what would that have done. "alright well you guys censored us so we quit. we showed you!"
makes no sense.
Exactly. Pack up their show and go elsewhere. If they're making a good product there'll be buyers for it on another network, whether it's South Park or some other creation. Instead they caved and kept getting their paycheck.
This show is a cancer on our culture. It does nothing constructive. It celebrates offensiveness and prides itself on its shock value; it considers the outrage it evokes a badge of honor. It purports to celebrate First Amendment freedoms by cleverly lampooning common social mores, but what it's really doing is selling vulgarity to an audience too ill-educated and so lacking in discernment that they can't see what it is they're being sold.
South Park is the Dogs Playing Poker
of the fine art world which television can be. Unfortunately, those who watch it are convinced they're viewing a Picasso.
I guess you can put enough spices on a bowl of MOD EDIT
and someone, somewhere will tell you it tastes good.
I support the right to Free Speech, and I would fight to protect South Park's right to exist. I would at the same time hope that we as a culture would be above such things.
If these are your heroes, you have a lot of learning to do about what a true hero is or the character, quality and comportment a hero should exhibit.
