Skip to comments.White House teams up with Sesame Street
Posted on 09/01/2009 11:21:42 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
Three agencies are teaming up with Sesame Street to prepare school children for the new threat of the H1N1 virus.
The White House announced Tuesday morning that the Homeland Security, Education, and Health and Human Services departments are enlisting the help of Elmo and Gordon from the long-running educational show to teach children how to avoid H1N1, also know as the swine flu.
President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with the secretaries of those three agencies and other administration officials later Tuesday afternoon to discuss the threat.
Elmo, Gordon, the Sesame Workshop and the federal agencies will try to teach children, through public service announcements, steps they can take to prevent contracting or spreading the potentially deadly flu strain.

I wonder if Elmo will announce his endorsement for 2012?
The normal seasonal flu is also generally classified as H1N1. Such a basic point glossed over...
Am I the only person who sees the word “hiney” in H1N1? For real, that’s what springs to mind when I first see it.
Pig flu shouldn't be much of a stretch.
LMAO! Elmo will say yes he can!
Like little kids needs to be scared about the flu.
PARENTS can educate their children to wash hands!
You may become ill
>>Am I the only person who sees the word hiney in H1N1?
Well, at least with children, “O” will be on his own intellectual level. AND
THEY won’t have embarrassing questions
THEY won’t carry signs and protest
THEY don’t dont have that wealth of experience and education which creates that undeniable gut-level aversion and nagging reservation about things just too good to be real
THEY dont have the kind of inquisitiveness adults possess as to just HOW THE HELL such a flim flam POS can pass for the President of the United States of America!!!
“teaming up with Sesame Street’
Finally, we now know where Obama gets his advise and ideas.
LOL...now it is Acorn Street.
I wonder how they’ll use this to push for socialized medicine via our children.
Will a Health Panel decide that Elmo is too much of a drain upon Sesame Street’s health care system and deny treatment?
We all know that our government has to tell our children to wash hands or they may get the flu because the marxists think they have to control all.
As well as Obama’s education scheme is to keep schools a COMMUNITY place and open all the time because parents are TOO BUSY.
UNDERSTANDING OBAMAS EDUCATION VISION
But then the hype is building, isn't it ... I wonder why?
Get the news while it's still there. Story here
...the same way they always have. It's sold as "helping others" and "sharing".
The ugly part about having no CHOICE in the matter is conveniently hidden, not to mention the larger consequences.
They will show all the sesame street characters sick and Elmo not getting healthcare cause his mom lost her job. Then they will say all should get health care as a right and donald trump will pay for it and Ted Kennedy died for all of our sins and 0bama is messiah.
I wonder if they’ll discuss this on “This Week with George Snuffleupagus.”
That’s a pity,even using kids’ shows to push the propaganda. Not that there isn’t a virus out there, but just my opinion, the excitement is over hyped.
Could have been MADTV:
Of course Mad TV was a lot more conservative than SNL, relatively speaking that is. So they had to cancel it.
It is obvious it is hype.
Yeah, I’m wondering that too.
I mean the CDC is saying this isn’t as bad as the WH is making it out, we’ve already had it hit our school (and my kids) and it was less of a problem than that Chinese flu that came around a few years back, but they are going out of their way to frighten people.
I’m not just skeptical about this, I’m starting to concerned. Not because of fear of the flu, but fear of this regime’s reaction to a supposed epidemic.
LMAO it is. LOL
Come and play everything’s A-OK. Can ya tell me how to get...how to get to ACORN Street?
Statler: "Obama wants to pull your plug!"
Waldorf: "Don't mess with my health care!"
"Please, oh wise government death panel, please reconsider your decision. Without a new kidney, I'll die a slow and painful death..."
"Don't bother, it's a recording..."
Let’s see. It already hit in our area in March-May. It started here before it became a big deal in the news. We had it a few weeks before it hit the news. It was a very bad flu. One child died from it at our sons’ previous school. That child was already in poor health. We never went to the physician over it. Why would we unless we were at death’s door? It’s a virus. We thought it was just a seasonal flu at the time. Our pediatrician’s office has been overwhelmed with paranoid patients since the media hype over this flu started.
but I’ll bet they promote Obama politics on ACORN Sesame Street.
did Obama give a press conferance on swine flu
won’t be long before they start teaming with shows liek htis to indoctrinate the kids like they do in Palestine
Oh the Marxist is a person in your neighborhood...
In your neighborhood....
In your neighborhood
and the Community Organizer is a person in your neighborhood...
They’re the people that you meet,
Bustin’ heads out in the street,
They’re the people that you meet
There is a big problem brewing here, a crisis problem which may need strict fast government action -— At least that's what I see, if in fact they can gin up the hysteria.
In other words, it's looking a lot like another Rahm manufacturered setup 'crisis'.
Yeah I remember his inept crew putting out that 90K deaths figure. They are idiot fear monglers.
Yes that was the presser. It showed millions would be hospitalized. The whole thing was designed to panic people.
Sunny day, flushing the cash away!
Im so happy my grown kids didn’t like these shows anyway my daughter hated barny as well she said she thought big bird was a dork !
May be a new way to funnel money to PBS, which is having serious funding problems. Still, better they coach how to wash and where to sneeze than “Heather Has Two Mommies”.
They'd like to have the kids begging their parents to let them have the Flu Shots!!!
Why this sudden attempt of Obama/governemtn talking directly to our children & by-passing parents?
other than the dollar tanking which i expect it to do....i i think they are trying to take over the news to keep Obama from sliding anymore in the polls.. he may be losing it...but of course i know they dont mean this country or its citizens well....here it is....administration knew about release of lockerbee bomer.
Health Care Reform is like Mr. Snuffleupagus. Only Obama can see it, and the rest of us thinks it's imaginary!
Aww.. they’re trying to get to the kiddies while they’re real young.. just like the homosexuals.
And if ever there were a more arrogant narcissist, I haven't seen him.
I think he is trying to gin up pig flu panic.
Why this sudden attempt of Obama/government talking directly to our children & by-passing parents?
