'South Park' gets modified by Comedy Central

"South Park" often gets bleeped. But not usually like this.

On Wednesday, the conclusion of the two-part story involving the Prophet Mohammed was shown with a number of audio spots covered by bleeps and images hidden by a block reading "CENSORED." Though "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have had fun with censorship in the past - including in part one of the Mohammed story, which involved free speech issues - apparently this time much of the censorship came from Comedy Central itself.

"Comedy Central was responsible for the bleeps and not showing Mohammed in last night’s episode," a spokesperson for the network told CNN.

The first part of the episode, which aired April 14, attracted protest from an Islamic group, Revolution Muslim. The group posted an entry on its website that included a warning to Parker and Stone that they risked violent retribution after the episode included a satirical discussion about whether an image of the prophet could be shown.

Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post, told CNN it was meant to show those offended by the depiction of Mohammed how they can voice their opposition, and wasn't a call to violence.

Mohammed was believed to have been portrayed disguised in a bear suit in a portion of the episode, though last night's episode revealed otherwise.

On Stone and Parker's website, SouthParkStudios.com, a message acknowledged that Comedy Central had added some bleeps and that they couldn't stream their cut of part two:

"After we delivered the show, and prior to broadcast, Comedy Central placed numerous additional audio bleeps throughout the episode," said a message on the site. "We do not have network approval to stream our original version of the show."

    People die for freedom. It's happening today, it will tomorrow, and it will continue to happen as long as people wish for freedom. This is more true in America then it is anywhere else in the world. And I didn't grow in a country where millions of my fore fathers died for that freedom just to be scared out of expressing myself because of the mortal threat of death.

    I hope Comedy Central will find it in there American hearts to see this truth and play all there shows uncensored, including swearing which I also feel shouldn't be censored, as per are given rights as Americans. I want to push my fellow Republicans and Tea Party members to take up this stand against freedom of speech, for Islam is becoming more of a threat to are believes then any one person in are own government.

    And if the Islamic radicals are stupid enough to kill American citizens on American soil, I hope my government will protect its people. Even if it means another war of freedom, with a response similar to that of Pearl Harbor if necessary. And that my fellow Americans, is something we all should be willing to fight for.

      i totally agree with you on this, im a moderate person so im half and half on the gov side, but we should fight for our freedom of speech, right now they mock our country everyday! on their news cast, so why cant we even do the same? is that even fair? not only that we mock our own religious beliefs like Jesus and god in south park, and everyone in the country loves it! Muslims can be rude and cry all they want about it, who are they to tell us we cant do something for our own content humor? They are quite hypocritical about this topic wouldn't you agree?

    So violent threats work? Just cause a bunch of people (who really shouldn't be watching this in the first place) complain about how they are portrayed in a fictional and humorous cartoon suddenly everyone else has to suffer? What the HECK happened to freedom of speech!? This makes me more angry then I can express! Yes I'm sure this episode (especially whatever was bleeped out in it) is offensive to Muslims. But to push your religious views off on us is just as bad as if we forced Muslims to watch this episode in its entirety. Thank you Comedy Central for showing us that you would rather give in to TERRORISTS then part with a little money due to bad publicity.

    So Matt and Trey didn't add the censor bars? Comedy Central actually added the joke towards the end, where Tom Cruise acquired a censor bar to emulate Muhammad's? That was funny. But the high-pitched bleeps were stupid, and I had to mute my speakers when the lessons of the story was given.

    Everyone knows that South Park already showed Mohammed, right? A few years ago he was shown with the Super Best Friends. But suddenly now it's bad? I'm an 19 year old girl from Canada and I can see why so many people from the land of the free that boasts it's right to free speech whenever possible are mad about this.

    I think that for Comedy Central to do this, and without the consent or a word to Trey and Matt, is a little ridiculous. And for a group based in America with 20 or so people running a website to dictate what's okay and not okay to parody to be the ones to make them do it? Even more ridiculous.

    And the fact that they bleeped out Kyle's "I learned something" speech is stupid. It, apparently, didn't even mention Mohammed but was about not giving in to fear or intimidation. I guess CC just felt too hypocritical allowing that part to air while bleeping out a non-offensive name, and rightly so.

    South Park is a funny and smart show, and 201 was a fantastic episode, made bad only by the weakness and stupidity shown by the powers that be at Comedy Central.

    I wish Trey and Matt the best of luck with their incredibly smart and well written show, and I hope they come back with better and better shows. They are innovators in the animated world for pushing the envelope as far as they do, but they are nothing if not equal opportunity jokesters.

    The extremists have not won anything and like 9/11 this, too, will blow up in their faces. Threatening to kill Matt and Trey is the stupid perspective of just a few.

    The Muslim extremists are hijacking their own religion to the detriment of all followers of Islam. I doubt 99.999% of Muslims could care less about how their prophet is depicted in a cartoon.

    Maybe CC's "censorship" is just part of the joke on Muslim extremists.

    It is sad that we must sacrifice freedom of speech in response to threats from a group that is so intolerant of others that death is the verdict for unbelievers.

    Hello. I would like to share my (Islamic-I Am a practising Muslim) view point about the issue of south park illustrating the prophet in a video.

    I have recently seen the video of south park depicting the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in a bear outfit, and having “mystical fire powers” I have also seen the “Muslims” responses and death threats towards the makers of south park.

    I am ashamed of these so called Muslim making death threats to the producers; I am ashamed that they call it “lawful (halal)” To kill innocents, I am most fully ashamed when I heard Yunis Mohammad stating “we are commanded to terrorise” other people.

    These people belong to the minority of groups, the radicals.

    I personally find the episodes of south park quiet humorous.
    I may not like our Prophet depicted in a bear suit, and having mystical powers of flame, but there’s a simple solution to that. Turn off your T.V
    God tells us in the Quran when hearing or seeing anything offensive; "And when they (Muslims) hear vain talk, they turn away there from and say: 'To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.'" [Quran 28: 55]
    He also states "Have patience with what they say, and leave them with nobility (dignity)." [Quran 73:10]

    We are ordered to leave them with noble dignity; we are instructed not to listen to those who make fun of us or our religion. God does not tell us to terrorise, kill, murder, or any such obscene things.

    Moreover, these so called “Muslims” defending the Prophet are total hypocrites, they claim to defend Islam, and the Prophet, but where are they when people make fun of Prophet Jesus or Jacob or Joseph, (etc)?

    Therefore, these radical Muslims should not have reacted the way they did they must learn how to create a respectable presence for themselves in the West first before asking the West to be considerate to their feelings. They ought to understand the lesson that something is far more deeply rooted in the Western tradition than free speech and that is: double standard.

