Funny thing is, no one actually knows what mohamed looks like. You could have put a carrot on screen and called it mohamed.

In the end, it really doesn’t matter a whole lot if CC caved, if SP meant to do this as a spoof showing just how nuts this issue is, the show aired, people are talking about it, and nothing will happen. Tomorrow the hate between religions will still be there, politicians will continue to bash everything the other side says, and life will go on. Nothing will be learned, no side of any issue will see good in anything that they didn’t come up with first. The rigidity and separations that continue to divide us all will continue. Be it beliefs, money, pride, power, whatever, we will continue to divide and hate, that’s just how it is.

It is nice to see that SP did take on this issue. In a world where everyone is mad and name calling in the name of whatever their issue or group is, SP goes after everyone, hard and equally. I do applaud them for that. It is nice to have one last bastion where I can simply see all sides being made fun of, even the issues and groups that I personally agree with.

No ants, animals or other humans besides the protester himself were harmed I believe. The monks in Tibet go as far as removing ants on construction sites so they don't get killed. They are the least violent religion by far.



I'm obviously well aware of that, My post was tongue in cheek.

But to say that Buddhists are only peace loving people with no balls, not saying you said that but some have that misconception, is clearly inaccurate.

I agree with you young man

Honestly, I havent watched SP in years, but these are the same people who brought us the movie "Orgasmo!" (Anyone up for a little "DVDA"?)


If you've seen the film you'll know what DVDA means....

I think the creators are far too crude and disrespectful to give a flying F about the radical Islamic threat. If anything, it was probably a compromise between them and Comedy Central

Just to point out a funny development (sorry if it's already been pointed out) the www.revolutionislam.com seems to have been hacked


For the time being at least it shows that image of Muhammed with a bomb in his turban.

No one home at that site...

That alternate site Revolution.I.SLAM is a great replacement. I used to have a link to a website displaying the activities in muslim countries (in my sig) ... how they worship ... but I guess that was just controversial for ATS LOL... Truth, hahah, as long as it's not too offensive.
BTW The picture on the site above is directly from the other site I used to link to in my sig.

Edit to add: We all need to take time to educate ourselves and understand Islam ... It's worth the time ... However, photographs of their religion usually come with warnings.

By censoring the episode, South Park succeeded far more greatly than had they played the normal episode uncensored.

Well done, whether they planned the censorship or not. The message received global coverage.

in my opinion southpark should be put off the airwaves and be made in to a 3 year university study course, its just a trashy sitcom which rides the waves of foul language with little or non of own ingenuity as far as story telling goes.



Its funny but I love satirical TV shows in general, societies who don't self analysis and flay every aspect of their culture every now and then are doomed, America has a real problem with doing satire right however, but South Park in my mind is one that actually does it correctly and in an American way that isnt unwatchable.

Thing is to me, are they really insulting or putting forward a very frank comment. Such comments need to be made, most normal people can tell when a frank observation or comment about something is plainly wrong. But often those the comment is directed at, take insult because it reveals something they dont want to address about themselves. Insult at a justified observation is a good indicator of to much pride.

Sure such comments can hurt, but some comments need to be made, often in a way that makes people take note.

South Park does it well, its like a slap in the face with a cold fish... be thankful some ones doing it. Pitty they caved in this time


Good thing about South Park is they target EVERYONE, they are the court jester of old, only with a loud "F'U" rather than a funny hat and jokes about the king being fat

Regardless of where a threat is coming from, it's always a good policy to ignore it, and go ahead with whatever planned action that caused it in the first place, anyway.

It's like with terrorism. We don't negotiate with terrorists for a reason. We don't want to encourage them.


That, and if somebody threatens me, I enjoy pissing them off.

I completely disagree. It reflects back to us the society we live in, in a way that puts us in a positive mood and at the same time makes us think. A show like family guy should be put off the air, its a show that only those who watch a lot of television can understand (With a few exceptions of course).

The guy who killed Theo van Gogh was no more of a fundie than those sicko Christians who murder abortion clinic workers. Just saying.. sicko fundies are not exclusive to Islam.

Just another notch on the bed for fanatical muslims screwing over the general populace expecting them to pander to their terrorist whims.

I'm suprised other religions haven't decided to start using terror threats to get their way as it seems to work awfully well for Islam.

It seems as a whole society has lost its backbone and would rather break under a threat of violence instead of standing up for what it believes which is deeply saddening

Hate the individuals that make the threats and do the deeds not the billion+ other Muslims that just want to get on with their lives.

I'm pretty sure most abortion clinics in the USA receive terror threats from fundamental Christian groups more or less daily.

Also the first suicide bombers in recorded history were Christians.

Bible even promotes suicide as mean of killing enemies:

"And Samson said, 'Let me die with the Philistines!' And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life." Book of Judges 16:30, Old Testament.

It wasn't a setup, news sources have been provided and it was the decision of Comedy Central to edit and censor both the visuals and audio references to Mohammed.


Not Trey and Matt

Here is a link to Trey and Matt's response via www.southparkstudios.com...

And in case you don't want to click the link

Posted on: 04.22.10 A Statement from Matt and Trey In the 14 years we've been doing South Park we have never done a show that we couldn't stand behind. We delivered our version of the show to Comedy Central and they made a determination to alter the episode. It wasn't some meta-joke on our part. Comedy Central added the bleeps. In fact, Kyle's customary final speech was about intimidation and fear. It didn't mention Muhammad at all but it got bleeped too. We'll be back next week with a whole new show about something completely different and we'll see what happens to it.


The ending didn't even contain anything about or saying of Muhammed, it was about fear and intimidation. Well, I guess the point was proven far better than they had planned on.

I wish their was a way for them to leak the full episode on line.

If the South Park creators were actually killed by Muslims, I think that would be the straw that breaks the camel's back in regards to how the rest of the world feels about Islam. The Muslim people would have a very difficult time in the aftermath of such an event, which would only escalate the extemist response, further turning the rest of the world against them.
