To this day, it continues to push the envelope in order to shine a light on injustices and place a giant mirror on today's society.

Taking direct aim at the political candidacy of Donald Trump, illegal immigration, and political correctness in general, the second episode of South Park’s 19th season uses former schoolteacher, Mr. Garrison, as the stand-in for all things xenophobic. Garrison, noticing an influx of Canadians in the U.S., composes a song called “Where My Country Gone” and announces his own candidacy for president alongside running mate Caitlyn Jenner.

The episode is a fascinating time capsule when looked at through the lens of the Trump presidency, especially when Garrison proposes to build a wall between the U.S. and Canada when he hears that South Park Elementary is forcing the teachers to learn a Canadian language.

Stan’s parents come clean and apologize for lying, as do Butters’ (who hired Cartman to smear his house with feces in revenge) and tell them that drugs can lead to bad things but aren’t all bad. Cartman is then visited by his future self who is a trim, good looking CEO of a time-traveling company. But Cartman doesn’t believe him, thinking his mom paid another actor from Motivation Corp. Instead, Cartman carries on the way he always does, which changes the man into a poor, fatter version, revealing it was actually Cartman coming back from the future.

While Kenny starts to get famous and Cartman begins selling candy to other kids at fat camp, Kyle begins to suspect what Cartman is up to and figures out that he was using an imposter to pose as a skinnier version of him back home. Kyle then blackmails the imposter to act as Kenny for one final stunt—spending hours inside Mrs. Crabtree’s uterus. When the time runs out, the imposter (dressed as Kenny) flings out of her uterus, but now dead from the pressure. Cartman, of course, is kicked out of fat camp and banished from ever returning.

Cartman hates "ginger" kids—red-headed kids with pale skin and freckles—and claims they’re a scourge on society. The ginger kids in school are then treated like second-class citizens and picked on by everyone else. Kyle, Stan, and Kenny decide to teach Cartman a lesson by sneaking into his room at night, dying his hair, making his skin pale, and giving him freckled tattoos. Suddenly Cartman is the outcast, but he then rallies the gingers to rise up as a dominant race. Everything comes to a head when the gingers begin kidnapping other kids and are about to sacrifice them. It’s then that Kyle whispers into Cartman’s ear that he’s not actually ginger, causing Cartman to make an impassioned speech for everyone to get along with each other.
