Blue is the new Red?

Is this clever marketing or should you protect your children from a blue scourge during the Saturday morning cartoons?

A French writer and sociologist, Antoine Bueno claims in "The Little Blue Book," that the Smurfs are, "the embodiment of a totalitarian utopia, steeped in Stalinism and Nazism".


You could say that explains the Socialist NDP surge in Quebec and elsewhere during the most recent Canadian federal election. All those voters were subliminally affected by the Smurfs in their childhood, now they are just a practicing what was preached to them. Its all a giant plot designed to turn the world into a Statist Utopia (see oxymoron). Who knew?
Or, this could be clever capitalist marketing in advance of the Smurfs' new movie where they resurrect the career of Jonathan Winters, 85, - yes, he's still alive and he is the voice of Papa Smurf in the new movie The Smurfs in 3D opening July 29, 2011. 
Yes, the Statist Smurfs arrive in New York City the Capitalist capital, and proclaim "where the smurf are we?" Statist Europe is already deeply involved, with blue villages popping up all over.
Here is Antoine in his own words, after the promo:
