New SJW HOT TAKE: South Park Gave Birth to the Alt Right
The left won't be happy until they ruin everything that's funny (see Legendary Mel Brooks: “Political correctness will be the death of comedy…” and Owen Benjamin on PC Culture Ruining Entertainment: Blame Obama). Or everything period. Which if Dan O'Sullivan has his way, this leftist desire to kill all that is good is going to make this one an interesting upcoming season of South Park.
O'Sullivan writes for Rolling Stone, VICE, Gawker, Deadspin, Salon, Soy Boy's Life, Bernie Beat, Better Homes and Social Justice, TransWoman's Day, Screw Men's Health, and the Daily Beast.
(I may have made some of those up).
Go get your wallet, Sparky.
I can't wait to read it. As a matter of fact, I hope the left comes at South Park with guns blazing. Fully Semi-Automatic Assault Guns too. Because here's the brilliance of the cartoon. The more you complain about it, the funnier it makes the show. For over twenty years, regardless of if you were on the left or the right, if you complained YOU were the one who looked like a giant jerkface. South Park has always been equal opportunity. Though now the left has become the wing of anti-free speech douchecanoes, assclowns like Dan O'Sullivan find free expression problematic. He can't just turn off the show. No, no, he has to write essays. About jokes. Which, hey, he's free to do. We do it. It's just we're not looking for alt-right conspiracies from a crude cartoon which derives a lot of jokes from scatological humor.
By all means, make South Park the new battlefield in the culture war. I've been waiting on a sequel to Bigger, Longer, Uncut.
