"Go God Go" is the twelfth episode in the tenth season of the American animated television series South Park.The 151st episode of the series overall, it originally aired on Comedy Central in the United States on November 1, 2006. As a mirror, South Park has tracked the right’s various and often fleeting obsessions with of-the-moment exemplars of what it imagines as liberal excess, from racial diversity (the show’s main recurring black character is a young boy named, very on-the-nose, “Token”) to gender-inclusive bathrooms to what it presents as the invariably hyperbolic rhetoric of the environmental movement. Plus, there's a … “South Park as Healing Mechanism.” “I have struggled with ADD, anxiety, and depression since childhood,” Timpf confesses, until the liberating, take-no-prisoners, pan-directional offensiveness of the show “gave me permission to laugh at myself when it came to something that everyone around me had only ever treated painfully seriously.” The people who are “accusing South Park of ruining our culture” only “think that they’re being compassionate.” In reality, they’re selfish and self-centered; far from standing up for the targets of the show’s derision and mockery, they are trying to deny people access to the psychic healing that only broad, vulgar satire can provide. The disease will be absurd and gross (South Park has always been fond of playing fluid discharge for humor). ", "Casa Bonita" was written and directed by series co-founder Trey Parker. Oh well.

This was vulgarity deployed not as a fantasy of liberation from sexual and social strictures, as it had been in the hated 1960s, but as a cudgel against a cultural and political leftism that sought to carve out safe spaces (a term that, of course, became a great target of conservative mockery) for various minorities and historically disadvantaged people. If I could travel back in time now and meet myself circa, say, 2005, just a few years out of college and struggling to figure out how to become a writer, and tell that younger me that in 15 years, nearing 40 years old, I’d be locked in the house during a plague year writing a review of the political valences of. Follows the misadventures of four irreverent grade-schoolers in the quiet, dysfunctional town of South Park, Colorado. Timpf, in turn, was responding to a Twitter thread by the writer Dana Schwartz, who had tweeted, “In retrospect, it seems impossible to overstate the cultural damage done by SOUTH PARK, the show that portrayed earnestness as the only sin and taught that mockery is the ultimate inoculation against all criticism.” Schwartz went on to say that the show taught “that it was always cooler to be reactionary and contrarian, and anyone who criticizes anything is ‘offended’ and that’s the *real* problem.” She lamented that a “generation of boys [had] internalized it into their personalities.”. In 2015, National Review published a piece called “South Park Shows How to Defeat the Social-Justice Warriors,” which lamented the excesses of “PC culture” while complaining about such conservative bugaboos as Whole Foods and Lena Dunham. Like Donald Trump himself—surely as close to a grown-up Eric Cartman (from his gross appetites to his whiny, self-serving obscenity) as we are ever going to get—the show’s political and cultural obsessions seem beamed in from the 1980s and ’90s, despite its frequently “ripped from the headlines” plot devices. Trapped In The Closet (Season 9, Episode 12) Ironically, Timpf’s National Review article, an ostensibly conservative reaction to Schwartz’s supposedly tearful liberalism, adopts precisely the doe-eyed, softhearted, cod-therapeutic language of the self-caring left. The officer asks Cartman if it was worth it, to which the latter responds, "Totally. He manages to muster an almost hilariously incompetent response, precisely the sort of discredit to the idea that people and institutions can engage in collective efforts at all, let alone in the face of crisis. Cartman relocates Butters to a broken-down gas station and he locks him in an abandoned refrigerator for his protection after pretending to get bit by a radioactive cannibal. He is finally cornered by the police, Sheila, and the boys. In this same episode, the flummoxed principal barely knows what “trans” means, and Mr. Garrison wearily advises her to just give Cartman what he wants—a cynical gambit to avoid a scandal. The show's writing team had the idea of Cartman convincing Butters to disappear long before the episode's production. [1] Like many South Park episodes, it was produced in the week preceding its broadcast. Cartman's too busy to notice as he plans to propel himself into the future on the precise release date of the newest, hottest game console.

[3] It was a Thursday—one week before the episode's airdate—when the show's writing team developed the concept that Cartman would be invited to a birthday party if Butters were unable to go. The book itself is a hasty, tossed-together tour d’horizon of conservative media in the early 2000s: the Drudge Report, talk radio, Fox News, the “Blogosphere.” It devotes only one chapter to “South Park Anti-Liberals,” and only half of that—about a dozen pages in this barely 150-page book—to South Park itself, before pivoting to talk about the anti-P.C. At SpaceX, Cartman tries to convince the scientists that going to Mars is a bad idea.

[2] One of the episode's plot elements, that Cartman convinces Butters that an asteroid is going to hit Earth, existed for a "long time" before the episode entered production. Writing about South Park, a silly cartoon, in the middle of an eminently predictable and yet entirely unanticipated global pandemic has an uncanny quality, like meeting a time traveler and realizing that he is you. Put Nixon’s lines in the adenoidal voice of Eric Cartman and Ehrlichman’s in the voice of Cartman’s perennially abused sidekick, Butters, and you have an entirely believable snippet of a lost episode of South Park.

Butters' disappearance causes a town search party and several days later, the police announce that they will be checking ducts, wells, and bomb shelters, potentially ruining Cartman's evil plan. In other words, contra Schwartz’s complaint that “a generation of boys” had “internalized” South Park’s reactionary, mockery-as-virtue ethos, South Park externalized a long-extant but little-acknowledged tendency with American culture, and particularly within American conservative political culture.

