    I have a feeling that that fella (dressed as Elmo) hated Sesame Street as a child. Just a thought..........

    It's good that people like this are being exposed for the jerks they are. I remember something my stepmother used to say, one of the few things about which I completely agreed with her. "Feelings are never wrong," according to Myrna. "Feelings aren't about right and wrong. They're your feelings and you feel the way you feel." But let me append my stepmother's view: Feelings aren't about right and wrong, but whether and how you act on your feelings ... that IS about right and wrong! If this Bozo - or should I say Elmo - hates the Jewish people, that's his business and only his business. He shouldn't make it ours. Yes, I believe in our first-amendment right of free speech, but there's a time and place for everything and this was just completely uncalled for. We all live and co-exist in this world, and to paraphrase the late Rodney King, we all MUST get along!

    Okay, that Elmo was scarey! No wonder I used to cry whenever I seen
    characters from off the t.v. in the streets! I knew something wasn't right about them :( This was very scarey and I feel sorry for that Elmo.

    All that he did was reference a book. I see no harm here.

    Why is this article titled as a "Racist" tirade? The Jews aren't a race, they are a religion. If anything, it should be called "Elmo's Anti-Semitic Tirade"

    Um, all I heard was a clip from "American History X."
