The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) recently announced that they will not allow any of The Muppets from Sesame Street to come and hang out at their annual Florida meeting next year because they've been promoting the importance of the COVID-10 vaccine. That's right. They are literally banning puppets from attending their silly conference.

The whole thing started when Big Bird tweeted back on November 6th that he had received his COVID-19 vaccination:

I honestly can't believe that I typed the words "Big Bird tweeted." He's a friggin' Muppet, guys. Funny to think that anyone could get their feathers so ruffled over a character on a children's show that's clearly trying to calm any fears a child might have over a vaccine that's been proven effective and has likely already saved hundreds of thousands of lives this past year alone.

The fact that anyone is still arguing about it completely boggles my mind. It's not a matter of politics. It's a matter of killing off a deadly disease that has taken the lives of so many people, maybe even someone close to you. I've watched dozens of friends lose their parents and grandparents to this disease. It isn't a joke. It isn't a hoax. It's a disease that doesn't give a s**t whether you believe in it or not.

Think with your brains. Get vaccinated so that you can protect yourselves and those around you. Stop buying into stupid garbage. If you don't trust scientists, modern medicine and healthcare professionals across the globe, then please do yourself and favor and don't call upon them when you're injured or ill. I'm sure you can cure your own diseases. You seem to know it all.
