Ted Cruz: Big Bird’s Pro-Vaccine Tweet ‘Propaganda’ Aimed at Children

Big Bird Gets COVID-19 Vaccine, Just in Time for Child ...

[NB – This use of Sesame Street for Big Pharma advertising is part of a much larger propaganda campaign to force the jab onto 28 million American children ages 5 to 11 (and tens of millions more beyond the U.S.), despite the fact that 0 to 19-year-olds have virtual immunity to Covid-19 (99.997% recovery rate) and are more at risk of death and other ‘adverse events’ from the jab. Over the long term, the jab could prove fatal for everyone who takes it, according to some scientists.]

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was among people objecting to Sesame Street character Big Bird’s social media comment about COVID-19 vaccines for children.

“I got the COVID-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it’ll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy,” Big Bird’s Twitter account posted Saturday morning.

“Ms. @EricaRHill even said I’ve been getting vaccines since I was a little bird. I had no idea!”

Cruz later that day replied to Big Bird’s tweet.

“Government propaganda…for your 5 year old!” Cruz tweeted Saturday night.

Newsmax’s Steve Cortes also took issue with Big Bird’s remarks.

“This kind of propaganda is actually evil,” tweeted Cortes, co-host of “Cortes & Pellegrino.” “Your children are not statistically at risk, and should not be pressured into a brand new treatment. Do Not Comply!”

COVID-19 vaccine shots were approved last Tuesday for children ages 5-11.

Cruz has introduced a bill that would prevent the federal government and any entity at the federal, state, and local level that receives federal funding, including school districts, from mandating COVID-19 vaccines for minors.

“Parents should have the right to decide what is best for their children in consultation with their family doctor,” Cruz said in a statement.

On Sunday evening, Cruz tweeted a video of Big Bird knocking down a door and added the comment: “Big Bird coming over to vaccinate your kids.”

Actor/animator Seth MacFarlane then fired a Sunday morning tweet directed at Cruz, saying, “No surprise Big Bird is smarter than Ted Cruz.”

Cruz responded Sunday night.

“Well, every one of those is a puppet, most with a hand inserted up their backside,” Cruz tweeted. “@SethMacFarlane is 1 of the funniest souls on the planet. Am sorry to see him shilling for petty authoritarians who would deny you the right to make your own medical choices.”

Some parents remain hesitant to give their children vaccines due to the age group’s low infection and death rate.

According to the Washington Examiner, the American Academy of Pediatrics warns that “there is an urgent need to collect more data on longer-term impacts of the pandemic on children, including ways the virus may harm the long-term physical health of infected children.”

The Muppet Wiki Twitter account posted a 1972 clip in which Big Bird told kids, “Don’t wait. Vaccinate!”

"Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity ... the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This immaturity is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know! (Sapere aude.) "Have the courage to use your own understanding," is therefore the motto of the [European] Enlightenment. "Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance. They are the reasons why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet [or vaccine], and so on--then I have no need to exert myself. I have no need to think, if only I can pay; others will take care of that disagreeable business for me. Those guardians who have kindly taken supervision upon themselves see to it that the overwhelming majority of mankind ... should consider the step to maturity, not only as hard, but as extremely dangerous. First, these guardians make their domestic cattle stupid and carefully prevent the docile creatures from taking a single step without the leading-strings to which they have fastened them. Then they show them the danger that would threaten them if they should try to walk by themselves. Now this danger is really not very great; after stumbling a few times they would, at last, learn to walk. However, examples of such failures intimidate and generally discourage all further attempts. "Thus it is very difficult for the individual to work himself out of the immaturity which has become almost second nature to him. He has even grown to like it, and is at first really incapable of using his own understanding because he has never been permitted to try it. Dogmas and formulas [e.g., Leftist ideology, identity politics] these mechanical tools designed for reasonable use--or rather abuse--of his natural gifts, are the fetters of an everlasting immaturity. The man who casts them off would make an uncertain leap over the narrowest ditch, because he is not used to such free movement. That is why there are only a few men who walk firmly, and who have emerged from immaturity by cultivating their own minds." - Kant, "An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment"
