Media Shames South Park for Ignoring Trump Jokes
August 19th, 2017 12:15 PM
South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone won't tar Trump in the show's upcoming season. That made the media very, very angry. Cartman, Kyle and Kenny, meet Jimmy Fallon. The Tonight Show host once treated Donald Trump like a guest on his late night program. Because … that’s what the reality show host was.
Columnist: Trump an Enemy of the Media, Just Like Hugo Chavez
February 24th, 2017 5:19 PM
Almost fifteen years ago, South Park paid tribute to a trailblazing animated TV series by calling an episode “The Simpsons Already Did It.” According to Columbia Journalism Review columnist Joel Simon, regardless of the current hubbub over President Trump’s media-bashing, several “Latin American populist” heads of state, including the late Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez, already did it, or…

'South Park:' PC Culture Created Trump
November 17th, 2016 4:14 AM
South Park goes full Trump in Wednesday night’s episode “Members Only.” Newly minted Presidential Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon are there to oversee Mr. Garrison completing the “transition” into Donald Trump – he now has Trump’s hair and facial expressions. I'm not even sure whether to refer to him as Mr. Garrison or Trump at this point.

‘South Park’ Trolls Hillary Just Before Election
October 27th, 2016 2:37 AM

'South Park' Shocks with Naked 10-Year-Olds
October 13th, 2016 2:58 AM
There South Park goes again, finding a line and going miles across it. Wednesday night’s episode was titled “Wieners Out” and, yes, that’s meant to be taken literally. How creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone got cartoon elementary school boys pulling down their pants and showing their wieners on TV past the censors, I will never know.
'South Park' Mocks Hillary in First Debate
September 29th, 2016 12:42 AM
South Park again parodied the presidential election between "Giant Douche and Turd Sandwich" in season 20’s third episode, “The Damned.” Two nights after the country’s first presidential debate, South Park had its own between Mr. Garrison and Hillary Clinton. The show mocked Hillary’s reliance on political advisors and scripted sound bites.
South Park: Election is Choice Between ‘Giant Douche, Turd Sandwich'
September 15th, 2016 12:36 AM
The much-anticipated premiere of South Park’s 20th season did not disappoint, featuring just the right level of timely, raunchy, bipartisan satire for which the show is known. In the episode “Member Berries,” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone take on the National Anthem, female comics, and the presidential election in a way only South Park can.

South Park just tweeted a National Anthem-themed promo for the premiere of their 20th season to coincide with the kickoff of the San Francisco 49ers' Monday Night Football game where backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick continued his asinine protest of the Anthem.
The South Park Gun Episode that Liberals Didn't Want to See
December 10th, 2015 4:36 AM
Liberals must be so disappointed with the much-hyped “gun control” episode of South Park. There was a big build up that the show’s season 19 finale, “PC Principal Final Justice,” would see every South Park citizen arm themselves and lead to an explosive conclusion, but that never happened, much to their chagrin.
Real Life PC Principal Interrupts Ben Shapiro Speech
December 9th, 2015 2:39 PM
His name is Dean Nafarrete, associate principal of Otay Ranch High School near San Diego. I have no idea how his name is pronounced but it really doesn't matter since he seems to have doomed himself to being called "PC Principal" now and forever unto the end of time. How did he accomplish this distinction? By interrupting a speech at that school sponsored by the Young America's Foundation by Ben…
South Park Eviscerates Liberal Sacred Cows 'Caitlyn' and Safe Spaces
December 3rd, 2015 2:37 AM
The episode "Truth and Advertising" takes big shots at topics liberals consider to be sacrosanct. South Park is the only show that can get away with portraying Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner as anything other than "stunning and brave." Suffice it to say, South Park is NOT a "safe space" for "Caitlyn."
'South Park' Reminds Viewers about Democrat Debate
November 19th, 2015 4:35 PM
If you had watched last night's episode of South Park then you are probably aware of how it brilliantly mocked PC culture. In addition to it's hilarious mocking of PC, it also took on another topic, Saturday's Democrat presidential candidates debate. If you missed that debate, you can be forgiven because the DNC very intentionally wanted as few people to watch it as possible. However, thanks to a…
