South Park: Band In China
Parker and Stone did a great job with this episode. They not only skewer China's Communist Party, but China collaborators (such as Disney and the NBA). I don't want to give it away but the Disney segment is especially funny. Not surprisingly--South Park is now really banned in China. That was going to happen anyway. Google and other tech oligarchs have helped China be able to ban any internet content they find the least bit objectionable.
Parker and Stone are who they are. Not everyone can be principled like Thomas Friedman!
OFFICIAL APOLOGY TO CHINA FROM TREY PARKER AND MATT STONE.

#FentanylChina is killing Americans by the tens-of-thousands per year, putting their Muslim minority in concentration camps, oppressing Hong Kong, and stealing our technology. But on the plus side, they watch American basketball, so let’s not be all impulsive. https://t.co/cGnhaHzEfI— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) October 8, 2019
Do the NBA stars with their massive shoe contracts even realize that the shoes are made by actual slaves in China?— Michael Haz (@Michael_Haz) October 8, 2019
Or are they too occupied complaining that the team owners who pay $$millions in player salaries are *slave owners*?
