I know this isn't going to win me any friends here...

But it needs to be said. Whoever writes Family Guy is a liberal fag. See episode 109 in particular if you don't believe me. And most of the other episodes, as well, sadly. This isn't really something I payed attention to before now. I went ahead and told my DVR to record all episodes, cause I couldn't get the damn thing to properly do what the hell I wanted. This recorded a shitload more episodes than I expected. So I figured what the hell, I'll sit here and watch em all. Fuck it.

Now I'm thinking of boycotting the show, at least in my own house. And the thing about it is, when you really pay attention, you can actually pick out the parts where they get serious, and want to send a real message. The whole show isn't just joke after joke, as many of you may think. Watch when they are saying some liberal faggotry. It does that slow close up of the camera, the characters get real serious, and they play some bleeding heart music. Usually this is when they are dissing the troops, advocating gay marriage, or showing how evil it is to own a gun. I'm sad to find out that one of my favorite shows is some stupid fuck's way of trying to push his political views. I have lost a lot of respect for the show, and I don't believe I will continue watching it. The troops thing just pushes me over the edge. The early seasons were'nt so bad, but it seems as the creator ages, he gets more and more hateful and jaded. More and more negative emotion towards good conservative ways, just like any pussy liberal. It comes through really clear in the way the jokes are told and the constant jabs at America. Like I said, I know yall are some family guy loving fools, but eh fuck it I don't know any of you anyway.

I agree with you 100%.

Stupid Park, Family Guy, American Dad, and the last few seasons of the Simpson's all fall into that category. It's irreverent, disturbing, and at some points plain disgusting. Stopped watching that garbage a long time ago. Some people find it amusing and I just see it as further evidence to the decadent decline of our society. The masses are amused by cleverly written bathroom humor mixed in with a sprinkle of anti-American sentiment. And yes, some of these stupidtoons use their show as a vehicle to make liberal political statements or jabs at conservative America. And shows like Stupid Park cross the line in a big way. Trey Parker and Matt Stone have absolutely no sense of right and wrong.

What was in that episode that was so bad?

And how can you say South Park is liberal crap? Man-bear-pig and the episode about the smug emissions from all the hybrids immediately come to mind.

And you just now noticed this?

I'll still watch. I'm quite capable of distinguishing fantasy from reality. Besides, the show is fuckin' funny.

They bash everyone lol.

Yes the last few seasons of Family Guy have slanted a bit more left for my taste but some of it is still fucking funny. Take it with a grain of salt and laugh at them taking jabs at Dubya and the rest of the right and move along.

Hmm what about that time Family guy jabbed at Barry Sorento? Oh yeah they have not, and likely will not. To them the republican party is the root of all evil. They show it's leaders in satanic cult outfits in one episode. And they constantly go on and on about how abortion is the greatest thing since sliced bread. If you actually pay attention, you start to see that they can barely mask the hatred in every other line said by any of the characters. Sad really.

Who cares? Oh noes, someone doesn't have the same beliefs as me.

And LOL @ south park being democratic, they bash equally from both sides. If someone does something stupid in the public eye, chances are south park will make fun of them.

Southpark makes episodes about people vomiting up their own feces. And Virgin Mary bleeding from the rectum. I know this because they seem to pop up a lot in online news outlets for pissing off and offending just about everyone.

That's not entertainment. That's just an indicator of how far we have fallen as a society for 1. that to be acceptable 2. people derive entertainment from it.

Sure, it's a cartoon and it's not the end of the world by any means. However, there was a day when cartoons weren't sick and twisted. It's retarded. Just like the scripted redneck violence that happens on he Jerry Springer show. Television broadcasting use to have standards. Sad, but oh well.

I'll stick with the Discovery and History channel.

Probably because the name you are looking for, is Barry Soetoro, not Sorento.


As far as Family Guy goes, it's always been that way. And it's always been funny. I can distinguish what's serious, what's not, and guess what? I don't have to pay attention to any of it....


MM2000- Give me a break. It's an ADULT cartoon, it's not a kids cartoon that airs on Saturday morning. You guys didn't have adult cartoons back in your day.

I know you guys are really gonna hate this, but it's just my observation so I'll throw it out there. I think that statistics will show that there is a correlation between higher levels of education and liberal ideals. Maybe therefore intelligence and liberal ideals? I'm not saying people with conservative ideals are stupid, but I see a lot more stupid people with conservative views than liberal ones. Check out any news story on the TV involving a tornado and a trailer park in rural Georgia or Alabama, those people voted for Bush, and they probably don't know why at that.

South Park and Family Guy tend to be appreciated more by intelligent people because the humor goes a little deeper than some other shows. So basically, the writers of the show are catering to their target audiences. Basic marketing. And yes, they are pushing their own views, but they're preaching to the choir so they're locking in their fan base too. If you happen to be intelligent (and open minded) enough to appreciate those shows and a conservative as well, you're a bit of a minority.

