I’m surprised they never had it up on their website, where all the episodes are. Anyone know why that is?
Thank god someone finally leaked this. The bleeped out monologue at the end of the episode has been killing me with curiosity for the longest time.
Unfortunately I can’t view video due to internet bandwidth issues. Does anyone have a script of what the monologue was, or could they transcribe it?
KYLE: That’s because there is no goo, Mr. Cruise. You see, I learned something today. Throughout this whole ordeal, we’ve all wanted to show things that we weren’t allowed to show, but it wasn’t because of some magic goo. It was because of the magical power of threatening people with violence. That’s obviously the only true power. If there’s anything we’ve all learned, it’s that terrorizing people works.
JESUS: That’s right. Don’t you see, gingers, if you don’t want to be made fun of anymore, all you need are guns and bombs to get people to stop.
SANTA: That’s right, friends. All you need to do is instill fear and be willing to hurt people and you can get whatever you want. The only true power is violence.
Got it from reddit. Can anyone who can actually watch the video verify? No wonder Comedy Central bleeped it out. It’s incredibly damning to them.
Why is it damning to CC?
Is there any independent verification that the stuff at the end is what was censored and not something that some guy made up when he posted the video a year and a half ago?
Just so we’re all covered here…
Ahem… “Peace Be Upon Him.”
Because they censored other things in the episode (and incredibly ironically, this speech itself) due to the threat of violence and intimidation. Which proved it works, just like Kyle and Santa said.
If CC had not censored that speech, and let it run (and they should have, it had nothing to do with the Prophet Mohammad anyway except in a very tangential way), it would have shown them for what they were: giving into the threats of violence and intimidation, because that’s what works and gets stuff done.
Huh. Fair enough. I didn’t look at it that way, but i see your point.
I was not aware of any specific threat of violence if the episode was aired. Do you know what it was, and who did the actual threatening?
The video in the OP just has the bleeps removed (but background music restored), with the “uncensored” lines as subtitles. (And different from what reddit lists)
However…what sounds like the actual, uncensored dialogue, the same as reported on reddit, is on YouTube. It certainly sounds like the actual SP actors. Downlo—er, Listen while you can.
As the man said…“Barbarism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.”
Yes a group specifically threatened the creators of South Park with violence if they showed the Prophet Mohammed. Comedy Central decided to censor the episode in response to Muslim violence in general, and in regards to this specific threat.
Comedy Central was already bleeping out and visually censoring every single mention of Mohammed, so obviously they had to censor out that last speech to in its entirety, because the writers were correct and it was shameful to them.
Specifically, Revolution Muslim, a small fringe group (now defunct) founded in 2007 by two guys—one of them a converted Jew (now facing prison time for threatening attempting to incite violence against Jewish organizations), the other one (as noted in drewtwo99’s link) later sent to prison for threatening the comedy central staff.
So the actual episode hasn’t been leaked. Just some audio which may or may not be genuine?
That being not now, as the content has been removed.
Well, at least that’s a check in the “it’s real” column.
