Cyber Jihadi-takfiri Claims "Victory for the Real Muslims" in South Park-Revolution Muslim Affair, or, Why Censorship is Bad

jihadi-takfiri "at-taqwa" (piety, piousness) crows about the "clear victory" of "the real Muslims" (jihadi-takfiri types), as evidenced by Comedy Central's decision to censor Episode 201 of the animated comedy show South Park, which included the Prophet Muhammad as a character. The company's decision, "al-taqwa" alleges, was because of thinly-veiled threats issued by a couple of radical American Muslims who run a web site, Revolution Muslim. Their crowing is run without edits.

A Clear Victory for the Real Muslims: ‘South Park’ Episode Is Altered After Muslim Group’s Warning

The new episode of “South Park” on Wednesday night tried to revisit this character, but with the name and depiction of the character blocked out. It was unclear how much of the bleeping was Mr. Stone and Mr. Parker’s decision. In a message posted on their Web site,, they wrote that they could not immediately stream the new episode on the site because:

After we delivered the show, and prior to broadcast, Comedy Central placed numerous additional audio bleeps throughout the episode. We do not have network approval to stream our original version of the show.

On Thursday morning, a spokesman for Comedy Central confirmed that the network had added more bleeps to the episode than were in the cut delivered by South Park Studios, and that it was not giving permission for the episode to run on the studio’s Web site.
