I agree with H/T: VLAD, none of them are ”refugees”,
“They are in fact people claiming to be refugees, this much is established fact. It is also fact that none of them are, as none of them meet any definition of a refugee, as even if they are who they say they are, and even if they are from a zone officially declared to be a source of refugees, they are obliged to register in the first safe place they land and that, for nearly all of them, is Turkey, and for a few its Greece)”
But police said no such thing, with the Associated Press clarifying the statement from Bremer, who has clarified: “the overwhelming majority of persons fall into the general category of refugees.”
The papers are thought to have made the error because they do not understand the migrant crisis – thinking that only Syrians and Iraqis count as migrants or refugees, when an overwhelming number of Algerians and Moroccans had been named amongst the Cologne suspects.
Left Media Migrant Rape Cover-Up: HuffPo, Indy, AND United Nations Claim Cologne Attackers ‘Not Refugees’, German Prosecutor: ‘Total Nonsense’
Mainstream media outlets have been blasted for peddling “total nonsense” today as left-wing newspapers coalesced to claim with one voice that “only three” of the suspects involved in Cologne’s mass migrant rape on New Year’s Eve were recent migrants or refugees.
But Cologne’s prosecutor, Ulrich Bremer, has said that the claim is “total nonsense” after an interview with German paper Die Welt this weekend was misinterpreted and reported in a way that the left-wing outlets wanted, rather than what the truth was.
The Huffington Post, the Independent, theMetro, and Russia Today all jumped on clumsy reporting from liberal outlets on the European continent, going so far as to heavily editorialise their news copy on the issue.
The Huffington Post claimed: “two Syrians and one Iraqi had been detained by police as part of their inquiries, contrary to the hysteria caused by headlines which accused hordes of refugees of masterminding the assault,” while the Independent, which recently announced it was going “online only” due to a slump in newspaper sales, exclaimed: “Majority of suspects are of Algerian, Tunisian or Moroccan descent and none had recently arrived in Germany, police have reportedly said”.
