Dear Hollywood writers, to quote Festivus founder Seinfeld's Frank Costanza, "I've got a lot of problems with you people, and now you're going to hear about it!" Since its December 23, it is time for Newsbusters to air its many grievances with television in a proper Festivus spirit. So I’ve grabbed my aluminum Festivus pole to give you all a piece of my mind.
I know it’s South Park and nothing’s sacred, but come on! Did they really have to have Santa AND Jesus snorting cocaine in their season finale Christmas episode? On Wednesday’s “Christmas Snow” episode, South Park had too many drunk driving crashes so Santa got a county ordinance to stop all liquor sales until January 2.
Television can be something of a wasteland without much for us to celebrate, so it makes us even more thankful for the shows that portray a conservative message. It's nice to see our values represented, and we are grateful to these shows for making that happen, even if they're not always all that friendly. As Thanksgiving approaches, here are 4 shows that conservatives can be thankful for from this fall season.
Last week, South Park aired a classic episode that skewered the trans athlete phenomenon. But IndieWire author Jude Dry, whose pronouns are listed on Twitter as “they/them/theirs,” was not amused. Dry's IndieWire article this Wednesday hilariously claimed the episode “provoked an immediate and universal backlash,” (only if backlash means laughter).
On Wednesday, South Park illustrated the absurdity of allowing men who identify as women into female athletic competitions, in a way only South Park can, in the episode titled "Strong Woman."
South Park's "Season Finale" episode, which is not actually the season finale, really went off on President Trump and Rudy Giuliani Wednesday night.
South Park's newest episode, "Let Them Eat Goo" which aired Wednesday mocks LeBron James and his lack of defense of free speech in the current crisis of Hong Kong against China. The episode concentrates on diets and plant-based foods, and on the students at South Park's public school who are protesting the unhealthy food they are being fed, especially meat from animals.
Unlike some other businesses and corporations, South Park and Comedy Central aren't afraid of offending Communist China. In fact, they doubled down in Wednesday night's episode "SHOTS!!!" by having a major character shout, "[Bleep] the Chinese government!"
The South Park episode "Band in China" that aired Wednesday night exposed the brutalities and human rights abuses of the Communist government and we're feeling pretty good about it. The episode slammed the entertainment industry for allowing Communist China to censor content produced in the United States.
The new season of South Park got back to its libertarian roots in ways many conservatives might not appreciate. One side plot of Wednesday night's episode "Mexican Joker" dealt with marijuana and regulation reform, but the main storyline was based around illegal immigrant children being placed in detention centers.
South Park decided to go after President Donald Trump in a subtle yet notable manner in the season 22 finale, titled “Bike Parade,” which aired on Wednesday night.
South Park has no issue mocking the people who whine about political correctness as babies, and they did just that on several occasions in season 22 episode eight, titled “Buddha Box,” which aired on Wednesday night.
