Obama’s Muppet Diplomacy: Government to Fund $20 Million for Sesame Street in Pakistan


Do you still doubt that the US government ridiculously spends the tax payers dollars … Obama’s Muppet Diplomacy. So Muppets are supposed to woo Pakistan children away from al-Qaida.

Muslim Sesame Street … you heard that correct. The United States is to fund $20 million for a remake of Sesame Street in Pakistan. So now we are supposed to win the hearts and minds of the Pakistan people through Muppet’s? Because the
US civilian aid to Pakistan has recently tripled to $1.5 billion a year has been such a success. This is what is worth $20 million while American’s sacrifice?  It looks like Crazy Harry, seen below, will finally get a staring role on Pakistan Sesame Street. VIDEO.

The United States is funding a Pakistani remake of the popular TV children’s show Sesame Street.

In a new effort to win hearts and minds in Pakistan, USAID – the development arm of the US government – is donating $20m (£12m) to the country to create a local Urdu version of the show.

The project aims to boost education in Pakistan, where many children have no access to regular schooling.

The show is to be filmed in Lahore and aired later in the year.

“The programme is part of a series of ventures that is aimed at developing the educational infrastructure in the country,” Virginia Morgan, a spokesperson for USAID, told the BBC.

“Education is one of the vital sectors that need help in Pakistan.”

The show will be set in a village in Pakistan – rather than the streets of New York – with roadside tea shop and residents sitting on their verandas.

 Just recently Senators like Barbara Box (D-CA) made fools out of themselves when Republicans wanted to cut government funding for PBS stating that the ‘GOP has ‘vendetta against Elmo’. Think this might be revisited in the 2012 budget?

It would appear that we already have the pilot and many episodes of the new Sesame Street ala Pakistan in the can. As Jihad Watch states, they ”can’t wait for the episode in which Cookie Monster straps on a bomb vest and blows himself up in a crowd of Infidels.” Then there is Weasel Zippers who is reporting that in Episode 1: Bert and Ernie victims of dual honor killing for being gay.

      Isn’t that special…..now Bim Laden will be able to tune in via wireless remote somewhere in one of his hidden caves.

      This pisses me off—-yet they are cutting Federal Programs left and write.

      So, let me get this straight—there is a good chance some of our National State Parks and Mueseums will be shut down due to lack of funding (OBAMA’S OVERSPENDING) but Pakistan can hand over 20 Mil to Pakistan just to watch Big Bird?

      Another brilliant decision by Obama. NOT

      Do we have a fool trying to melt the world into
      one idealistic slag heap or not? Somebody has
      to rein-in this crazed spender of our children’s
      future and thus their freedom. Financial slavery
      is just as bad as any other kind of slavery…perhaps

      *meant US can hand over the $20M to Pakistan. Sneaky little aiding and abetting nation TO TERRORISM.

      The TERRORISM that is responsible and backed the 9/11 attacks on America!

      I wish it was as simple as the muppets. Heck, let the kids over there have some kind of happiness before they grow up and are influenced into being crazed and ugly terrorists.

      At least some of the money will be spent in the US to produce the shows? I hope.

      But I do think we send too much money overseas. Why try to create a welfare state all over the world? It sure ain’t making anybody love us.

      When you are broke, you do without. That’s the message.

      No doubt MISS PIGGY will be a big hit.
