South Park was right!

Good news. South Park's rather ham-fisted pillorying of the main stream media's cowardice when faced with threats from Islam has turned out to be right as a string of newspapers have refused to publish an episode of the comic Opus for fear of offending Muslims. This will come as news to no one. Not for lack of publicity though but because the world I think has divided into two camps on this issue. One camp who simply expects this sort of thing and treats the perpetrators with the contempt and derision they deserve (South Park), and another who thinks this drooly-chinned cowardice (sorry, "respect") is appropriate.

Here's Volokh's take.

And another.
