Fake News: “Ten Attacks per Day on Refugees” Lie Exposed
The controlled media’s claim that there were “ten attacks per day” on “refugees” in Germany during 2016 is utterly false, as a study of the original data reveals that two-thirds of the “offenses” have nothing to do with physical attacks on “refugees,” and that the figures even include at least 156 criminal acts committed by “refugees” themselves.
The story that there were “ten attacks per day” on refugees originated with a self-confessed Marxist politician and member of the Bundestag for Die Linke (“The Left”) party, Ulla Jelpke, in a post on her website.
Die Linke is the direct descendent of the communist SED party which ruled the former East Germany until 1990, and Jelpke serves as that party’s domestic affairs spokesman.
Jelpke wrote on her website that there had been “3,500 reported attacks on refugees and their accommodations” during 2016, producing as evidence for her claim a German Ministry of the Interior report to a parliamentary question she had asked about these “attacks.”
The Interior Ministry report bears absolutely no resemblance to Jelpke’s claims, and in fact proves the complete opposite.
The report lists a total of 3,527 offenses related to “refugees.” These offense categories—41 in total—include “crimes” such as “insult,” “displaying signs from unconstitutional organizations,” and, the single largest offense category, “racial incitement.”
