    I'll give you his EQ if you give me yours

    I agree with his sentiment, for I know it in greater detail, but I personally wouldn't express myself as he did. Not because I disagree with him, neither because I regarded what he said as obscure or out of place (made perfect sense to me) but because that kind of assertion will wake up the righteous referees to come up with the perfect epithet card for the situation.

    I am not aware of the woman you're talking about ( I only know of Frauke Petry and she's pretty fit to be an old hag) so if you wish to expand that, feel free to do so.
    If I give you mine, I'd much rather have yours than his =)

    If you write on a public forum to shoot people escaping a war zone, then sorry, but how can you be shocked if people take an immediate disliking to you?

    I don't actually remember her name, but Petry herself echoed the sentiments, see here for example: https://meta.tagesschau.de/id/108036...wahres-gesicht

    It caused a minor shitstorm in Germany. Maybe you have different views in the UK, but even if, I find it very hard to believe that you are a moral person if you say such things.

    That should be for the people of Europe to decide not immigrants.

    These people were safe in refugee camps, for which the EU is going to pay €6 billion.

    Gotta love incompetent twits, your* stupidity and delusion is very entertaining.

    Racism is the hatred of a race based only on the fact that it's that race, or of people of that race for being of that race, right?

    So then, how does not caring what race someone is and merely holding the view that the indigenous people should govern their ancestral homelands (because it's THEIR land) instead of foreigners make me a racist?

    Please try harder to come up with an intelligent comment next time.
    Oh pls, keep on going. Closet racists are very entertaining.

    That's not how democracy works you fool, maybe in a fascist government you can believe that.

    If your moral compass doesn't recognize that on its own, nothing I will say will change that.

    And names? I called you a bully (or a troll depending if you are genuine or not). As you said above, that is "neither offensive nor wrong, it was spot on".
    Again all hot air an no substance. You cant just say i am revolted you are a bad person without contesting why... thats not how you win a debate or discussion

    I'm sure that regardless of the language barrier, the "refugees" are just as confused with this sentence as I am because it doesn't make any sense

    What i think you're trying to say is, let's keep them out because their fellow nationals are violent beasts and you worry for the safety of these refugees...which I doubt, stop the rubbish.
    Wow reading comprehension fail. What my post says for the intellectually challenged is

    When poor people see fellow poor people from their countries embarking on a journey and gaining access to Germany and all of her incredible privileges ( First world house, healthcare, education, welfare/job that pays 25x what they earn currently... It makes them want to do the same which means paying smugglers money and making the dangerous journey on a dinghy across open water with inevitable deaths

    I that is too difficult for you to comprehend i will help you further.

    Germany = Pot of Honey - Most of the world - Very hungry bumble bee's -

    Bumble bee's successfully being allowed access to the pot of honey = Millions more very hungry bumble bee's embarking on the same journey which = Many more bumble bee's dying and evil greedy wasps profiteering from it.

    I much prefer that i and whomever come to some sort of understanding, one or maybe both of us less ignorant than we were before the start.

    Making empty sanctimonious posts like "If your moral compass is so bad im not even gona try explaining it to you" really grinds my gears and leaves me with a sense that you feel some sort of victory or superiority when the reality is anything but

    I wonder what you might do, if your country is being shredded to pieces, your family and friends killed, and you are stuck in a mass refugee camp with absolutely jack of a future.

    Sure you wouldn't want to go to a country with opportunities for you?

    Empathy, try and get some.

    That is too funny, that other guy I was debating with all day did exactly that.

    Victory no, superiority, yes if you want. But as I said in the post above, it's not hard to feel "superior" morally to someone that lacks empathy.

    I have an abundance of empathy, its probably my strongest character trait (If it is a character trait?) - Its why i understand that one does not need to be at risk from death to make a dangerous journey to Europe

    I think it is you who lacks empathy and understanding for economic migrants not caught up in civil war.

    Of course i woud want to go to Germany if i was these people... it doesnt mean that we should allow or encourage it. Especially when so many die doing so..

    Do you like seeing these people drown in the med? Remove the pot of gold, support refugee camps and people will stop drowning in the Med

    Let them drown, they will soon stop coming if they know no one will save them. The ones that do make it turn them back or send them to Dubai I hear the worlds tallest building is still not all used up there will be plenty of space.

    I don't think you have the first clue of what is going on in Germany...

    Read up about so-called safe countries of origin and what that means for your asylum application in Germany. And then before you say "but fake passports", read about how the process actually works.

    Maybe then you will have an understanding.

    The way you talk about the whole issue, reeks off regurgitation of the fear-mongering that all the people coming are economics migrants rather than refugees. And that they are all accepted in Germany and that they all follow Angie's call.

    That is not true.

    So I ask you again, can you tell me the process of asylum seeking in Germany? Have you googled it in the meantime so you can say you knew it all along? Because if you don't, don't you think it's a bit presumptuous to be talking as an authority about the subject the way you are?
