Big Bird Gets the Axe
“Sesame Street’s themes of tolerance and acceptance are outdated and Fox News has approached us with an affiliate agreement that would increase market shares for both organizations. If we start teaching hate in pre-school, we are certain to recruit future Fox viewers. Cruella, please show us your design for Big Bird’s replacement.”
“Behold The Trumpet Bird with his contorted red face and hilarious topknot. He will screech intolerance. In his first episode, The Trumpet will close the borders of Sesame Street and all residents will be appropriately labeled.”
“Brilliant! Kids don’t know who to hate until we show them and we at Fox believe that labels can not go too far.”

I make no apologies for my word count or for showing my Liberal Female Republican Catholic roots. What’s your label going to say? The true danger in this country lies within our own borders. Fear, ignorance, intolerance, and hate threaten to undermine the very ideals of these United States.
