Kyle’s Censored Speech From Mohammed South Park Episode Restored

Via the two redditors and the A.V. Club comes Kyle’s restored speech from the end of South Park episode 201 satirizing censorship that Comedy Central cowardly censored for fear of reprisals by Muslim extremists. Below is the video. SouthParkStudios.com, the official site for streaming South Park episodes, does not have episodes 200 or 201 up. It looks like it’s out of protest that the only version they would be allowed to stream is the one censored in ways they are angry about. You can find the episode 201 restored substantially but not completely here. Below is the restored clip from the ending providing the moral learned in the episode.

Transcript:

KYLE: That’s because there is no goo, Mr. Cruise. You see, I learned something today. Throughout this whole ordeal, we’ve all wanted to show things that we weren’t allowed to show, but it wasn’t because of some magic goo. It was because of the magical power of threatening people with violence. That’s obviously the only true power. If there’s anything we’ve all learned, it’s that terrorizing people works.
JESUS: That’s right. Don’t you see, gingers, if you don’t want to be made fun of anymore, all you need are guns and bombs to get people to stop.
SANTA: That’s right, friends. All you need to do is instill fear and be willing to hurt people and you can get whatever you want. The only true power is violence.
