They were proving a point. Its ok to show that but a harmless pic of Muhammed if forbidden. The terrorists are winning.

uh, there was a point they were making with that.

The people who complain about it being over the top are like the people who complained about the other episodes featuring jesus- they don't get the point being made.

And now, just like Kyle said in the episode, they've opened the door for ANYONE to be offended and to DEMAND that they don't show stuff that offends THEM.

Stone and Parker really forced Comedy Central to take a stand, and exposed them as pussies - as well as hypocrites.

This proves the point that it actually takes intellegence and sophistication to understand and apreaciate southpark, as weird as that might seem. Ofcourse it still had enough mindless humor to keep the masses happy.

Hey genius, did you know there are actually very strict standards as to what makes an american flag an american flag?

And that a picture of an american flag on a cartoon isn't actually an american flag, merely a depiction of one? There is a difference.

That was not a flag, that was not shit, and that was not Jesus. It is a cartoon. More importantly, Comedy Central did not edit the show. The black boxes were there from the begining. It was writen into the script as in"Muhamad enters with black box" It was to show that traditional American values are open to being trashed while we must be sensitive to other cultures. It was a brilliant form of satire that went over the very peoples heads that they were trying to stand up for.

It isnt right to crap on the flag. No one here will disagree, but whats more disgusting is the terrorists are winning at eroding our rights. The show proved that. They showed how the media will refuse to show something harmless yet will have no problem showing Jesus crapping on the President and the American flag.

They didnt show the scene just becuase they wanted to show the poop, flag, Jesus thing. They wanted to show the double standards.

No actually CC DID edit it. The writers knew they were going to becuase they told them earlier that it would get edited, so they used it to prove their point.

that's interesting, that's not what comedy central said in the e-mail response i got from them after i bitched them out for caving in.

i have it on my machine at work. i'll edit this post in the morning to reflect the e-mail they sent me.

Yup, Comdey Central DID puss out. The black boxes in the 1st episode was there to illustrate the Fox networks desire to not offend - and to set up the entire story. But when (in the second episode) the Fox executive was convinced by Kyle to show it, Stone and Parker wanted to show it, and it was Comedy Central who refused to allow it.

Which is hilarious, because Comedy Central of course already showed a cartoon Mohammed on South Park - on the David Blaine/Super Best Friends episode a few years ago.


So the satire was even better, because Comedy Central became the real-world version of the "Fox" network that South Park was satirizing.