    (any comments to me can be sent to my email, shadyyassine91@Live.com.au)

    Muslim fundamentalist rage and threats of violence at the implication that Comedy Central is perhaps portraying the "prophet" Mohammad in a cartoon is beyond insane – but the the aftermath of the Danish cartoons and elsewhere shows it cannot be taken lightly. These radical nuts must be prosecuted.
    And if they threaten violence for that, imagine what they would do if you outright portrayed those fundamentalists as the murdering terrorists that they are or support!

    ". Why should you press "freedom" "equality" "democracy" to the point of ignoring the basic beliefs of Islam? "

    Umm.. maybe because I'm NOT ignorant of Islam, and you act like ignoring the basic beliefs of Islam is a crime... oh wait, according to you, it is. Understand this: everyone doesn't believe the same things you do. It happens. It's only a crime in Islam to not believe in Islam. Heaven forbid anybody not agree with you. How arrogant and ignorant for you to think your way is the best way for all, and all should follow it.

    Poster Muslim,

    You ask "does it states [sic] that you have any right to hurt anyone by your words? " in relation to the free speech amendment. The obvious answer to this is "no, it does not explicitly state this," but it does offer the freedom to do so should one please. If that's not the definition of tolerance, I don't know what is. Because let's be honest, if we just let some people/groups of people do whatever they like without delivering occasionally hurtful words to check their actions, then we don't live in a democracy at all. Here's my question to you: "Does the Koran state that you have any right to kill, not just hurt, but kill anyone who goes against the teachings of Allah or Mohammad?" It's a simple question. Since when are hurt feelings equal to a life. Not exactly an eye for an eye, is it?

    Sophos, how about you formulate a post with some logical, argumentative substance, not just the same old brand of indoctrination.

    So let me get this straight... if you ridicule Mohommed or his religion, they threaten to kill you/actually kill you/ raise enough ruckus to shut you up?

    Fair is fair. What if other religions (or agnostics or atheists) threaten to retaliate violently against any Muslim who ridicules their religion or lack thereof? (and don't come back with 'they already do. No they don't... not to the level I'm talking about, so move along with that garbage).

    Somehow I don't think that'd be 'allowed'. And it's wrong. If it's good for one, it's good for all. No free passes.

    So let me see if i have this straight, Groups out there can ban Christian and Jewish beliefs. Images of Jesus and Khali at the beach and partying is ok. But anything that has Mohammad in it is taboo????
    Since when is the islamic belief system more important than our own? Mohammad is and was just a prophet just like Isaiah, John the Baptist and so many others. Who cares!!!!!!! The extremist muslims need to get a life, get a clue and shut the hell up before i stuff thier mouths with thier turbins. Religion is a personal belief in whatever god you wish to have. It is not how a country, nation or people are defined. It was we would all be screwed. And just for record, Osama Bin Laden is no prophet. he is a nut job the deserves to have his head cut off along with all other extremeists. I am so sick of the nation of islam being pushed in my face and me having to accept what they have to say. Guess what???? no i do not.........deal with it.

    South Park Rules for making a stand. When i get my hands on the cut version it will make it to the web for all to enjoy. Even those with sherpas, turbons and names like bin laden, Bin boa, Bin Boo-boo and bin Baa-Baa.

    What does scientology and islam have in common. No sense of humor which is very very sad, The irony was the slap at both religions because they take themselves so seriously,

    If you study the first three commandments we are told not to have any pictures depicting God or really any thing else. Picture that.. Oh we are not suppose to.

    Personally I love the arts and think it is one of the great joys we return to our creator and lets be honest we do not know what Buddha, Mohamed or Christ really looked like so what is the big deal. If we weren't meant to appreciate beauty then why the color vision and appreciation for symmetry?

    Dear All,

    I have read most of your comments, let me speak my mind. I am a muslim from Pakistan, but being a muslim doenst stop me for respecting all religons. My question is why do we need to make fun of religon (be it Jewish, Christian, Hindu or anyother) for entertainment?

    Alot of ppl talk abut 1st Amendment, but kinldy explain me this, does it states that you have any right to hurt anyone by your words? There are alot of ppl who denying Holucast, for one I do not & its not because I have I seen it or somthing but because saying otherwise would hurt a alot of ppl around the world who have one way or the other suffered becasue of it.

    Again i would like to repeat my question, Is it necessary to hurt ppl's emotions, feeling & beliefs for the sake of fun??????

    I enjoy watchin South park, whenever i can, but my question to them is, why bring religion & religous figures into this? There is a lot of other situations happening around us to make fun off.

    I say, make no fund of Jesus, God, Mohammad (Peace be upon him), Moses, David or any religious figures to avoid hurting feeling of ppl & for what show ratings????????

Matt and Trey were willing to walk point on this one but Comedy Central ran away like frightened children. You should be ashamed of yourselves for appeasing terrorists!!

    I support Matt & Trey 400%.

    I also understand Comedy Central's standpoint.

    For all of you who accused Comedy Central of some sort of weakness, answer me this: Would you be willing to put your life (along with the lives of your family and coworkers) on the line in the name of Free Speech? Would you be willing to turn your home and/or business into front lines in the War on Terror? Because that is exactly what you are blasting them for NOT doing. Matt & Trey KNOW this. That is why they have not slammed Comedy Central, but have simply voiced their disagreement and disappointment PROFESSIONALLY.

    If you expect Comedy Central to do it, you had better be willing to stand right next to them, as I will.

    I live in a country with majority Muslims...and you have NO idea the kind of idiocy comments or thoughts they come up with to rationalize their Stone-age ideas. Monogamy to them is a joke, polygamy is just a way to satisfy their lust. They have NO tolerance to other religion, and near zero respect for their women. They bow to their "God" 5 times a day but turn around to gamble, corruption and commit incest with their own kind.

    To them all infidels should die. What kind of religion is that? All goes back to Ishmael and the sense of insecurity and violence embedded to his generation that led to the Muslims extremists we see today.

    Sad to see that these extremists have won another battle today. Shame on you Comedy Central. If you have the guts to make the episode in the first place, have the guts to air it as it is.

    It might not be so much that Comedy Central was worried about violent retribution, it probably had more to do with money. Even if Comedy Central showed some spine and aired the original cut, sponsors might have pulled out, and that would hurt profits. Maybe PBS or one of about 2 other stations that aren't beholden to corporate interests could air the original.

    Now correct me if I am wrong, because I was not able to personally confirm this with a lazy google search, but to those saying that Trey and Matt should simply pack up and move their show to another network I think that Comedy Central probably owns the rights to the South Park franchise. I mean that's the way it usually is with big companies nowadays. They have all the capital and advertising muscle. If you go through them, which is pretty much a requirement if you want anyone to know that you exist, they will pretty much require you to sign over the rights to your IP to them. So if Trey and Matt left comedy central to make a new show, they probably could not call it South Park.

