Why hate when you can love?

Before I even start I just want to point out that this is not going to be a review of the “Safe Space” episode, and I will do my very best to avoid any spoilers. In fact, I will only focus on the aftermath that followed once the “Safe Space” episode had aired yesterday. So, with that said, let´s rock shall we? One more thing before I kick off though. When I wrote my “South Park season 19 “Stunning and Brave” – The swan song of the SJWs and PC bro´s” article. It was somewhat unclear if Matt Stone and Trey Parker had gone soft on us or not (a lot of fans feared that South Park would become a more political correct show, due to the nature and outcome of the “Stunning and Brave” episode). Luckily enough for us though, that was absolutely not the case. And Stone and Parker sure proved that once more in Episode 5 (“safe space”, Season 19) of South Park.

As the political incorrectness is just as high (if not more) than the previous episodes in season 19. And I´m talking about everything from “body shaming” (Protein World “Are you beach body ready”?), “safe space” (Reddit, Twitter, Facebook?) to “starving children in the third-world” (The war in Syria?). However, I have no memory of seeing this many rants, violent outbursts and hateful tweets over any of the previous South Park episodes (season 19). So I think it´s safe to say that Parker and Stone hit a nerve (or two) with the “Safe Space” episode. As the PC Bros and SJWs went full berserk mode on Twitter earlier today, thus tweets such as these (for more examples, see South Park´s offical Twitter account):

Some people like South Park, some don´t. There is no need to hate though.

south park safe space hate part 2

I´m sorry to break it for you, but South Park isn’t going to be canceled pal.

south park safe space hate part 3

I think someone needs to calm down quite a bit. It´s just a cartoon show after all.

The trolling must continue, and political correctness should always be fought wherever it exists 

Don´t get me wrong now, people are of course free to speak up their mind about things (freedom of speech). I just find it rather strange that people can hate a cartoon show so much. Because that´s exactly what South Park is, a cartoon show. Sure, South Park has always used a lot of dark humor, political correctness and satire to prove many of the points which the show has presented to its audience since the very start (1997). Nevertheless, that´s what South Park is all about, and the show was never EVER meant to be taken seriously either. In fact, the sole purpose of the show is to entertain and to make fun out of taboo subjects. In short, South Park has been acting as a political correctness air cleaner for over 18 years time now. And think what you want about Donald Trump, but his at least right about the part that political correctness (and being politically correct) is dangerous. As it makes it really hard for people to joke or talk about politically incorrect subjects, without risking huge setbacks (losing your job, family, friends, etc.). As “some” people like to play “political correctness police officers” on the Internet (and in your everyday life).

So in my opinion, Matt Stone and Trey Parker deserves some kind of “political incorrect” award for their achievements with South Park. Speaking of which, shortly after all those “I hate South Park, fu**ing faggot twats” tweets went live. The official South Park Twitter account kept on trolling the haters with tweets such as this (yes, you can actually buy yourself some PC BRO cloths via South Parks homepage right now if you feel like it):

south park safe space randy

I feel safe in my safe space, in my very own echo chamber…

south park safe space steven seagal

Not even Steven Seagal is safe from the South Park crew xD

south park clothes

Yep, you can now buy your very own PC Bro clothes via the South Park shop.

So what do I think about all of this? Well, right off the bat, I would say that I respect Stone, Trey and the South Park team a whole lot (as there are very few people who even dare to do half of the stuff that they do). As for the haters of South Park, why don´t they just stop watching the show if they hate it so much? I mean, I don´t torture myself by watching the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” show (which I don´t like), well. You get my point. However, there is one thing that I’m not 100% sure about though. And that would be the PC Bro clothes. Don´t get me wrong, I love the clothes. Still, I can´t help to wonder how long it will take before someone gets arrested (sued? Fired? Attacked by SJWs/feminists?) for wearing some of South Parks PC Bro cloths in public?

With that said, what are your thoughts on Episode 5 (“Safe Space”), season 19 of South Park, the PC Bro clothes and the South Park haters? Let us know your opinions in the comment section down below!
