‘South Park’ Trolls Kaepernick with ‘Cops are Pigs’ National Anthem
Fresh off of a season that took merciless aim at the absurdity of social justice warriors and overly politically correct culture, South Park returns on Wednesday for its 20th season by diving head-first into another controversy — the Colin Kaepernick-inspired protest demonstrations during the National Anthem.
In a teaser for the new season posted to the show’s official Twitter account Monday night — just as the San Francisco 49ers kicked off their season-opening game against the Los Angeles Rams — the South Park gang sings an “updated” version of the National Anthem that would perhaps be more in tune with the quarterback’s feelings about policing in America.
“Colin Kaepernick is great/Cops are pigs, cops are pigs/Wait, someone just took my stuff, I need to call the cops,” the group, fronted by Randy Marsh and Gerald Broflovski, sings to the tune of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
“Oh no, I just said cops are pigs/Who’s gonna help me get my stuff?/Why did I listen to Colin Kaepernick, he’s not even any good,” the song continues. “Oh, I just got all my stuff back/Cops are pigs again, cops are pigs/Colin Kaepernick’s a good backup.”