    This controversy has stirred some interesting musings over the whole concept of "freedom of speech" in me. I realize the first amendment only really applies to the legislative branch, not the executive or judicial, and certainly not private companies or corporations. But in this day and age where the vast majority of the population of the United States works under the umbrella of some sort of corporation or private company and depend on them to put a roof over your head and food on the table, where you can get fired for saying something on a forum or your facebook, how much "freedom of speech" is there, really?

    Whenever you try appeasing extremists, you allow them to grow in strength by making them and their sympathizers think they're right. First, they'll start with South Park, and then move on to bigger things and become more threatening. If you take a stand right at the beginning, you can show you won't let yourself be controlled by threats.

    I'm from Canada, and although our freedom of speech laws are slightly stricter than in the USA, what Comedy Central did is still cowardly and unnecessary. However, I wouldn't be surprised if our TV channels showing South Park would do the same thing.

    The blanket assumptions and overall hatred of Islam seen in these comments is honestly astounding.

    Please realize that as there are radical and violent groups that claim affiliations with Islam, the same thing happens in Christianity. Pick up a Qur'an. Learn for yourselves. Form your own opinions. It is not some book preaching hatred of all Western ideals and customs like so many Americans ignorantly presume. The American media is just using this story as another opportunity to add to the "bad guy" image of Muslims that has been growing most pointedly since September 11th, but even before then if you're willing to trace it back. Regardless, I do not necessarily agree with the actions taken by Comedy Central.

    I love Comedy Central but enough is enough. This act is nothing short of a shameless and cowardly capitulation to a radical anti government, anti American fringe group. If the Comedy Central executives want to go and cry in a corner every time some blogger with guns make a threat, then I’m going to be just as inclined to go watch a different network while they do. As a rule "If you’re unwilling to mock a single group you have no right to mock ANY group" and as such Comedy Central has lost me as a consumer of their media. I will boycott Comedy Central until this episode is aired in its entirety and I encourage others to do the same.

    The ridiculous anti-Muslim xenophobia aside, My country does have a right to take an anti-censorship stance in the face of a posted "warning". How would the people of Sidney, Perth or Melbourne react to this type of media allowed suppression? You don't know and therefore your diatribe lacks rationale, Steve.

  138. An Actual Muslim

    I am a Muslim. I am a true Muslim. I believe in Allah. I worship Allah sincerely. I occasionally watch South Park, and yes – I do enjoy it. And I am really, really, really ashamed of what is happening, here. The fact that some people who call themselves "Muslims" are making death threats over a satire episode is ridiculous, criminal, and evil. It is also un-Islamic. People in both Mecca and Medina used to make fun of the Prophet Mohamed all the time during his life. They called him a liar, an occultist, and a magician. What did Allah order him to do in return? Simple: Allah ordered Mohamed to keep preaching, in hope that one day these people's souls may see the light of Islam. What does the Quran tell Muslims to do when others make fun of Islam? It tells Muslims to WALK AWAY – JUST WALK AWAY. These people using Islam as an excuse to incite murder ARE NOT MUSLIMS. THEY DO NOT REPRESENT MY FAITH OR MY LORD. Please, please, please, arrest them and take them to court, in front of a jury, so they'll get the jail time they deserve and think about the sin they've committed. No one should make death threats like this, in the name of God or in the name of anything else.

    I am sorry. On behalf of all true Muslims in the world, I am really sorry. We should not have allowed these blood-thirsty devils to speak in our name and in the name of our faith for so long. I bid everyone on this post the Islamic farewell:

    As-Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh

    As usual, when it comes to Islam, CNN (mainstream media for that matter) takes a pathetic fringe group and amplifies their perverse message, as if it speaks for Islam and all Muslims. Islam is the 2nd largest religion in this country, is made up of individuals with different beliefs, cultures, practices, and politics: there is no such thing as one monolithic Islam, as there is no one monolithic Christianity. The average American Muslim is rarely given a voice in the mainstream media. The comparison of this story is like taking the KKK or the White Aryan Resistance's viewpoints as an American viewpoint. This group is not representative of Islam by any means. CNN did not bother to have any mainstream Muslim group comment on this story.
    I thought the piece was funny, but not the best work Matt and Trey have done, and not offensive to me or any of the Muslims I know. There are Islamaphobes out there that would do this to denigrate or offend Islam or the prophet, but this is not that case. A response that espouses violence even if it was Islamophobic comes from among the uneducated and misguided,

    You say that "such 'humor' is childish and unnecessary." Have you ever watched South Park? That's what it's all about! It's political, religious, and social commentary in the most childish way possible! If you don't like it, don't watch.

    American State of Mind,

    If you don't want to depict Muhammad, then don't. But who are you (or anyone else) to dictate to others that they can't? It doesn't directly physically harm anyone or anything, so what's the big deal? I wouldn't get upset if they depicted Jesus doing something completely insane and inappropriate. I would take it as typical South Park style, laugh, and move on with my life. People need to get their panties out of a bunch and stop taking everything so damn seriously. If you seriously allow a show like South Park to influence you, then you (and I am using the general "you," not talking about anyone in particular) are WAY too sensitive and the world will rip you to shreds.

    You may want to edit your reports on this story about them last week "depicting Muhammed in a Bear costume", considering this latest episode actually revealed that they actually had Santa in the Bear costume. So... even the previous episode didn't show Muhammed in any way. And now this week's didn't show him either.

    Thus, this Islamic extremist group should realize that they got tricked. They got the old switch-a-roo, as it were. They got mad over them just saying there was Muhammed and took it on faith that they actually were. But they were not. They should recant the previous statement and note that Muhammed was not seen at all in either episode, thanks to what they may consider "tasteful censorship". I hope that they can admit their mistake and CNN will correct the misstatement in their articles on the subject.

    I'm curious to know why anyone would be interested in depicting the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him, when it's quite obvious that there is a deep rooted tradition in the Muslim community of not doing so, in fear that these images would become a form of idolatry similar to the pictures we have of Jesus Christ Peace Be Upon Him, into today's society.

    Also, someone should probably tell Revolution Muslim that the Prophet Muhammad was beaten, spat on, trashed thrown upon him, camel intestines placed upon him during prayer, and many other vile and unimaginable things, and yet still did not display the anger that this man that claims to follow the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him, has displayed.

    Way to bend the story to suit that good old American bigotry.

    There are violent Muslims although as numbers go, there are far more violent Christians and Jews, and one group of them has an entire country built on violence and terrorism. The group concerned here specifically stated they were not making a threat, just pointing out the very real danger, due to those radical Muslims who do exist.

