Saddam's cartoon torture

Saddam's cartoon torture

By SARA NATHAM TV Editor TOPPLED dictator Saddam Hussein is being tormented in jail – by being forced to watch HIMSELF in South Park.

The evil tyrant is portrayed in the movie version of the cult cartoon as the Devil’s gay lover.

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut was banned in Iraq on its launch in 1999 for showing Saddam as a homosexual.

The film featured him trying to take over the world with Satan.

He is currently behind bars in Iraq as he stands trial on charges of genocide.

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone yesterday revealed Saddam is made to watch the movie “repeatedly” by the US Marines guarding him.

Speaking at Edinburgh TV Festival, Matt said: “I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed him the movie.

“That’s really adding insult to injury. I bet that made him really happy.”

The American animators also confirmed that Tom Cruise threatened to pull out of all publicity for Mission Impossible III unless Paramount, which also makes South Park, axed a repeat showing of an episode lampooning him.

It showed a Scientologist character called Tom Cruise struggling to come out as gay. Cruise was dumped by Paramount last week.

I don't hate South Park at all. Perhaps they should force Saddam to watch The View.

Because Matt and Trey don't claim to be conservatives.

It's just that they hate liberals much more than they hate conservatives.

I honestly can't think of a better psy-ops way of breaking someone than this.

Watch it be decried as inhumane or some other namby pamby liberal whinefest. I expect Human Rights Watch or Amnesty International to come to Saddam's defense any minute now.

The DemocRATS and their NY Slimes aren't going to like this. This is "torture." Red Ted Kennedy will probably go on a two week drunk when he learns of this.

Too bad Matt and Trey never released an unrated and extended version of BLU.

They could have shown Saddam a picture of himself with panties on his head.

BTW, the Emmy's just spoofed Tom Cruise in the closet during the opening sequence, and the crowd loved it.

Conan found himself trapped in various shows (Lost, 24, House, The Office), and he runs into Stan's room and into the closet. Then he jumps out "Someone else is in there!!!" And TC pops his head out of the closet.

Funny stuff.

Rumblings that something big and not good is gonna happen to $cientology in the next week or so...

Whenever you have a cross section of people some are going to like it, some are go hate it. Me? I love SP, I think it is one of the most creative shows going and they poke fun at everyone!

My favorite is stil the one about NAMBLA, you know the North American Marlon Brando Look-a-likes.

FreeRepublic is a big tent that encompasses a larger politcal spectrum than Dems would like to admit.

South Park's creators are Libertarians. Other Libertarians seem to love them, at the other end of the spectrum are Fundamentalist Christians who are justifiably offended by South Park.

There's a lot of in between.

Here's a picture of me in South Park, Colorado.

That's not what happens. Geez. Tom is in the closet and they're trying to get him out. This reporter substituted the innuendo for the actual plot.

I didn't see any of those who were nominated, so I'm really no judge.

I once read an interview with the sysadmin for the movie. Apparently some really bad stuff got cut that may find its way into a DVD extra, but there's no way they'd ever release some of the other stuff they did.
