Judge Not Elmo, Republicans

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: "Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo and star puppeteer for PBS," he's African-American, "'has taken a leave of absence from Sesame Street in the wake of allegations he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy' when he was 45..." Now, Kevin Clash, "the voice of Elmo and star puppeteer for PBS ... 'adamantly denies' the allegations, but "'has acknowledged to TMZ he had a relationship with the young man -- but insists it only took place AFTER the accuser was an adult.'

"The accuser met with lawyers for Sesame Workshop. Clash said, 'I had a relationship with [the kid]. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not.' TMZ added: 'We've learned ... Sesame Workshop lawyers recently met with a 23-year-old man who claims he and Clash began a sexual relationship 7 years ago...'"

At Sesame Street, folks! It's Sesame Street, folks. Sexual abuse, a 45-year-old man with a 16-year-old boy at Sesame Street. Now, what's the proper reaction? (interruption) No, no. No, Snerdley, that's not the reaction. "Who are we to judge love?" Don't you realize that, as Republicans, if we call any attention to this we're being exclusive and intolerant? We Republicans must stand down and no more comment on things like this, because all it does is scare the gay and lesbian crowd away from us.

It shows us to be intolerant and judgmental and rigid. (Eh, bad choice of words in this case, but regardless, you get the point.) We're not supposed to have an opinion on this. The left will handle it. They'll handle it, the ruling class will handle this. They'll deal with it accordingly. It's not for us to say anything about because if we do, I mean, it could also bleed over and offend the Hispanics. It could offend women. It could offend...

Well, any number of people. It's a minor sex scandal. It's a minor gay sex scandal. It's on Sesame Street. The voice of Elmo involved here with a boy, but it could be love, and who are we to deny love and happiness? This is not for us. We are not to go there.

Sexual abuse of a minor isn’t a big deal anymore? Since when?

Now it becomes clear just why the LIB/DIMs so proudly support NPR & Sesame Street.

So Elmo will be the new gay muppet on Sesame Street?!

(I’m so glad I don’t have young children.)

I have no doubt a number of California “film” makers are rushing to capitalize on this story. Dark skin and an Elmo-like voice will give “actors” the inside track.
