South Park

Signs Of The Time, Part 111

Truly a sign for once in this long-running series of posts.

Seen in Muncie, Indiana, recently was a billboard displaying the following:

Hate Cops?
The Next Time You Need Help
Call A Crackhead.

I understand the “advice” has since been withdrawn from the billboard after some person(s) was offended.

Others are citing this “retreat” as one more example of political correctness run amok, and are gladly offering to assist said person(s) back to their “safe space”…

Quote For The Week

From episode 1610, “Insecurity,” of the animated sitcom South Park on the Comedy Central television network:

Spokesman: [in a commercial] Protecting your home and your family is hard enough! But sometimes alarms on your doors and windows aren’t enough! A new security system allows not only for your doors and windows to be monitored, but your fear levels as well. [a 3-D schematic of a house is shown, with a person in it] A security system that is actually inside you. It’s called IN-security.
Husband: [with wife and twin daughters] We’ll never forget the day we took our twin daughters to the beach.
Stranger: Hehe, what cute twins.
Wife: Thanks.
Stranger: They’re so adorable [whips out a crowbar and assumes a menacing posture. The wife instinctively tries to protect the girls] that I’m gonna bash their f*****g heads in! [the alarm goes off and the stranger runs away, dropping the crowbar. The husband receives the call]
Peter: This is Peter with INsecurity. Is everything alright?
Husband: A white man just tried to murder our twin girls.
Peter: I have a police car on their way with blankets and cocoa. [Next shot is of the whole family in blankets and sipping cocoa at the beach, with police cars around them and police officers investigating]
Husband: I only hope other have people have INsecurity to protect their families.
[A shoe store. A woman is getting her son new shoes]
Shoe Salesman: Well, how’s the shoe fit, pal?
Boy: I think it fits pretty good.
Shoe Salesman: Well okay, hehe, let’s see if it fits better than this KNIFE THROUGH YOUR F*****G SKULL, BASTARD?! [gets out a large knife and slashes the air with it.]
Boy: Aaahh! [jumps into his mom’s arms and the alarm goes off. The salesman drops the knife and runs off. The phone rings and the mom answers it]
Mom: Hello?
David: This is David with INsecurity. Is everything alright?
Mom: [voice breaking] No, a while shoe salesman tried to murder my son.
David: Hold tight. Police are on their way with blankets and cocoa. [next scene, mom and son are in blankets and sipping cocoa while the police investigate]
Spokesman: Don’t let your family become another statistic. Have piece of mind with… [the new company logo appears, with “Custom installation for only $99.”] INsecurity.

“Police are on their way with blankets and cocoa.”

Remember. When seconds count… the police are just minutes away.

Life Imitates Cartoons: Net Migration From Mexico To U.S. Stops, May Have Reversed

I’ll admit it- all I kept thinking about while reading the following was that (Comedy Central) South Park episode “Last of the Meheecans.” D’Vera Cohn, Ana Gonzalez-Barrera, and Jeffrey Passel wrote on the website of the Pew Hispanic Center (a project of the Washington D.C.-based nonpartisan “fact tank” Pew Research Center) yesterday:

The largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States has come to a standstill. After four decades that brought 12 million current immigrants—more than half of whom came illegally—the net migration flow from Mexico to the United States has stopped—and may have reversed, according to a new analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center of multiple government data sets from both countries.

The standstill appears to be the result of many factors, including the weakened U.S. job and housing construction markets, heightened border enforcement, a rise in deportations, the growing dangers associated with illegal border crossings, the long-term decline in Mexico’s birth rates and changing economic conditions in Mexico…

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Border enforcement, deportations, and dangerous illegal border crossings have been part of the story for a while now. If anything, factor in the violence related to the drug cartels and one might think there’s additional motivation for a Mexican citizen to head north.

So I wonder if the prospective Mexican immigrants aren’t mainly concerned about the “changing economic conditions” going on in “El Norte” and are deciding they’re better off staying put south of the border?

In which case, what does that say about us/U.S.?

You can read the entire report on the Pew Hispanic Center website here.
