    UN chief says anti-Islam film 'disgraceful, shameless'

    [​IMG]

    ...Calling freedom of expression and assembly "inalienable" rights, Mr Ban said on Wednesday that they "must be guaranteed and protected when they are used for common justice, common purpose."

    "When some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others' values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected in such a way," Mr Ban added, speaking to reporters at the UN headquarters in New York...


    The real shameless disgrace here—aside from the Islamic campaign of murder and destruction that has now spread to at least 20 countries as a result of the anti-Islam film—is this highlighted travesty of reason on the part of the UN chief. Curtailing the freedom of expression to safeguard against emotional offense is nothing short of eviscerating the core of the principle itself.

    The freedom of expression concerns the right of filmmakers to produce an offensive film as much as it concerns the right of viewers to witness it. The further out an opinion rests on the fringe of consensus, the more important its protection becomes. If we are going to constrain our freedom of expression from breaching into areas of offense, then we must designate one or more human beings to define and outline those areas of censorship. This is to say that we must endow someone or some group with the authority to control what we can say or write and, by direct consequence, what we can hear or read.

    I don't know about you, but I am at a loss for providing nominees.

    This guy and offended Muslins might as well get over it. The legal right to express an idea is not going away. If it is offensive, don't freaking watch it. These people are idiots.

    I find it offensive the way a very large part of the Muslin world celebrated the attack on this country in 2001. I did not go out and start killing people because of it.

    What exactly are they supposed to say though when many Islamic nations are part of the UN? The UN also walks the political correctness beat.

    You guys are funny.

    "Islamists need to deal with it!"

    "Westboro is protesting again? Someone needs to shoot them!"

    LOL and picking and choosing with the first amendment.

    Hey I don't like them but they are allowed to say what they want, that's why I love it when people wall off their protests. Heck even the Westboro church people arn't killing others in the name of their profit. Muslims can protest yeall and scream but they can't kill, loot, and burn the city down over a movie. UN is not our friend.

    So stupid.... Pretty much the movie is a "Hot Shots" style movie about the Islamic religion and the so called profit Muhammad.

    Im so glad we live in a country where a movie like this can be made. The Islamic world, and everyone that is trying to be so politically correct needs to get a life, and move on.

    I see a lot of censorship in our future... or maybe I should say "attempted censorship". The internet would be the primary target as it's the only source viewable from any computer worldwide and our government has absolutely no control over it right now, but we know for a fact they are working on it! There's going to be some serious blowback the day that happens.

    yet it's ok for the Islamowhacks to call everyone who doesn't believe in the Islamic religion "Infidels" who will be put to death one at a time. :bored:

    We should start an SVTP Muhammed/Mohammed/Muhammad/Mohammad comic strip. A new funny every day!

    I figure that in about 10 years all the able-bodied Muslims will have killed each other, eliminating the need for war!

    I'm deeply offended by the flag burnings. I can't wait to sign for another 12 months overseas and make more big profits doing what I do best.

    Oh and thank you Islamic fundamentalists, I owe my new Boss to you :beer:

    Allah Akbar. Baka Bazi.
