By now, most of you know about this: 'South Park' censored after threats from Islamic fundamentalists Generally speaking, there are two schools of thought on the issue. Some believe that the network repressed free speech by censoring South Park's depiction of the Prophet Muhammad and essentially acquiesced to the demands of Internet thugs. Others believe that broadcasting a cartoon is not worth potentially violent repercussions that could harm innocent bystanders. What do you think? What This Thread Is Not: It is not a dumping ground for your personal politics. No one cares if you hate Muslims, and if you can't contribute without injecting non-constructive opinions into the debate, do not post. If it helps, pretend that Muslims had nothing to do with the incident. Pretend that a bunch of Marklars threatened to marklar the marklar if South Park depicted an image of the Marklar Marklar. What This Thread Is: It is a debate on the limits of free speech. Is freedom of expression worth violence at the hands of extremists? Should we limit what we say if it makes us safer? Is a cartoon worth the loss of even one life? Discuss. Intelligently.
