South Park Must Die!
The New York-based organization Revolution Muslim helpfully pointed out that South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone insulted their prophet Muhammad and will probably end up like filmmaker Theo Van Gogh.
Mr. Van Gogh was murdered in 2004 for making a movie that was critical of the abuse of Muslim women in some segments of Islamic society. That pretty much meets the standard of a death threat.
Comedy Central’s lovable little rascals did a show last week – the second part airs this Wednesday – wherein every celebrity criticized by South Park threatened to take legal action against the city. Tom Cruise, who was depicted as working at a fudge plant packing product into boxes, said they’d drop the charges if they lined up a meeting with Muhammad. Ever mindful of the censorship they endured the last time they put Muhammad up on their show – let alone what happened to Danish cartoonist Jylands-Posten – the character was depicted with a black “censored” bar over the image until the boys disguised him as a lovable teddy bear. It didn’t work and Cruise unleashed Mecha-Streisand on the town.
For some reason, Revolution Muslim also felt last week’s episode was, to quote CNN, “stupid.”
CNN went on to note that Revolution Muslim supported the anti-West juhad and Osama Bin Laden.
Will Comedy Central air the second part of the story, or will they air a Terrance and Phillip episode instead? Turn in Wednesday!
For some reason, Revolution Muslim also felt last week's episode was, to quote CNN, "stupid."Not even having seen it, i probably agree.
Hmmm. That quote was supposed to be in italics…
Actual results: they bleeped out the word "Mohamed" in the second part. It was really annoying and lame.
I'm sorry if this sounds culturally insensitive, and yes I know it's forbidden for Muslims to depict the image of Muhammad but why do Muslim groups get so outraged over things like this? Especially when everyone knows it's just a silly TV show.Southpark has made fun of Judaism and Christianity far, far more than Islam and I've never heard of any Jewish or Christian group threatening to kill anyone associated with South Park or Comedy Central.
Why Brandon? Because stupid is what stupid does and these asshole groups are pretty damn stupid. Here's a question-why don't they get the fuck out of New York and the USA and go where like minded people live? Anyone?
Why don't they move? Do you know how hard it is to get a decent knish outside of the city?
I think that's going too far. I think they should just calm down and learn to assimilate.

I'm not sure I know what a "normal" American is. Bitching and moaning and making vague meaningless threats sounds pretty normal to me, but maybe that's just 'cuz I live in Connecticut.
