In contrast, the Vice President of the United States frequently says stuff that makes no sense, but nobody cares because it`s just random gibberish. Nobody is offended because it`s not true.

What gets you in trouble is when you point out that the emperor has no clothes. As Fox and Tiger pointed out, Hans Christian Anderson was all wrong: the crowd wouldn`t laugh at the naked emperor, they`d get really, really mad at the little boy who said it.

`Immigrants are making our country dumber`: Anger as board member of Germany`s central bank cites `ample statistics`

By Allan Hall

A controversial board member of Bundesbank has come under fire for claiming immigrants are making Germany �dumber in a simple way’.

Thilo Sarrazin told a business group in Frankfurt that people arriving in the country from Turkey, the Middle East and Africa are less educated than those from other nations.

The 65-year-old added: �There’s a difference in the reproduction of population groups with varying intelligence.’

In his speech this week, Mr Sarrazin, a former finance minister, cited what he called �ample statistics’ for proof.

He said the fact that immigrants tend to have more children than Germans - who have the lowest birthrate in Europe - meant this caused �a different propagation of population groups with different intelligence because parents pass their intelligence on to their children’. ...

A spokesman for a Muslim group in Berlin said; �He is a tired old white Christian male full of prejudice and few ideas.’
