Posted on 09/06/2004 8:16:21 AM PDT by Rise of South Park Republicans
Forget about pricey summer blockbusters. Forget the films vying for Oscar that are all crunched into December releases. This year, it's all about pre-election films. Not the incendiary "Fahrenheit 9/11," not the remake of "The Manchurian Candidate" that mysteriously erased Red China as the villain, replacing it with an American corporation, but a film that promises to strike even more anger into the hearts of angry liberals everywhere.
When the buzz first started for "Team America: World Police," bloggers theorized what the Trey Parker/Matt Stone send-up of action movies would entail--these are, after all, the gents who gave the world Comedy Central's "South Park." Then juicy tidbits started dribbling into the Internet Movie Database, like the plot outline: "Marionette superheroes fight to end terrorism and put tired celebrities out of their misery." Who could oppose that?
There's an "uncreative way" to mock liberals? Oh well, give me a movie featuring a Michael Moore puppet grasping a hot dog in each hand with mustard stains pocking his shirt, and I'm there faster than you can wail "Palme d'Or." As a "South Park" fan from season one, I was sucked in by the trailer, laughed until I was in pain, and will be there on opening day. Messrs. Parker and Stone rushed to get the movie done for an Oct. 15 release date, and the clip shown at a recent comics convention featured the Kim Jong Il puppet casting Hans Blix into a shark tank. Imagine--a movie that shows the bad guys as bad and U.N. weapons inspectors as feckless. Who could miss this?

Thought you guys might enjoy it.
Awaiting Old Crackers commentary.
I enjoyed it. Particularly the part about the lib complaining that they should leave politics out of their work.
Forget about O.C. He's got sand in his vagina!
I may seem nuts, but I think the South Park boys will come through for us. One thing they really get bothered by is 'high minded' people too big for their britches. Just ask Christopher Reeves and Barbara Streisand.
The libs are going to wish that they never heard of Michael Moore. Like radio, conservative political movies in 2008 are actually going to be effective.
Lol, I can hardly wait.
The intelligence of the Simpson Democrats is just brillant, huh? I'm wondering where they are when Futurama and Family Guy were always trashing President Bush and Republicans? Oh wait! That was okay!
On a better note: Glad to see the "Passion Of Christ" doing so well in DVD distribution. Keep it up!
Yep... old cracker, where for art thou?
great article... yet another chance to get a result, when doing a google search on "South Park Republicans"....
South Park Republican. yep, that works for me!
Here is the big result of it all. We 20-somethings are not stupid. We have heard our gay, liberal professors drone on about liberalism being the salvation of all mankind, and then have lost out jobs to a gay, black dude so that the company could complete a quota. Why believe in an aging Hollywood who would go back to the days of the AIDS-less 60s so that they could hate Nixon and have free sex and smoke pot?
I have a kid and wife, and I want my money dammit.
"One promising documentary you'll find at the festival is "Michael Moore Hates America," scheduled for release this October. What could be more fitting than a young filmmaker doing exactly what the disingenuous Mr. Moore does to others--chase him around with a microphone to pen him into answering questions and torturing him in the process?
In the trailer, Mr. Moore tells a newsman that he refuses to be interviewed by Mr. Wilson because Mr. Moore doesn't appear in anything but his own films--and as he explains this, we see a scrolling list of films Mr. Moore has appeared in but not directed."
Finally, a couple of films I can go see.
Thanks for posting this :o)
Sound like anyone you know????
LOL - I just googled "disingenuous filmmaker".
Thank you Senator McCain :o)
There is a conservative film festival in Addison, TX next weekend. One of the films will be "Michael Moore Hates America." For more information see the World Net Daily site.
I'm excited to go see this movie. I agree with South Park politics more than not, and they so skewer the libs. They sometimes take shots over the right side, but hey, remember these are politicians we're talking about.
What timing.. I was just watching notwithoutmyanus lol. I can't wait to see this movie.
Reportedly, the first half is harder on conservatives, while the second half absolutely reams the lefties.
I can't wait to see this. Of course sometimes they go a little too far but I generally love the way they expose the hypocrisy of Hollywood.
Don't you like movies?
Kick A$$! </cartman>
You must respect my authoritay!
Fox will be reviving the series, but I suspect they will never get writers like Marmel to make it fun.
I love movies!
But, most of the time, they just flow right through me. I enjoy them, but then they're all gone!! ;-)
Turning 60 geezer agrees with the South Parkers...Let's put the F back in Freedom! ;^)
mid-40's and I am on board!!
That is the funniest trailer I have ever seen!! I LOVE it!
I saw the trailer in the theater recently. I almost wet my pants. Didn't, though.
I would like to register as a South Park Republican.
Moore doesn't appear in anything but his own filmsUmmm...yes, he does.....
..anytime, now. :|
Hey, I like Family Guy. I only remember one big Bush bash, and even it was rather funny.
But, South Park rocks.
I got a t-shirt saying "respect my authority" with Cartman. Just awesome.
I don't care if they skewer conservatives as long as they skewer *everybody* that acts dumb. It's not like liberals have an absolute monopoly on stupidity (although they do own all the high-rent pieces on the board, without question...)
Plus, anybody that will portray Saddam Hussein in bed with Satan has got *a lot* of political capital with me... enough to get away with quite a bit of lampooning of conservatives...
Agreed, great trailer.
