'Happy Days' Star: Elmo Creator Has Talent, Ignore Sex Abuse Allegations
Breitbart.com ^ | November 21, 2012 | Christian Toto

Henry Winkler of "Happy Days" fame is considered one of the nicest people in Hollywood. You don't hear any horror stories about his on-set behavior, and he's managed to leave the iconic Fonzie character behind to play supporting roles in projects like "Arrested Development" and "Here Comes the Boom."

Winkler's reaction to puppeteer Kevin Clash resigning from "Sesame Street" amid allegations the puppeteer engaged in sexual acts with minors hardly seemed in character. In fact, Winkler's comment is downright ugly.

No one is disputing Clash's talents. Just watch last year's documentary "Being Elmo" to marvel at his many gifts. But this is hardly the "end of story."

Ah yes, the "Polanski" Defense.

Or, for our UK Freepers, the "Savile" Defense.

C’mon guys, it wasn’t “rape rape” - give “Tickle-Me-Homo” a break!.

Good ol’ Fonzie, still able to jump the shark after all these years.

Anything goes as long as that person travels in the right circles.

Winkler jumped the shark years ago. Among all the things I will be thankful tomorrow, one is certainly that I don't have to speak out on the behalf of a pedophile to make myself feel edgy and relevant.

That is the act of a truly desparate and insecure person.

The hags on the The View seemed to think that just because more accusers are coming forth, he should be given the benefit of the doubt until proven guilty. I don’t think they said that about Herman Cain. After all, no liberal could possibly be guily of anything. Just ask the Clintons.

End of story. But not end of sentence. I’d say about 25 years. Sound good, Fonz?

Ah, he isn't actually that talented.

Pretty much anyone can do what he does, as long as you can do retakes.

Brilliance doesn’t excuse molesting children.

The battle over homosexuality has been won by the other side.

They have now moved on to pederasty.

They will use the same arguments (love, consent, human pleasure, not your concern, our side hates, the Bible is mean and a fantasy, etc.) and in about 15 years, the same Middle America which now can articulate no argument against homosexuality will come to also accept pederasty as healthy, wholesome, normal, and natural.

After that, pedophilia. And then, beastiality.

1960 — no-fault divorce, infidelity are okay,
but homosexuality is disgusting
1990 — homosexuality is okay but pederasty
is disgusting
2030 — pederasty is okay but non-consenting
pedophilia is disgusting
2040 — pedophilia is loving and healthy for
the child, but zoophilia is disgusting
2050 — it feels good and is healthy for both
girl and boy and horse and sheep

Here it comes folks. Can you articulate why sex
inside the faithful marriage under God is the only
acceptable form of sexual practice? Can you articulate
this to the non-believer, using reasoning he will
accept?

Then there’s Truman Capote’s “One Christmas”, starring Henry Winkler....

But it wasn’t RAPE rape, right, Whoopie?

Henry is just trying to be ahead of the times. The adult / child taboo is one of the next frontiers they will want to break. Once you believe two males can marry then anything goes. How does a liberal argue for there to be restrictions on actions of two people just because one is a minor?

I was shattered and died a thousand times inside when, as a teenager, I first discovered that my television hero “Fonzie” talked like a sissy and never actually rode his motorcycle. In fact, he was so lame that his motorcycle was a special prop that was pulled by a tow vehicle. Fail of epic proportions!

Throw a rock into a pack of dogs, and the one that yelps the loudest is the one that got hit.
