Jon Stewart Supports Free Speech on South Park; Bill O'Reilly Does Not

Comedy Central, as we by now are well familiar, censored images and references to Muhammad in the latest episode of SouthPark. One would think that in our free society, our leaders, media and citizens would collectively stand together and defend South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Unfortunately, the situation is the reverse; the L.A. Times’ coverage of the Muslim death threats made to Parker and Stone perfectly manifests our media’s and culture’s disposition: the report does not back free speech nor denounce the censorship of the show, let alone the death threats or the Islamic theology on which they are based.

In this context, major props have to go out to Jon Stewart for backing Parker and Stone and for standing up for free speech in America. For courageously turning his back on the lib-Left’s agenda of overseeing the West’s surrender to Sharia Law, he is a true Patriot.

Meanwhile, none other than Bill O’Reilly has jumped on board with our society’s dhimmis. In a recent episode of his show, he stated South Park was wrong to do the Mohammed shows and he surrendered to the forces who killed filmmaker Theo van Gogh, joining those who would rather sacrifice the right to free speech than confront Sharia. His comments included the theme of what bad judgment the creators of South Park showed by engaging in behavior that could get them killed. Imagine during the time of Nazi Germany someone arguing, “Yeh those Nazis are really crazy, don’t piss them off.”

Rather than praise Parker’s and Stone’s courage, stand up for their right to make a script that they wish to make, and denounce those who threatened their lives and the tenets of the Islamic religion that sanction such threats, O’Reilly publicly promoted submitting to Sharia Law.

Is O’Reilly too personally scared to take the right stance? Does he not understand the key issues at stake? Does his career mean more to him than the vital principle of freedom of speech or does he want to please Fox News’ Saudi masters? Perhaps time will tell.

In behaving like a dhimmi, O’Reilly is complicit in the tragic process occurring right before our eyes: the capitulation of the West to Sharia Law. For this, O’Reilly is the ultimate Pinhead.
