In defense of Speedy Gonzales: The left’s latest ‘cancel culture’ target

A great piece by Rafael Valera in El American on the left’s new cancelation target, Speedy Gonzalez.

The Dissident #5: A Case for Speedy Gonzales

Has it ever crossed your mind that maybe cartoons are not propaganda tools of white supremacy? If it didn’t, you’re a white supremacist. Or that’s what the left believes.

Speedy Gonzales and Pepe Le Pew are the most recent targets of the cancel mob for, again, something stupid. Charles Blow from the New York Times wrote a hit-piece against the two cartoon characters (weird) where he argues that Pepe Le Pew promotes “rape culture” and Speedy Gonzales portrays Mexicans in a racist way.

He goes on and on talking about how the famous skunk normalized rape culture and how the mouse’s friends popularized the drunken stereotype of Mexicans.

The writer implies that the creators of Speedy Gonzales are racist bigots who want to insult or demean Hispanics. But really, there’s nothing there.

Has it ever crossed your mind that maybe cartoons are not propaganda tools of white supremacy? If it didn’t, you’re a white supremacist. Or that’s what the left believes.

And It doesn’t matter if your Hispanic: you disagree, you’re a white supremacist. Ah! Talk about inclusion…

They say they want to protect your ethnicity, that you should be proud of who you are, but somehow they don’t want you to laugh at yourself. Because that’s what cartoons do: recreate in funny shapes and colors real-life situations and their weird, sometimes hysterical aspects. They show you life in funny sizes and different perspectives. 

[…]

The reality is they don’t want you to have fun, because fun leads to creativity, and creativity leads to questioning. They don’t want you to question anything. “Obey!” they yell. “And don’t laugh!”… Hm, kinda feels like Matilda all over. 

The Left does not want to protect you and make you equal, they want you unrecognizable, dehumanized and depressed, that way it’s easier to control you.

  1. Alas, LOTS of people have so little true merit, righteousness or self-sufficiency that they are desperate for “validation” and well as elevation any way they can get it, however spurious. The point, like with Billy Crystal’s old Fernando character, is to LOOK marvelou–as if that were the same as BEING marvelous. Contemptible.
