South Park Under Fire

Let’s be honest, South Park has always been known to push the limits when it comes to content. I know I find most of their content funny, but at the same time I don’t take it seriously. I can see where this episode could offend the Muslim community as it would offend Christians in America if they did something like this to Jesus, but threatening to kill someone over it is a little much.

The apparent death threats from Revolution Muslim are an interesting subject, since we are dealing with things like this during the Michael Brown-Darren Wilson case. Yes, you have the right to speak what is on your mind, to a point. When that freedom of speech goes as far as to be a threat, that’s where you will see people, and possibly law enforcement draw the line. The Supreme Court is actually dealing with this case right now, as to what is considered a threat on social media or the internet in general. It will be interesting to see what the high court says.