Flame suit on, like I said I'm definitely not trying to insult anyone, I agree with more conservative ideals than liberal ones, but I know some people are gonna get pissed over that.

:edit:
I am fans of both shows. When they make a point that I don't agree with, I accept that they're exercising their first amendment rights as well as making shitloads of money in the free market, and keep watching. You don't have to agree with everything you watch.

You should move to Austin. I see plenty of fucking liberal idiots on a daily basis (since you're bringing anecdotal evidence into the discussion).

Odd, most liberals I know are welfare people who never graduated middle school. (my father) he voted for Obama out of that hopey changey thing and just told me today how happy he was that "HIS president just extended his unemployment for the 3rd time" because he doesn't want to look for a job.

Most Conservatives I know have at least 1 degree

Oh I whole heartedly agree. I think you are 100% correct on that. But here is the thing, that separates it all. There is a big difference, between wisdom, and intelligence. Both are very good to have. But you can be intelligent as fuck and be one dumb son of a bitch, if you lack wisdom. This is where you get those college professor types, who study, and read, and research, and finally come up with this idea: "Communism is the shit!" Yeah, in a perfect world, communism/liberalism/socialism is the shit. But we will NEVER live in a perfect world, or anything even remotely similar to it. Therefore, out of wisdom, we fall back to the conservative ways to protect us and keep us safe. Turns out those intelligent people, weren't so smart after all. Cause they fail to factor in evil into all their plans. So you see, it is really the conservatives, these "uneducated people" who are really right, and the liberals are really wrong. I believe they think they are doing the right thing, but it's only cause they lack wisdom. The old proverb goes something like "A clever man will always find a way out of the situation that a wise man would never have gotten into to begin with." The wise has the power of prevention. Just like we would prevent our government from enslaving us.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are fairly conservative. Look at the ending speach to "Team America: World Police" to get an idea of what they really think.

However, Seth MacFarlane has definately tipped Family guy in the last few seasons toward the left. Definately a tipping point over the past 2 seasons.

Same with Simpsons about 6-7 years ago when all new writers got on board. Matt Groening is kind of a lib, but he isnt very political in nature. He doesnt do much with the show anymore.

I was thinking about and what I said earlier came out all wrong. It's not a question of intelligence; I guess that is split pretty evenly no matter what your ideology. But it's the same open-mindedness that causes you to believe in liberal ideals (equal rights for all, pro choice, etc.) that also allows you to appreciate a lot of that toilet humor type stuff. When I think of the stereotypical intelligent republican, he's an old white guy with money and old school ideas and if he's ever even seen South Park, he was probably offended by it. My uncle fits that bill, he just doesn't care for shows like that, so they don't really have any reason to care whether he likes what they say.

Yeah, it's kinda weird how that equal rights for all thing goes. It's got it's advantages, and disadvantages. I think we all know what they are, regardless if anyone will ever admit it. You don't have to be a hateful racist to know what I am talking about.

No, I don't. I consider myself to be intelligent, educated, and conservative, but I don't see the disadvantages to equal rights for all.

I think the show is funny and love watching it… but sometimes I just cringe at the crap they portray republicans or even southerners as. It gets on my nerves sometimes but not enough yet that I’d stop watching it.

crazy thing is I just turned 30, have a Masters degree, about to start work on my second, have a great job etc etc. I think family guy is great. Contrary to your opinion, I think the people like we saw getting off the ACORN buses to vote for Obama most likely aren't as educated as I am. I'm not saying I'm smart but I do feel like I can hold my own. I will have to admit though I've stopped watching Letterman totally now and family guy has trickled down a lot as I feel its gotten worse...but My hatred for dumbass libs that can't even spell "change" has gotten worse to so I feel where they are coming from!

I'd say that pretty much covers it. I don't see what the big deal about family guy is though, it's retarded joke , after retarded joke. most aren't that funny, just enough to make it watchable.
South park at least has a fucking plot, and goes out on a limb to deliver something worth watching. Even if it does work overly hard at insulting everyone.
South park viewers truely are equal oppurtunity haters, myself included. I still can't believe they pulled the scientology episode , it was greatness.

Wow, I have never seen an entire episode of Family Guy, yet I know that it's Liberal! I've seen bits and pieces, and maybe 90% of certain episodes, but never an entire one.

The Simpsons has moved HEAVILY to the left. I mean, it all came out of nowhere too! It'd changed. The Simpsons used to have actual "morals to the story", but now it's all about Homer doing stupid shit. And it all happened at the same time.

South Park is great! They make fun of EVERYBODY.

I used to watch "Captain Planet and the Planeteers" when I was a kid, and if you want to talk about "brainwashing", that show is a perfect example.

King of the Hill is a pretty conservative cartoon. The creator Mike Judge (who also created Beavis and Butthead), created a show called "The Goode Family" where they basically make fun of hippies and "Greenies" throughout the show.
