    South Park's Depiction Of Muhammad Censored AGAIN






    "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."​
    ORIGINAL POST:
    Recently RevolutionMuslim.com, a website known for supporting jihad against the West, published a warning to Matt Stone and Trey Parker--the creators of "South Park." The post said that they could end up like Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was shot and stabbed to death by an extremist, for depicting Muhammad on their show. During last week's episode, the prophet appeared in a bear suit, prompting Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee to say the men "outright insulted" the religious leader. The post included a gruesome picture of Van Gogh as well as the addresses of Comedy Central's New York office and Parker and Stone's California production office.
    This week Muhammad was set to appear again, but was replaced by Santa Claus in a bear suit and the word "CENSORED" was plastered over parts of the episode. Every mention of Muhammad was bleeped out. It's not immediately clear whether this was intended to protect the show's creators or if it was executed by them to mock the hoopla, but what is clear is this is not the first time.



    During the Muhammad cartoon uproar last year, the men tried to insert a picture of the Islamic holy figure into their show, but Comedy Central said no. In an interview with the Huffington Post earlier this year, Matt Stone had this to say on the subject:
    "I think Comedy Central totally {censored word, do not repeat.}ing pussed out. Now, they weren't any different than anyone else, so it's not like you can single them out. But I think it would've been an important statement for one media outlet in America to stand up. That was one of my most disappointing moments as an American--the American press's reaction to the Muhammad cartoons. It was completely wimpy. Cartoonists, people who do satire--we're not in the army, we're never going to be {censored word, do not repeat.}ing drafted and this is our time to stand up and do the right thing. And to watch the New York Times, Comedy Central, everybody just go 'No, we're not going to do it because basically we're afraid of getting bombed' sucked. I was so disappointed."​
    The irony of it all? The pair did a show that included an image of Muhammad years before and a clip of it (pictured below) runs during the show's opening in dozens of countries, in syndication, on Comedy Central, but garnered no attention.
