South Park Creators Threatened With Death Over Depiction of Muhammad

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are the latest writers or artists to face death threats over a depiction of Muhammad. In this case, the threats are based on an image of Muhammad in a bear suit on the cartoon program “South Park.” Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee of RevolutionMuslim wrote on his Twitter account “May Allah kill Matt Stone and Trey Parker and burn them in Hell for all eternity. They insult our prophets Muhammad, Jesus, and Moses…”

Isn’t it wonderful how extremists can now simply tweet their death threats?

Another cartoon jihadi Younus Abdullah Muhammad further explained “I think it’s very clear what we are saying. Under Islam, the punishment for insulting Muhammad is death . . . You saw the picture of Theo Van Gogh lying (dead) on the streets in Europe. At the end of the day there is a very real possibility that this will be the outcome for the ‘South Park’ creators.”

What is interesting is that under the new move toward international blasphemy laws in the West, this cartoon could be the grounds for prosecution. In prior columns (here)and stories (here), I have discussed how the West is enabling these radical attacks on free speech by embracing the concept of blasphemy or prosecuting speech against religions as discrimination or hate speech.

The posting on the website states that “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.”

Of course, attacking over cartoonists is the natural progression after calling for the death of cartoon characters, here. Cartoonists may want to look carefully within their cast ranks for sleeper agents recruited by Al Qaeda. I have my own suspect . . .

  1. Comedy Central Censorship Of South Park’s Muhammad The Bear At Odds With Most Americans, Zogby Poll Finds

    “Most Americans disagree with Comedy Central’s decision to censor South Park’s depiction of the Muslim prophet Muhammad as a bear, according to a new Zogby poll.

    The poll found that 71% of all Americans disagreed with the network’s decision. The sentiment extended beyond party lines, with 60% of Democrats, 87% of Republicans, and 68% of Independents disagreeing with the decision.

    Zogby asked poll takers:

    Generally speaking, do you agree or disagree with Comedy Central’s decision to censor parts of a South Park episode deemed offensive to some Muslims?”

  2. fuck terrorist’s . the show is awsome and john stewarts right the radical muslims should go fuck themselves.nobody should have to live in fear and if our goverments gonna let these muslims assholes have theyre way, they are negotiating with terrorist threats (which I thought we didn’t do) and it’d be okay if I died tomorrow because I have surely “seen it all”. I hate those crazy dune coons and hope they all fucking die and i’m pissing on muhammed’s forehead right now.fuck radicals GO AMERICA!!!Fuck Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  3. Mike A,

    Your irrational, idiotic ravings are clearly the product of a deranged mind!

    (For anyone that missed it, my criticism, ridicule and disrespect were sarcastic… ;-))

  4. Mike A,

    “[L]ife in the United States is not intended for those unable to withstand withering criticism, ridicule, sarcasm and disrespect.”

    Many of the regulars here try to spread that exact message.

    Often, examples are provided. 😀

  5. It’s time we let the world know that life in the United States is not intended for those unable to withstand withering criticism, ridicule, sarcasm and disrespect.

  6. I liked the Daily Show’s response to RevolutionMuslim’s threat – Jon Stewart (after thanking all the religions that they’ve insulted for not going batshit insane) asked Asif Mandiv (a muslim ‘reporter’) how he felt about showing images of Muhammad and Asif said that he was a little uncomfortable with it, but that people making death threats in the name of a religion he believed in really pissed him off and then Jon brought out his gospel choir to tell RevolutionMuslim to ‘Go fuck yourselves!’

    Womanhood,

    Amen.

    Maaarrghk!,

    They brought Kenny back to life years ago (they don’t kill him EVERY episode anymore, though).

  7. So it was Santa all the time!

    What planet are these wall bangers on?!

    They throw their toys out of the pram over a depiction of Mohamed that wasn’t a depiction of Mohamed.

    They may yet cause the death of at least this particular infidel.

    By terminal exasperation!

  8. Comedy Central censors South Park in reaction.

    http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/22/south-park-episode-is-altered-after-muslim-groups-warning/?hp

    And a hearty “up yours” to the NYT for using the word “Altered” instead of the accurate term “Censored” in their headline. That was a fine fine display of genuine weasel words. Old Gray Lady, we’ve already determined you’re a woman of loose morals, but apparently a price has been negotiated as well. So does Viacom have someone in your building to write their spin or do you handle that by phone and e-mail? Do they Twitter in their censorship demands to you too, NYT?

    Corporatist Lackey Nitwits.

    See that NYT? Precision in definitions. It makes a world of difference, Faded 4th Estate.

  9. I watched both episodes – Not only was Muhammad blacked out with a “censored” block, but the true individual in the bear costume was none other than … Santa Claus.

    IMHO, another reason why organized religion is such a farce.

  10. Joe G,

    Do you have a problem with SouthPark? It is one show that Laura does not know I watch. Come on over and we can line em up and have a good time.

  11. Part 1 of the episode has aired already. The rather ridiculous plot revolves around whether or not they can show Muhammad at all. By degrees, they keep pushing the boundaries. “What if he just talked on the phone? Is that okay?” “What if we bring him here but he stays in the car? Is that okay?” “What if we covered him with a sheet? Is that okay?” At first, he was covered by a big black “CENSORED” bar. Eventually, he comes out wearing a bear costume.

    Throughout, I kept wondering how long it would take for the death threats to come…

    I wonder if the warning label at the beginning of every show can protect them in a lawsuit?

    “ALL CHARACTERS AND EVENTS IN THIS SHOW–EVEN THOSE BASED ON REAL PEOPLE–ARE ENTIRELY FICTIONAL. ALL CELEBRITY VOICES ARE IMPERSONATED…..POORLY. THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM CONTAINS COARSE LANGUAGE AND DUE TO ITS CONTENT IT SHOULD NOT BE VIEWED BY ANYONE”

  12. the absolute root of oppression….do it my way or I’ll kill you….

  13. nal,

    You forgot “and the Ho.”

    How about the stations that run southpark and the people that watch it.

  14. This seems a true enough threat to me and not rhetorical hyperbole. Personal information about the cartoonists was also published on the RevolutionMuslim website.

  15. Has this episode been aired yet?
    I used to be an avid watcher until Kenny was replaced by Butters.
    What my question is getting at is how do they know that it’s really Mohamed in the bear costume? It could be an imposter. Does he reveal himself?
    And should we not be facing up to these religeous bigots?
