Super Best Friends! [REDACTED]

Sorry to cause an international incident, but.... there's a picture of Muhammed here. YIKES!

I don't know if you followed the recent shameful tale involving South Park and Muhammed. It goes a little something like this:

1. Years ago, SP made up the "Super Best Friends" as a gag, and had Muhammed as a member (he controls fire). It was funny, and no controversy ensued.
2. Clips from this episode appeared for several years in the SP opening credits.
3.A bunch of stuff happens in Europe/Middle East involving cartoons of Muhammed. People die - because Islam is a religion of peace, of course. Just like all of 'em!
4. In response, SP tries to show an image of Muhammed (but on a satire of Family Guy!), but Comedy Central censors them at the last minute.
5. This year, SP announced their intention of revisiting the subject in honor of their 200th episode.
6. Some born again American Muslim announces on his personal blog that the creators of SP might end up like Theo Van Gogh if they do air an image. Keep in mind, this Muslim convert is an ex-metal head with no friends. American.
7. Word of this threat reaches the MSM, and, well, PANIC!!! They're the biggest bunch of cowards ever, OR, they know fear sells and thus are always looking to amp up the fear. 
8. Comedy Central does censor the episodes as they air, including bleeping out a long speech by Kyle. Later that night, when they would usually re-air the same episode, an older repeat is shown instead.
9. The next day's usual repeats are gone; the 200th and 201st episode (these episodes) are pulled from their web site.
10. Someone points out to Comedy Central that they have been airing images of Muhammed for years. CC then removes these episodes from the SP website, and they have not returned.

Got it? Because one guy (some loser with a blog) makes a vague threat, a major American entertainment group censored current material, then went back into the archives to censor that material.

Remember: Land of the Free, Home of the Brave. Ha!
