Just when you thought the GOP couldn't get any closer to having those involuntary committal papers signed...

No, but it ranks up there with Jerry Falwell taking on the BBC’s TeleTubbies.

Big Bird.

The GOPers in Congress famously just got through attacking Big Bird, before they took on this new Asian Girl character.

Thats what Kraichgauer meant.

Tinky Winky, of the Teletubbies, supposedly encouraged our youth to be gay.

Big bird is guilty of encouraging youth to get vaccines.

But I am not clear as to what the problem is with his new character that is provoking them to "defund" PBS. She must be awful.

I want to hear these jokers come up with a coherent argument to support their cancellation of Sesame Street.

They're claiming teaching racial diversity is wokeism. The right's hardly even trying to hide their racism anymore.

What is more concerning is when parents think teaching their children about racism = CRT

Something very Orwellian about that.

Indeed! Orwell was a keen student of human behaviour. His stories are as relevant now as they were then.

They can cancel Sesame street for all i care. Not for political reasons but because I dont particular appreciate it when a creative genius dies and their legacy is continued on by soulless corporate entities. I know many a media franchise ends up that way. Doesnt mean i have to like it. Atleast Teletubbies was something new and creative, even though they were probably agents of satan and corrupters of the youth as the fundamentalists pointed out, but at least it was fresh.

Why do I picture some Fox News host wrestling with Kermit the Frog on live TV while screaming "Take this you communist!"?

I thought Tinks was accused of saying a homophobic slur?
