Religious fundamentalists claimed that South Park was designed to “turn people gay” and “turn people away from God” when it first premiered.

When they ask “is a show appropriate for children?”, what they’re really asking is “could this show have been made in the 50s?”

That probably explains why my parents, back over 40 years ago (they’re both dead now, but my brothers still, for the most part, think like them), told me I was a white n****r! You think Southerners and Southern Baptists are racists? The Old Order Amish and Old Order Mennonites are worse!

To be fair, I can be just as racist, especially if you treat me like dogsh!t. You treat me with respect, or leave me alone, there won’t be any problems with me.

Truthfully, I no longer watch PBS, or even listen to NPR. I no longer watch PBS for the same reason I no longer watch the BBC (now that I have an IPTV subscription), ITV (with the exception of ITV4 during the day): there’s nothing interesting on (at least ITV4 still runs Jeremy Brett’s Sherlock Holmes, The Avengers, and the Sweeney.). Everything else is essentially Reality TV. (Which is why I’ve been watching all the cartoon channels and classicTV channels lately, since the neighbors complain about my singing.)

Now I’m more than convinced the Right has gone more overboard than the Left.

Here’s a novel idea: how about governing the country responsibly, rather than crucifying a fictional character on a children’s show?

Hey! Cesar! Leave us the f!ck alone!

Cancel Culture.

The right has always been there.


What do you mean?

There go my dreams of full-frontal nudity and F-bombs on network daytime television.

Go to the linked thread. They have been canceling things hundreds of years before the wokesters were born.

You mean right wingers cancelling stuff? sure, didn't they want to cancel Galileo's theory of the solar system or Copernicus's theory of the universe or Charles Darwin's theory of evolution or more recently the depiction of blacks, women, gays in the media?

Science, ethics and equality never sat comfortably with the "rugged individualist mind"
