It is fascinating that you detect xenophobia only in Germany and only in social networks.
IM's unintentional comedy, again.

DoDO is Hungarian and has criticised Hungarian xenophobia loudly and often.

Your interventions in this thread are an example of not arguing on the merits.

The hallmark of nationalist commentators here is that they only ever register criticism of their own group. You can ridicule and eviscerate every other government, media sphere and people and they'll never notice, but criticise their in-group and they'll complain you're picking on them.

It's always been so.

No, it's an observation. And a flag indicating that there's no real point engaging, the other party is in defence mode and can't hear you.

Do I have to enumerate all the times you have engaged in name-calling and ad-hominem in this thread alone, while accusing others of same?

I think you've done enough to defeat your own cause.
