I think you guys misunderstand this whole thing on a fundamental level.

It's not illegal to have or express controversial opinions. You're just not allowed to openly call for or incite violence or hatred against a national/religious/ethnic group. I mean, we still got the NPD, a Neo-Nazi party, so we're really not oppressing asshole opinions.

For example, you can totally say that Arabs or Muslims are badly integrated into society and are a problem. But you are not allowed to openly call or rally people into cracking their skulls or burning down Mosques or something like that.

I agree that because of a rather abstract definition of "hatred" the law can be quite blurry in it's application, but ultimately it does more good than harm.

Oh, and by the way: this law actually dates back way to 1871 when the German Empire was founded.

We could just condescend the shit out of each other. You know how many ways I can type 'lol' into this post box? That is how we assert our dominance.

Smokes. Though on second thought it's probably something about Muslims and Refugees because that's kind of his thing.

More like Germans invading other people's lands, so not remaining in their own lands, because they are Germans.

Dammit. World War reference was my second guess.

Also not remaining in our own lands because wars works in two ways. Gib Königsberg back!

It still amazes me so many of you folks know English as well as your native languages. If I was a German, English would just be a bunch of gobbledygook to me, like the adults in a Charlie Brown movie.

When I was still a kid and didn't speak English I had real problems grasping the concept of another language. I remember when I asked my father about this.

"When they (Americans) speak English, do they hear it as German?"

"No."

"But then how do they understand it?!"

I think the only foreigners people actually want to come here are Germans and Americans. Germans are seen as Order and 'murica nuff said.

Huh, and I thought me not being sure if the world is black and white or in colour when I was a kid was weird.

I used to laugh whenever I heard the word "question" because, to me, it sounded like "Würstschen."

That was uncalled for, as I certainly didn't imply "brainwashing" or anything of sort. (Although implying that any given political entity that is worth anything and which actively pursues its own interests doesn't have certain policies regarding information distributed to the populace would not be wise as well. Hey, it's how things always worked, everywhere, with or without alternative opinions allowed in the media.) It's more about uneducated, and indeed rather ignorant assumptions being presented with a sort of naive candor.

But if you just prefer ridiculing others -- fine, no offense taken.

Just so we're clear, Elsass is not going anywhere.
I have family there and I will not see them put through learning German.
