‘Whiteness’ Forum Denounces The Christian Cartoon ‘Veggietales’ As Racist
VeggieTales” have ethnic accents, such as Latino, while the heroic characters sound white.

Where are the vegans in defense of Veggietales?

Via Daily Wire:


Apparently, as the Christian cartoon “VeggieTales” was teaching children about the Bible, it was also secretly teaching them to hate people of color.

According to The College Fix, Cal State San Marcos held a so-called “Whiteness Forum” last Thursday where a variety of topics pertaining to America’s systemic racism was discussed. The two-hour event featured more than a dozen poster board projects critiquing various aspects of society. On top of lambasting the NFL and white women for perpetuating racism, the cartoon where talking vegetables perform biblical stories for children somehow found its way into the discussion, with speakers alleging it portrays racial stereotypes.

“The Christian cartoon ‘VeggieTales’ is racist because the villains are vegetables of color,” The College Fix reports the forum as saying.

A female student who worked on the forum told The College Fix that the villains in “VeggieTales” have ethnic accents, such as Latino, while the heroic characters sound white.

“When kids see the good white character triumph over the bad person of color character, they are taught that white is right and minorities are the source of evil,” the project stated.

It appears to be under every rock and tree these days. That's why nobody pays any attention to cries of "racism" anymore.

Well when you run out of people to accuse of racism, naturally you move on to veggies and then fruits.

OOPS!!  Sorry Fish, can't use fruits, that would be homophobic.  It would seem that we have arrived at the point where we can say NOTHING because it might be considered a code word for something offensive to someone; exactly who doesn't matter as long as it rips our society (what's left of it) apart.  After all, to destroy a nation, first destroy the society that supports it by making everything that society says or does offend the current bogeyman.  I've heard this before and remembered where; it's what the KGB "advisers" were teaching the war protesters back in the 60's and 70's.  Straight out of the Stalin playbook.

I would have to go with Achmed. If for no other reason than his catchphrase: "SILENCE! I keel you!" puts him a small step above the others. Have you ever seen the animated special "Achmed saves America?"

I've watched the show with my daughter and the fact is, they're right. The main characters all have mostly lovable American voices (some are whiny and annoying but that's to be expected from evangelicals I guess), some with even a slight southern affectation, while nearly all the villains have thick Mexican accents or Middle Eastern accents. On top of that it's overtly Christian themed to the point of pushing more Christianity on kids than any supposed good morals found within. My daughter watched like four episodes and then said "I don't like this show anymore, can I watch something else?". I had debated with myself after the first episode whether I should allow her to watch such blatant attempts at indoctrination but decided not to try and ban her from it but let her make her own decision.

Is Veggietales overtly racist? No, but they were certainly created for the WASP youth and do contain their faith's same subversive racism.

A few years ago this would've seemed like a spoof or a practical joke because nobody could be this idiotic or ridiculous. But I guess this is what happens when you witness Idiocracy in real time.

Idiocracy is when they complain that The Simpsons character Apu is a racist stereotype then complain that The Simpsons producers don't use an Indian Actor for Apu's voice.

Okay, I'll bite.

Why is the college holding a "Whiteness Forum"?

Couldn't they just call it a "Progressive Liberal Bitchfest"?

"Another project also denounced the NFL as a racist institution that exploits the talents of mostly black athletes for rich white owners."

Perhaps these snowflakes can follow my lead as I have personally accepted that I don't qualify for a $50million sports job because my fat white ass is just too slow. Otherwise, I'd be a ball bitch.

Well, this is a bit of a pickle. Cartoons infested with racism are the carrot and the stick they use to reel in the little couch potatoes, I guess - at least those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Hmm, that one might be too corny.

Anyway, I don't know how many will swallow this theory, at least not without some ranch dressing on the side. I, for one, didn't just fall off the turnip truck, you know. In the salad days of my youth, a cartoon was just a cartoon. The SJWs are outraged of course, but I will remain cool as a cucumber and offer this olive branch.

This isn't your youth. Today cartoons are so much more like reality. The adults who make them can't resist making them these cartoons with an agenda, much like the developer themselves have. Go figure. 

And the division is passed down. 

Good Luck America

Sure, and there has always been some of that. However, the notion that there is an agenda in these cartoons to demonize people of color is pretty silly. The people with the nefarious agenda are the ones who came up with that silly idea.

Whether to demonise people of color or not as you say  there has always been some of that going on. I'd say from what little I've read about it now it probably still is going on. When race or nationality is normally portrayed in a negative fashion repeatedly these days it's being called out, not long ago it was ether laughed at, ignored or overlooked. That's what's changed.

I may call it an agenda but I think that's kinda the wrong sometimes besides an agenda in them there is still what I think some of what is in these cartoons the word that fits it better is racism. 

racism and agendas the adults either subconsciously have or are willingly and knowingly promoting and pushing on to the next generation. 

BTW: This is not new. People bitchin about it is.

A bunch of White SJW slobs that never got invited to the campus parties trying to find a cause.

Get some zit remover and a Gym membership!
