It’s an Obama World… Sesame Street to Introduce a Poor, Starving Muppet to Educate on Growing Number of Starving Children

It’s an Obama world.
Meet “Lily” the starving muppet.

Here’s something else Barack Obama and democrats can be proud of.

With a record number of Americans on food stamps, record unemployment, increased debt and record poverty, Sesame Street will introduce a poor, starving muppet to educate on the growing number of starving children in Obama’s America.
Inside TV reported:

Sesame Street has a new muppet who is hungry for more than just cookies.

The iconic kids show is set to unveil a new impoverished puppet named Lily, whose family faces an ongoing struggle with hunger issues. Lily will be revealed in a one-hour Sesame Street primetime special, Growing Hope Against Hunger, which is being sponsored by Walmart. The special will star country singer Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly Williams Paisley, as well as the Sesame Street Muppets.

“Food insecurity is a growing and difficult issue for adults to discuss, much less children,” said the Paisleys in a statement. “We are honored that Sesame Street, with its long history of tackling difficult issues with sensitivity, caring and warmth asked us to be a part of this important project.”

The special will share the stories of real-life families to raise awareness of hunger issues in the United States, as well as strategies that have helped these families find food.

    Manipulation of the youngest, most maliable minds – an offensive move (pun intended).
    Sesame Street is a tool of PBS. Our tax dollars at work.
    FWIW, as a kid, I never caught the charm of Sesame Street. The gritty inner city character of the program was a real turn-off. Perhaps there are other children that automatically get negative vibes from this manipulation and are turned off by a show enhancing poverty as a form of entertainment.
    2012 can’t come quickly enough.

    Isn’t food important? Why not “universal food coverage”? If politicians and employers had guaranteed us “free” food 50 years ago, today Democrats would be wailing about the “food crisis” in America, and you’d be on the phone with your food care provider arguing about whether or not a Reuben sandwich with fries was covered under your plan.

    –Ann Coulter

  • Taqiyyotomist

    The so-called food crisis is actually a responsible behavior crisis. You don’t NEED a 3G phone plan. You don’t NEED an XBOX360. You don’t NEED all those drugs and all that booze. You don’t NEED that big-screen TV and the DISH Network.

    Tell that to the hungry kids. Maybe they’ll tell their irresponsibly-spending parents.

  • Lies and deceit. School breakfast & lunch.

    Nanny state. Reaching for the kids for the parents

    Have turned agaist this a$$hole n chief butt munch.

    Typical statist maneuver.

  • MAJ Mike

    Perhaps The Childrens’ Television Workshop (holders of the Muppets/Sesame Street trademarks) should redirect/”spread around” some of the millions of dollars of their profits to assist these “starving” people. However, I thought that childhood obesity was the big problem in the U.S., at least according to the First Wookie.

    Glad I no longer have young children.

  • ohiochili

    This news will be a serious concern to Michelle O. Everyone knows all kids are fat.

    Will this character ask all kids to donate their veggies to food banks? (as my sons would have probably suggested to me.)

    Apparently, it is never too early to start the guilt process.

  • Ohio Granny

    Because, what children really want to watch, more than their video games or cartoons, is a hungry kid, and maybe toss in some dying polar bears. riiiiiiiiiiight. so when they run screaming from the room, get tummy aches, and can’t sleep at nitey night, should we call Michelle Obama and ask her if it is okey dokey to give these hungry Lilys all those french fries we gave up? Just tell your children, eat your vegetables, there is a Lily out there who would love to have that brocoli !

  • Ohio Granny

    And another thing….
    Ya know, this smacks of AttackWatch. Wonder if the Obama and Progressive propaganda machines are behind the scenes going, hmmm, wonder if we should toss in some red/black/white images in the background, just to make it more stark?

  • Oh good grief. This is propoganda that would make the Nazis proud. How soon can we throw Odummer and his friends out of the White House?

    ‘Cause you can bet that the show won’t explain to children that the reason so many people are unmployed and starving is due to Odummer’s actions. “Kids, sometimes evil people hurt other people. President Obama is one of those people. He hates America, and if you like America, then he hates you too.”

    Yeah, they’ll never say it but I can dream.

  • Tom Smith

    Hope food stamps and WIC is discussed.

    These are the leaders of the Nanny Estate. Childish spoiled babbies in aged adult form. Thumb sucking grown up men and women who still go to bed in fannel pajamas with Hallow Kitty print…hugging elmo dolls to sleep……

    ACORN Behind Occupy Wall Street protests, via JudicialWatch:

    In other words: Obama and Soros behind protests, funded by TARP I and TARP II, i.e. your tax dollars.

    It’s an Obama world.

  • Michael

    I thought all the muppets on Sesame Street were poor. After all, Bert and Ernie have been wearing the same outfit since the 60’s.

  • Sesame Street needs to stick to entertaining little toddlers and teaching A,B,C’s and stay out of indoctrinating our kids. Turn it off! There are other programs for kids if we just put a tiny bit of effort into it…lets go back to entertaining our kids with David & Goliath, Bugs Bunny, ect – the stuff we used to watch when we were little that didn’t have a political agenda.

