CNN has just proven that there are no lows they can’t reach. Even though three journalists had to resign over a fake news story, even though network producers admitted that they were only pushing the Russia conspiracy for ratings, they got even worse. In a recent segment, they used Elmo from Sesame Street to brainwash children into accepting Syrian Refugees.
As most people with common sense can tell you, the Syrian refugee crisis is complex. It brings a hateful, woman-oppressing culture into the United States, it risks ISIS spreading into the United States, it puts our lives in danger. But CNN is getting Elmo to tell children that this is all about caring about the Syrian children or hating them.
In the sketch, Elmo visits a refugee camp in Jordan. “Did you find that the Syrian little girls and little boys were a lot like your friends here in America?” one reporter asked Elmo.
“Yeah, they really were. It was very interesting because they like to play and learn just like Elmo and all of his friends at Sesame Street,” responded Elmo. “Elmo thinks it’s important to know that everybody is the same deep down and that’s very important,” said Elmo.
“It was really sad because Elmo’s new friends told Elmo that they had to leave their homes because it wasn’t safe for them to stay, and that made Elmo really sad and sometimes a bit scared,” said Elmo. See CNN’s propaganda video below.
