Freedom of speech absolutely and inherently gives a person the right to insult others. What you find offensive, others may not. Someone will always be offended by the words of another whether it be justified or simple hypersensitivity. It is not a right to not have your feelings hurt.
If offence being taken is the key to all this, then let me say that I am offended by someone, somewhere, deciding for me what I should see and/or hear. (and I imagine that goes for most people on ATS)

Well then why saying anything against Jews/ Holocaust and Israel is censored and even questioning Holocaust is criminal offense? Where is the freedom of speech here?

There was no respect. They went out of their way to slap him around.
Does there need to be? It's their show and the absolutely stupid & ridiculous reasons he left the show DESERVED to be mocked and ridiculed.

Dont know if anyone already added this but it is officla Comedy central buckled.
I watch the epsiodes on southparkstudios, as I am not in the US.
normally the new episodes are available to view for a few days directly after the premier.
Now there is this message
" We apologize, south park studios cannot stream episode 201 at this time. After we delivered the show and prior to broadcast, Comedy Central placed numerous additional audio bleeps throughout the episode. We do not have network approval to stream our original version of the Show. We will bring you A version of 201 as soon as we can"
Ladies and gentlemen. the "war on terror" is lost. The heart of American culture has been infected with fear. The 1st amendment is dead and only applies to special interest groups.
best start facing south east you lot! it the beginning of the end!!!

So if a bunch of people actually end up participating in the "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" coming up, do you guys think it will make matters worse, or help Matt and Trey?
Problem is, Revolution Muslim was started and run by a “converted” Israeli settler who studied at an orthodox rabbinical school in Israel before becoming a settler in the occupied territories. You don’t think a orthadox Israeli settler would have any desire to see progressive Americans start to hate “radical Muslims” do you? You think “Revolution Muslim” helps or hurts the Israeli PR campaign after Operation Cast Lead and the Goldstone Report? Here’s the research your team should have done before you went out and spun-up the neoconish ”radicalized Muslim” hype for your progressive audience… “Revolution Muslim” is always there to say just the wrong thing to make Americans hate “Radical Muslims”. They praised the killing of Daniel Pearl with a childish puppet show. They sent “Get Well” wishes to the guy who shot those 13 people at Fort Hood.
