    If you want to live in fear, be my guest.

    Don't expect the rest of us to do so.

    What they did was give into terrorists and with this they have given power to the terrorists to silence free speech.

    The terrorists have truly taken our imaginations hostage.

    Who the hell is talking about me? This is about Comedy Central. I don't live in fear because of what they do.

    So have you fulfilled my challenge to post a drawing of Mohammad with your name and home address on a prominent website or in a newspaper or something? Don't live in fear.

    What they did was give into terrorists and with this they have given power to the terrorists to silence free speech.

    The terrorists have truly taken our imaginations hostage.
    Thanks for putting the Imagination Land song in my head.

    Yes you do. You would not be supporting otherwise.

    Yes I did. But I can't tell you where or who because it is a stupid fallacy answer. And against DP rules.

    Comedy Central has disappointed me. So I guess free speech is allowed so long as there isn't a group of mentally immature people making death threats? South Park is funny because they joke about everyone. Why should Islam get a pass? Seriously, if anyone else was doing this they would just ignore them and run with an episode anyway. Shame on you comedy central, you put your viewers last and exalted a bunch of deranged murderess thugs.

    Not really. Western institutions have been petrified of the Middle East's self appointed executioner's of God since 9/11. The White House had been petrified of offending Muslims since 1992. How many newspapers have exercised their freedom of speech since Muslims displayed their angers over a cartoon? How much of the media traverses around Middle Eastern social issues once they've carefully and barely touched the stories and moved on? How many politicians have been honest at all about the wreckage between Cairo and Islamabad as they praise the illusion of a healthy region? And FOX isn't special in regards to protecting the feelings of Muslims. Oh and Hollywood? Most terrorist movies are about non-Muslims and those that are accompany it with how America made them through various government policies and relationships via evil conspiracies.

    People think I'm exaggerating this reality, but look at it honestly. Any television network concerned about depicting Jesus in an offending way? Do newspapers rush to restrict criticisms about Christianity? How about Judaism? But Islam? Oh no...don't want to offend Muslims. Wouldn't be prudent in our twisted politically correct world. In fact, the last (and only?) movie about Muhammed never even showed the figure on screen to respect the Islamic religion.

    But people will rush to accuse the Christian scourge as the real threat don't they? Do Christians burn and murder when South Park puts Jesus on the screen and pokes fun? Do Christians vastly organize into terrororist organizations throughout the West and invest in bombs? Is martyrdom really in any of the Western languages anymore unless they speak of situations within Islam? Do Catholics and Protestants slaughter each other? But Muslims in the 21st century do do these things don't they? And for that acknowledgement, Muhammad is sacred even to those who laugh and scoff at religion (just as long as its Christianity or Judaism - you know the true threat).

    It's cowardice. And it's a joke. People talk about how non-threatening to the great powers a few "rogues" of Islam are as they point to GITMO as being the object of how the terrorist won. GITMO is a temporary military installation as all are during times of war. Look at the unspoken alterations to our freedoms by those civilians who surrender it freely in our institutions to see how "the terrorist won." This South Park episode simply happens to be the latest example of how quickly our institutions are to surrendering chinks of our way of life to satisfy a failing civilization's rage. Look at the Dutch. They can't take a single step in any direction without civil unrest and social disruption.

    I am guessing CC is feeling the heat about this and the right thing to do would be them never do anything like this again. I mean it is South Park for frig sake.

    I agree, honestly the president shouldn't touch on this unless it truly becomes a national issue. Obama doesn't need to get involved, and neither do politicians in my opinion.

    south park can make an episdode about whomever they like, and comedy central shouldn't censor it, if people will be offended by it, they shouldn't watch it.
    I sense that a group of muslim employees got together and threatend a lawsuit if the episode was aired.
