The first thing that came to mind when coming across this image was the message it sends to those wacky conservatives who insist that the liberal boogey man is lurking around every corner waiting to turn you into a communist at a moments notice.

See how the giant Elmo figure (with his RED fur) is hovering over this poor man. His largess is about to consume the prototypical American who is probably one of those hard working Republican consumers with his briefcase slung across a shoulder and a Coke in his hand. The black hole of his mouth ready to take everything it can from this poor unfortunate soul.

Not only is Elmo red but he is government funded representing the liberal indoctrination machine that dares to tell this American (probably a god fearing evangelical with a healthy dose of animosity towards gays, immigrants, and other religions) that he should at the very least tolerate those people unlike himself.

The Conclusion: Elmo is actually a secret Communist plot to indoctrinate our children and install himself as our Commie dictator. Think about it for just a moment people! Elmo introduces himself to the United States in the mid to late 1980s just as the Soviet Union was on the decline. This coupled with his message of community and his obnoxiously red hair should have been a dead giveaway.

But hey, I could just be trying to find the boogey man around every corner and in every innocuous fist bump.
