South Park: Cartoon Wars II

Part two of South Park’s “Cartoon Wars” aired last night in America, and there was no image of Mohammed. At the key moment a black screen appeared with the following:

"In this shot, Mohammed hands a football helmet to Family Guy."
"Comedy Central has refused to broadcast an image of Mohammed on their network."
A cartoon made by Islamic terrorists depicting Jesus and President Bush crapping on each other and the American flag is then shown without censorship.Matt and Trey may have known Comedy Central would puss out, or they may have had no intention of showing Mohammed in last night’s episode (they have shown him before, after all), but they made their point very effectively. One rule for Islam, another for everyone else.

See the clip at the Political Pit Bull, or read a transcript at the Volokh Conspiracy.

Update April 18. Those of you following the link from the Washington Post should go here to read my comment on Lisa de Moraes' column.

Such a double standard simply infuriates me further than any expletives could so indicate. As we say in French, "two weights, two measures".
