Comedy Central censors `South Park`

Out of every little fucked up thing going on in the world these days, every single twisted and horrific act, every tiny gut-wrenching, vomit-inducing tear-jerking moronic sign of hopelessness, this one, this little moment of censorship, pissed me off and broke me down the most.

South Park may have just been named winner of a Peabody Award, but that did not stop the Comedy Central censors from pulling a controversial scene.

Wow, must have been pretty fucking tasteless to censor South Park. They had an episode in which Santa Claus and Jesus kill Iraqi soldiers. What could be off limits?

Instead of the planned image of Mohammed during Wednesday night`s episode, viewers saw a title card that said: 'Comedy Central has refused to broadcast an image of Mohammed on their network,' E! Online reported. The network did, however, allow the images of President George W. Bush, Jesus and the U.S. flag being covered in a bowel movement.

Let's recap that. Muhammed = no, President Bush and Jesus Christ shitting on an American flag and each other = yes. Terrorism wins. Good show al-Qaeda. You have defeated our first ammendment, the foundation of the American nation.

A source said Comedy Central decided to nix the frame out of concerns for public safety.

So we don't show Muhammed cartoons out of concern for terrorist reprisals but Jesus taking a shit is ok? Are we showing Islamic fanatics compassion or teaching Christian fundalmentalists the power of violence in the name of God? Shame on you Comedy Central. Shame for your hypocracy and your lack of resolve to the nation that watches your show. Even though I enjoy South Park, my viewership days of the show are now over.

Our right to free speech should not be censored by a network that allows cursing at night, images of Jesus shitting on a US Flag and millions of other images and sentences that could be themed tasteless by anyone who sold their sense of humor. Apparently the only thing off limits is Muhammed.

Hey Islam, fuck your prophet and your religion. Why do I say that? Not only because your religion resorts to violence at all times of confrontation but because, well, it's my right as an American and a human being possessing the capability of independant thought. And fuck you Comedy Central for your lack of humor. Ironic.