    You might want to take a moment to rethink why they are radical though. Their religion makes the two older versions of the One God of Abraham, seem like primitive mumbo jumbo and the reason they are becoming radicalised is because of YOUR war on them. Millions of Muslims have died so far in your wars for oil and israel. You've destroyed the most secular state in the ME and turned it into a wasteland of displaced and dead and sick people. You're trying to do it to Afghanistan, yet here you sit cackling away about the violent Muslims.

    For shame USA, you're a grubby little dying empire, and soon the world will gladly wave farewell to you as you sink into the depths of the green bits of paper you've been foisting off onto an increasingly impatient world.

    Basically it being ok to offend Christians, but not Muslims. and why are people so afraid to offend Muslims.

    Because Muslims preach terror – it’s a *commandment* in their book straight from their profit so they are doing their job! But the Christian profit, Jesus Christ, preached peace and love your enemy – that's why its ok to offend Christians, cause Christ died for those sins.

    Ala and Muhammad? No. Kill. 911.

    Any “Christian” group in history that killed anyone in the past are not Christians. How can some leader call himself a Christian if he does not *do* what Christ preached?

    A lot of the people who are posting here aren't attacking Islam. They are attacking the decision to bend to the will of a small group of people because those people threatened violence. We call those people terrorists. No matter their religion, race, creed, etc., that is what they are.

    As a Christian, I observe Easter. Should I get offended and threaten violence against everyone who doesn't observe Easter? No. That would be stupid. I don't hold others to the rules of my religion because they are free to worship (or not worship) however they please. I am not a Muslim, therefore I feel NO need to adhere to the laws of their religion. Should I die or be injured because of that? No.

    We are NOT denying them the right to worship how they want. But we DO have a right to free speech without the threat of terror.

    Wow. This program desecrates everything imaginable and has been on for years, and offended many people and groups, and haven't changed their programming. They get a death threat and take out the offense. Hmmm . . . discouraging, but sends a message. It's sad that it takes a death threat (probably pretty realistic too) for them to make changes like this. Too bad respect for others hasn't worked before. It says a lot, both about the group that posed the threat, and about these programmers.

  205. What?

    I find it rather ignorant that those who supported the show of Mohammed just considered the group to be extremist. One of the main components of Islam is that there are no idols, no pictures. They don't have the stained glass windows depicting their prophet's journey. They don't worship some dead guy nailed to a t. The group that protested may be extremist, and they may want Trey and Matt dead now, but their problem with the episode, at its core, is completely reasonable.

    To complain that you were deprived of comedy simply because Comedy Central wouldn't commit (for all intents and purposes) sacrilege against another religion is just immature. To comment that Islam is being too picky or sensitive is just plain stupid. Go read Wikipedia or something, you mindless, narrow-minded, pigheaded people.

    It's not extremism. It's how their religion works, dummies.

    By the way, freedom of religion is covered by the First Amendment as well. So those who think this group is full of "Islamist extremists" can take their free speech and shove it. The First Amendment has its boundaries.

    Over the years South Park has made fun of Jesus,Scientology,etc. But the moment they make fun of Muslims, they are censored? What makes them any less of a target for humor than Christians? The only reason this episode was censored but none depicting Jesus have been, is because Muslims are violent and and murder anyone that puts their religion or god in a bad light. We need to quit catering to them.

    @ Ron in Palm Springs, you posted, "So it's ok to offend Christians, but not Muslims? Why are people so afraid to offend Muslims?"

    Because Muslims preach terror – it’s a *commandment* in their book straight from their profit so they are doing their job! But the Christian profit, Jesus Christ, preached peace and love your enemy – that's why its ok to offend Christians, cause Christ died for those sins.

    Ala and Muhammad? No. Kill. 911.

    Any “Christian” group in history that killed anyone in the past are not Christians. How can you call yourself a Christian if you don’t do what Christ preached????

    However, the Muslim faith does teach terror and kill thy neighbor, so if you are calling yourself a Muslim and you are not performing some level of terror to others – especially non-believers – then you really should not call yourself a Muslim.

    @barry beestrow

    1) The primary "threats" made against Iran have been of economic sanctions. Cite me 3 credible sources where the US has made threats of violence against Iran in the past 5 years. When did the US threaten military action against Iran?

    2) I stated that other groups complained about episodes that were centered on their beliefs and offended them. This wasn't the first episode SP has done that offended, and it won't be the last.

    Did Muslims complain about the Catholic episode? Maybe. Did Scientologist complain about the Morman episode? Possibly. But the main groups complaining about the Catholic episodes were Catholics; hence, the media covered the Catholic reaction. The primary people complaining about the Scientology episode were Scientologist; thus, the media centered on the Scientologist response to the episode. And since last night's episode most offended Muslims, who's reaction do you think the media would center on...?

    3) Releasing someone's personal information is one thing. Publicly stating that they will end up murdered while releasing their personal information is another. They already stated that they had their personal information. If the true purpose was to convey to Matt and Trey that their actions were endangering them, why not send a message directly to them instead of posting it on a website they may never see?

    Looks like the USA is now controlled by the muslim extremist. All they have to do is threaten now and Americans respond by doing as they are told. Meanwhile the Muslims will continnue their regiem of murder and mayhem aganist any non muslims, even without provacation. And they will continnue to desicrate images of Jesus and God as they please.

    To the person by the name of 'Richard' that wrote: "south park is a symptom of the sickness of our society ... people who like south park probably stop to admire the beauty of cancer as it consumes an otherwise healthy organ. what are we doing to our children? This isn't a question of first amendment rights. This is sick and evil. The purveyers of this vileness will eventually answer to God, as will anyone who tolerates such garbage."

    South Park actually portrays how stupid people behave when society goes to extremes. It is not a 'symptom', it is more like an exagerrated mirror.

    "This isn't a question of first amendment rights'. Yes, it is. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean free speech shouldn't be upheld.

    To Barry--there is obviously a lot to correct with our relationship with many Muslims in the Middle East, especially Iran (indicting a whole nation instead of it's governing body), yet, there is no way you are going to convince me that RevolutionMuslim was not cloaking their "warning" with intimidation and coercion towards violence. Explain to me why they would release a photograph of the murdered Theo Van Gogh..who, by the way, had been stabbed to death for releasing a film which defended Muslim women. Also, releasing the names and address of Comedy Central HQ does not define very well as a mere "warning". RevolutionMuslim sent the message of "first strike" mentality through their post. God help them (and let's be pragmatic-many innocent Muslims) if someone heeds their call.

    Here is an interesting quote:

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. ... God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion; what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms." - Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787

    Ok this was Thomas Jefferson. Who can argue with one of our founding fathers? We are the land of the free and the brave.

    It is sounding like the land of the wusses and fearful now.

    I think that America is a land where people have arms, and in many cases use them.

