that being said, let it be known that if you're going to say universal healthcare indicates that the prez is a communist and america is headed for the shitter, you're going to look like a dumbass. and if you're going to deny that universal healthcare isn't at least derived from Marxian principles, you will also look like a dumbass. read the dang manifesto he wrote (aptly titled "The Communist Manifesto") and then talk about communism. But please do so elsewhere...? There are other message boards on which you can impersonate pedantic erudites.
Moving on to more important things, like South Park. Just realized something. It may be a stretch, but could be worth pointing out. I noticed that Joseph Smith's superpower was freezing people (like Sally Struthers HA). I wonder if this is a nod to the "chilling effect," which is a principle of censorship. Studied it a bit in a communications course I took a few semesters ago. If i recall correctly, it has a few uses, but often refers to self-censorship motivated by fear of negative consequences. Intentional? or am I reading wayyy too much into that.
Whether or not all the bleeping was a premeditated PR maneuver, this episode DEFINITELY forced its viewers to think about censorship and freedom of speech. mission accomplished.
On the same token I want the terrorists to say whatever the hell they want. They have that right.
But they shouldn't have the right to threaten harm. That is not a freedom.
No they shouldn't, and I believe that Matt and Trey should press charges. The point I am trying to get across is that the issue is freedom of speech, and not Islam. It just so happens that radicals, and liberals turn it into such a deal. I mean I believe that shows like South Park should not be censored. Keeping on the issue of free speech. I think that it is disgusting that France is banning the full faced veil thing, I think it's called a burka. I mean women of the Islamic faith have the right to choose if they want to wear it or not. I want freedom of speech, and the only way to say that to freaking political correct pinko-commies is to repeat myself over, and over again.
I loved 201. The censorship just made it even funnier.... and the fact that Muhammed wasn't even in the bear costume!
But this episode seemed to pay off - Buddha snorting cocaine was a shocking laugh. I loved it. There's something very hilarious and ironic about the fact that whilst Muhammad isn't allowed to be shown in any manner, Jesus has his laptop looking at porn. There's something quite wrong with that logic - it's funny and downright hilarious, but this is surely justification that the whole argument for censorship in this episode is wrong.
I'm dissapointed that Comedy Central censored this - but I wasn't surprised. This is an issue that has many layers to it that I almost felt like South Park were trying desperately to get it passed (which they referenced as several characters moaned about the fact it was being brought up... again.) to break a social taboo, so to speak. If they were going to do it, this should have been the episode to do it. South Park is really spot on - you can't 'pick and choose' who you make fun of. If you make a Jesus joke, you can make a Muhammad joke. That's the beauty of freedom - it's controversial but that's the price of freedom. Some people have the right to be offended, some people have the right to laugh.

Everyone knows all the important writers stay up till 3 am and discuss politics on southparkstudios.com lol. Seriously though almost made me laugh harder then the episode.
Someone obviously isn't a multi-tasker. I happen to be writing currently. Sometimes I'll stay up all night if I get in a good flow.
Did you not read the discussion? I didn't even bring the politics up. I was correcting someone who was way off-base on a subject he obviously didn't know much about, and that I happen to have studied.
I do not rate it very well , there are few comebacks but I think that there should be a forum with ideas of the show , as after 14 years ...many they can be writers...and much more they can't :)
Why was the repeat and SPS stream pulled? I think CopperCab from youtube is the reason.
Watched the episode again and the bleeped out speech must have been relating to gingers. after kyle's bleep block, Jesus says, 'that's right, dont you see gingers.....::bleeppppp::'
I think we can all agree that this episode poked fun at the gingers more than the muslims....
I'd bet that they have more of a credible threat from that coppercab dude than any muslim right now.... just a feelin'
what do you think? gingers got the episode censored, not muslims....
I highly suggest you contact Viacom MTV Networks and voice your concern on this bull crap.
You can call them at (212) 258-8000
When prompted, ask to speak with any of the following people, if they don't answer leave them a message
Tomorrow's repeat at 10:30 has also been removed from the schedule, replaced with the tale of Scrote McBoogerballs
Wonder if it will be shown in england its airs friday night over here.
Cartman: Line? Lines! I HATE LINES!!!
poor guy his parents had dead, been ripped on all his life and crushed by babs.
he had his own epsodie at least.
Your fans are with you Matt and Trey. I hope one day we will be able to see that episode in its full uncensored glory. From the looks of it, this will be your finest episode. Until we see the full thing though, it might as well have not been aired.
The long bleeps at the "what we learned" part was intentionally done by T&M. The bleeps of the "M" word were not intentional, and were made by Comedy Central because one dickhole college student in Virginia named Zack posted addresses of M&T and the CC offices on his blog and suggested that there may be violence.
CC also pulled all future air dates for the episode.
Clearly all it will take is one Muslim, one Scientologist, one Mormon, one Christian, one Jew and one crab person to post a threat on their blog and South Park will be canceled for good.
The proper reaction is for EVERYBODY to create images of the "M" guy and put them everywhere. Not to anger all Muslims, but to show the few Muslims that think that violence is the answer to this act that we aren't scared of them.
Maybe your local stop sign, telephone pole, etc. is a great place to post these images.
Also, let CC know that they are total pussies.
