No they don't in continental Europe and certainly not in Germany. Say that loud in the presence of Germans and you are blacklisted for life in their memory. You don't have to care, but any German will care. A lot.
You are confusing their right with the law.

Everybody has a right to free speech.

Some countries chose to ignore that right.

Police did say it was migrants. Then retracted. Sweden's recent record of covering up of sexual assault by migrants coupled with the fact there is a long history of these festivals going ahead without incident, add to that the manner in which the assault's took place and it doesn't take Tosh Lyons to work out what happened.
Well, we cannot blame migrants until it is 900% proven beyond all doubt that migrants were indeed to blame. In the meantime politicians are excused from taking any action.

You confuse your definition of free speech with the legal definition in said countries. You don't have to agree.

Good idea to take away your last sentence.

Actually, even in Germany you can say what you want. You just can't say it publically. This is a big difference and there have been trials that affirmed this.

You like that don't you?

It gives you pleasure to threaten people and make them take away things they said.

Yeah, it's not Minority reports, we all got that a long time ago... playing with words is fun isn't it? I did not make fun of your fallacy about right vs. law, I am a nice person.

Fact is, Germans will report any nazi speech heard anywhere anytime. It be just to inform the police whom to watch. You can call that antidemocratic but if you think it is not a good idea to fight nazis, just don't go to Germany, you can defend their rights somewhere else.

I think you are extrapolating from yourself to the entire German population.

Most Germans do not get a kick out of spying on their neighbours and informing the police.

In fact many Germans are aware of the role snitches played in their recent history, and don't want to go down that road again.

And exactly where is the word "migrant" mentioned? They are not the only people who do this sort of thing you know.

Quite correct.

So what/who do you suppose is the cause of the escalation of attacks on women these days?

Or is society just blaming it all on those nice young chaps from Africa and Middle Eastern countries? (the ones who "fled for their lives" and having left their women behind, and now suffering from "sexual emergencies"). Scapegoats for the sudden onslaught of lustiness in the local men?

Re: Arab gang assaults in Germany

This sort of incident is becoming more common throughout the music festival industry in all countries.

http://nymag.com/thecut/2015/08/rape...festivals.html

Police, organisers, etc, have to take responsibility and make sure the matter is taken seriously. That doesn't mean that all rapes/assaults are done by migrants.

Perhaps it would be better if men learnt not to drink themselves stupid and kept their hands and other body parts away from other people. It's not rocket science and you don't have to be pissed to have a good time folks. And that goes for the druggies out there too.

I can accept all the other conditions but that line in bold is going a bit far.

Not me or anyone else I know. Guess our lives are different. But then none of us are drinkers. The occasional tipple is about it.

Don't forget alot of the migrants are coming from strict Muslim cultures where women are required to cover themselves almost completely when going out in public. For them to suddenly be exposed to half dressed women must be a complete shock to them, so to take the radical left-wing point of view, when they sexually assault/rape some half-dressed women it's not really their fault, it's our (EU countries) fault for not better integrating them into our society/culture Then consider 80% of all the migrants are male...

They don't come from the 18th century. They see movies, have Internet, etc.

Those who commit such crimes are in the known of doing something wrong. The difference is they used to get away with it back in their countries.

Either that, or they think Germany is soft and that they can get away with more. The slow reaction of the authorities, the fact that so few were arrested, the high level of apologism of large chunks of the establishment, and the very lenient sentencing would appear to confirm that and only encourage more.

That's what comes of using fear to repress people into obeying the rules rather than teaching them to understand why you don't do that.

Believe me, they know what they are doing is wrong. They do it because they always got away. I hope there will be strong consequences.

Gang rapes happen everywhere. Most of them wouldn't do it alone but there is this group ambiance that makes many believe that they are not doing wrong as they aren't alone. It's the: but everyone was doing it!

A Swedish feminist politician tweeted that its a lot worse when a a white man commits a sexual assault as they should know better, and should be punished harshly. Whereas someone from such a culture may not know better, and deserves leniency. :roll eyes:

This is what regressive Leftists believe. It's part of their idea of a cultural enrichment program coming to a town near you. It sets such a low bar for the "inferior" ones. Utter disrespect for everybody all around.

Treating them like children ain't not going to help them take responsibilities of their actions. They move here, they are under the same laws than everyone else. Basta!
