The face of the left's propaganda.


More left wing high-jinks. Using a lovable annoying ass puppet to de-cry a travel ban designed to keep America safe.

www.dailywire.com...#

Proving once again that there is no place you will find a happier leftist than in that influential sweet spot between parent and child, proving once again that during a month of extraordinary lows, CNN will always find a new barrel bottom, in the wake of President Trump's 9-0 Supreme Court triumph, the leftwing cable news network decided to use popular Sesame Street puppet Elmo as a propaganda tool against President Trump's temporary travel ban.


American kids are just like immigrants kids says Elmo. Kids should not be exposed to this kind of propaganda.


Popular “Sesame Street” character Elmo sympathized with refugee kids in an interview Monday with CNN, remarking that they are just like kids in America.

Elmo was part of a panel including CNN reporter Clarissa Ward, Sherrie Westin from Sesame Workshop, and David Miliband from the International Rescue Committee.

“Did you find that the Syrian little girls and little boys were a lot like your friends here in America?” Ward asked Elmo.

“Yeah, they really were,” said the “Sesame Street” character. “It was very interesting because they like to play and learn just like Elmo and all of his friends at Sesame Street.”



CNN or Elmo never mention this is a way of vetting the immigrants coming into the country . Ones sided BS-for shame CNN-Elmo.


At no time during the 15-minute segment did CNN or Elmo inform the public of the fact that Trump's temporary ban is meant to improve vetting procedures for refugees coming from countries designated by the Obama administration as especially risky when it comes to seeding refugees with terrorists. In other words, the pause is meant to keep American children safe from the Islamic threats that have become part of daily life in Europe.


And for your viewing pleasure-the whole crap fested affair of CNN using puppets to politicize your kids.

Where does Big Bird stand on this issue? His wings aren't strong enough for him to fly so he's never had to migrate anywhere.

All media can be used as propaganda. Probably less than 1% of the media is objective and based solely on facts

What a horrible thing to teach kids.

(I'm being sarcastic if you can't tell.)

More propaganda - this time aimed at kids... all the while whilst they encourage violence against political enemies. I used to think CNN were the mouth piece of Democrats, but maybe there are the mouth piece for ISIS after all.

Of course they are "like" American kids. But their parents may not be. No mention of the reason for the travel ban. But that's ok right?

Yes, this is disgusting, how dare Sesame Street teach kids not to be bullies and racists!

When will this sick filth end!


Also, OP has no source for this story. And apparently doesn't understand what 'left wing' means. Is this just alt-right soundbite day again?

Don't LIKE guns? The RIGHT always says: "Don't BUY guns".

Don't LIKE CNN or Elmo? ... Don't WATCH.

Conservatives have plenty of "alternative" right-wing indoctrination centers.

Usually, they have steeples.

The video at the bottom of the op is elmo on CNN.
Trying to get kids to watch CNN?

I dont care either way but indoctrination comes from all media so its just a matter of raising your kids and choosing what you watch.


And to the rest of you..
Still playing that right left game framing every topic onto the spectrum deciding a story or poster is right and the right siders come in like see! And the lefters are like this is fake!

Its just a story about elmo telling american kids that syrian kids are kids too. Whatever guys keep fighting amongst yourselves like children.

There is a lot more context to this story than just CNN using Elmo for propaganda. It's all part of a program they are trying to gather support for.


Elmo went to Jordan as part of a pilot program with Sesame Workshop and the International Rescue Committee. The two organizations are partnering to provide preschool education along with educational materials to refugee children across the Middle East.


www.cnn.com...

SS is known for helping charities and starting their own programs, such as support for military families.

I think this is nothing to worry about.

Well, if you ever have kids, you're welcome to send them on a field trip to Syria so they can play with all the Syrian kids that will be happy to receive them and certainly not stone them to death just for being American.

The source is literally right there, directly from CNN, for anyone to watch.

Am I wrong or did they not even mention the travel ban???

So is it propaganda every time refugees are mentioned in a positive light or if someone mentions the fact they are in a crap situation??

Unless I'm wrong (not impossible lol) they never even mention the travel ban and the op is saying that anytime people mention the plight of refugees it is propaganda.

Must just all be a huge coincidence.

The ban is to vet the immigrants. It is a good thing.
