    Cause thats not migration
    It is migration, but there's a very important difference. Unlike the savages that have invaded Europe, I actually plan to integrate. I actually respect Russian culture and I'm a civilised human being not an animal. The illegal immigrants and myself are polar opposites.

    Migration is okay so long as you let the right ones in and keep the wrong ones out. Russia does this, whereas Europe just hands their sovereignty over to outlanders on a silver platter. It's disgraceful and betrays the trust and loyalty of the European natives. Russia is a shining example for us all of how a country should be - strong, independent and loyal to it's citizens.

    Germany can deal with the ones against uncontrolled migration

    But they can't deal with the ones who raped and assaulted women in Cologne and Frankfurt.




    Makes total sense.

    It seems the German media is also very careful of criticising Merkel. I am beyond shock at the situation in that country. One would have thought that hindsight would have taught them the importance of liberty and freedom of expression.

    They are so terrified of becoming an authoritarian regime that... they're becoming an authoritarian regime


    Btw, this is another argument for staying in the EU, because this sort of thing will happen in the UK too, whether or not we leave; however, if we stay in the EU, anyone wanting free speech can move somewhere like Finland, France, Austria, which I think are more liberal

    The force confiscated mobile phones, narcotics and weapons.
    ..................Maybe that's why they were raided?????????

    Breitbart is a cancer, and all of these idiots getting up in arms over this would be the first to demand raiding the homes of Muslims (and throwing them out of the country, and then throwing all Muslims out of the country, and then leaving the EU and stopping all immigration) if they posted extremist comments.

    They didn't raid people because they suspected them of having narcotics and weapons illegally; rather, they raided them because of their right wing views.

    "In some of the homes searched police were forced to admit they hadn’t found anything at all, but Redlich justified the raids saying they were maybe, “people who just once expressed their hate-opinion.”

    Police announced that the raids show Germans that they are not as safe online as they might think. They say that anyone who says something xenophobic, spreads hate toward migrants, or shares what they consider to be xenophobic music, may be next on the list of apartments to be raided in the future."

    According to this cancerous news outlet with a very blatant agenda. They even contradicted themselves (you quoted it).

    That was not a cause of the raids; the confiscation was a mere consequence.

    Why? Because their views are not part of the mainstream?

    Far too presumptuous.

    Did you bother to look at their sources? Here's the German source they reference:

    http://www.morgenpost.de/berlin/arti...in-Berlin.html

    Translated:
    After right incitement on the Internet, police have searched homes in Berlin. The message: The Internet is not a legal vacuum.

    With a raid the Berlin police has taken action against hate speech on the Internet. The officers ransacked on Wednesday ten apartments among others in Marzahn, Hellersdorf, Pankow Tempelhof and Spandau. They posted on Facebook, via WhatsApp and Twitter against refugees, their assistants, but also posted anti-Semitic slogans. According to police, a part of the accused already identifiable with right-wing extremist background. "The men, however, have not known each other according to previous findings," said police spokesman Stefan Redlich.

    For some of the people whose homes had been searched, the police have so far had no findings. "That's partly also people who just once expressed their hate-opinion," said Redlich. Anti-Semitic remarks such as "off to Auschwitz with you" were reasons for some raids.
