    "People" is a plural of "person", but it is sometimes correct to refer to "peoples".

    I can't find any evidence to support this use for "media", however.

    You clearly should've done more essay subjects, because you've got no clue about source reliability.

    Breitbart is one of the most biased, unreliable, far-right sympathising websites out there.

    You're no doubt going to whinge and cry about how its a police crime statistic, but this far-right website is using misleading figures.

    402,000 foreigners law violations were recorded, this is all forms of crime, and includes the immigration laws broken by illegal immigrants. The total number of crimes in Germany was 6,300,000. So these immigrants account for just 6.3% of all crimes committed in Germany in 2015.

    Its also noteworthy that Breitbart completely ignores the fact that hate attacks on refugee camps increased by 518% from 2014 to 2015. ie 199 attacks to 1031.

    Learn to use sources properly buddy

    So, the illegal immigrants accounted for around 1% of Germany's population, and yet they were responsible for over 6% of crimes. Kind of proves my point about them having a much higher crime rate than the native German population, no?

    And at least I provide sources. Where are yours?

    assuming that the far-right source is correct and hasn't pulled any more strings to promote its hateful agenda, but I wouldn't expect you to understand, your interpretation of media bias and source reliability is pretty weak, you had the same issue with the FPO yesterday

    joke around all you want, but we both know its because you can't defend a discriminatory argument on the basis that less than 1% of those you're discriminating actually deserve it

    You are full of ad-hominems; are the statistics correct or not?

    You referring to this thread? http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...2#post67437732 The source is the Austrian Ministry of the Interior, acting on a request by the FPO (which apparently invalidates the statistics).

    Same here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...2#post67437732 The source is the Austrian Ministry of the Interior, which isn't good enough for our A-level history? student.
    I didn't do A-level history and I finished A2s, so your little whinge about ad-hominem can be thrown right back at you.

    And I have no reason to wonder why you're so hateful towards immigrants when you've got no concept of source bias, I bet you believe every word of the daily mail and co.

    No; I despise them for publishing psuedoscientific articles, and their obsession with celebrities.

    However, I get my news off of Reddit (/r/WorldNews), which sometimes links to DM articles (because many other news sources self-censor controversial topics). And I believe statistics, when they are provided by the governments of Germany, Austria, and other Western nations.

    That's Germany choice they are a rich country and they can afford to look after the refugees. However, if it was the UK who was spending so much on refugees then I would be expecting an uprising because there are so many homeless and people relying on food banks

    Not all Germans are rich; in fact, they didn't even have a minimum wage until recently, and wages stagnated while they tried to sort out East Germany.

    Very little people realize this actually.
    Murdering people for drawing some caricatures is much simplier case, than political (failed) agendas.

    The westerners don't know what are they supporting. The muslims probably do, murder for opinion is far simplier to recognize.
    Oh I see- your excuse is ignorance. Much intelligence, Wow.

    The Westerners know exactly what they are supporting. Western funding of terrorism in the Muslim world as well regime change in favour of brutal dictators has been an ongoing and open policy since the end of WW2.

    Being dumb isn't an excuse for mass murder, colonialism and exploitation.

    Yes, religion plays a role but the primary reason for the rise of Islamic extremism is Western foreign policy.

    So it's Britain's responsibility to be the US's dog and help ruin countries around the world but when it comes to taking responsibility for their crimes, oh no! We have too many "poor" people to take in a few thousand more.

    You are claiming that the main reason Moslems are using literal interpretations of the Koran (or, in fact, returning to Mohammedan intentions) is that some politicians in the west are forcing or encouraging them to make those interpretations. There is no sense or logic in that. Have you any evidence for that claim?

    If western foreign policy changed, are you claiming that these people would somehow be persuaded that their interpretations are incorrect and they would revert to more popular interpretations?

    You do realise that the situation in Syria is caused by a spontaneous insurrection by Moslems against an oppressive regime? Where do you stand? Perhaps you would prefer your Moslem brothers to knuckle down and continue putting up with the Assads.

    Of course they don't. Otherwise political campaigns would look differently, as well as most of political statements on foreign policy.
    You know whats going on, I know whats going on, but average voter doesn't.

    Sure it isn't. But I bet you would feel much safer having dinner with some dumb blondie, or some nice idiot Jeff who thinks that all America wants is freedom for people around the world, than while meeting a muslim who feels sympathy towards guys who shot a group of people, only because they had draw a caricature of some person who lived in medieval times, had not very best morality for modern standards and the story says that this person flew to heaven on flying horse.

    You inisist on claiming that ignorance is the same as sympathy to people who murder others because they have different opinion, and morover, those murderer's opinions lack any evidence to support it.
    Sorry, I don't agree with it, and don't jump on my intelligence if you don't wish me to jump on yours.

    Even the far right sources can be right on something, right? If the Daily Mail reported smoking increases lung cancer, I'm not going to see it as my duty as a liberal to begin chain smoking.

    And even if Breitbart was posting pure unrefined BS, what about the Reuters article, are they far right too? No, but you immediately jumped to accusing the OP of making out immigrants and Muslims to be criminals.
