NBC Defends Pennywise The Clown's Harmless Slogan 'I'm Coming For Your Children' | Eastern North Carolina Now

    DERRY, ME     In the wake of public outcry over the murderous evil clown Pennywise telling the townspeople "I'm coming for your children," the local NBC affiliate is assuring residents that the demonic creature is totally harmless and only joking.

    "He's a clown, for goodness sake!" said news correspondent Jake Jacobsen. "Wild, red hair...bright red clown nose. He even gives out red balloons to kids! What harm could he possibly mean when he says he's coming for your children?"

    Fear and uproar swept through town after Pennywise began enticing children and making it very clear that he would be targeting their children. "He's obviously not someone you would want your children around," said concerned Derry citizen Joseph Brock. "I saw him climbing out of a storm drain. It looked like he had blood on his clothes. Does that seem normal to anyone?"

    In spite of mounting evidence that Pennywise desires to dismember and kill the children of the town, the NBC affiliate stood by its defense of the clown. "Look, everyone expresses their love for children in different ways," Jacobsen continued. "It's not our place to tell anyone how they should or should not behave toward kids. Anyone who thinks Pennywise should stay away from children is clearly just a bigot."

    At publishing time, as reports came in that Pennywise had ripped off a young boy's arm and pulled him into a storm drain, NBC issued a statement that the clown was just trying to help him find shelter during a rainstorm.

Big Bob, you are a Leftist. You are still talking about Willie Horton. You're also talking about "poetized children," whatever that is.

And the then, as a Leftist, you state that I "don't have the votes or any good ideas."

Historically, I have had more good ideas as a Beaufort County Commissioner in modern times than any other county commissioner, save one, and he currently sits to my right, and we both agree on our collective "good ideas," and we both have NEVER politicized children ... that is the domain of Leftists like yourself.

Sorry Stan, but the righties have poetized children and insist on government involvement to make political points with their base. Like Wilily Horton, its just politics of fear to win elections. I guess thats what you do when you don't have the votes or any good ideas.

Now this piece of satire is hilarious on so many levels: Leftists' politization of children right down to their privates, and no real journalists working at the Leftist NBC ... I get it ... Plus the whole creepy clown thing, and Pennywise at that.