An exploration into the history of South Park, its unique writing style, and the episode that sparked its downfall to mediocrity. The soul of conservative America just might be found in a cartoon about a gang of vulgar little boys.

Now this was, and is, the real heart of modern American conservatism, from Nixon moaning about Jews, Negroes, and fags on his secret White House recordings, to George W. Bush’s dick-first aircraft-carrier landing to pronounce “Mission Accomplished,” to Donald Trump’s, well, many personal peccadilloes. We were even friends with guys like Eric Cartman, an obscene, self-pitying little anti-Semite, for reasons we could not quite articulate or explain. The sets included brief audio commentaries by Parker and Stone for each episode. The inclusion of Casa Bonita was based on the crew's memories of going there as children; Parker, co-creator Matt Stone, director Eric Stough, and other members of the show's staff had visited the restaurant before. In the end, everyone is told to use whatever bathroom they are most comfortable with, and the private room is given over to the people who are uncomfortable potentially sharing a bathroom with an actual trans person.

In the episode, Cartman misleads Butters into going missing in order to gain an invitation to Kyle's birthday party. This episode starts with a Mormon family moving to South Park. This group, too, had aesthetic affinities for the South Park style, its envelope-pushing use of anti-Semitism, rape, disease, and violence as humor, ever-excused as we were only joking. Life will go on. If I could travel back in time now and meet myself circa, say, 2005, just a few years out of college and struggling to figure out how to become a writer, and tell that younger me that in 15 years, nearing 40 years old, I’d be locked in the house during a plague year writing a review of the political valences of South Park, which would still be on the air, I’d have probably gone to business school sooner than I did. He later recycled this column in his 2019 book, White, which sought to self-diagnose the “vague yet almost overwhelming and irrational annoyance” the author felt about being made to feel badly for being white, rich, etc. This sort of theorizing is also indicative of the liberal left’s occasional impulse to adopt what is itself a deeply reactionary framework for interpreting cultural phenomena.

He then guides Butters out of the shelter, making him wear a box over his head so he cannot see that everything is really okay under the pretense of protecting him from the radiation. For example, in the eighteenth-season episode “The Cissy,” which tries to satirize the then-hot topic of so-called transgender bathrooms, Cartman transparently feigns that he is trans in order to access the girl’s bathroom for his own convenience. If the defining characteristic of left politics, even the callow, timid, technocratic liberalism of the modern Democratic Party, is a desire to answer the old, animating question, “What is to be done?” then its conservative opposite is a desire to enforce precisely that popular paralysis that renders all action futile, all improvement vanity, all solidarity fraud, all hope fantasy. Quite the opposite. Are all administrators like this? It is a sort of singular and universal commandment: Moses gone up the mountain to return with a single tablet that proclaims, “Stop complaining!”. Conservatives have been trying to claim South Park as their own since the George W. Bush administration. She and the other boys are at first relieved to learn that Butters is all right, but then, they learn of Cartman's part in him going missing, and they all angrily confront him, notifying him that the police are on their way. Now? South Park has dominated the headlines in its twenty-third season, particularly after an episode about Chinese regulations led to the long-running series … Threadbare as Anderson’s book is, it does contain within it an intimation of a tendency in conservatism that Donald Trump would eventually ride into office: that the animal spirits of popular American conservatism lay not in the corporate libertarianism of the sort that the Manhattan Institute itself has long championed, but in an ethnonationalism that increasingly expressed itself in various forms of jocular oafishness. Now, not three weeks into that response, he has already grown tired of it and has publicly speculated that perhaps the best response is no response. But poets are not, alas, “the unacknowledged legislators of the world,” as Shelley had it, no matter how much we still wish that it might be true.

[7], Parker has called "Casa Bonita" among his top ten favorite episodes of South Park. Like South Park’s own essential premises, it judges the crime of bringing things up—grand injustices or just hurt feelings—to be worse than any unfairness, inequity, or simple rudeness. Conservatives like South Park because it keeps saying that things are fine, and that even when things are getting worse, they’re as good as you ought to get. They received clearance from Casa Bonita to use their name and likeness, which Parker and co-creator Matt Stone thought was very unusual, making them "even cooler. It has not aged well, to say the least.). Its elastic, capacious usage has grown to encompass just about anything conservative political culture would prefer not to talk about. Cartman subsequently tells Butters that a meteor is about to hit Earth and hides him in a bomb shelter, so that he does not appear in time for the trip.

If all this is not really funny, it is at least entertaining. It will probably get worse. Of the hundred or so Google and Yelp reviews I've read about Casa Bonita, a solid half of them mentioned Cartman or South Park as their motivation for dining. South Park is quite often a show to watch in spite of the animation, but here it adds to the texture of the episode brilliantly. "The Biggest Douche in the Universe" is the 15th episode of the sixth season of the American animated series South Park, and the 94th episode of the series overall. The third episode of season 23 sees Randy boasting about the $300,000 he made from brutally murdering Winnie-the-Pooh, highlighting the fact that South Park has now made it to 300 episodes … “I should have realized,” murmurs a dour Nick Stahl in Terminator 3, that “our destiny was never to stop Judgment Day; it was merely to survive it.”, South Park itself feels like a transmission from what should have been an alternate past, the one that the desperate time traveler from our time went back to, Terminator-style, in order to try to prevent our present from happening, but which, in utter failure, he only managed to cement into place. It is not at all “impossible to overstate” South Park’s damage to American culture; quite the opposite: It is very, very easy to do so.
