Posted on 07/23/2012 12:03:31 AM PDT by Mozilla
Don't look now, but the Muppets want a divorce. The Jim Henson Company is scrapping its kids'-meal-toy relationship with Chick-Fil-A now that the left-wing pressure is on to boycott the Christian fried-chicken chain, which is offering toys right now from the Jim Henson Creatures' Shop line.
Muppet chieftain Lisa Henson went to Harvard and was president of Columbia Pictures, making her a progressive elite on both sides of the country. They announced on their Facebook page Friday they were strong supporters of "gay marriage" and were donating their Chick-Fil-A proceeds to the gay censorship cause:
The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.

What started as something at least decent got taken over by the phaggots. Who was that gay Muppet?
The Jim Henson Company chickened out...
Henson died of HIV, I believe. No surprises here.
Welll im going to chick fil a all week f them
Well I hate to see The Henson company do this but if you give me the choice between supporting Chck Fil-a or the Muppets, I’m going with the cows. Eat more chicken!!! Don’t let the door hit Snuffy on the butt
pitching (or in his case catching) for the wrong team
Just wow. Gay marriage is a children’s toy issue? How many gay people procreate naturally?
They can say all the idiotic things they want. Almost every Christian I know has gone to chick fil a this week, bet they had a great week.
I’ll make sure to go this week myself. And I’ll think next time before I buy muppet stuff. Mad at both Oreo and JC Penney right now, put some oreos back on the shelf yesterday when I remembered their new “cookie”.
The backlash coming against domestic communists, perverts, baby killers, and homosexuals will be astonishing in its barbarity and swiftness.
All it takes is the right leader and the right message, which is that the leftists have to go, and by any means necessary.
I’ve never had a Chick-Fil-A but after all this crap the last couple of days,. I think I’ll go to the one they just built about four miles from here.
If they have comment cards, I’m going to let them know that they just got a new customer because of their stand.
If their food is any good, I might even go back again.
Henson died of organ failure due to Strep A....responsible for things like strep throat and rheumatic fever....this is not pneumocystis which is associated with AIDS
No...Henson died from the bacteria that causes strep throat. He didn’t go to a hospital until it was too late, likely due to his Christian Science upbringing. He was never gay or an itravenous drug user. He did NOT die of HIV infection.
Looks like “Zoe’s Dance Moves” is gonna be my last association with Le Muppae!
Dammit. My kid carries that doll around like it was an appendage.
I say parents should pack up the toys and send them to the Henson person. I don’t know if it is a he or she and don’t want to offend. Chick fil A could put up bins in their stores for donating the kids meal toys to GLAAD.
Didn’t Mr. Cathy speak out against gay marriage? How does that become ‘spoke out against being gay’? Am I wrong about what he said?
Thanks to all the adverse reaction they're getting, looks like I'll be eating there quite a bit from here on.
Oh, their food is quite good. I had some for the first time last year when I visited Texas. Ended up going a second time with my wife. I wish they had a store up here, but they won’t enter Washington State. Same thing with Cracker Barrel.
I’ve heard tell that some chains won’t come here because the state government and tax code are not ‘business friendly’.
The visuals this conjures up in my imagination are positively disturbing.
“Big Bird” indeed!
There are a lot of national chains we don’t get here despite our proximity to the Chicago Metro Area.
NorthWest Indiana (Gary, East Chicago, Hammond etc) is a very iffy business climate. (Unless of course, you happen to be a crack or meth dealer. And in that case, you’d better be connected to the right gang.)
Just sent them an email.
Bert & Ernie
Ernie is the b%&#Ch. Big cry-baby!
Yes it’s very important to support the marriage of men who put their penises in other mens’ rectums. And Jim Henson will pursue this important agenda by denying a toy to kids who buy a chicken sandwich.
The food is very good. Some of the best fast food around.
I thought all the muppets were in retirement homes, addicted to Oxycontin.
Thanks for putting it in its proper perspective. These homophiles are loathesome.
If I eat at fast food I’ll go to their shop every time except
on a Sunday which is their business.
I’ll eat where I want, etc..
They can keep their Muppet Chinese toys annnd..... do a Henson with them.
Should have been Henson..
arose is a rose.
Not everyone is aware that JC Penny's new president Michael Francis, made the outspoken homosexual Ellen DeGenerate their national spokes (person?).
Sales plummeted and he lost his job quick.
A lot of people have bacterial pnuemonia that aren't HIV.
“Who was that gay Muppet?”
Kermit the fag.
Just get some chicken tenders, pick a sauce, an order of fries and a coke. Don’t try to go on Sunday. ;-)
He died of pneumonia.
WHo are these f2gs thinking they can enlist in their pink war against America or Christians? Some “happy” people who cannot deal with reality. They all do this stuff with creep factor, for political reasons. Gay marriage is creepy.
I have never eaten at Chick-Fil-A but I guess it is time. I may even do it weekly if I like it.
So? Who cares!
So? Who cares!
Children’s TV production has a ridiculous percentage of homosexual employees.
Great. It is time to thank the companies who have the guts to stand up for the country and conservative principals.
I always try to shop that way. That’s one half of the reason I haven’t eaten at a McD’s or BK in almost three years.
(The other half being that their stuff is crap.)
Yeah. The left goes basically Occupy Wall Street when they hate something. Deranged. They protested outside Fox News back when Glenn Beck was there. They then tried a failed campaign against Whole Foods. It goes on and on. Nuts all of them. Now they are trying to attack Chick-Fil-A. Moonbats as well.
Now this really isn’t fair to the Seventh Day Adventists (or Messianic Jewish Christians). Chick-Fil-A ought to give its franchisees a choice of Saturday or Sunday sabbaths.
Ha Ha that's great. What kind of idiot would think DeGeneres would be a good spokesman? Well, maybe for Subaru.....
Big Bird is a homo.
Anthropomorphizing animals and aliens has been one of the left’s best tools for breaking down racial and cultural barriers. The Muppets, the characters on Star Trek, and all the others were designed to make the differences between blacks and whites, and between heteros and homos, seem minor.
The Jim Henson company makes sex toys?
My memory is that Jim Henson died of a virulent blood infection after refusing for days to get medical help because he was a member of the Christian Science Church. It was too late when he did go for medical help. This sticks in my mind because I took sick one evening at our mountain house with terrible shakes. My wife insisted we go home without any delay. Reaching home I passed out and my son and wife drove me to the emergency at a hospital a few blocks from our home. At the hospital I was given some shots which I later learned were a number of antibiotics. I woke up in the hospital where I stayed seven days, What is so intriguing is that when I woke up in the hospital the doctor told me that I had a blood disease like Jim Hensen who died the previous day. It took me six months to get back to anywhere near my previous health. Since then I have to be very careful about getting any blood infections.
