From yesterday’s Fresh Air,
GROSS: … Now, people are always confused about whether you’re liberal or conservative, since you mock all political sides.
PARKER: Yeah, we’re confused, too.
STONE: We’re working out our confusion on the air.
PARKER: We’re really jealous of all these people that have it really – seem to have figured it out because we’re pretty confused.
GROSS: Seriously, are you political?
PARKER: Well, we talk about it. I mean, it’s interesting, and it becomes we’re, you know, adults that live in the world. But I don’t think we’re not very overtly – we’re not really overtly political.
STONE: Like, I guess our political attitude is “South Park” is bigger than both the Republicans and the Democrats. And, of course, that’s a ridiculous statement to everyone in the world but me and Trey, it’s just, it’s more like our show is more important than and we would hate the show to feel like, oh, this is where we put our politics in because we want this side to win.
You know, we like working out our stuff on you know, in the show, and we like talking about those issues and talking about the emotions behind the issues, especially, because that’s where a lot of the fodder comes from, but we would never want people to think that this show is a Democrat show or a Republican show and vote this way because of this. That’s just, like, it feels dishonest to the show, you know.
