South Park vs. Islam Update [Update below]

For the background on this, please click here.

Comedy Central did air part two of the controversial episode last night.  However, as James Hibberd reports:

After last week’s episode of the Comedy Central series sparked a threat (and yes, it was certainly a threat) from a radical Islamic website, the network has cracked-down-for-their-own-good on creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone during last night’s continuation of the show’s storyline.

Last night, “South Park” continued the controversial Muhammad storyline, but with a key difference: every instance of the words “Prophet Muhammad” was bleeped out, making the episode practically incomprehensible, especially to anybody who missed the previous week.

The character of Muhammad was once again also hidden from view, covered by a large block labeled “censored.”

A Comedy Central spokesperson confirmed it was the network’s decision to bleep the words.

The Muhammad content is also not available on the South Park Studios website.

A message on the site states: “We do not have network approval to stream our original version of the show. We will bring you a version of [episode] 201 as soon as we can.”

Also, in the standard ‘I’ve learned a valuable lesson…’ monologue by Stan at the end of the show, the whole thing was bleeped-out by a long and continuous bleep noise [this was also applied to the monologues by Santa and Jesus that agreed with Stan].  Methinks this was done by Trey and Matt as a protest over the other censorship.

Bravo to Trey and Matt for not backing down and…

UPDATE at 1909…

-So far my arse hasn’t be Jihaded for posting the South Park picture of Mohammed uncensored!

Glenn Reynolds weighs in on the matter with a spot-on comment on the cowards who tremble in fear at the slightest chance of offending Islam:

But here’s a warning of my own: Those who have no backbone will do the bidding of those who do.

    Who is worse? Muslim cry-babies or those who buckle to their demands?

      Those who buckle and are cowards in the face of evil.

    So where’s the Flying Spahgetti Monster and Xenu, so we can insure EVERYONE can be offended?