    I would never ever advocate violence.

    But if I were the muslim bloggers who gave this warning to our entertainers, then I would be wondering if my life was truly safe.

    I think we should all pray for the safety of all involved, but especially these tyrannical jerks. I don't think they are safe right now.

    This is not a threat. It is just a statement of the reality that they face. I don't threaten them.

    Maybe they should consider toning down their rhetoric, and asking for nonviolence, lest the violence get out of control and go both ways.

    Never Forget 9/11

    Dear Comedy Central,
    After watching last nights episode of South Park (#201), then reading that you, not Matt or Trey, censored certain parts of the show because of its religious connotations, I realized that you are a pathetic, gutless, sad, spiritless, weak, and boneless company! You are lacking in willpower, courage and strength of character! Thank you for letting the extreme religious fundamentalist/terrorist win without putting up a fight! You have never let people dictate your shows in the past no matter how controversial yet you bent over backwards for a group of Islamic extremist. In my eyes you decided to save your ass and subsist your spineless life on your knees rather than die on your feet in the name of freedom of expression. Your actions involved a total loss of dignity and pride. You appeared shamefully weak and ineffective. You are well deserving of condemnation. And because of this choice you will be shackled to the demands of other extremist and will never truly be free to express yourself again. Will I continue to watch your network? Yes, but with less respect. Am I disappointed? Yes, because you hid during a war you started. Will I forgive you? Yes, because you are weak and cowardly, I believe that the weak must be nursed. I hope you well on your journey, while on your knees chained to the demands of extremist. Good luck! Praise be to Mullah!

    There is a difference between a "threat" and a "warning." Generally speaking, when one issues a threat, you say "If you do ABC, then YXZ may end up happening to you." whereas when one issues a warning, you say "If you do ABC, then I will do XYZ to you." It's far less ambiguous.

    So the only religion we can't make fun of is Islam. How is that the country we live in, we have freedom of expression, speech, and the right to assemble unless it offends someones delicate sensibilities? Mohammed, Jesus, Buddha, and the rest if they had ever been real people never said,"hey don't make fun of me" probably because a sense of humor is universal, unless you practice certain religions where a sense of humor seems to get checked at the door.

    what many people here don't seem to have understood yet is: freedom of speech isn't actually the issue when you insult another human being.

    if you insult someone's family or wife you have exercised your freedom to do that; now the result may be one that you do not want; if it is done via mass media it may be open to a libel suit through the courts as well.

    because most religions don't take as much offense when they are insulted doesn't make muslims 'evil'-it only indicates their ardent love for their prophet and their religion just as a man in love w/ his wife will not countenance open public insults on her.

    one thing more: that the article never mentions other groups calling in or writing that they were offended by this episode doesn't mean that none were; it is likely that they did but because u.s. citizens have been taught to hate islam only the MUSLIM complaint was listed here...

    Just like in thier cartoon wars episode, the same point has been amde IRL. It isn't about not offending someone, but more about JUST not offending Muslims. If they cencor Mohammed why not cencor Jesus, Buddha, all of them? If one thing gets cencored, then all of it should be cencored. You cater to everyone or noone. Comedy Central has made a decision on what is ok to show and what isn't. Other religions having thier deities doing drugs is fine, Jesus being shown as a lame guy who did tricks not miracles is fine, but Whoa we better not mention anything about the Islamic faith. Good job on proving the very point south park was trying to make.

    The policy of the United States Government may be to not give in to terrorism, but apparently Comedy Central has a different policy.

    WAS this an act of terrorism? By most definitions, "terrorism" is the calculated threat of or use of violence to achieve a political, ideological, or religious goal.

    The "goal" was for there to be no depictions (or even references) to Mohammed on the episode.

    The "calculated threat of or use of violence" came in the form of Revolutionmuslim.com's comment that " they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show" and the posting of Comedy Central's addresses.

    So yes, in my opinion, this was a successful use to terrorism.

    By capitulating, not only has Comedy Central allowed the threat of violence to affect their decisions; they have opened the door to allow future threats of violence to control ALL of their other decisions.

    PALIN: Well, I’m giving you that perspective of how small our world is and how important it is that we work with our allies to keep good relation with all of these countries, especially Russia.

    That is the real exchange. The point was not that you can see Russia from Alaska (which is technically true,) the point was Palin acting like that gave her some kind of experience in international relations with Russia.

    It's time we stop the bullying. We can't give in to every demand out of fear. There's no harm in that humour. South Park makes fun of every religion. Why should there be special considerations? Because we are afraid? It's time we stand our ground.

    Kevin P, although true about the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition being examples about violence associated with Christianity, can you think of anything a few hundred years more recent, say at least after my great , great , great, great, etc grandfather was born ? There are way too many violent extremist in Islam going unchecked b/c this radical thinking is encouraged all too often by their religious and political leaders. Saudi Arabia for instance, rules its country with an Iron Fist. If it REALLY wanted to change its countries ideological thinking, it could. Its home to Mecca for crying out loud. They ride both sides of the fence, and our country tolerates it because they have oil. Enough of the bend over backwards for Muslim terrorist philosophy. Ask yourself this.

    How interesting. They bash on Mormons, Catholics, Jews, Christians, and even Jesus Christ and God Himself, and the only two religions who really get bent are the Muslims and the Scientologists. Go figure. Stinking crybabies. I am an active Mormon, and I thought the episode bashing Mormonism, speaking as a Mormon, was inaccurate and extremely oversimplified, but from a worldly view, seeing it as a satire and an art form, and given some very basic knowledge about The Church, it was pretty funny. You don't see me threatening anyone. What crap.

And to Methusela, what about the Muslims who are standing on the corner in NYC handing out pamphlets calling for 'actions on Americans'. THAT is protected speech.

    American satire and parody is meant to create awareness of whether our beliefs, values and customs are being perceived as we intend and whether there is any hypocrisy involved. However, it is true that the level of "sacrilegy" has grown over time as a means of capturing our increasingly wavering attention. Hence programs such as South Park. Are there limits to the irreverence? Of course. Most people know when it has been crossed. However, in my view, satirizing Muslims does not cross this line. The Muslim response should be similar to Christianity's approach. When attacked, its founder Jesus, urges us to pray for and forgive the "offenders". This actually strengthens the appeal of the religion.

    Spoken like someone who has never seen the episode in question or most south park episodes. Most episodes usually have a purpose and hardly belittle anyone's religoius beliefs (except maybe the mormon episode, but even that episode depicts mormons as good people).

    This episodes primary purpose was to point out that no religion should have a blanket of protection that is given to Islam. The fact that they have Buddha doing lines of coke next to a black box where mohammad should be doesn't necessarily belittle Buddhists (does anyone really think he does/did coke? REALLY?) but merely is done to have a direct contrast there in front of the viewer. Why is THIS OK but merely having Mohammad sitting there not OK?

