Han Solo, why is South Park worried about angering Muslims but not Christians?
Mr. Solo: “Because Droids don’t rip people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookies have been known to do that.”
Conservatives across the country have been dismayed by South Park’s decision to placate Islamist demands that South Park not portray Mohammed on the show. In the past, South Park has had no difficulty insulting other religions and deities. So what is the difference here? Apparently, the producers of South Park do not want to have their arms ripped out of their sockets, or worse.
One needs only to compare the Christian reaction to secular disrespect with the Radical Islamist reaction, in order to see that the producers of South Park, while hypocritical, may be only applying common sense to a real threat.

The Left cannot protect us from Radical Islam. The Leftists in the United States and Europe only know how to do one thing in the face of demands from Radical Islamists, capitulate. While they tell Christians they cannot pray in school, Leftists are all too willing to purchase prayer rugs. While the Left mocks Christ, it bows to Radical Islamist sensitivities concerning Mohamed. I do not believe that the Leftists or the producers of South Park are acting out of an ideological solidarity with Islam. At the end of the day, I believe they have accepted C3PO’s advice. “Next time, let the Wookie win.”
