'South Park' Creators: Wanna Be a Punk in LA? Be a Republican
Let's take a trip in the way back machine. I'd peg this video with Trey and Matt from "South Park" from around 2004. A fan must have uploaded it a few days ago after the duo outed themselves as Republicans. Team America was just starting its journey to cult-like status. It's clear that regardless of their political opinions then or now, they aren't fans of the current president. Also, Charlie Rose still had a job. This was when he was still whipping it out in front of the gals in the secretaries' pool. Telling them Lil' Charlie needed a hug. By "Lil' Charlie," he, of course, meant his penis.
It's interesting to hear them talk about liberal groupthink back them. In comparison to what groupthink has turned into now.
The only way to be punk rock in LA is to be a Republican.
[Trey] said at a party, 'I love George Bush and I love my gun.' And this lady's face just melted off.
We've taken so many conservative ideas to task to. But we have just taken a few liberal ones and all of a sudden we're conservatives. To live in California, those are the sacred cows.
Jump forward to 2018. Substitute "California" with "every college campus in America." Plus what seems like every institution in America. Change my mind. You see this as the "punk" students try bringing us to their campus for a comedy show. Resulting in the campus thought police going absolutely bananas over the idea. If you support gun rights, believe there are only two genders, and support the free markets, you're the freak. You're the one who can't sit with the "cool kids" during recess. Which is fine. The cool kids reak of soy. It smells like failure.
Most of us just want to be, maybe not entirely "live and let live," but at the very least left alone. When we're told we're not allowed to, that's when it's time to put on our war paint.
That war paint is slowly turning into the punk movement, even now. Agree?
