South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker reportedly stunned a liberal Hollywood crowd this week after revealing they are proud Republicans.
After receiving a ‘Freedom Award’ from Norman Lear’s left-wing organization People for the American Way Foundation, the pair apparently revealed their true political persuasion.
“Trey Parker & Matt Stone of @SouthPark asked me to introduce them when they received a ‘freedom’ award from Norman Lear’s organization,” Larry Elder wrote on Twitter. “After they graciously accepted, they said, ‘We’re Republicans.’ Nervous laughter. They repeated, ‘No, seriously, we’re Republicans.’”

The foundation, whose opening website message calls on people to “Defeat Trump and the Right Wing in 2018,” describes itself as a “progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism.”
