Trey Parker and Matt Stone Getting Death Threats over South ParkApril 21, 2010

Fox News (via WWTDD) has been reporting that South Park Geniuses Trey Parker and Matt Stone have been receiving death threats over NOT showing an actual image (see above) of the Muslim Prophet Mohammad, even though they did show him the past without any uproar (see below).
A radical Islamic website is warning the creators of “South Park” that they could face violent retribution for depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit during an episode broadcast on Comedy Central last week.
The Web posting also included a graphic photo of Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 after making a documentary on violence against Muslim women.
“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,” the posting reads. “This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”
Reaching by phone early Tuesday, Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post, said he wrote the entry to “raise awareness.” He said the grisly photograph of van Gogh was meant to “explain the severity” of what Parker and Stone did by mocking Muhammad.
“It’s not a threat, but it really is a likely outcome,” al Amrikee said, referring to the possibility that Parker and Stone could be murdered for mocking Muhammad. “They’re going to be basically on a list in the back of the minds of a large number of Muslims. It’s just the reality.”
Al Amrikee said the website is considering a protest against the “disgusting” show, which also depicted the Prophet Muhammad in an episode on July 4, 2001.
“This is not a small thing,” he said. “We should do whatever we can to make sure it does not happen again.”
The posting on RevolutionMuslim.com also includes audio of a sermon by Anwar al-Awlaki — a radical U.S.-born preacher now believed to be hiding in Yemen — who discusses assassinating individuals who defame the Prophet Muhammad. It also included a link to a 2009 story in the Huffington Post that gave details of Stone and Parker’s mansion in Colorado.
Religion of peace my ass.
If you haven’t seen it, you can watch the 200th episode here. It was amazing. South Park does a great job with social commentary.
God forbid these guys should offend a Muslim and Comedy Central will do everything they can to censor South Park but judges telling a Christian that they cant wear a cross at work happens without uproar. South Park has gone after every major religion, especially Catholosism. In the KFC/Pot legalization episode Cartman can even be quoted saying: “Is that something I want to do? Does a bear shit in the woods? And does the pope shit on the hopes and dreams of 200 deaf boys?” Was I offended enough to threaten the lives of the South Park writers? No. And it’s not the first time they’ve attacked my religion. But that’s nothing compared to the whole Episode on how Mormonism is... well…
Matt and Trey are two of the most intelligent people making a television show today. What ever happened to not watching or participating in things that offend you? Everyone has to have an agenda nowadays, but the problem is, South Park is an equal opportunity offender. They go after everyone and don’t give a shit about it. Thats what I love about the show. (And about the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights of the American Constitution. America, F*ck YEAH!)
