South Park Takes on Social Justice Warriors, They Respond Predictably

I haven’t watched South Park in a while, but I made a point of catching the first episode of this season online. After all, there’s nothing I enjoy more than a fabulous grilling of faux-compassionate social justice warriors. And I knew I could count on Trey Parker and Matt Stone to deliver

Now, while almost every group who has ever been lampooned on South Park has taken the insult-slash-honor in stride, social justice warriors…well...didn’t. In fact, they spent hours of their life online, Tweeting and Facebooking over the unfairness of it all. They’re just trying to make the world a better place, guys. What on Earth is so funny about making the world a better place?

This week’s season premiere slapped “social-justice warriors” — extremists out to police every word for bias.

“PC Principal” takes over the school attended by Kyle, Stan, Kenny and Cartman, the four kids at the show’s heart.

Kyle gets two weeks’ detention for daring to tell a fourth-grader, “I don’t think Caitlyn Jenner is a hero” — which the principal calls “transphobic and bigoted hate speech.”

Later, PC Principal beats Cartman within an inch of his life for not falling into line.

Enter the “warriors.” Culture site Bustle complained the show made it “seem like a bad thing to strive for correct language around transgender issues.”

“Comedian” Peter Coffin spent hours tweeting about the unfairness of it all.

Film critic Bob Chipman whined that creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have “slowly morphed into the Trump of TV comedy.”

It all proved Parker and Stone right.

These people are the human equivalent of the sadface emoji.
