South Park might be one of the only shows that call it as they see it. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone do not conform to ideologies and each episode is a satirical journey into how they view society.
Over the last few seasons, they came up with a character called “PC Principal,” who is a manifestation of the toxic politically correct culture – wearing garbage wrap-around sports shades, physically buff, defender of all women no matter the circumstances, and his main goal is to repeatedly rid society of certain non-PC language.
And if you think that it’s far-fetched, it’s not. It’s literally happening right now every single day. In fact, it happened twice in the last week to two big-time celebrities.
Many Americans are addicted to being offended.
It’s a harsh yet simple truth that will probably never change no matter the context or circumstances. Some people just crave the drama. It’s a way for them to achieve that attention that they seek.
It works on some but not on others, like those who see right through their fake outrage.
The PC Police dug way into an athlete’s past to shamelessly share a controversial homophobic slur he used multiple times on Twitter.
It happened over the weekend when NCAA football savant, Kyler Murray, won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night. Murray, who is now likely to become a star baseball player instead of entering the NFL draft, was dragged through the mud about his use of the word “queer” six years ago.
The tweet has been deleted since but to say the context is unclear is an understatement.
On February 5, Twitter account from Kori Williams said, “You goin to let talk to like that Dubb D!”
And Kyler Murray responded, “Y’all are queers.”
In fact, he’s typed the word “queer” several times on his Twitter profile. These were comments he made when he was 15-years-old.
Consequently, he deleted and apologized for his comments.
I apologize for the tweets that have come to light tonight from when I was 14 and 15. I used a poor choice of word that doesn’t reflect who I am or what I believe. I did not intend to single out any individual or group.

There’s no question that Murray shouldn’t have used that word over and over again in a derogatory way, but where it’s dicey and suspect is the timing of all of this.
The PC police waited for the opportune moment to “pounce” as soon as they achieved these amazing feats. These aren’t coincidences. This is what they do. They want to ruin careers.
There are countless times this has happened. Last week it was Kevin Hart when the Academy Awards announced he would host.
In July, Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb’s tweeted homophobic slurs magically surfaced from years earlier when he was in high school.
In fact, in July, three different MLB players’ tweets magically resurfaced forcing them all to apologize and insist that they’ve changed.
Take everything with a grain of salt when this happens. People change. And sometimes, especially in Murray’s case, they are way too young to really acknowledge the consequences of tweeting a word like “queer.” Unfortunately, that kind of jargon is quite common amongst young men, especially athletes.
Just remember that nobody’s perfect. These comments aren’t meant to be malicious but that’s how they are perceived when they resurface.
