Added DiffLines:

* FanonDiscontinuity: Many pretend that this episode does not exist, since the wacky nature of this episode would feel detrimental to the show.


* {{Anvilicious}}: Let's just say this episode really goes after post-9/11 patriotism '''''hard'''''. As in, "people getting thrown in [[TheAlcatraz Alcatraz]] for ThoughtCrime" hard.

* ValuesDissonance: This episode is more looked down upon now than it was back then now that Bush has left office and America has grown out of the over-patriotic attitudes of the early 2000s. Of course, back then it wasn't exactly liked by some because of how heavy-handed it was in the political department.
* ValuesResonance: Though some argue that this episode is now more relevant then ever with the increasing scrutiny of people's actions (doubly so if they are doing an attempt at peaceful protesting) and arguing whether or not these actions should be considered anti-patriotic (and if so, whether or not this deserves them getting the book thrown at them).

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: [[Series/SesameStreet Elmo]] depicted as being a political prisoner, who later hangs himself in his cell. In 2012, Kevin Clash, the puppeteer and voice of Elmo, left ''Sesame Street'' amid allegations of molesting underage boys. He didn't get convicted, but it definitely changes the context of the line "Elmo went to wrong fundraiser."
