Matt and Trey Parker did a funny thing- to get around Comedy Central censorship that will not allow them to depict Mohammad; they had the prophet in a bear suit. That got the freaks at RevolutionMuslim.com to publish a warning to the South Park Creators saying that they could end up like Theo Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was shot and stabbed to death by an extremist, for depicting Muhammad on their show. Below the warning were a picture of the murdered Van Gough and the addresses of Comedy Central’s New York office and Parker and Stone’s California production office. The Jihadists at Revolutionary Muslim say they are not encouraging violence, only encouraging their readers to voice their displeasure with Comedy Central. If one of those readers plows into the comedy central offices with a truck full of explosives, well then glory be to Allah.
If you think murder in the name of God is only for Muslims, consider our last president started our current war after- in his own words- speaking directly with God.
As Sam Harris quipped: The president of the United States has claimed, on more than one occasion, to be in dialogue with God. If he said that he was talking to God through his hairdryer, this would precipitate a national emergency. I fail to see how the addition of a hairdryer makes the claim more ridiculous or offensive.”
The USA is a country where more than 2/3 of the population apparently believes that Jesus Christ will come down and do his magic, orchestrate the end of days, whisk away those chosen few to salvation while leaving the rest us of to fall into a fiery pit with Satan. Look, any reasonable person will agree that strict adherence to Christian or Muslim belief systems are not compatible with the long-term survival of the human species. So, what do we do?
To comment on the situation, I am very luck to have on the phone with me today the prophet himself. Thank you for joining me your Fatwaness.
Davis Fleetwood: Let’s get right to the point: Would you support one of your followers martyring themselves for this South Park cause?
The Prophet Mohammad: (on phone)- I’m so Faklempt about the whole ting. First, I just want to say, enough already. I am all out of virgins. Second- who doesn’t like South Park already- Matt and Trey such meshuganas they are. Third, who has time for this nonsense? Aren’t there bigger problems in the world today? All right- I’ve got to go- this yenta got me tickets to the Jackie Mason concert- I’m going with Sarah Silverman. I’m gonna tag that ass. Wish me luck.
Davis Fleetwood: Thank you for joining me prophet Mohammad. For joining me today, the prophet will receive promotional considerations including free pair of his and hers Hermit with Davis Fleetwood underwear.