    And the Revolution Muslim website is offline today. Of course if you look at what they posted in their "this isn't a threat" death threat, then maybe it's because law enforcement finally decided to step in:

    I mean these guys basically drew a map to the Comedy Central offices & South Park Studios and told their readers to get out there and murder the offenders: "Over still photographs of Parker, Stone, van Gogh and others, the Web site runs audio of a sermon by the radical U.S.-born preacher Anwar al-Awlaki ...

    South Park is intentionally tasteless & hurtful, although people have a right to watch crap if they want. For the life of me, I can't imagine why they'd want to though.....

    Obviously, any show that takes a person's deeply held religious beliefs, and turns them into a joke, should expect a backlash from many, as descent people have better morals than that. Unfortunately, right now it seems to be in vogue to demean and discriminate against innocent Moslems because of the horrendous deeds of a few.Well raised people are taught to have respect for others, and their personal beliefs, even when they don't happen to share them.

    Treating Moslems so shabby is no different than doing it to Baptists or Presbyterians, but they have more pull in our society, so people don't dare.

Free speech only extends so far, ie you can't yell fire in a crowded movie, and while trey and matt may have been willing to accept the consequences, others involved in the show may have been put in danger for something they did not wish to be a part of.

    You've gotta be kidding. What are you doing here? Shouldn't you be posting over at Fox News? I think they might be the only ones left who agree with the whole Obama / Muslim thing, and I'd imagine that even there you'd be hard pressed to find someone who really believes that. Spare us the excuses you make for your racism, please.

    For the most part, I see the anger in these comments is misdirected. Yes, it's absurd that people are allowed to threaten other people over a cartoon image based on who their imaginary friends are. But why do we blame Comedy Central? Do you not think they recieved death threats as well? They have the safety of their employees, their families, and themselves to think about. Some things are worth losing your life over, and that's why some people join the military. But for those who wish to entertain, what does it matter who is threatening your life and why? All that matters is that the people who are threatening you are serious. A cartoon, in my opinion, is not worth losing your life over. When you get down to the principles behind it (such as freedom of speech), then yes, the anger is understood... but still misdirected.

    We should be angry with those who made the threats, not with a company that provides entertainment. It's the fault of the Muslim extremists here, and I, for one, would love to see them charged and prosecuted.

    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.



    Pepsi is the exclusive sponsor of Comedy Central's A-List, that would be a good start. Here is a list of Pepsi owned companies:

So much for working so hard for so much and then selling out for money instead of sticking to your guns. On another note, it sure still looks like the "enemy" is winning. All they have to do is say we are going to bomb this or blow up this or kill this person and all hell breaks looose in America. People go in panic mode and fear everyone and everything.

    Why do you pretend to "respect" other people's religious beliefs? Isn't that the same as saying "I respect schizophrenics' views on the world "?

    Revolutionmuslim.com has proven one thing quite clearly: Muslims are barely animals that will attack anyone they perceive as breaking internal Islamic laws. They will kill you if you do something they think in any way paints Islam in a bad light. The fact that Muslims are saying "If you offend us, we are known to attack and murder you in your sleep" should be a clear warning that Islam is a threat.

    There are a number of Faiths who consider it sacrilegious to depict their Prophet. One of them is Judiasm.

    Although I respect Comedy Central's right to censor their programing, to cave in to pressure from the Muslim world and censor ourselves as a society would be even more tragic than if our own government had repealed the first amendment.

    “If there is a bedrock principle underlying the First Amendment, it is that the government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable.”—Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr., Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989)

    Therefore, saying that Matt and Trey "crossed the line" in being offensive to the Muslim community, is the same as saying that the Muslim world has "hijacked" our first amendment rights. Do not place your freedom in the hands of intolerant, fundamentalist psychotics.

    If we need to deal with potentially violent reprisals from psychopathic fundamentalists to protect our liberties, then so be it. Blood is shed to protect our liberties every day, each casualty a martyr to the cause of liberty. Tomorrow should be no different.

    While I can believe Comedy Central inserted the audio bleeps, I believe, based on the episode that I watched, that the censor bars were by design, since they were an integral part of sight joke involving Tom Cruise. No bars would have equaled no joke.

    Maybe that's just a nitpick, but it seems a few folks here regarded the black video bars as part of CC's censorship. Based on the sight gag I just mentioned, it seems more likely that SP intended that part of it.

    Oddly enough, I thought the audio bleeping was a hilarious, being so over-the-top: besides not showing Mohamed, we can't even say [BLEEP] 🙂

    would you rather south park run a episode on how muslims pray in mosques then go and blow themselves up or cut the heads of people.

    This comment was posted on CBC.CA/NEWS.

    We need to really reflect on what is going on.

    From first hand experience the people of Muslim Revolution, such as Younes, are a security threat to the safety and stability of not only the USA and Canada, but to non muslims globally.

    I truly believe that Younes is an agent provacateur, desiring the continuation of Jihadists movements to destabalize the NAmerican economy.

    The fact that they can act with impunity causes me tremendous concern.

    What were they doing at a storage unit last night around 7:00 pm? The way they were coughing and gagging, and chuckling, sounds as though they were smoking hashish or marijuana.

    This is a young radicals mentor? A pot smoking, loud mouth, he repeats himself incessantly, even contradicting himself, and insulting others when they say something that discredits his shallow knowledge of history.

    Beyond being an agent of dubious connections, I would suggest he his also suffering from BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) with elements of delusion, and paranoia. Non the less a threat to be taken seriously, and to be eliminated, including his true source of management.

    I am ashamed of our leaders tolerance of this type of violent, hate filled, troublemakers. These are not just loud mouths, they are enciting murder and hatred.

    What I find most interesting though, is that they are not all born muslim. The fact that one is a former Jew, supposedly converted to Islam, in my estimation labels him a Mossad agent.

    We let this trash act with impunity, and prosecute Ernst Zundel for being a Revisionist, and deny some historical evidence at his trial.

    I am just glad to know that the censorship was not Matt and Trey's idea. Here is their statement in regards to it: "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."

Because Muslims are the only ones out there murdering people for exercising the basic human right of free speech and expression. Score another victory for the "religion of peace".

    I personally believe in freedom of speech, and am a christian. However, I remember from my World HIstory class that the Qur'an prohibits visual representation of the prophet in order to discourage the worship of him, which was one of Muhammad's main goals. He wanted to be a messenger for God, not someone to be worshiped. He promoted tolerance, and the Bible promoted tolerance, so why don't we just get along. Even if you have no religion, you must admit that a more progressive society would be able to get more done, make a better world, ect. The number of Islamic Extremists are about the same as the number of KKK members. Just as the KKK is not a good representation of Christianity, they are not a good representation of Islam.

    muslims would not like it if they were targeted for being muslim so why are we targeted for not being muslim and yet its more normal? harsher punishment and swifter justice needs to be dealt in order for them to realize that in no way shape or form will we let this continue to happen.

