Meet The Muppets, Well-Connected Activists: VIDEO


With news that the Jim Henson Company has severed ties with Chick-fil-A over CEO Dan Cathy's anti-gay politics, The Daily Beast rounded up some clips showing Henson's most famous creations, the Muppets, combating social, cultural and economic ills, including childhood hunger, biased media and discrimination.

I've included two videos — President Bill Clinton and HIV-positive Muppet Kami discussing HIV/AIDS and a longer one of Big Bird and company battling bullying — AFTER THE JUMP, but the entire collection is worth a view.
