Elmo Rants in Central Park
Earlier this week, there were reports that a man was harassing people in Central Park, screaming anti-semitic rants. Normally, this would be your average “just another day in the city” news story, but the dude stepped up his “WUT” factor by doing all of this… dressed as Elmo from Sesame Street. Yes, the cuddly adorable red monster was seen angrily screaming at passerby over many conspiracies involving “The Jews.” Well, THAT seems a bit off base from your standard “numbers and colors” run-down we’ve come to know from the popular children’s character… Check out a video of Elmo losing his mind below:
If you’re having trouble making out the noise coming out of this hate monger’s mouth, we have transcribed it to you, for your reading pleasure/horror:
“Read about The International Jew by Henry Ford. … I’m not making money because the Jewish costume company is harassing me. That’s why I’m doing it, and that’s why I want everybody to read The International Jew because if you start your own business in this city, Jews will harass you. Read about The International Jew by Henry Ford.”
Yiiiikes!! That’s slightly less adorable than the Elmo we know, love, and sometimes tickle. …Slightly–hah. Apparently, this is not the first time Elmo has terrorized the Central Park area and has been known to reference his “work history” with John Gotti, along with his infamous hate speech.
But the crazy town antics don’t stop there, my friends! Nope. Turns out, The New York Times did some snooping on Elmo and discovered loads more creeptastic information. One of my personal favorites being that he has legally changed his name to Adam Sandler. NYT also reported:
“Mr. Sandler said he has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon, which the university confirmed. He later traveled to Cambodia and started a pornographic Web site called ‘Welcome to the Rape Camp.
“’I had a sex scandal,’ he said.
“An online search yielded news accounts of the site, like a 1999 article by The Associated Press that identified Mr. Sandler by his original name. The Cambodian police arrested Mr. Sandler that year and quickly deported him, according to news media accounts and Mr. Sandler. He insisted the women on the site were not harmed and were paid $20 per performance.”
So, let’s rewind for a moment. There is a man named Adam Sandler, who dresses up like Elmo and screams anti-semitic rants in Central Park (despite being named ADAM SANDLER). But it’s not his fault! He was deported… from Cambodia… for running a website called “Welcome to Rape Camp!” Sounds like the world is just against this totally rational human being. Yup, that’s it.
The lesson here? Keep your kiddies out of Central Park, avoid screaming men in furry costumes, and for the love of God, don’t tell anybody how to get to Sesame Street.