    Abdal-Latif – the problem is that a large number of Muslims can't seem to do as you do - peacefully protest. Instead, they have to either give thinly veiled death threats or outright call for someone's death. It isn't our fault that Muslims are looking bad. Talk to your people. We haven't made them kill others or threaten others every time someone does something they find upsetting. You guys have a reputation that you earned. It might be the bad apples that earned it, but you've got to police your own. It's not society's responsibility to change their views when Muslims aren't changing.

    We all value our faith. (I am an evangelical Christian, not the Catholic kind, and yes, I do regularly watch SP). But as Americans, we almost equally value all of the other things that have traditionally made this country, the USA, great. Such as free enterprise, the free market, and freedom of speech, religion, and expression. Just the overall freedom to "be", ya know.

    A curse on anyone who dare tries to muzzle any of that by "declaring" intolerant threats and vain or mock indignacies. Shame on any quote-unquote "American Muslim" for doing just that. You are running counter to the whole American experience.

    I agree with a boycott of the Comedy Central network and the Viacom/MTV Network parent companies behind it all.

    Muslims are like this. They will demand the right to worship Islam freely in other countries like the USA and Europe but no other religions are allowed to be publicly expressed in their country. They can build hundreds of mosques in America but you are not allowed to build a Christian church in Saudi or if a Chrstian church is allowed like in other Muslim countries you cant put a cross in the steeple or bell tower. No bell ringing allowed like in Arizona. Its the law of their country that non-Muslims can be converted to Islam but Muslims can't be converted to other religions or you face a death penalty. Its like Mafia, once you are inside Islam no way to get out of the system except death. There is no word, "salvation" in quran except if you were able to convert an "infidel" to Islam or blew yourself up killing "infidels" then you are assured of paradise.

    To my fellow muslims: if you don't like their show, just don't watch it, in fact boycott Comedy Central, protest peacefully, but don't ask them to CENSOR it. I never asked for that, and I don't know any other muslim who expects self-censorship, except for those pseudo-muslim clowns like that "al-Amrikee" guy (it means "the American"...fake name).

    I used to like South Park, before they started all this religion-bashing stuff. It was always an intelligent show, before they got into "shock for the sake of shock." They believe in nothing, OK, fine. My family believes in God so we won't be watching that network.

Why don't you stop generalizing your argument to all Muslims and an episode of South Park, and try to actually comprehend what is f'n going on instead of trying to look cool and pretend like you are so much better of a person than the people on here.

    I dunno – seems like one of the biggest jokes was when Tom Cruise was "censored" and then "de-censored" – that gag wouldn't have worked without the censor boxes, and the additional audio bleeps go right in with that – my bet is that it was all pre-planned – seems like exactly the subtly, ironic middle finger those guys would do...

    Terrorists of the Muslim religion have censored a tv show. When Jesus was vilified, that was ok, but, we know that if we say anything against Muslims, we will be censored. Even the Army has stopped Rev. Graham from being at Prayer Day because they fear the terrorist Muslims. Obama did say this was not a Christian nation, he's right.

    "Super Best Friends Peter Gargoyle" is episode 68 of the Comedy Central series South Park, aired on July 4, 2001. This episode is rarely shown in reruns because it features Muhammad, a character Comedy Central wouldn’t let them depict in future episodes such as "Cartoon Wars" and "200". The "South Park Studios" website took down this episode from their Episode Player saying "We apologize that South Park Studios cannot stream this episode" on the 22nd of April, 2010.

I thought it was hilarious how the other celebrities in the episode tried to capture Mohammed (who had a giant censor bar over him) b/c they wanted to take his 'goo', in which he has the power of being impossible to be made fun of. Tom Cruise took the 'goo' and he too was able to have a censor bar over his character, for awhile anyway. HILARIOUS!

    I am no extremist or even muslim. But I can understand how any particular demographic (in this case Muslims) may not want something that is sacred or personal to them to be made a mockery for the sake of making someone laugh or even worse, profiteering. Comedy has been the modern day excuse for lot of taboo issues to be made public and accepted when not all things should be that way. Of course, in a way it has helped break down barriers as in the typical example of racism and so forth. But where do you draw the line. Just because you offend everyone doesn't make it any more justifiable. In a way, the writers are making a mockery of things that either they do not relate too or don't take seriously. But some things really should be off limits in the name of human decency and respect. But I guess that's the joke real isn't it. I mean really, let one of their children be molested by a priest or be mentally handicapped and see if they still wanna write jokes about it. Some of their content can cause pain as well as pleasure. And in this case, Muslims are standing up for something they believe should be off limits. I dont see anything wrong with that. That being said, I do not believe violence should ever be a solution. I've watched SouthPark plenty of times before. And I have been both offended and entertained. But in the broadview, shows like this do more harm than good at the expense of others. And that ain't right. We would be better off without them. But we already know that. Fart!!!

They should go back to wherever they're from so they can oppress their women, marry them off at age 10, and blow each other at will if they can't accept that freedom sometimes means you don't like everyone and everything around you.

    I am a proud American Muslim. Honestly, I think that South Park creators should be allowed to post whatever they want whether it be the Prophet Mohammad or anything else. As far as the "Radical Muslim Groups" are concerned, I believe that they show just how hypocritcal they are just by their threats in this case. South Park has made fun of God, Jesus, and now the Prophet Mohammad. Obviously, in Islam, the Prophet Mohammad has a high status, however, God has a much higher status in Islam and for "Radical Groups" to be making threats, especially death threats, after God has been made fun by many programs just shows how disorganized and how they don't even know the fundamentals of the religion that they are allegedly protecting.
    Furthermore, we give them power by censoring shows and making a big deal out of it. This is America, people are allowed to express themselves freely. Also, it was just a comedy, and South Park makes fun of everybody. In my opinion, if you don't like the show, change the station.
    One more thing, if those groups really wanted to express their anger or offense, they could have wrote letters, publicly criticised the show, and just boycotted it. Nobody forces you to watch the show.

    It is ridiculous that people have to take things so seriously. Everyone needs to learn to develop a thicker skin and not take things so hard. All of this uproar over a TV show? South Park is hilarious and their jokes don't pick on one group or religion in particular, everyone gets satired. Can't we all just relax and get along?

