The Simpsons, perhaps the most celebrated comedy show in television history, has been running continuously since 1989 without issue.
But today was a tragic day in the history of the show.
The leftist fun police, hell-bent on sterilizing society of anything remotely humorous, have mugged beloved slushee slinging Kwik-E-Mart owner Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.
The politically correct left have astutely observed that Apu is portrayed as an Indian, has a thick accent, and runs convenience store. This, they say, is an evil stereotype and akin to crimes against humanity.
Normal people recognize for what it actually is – a joke in cartoon television series.
Today, the left lost its collective mind over the way The Simpsons addressed the “Apu issue” in last night’s episode.
“What am I supposed to do?” asked Marge, a character in the show.
“It’s hard to say,” replied Lisa, Marge’s daughter. “Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect. What can you do?”
“Some things will be dealt with at a later date,” Marge said.
“If at all,” Lisa added.
You can watch the clip here.
And with that subtle middle finger to the joy-sucking left, hilarity ensued.
The Simpsons dismissing The Problem With Apu as "political correctness" was bad enough, but having it come from Lisa Simpson felt cruel.
Lisa has always been about open-mindedness and re-examining her values when challenged by perspective.

“The Simpsons dismissing The Problem With Apu as “political correctness” was bad enough, but having it come from Lisa Simpson felt cruel,” tweeted Beth Elderkin, a writer at io9. “Lisa has always been about open-mindedness and re-examining her values when challenged by perspective. Real Lisa would not approve.”
Here’s the thing, Beth. “Real Lisa” does not exist. After all, the show is a cartoon, and the characters are completely fictional. Such critical analysis of The Simpsons rivals only liberal arts college courses in uselessness to society.
“‘The Simpsons’ Responds to Criticism About Apu with Dismissal,” bleakly reads a headline from the former paper of record, The New York Times.
“Why ‘The Simpsons’ Response to the Apu Controversy was so Heartbreaking,” says an Entertainment Weekly headline. Big League Politics was so heartbroken that we could barely muster up the grit to publish this article.
A Vanity Fair Headline says “The Simpsons Still Doesn’t Understand the Problem with Apu.” This seems to be a mischaracterization. The Simpsons absolutely understands “the problem” with Apu, which is that “the problem” is non-existent. They show simply will not cower to the social justice mob, and that burns leftists more than they can express.
The controversy around Apu began a year ago documentary called The Problem with Apu was released.
Kal Penn was one of the main interviewees in the film.
Penn is a familiar figure in American culture. He is a Democrat, and was Barack Obama’s Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Outreach. He is best known, though, for his acting. He has had roles in the television shows Superhuman, Designated Survivor, House, and How I Met Your Mother, among others.
But most significantly, Penn made a fortune and became a household name in 2004 after starring in the hit comedy film Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, where he played – you guessed it – a stereotypical Indian guy. The film grossed nearly $24 million, and spawned two (really bad) sequels. Apparently, the irony is lost on both Penn and his leftist friends.
Aziz Ansari is also interviewed in the film. Ansari, also a multi-millionaire, is one of the main characters in the show Parks & Rec, which is fraught with jokes about his Indian heritage.
Classic Hollyweird. These freaks have the self-awareness level of a tin can, yet they claim to be America’s moral conscience, standing up against the unbearable social injustice of “insensitive” comedy cartoons.
Good on The Simpsons for sticking to their guns.

EXPOSED: Peter Strzok Grew Up In Iran, Worked As Obama and Brennan’s Envoy To Iranian Regime
A former co-worker of Peter Strzok tells Big League Politics about Strzok’s extensive background in the intelligence community, including the fact that he grew up in Iran. Many intelligence officers like Strzok are complete ghosts with questionable history and gaps in their life story. But now we have some insight. (RELATED: Strzok Worked For CIA And FBI At Same Time, According To Document).
Peter Strzok was born in the late 1960’s – he attended the American School in Iran up until 1978 when it closed down and then he attended the American School in Saudi Arabia. He supposedly attended a Catholic School, St. John’s Prep in Minneapolis (the school refused to confirm or deny attendance) and then completed a Bachelors at Georgetown and some form of graduate degree after that.