  • donh

    Yes Taq, talk about puppets. This Occupy Wall Street is another Soros managed ” Velvet Revolution” . Foreign entities are foamenting a revolution right within our own borders and we do NOTHING. What these velvet revolutions achieve is a transformation of communist dictatorships into a more nefarious network of shadow government ruled by organized crime king pins operating under the control of communist ideology. ….

  • Multitude

    I saw this in yesterday’s citizens action bulletin from the Ministry for Citizen Behavior Compliance and Agenda Action Support. I actually thought it made a lot of sense in context with the increasing citizen action instructions directing support of the market disruption activities necessary to provide the grounds for the October Second Revolution.

    We received the academic bulletin instruction yesterday as well that instructed my colleagues and I to release our students to the local OWS rallies, road barricades and blockages, corporate CEO house stalkings and other activities planned for the college kids. I’m hopeful we’ll see the high schools released to step up the energy levels since we haven’t seen a single torched car yet and it’s pretty embarrassing we can’t manage what a dozen French Youths would do in an evening. But they have an authentic impoverished Political Response Class that can be called upon in a heartbeat, burning cars, buildings, shutting down large sectors of the economy and useful scaring the crap out of the middle class so that whatever policies the elite power interests require can be immediately effectuated.

    This Lily muppet seems to represent a smart move for outreach by the to the elementary kids by the Ministry, helping the White House and its partnership with Media Matters and other partners to engage the younger folk in communitarian advocacy and radical socialist action.

  • myohmy

    Are we starving or are we fat? Do liberals just want to milk the federal government? They should make up their mind.


    when is the gay muppet and transgendered and mooslum muppet coming….what a fukken joke

  • Bunni

    OMG, it’s cause of HIM that we’re STARVING, ffs.
    What’s next, the pedo muppett?? If obumbles gets his way, there will also be the unwashed, marxist protestor muppett……plus don’t forget his fav,
    The gay, bathhouse fisting perv muppett?

    Isn’t that what the one that lived in a trashcan was supposed to be? What’s after that
    the hooker lying in the gutter turning tricks muppett? (h/t Jay Leno….lol)

  • Mark1957

    What is next, Elmo’s “babies Mamma” muppet?

  • Sam Stone

    It is only fitting that SS has representation by one of Obama’s New Americans.
    Dependent, poor and relying on others for their daily bread!

  • Taqiyyotomist


    …network of shadow government ruled by organized crime king pins operating under the control of communist ideology.

    Well, it seems to me that we’re at that point already, and have been so for years, culminating in what we see now (which your quote has uncannily described).

    Which leads me to ask, “why the need for a Velvet Revolution at all?” The goal has already been achieved, no? No. Not in fullness. Fullness in this usually requires (as I have noted many times before) mass graves — and more each time it’s tried, this foisting of communism upon an unwilling population, and in fewer years each time as well.

    We are not quite there yet. Almost.

  • Mark1957

    Hell, they might as well just change the name from Sesame Street to Barack Obama BLVD, and all the little kiddies can learn how to live off the taxpayer teat on easy street.

  • Taqiyyotomist



    aaaand, I quote:

    What we have got to understand is that we are at war. These people are about completely destroying us. Let me give you my real radical stuff right quick, OK? Excuse me. [Laughter, encouragement: “Let ʻem have it.”] White people–white people are recessive. White people define themselves as pure white. Therefore, any drop of anybody elseʼs blood in them destroys them. So the only way they can stay white is to destroy everything else, or at least push you away from them so you cannot get to them. So the power of the black sperm is so powerful that they gonna always control you or kill you if they wanna stay white in their own mind. What makes a white folk, person the devil is not his skin color, but his desire to keep his skin color white, which the only way he can do it is to destroy everything black, because black is the dominant, and they are recessive. So everything they do–they look at these figures, they know by 2046 they are going to be the minority. So what you think they gonna do? They gonna leave this country for us to take over and run it? No–they’re selling off every piece of it. They’re selling off bridges. They’re selling off highways. They’re selling off government buildings. They’ll sell this whole country off to foreigners…so when we take over thereʼs nothing we’re gonna have control over except that we are going to have to tax the people to pay the money back to the international bankers. So we have to take our struggle beyond the issue of just the black farmers….This is a Third World country.

    Read the whole thing.

    Maybe this is where Shareef went on his vacation before he shot up his co-workers at the quarry the other day?


  • donh

    The Velvet Revolution is necessary to officially wipe out the old facade and transform fundamental operation of society over to the Czars already installed . Its a streamlining of a power structure already in place. The riots about to take place are just street theatre of an outcome preordained. Mayors like Bloomberg will intentionally order police brutality to lend a moral upper hand to the slacker mob and swell the crowds.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Re: my last:

    Not once in the entire press conference–which lasted over two hours–did any of the panelists or audience members raise a single objection to any of the remarks above.

    And not one journalist has reported on the proceedings, even though they involve parties to a $2.7 billion settlement with the federal government, even though the Pigford press conference was staged inside the mainstream media’s own private clubhouse.

