South Parks Takes on Controversy Over Christopher Columbus
Before the NFL kerfuffle, there was a national "controversy" over problematic, historical statues (see Video: Vandals Spray ‘Racist Anthem’ on Statue of Francis Scott Key and Chicago Pastor Wants to Remove George Washington Monument Because Slavery). South Park has you covered, using the "controversy" as a veritable punching bag.
And yes, this is chock full o' cuss words. So like, NSFW disclaimer and all that jazz.
RANDY MARSH: (randomly calling people) You live in Columbus, Ohio, is this correct? Yeah, you racist piece of s***. You heard me, you're an intolerant pig. Oh, you're not? You just choose to live in a city named for ethnic cleansing? F*** you! Rename your city, @$$hole!
STAN MARSH: Dad, c'mon. We get your point but don't you think you're over doing it?
RANDY MARSH: You have to over do it in today's society anymore. You can't be subtle or nuanced. Otherwise, critics go, "Wow, what was the point of that?"
The whole episode is worth your time. It also touches on victim culture, schools overreacting to a single person complaining, and the liberal white guilt that fuels a lot of these protests over statues.
Plus, Randy has an unrequited love affair with a Native American chief.
A lot of what the left gets themselves into is worthy of mockery. Good to see South Park never lets dumbassery go to waste.
