I’ve referenced the “South Park” episode mocking 9/11 conspiracy theories countless times. Now, thanks to this shortened version of the episode I found on YouTube, you’ll know just what I’m laughing about.
The premise is ridiculous. One of the boys has gone No. 2 in the school urinal, and the search is on for the culprit. This weaves into a story about 9/11 conspiracy theories and a very insecure American president.
The above clip includes Cartman’s sensational terror theory fingering Kyle, the fourth grade’s only Jew, as the mastermind behind 9/11.
A longer clip, which can be seen below, shows how Cartman’s accusations lead Kyle and Stan, his best friend, to the home of the operator of 911truth.org, where the boys are arrested for holding anthrax and taken to the White House; there President Bush kills the conspiracy theorist and brags about pulling off the self-inflicted terror attack; Kyle remains incredulous, but his conviction is fading; the boys escape and learn that though the government didn’t plan 9/11, they run all the conspiracy-theory sites claiming they did.
“So they who was responsible for 9/11?” Kyle asks at the end, more confused than when the day began.
“What do you mean?” Stan responds. “A bunch of pissed off Muslims.”