The truth is that after Peter Strzok III turned 18 his life is arcane, which is the usual story of many like him. Did you know that Peter Strzok II (Strzok’s father) and Hillary Clinton have a lot in common? It turns out after advocating for Khomeni in Iran and then working in Saudi Arabia to calm the waters of an Iranian government (appeasing them with anti-Semitic rhetoric), Strzok’s father Strzok II also dabbled in “charity work.” Strzok’s father was involved in so-called charity work in Haiti but also helped dismantle and reassemble Upper Volta..now known as Burkina Faso.
Despite Deep State efforts to scrub information, the Internet is forever. Below you will see a very controversial happening in the early Eighties. Peter Strzok II (Strzok’s father, also known as Peter Strzok Sr.) was an employee of Catholic Relief Services and was interviewed by the New York Times in 1985 over his testimony or statements regarding mishandling money intended for Ethopia. In the article he identifies himself as a former employee of the charity and he is a retired US Army Corps Engineer who served the agency in Africa and Haiti. So Peter Strzok II worked in Haiti with a charity? That sounds eerily familiar. Can we all guess which charities partnered to help Haiti?
The Clinton Foundation and The Catholic Relief Services (CRS) seem to work in tangent. Coincidence? Peter Strzok Sr. was actually the director of CRS in Haiti. If we look into CRS financials they seem to overlap and feed into Clinton Global initiatives and balance sheets.
In the early 80’s Upper Volta was in turmoil. It is said that mineral disputes with neighboring countries brought about great duress and so in 1985 the country of Upper Volta ceased to exist and was then named Burkina Faso during Strzok II’s term there. Specifically, in 1981 he was advised of a government visit to Upper Volta, which places him in Upper Volta for a period of 4 years as his son Strzok III was at the American School in Saudi Arabia from 1978- 1980. This happened after their sudden move from Tehran when Khomeni attained power over the Shah. Looks like whenever there is a regime change in modern history a Strzok is lying in the shadows waiting.
We know Peter Strzok III, the man who sent those vile text messages about our President. The man who was biased and wanted to ensure a Clinton Presidency was raised in Iran and Saudi Arabia.
Our source reveals how Strzok and his father both talked about Iran favorably and both accidently reminisced about the rose water smell of the ju-jeh kebab by Shemiran Hill… something that disappeared after 1987 and only those who are old enough to remember can discuss.
Peter Strzok’s Persian is impeccable.
Our insider tells us that Peter Strzok III is the key Middle Eastern Intel operative for the Iranian airline Mahan Air’s purchase of United States government planes during the Obama administration from 2011 to 2013 (when Iran sanctions were in place). He handled the Iranian relations from start to finish. Just like his father did for Reagan and just like he’s been doing for years under cloak and dagger says the BLP insider.
Peter Strzok Sr. and of course John O. Brennan were involved with Iran. In fact, our source tells us that Strzok Sr. was involved in the Iran-Contra scheme that led to a six-month prison term for Reagan national security adviser John Poindexter. Back in the Eighties the government was just as corrupt as it is today and for some reason we keep giving weapons, planes, and planes full of money to Iran. Even Barack Hussein Obama sent money to Iran on a plane in his last year of office — $1.4 Billion worth. Just a few weeks ago, Iran demanded Germany send them 300,000 Euros in cash on a plane to them, and of course Angela Merkel complied. What’s the deal with Iran? Why are they so important?
Here is a clipping from the Wisconsin-based Leader-Telegram newspaper from 1979 in which Strzok Sr. describes his activities in Iran and expresses good will for the Ayatollah.
What were Strzok, Brennan, and Obama really doing? That is a very good question that maybe President Trump can get answered for us if a Summit with Iran can happen early this fall. One thing that is constant in modern history over the last five decades with anything involving Iran: There is a Peter Paul Strzok involved.
The BLP insider who’s worked with both Breannan and Strzok tells us that Strzok was never FBI he was part of the highest level of covert operatives, sliding into posts within the CIA or FBI to infiltrate, influence and observe. This is exactly what we saw with the Special Counsel appointment that resulted after a failed operation.
Peter Strzok Jr. was placed in the FBI to ensure a win for Hillary Clinton and buffer negative press (like the Weiner laptop case, which he covered up). That’s the real deal. Revealing Peter Strzok’s identity would have been a problem because it’s called unmasking but since he is in the limelight and out of the shadows it’s time to lay all the cards FACE up on the table for all to see who Peter Strzok really is.
Spooks feared him, but like our source they still maintain secrecy — simply connecting the dots of publicly and privately available information.
