South Park Controversy Stirred by Two Moron Converts  

0 Replies

So it figures, two moronic converts try to flame the fires of hostility.

Probably two little rich kids with too much time on their hands. Do these folks have a job other than dipping their hands into  Dad and Mom's pockets?

Seems to me if they did, they wouldn't have time to stir the pot of dissidence.

I must say, it's good news that most mainstream Muslims, like everyone else, can take satire with a grain of salt:

But has there really been any Muslim outrage? The characterisation of Muhammad in a July 2001 episode entitled "Super Best Friends", where he teams up with Jesus, Moses, and Buddha to defeat evil (even though Buddha "doesn't really believe in evil"), has been available for viewing online (if not on a spooked Comedy Central) for nine years without censorship, more than enough time to spark another cartoon crisis if Muslims really cared. As should be obvious by now, they don't. READ MORE

As for these two idiots threatening South Park, they don't speak for most Muslims.

As for South Park giving in -- COWARDS!

For those who buy into the old adage "Satire is the lowest form of wit" -- that adage is wrong, satire is an art form appreciated by those with a high-brow of wit.

Those two Muslim Coverts need to go home to Mommy and Daddy's backyard and play in their sandboxes.

Freedom of Speech takes Precedence Over Hurt Religious Feelings  

0 Replies

For my second rant of the year: The television show South Park being threaten by Muslims over a nonsensical caricature.

First, do I have to remind those who  are offended by South Park's satire, that this country is The United States of America.

Second, Americans, as a whole, won't tolerate our freedom of speech or expression being attacked or limited by anybody.  If there's one way to band Americans together, attack our right to free speech and expression. We may not like what's said, but we'll defend the right to say it.

Third, Islam is precious to Muslims however, it is not precious to the rest of us. As a matter of fact,  some of us find Islam offensive to our own  sensibilities. Yet, we don't threaten you with violence. We believe you have to right to worship and believe as you wish and expect, no demand  the same in kind.

We are NOT some Third World hovel, where the people live in fear and will not express themselves from that fear. We do not fear having our doors knocked down, then being dragged out into the street and tortured for our written, verbal rhetoric or any other kind of expression.

This is a country governed and ruled by ===> The Constitution of the United States and its AMENDMENTS <=== nothing else. 

The First Amendment to The Constitution protects the "right" of "free" speech:

Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. THE CONSTITUTION

Yes, many people say or write things that offend each and everyone of us. The catch is, we and YOU, by right, don't have to listen or read what offends us. Or, you and we, have a right to rhetorically give answer.

However, none of us have a right to threaten violence against anyone or anything. When the threat of violence is made. Those threatening have crossed the civilized  line and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law -- American Law.

Though it maybe against Muslim/Islamic law to depict Muhammad in any derogatory light, it's not against any of our laws and it's our laws that count, not Islamic laws, which I personally, thank God for everyday.

South Park is satirical, they have made fun of and have shone Christians, Jews, Buddhists and any other religious and/or political figures in some uncomplimentary way.

So, Revolution Muslim group here  in America, suck it up like the rest of us, you're not special. Voice your opinions and your outrage, but do not threaten violence, or threaten America's right to freedom of speech and expression, WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES   won't stand for it.

South Park airs

First Rant of the New Year: Women and Earthquakes!  

0 Replies

Are they serious!

My apologies to those readers who do read my ramblings, the few that you are.

I haven't ranted about anything in particular this year, even though I'm able to find plenty to rant about, my health controls the when and the when I should voice my displeasure.

This headline caught my bleary eye and I couldn't pass it up: Promiscuous women causes earthquakes

The prayer leader, Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi, says women and girls who "don't dress appropriately" spread "promiscuity in society."

"When promiscuity spreads, earthquakes increase," he says in a video posted Monday on YouTube, apparently of him leading Friday prayers in Tehran, Iran, last week.  Read more, if you can stomach it

This so-called Cleric, this true unholy man, is an idiot to the utmost extreme and so are the people who buy into his hate filled rhetoric.

Are Muslim Clerics serious! Are the Muslims who believe this woman-hating  low-brow nonsense serious!

When I read this misogynistic ranting, I almost choked on my coffee and started ranting myself.

Really, I mean really , in  this new millennium, the mindset of Byzantine barbarism still abounds and shocks the core of intelligence.

There is no excuse for such stupidity with all the educational resources available. It's bad enough that in many of the Muslim dominated countries, the men in power refuse education to women but, what about educating themselves?

Are there people out there, in our western world, who really believe that there can and will be peace, with people who buy into this gender specific Jim Crow[ism], gender specific hatred?

I want to give Islam and its followers the benefit of the doubt but skepticism being my nature says : "no I can't give them an inch, they'd shut me up if they could."

Then again, I'm female who follows the whims of the womb so, what do I know!
