Free Radicals

I want to start off this entry by stating that I am a fan of the show South Park.  I feel that in 14 seasons on the air the show has not missed a beat and is still one of the funniest things on television.  The pull no punches and never take the easy way out.  What is most amazing is that they produce such quality in such a short time.  Their season does not have them writing and animating months before airing.  It’s my understanding that they usually complete their episodes on Tuesday for a Wednesday airing.  Cannibal the Musical aside Matt and Trey have yet to put out anything that does not make me laugh my ass off.  Needles to say this entry will be extremely biased.

                If you have been paying attention, the two creators of South Park have recently been called out publicly by a website called revolutionmuslim.com.  They were told that should they insult the prophet Mohammed that they will probably meet a fate the same as Theo Van Gogh.  If you are not aware of the situation regarding Van Gogh, he was a Dutch film maker who was murdered by a Muslim who took extreme exception to his film Submission which addresses the treatment of women in the Muslim world.  I have seen Submission and you should too.  It’s a powerful piece of film with a strong message.  It is in English and available all over the internet.  Just a warning though, there are boobies.

                So the internet tough guys at revolutionmuslim.com have for all intensive purposes put out their own jihad against Matt and Trey because they have “insulted the prophet.”  I saw the episode and can’t really find where they insulted him.  They stated very clearly that Mohammed is the only person throughout history who is not fair game.  They followed the letter of the law(not actual laws, but the laws that some subscribe to.)  They did not in any way depict his image.  These douches obviously choose to have a literal interpretation of sharia, and not a conceptual one.  I bet they follow everything to the letter of the law, so how can they get mad for this?  Matt and Trey found a loophole.  Give them credit.

                Let’s look at these pillars of the community.  The group was started by a man named Joseph Cohen.  Yep you got that right, they were started by a self hating Jew who converted to Islam.  They follow the teachings of a man named Abdullah el-Faisal, a radical who is quoted as saying “Our way is the bullet, not the ballot.”  Good looking out “holy man.”  The same piece of crap who was convicted of soliciting the murder of Jews, Americans, Christians and Hindus.  I will give Mr. Cohen credit as he has since left the group because he felt them to be too radical.

                Now I am not here to dispute religion or God.  Personally I am a big fan of God, but not a fan of his supporters.  What I want to call into question is the way people carry out what they believe to be his will.  Man is a flawed creature, so how on earth can we really know what God’s will is?  If we do accept the believe that The Koran was written by God himself how can we know what he really meant?  The book is more than 1200 years old.  That was a long time ago.  I have trouble knowing what my wife wants most of the time and I live with her.  Also if you claim to truly know what God’s will is, having an absolute understanding of his wishes, doesn’t that make you just like God?  I’m not a religious scholar, but is that not blasphemy?  I have an idea,  if you are claiming to speak for him shouldn’t you preface your statements by saying “I’m not 100% sure but from knowing what I know, and all that I have studied, I believe in my heart that this is God’s will.  Do with it what you may.”

                While researching this blog I did go to revolutionmuslim.com but the site was down.  I did however find their blog.  These kooks do a great job of trying to convince themselves that their views are correct and without dispute, almost as if God himself wrote them.  They blame American imperialism for all the ills of the world.  The same imperialist country that gives them the freedom to be pussies from behind a keyboard.  Am I doing the same as they, sure.   But these are my feelings, beliefs and opinions.  They belong completely to me and never for a second do I say that they have the endorsement of God.  I admit whole heartedly that I have no idea what his will is.  I’m just going to try my best to be a decent person and hope when my life ends that him and I are okay.  Isn’t that the best anybody can do?

                So as of the writing of this blog, I did not see how they followed up the treatment of Mohammed.  I set my DVR for the later showing and instead of 201 I got Scrotie Mc Boogerballs.  Hopefully it will be online later and I can watch those infidel pigs and laugh my ass off.  And to the cowards at revolutionmuslim.com I have some advice for you.  If you hate this country so much buy a ticket to Iraq and behave like other “soldiers of God” have in the past.  Put down the keyboard and pick up a gun.  Walk up to the closest U.S. soldier you see with said gun and watch as he sends you to see Allah faster than you can say “Holy Shit, what the Fuck am I doing?”

    Scott the problem with these guys is that in fact it does say this kind of stuff in the Koran. I am tired of people saying Islam is a peaceful religion, blah,blah. Yes i think most Muslims are peaceful BUT their book is rife with violence. These numnut radicals feel their violent outbursts in the name of God are ok because the book tells them Mohammad did these things. I applaud Matt and Trey and anyone else that calls them out on ANY occasion. By the way as a follow up you may be interested in this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glqbMKjgMBQ&feature=player_embedded
    Once you get through her Romanian accent it is a very articulate and insightful breakdown. Hope no one calls a fatwa against you….or me for that matter :)

    Ocho, I agree that the Koran has some gems in it. I also think it’s our job as civilized people to separate the wheat from the chaff. I can’t honestly be expected to believe that a man lived in the stomach of a whale when science has shown it’s impossible. I can’t be expected to not eat pork now that I know you just have to cook or cure it. Sharia is weilded like a sword many times to distract the masses from the poverty and lack of basic needs provided by governments in certain regions of the world. It’s funny how some of the so called jihadists in this country think it’s so horrible here and so great there. I’d say an overwhelming majority of the people there would trade places with them in a second. I for one will take a free society over a “moral” society any day of the week.

    Also lost in all this is the way Comedy Central caved, what a bunch of cowards censoring the show. Correct me if i am wrong but this show regularly has Jesus, Cartman’s anti-semitic rants and a gay teacher? It questions and slightly offends everything in a satiric manner AND it’s a freaking cartoon. For these clowns at revolution douchebag.com to threaten violence (insinuating Trey and Matt will end up like Van Gogh) and get away with it, is frightening. I am sorry but if that was a right wing blog or a DailyKos.com threatening private citizens like that there would be a criminal investigation but since it’s Islam, we won’t touch it with a ten-foot pole? Ya know Scott a free society has to have some moral compass in it to continue (just ask the ancient Romans how not having one worked for them), what I want to know though is when did questioning religious dogma or symbols become something a “free” society would dare not defend?
