Patterico's Pontifications


Last Night’s South Park

Filed under: General,Humor — Patterico @ 9:19 pm

Michelle Malkin discusses last night’s excellent South Park episode regarding Mohammed cartoons. I already mentioned this in a comment, here, but thought I’d give it its own post.

At one point, there is a town meeting at which citizens discuss how to deal with the fact that “Family Guy” plans to show Mohammed depicted in a cartoon. One citizen proposes that, during the airing of the show, everyone in the town bury their heads in the sand — literally — to demonstrate to Muslims that the citizens of the town are not watching the episode. Michelle quotes another citizen’s stirring response:

Freedom of speech is at stake here, don’t you all see? If anything, we should all make cartoons of Mohammed and show the terrorists and the extremists that we are all united in the belief that every person has a right to say what they want. Look people, it’s been really easy for us to stand up for free speech lately. For the past few decades, we haven’t had to risk anything to defend it, but those times will come. And one of those times is right now. And if we aren’t willing to risk what we have, then we just believe in free speech, but we don’t defend it.

Michelle doesn’t tell you what comes next: someone else replies: “I like the sand idea.” And that’s what they all decide to go with.

Good stuff.

  3. IMNSHO, Manbearpig is the second stupidest SP episode that has ever aired, bested only by the one about Oprah Winfrey and her talking privates.

  4. Manbearpig was hillarious, Im sure if you thought it was stupid it was only because you didnt grasp the punchlines. Manbearpig = Gore’s Global Warming tirade/attempted movie.

    So far I cannot track down any pics of the ellusive Manbearpig.