  • LIndensant

    I thought Oscar the Grouch, the homeless muppet that lives in the trash can could be their standard bearer. I guess they need to reinforce the idea of a failed America.

  • HavingABadDream

    Lily looks pretty healthy to me or do those who are starving turn that shade of pink? This premise of starving children is ridiculous. We have enough food banks alone in this country to feed them. But libs love victims and will create as many as they can until they’re stopped.

    As an aside, I was shopping in a local market a while back and this little girl was asking her mother for some orange juice. Mom’s reply was OJ costs too much. This was while she was taking 2, 12 count packs of beer from the shelf. I guess that was to go along with all the junk food she had in the cart. Intrigued, I followed them to checkout. They were using food stamps, money, of course for the beer and other things not covered, plus 2 cartons of cigs. So perhaps what we have here are parents whose priorities are skewed.

  • Hangtown Bob

    Well…… At least, we won’t have to put up with this STARVING muppet, Lily, for long. She (it?) will be DEAD in a few weeks.

  • big L

    Bring on the horses. The Mounted police moves along a line and the crowds get shoved out of town. Failing that where are the tear gas cannisters.They have done those for years, usually after a couple of days putting up with this crap. Restores order. Mild reprochement. Do you hear anyone suggesting snipers on the roof or SWAT vans with giant riot-gear clad police? No.
    But what does go down-nothing- looks like Bloomberg and Kelly have tosssed in the towel. Interesting that the NYPD can conduct foreign anti terror missions and have SAMs but can’t do the job of regular boring keeping the peace in Manhattan.

  • last year the government had to regulate what the kids eat because they were fat. now they are starving. ever notice how nothing in a marxist world is ever any good.

  • Big Mo

    ~SIGH~ American English takes another hit. Instead of “hungry,” we now say “food insecure.”

    Good grief.

  • Valerie

    Food, real food, remains a terrific deal in this country. All you have to do is decide to cook instead of eating out.

    Sesame Street to Introduce a Poor, Starving Muppet
    to Educate on Growing Number of Starving Children..

    a great number of which live in Washington DC
    & can view the Capital Dome from their home..


  • That muppet doesn’t look malnourished to me. If anything, it looks like Meechelle’s version of “healthy” weight.

  • ocrick

    So nice to see PHONY Christian NeoCon Scum has NO Problem with kids going hungry.

    Just like Jesus….

  • if they team the “food insecure” kids up with the twenty percent or so of kids they keep telling us are overweight, not only will both problems solve themselves, but maybe the brats will learn how to share and play nice….

  • jony101

    To be more realistic we also need a little illegal alien muppet, to garner empathy for them. I never seen a skinny poor person is america. There is no such thing.
    The only skinny people in America are the rich runway models.
    Poor people on foodstamps eat better than the working people. In the supermarket the poor people buy the most expensive cut of meat and sodas galore with there foodstamps then drive home in there late-model SUV with custom rims, I wish I was lying.
    Little poor muppet need to gain a few pounds to be realistic.

  • redpillpatriot

    Yes, #39 Ocrick We all hate, blacks, hispanics, and poor people. You figured out the right wing. That’s why all the enlightened Left, keeps all their constituents in the inner city plantation on the government dole, and makes them feel even less than human by dumming down tests and making quotas to hire them, because you all know they are too useless to work, or learn…. Yes and we are the racists..

    And yes we hate poor people, that’s why Christians donate and volunteer 1000/1 over leftists. Your version of helping the poor is stealing from hardworking people and giving it to people with no will or desire to work.

    And we hate babies and love terrorists! … Oh wait that’s you guys….

    I hope you learned something today… Try turning off PBS and getting on Gateway Pundit more often and you may just become a good American.

  • Molon Labe

    I want to see a tranny muoppet doing it with big bird and obama. Its for the children!

  • gastorgrab

    Starving people don’t have enough money to buy food, but they all have a television set?

  • Spartan

    Then someone please tell me what the hell Oscar’s role was on that stupid show??? I mean looking at this new puppet,,,,,she’s dressed better than Oscar??? WTF??? How can she be starving if Oscar has been living in a friggin’ can all these years?? GO LIVE WITH THE PUPPET IN THE CAN!!!!

  • Questionman

    #9, what a sick demented human. You want children to be racist, bigoted dumb bells like you!
    In the entirety of Bush’s 8 years, I disagreed with him many times. But never did I call him an enemy. Or someone that hates America. Never did I think the people who supported him where enemies that hated America. The same doesn’t apply for Republicans who now find themselves in the minority. They view everyone– yes everyone– that doesn’t believe everything they do and watch Fox News as enemies that must be stopped at all costs. There’s a sort of cultish mix of fanaticism involved with such a mindset. Whatever it is, it’s alive and well and has hijacked the GOP. There’s no reason to think it’s going to change any time soon either. It’s a disgrace.

    I felt like talking about Bush, since this fraud is linking Obama to this story and he has nothing to do with this!

    This has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with child empathy and understanding of hunger. Yes, Children are starving in the country. Additionally – children are ALSO missing meals or not eating adequately for a variety of different reasons (hence childhood obesity). The focus of this program is the CHILDREN… not Obama, the government, or GOP.