Our own government is afraid of them, thus the omission of the words "Islamic (and Muslim) extremists" from threat reporting. People in the US are either too blind, too naive, too scared, or just plain stupid....this is a war between Christians and Muslims. We may not view it as such, but they certainly do. Wake up, America! Your freedoms are being taken away by the followers of Islam and your own government which is led by a man who doesn't have the courage to protect his people.

    Muslim extremists bloviate just as much as any other religion's extremists. For example, "the elephant poop on Jesus" artwork that caused controversy in New York some years back, resulted in death threats, tons of illogical thinking, and hurt feelings.

    Free speech has no place in religion, as the basis of a true believer's faith is blind acceptance of what they "think" to be the "one truth" about their own, "one true religion."

    I think it would be funny for South Park to introduce a permanent new character thats a Ham & Bacon Sandwich (along the lines of "Towlie" or the "Turd Sandwich") named Muhammad, not THE Muhammad, but just one of many Muhammads, as it is the most common name worldwide.

    What's new? They are us. Islam is only a branch of Monotheism. Jews, Muslims, and Christians have, and do, kill (and threat) in the name of the Bible God. And "he" is an invention of ancient literature. The Arabs believe in the Jewish religion! Go figure. Hitler was a Catholic. An Atheist would never commit those crimes. Of course, an Atheist would never have bombed Dresden either-(the way the Christians did). Almost every major world super-power is run by a leader who believes in a religion (myth) that says the "world is flat." It was a good way to scare people and gain power for a long, long time, but really folks, how much longer should we let Allah, Adam, Eve, Moses and Abraham-meaning Monotheism-and the followers, run our little outpost here in space?

    I support the Muslim's belief that using Muhammad's image could make him seem like an idol, or that it takes away from the focus of the religion. It's a good concept that has been lost on many religions which have created pictures of their gods, and seem to worship them more than God itself.

    But, those extremist Muslims that take this idea so far as to expound terrorism to push this idea, are nothing more than ignorant fools that blasphemy the Muslim religion of peace and self reflection.

    The Muslim religion is under no threat; real or imagined, from South Park, the US Government, Israel, or anything else. The Muslim Religion is too big for such nonsense.

Oh my gosh and what about all the episodes with Jesus hosting his talk show??? I am offeneded that some radical group interfered with what I watch.

    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.

    Even Palin praised a witch hunter.

    Well at last you can't Blame Canada for this. Comedy central get a grip I agree with most comments, if the Muslums don't like it they don;t have to watch. Which begs to question that it's fine for them to watch South Park when they ridicule everyone and everything else.

    BR –
    Its pretty funny that no one seems to pick up on that. I mean its pretty straight forward if you just watched the show. I am just curious as to what Matt and Treys reasoning behind their approach was. Did Comedy Central instruct them to do this? Or was this just their way of pointing out how silly censorship is? Either way it was hilarious.

    Hate to break it to you guys, but there is no "uncensored" version. That was it, the way it was meant to be.

    This is absolutely ridiculous. Comedy Central bleeping and blocking out parts of this episode is equal to China blocking searches about Tibet on Google. By doing this CC has caved in to the demands of insane extremists. They should re-air this episode in its entirety to rectify this horrible denial of free speech.

    That a supreme deity could be insulted by a cartoon satire is a bit far-fetched. This is really about a group of religious fanatics who are incredibly insecure about their beliefs. In fact, they're so insecure that they get violent whenever anybody pokes any fun at their religion or their alleged prophet. This is like a form of insanity, where believers think they can control what is in everybody's mind by making threats of violence. In the process, they make their religious appear primitive and hateful. The bottom line is that these guys aren't interested in protecting the Prophet's honor. In fact, they're damaging it. They just want to hurt people and will use any excuse to do so.

    Mohammad was a pedophile. Its in their quran. He took a girl who was still playing a doll for his wife. I think she was 9 years old by then. Now who wants a pedophile to be the founder of their religion? Bad seeds will not give a good tree and good fruits.

    MB – they make fun of EVERYONE!!!

    Nice to know Comedy Central and their parent company values the sensitivity of muslims more than anyone else.

    Sad times for free speech.

    Looks like the terrorists did in fact win.

    why is it ok for them to poke fun at Christianity and Judaism and juts about every other religion but not Islam? I consider myself to be a follower of Christ (not a Christian) and i don't watch South Park often, maybe once a year. It just seems to me a bit of a double standard and giving in to one group

    Dawson1488, are you for real?

    A measley unimportant episode of SOUTH PARK (of all things!) doesn't get to be as crude as it wants to be and (gasp!) the terrorists have won?!?!

    Calm the hell down people. It's this kinda mass hysteria that networks like Fox News feed on...making us all look like idiots in the process. Act and THINK rationally.

    BOOO! Booo, Comedy Central.

    When the Terrorists start making us change our behavior, then they have won! Grow a spine, Comedy Central!

    You wouldn't censor them when they poke fun at Christians or Atheists (or Mel Gibson) so why the heck would you sendor them over THIS?

    You cowards have lost a viewer for life. I will never again watch your station.

    I am sick and tired of all the whining from Muslims about the making fun of Mohammed. This IS the USA. We are not a christian state. We are not a jewish state. We are not an islamic state. We are the United States and comedy should have no limit. South Park makes fun of all groups. GROW UP ISLAM!! I think all religions are dangerous, but Islam and their threats constantly that make fun of Mohammed are ridiculous. GET THIS...HE WAS JUST A MAN!! Oooh, I'm scared. I offended Mohammed and the Muslims. Same with Jesus. He was just a man. Oooh, I'm scared.

    Go South Park and keep making us all laugh. If you don't like their humor, turned the &^%*&%( TV OFF!!!

    Why is it only the followers of the Muslim Super Friends leader are the offended ones? What about the whole priest smolesting young boys episode.....seriously, Muslims, lighten up. It is already a pain in the butt with what we have to go through to get on a freaking airplane – thank you Osama bin Laden (who is a farty pants by the way).

    In fact, I would be offended if they DIDN'T poke fun at me because I don't want to be left out.

    Wow. I watched the episode last night after reading the first article on CNN that discussed if Matt and Trey showed the Prophet Mohammad that there would be violent retribution. I also turned the channel at the end of the episode when all I heard was a loud BEEEEEEEEP. I am very disappointed that there are a certain group of people who feel it is THEIR right to control everyone else in the world. I dont care what God, Allah, Buddha or any other god for that matter says about who should believe what. ITS A D**N book people! Get a F***ing clue. If we ran around with our brooms and wands and pretended we could change time and change our friends into ferrets, people would think we were crazy. But its ok to threaten VIOLENCE on someone for simply mentioning a NAME or SHOWING A PICTURE(of someone we have no proof that existed for the record). I understand not showing it just for the sake of avoiding violence over a tv show, but I seriously thought Comedy Central had more balls than that.
