South Park’s Politics

Matt and Trey aren’t on your side.  

“It was just lame, that’s exactly what we’re talking about–people trying to claim the show,” said Matt, who in 2005 announced “I hate conservatives, but I really fucking hate liberals.” When I asked him about the quote, Trey responded, “It’s all based on saying the shocking thing. We used to have a great time going to Hollywood parties and saying ‘I think George Bush is doing a great job.’ We’d clear out the room. I used to love it.

Both men were adamant that the show has no political affiliation. “I would never want the show to be a Democrat show or Republican show, because for us the show’s more important than that. It isn’t for everybody else in the world, but it is for us. We don’t want you to come to it thinking, ‘These guys are going to bash liberals,'” Matt explained.

They are almost certainly libertarians personally (even if they don’t like the label) but I believe they’re being honest when they say the show doesn’t take political sides.  They’re looking for the laugh and looking to skewer anyone who needs it.  

Neither Stone nor Parker will delineate his political views, and both contend that the libertarian label, which has been applied to them in recent years, is not entirely appropriate.

    It does feel like that a lot of the time, doesn't it?
