for our secular concepts of personal liberty and freedoms.

                    Clean your Islamic House of Shame and Degradation before coming over here to spread more religious faux philosphy of human divisions and theological exclusions. We've got enough already!

                        Yes I am aware of the hatred that some Muslims and Jews of the middle east have for the other. And thats why Sesame street is the answer to Muslim or Jewish hatred that comes out of the Middle east.

                          I agree with the US Army Ranger Mr Barno who supports bringing Sesame street to the Syrian refugee camp in Jordan..Its a means of fighting intolerance with American love and respect.

                            Our friend Pruitt pointed out the intolerant Palestinian cartoons from about a decade or so ago... Now in the modern times in Afghanistan the muppets are bringing in tolerance and an increase in literacy among Afghan children.



                            The hatred that the Taliban taught is being countered by American love and tolerance....and kids everywhere can catch on to the type of tolerant message of love preached by Sesame street.

                            Army Ranger Mr Barno acknowledges the benefits of bringing Sesame Street to war torn countries. The facts are that when the Sesame Street cartoons come into any land like Jordan refugee camps and Afghanistan ...the literacy rates in those lands increase. This is exactly what the free people of the world have been asking for... So rather then folks generalzing against all Jews or Muslims..what I and so many others seek to do is show the facts on the ground that for example in Afghanistan there has been a proven way to increase literacy and tolerance among Afghan children and that is through Sesame street which many Afgan parents adore and are happy that their children have something to look forward to,

                              Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman
