The classic Christian cartoon VeggieTales is being accused of racism for negatively portraying so-called minority vegetables, proving some people are able to find just about anything “racist.”
Liberals have stated very clearly that “everything is racist,” but it never ceases to amaze the things they find racism in. The classic Christian cartoon VeggieTales is being accused of racism for negatively portraying minority vegetables as villains and perpetuating racial stereotypes.
Many foods like milk and fried chicken have been called racist by the left, but until now the vegetables have been safe. This will surely cause an existential crisis among vegans as their no-meat diets are driven by leftist ideology.
The College Fix reports that Cal State San Marcos held a “Whiteness Forum” last week. Despite its name, this forum was more of an anti-whiteness affair with topics like “White Avoidance,” “Civilized vs. Uncivilized,” “Kill the Land, Kill the Indian,” “White Women’s Role in White Supremacy,” and “Gun Ownership and Racial Bias.”
One of the panel discussions or “projects” as they were called focused on the screaming racism of a wholesome children’s cartoon.
Another project suggested that the children’s Christian television show, “VeggieTales,” perpetuates racial stereotypes. A female student who worked on the project said in an interview that the accents of the evil characters tend to sound ethnic, such as Latino, while the good characters sound white.
“When supremacists aim to taint the way children think of people of color, it will work,” the project said. “Whiteness in the Bible isn’t just seen as ‘power’ it’s seen as ‘good.’ 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.”
What show were these nuts watching?
VeggieTales was an animated TV show and direct-to-video series that used anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables to convey Christian morality to children. Some of the main characters were Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, and Junior Asparagus, all vegetables of color. All of the so-called good vegetables were definitely not “white” as the hysterical liberals would have you believe.
There also weren’t really villain vegetables on the show either. There were some characters who had flaws of morality, but they always learned their lesson. It’s not like any of the fruits or vegetables were gang-banging, crack-smoking thugs, and none of them had over-the-top stereotypical accents. Archibald Asparagus had a British accent while Madame Blueberry was French.
Apparently, the liberals at the this “Whiteness Forum” were put off by the “racism” of portraying green and blue characters as stereotypes of white Europeans, which makes as much sense as any of this other nonsense.
PJ Media got VeggieTales writer and narrator Eric Metaxas’ reaction to this accusation. “All vegetables are part of one race, even though they are of many colors. They are all descended from the same parents — the Adam and Eve of vegetables, who foolishly ate a forbidden fruit (irony?) and screwed everything up for all vegetables descended from them. At least I’m pretty sure that’s the story,” said Metaxas.
When liberals are at the point where they are accusing cartoon vegetables of racism, that should be a pretty good indicator that we are truly a post-racial society and no actual racism exists anymore. Unfortunately, the left can’t let the race-hustle go and will continue to devalue the meaning of “racism” by accusing literally everything of being racist.
