Of Smurfs and Crypto-Fascism

In 2011 French sociologist Antoine Buéno published Le Petit livre bleu, essai sur les schtroumpfs, in which he put forward the thesis that the Smurfs are actually an insidious exercise in crypto-fascist propaganda filled with racist, antisemitic and totalitarian secret messages. Srsly.

Personally I think that this helps to put into perspective the paranoid fascist-baiting ravings of Amy Hale and Jason Pitzl-Waters.

And, no, I am not making this shit up.
