South Park creators will “probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh”

posted at 2:20 pm on April 20, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Hmmm … do you think that threats leveled against the creators of South Park for last week’s episode came from Tea Partiers?  Buddhists enraged over the depiction of Buddha snorting cocaine?  Redheads incensed over their depiction as terrorists?  Comedy Central execs embarrassed over the slam they received for their pusillanimity in handling a previous episode dealing with censorship?  Barbara Streisand?  Not exactly.  In fact, threats against Trey Parker and Matt Stone came from one group that they specifically didn’t mention in “200″:

The radical Islamic Web site Revolutionmuslim.com is going after the creators of the TV cartoon series “South Park” after an episode last week included an image of the Prophet Mohammed in disguise.

Revolutionmuslim.com, based in New York, was the subject of a CNN investigation last year for its radical rhetoric supporting “jihad” against the West and praising al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Its organizers insist they act within the law and seek to protect Islam.

On Sunday, Revolutionmuslim.com posted an entry that included a warning to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they risk violent retribution – after the 200th episode last week included a satirical discussion about whether an image of the prophet could be shown. In the end, he is portrayed disguised in a bear suit.

The posting on Revolutionmuslim.com says: “We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

Of course, this is exactly the point Parker and Stone intended to make — or rather, intended to provoke people into making for them. During the episode, Randy Marsh scolds Stan by saying, “Jesus doesn’t matter where Mohammed’s involved,” as a way of explaining why people feel perfectly safe in satirizing other religious figures but won’t treat Mohammed the same. It’s simple; Islamists threaten people with terror whenever they feel insulted, which is exactly what happened here.

Kudos to CNN for reporting on this, but don’t expect it to be a trend. We’ve watched as Tea Party speeches got dissected by cable-news network hosts for any sign of latent bigotry and violence in order to paint as terrorists and threats those Americans who peacefully assemble for political change.  How much time will get spent by Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, and Ed Schultz on MS-NBC in parsing “will probably wind up like [assassinated filmmaker] Theo Van Gogh for airing this episode” and determining whether radical Islamists tend to be terrorists and threats?  While these hosts hyperventilate over words like “regime,” “target,” and  “crossfire,” they’ll avert their eyes to a real threat.

That will prove the other main point from Parker and Stone, which is that the media hasn’t exactly manned up in facing this threat.

Here’s a clip from the show, and watch the whole episode at South Park Studios.  It’s not safe for work, but it’s one of their best episodes in the last couple of years.

The veiled threat against Matt and Trey sounds like a hate crime to me. But of course our justice dept has to approve the hatee.

I find it really sad that a religion, if you can call it that, issues death threats about a cartoon.
There is nothing to respect about such a religion.

If, G_d forbid, the Islamo-fascists got Parker and Stone, what are the odds that stars like Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise and Susan Sarandon, would cry out over them having been silenced over their art?

Islam borders on cultish. Apostates are killed, heretics are killed, blasphemers are killed, dissenters are killed, skeptics are killed—everyone is killed if you don’t go with the program, even people who have no opinion at all. It is utterly ridiculous for members of the media to continue to describe this “religion” as one of piece when its followers routinely kill people in the name of said “religion” and use the threat of imminent death to chill speech. A more appropriate description would be what Ayn Rand used to describe all religions (I disagree) but which, is most appropriate for Islam: A cult of death.

andy85719 on April 20, 2010 at 2:35 PM


This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.

Finally, we get some honesty from the R.o.P.!

We have to warn Matt and Trey..

These guys are going to have to work on their death threat parlance. “We have to warn Matt and Trey” doesn’t sound nearly menacing enough. Gotta wear the right outfit, point the index finger toward the sky, and uncork some much more menacing language. And do it on video from a cave or hovel. At least throw in an “infidel” or two.

Ed Morrissey must immediately denounce not only the blasphemes South Park cartoons that hurt the feelings of all good Muslims everywhere, but he must also denounce all disbeliever attacks on the Prophet, Peace be upon Him. He must also throw his full personal support as well as that of Allahpundit and all the bloggers in the Green Room behind the U.N. resolution passed in December prohibiting defamation of Islam including making such defamation a crime under international law and turn over to us any such criminals that are within their jurisdiction to us for punishment. He must also call for the expulsion of all Jews from Palestine so that Muslims can once again return to their rightful homeland there. He must also denounce all of the Crusades and demand that reparations be paid to Muslims and all the land in Europe that was stolen from them be returned. He must also stop all criticism of our beloved brother, Imam Obama. He must also agree to meet all of the demands that Muslims may make in the future. Allah willing.

Aleph on April 20, 2010 at 2:41 PM

So I guess this means any images of Islamic bears on TV or in newspapers also will carry a fatwa against the creators? (In that case, thank Allah that Muhsin Muhammad is out of Chicago and back with the Carolina Panthers — the networks were showing Muhammad in a Bears suit 16 times a year for a while).

“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

If you were to substitute “Barack and Nancy” for “Matt and Trey”, and “JFK” for “Theo Van Gogh”, you would bet you’d be getting a knock on your door from the Secret Service (as well as wall-to-wall media coverage). Let’s just see you try and argue that it’s not a threat.

So why is this any different?

Recall, this isn’t the first time South Park has satirized Mo. There was Super Best Friends.

On April 12, 2006, the South Park episode titled Cartoon Wars, Part II was supposed to once again depict Mohammed as part of a plot about him appearing on a different cartoon show, but Comedy Central caved in to intimidation and forbade the creators of South Park from actually depicting Mohammed in the episode. As a result, they just showed a black screen saying “Comedy Central has refused to broadcast an image of Mohammed on their network.”

“Aleph” is the first letter of the Hebrew Alef-bet (i.e., Alphabet).

Also, this is basically a rehash of an episode from 2006, called “Cartoon Wars.” The main thrust of the two-parter was to mock Family Guy’s style of humor, but it was all based around whether Family Guy would be able to show Mohammed as the punchline for a joke by Peter. One of my favorite things was in the teaser for part two, the *dramatic voice* said: “Will the show be allowed to air, or will Comedy Central puss out? Tune in next week!”

And of course they DID puss out, because the censored the image of Mohammed (granted, the Danish cartoon incident – which sounds absurd just saying it – was a more recent memory at the time, but STILL…. the things they let Jon Stewart say and yet they won’t show Mohammed???) was indeed censored.

Rightwingguy on April 20, 2010 at 2:53 PM

As has been pointed out numerous times (here on HA, Michelle Malkin’s site, and other honest news outlets) Islam is the religion of perpetual outrage and is so for a very good reason; it’s an excuse and cover for their goal of a world dominated and controlled under an Islamic Caliphate!

In other words, any slight against their religion real or imagined is justification enough to kill those that will not submit! The truth of the matter is Fascist Islam is less concerned about their religion being mocked or somehow insulted and much more concerned about all infidels submitting to Islam and/or dying!

It’s doubtful Comedy Central would let them.

Wait until they reveal Muhammed is Cartman’s father, and Eric becomes a Muslim (just a rumor going around)

I doubt that’ll be it. Cartman was told in the last episode that his father was in the room with them when the townspeople told him that his mom was his dad, and Mohammed wasn’t there.

It would be interesting though.
