Oooooh, "South Park" is gonna get it now...LOL.

Where is the federal investigation into "South Park?" That was the question posed this weekend during the Values Voter Summit's panel on “Religious Hostility in America” held in Washington, D.C.

Panelist and Fox News radio commentator Todd Starnes called on the White House to put a stop to Hollywood's constant humiliating of Christians, both in movies and in television shows like the Comedy Central classic which he accused of "denigrating all faiths."

Starnes made the comments as discussion at the Summit turned to the "Innocence of Muslims," the ameteurish short film that is the alleged catalyst behind a slew of deadly protests against American installations in the Middle East. "The big headline this morning is 'federal authorities investigate Christian filmmaker because of this film," Starnes told attendees, according to a video posted on RightWingWatch.org.

"We have the seen the administration come out and say, 'we condemn anyone who denigrates religious faith,' and they come out in regards to this anti-Muslim film," Starnes said. Well, that's well and good, but my question is, when has the administration condemned the anti-Christian films that are coming out of Hollywood?" Where are the federal investigations into shows like ‘South Park?’"

2. The film maker was convicted of bank fraud and released on probation.

He was hauled in for possibly breaking the terms of his probation.

If the makers of South Park commit bank fraud I'm sure they'll receive the same treatment.

4. This will be like waving a red flag in front of a bull.

Matt and Trey and going to make a concerted effort to make them go triple apeshit next season. Bet on it.

6. Ummm, my investigation leads to Matt and Trey...

I also suspect, as the result of my private investigation, that Comedy Central is distributing the work. I do not believe the writers/creators of South Park are using alias', nor do I believe they are actually hiding the funding, distribution, or methods behind their production of said cartoons.

Starnes is an idiot.
