Political Correctness

South Park Trolls Redskins Fans in Season Opener


The 18th (!) season of South Park debuts tomorrow on Comedy Central (10 P.M ET).

The trailer for the season opener (click above) shows Eric Cartman taunting the owner of the Washington Redskins, Dan Snyder, by using the team's name for an unspecified business now that the trademark has been dropped by the U.S. government.

The ad actually aired during the Redskins game against the Eagles on Sunday, prompting Hot Air's Ed Morrissey to note, "There's trolling and then there's trolling."

Morrissey continues: "Had I heard that Parker and Stone were tackling this issue, I would have guessed that they would be poking fun at the political correctness that surrounds it rather than picking up the PC mantle."

As a long-time watcher, I've no doubt the show will delight, provoke, and edumicate us all.
