Responding To Threats, Comedy Central Censors South Park Episode 201

Love | Peace Speaking of censorship and free speech intimidation by Conservatives and fundamentalists, Wired UK writes:

Comedy Central did make changes to the images and audio relating to the prophet Muhammad during the 201st episode of South Park — which was shown on Wednesday — came after the show’s creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were warned in a blog post on the Revolution Muslim website that they would “probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh” — a reference to a Dutch film-maker who was murdered in 2004 because of his film Submission, which accused Islam of supporting violence against women.

We saw the 200th episode but not 201 on Wednesday night. The reaction to the 200th episode reminds us that we are dealing with incoherent, irrational minds here — whether it’s the ABC | FOX censorship of large breasts in the Lane Bryant | Cacique commercial or the threats against South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

The 200 episode wasn’t a slam against Muhammad in any way. It was a slam against the crazies who say free speech is dead. Not everyone enjoys being pushed around by these people.
