A man dressed as Elmo, the lovable Sesame Street character, at the New York city Central Park was handcuffed by New York City cops last month and whisked away in an ambulance after he launched into one of his trademark anti-Jewish rants. Watch video below.
The unidentified man, who police said was not arrested, was removed from the vicinity of the Central Park Zoo, where he had alternately posed for photos with park visitors, while blaming Jewish elites for American and world’s problems.
The Elmo was filmed loudly complaining that he was not making money because “the Jewish cops” were harassing him. He also suggested that parkgoers read auto-tycoon, Henry Ford’s book, The International Jew.
“The only statement I care to make about ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ is that they fit in what is going on. They’re sixteen years old and they have fitted the world situation up to this time. They fit it now,” Henry Ford said in an interview published in the the New York World in February 17, 1921.
The man also blasted Abraham Foxman, supremacist head of the Israel lobby group, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) by saying: “If you start your own business in this city, Jews will harass you“.
Elmo was created by puppeteer Kevin Jeffrey Clash over 26 years ago. Clash’s story is told in 2011 documentary “Being Elmo”, which chronicles the puppeteer’s journey from performing in backyard shows for his mother’s home-based day care center, to working with Jim Henson and the rest of the Muppeteers, to becoming an integral part of the Sesame Street cast.
