A turanizmus különböző keleti rokonságelméleteinek terjesztése negatívan befolyásolta az első világháború előtti Európának a Magyarországról és a magyar népről kialakított képét és képzeteit. A turanizmus kisebb részben még a trianoni békeszerződés megfogalmazására is kihatott - természetesen a determinánsabb főbb gazdasági geopolitikai érdekek mellett - rasszista alapú, de sikeres "érveket" adva a korabeli román és csehszlovák politikusok kezébe, akik igyekeztek elhitetni a politikaformáló nyugati közvéleménnyel, hogy az európiai népektől teljesen eltérő "idegen" sárga mongoloid nagyrasszba tartozó turáni magyarok elnyomják a területükön élő tehetségesebb kulturált "fehér és európai" szláv és román népcsoportokat.

And ”Turanians?” In the pseudo-scientific thinking of the time, it was believed there was an "Indo-German Race," that is the whites, or Caucasian, which was supposed to include the Germanic, the Romance and the Slavic-speaking peoples, the "Turanian" race, which was supposed to be "yellow," or Mongoloid, and was seen as including the Mongols and Japanese proper, as well as the Turks, Hungarians, and Finns, and there were the so-called "savage races" which referred to the blacks. Needless to say, this was a neat way of cutting the Hungarians (and the Turks) out of the "civilised white race”. It should be added that the term “Mongoloid” at the time referred to someone with Down’s Syndrome, and was hardly a compliment. Further, the idea was advanced that “white” peoples like the Rumanians and Slavs should not live under “yellow barbarians” like the Hungarians.

This race-minded attitude, combined with ignorance and arrogance on the part of the Allied Powers, led to the failure of their postwar model. Instead of creating a world "safe for democracy," they created an unstable Europe that was "safe" first for Hitler and then for Stalin. The road to hell seems be paved indeed with both good intentions and hatred, like that of the French leader. Tragically, ethnic Hungarians are still baited by majority populations in places like Rumania as being: “Savage barbarians who should go back to Asia, where you belong.” One wonders what hearing this from a teacher does to the development of a child.

Racism Played a Part But even Wilson wanted an “ethnical” Europe. An article on FigyelőNet (ObserverNet) quoted historian Miklós Zeidler’s view that among the issues that caused the 1000 year-old kingdom’s demise included a strong dose of anti-Hungarian propaganda. While the historian does not state openly that it was racist, the views expressed would be classed as such today. The Successor States of the kingdom, namely, Czechoslovakia, Greater Rumania and Yugoslavia, argued that Hungarians were ”barbarians” who, despite 1,000 years in Europe, had failed to absorb Western civilisation. Thomas Masaryk, who later become one of the leaders of Czechoslovakia, wrote, aiming at the Asiatic roots of Hungarians: "Nothing could be more repugnant and disgusting than the megalomania of such a small nation than the mongol- descended Hungarians."

And the Secretary to the British Delegation to Versailles after the War, Harold Nicholson, wrote quite candidly in his book, Peacemaking: "My attitude towards Austria was a rather saddened reflection as to what would remain of her when the New Europe had once been created. I did not regard her as a living entity: I thought of her only as a pathetic relic. My feelings towards Hungary were less detached. I confess that I regarded, and still regard, that Turanian tribe with acute distaste. Like their cousins the Turks, they had destroyed much and created nothing. "

Szerencsére a turanizmusban csak a tanulatlanabb alsóbb néprétegek hisznek, a proletárok, szakmunkások. Javaslom inkább művelődjetek:
