Comedy Central censors all references to Mohammed on “South Park”; Update: Parker and Stone issue statement

posted at 4:25 pm on April 22, 2010 by Allahpundit

As InstaGlenn says, this is actually the perfect ironic conclusion to the media’s post-Tax Day binge of hyperventilating about tea party extremism. Cranks holding up “Impeach the Kenyan!” signs at a right-wing rally are grist for a thousand NYT op-eds about Oklahoma City, but have jihadis intimidate the parent company of one of the most highly regarded comedies on television into blacking out its shows and it’s essentially a curio for the TV beat.

Comedy Central bleeped out all references to the Prophet Muhammad in Wednesday night’s episode of the animated show “South Park.”…

In addition to bleeping the words “Prophet Muhammad,” the show also covered the character with a large block labeled “Censored.”…

Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post [on the Muslim website threatening the creators of the show], told Foxnews.com he wrote the entry to “raise awareness.” He said the grisly photograph of van Gogh was meant to “explain the severity” of what Parker and Stone did by mocking Muhammad.

“It’s not a threat, but it really is a likely outcome,” al Amrikee said, referring to the possibility that Parker and Stone could be murdered for mocking Muhammad. “They’re going to be basically on a list in the back of the minds of a large number of Muslims. It’s just the reality.”

True enough, true enough. Mohammed also figured in last week’s episode; he wasn’t shown, per Comedy Central’s policy in recent years of bowing to Islamic blasphemy laws, but his name was mentioned in the dialogue. This week, after the new threats from filthbags like al-Amrikee, even that was gone. So absurd was it that some South Park fans thought Trey Parker and Matt Stone might have bleeped the name themselves as a goof. Not so:

On Thursday morning, a spokesman for Comedy Central confirmed that the network had added more bleeps to the episode than were in the cut delivered by South Park Studios, and that it was not giving permission for the episode to run on the studio’s Web site.

When you look for the episode on South Park’s website, this is what greets you. One mystery lingers: In the final scene, in vintage SP fashion, a bunch of characters gave mini-soliloquies about the moral of the story. The twist this time is that they were all bleeped out — roughly 30 seconds’ worth of airtime, filled with nothing but bleeps. I thought for sure that that had to be a joke — the moral of the story was how absurd censorship can be, and that was a perfect way to show it — but now I’m not so sure. Says the AP, “Comedy Central also censored 35 seconds’ worth of a conversation toward the end of the show between the characters Stan, Jesus Christ and Santa Claus. The network wouldn’t say Thursday whether this contained any reference to the warning [from jihadists].”

In lieu of a clip from the show, here’s something from last week’s Sarah Silverman Program goofing on Holocaust memorials that didn’t need to be censored. Why? Because no one threatened to bomb Comedy Central for showing it.

Update: Unbelievable.

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.

So not only did Comedy Central censor the Mohammed stuff, but when they were called out for being cowards, they censored that too. Perfect.

Comedy Central didn’t have a problem with Matt and Trey’s take down of Mormonism and Joseph Smith in 2003 (Episode #712). Of course, there are only 13 million mormons and they tend not to be violent.

Yes, RD, you and I know that and peeps who are privy to what Islam is all about know that but THAT IS NOT HOW IT’s BEING SOLD here in America.

The President BozObama is NOT selling it that way and do you think CAIR is selling it that way? NO…they are selling it the false way and you have people here in America cowed by not wanting to be a hater and NOT calling ‘em out on the HS about being so religious or even worse…buying the HS. And I find laissez faire attitudes like yours disturbing. I’m not the one who you have to convince about how it is NOT inconsistant. I KNOW!

Everyone’s having a cow about a stoopid SouthPark cartoon but the reality is that we are propping up a country, supposedly to make them “cilvilized” and out men and women are dying for this. C’mon, you know the truth about Islam and you know that most Americans are NOT privy to it…they think it’s the “religion of peace”!

I hope for the rest of the season, Muhammod is in EVERY scene, censored, and EVERY character says his name and is censored. I hope they keep forcing him to be in the episodes until it becomes so ridiculous that either Comedy Central caves or they have to fire Matt and Trey, at which point they can move on to a better place. They have F U money at this point, I hope they use this power.

thphilli on April 22, 2010 at 5:50 PM

+1 Amen.

Since Chef died, maybe Matt and Trey can add a new cafeteria cook named (wink, wink) Mohammed. But it’s not the real Mohammed, Comedy Central, just some guy(wink, wink).

JavelinaBomb on April 22, 2010 at 6:11 PM

Great idea… that would do it… but in order to remove the excuse that the new character is just a guy named Mohammed, maybe his given name should have more in it, like Profit Mohammed, or Mohammed Razool, something like that.

Then as suggested by another commenter above, they should mention other, real people named Mohammed on the show, such as Muhammad Ali, as often as possible but bleep the “Mohammeds” out… until the only “Mohammed” we can hear is the new cook. If challenged on the bizarre censoring, Parker/Stone could argue that Mr. Ali is a real person, as was the prophet Mohammed, so they are censoring his name so as not to give offense, whereas the new cook “Mohammed Rasul Allah” is a fictional character (hello??) and therefore shouldn’t offend anyone. N’est-ce pas?

RD on April 22, 2010 at 9:14 PM

Oh yeah RD…the whole nation is privy to the truth of Islam and what Mohammed did. Just like THIS link here on Hot Air says.

The Silverman video reminded me of a very important point about comparative religions. It’s not just secular Jews like Silverman that can laugh about their religion. Even Orthodox Jews, and I’m no fan of Orthodoxy, can mock Judaism. I know that strong self-mockery is also permitted in Christianity and Buddhism and I strongly suspect Hinduism also. In contrast, the Ayatollah Khomeni correctly noted that there is no humor in Islam.

I’m not making a threat here but I know that my next sentence will be deliberately misinterpretted as threat. I am willing to kill at the risk of being killed for a world in which humor is allowed. I simply mean that free men must fight sharia by all possible means, and it may very well come to warfare. War is well worth our freedom. I suppose this paragraph should have been more funny. How many muslims does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

How do you seriously avow the importance of humor?

darii on April 22, 2010 at 10:27 PM

When looking at logical clean slate, free of conditioned responses, at the face of religion one can see how silly it is, yet pschologically how logically it is “ingrained” on society through conditioning from youth, which passes on from generation to generation. Organized religion is nothing but a ruse, a scam that follows the same regimen as the state. It sells you pie in the sky false promises, demands money, and commands obedience. Religion was the precursor to the state, the creator of the Polis. That was Genesis, the genesis a Polis, a ruling unit, the creation of an authority and a subordinate where one previously did not exist, where the knowledge of good and evil was concealed to God’s subordinate only to be revealed by God himself through the profits, and not to all of man.

Now I usually comment on the log in the eye of Christianity because it’s political system has more effect on my life than others, certain Jewish elements play a role in foreign policy from the “domestic” side, domestic in quotes because it does deal with dual citizens. Islam doesn’t play as big of a role in domestic based politics, meaning influence on politicians. But as far as this is concerned, hearing idiots getting all hot and bothered over this kind of crap makes me feel ambivalent as to their slaughter. The dangerious thing about Islam is its strictness, the Koran, a direct call to submit to the nonsense contained therein, the trilogy in the saga of the sandpeople, another religion based on addendum. People who threaten violence over cartoons deserve to die, their life is worth less than their death, they are the lowest level of the food chain. People who allow themselves brainwashed by these traditional conditioning mechanisms to this extent are no longer humans, they are animals and need to be put down. Comedy Central bowing to the backlash makes them even lower, some PR Executivecrement shivering from his office, frantically searching his filing cabinets for his testicles.

According to the news reports, the proper site was revolutionmuslim.com, not revolutionislam. The former is also down, and the Google cache of that page seems to confirm it is a hate group.

One board said that revolutionislam was their message board, but there’s no link to that anywhere on the cached revolutionmuslim. The cache for revolutionislam is too new, so it’s the same as the current page and thus I can’t tell what, if anything, was there before.

So, while hilarious, it’s possible the hack was a misfire or not a hack at all.

You said islam doesn’t play as big a role as some other religions on politicians. I’m not so sure about that. There’s a lot of boot licking going on to Saudi Arabia. islam is influencing our culture more and more. Images of mohammed (feces be upon him) are the one thing that is taboo even in art museums. You can put Jesus in a jar of urine. Who has more influence?

deewhybee on April 22, 2010 at 11:10 PM

Good, good. That’s the kind of publicity that anti-Jihad people want.

Tell the public about the execution of gays, suicide bombings, subjugation of women, religious prejudice etc., and they’re apathetic. But when their cultural treasures (cartoon characters that joke about farting and say “shit” and get stoned a lot) get trashed like that, that’s when they notice. That’s when they get pissed.

I’m glad Comedy Central acted this cowardly. That’s when the backlash against this G-hahd will begin.

And they will use any excuse, whether offered by Comedy Central or someone else, to continue their jihad. Their ultimate goal is the complete annihilation of all non-muslims. And they’ve been working towards that goal for centuries, falling back and regrouping periodically, until the next fanatical leader appears to pick up the banner and move them to the next level.

The only thing that will stop the insanity is an all out assault coordinated among all the non-muslim nations of the world until their ‘cells’ are obliterated. Like a cancer, every terrorist cell must be destroyed. Unfortunately, right now the rest of the world has its own very serious economic problems and governmental problems causing major distractions, which is why the terrorist jihad is picking up steam again.

KendraWilder on April 23, 2010 at 12:55 AM

It’s not that Comedy Central is afraid of offending Muslims. It’s that Comedy Central is afraid that their employees may be murdered by Muslims for offending Islam.

Islam specifically calls for the death of those who insult Islam. As far as I know, this is unique among religions. What are we supposed to do about it?

July 10 on April 23, 2010 at 1:29 AM

Let me see if I get this straight: Comedy Central censored the name Muhammad so they won’t offend Muslims, the same people who are responsible for making Muhammad the most widely used first name on Earth.

Cowardly Central

Personally , I would not call South Park one of the “most highly regarded comedies on television”. I would call it one of the most decadent products on television, which gets away with X-rated dialogue, and gay-nude orgie sequences because it is animated instead of filmed, and because the humor is extremely well crafted

South Park is bent on breaking all taboos, and normalizing the most vile behaviour – bestiality etc – by minimalizing it with comedy. I would say the creators of South Park went light on Mohammed, compared to their multiple attacks on Christian denominations and doctrines.

Their relatively powder puff treament of the most barbaric religious cult in today’s world (sharia based fundamentalist islam) showed that holding back on the barbarians gained them no mercy.

I read this story before, in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, as citizens of one Roman town delivered tribute to the barbarian leader, who took the tribute, and then sacked the city anyway.

Instead of working to equate sharia based islam with Christianity, South Park ought to be working to show the difference, and there is a huge difference, because in Saudi Arabia, folk are facing beheading for western style entertainments, while South Park was allowed to blossom like an evil weed in this still Christian nation

And if they don’t, too freaking bad.

Insofar as truth is concerned all religions are equal: They are equally false. Start with a false proposition and add in the spice of “faith” and just about any evil can be justified in the name of some god. The inquisition justified itself using the old testament. Hitler’s holocaust was based on the blood libel originated by the fathers of Christian church. Islam is today about where Christianity was in the 14th century but, with luck, it too will fall into irrelevancy of folklore in a few hundred years if its worst practitioners can be held in check in the next decades.

Dear God if you can’t take fun being poked at you, WTH?
But then Islam is not about anything else but total domination.
You wanna be a Muslim-that’s your business.

Read this on http://www.revolutionmuslim.blogspot.com/
“. . . As for the Islamic ruling on the situation, then this is clear. There is no difference of opinion from those with any degree of a reputation that the punishment is death. Ibn Taymiyyah a great scholar of Islam says, “Whoever curses the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) -a Muslim or a non Muslim- then he must be killed…and this is the opinion of the general body of Islamic scholars.”

Likewise Ibn Mundhir, another classical scholar, said, “It is the consensus (ijma’) of our scholars that the one who curses the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) should be executed!”

This is also the opinion of Imams Malik, al-Laith, Ahmed, Ishaq, Shafi’i, and Numan Abu Haneefah.

This shows that taking this stance is virtually obligatory, but it does not mean that our taking this stance is in some way an absolute call toward the requirement that the creators of South Park must be killed, nor a deliberate attempt at incitement, it is only to declare the truth regardless of consequence and to offer an awareness in the mind of Westerners when they consider doing the same thing.

Many are proclaiming that the South Park episode’s insult was minimal and some might inquire about a situation where the insult is not that great. The renowned scholar Imam Malik said, “If someone says that the button of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is dirty, then he should be executed!””

So much for a religion of peace.

I watched the show on closed caption and Mohammad was typed when the characters said his name, I think Comedy Central censor missed that.

If a deaf jihadist detonates himself in a forest, does it make a sound?

NoDonkey on April 23, 2010 at 8:45 AM

I used to work with a guy in a famous nationwide chain of electronics stores called Mo, short for Mohammed. Yeah, he was from Iran and said he was Persian.

ExpressoBold on April 23, 2010 at 8:49 AM

Comedy Central is afraid of the religion of peace submission. In fact, they are bowing down to it in their cowardice.

Next week on Comedy Central: All things laughable about Christianity.

Why are we worried about Mexican drug cartels killing our people when we have Muslims who will do it just as effectively. Where do we stand and who have we become when some religion can tell us what to do and what not to do and then run and hide behind the religion. If this group is allowed to get away with this then who knows what’s next.

jeanie on April 23, 2010 at 8:57 AM

All religions teach intolerance. Islam just trumps all other religions in that respect.
By comparison, Barrack is like a Mohammed. They both profess that their ideas are just the best.

But only Islam calls for the execution of anyone who insults their prophet.

This was The Daily Show take on this tonight.

Pretty low hanging fruit (obviously), but funny all the same, and it’s good to see that at the very least, another show on CC didn’t ignore the controversy.

YYZ on April 23, 2010 at 1:52 AM

The link goes to the CC page and then says ‘page not found’.
Hmmm.

annoyinglittletwerp on April 23, 2010 at 9:17 AM

I’m offended when anyone of the Islamic faith, yells infidel toward anyone not of their faith. But I’d hardly break GODs law , and hurt, or kill anyone for it.

Maybe if we start voicing our anger at being offended incessantly by Islam, will they see ….turn about if fair play, and if you don’t want to be offended…don’t offend.

Shame on Comedy Central for caving into this PC crap! I guess if we offend Muslims, that’s wrong. If we offend every other religion or belief on earth….it’s fair play?

capejasmine on April 23, 2010 at 9:41 AM

Contradict a liberal on anything and you get: ‘Shut up’, he explained.

Poke fun at a centuries dead religious figure and you get: ‘You will die for this’, he explained.

It is the former in support of the latter that is chilling…and shows the path of authoritarianism.

ajacksonian on April 23, 2010 at 9:43 AM

I updated my blog, with that clip and a Bill O’ segment on it. Please visit. Thanks.

ProudPalinFan on April 23, 2010 at 9:47 AM

I’m not going to blame Comedy Central here, they are right to take measurs to protect their people. Where I think they are wrong is not to make an issue of these threats disguised as warnings and hidden behind the facade of religion. This group and others like it need to be exposed, legally challenged and stopped. Tolerance or not, there’s no place for this in our country.

So M——- is now a dirty word like s—–, c———-, p—–, f——, m——-f——-, etc, etc?

Cool! M———– is as bad to say as s——–!

Mother: “If I hear you say that filthy M——— word one more time I am going to wash your mouth out with soap!”

Son: “As long as it is not pig-fat-based soap, you old #&!@# b—–!”

albill on April 23, 2010 at 10:08 AM

The reality is Islam is not a religion any more than Communism is but the results cans be just as fatal. Dummies in this country preach tolerance that protects the intolerant. Picture you head lying on the floor not connected to the rest of you. Let them leave.

LarryG on April 23, 2010 at 10:24 AM

Dhimmitude.

When Western culture succumbs to the pressure of malcontent Muslims to accommodate their unreasonable and incompatible demands, it is Dhimmitude.

Congratulations to Comedy Central for allowing fear (terrorism) to guide their actions.

Perhaps the South Park fellas can find more fertile ground on another network.

“Whoever curses the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) -a Muslim or a non Muslim- then he must be killed

Where have I heard this before…….

Oh yea, the Sienfield line, make a statement and add “(not that there is anything wrong with that)”.

It’s a disclamer. You can say his name as long as it contains a disclamer for use.

Shouldn’t a copy right symbol be added as well?

mechkiller_k on April 23, 2010 at 10:46 AM

The Stewart comeback was lame. He has been lame for the past four years so I did not expect this skit to be different.
Jon Stewart is the Family Guy of Comedy Central.

vai2112 on April 23, 2010 at 11:01 AM

I’ve heard it been argued that, like shouting fire in a crowded theater, your freedom of speech stops at the point that your words cause violence and mayhem. It sounds plausible but I’m not buying. If we have a whole sector of society that can go nuts when it hears anything it dislikes, and makes the rest of us to tiptoe around them like nitroglycerine, then clearly they are a menace to the public and should be removed. Unless they grow a thicker skin and fast, I’m afraid things will end badly for them and for the elite that mollycoddles them.

Show Some True Courage: Make Fun Of Mohammad With Jokes

I came across an article about the recent censorship of the South Park “Mohammad” episode. It went on to say “Courage is rare and it deserves to be rewarded.” I was intrigued.

Here is the link to the entire article: http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2010-04-22/stand-with-south-park/full/

After reading the article I was disgusted to learn what this cowardly wuss considers courage to be.

His advise was to:
1) Watch South Park and support its sponsors.
2) Sign an online “anti-death-threat petition”
3) Declare that the uncensored version of South Park be televised
4) Tell Muslims to read a book that advises them to stand up to terrorists

I don’t want to watch South Park or go out of my way to support its sponsors. They are cowardly wusses for caving in to terrorist threats. I suggest that we boycott South Park to punish them for being wusses.

I have a different idea that displays true courage. Lets inundate the Internet with jokes about Mohammad. I think that dirty, gay jokes would be a good place to start.

It’s too bad that we can’t do this in solidarity with South Park, maybe they will grow some gonads and do it in solidarity with us.

Feel free to copy and past this post on every blog that you know. Have the courage to post this on your own blog. Please add more Mohammad jokes.

Wanna hear a dirty joke? Mohammad falls into the mud
Wanna hear a clean joke? He takes a bath with bubbles
Wanna hear a dirty joke? Bubbles is Micheal Jackson.

Q. Why doesn’t Mohammad use toilet paper?
A. Because he’s finger licking good!

What does a gay Mohammad and an ambulance have in common?
They both get loaded from the rear and go whoo-whoo!

Mohammad was not born gay. He was sucked into it.

I know that my jokes are pretty lame. (lol) Please help me come up with some good ones.

dhimwit on April 23, 2010 at 11:04 AM

As you well know, it has nothing to do with the thickness of Muslim skin. And it’s not just a “sector of society”, it’s a religious belief.

Islam calls upon Muslims to kill those who insult Islam.

What are we gonna do about it?

July 10 on April 23, 2010 at 11:23 AM

ISLAM IS LAME.

How can you believe a ‘prophet’ who bans eating what is part of his own name- HAM?

Shouldn’t he be called Mo-LAMB-ed?

Mohammadism kills.

Starting with the brain.

profitsbeard on April 23, 2010 at 11:23 AM

profitsbeard on April 23, 2010 at 11:23 AM

True, that!
Islam is like a reverse-religion, where most religions try to instill self worth, enlightenment, and peaceful coexistence, Islam instills and practices animalistic, demeaning, savage behavior.
Killing, mutilating, torturing anyone that defames their “god”? Right; That’s a religion.
