Clips from the classic children’s TV show ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ have resurfaced, and are making the rounds on social media.
The clips are “triggering” people on the left because what Rogers calmly and confidently states goes against the current progressive ideology of “transgenderism.“
In 2023, it’s easy to forget that the liberal view on this issue was considered far outside the mainstream not so long ago.
What the generational icon Fred Rogers says in these videos is still the view held by most Americans, despite the efforts of the media and Hollywood to normalize it.

Resurfaced ‘Mister Rogers’ video features iconic TV star seemingly warning against transgenderism among kids
An old clip of beloved children’s TV star Mister Rogers that resurfaced on TikTok in recent days had internet users wondering if the “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” character was warning society against promoting transgenderism among young children more than 40 years ago.
The clip, which made the rounds on the popular social media platform, featured the late TV icon Fred Rogers singing his song, “Everybody’s Fancy.”
The lyrics of the tune contain a simple message about boys’ and girls’ bodies having inherent differences and encourage children to find beauty and acceptance in those obvious differences.
Many users on Twitter angrily objected to the clips, with some demanding they be censored or taken down, calling them “deeply triggering.”Advertisement
Rogers elaborated on this point during an appearance on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, when the common situation of girls acting like “tom boys,” and kids “worrying” about their gender came up.
It’s a stark reminder about how far and fast we have drifted in our culture, which is precisely why it bothers the left.
