[VAT] would be essentially a tipping point that would make it impossible to counteract without a physical revolution. Just look at the UK where the people who are considered right wing extremists all essentially agree that socialized medicine is a necessity.
In addition to destroying America’s productive industrial attitude, this tax will likely destroy the economy as well.
"Overtime we will likely grow in our capabilities to deal with and mislead counter terrorism officials, but as things stand this has not been one of our areas of focus. As far as I know, this is the first work in English dealing with this subject which goes to show how far behind we are."
In the 14 years we’ve been doing South Park we have never done a show that we couldn’t stand behind. We delivered our version of the show to Comedy Central and they made a determination to alter the episode. It wasn’t some meta-joke on our part. Comedy Central added the bleeps. In fact, Kyle’s customary final speech was about intimidation and fear. It didn’t mention Muhammad at all but it got bleeped too. We’ll be back next week with a whole new show about something completely different and we’ll see what happens to it.
Q: I don't know if you've heard about this, but there have been essays written about the concept of the "South Park Republican."
TREY: Yeah, we have seen that. What we're sick of—and it's getting even worse—is: you either like Michael Moore or you wanna fuckin' go overseas and shoot Iraqis. There can't be a middle ground. Basically, if you think Michael Moore's full of shit, then you are a super-Christian right-wing whatever. And we're both just pretty middle-ground guys. We find just as many things to rip on on the left as we do on the right. People on the far left and the far right are the same exact person to us.
I think Matt and Trey generally do a really good job of highlighting the idiotic atavisms that still clench the testicles of modern society.
Seriously, this is difficult to accept considering that they have perhaps the fastest writing-to-production turnaround time ever seen in animation. South Park is known to react to events within three or four days of the occurrence. For whatever faults it may have (and it definitely has them), being non-topical is certainly not one of them.
The founder of the group goes by the name of Yousef al-Khattab, but his real name is Joseph Cohen. He was born and raised in the United States as a Jew, and holds both American and Israeli citizenship. In the late eighties, Cohen embraced an ultra-orthodox interpretation of Judaism, and began attending a yeshiva (rabbinical school). In 1998, Cohen hearkened to the Zionist call, and packed up his bags to relocate to the Israeli Occupied Territories where he became an Israeli settler. As an ardent and extreme Zionist, Joseph Cohen fell in with the Jewish fundamentalist group Shas, an extreme right-wing political party that believes in flouting international law based on their religious beliefs. Less than three years later, Cohen “converted” to Islam, moved back to the United States, and founded the most radical Islamic group in the country.
