Cologne Attackers Mostly Refugees

I think we already knew this, didn’t we?

BERLIN (AP) — Most of the suspects identified in connection with a series of robberies and sexual assaults in Cologne during New Year’s celebrations are refugees, prosecutors said Monday.

The crimes, described as unprecedented by authorities, sparked uproar in Germany and a heated debate about the country’s ability to integrate almost 1.1 million people who sought asylum there last year.

Cologne prosecutor Ulrich Bremer said 73 suspects have been identified so far — most of them from North Africa. A total of 1,075 criminal complaints have been filed, including 467 alleging crimes of a sexual nature ranging from insults to rape.

“The overwhelming majority of persons fall into the general category of refugees,” Bremer told The Associated Press, saying recent reports describing only three of the suspects as refugees were “total nonsense.”

    Liberal media trying to cover up the rape and assault of women. Disgusting.

    Where in the article did it say that the media was trying to cover up anything?

    “…saying recent reports describing only three of the suspects as refugees were “total nonsense.””

    Sorry to have to point out the obvious for you.

    Nowhere in the article cited was there a mention of where the “reports” were from. I don’t doubt that there were, and are, erroneous statements made regarding the criminal acts, but kevins knee jerk reaction added nothing to civil discourse.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    “Reports” is simple code for liberal politicians making false claims by a cooperative liberal media willIng to print those false claims.

    In this case, the cover up and minimizing, by liberal politicians, of the rape and assault of poor German women by predatory Muslim migrants from Middle East. I’ve always suspected European liberals were anti-woman.

    It appears predatory migrant rapists trump the feminist agenda in the liberal European lexicon these days.

    Very disappointing.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    Also, I don’t find discourse civil when liberal politicians, fail to discern simple evil like rape, as in this community. Worse, because liberal politicians fail to discern rape as evil, and a problem, cover it up as to not offend the migrant Muslim predators!

    There is nothing “civil” about that.

    However, you call me out, instead, for lack of civility for being against rape and calling it out?

    Oh the liberal trip wires….they are hilarious.

    It may be “simple code” to you, but you have the only copy of the code book. Much of what you have to say are thinly veiled slams on anyone that disagrees with you, or offers an opportunity to take a dig at “liberals”, however you are defining them this week. You are making stuff up again.

    Gaslighting and bullying. Please ban Old Baldy.

  10. old baldy


    Your thin skin and intolerance are showing. Pull up your britches.

  11. Seeker

    More bullying and threats.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    So Muslim migrants are not raping European women in your worldview?

    If yes, the “simple code” is proven.

    If they are raping women en masse, how clueless do you have to be, to discount the bad original liberal reporting on this issue?

  13. old baldy


    Nope, I never said that. You are making stuff up again.


    Never bullied or threatened anybody. But you want me banned for having a different opinion. Classy.

  14. Seeker

    No. You should be banned for ToS violations.

    Pull yourself off your cross and leave.

  15. old baldy


    No cross here, just freedom of speech. Or are you opposed to that as well?

  16. Seeker

    Thank you for proving what a clueless idiot you are.

    This is a private site. Owen is not Congress. He could run your ass out of here and you have not a shred of recourse.

    Stick to your fellow fascists over at Kos and HuffPo.

  17. old baldy


    Class act.

  18. Seeker

    When you pull out a cliche like that, you know you’ve lost. Glad you could man up and admit it.

  19. old baldy


    Since it seems that I cause you a lot of discomfort the inference is that I have hit a nerve. Whether it be that you just don’t like any opinion other than your own, or that maybe you just like calling others names, I don’t know or really care. If Owen wants to ban me, fine. Let him be up front and tell me. But if you think your juvenile name calling and pseudo intimidation (I haven’t been intimidated since basic training in 1970) will do it, not a chance.

    Have a great day, and keep smiling.

  20. Seeker

    That’s a lot of words to say “I lost.”

  21. old baldy


    It was only a contest in your mind. If you want a “win/lose” contest let’s pick something worthwhile. Horse apples at 10 paces? Fastballs at 60’6″ ? Closest to the pin? Biggest walleye?

  22. Seeker

    You lost. You’ve admitted to it, now move on. It’s not healthy for you to obsess over losing.

  23. old baldy


    I lost my hair to genetics, and my heart to my wife, but never anything to you. So no, I didn’t admit it. And you seem to be the one obsessing. You take yourself waaaay too seriously .

  24. Seeker

    When Rhonda Rousey lost, she thought about offing herself. You should go one step further.

    Nobody here would miss you.

  25. old baldy


    You pay way too much attention to a non-sport. What a guy/gal, suggesting suicide. Where are your christian values? But I have lost interest in you and your thin-skinned and intolerant rants against me. Have a nice day.

  26. Seeker

    More trolling, gaslighting and projection.

    Maybe you should off yourself. With the help of Republicans, you can get a gun and do it today.
