Are The Smurfs Racist Anti-Semites?!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

Holy shiz!

The Smurfs?! REALLY?!

Check out this clip (above) of French sociologist and author Antoine Buéno, who asserts in his new book "Le Petit Livre Bleu," that seemingly innocent cartoon is actually filled with HOriffic racial propaganda, and as he explains, "the embodiment of a totalitarian utopia, steeped in Stalinism and Nazism."

Apparently, Papa Smurf is not only an authoritarian, and the way he runs their collective "economy" with no private property is a metaphor for a socialist society. Meanwhile, the villainous Gargamel is actually just a caricuture of Jewish people, and Smurfette represents aryan perfection!

He concludes:

"The first comic strip, 'The Black Smurfs,' was intimately concerned with what you might classify as a racial threat. Because in that album, the smurfs are sick. And when they're sick, they don't turn purple or red or anything like that, they become black. And when they become black, they lose all trace of intelligence. THey become completely moronic. And further more, they can no longer speak, they just go 'nyap nyap nyap.'"

Well, you can't argue that he's certainly given this a lot of thought!

And he is RIGHT about The Black Smurfs comic, which was banned in the United States for its disgusting racial connotations.

But STILL! If you analyze anything deeply enough, you can draw the patterns that you want to support an argument. This one just happens to make some pretty inneresting ones!

We're not really sure what to think??

How about U? Do U agree with Antoine Buéno??

    Wouldn't want anything todamage a film starring your "friend" Katy Perry, now would we Mario? You're a fucking idiot. How much is The Smurfs movie paying you to promote the film, by the way?

    This guy doesn't know anything - he's just a sociologist, right? Everyone knows that the intelligent people on this planet don't waste their time analyzing the subtext of mainstream entertainment - they analyze the minutia of Celebrity Life and write a fucking blog about it.

    Again, you're a piece of shit, Mario.

    I definitely do not agree with "whatever his name is"! Why the hell on earth would you analyze the fucking Smurfs!? It's for children, it's a comic book made for children and for that reason it is made simple, it hasn't deep meanings in it. There's no point in analyzing the Smurfs, why do people always have to go search things behind everything? The writer probably didn't even think about those things, he just wanted to make something fun and enjoyable for children, so why make a big deal out of it?! And yeah of course it's now easy to say it's racist. The author can't even defend himself (not that he has to in my opinion) cause he's death! For me this is big bullshit!

    Re: Armkin – If it was banned from being printed into the US then there was probably a reason for it. If it wasn't meant to be racist, then it would've never been banned in the first place. Of course if you look hard enough, you can find evidence to prove a point, but this seems very obvious. The Smurfs first came out when there was a lot more (open) racism (now its just nicely hidden). For it to be about blue creatures, I'm sure the creator could've figured out a more logical color to make them when they're sick - like green since that usually represents someone that is about to throw up. Black doesn't even make sense.

    I really hope he wasn't given a grant for this.

    The smurfs are of course antisemite and racist. Pippi Longstocking is a fanatic communist and the teletubbies promote deviant lifestyles. This indoctrination on the highest level and it is destroying our children. We need to forbid these poisonous hidden agendas before it's too late. Down with the Smurfs, Pippi Longstocking, Teletubbies, Internet, comics, TV and books! To protect our families we should probably stop teaching people how to read and maybe also make everyone go blind - that would probably stop all this terrible propaganda.

    Im black and grew up with the smurfs. i'm pretty sure if my parents knew this i would never haven read or watched a smurf comic and cartoon in my life. Interesting theories but seriously though, most kids wont and cant put 2 together.
    The smurfs were a great part of my childhood and I am done with them pretty much. This is not surprising for me , the creator of the smurfs are old europe back when being racist wasnt about spewing the N word. It was more about questioning our intelligence and mocking our chocolate tones. Modern europe is much more racially integrated and color blind. At least in cities.

    Re: love2hateperezite – One of my favorite stories as a kid was "Little Black Sambo", but now it's considered offensive. The only things that I picked up on were the errors that there are no tigers in Africa and, in real life, they don't melt into butter under stress. I never got into "The Smurfs", mostly because of the poor animation. Teresita wasn't worried about exposing Piggy to a surprise birthday party based on "The Smurfs" because she knew, even at a young age, he had mind like a sieve. The hypocrisy came later.

    I think The Smurfs is just a cool cartoon. I do think it's odd that they only had Smurfette as their only girl. Later on they did bring 1 or two little smurf girls on but i don't think they really count.
