South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are far from leftists. They probably coincide more with political libertarianism, agorism or Austrian economics than any other ideologies (although I’m sure they don’t wish to be forced into any label). Nevertheless, on many occasions their ideas and beliefs, as they communicate them through their comedy, coincide with many ideas usually associated with the left. Their show, although it may sound unlikely to many, has tremendous potential as an instrument of political agitation and even education. We will occasionaly share some episodes that exemplify this potential. It’s always good to sometimes think, analyze, or reflect on subjects while laughing out loud.
In the episode “Cartman Sucks,” a misunderstanding lands Butters in a “Pray away the gay Camp.” Listen to what Butters has to say to the Christian camp leaders who continue to harass young boys because they are “confused.”
“My name’s Butters. I’m eight years old, blood type O, and I’m bi-curious. And even that’s okay. Because if I’m bi-curious, and I’m somehow made from God, then I guess God must be a little bi-curious himself!”
