As you may have heard, part of South Park's newest episode has been censored because it talks about the Prophet Muhammed and shows him in a bear suit, joking about the fact that Muhammed can't be shown in a picture. Now Muslim groups are making threats to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Comedy Central caved in and censored part of the episode.
Reading the story just pissed me off. Political Correctness (also known as double standards) has run amok. Why can Muslim extremists hold signs that say "Death to America", or "Butcher all Jews", but people can't show a picture of Muhammad or criticize Islam? It's ridculous. Ever since 9/11 the Muslim World has been pushing the West around with their intolerant beliefs.
South Park aired an episode in July 2001 that showed Muhammed uncensored, and no one really made a huge deal out of it. Plus, the newest episode shows things that people would find much more offense, like Jesus watching porn and the Hindu god sniffing cocaine. Muhammed just stands around in a freaking bear costume. Comedy Central censored the show for millions because of the demands of a certain group of people that could have just not watched the show.
Ridiculous. Hope South Park moves to a channel that is less PC (Politically Correct).
