Are The Simpsons REALLY axing Apu?

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

Amidst all this news about Apu being axed from The Simpsons, a senior official from the show has suggested that it might not, in fact, be the case.

If he is leaving, though… isn’t this really more racist than his stereotype was?

If we’re to believe that Indian people are unable to laugh at themselves and the stereotypes of their own culture, aren’t we suggesting that Indians are somehow lesser than the white people who put up with all the negative white stereotypes on the show?

I know it’s been talked to death at this point, but I think it’s an important point to keep making. If Apu really is being axed, then it’s a serious step towards transforming television and popular culture.

Therefore expect increasing anti-white propaganda and marginalization. How much longer can it be until whites are being herded onto trains bound for extermination camps? It happened to Jews and it can happen to us.

In our cultural Marxist racist white-hating culture, only white people can be lampooned (since only whites are considered perpetually evil and deserving of extermination), so it was inevitable that any non-white character being treated on the same or even a similar basis as Homer would have to be removed, or altered to reflect the supposed moral superiority of non-whites and the supposed moral depravity of whites.

… I’m a white male, and I am offended by the portrayal of Homer. He must be taken off the show.
… Boo hoo. Poor me.

A serious step towards transforming television and popular culture to the Dogma of socialism and Marxism…. Islamic style.
