What do you think of freedom of speech in the Netherlands?

Firstly we will give our opinion and then you can react to this and send in your own opinion or idea about this topic.

We think that freedom of speech in the Netherlands should be limited a little bit more, we think that sometimes, for example with Geert Wilders, the border is crossed.
Because of the freedom of speech, people are allowed to say things like the Islam is the enemy and they should go away (which we think is nonsense).
We think this must change and people should be limited in the things they are allowed to say because they can offend people and that badly affects the society.

We are interested in your opinions about freedom of speech in the Netherlands. Should it stay like it is now or do you think that the Netherlands has to make certain rules about where you cross the border in freedom of speech. And if you think that there should be some borders, where should they be placed, do you think?

Con wins b/c pro argued wrong side and con didn't stay on topic, but he didn't affirm, he still technically stuck by his position.

This is a tie because Pro argued the wrong side and Con did not argue at all.

I don't get it. It appears the that the instigator is arguing that freedom of speech should be limited in the Netherlands. If so, shouldn't you be con? Pheonix also raises a good question. Who is we?
