92% of Arrested Left-Wing Protesters Live with their Parents

I think we all knew this, right?

The vast majority of left-wing protesters arrested on suspicion of politically-fuelled offences in Berlin are young men who live with their parents, a new report found.

The figures, which were published in daily newspaper Bild revealed that 873 suspects were investigated by authorities between 2003 and 2013.

Of these 84 per cent were men, and 72 per cent were aged between 18 and 29.


A third of them were unemployed, and 92 per cent still live with their parents.

    Shows a stunning lack of parenting and teaching proper Christian values.

    Breaking news, jjf proves himself irrelevant!  Again!

    OK, Jason, you look at the AR-toting crowds in WI and tell me their gender and where they live.

  4. Mar

    Kind of tells you why Germany is a such a weak country.

  5. jjf

    Mar, where’s the weakness?

  6. Mar

    Gee, I don’t know jjf. Lost 2 World Wars, don’t have a powerful military, we are still in their country militarily, let illegal immigrants overrun them, only have only the 2nd best soccer league in the world.

  7. jjf

    Mar, let’s focus.  What does this story “kind of tells you” why Germany is “a weak country.”

    Was the USA “weak” for letting the Soviets fight the Germans?  And soccer, really?

  8. Mar

    You do know what a world war is,jjf?

  9. jjf

    Again, I’m trying to understand why you think “weak” applies here, and where.

    Is the USA “weak” for losing the Vietnam War?

    I am kind of looking for more clarity on the weakness of Germans too, Mar.  How many other countries could take the rest of the world to the limits that the Germans did…twice.

    They were not allowed a military by treaty after the first war and they were split down the middle by the victors after the second world war.  Doesn’t sound that weak to me.

    Today, without the German economy, the EU would have already fallen apart.  And defining ‘second best’ as weak means everyone else in the world is by that definition weaker.  The US is pathetically weak, eh?


  11. Tuerqas

    Of course, I am still trying to figure out how jjf’s article proves anything irrelevant.  The article states that in the larger cities (where all the protests happen) only about 45% of young men live with their parents.  So the fact that 92% of the protesters all came from the 45% that live at home…Well, it seems like the statement is relevant to me.

    I don’t know why that correlation is so foreign to you.  Civil protesters have been historically pulled from the people without jobs.  They are the ones most feeling the pressure, have the most desire and most importantly, the time to invest in the endeavor.  Organize a rally on any normal work day and your attendance is going to predominantly be people without jobs.  It shouldn’t be a point of shame in the first place.

    Tuerqas, Germany invaded weak countries and list to strong ones. They allowed Hitler to rule them even with all the atrocities going on. They allowed a wall to be built in Berlin and it stood for decades.
    They have a weak military. Other than soccer, they pretty much in sports.
    They allowed in too many illegal immigrants into their country and now are facing the consequences.
    They cancelled Oktoberfest. That is a good enough reason by itself.

  13. Tuerqas

    They have a weak military because they have been given economic benefits to stay weak.  Why is that?  It is because the rest of the world still feels a little weak in the knees thinking of Germany as a military power again.

    A relatively small proportion of Germans knew the truth of most Nazi atrocities.  They believed their Government news…hey just like libs believe CNN and the Clinton lying machine, and Republicans believe Fox and every word of an historical liar like Trump.

    They had surrendered to a massively superior force within their borders and the wall was built without their consent.  So if your argument partially hinges on that they invaded ‘weak countries’, what does that say about the US and the USSR divvying up the German spoils after making them helplessly weak?  In fact, when Germany invaded the early ‘weak countries’ the rest of the world trembled and were happy it wasn’t them yet.   No one fought against them because they did not want to be next, until it was clear Germany wasn’t going to stop, ever.  I would contend that as a super power of the day, it took the other two super powers to contain, and finally beat them.  Russia would not have survived Germany, the rest of Europe had already fallen to them except for a British thread…weak?

    Not really sure about your hang up with sports, but the entire EU really only values soccer, so again, second in the world doesn’t seem that weak.

    They did allow too many immigrants , and they are still the economic power in the EU.

    The only one with merit is cancelling Oktoberfest, which may indeed be reason enough, I guess.
