Cartman arms himself, preparing to hunt down “the ticking time bomb that is Token.”

This isn’t the first time the show has tackled difficult issues. In an earlier episode, South Park dealt with the NSA spy programs, where Eric Cartman fights back against the National Security Agency’s invasive spyware, Mediaite reported.

In the “World War Zimmerman” episode, Cartman opens up his “emergency kit” and pulls out his gun. He runs through the neighborhood telling people to clear the streets. Later, he tracks down “the ticking time bomb that is Token.”
