UPDATE: Sesame Street Forces Bert and Ernie Back Into The Closet

Published

on

The nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street was apparently displeased when former writer Mark Saltzman claimed Tuesday that two characters of the show were modeled after a gay couple.

“Please see our statement below regarding Bert and Ernie,” Sesame Workshop wrote.

“As we have always said, Bert and Ernie are best friends,” the statement reads. “They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends from those who are very different from themselves. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits (as most Sesame Street Muppets do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.”

Big League Politics reported earlier Tuesday:

After years of speculation, Bert and Ernie of Sesame Street fame are gay, according to one of the show’s writers.

“Mark Saltzman, who joined the Sesame Street team in 1984, has revealed he did indeed write Bert and Ernie as a gay couple,” according to a report.

Saltzman said that the characters “reflected his own same sex relationship with film editor Arnold Glassman at the time.”

Sesame Street has a long history of denying that the characters were romantically involved, perhaps stemming from ratings concerns.

Some have taken the news of Bert and Ernie being forced back into the closet roughly.

“So, basically Muppets possess every single human trait except the ability to love each other in a romantic way?” Charlotte Clymer, former Hillary Clinton campaign communications director argued with the creators of the fictional cartoon show.

“Let Bert and Ernie be the gay icons we deserve,” said Blair Imani, self-described “black, queer and Muslim activist.”

“If Bert and Ernie are not gay they’re not gay but your excuse can’t be that they’re puppets. Kermit and Miss Piggy are in an on again/off again relationship and a muppet wedding between them is even a major feature of the most recent movie,” said Jenny Nicholson, who has apparently pondered this question at great length.

This story is developing, and Big League Politics will keep you updated on all of the Bert and Ernie drama as it unfolds.

BLM Supporter Charged With Attempted Murder After Driving into Crowd of Trump Supporters in Parking Lot

Vicious attack.

Published

on

A woman has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after driving through a crowd of Donald Trump supporters demonstrating in a Yorba Linda, California parking lot.

The Trump supporters had arrived in the conservative-leaning California city to counter a Breonna Taylor Black Lives Matter event. Conservatives and BLM protestors had opposed one another on opposite sides of a street, with the former hailing insults and some projectiles at the former.

The victims of the attack weren’t blocking a public roadway, a dangerous tactic that ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter militants have frequently used. They were standing in a parking lot.

One man who was injured in the car attack suffered two broken legs.

The woman who was driving the white Nissan used in the attack was arrested by Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies shortly after the incident. Photography reveals she was wearing riot gear being used by nearby Black Lives Matter protestors who were active in the nominally conservative Orange County city.

The driver has been identified as Tatiana Turner of Long Beach. She’s been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.

It’s somewhat of a surprise that a leftist terrorist is being held accountable by the criminal justice system in California. It remains to be seen if Democrat-aligned prosecutors will attempt to drop the charges in the case, enabling Turner to get away with the vicious assault.
