whatever marginal advantage the racial justice protestors gained from being masked was greatly outweighed by the fact that the racial justice protests were larger than the covid protests by a scale or two of magnitude

i would honestly much rather watch something preachy than something deliberately bland and pointless which is why south park always beat simpsons in the power rankings for me when im playing cable roulette at least bad south park episodes are usually bad in an interesting way

I stopped watching South Park after they did that anti WGA episode, about what a decade ago now? Tough I did buy their latest videogame because I heard it was a good tactics RPG

from what Iíve seen cartman has gone from being a outright nazi shithead to being ďwokeĒ and pc to the point of parody but I donít watch it regularly so maybe the nazi stuff is still there too somewhere

tbf from i what remember cartman being a nazi wasn't them trying to endorse nazis

just like if he is woke now it's clearly them making GBS threads on woke culture

I know they backpedaled on manbearpig but the damage with that has been done. (Al Gore is still bad though for mostly unrelated reasons...)

I still kind of view Trey and Matt as a lesser evil than Seth MacFarlane.

Seth MacFarlane is clearly at a point where he hates family Guy and only does it because it gives him the money and the pull with fox to do whatever other dumb bullshit he wants to do, like his live action TNG fanfic show

He made lazy, edgelord money for decades and keeps shoving himself down everyone's throat.

He's essentially Bill Maher in the "be a racist edgelord but always flatter liberal power to build your insufferable brand" kind of way. This is probably why I find him more loathsome than Trey and Matt.

gently caress Seth MacFarlane. He's not "one of the good ones".

Trey & Matt pioneered "message first, laughs second" comedy, while MacFarlene did the same with "reference as the joke" comedy. both are essential parts of bad mainstream comedy today

so they're both terrible

dennis miller also didn't have anywhere near the cultural staying power of macfarlene, who has been a barnacle on Fox's hull for almost two decades (not including the original run and cancellation years of Family Guy)

Hot take: The left's unwillingness to embrace nu-metal is among the strongest pieces of evidence that they care more about personal image than actually working for structural change.
