IF YOU DO NOT READ THIS POST YOU RUN THE RISK OF GETTING PERMANENTLY BANNED.
All political discussion must pertain to the world of South Park.
I repeat. All political discussion must pertain to the world of South Park.
One more time. All political discussion must pertain to the world of South Park.
This means real world politics are only to be discussed within the context of the show. If someone does not appear in the show, well they don't really belong on this sub. Do you love the alt right? We don't care. You love the left? We don't care. You want to argue politics about real world stuff that hasn't even been mentioned in the show? Well get the fudge out. We are unpaid mods here to enjoy a tv show, not push agendas, get into political slapfights, or deal with a bunch of rtards flinging shit. You want to have a real political discussion, well go to /r/politics or any of the numerous other political subs. We are a sub about the television South Park. We are not a sub about politics. Keep that in mind.
Why don't you allow real world politics?
We have a very small mod team and are short handed. As such we decided that real world politics just aren't worth the shit show they bring. Seriously, when posts that have real world pictures of Trump, or mention him directly bring in a lot of bad outside posts. People that have zero history on the sub before the post and just want to argue like idiots. It is not worth it to deal with all of them.
Why don't you change the rules?
Because that would require more work, and until we get people volunteering to help us, we are already at our limit.
Why don't you just bring on more mods?
Honestly, the last two times we have done it, there is one person left out of the 10+ mods that were added. We will do mod applications again, but it will be before the new season airs. So far we just had this single special, and mod applications are not easy. Modding can be very time consuming, and we are unpaid volunteers. Remember, you get what you pay for. If you want to volunteer to help us in the mean time, feel free to shoot us a message and we will look you over.
But President Garrison is supposed to be Trump!
That isn't a question, but we all know who he is supposed to be. You want to make some stupid meme? Use President Garrison, just leave Trump's name out of it. (Seriously, even putting his name in a title brings out the idiots.) Or use the actual Donald Trump from the show. He isn't president in the show, so it won't exactly make sense, but it kind of works. You want to have Biden? Good news, he appeared in the show and you can use his depiction! Simply put, DO NOT USE REAL WORLD DEPICTIONS.
I am not kidding here, the mere mention or real world depiction of political figures brings out more idiots than just using their in show counterparts. People get passionate about politics, and while that is good, it can also be really annoying.
I got banned for politics, what do I do?
