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.

“Childrens TV production has a ridiculous percentage of homosexual employees.”
Because it’s a target rich environment.
Amazing how many of this country's 'problems' seemed to be spawned at Harvard...
Get their ice cream. It’s the best.
Well that’s a pro homosexual post using standard left wing talking points.
No, Blacks and homosexuals aren’t comparables.
The differences between blacks and whites ARE minor, the differences between heterosexual and homosexual are huge. One is normal and procreative. The other is abnormal and destructive.
Really? Can you cite a source on that?
That is Jim Henson’s loss, not Chic-O-Fil’s.
Try their spicy chicken cool wrap.... delicious!
He died around the middle of May in 1990. I recall because my daughter was born the day after he died. Sammy Davis Jr died around the same time. The joke around the house was if reincarnation was real...who would my daughter be? As it turns out she can neither sing, dance, or do puppets.
Take the doll and tell your kid that obama took it in lieu of taxes.Never too young to get a clue.
And if we would have gone to the Doctor, he would have lived..
Good people should support their local Chick Fil A. To be honest, I’ve never tried them. Is their food good?
Kids are likely to loose the allure of Seseme Street by about age 12 , but they’ll be eating chicken the rest of their lives.
The gays boycotting Chik-Fil-A is like them pissing in the Mississippi River and expecting the water level to rise.
I doubt that a shortage on Henson toys will negatively affect many children, but indoctrination into the homosexual world will.
His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
“Jim Henson Company, which has created so many characters that children love, would be such a strong supporter for homosexuality.”
From the first year of “Sesame Street” it was clear that it was very left-leaning. It was banned in our house for my younger siblings. That’s how “they” get a grip on citizens — get ‘em while they’re young with seemingly innocent stories, characters, etc.
Chick-Fil-A should’ve done their homework before agreeing to the unholy alliance in the first place.
Hey Newbie - try Monday - you’re covered! ;-)
Can you provide any evidence to support that belief, or did you just invent it?
Posting your derogatory personal beliefs about another person may not qualify as "slander" under the laws of these United States, but it definitely qualifies as "bearing false witness" (which thou shalt not do).
I expect such behaviour from CBS/NBC/ABC/CNN/Etc.
FR should be better than that.
Henson was married and had kids. He died from a really nasty lung infection, that reached that state because he left it untreated. It wasn’t just pneumonia; he had something resembling scarlet fever.
“I wish they had a store up here, but they wont enter Washington State. Same thing with Cracker Barrel.”
Henson did NOT die of HIV.
It is NOT Henson causing the problem but his daughter Lisa - a real Leftard.
Henson was never considerd a Left wing nut job.
Unfortunately, when he died, the powers-to-be decided to implement real leftist-socialist-politically correct BS into their programming.
This is when we lost cookie monster, grouch and a host of others in favor of the androgynous ELMO. This is when Sesame Street lost it.
On another note...I wish they had a Chick-Fil-A here in Rhode Island, but this state is real Leftarded.
Oh yeah I agree. Apparently his Christian Science upbringing deterred him from doing so. (interesting side note-— my dad was raised in a CS home. I guess it didn’t take since he ended up being a saw bones)
We’ll head to Chick-Fil-A for our weekly lunch out this week.
They’re trying to recruit younger and younger:
