Default South Park Must Be Destroyed!

Personally, I'm very angry at South Park and the people who think it's better than Family Guy. They must be punished and the show must die, because it's not cool to watch a series where one of the boys thinks it's okay to discriminate the Jews just because Hitler did it, and he was sicker than John Hinkley.

That show makes fun of everybody, regardless of race, religion/cults (just ask Scientologist Isaac Hayes, oh...wait...he's dead), color, creed, sexual preference, or just general jackassery.

I think it's downright funny, and it's been around for years. Highly doubt it's going away anytime soon.


Best thing to do....don't watch.

Hell, Family Guy had a banned episode ("When You Wish Upon A Weinstein") because the Jewish community in general thought it was an offensive episode. And that show makes fun of everybody too.

Besides, none of it (South Park or Family Guy) is real. If we were to quantify South Park in realistic terms, then fine, Eric Cartman (fatass to everyone else) is a misguided little boy who just needs to be made to understand that Jewish folk are generally good folk, and that Hitler was a bad man who did horrible things to those people. Unfortunately, Cartman is raised by a single mom who is an airheaded ***** who doesn't know the first thing about what her son is up to. Fortunately, Cartman does have Kyle, Stan, Kenny (is he still around?), and Butters to keep him in line...even though they have the roughest time doing it.

Both South Park and Family guy push it to the edge on who they make fun of. So South Park made fun of the Jews. Family guy made fun of people with AIDS and Down Syndrome. There both the same.

Well, it's different with Family Guy because I think they're honest about it.

As well. With a decided preference for South Park. Or rather

I hate both shows.
They're degenerate forms of entertainment. I'd rather view psychologically up building than the desensitizing shock tactics.

Me Too!!! Well, the degenerate part I totally admit to when it comes to crude comedy!!

Though those shows are not really doing much for me lately.

I don't think South Park is about "shock tactics". I think by making fun of something... there is something to be learned. The point is Cartman is an a$$hole and does not know it! The other boys always set him straight ot offer the counter view.

Family Guy may be out for more "shock tactics", but I still think the very fact they generate discussion is a GOOD thing.

I think South Park has a certain quality, because it makes fun of all the things that usually are taken very serious and only talked about politically correct. By using such an offensive kind of dealing with hot topics South Park forces its audience to think about them.

BTW: Those who always offer the moral of the story are usually not on Cartman's side
