Hold the ego here please!
Well there you go, you have the freedom to speak your mind as 'Hold please'...thank you for confirming that here. Everyone has the right to reply to your posts here, even if you do not agree with them, like them, or want to hear from them..so stop resorting to calling others a troll because they simply responded to something you wrote here, or do you just want to read your own posts/and/or others post who just agree with you. To tell you the truth you REALLY started to annoy me at about post 201 and I replied to that as best as I can...sorry to have crushed your forum ego feelings, that was never my intention.
What in the world are you talking about? You're really starting to read into things if you think that ego enters into anything here at all. And you're pretty self-centered if you though that when I mentioned "trolls" I was talking about you. How ironic that you call me out for exhibiting "ego" when it's clear that you're the one getting their feelings hurt.
My point was if you're going to call someone out for not posting their real name on something, it's a tad hypocritical for you not to have already done the same.
And don't get annoyed because I crushed both your ego and your argument. We live in the US. We are free to say (almost) anything we want as long as we have evidence to back it up.
And we should have the stones to stand up for that right, no matter who takes issue with it.

1. It was mouth-breathing cement-heads. Get it straight. It's not like you don't have a written account to reference.
2. I don't know who they are, but every forum site like this has their share. Screen names protect your identity from those who aren't exactly thinking clearly and would take things a bit too far.
3. Once again, post your real name firs and the rest of us will be right behind you. But I wouldn't bet my life on it.

But this is all perfunctory. The fact is that you're all in a huff because you've been exposed for the coward you are. You would have the rest of the world kowtow to Terrorist Extremists due to your fear that they might attack. This is schoolyard antics. The Extremists are the bullies and the rest of us need to stand up to them. Everyone does it in their own way. Parker and Stone did it in the best way they knew how. So my advice to you would be to follow their example and grow a pair.
Because changing YOUR behavior because of what you're afraid a radical group MIGHT do is exactly what said groups want you to do.

First off, nice blog/facebook, you use your real name there?

Second off, you hailed Parker and Stone as some kind of Rambo like heroes for freedom of expression,...let me tell you, it is very easy to instigate people with outlandish beliefs and hatred when your feeling quite safe in the environment where you live. BTW, your getting a little hot under the collar with your responses to me...lol

You ought to move next door to Parker and Stone and see what kind of neighbors they would make ya.

Grow a pair and follow their example? What is that, radical cartoonage? Sorry but I prefer me some Dilbert!

Mohamed should have went with his first instinct - that the creature he talked to in the cave was a demon - instead of listening to his wife.

I have nary a clue what in the world you're talking about. It's nothing new, mind you, but I thought you should know.

No. I simply said that they exercise their right to freedom of expression in their own way. Battles aren't won by bullets alone.

Since The Unabomber and 9/11, I'm pretty sure no one feels quite as safe here in the US as they used to. We're no longer "hallowed ground".

Hey, if believing that helps you sleep at night, be my guest. But you've yet to do or say anything to get me "hot under the collar".

We'd probably get along swimmingly.

Hold Please,

What kind of battle are you speaking of? Your tripping me out with that one.

You have freedoms here beyond your wildest dreams and you think we need to 'battle' still? The extremist are not putting guns to your governments head telling them to take away your freedoms..are they? I don't see bullets/cartoons flying in THAT direction. Who is taking away your freedom?, you give up certain freedoms for safety reasons, correct?

Guess what, I have the freedom to walk down the street in the seediest area you can think of in America at 3:00am with a pocket full of money hanging out....but would I do that? Would I be considered a coward for not doing that, or am I just cautious for not doing that?

Your always gonna have bad people out there and whatever motivates them to do what they do is sometimes beyond yours and mine comprehension. Good Americans are being terrorized by their own everyday and the victims come out and speak out against it, hopefully not inflame it, but stomp it out.. Do I want South Park to be a talking point in what is wrong with these terrorist? Do I want South Park to be a talking point about Americans freedom of expression?

If you take this whole South Park as seriously as those terrorist then it is in my opinion that you are not that far behind them in thought. Battle on I guess...my freedom is still the same and I will live my life the way I did before, and I believe Parker and Stone can still make a living doing what they did before here in America. I certainly would not call them brave for doing what they did, it hardly merits that reaction, just as it hardly merits the reaction of those who think it is wrong that Comedy Central did not air it exactly as it was, also, just as it hardly merits the reaction that came from a few pissed off extremists.

Get your Freedumb for everyone. As far as I know, the Government here at anytime was not going to take away the freedom of Parker and Stone...maybe the enterprise of Comedy Central did, but not the government. You might not like it, but Comedy Central has freedom to do that...stir up a little controversy, and protect their people at the sametime. Just like the government does.

You don't realize that the removal of freedom will not come with a bang, but with a whimper. Our freedoms are removed, little by little, every day, by ourselves. We vote for leaders who support legislation that prevents expression. We accept societal "norms" that restrict free speech. We the citizens approve of measures restricting expression based on fear or ignorance.
I don't ever worry about the government taking my freedoms. As long as the Constitution stands, we have recourse in those events. I worry about the citizenry acting out of fear, anger, ignorance or any combination of those emotions and accepting opinions and policies that restrict their freedoms. I have no problem with Extremists speaking out against Parker and Stone, that's expected. I have a problem with a citizen of these United States telling me, "They shouldn't have said those things, that's just going to make the Extremists upset. They should have played it safe and never said anything. If nobody says anything against them, then the terrorists will leave us alone." That's cowardly and just gives the Extremists what they want - the ability to do whatever they please and no one to call them out on it.
So I applaud anyone who calls anyone to task for when they engage in ignorant behavior, whether they do it at a rally, in a newspaper column or in an animated cartoon. THIS is one of the main tenets of our Society that the Religious Extremists (of any Faith) hate the most, because it forces them to question their own motives and views.
Question everything, especially pertaining to Religion and Government.

We all define what others do and say in different ways. Ignorant behavior of a few hopefully will not define all. That goes for here and over there.

Thank you for not resorting to calling me names or judging my character in your latest kind reply.
