No, I did not bother viewing it when you cannot be bothered to even try to make some sort of relevant comment?
Newsflash: lefties do not accept the contradictory. If you don't think like them, you are labeled ignorant, intolerant, racist, misogynist, homophobic, etc. They also refuse to read conservative writers, demonize artists that came out against mass migration and pro-life, etc.

If you were really concerned about newsflashes, you'd have seen the story in question being reported numerous times across the media over the last month, including Washington Post, France 24, Financial Times, Deutsche Welle, BBC News, etc...etc...etc... Even Fox reported it on 27 June.

Somebody doesn't read Reuters. The story is a month old.

...or 12 minutes of your life that you'll never get back. Good job that we have the freedom to decide.
Are you saying you read every article on every news site ? You're quite the card!

Because of course "righties" are so much more rounded in their worldview, educating themselves about all points of view. That's a well-known fact.

It's sooo refreshing to finally see someone refrain from stereotyping and assigning all kinds of characteristics at will. Especially when they NEVER apply to the poster or his group.

Not at all. You're being deliberately obtuse now.

As I've said many, many times (to the point of boredom), I read Reuters, Sky News and NewsNow.co.uk mostly, and have travel alerts sent to my phone from the first two. As this happened in a tourist location, it pinged up on my phone a month ago.

A simple google search shows which other news outlets reported this story. Or you can search NewsNow.co.uk for the story and get a list of links to all the news sites that reported it in date order, with links to the articles, and you can also search by the language the article was printed in, country, etc.

In what sense is your post "correct" ? Capo's post was of a video directly related to migrant abuse. Your post is an admission of your own laziness to find out the underlying content , deliberate ignorance and topped off with an ad hominem.
The onus is on the poster.

Not sure if it's an outright rule but the poster is definitely expected to post a synopsis, especially when the source is lengthy, not a text, or in a language other than English.

At best that is a contradiction in terms.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

"Unprecedented" violence as migrants storm Cueta (Spain) :

Quote:
A Red Cross emergency team treated more than 130 people for injuries, the NGO said in a statement. The ten Guardia Civil officers were hospitalised after having been sprayed with “some type of acid, lime or white liquid” and received treatment for burns, respiratory and cognitive issues, but were later discharged. Two of the migrants required surgery for "deep cuts", while others were discharged after treatment for cuts and fractures.

The 602 migrants who ultimately made their way onto Spanish soil have been taken into Ceuta’s temporary migrant reception centre, a facility already overflowing with 650 current residents for its 520 places.

It is not the first such incursion across the borders of Ceuta and Melilla, the two Spanish outposts in North Africa which are seen by many fleeing poverty and conflict as their best hope of reaching a new life in Europe.

But it is the first entry of such a magnitude into Ceuta since February 2017, when 850 migrants crossed into the territory in four days. Security forces speaking to Europapress said the level of violence employed in the assault was “unprecedented”.

It also comes as the Spanish system struggles to cope with surging numbers of arrivals. The country is now the largest gateway for migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Europe, with 19,586 people landing on its shores so far this year, according to the International Organisation for Migration.

Such people will undoubtedly make wonderful additions to Europe.

I don't think that word means what you think it means.

It is amusing, however, to see one of Trump's favourite tactics adopted so readily by his followers: accuse your accusers of that of which they accuse you.

Are flamethrowers, flying feces and burning security forces with acid just another way to culturally enrich? Or shall we analyse how unprepared Ceuta cops were? What is the way to deal with the problem now, to avoid being called "insensitive'?

Are you back on that old chestnut. What problem are you talking about? Cultural diversity? Ethnic minorities? Refugees? Islam? Sorry mr Bigot you are mixing a lot of different issues together into one bigoted rant.
