UN Secretary-General advocates censorship

Ban Ki-moon cannot limit himself to a negative review:

I condemn, in the strongest terms, the airing of Geert Wilders’ offensively anti-Islamic film.  There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence.  The right of free expression is not at stake here.  I acknowledge the efforts of the Government of the Netherlands to stop the broadcast of this film, and appeal for calm to those understandably offended by it.  Freedom must always be accompanied by social responsibility.

(Via LGF.) 

Oh, the right of free expression is not at stake here?  Never mind then.
