Violent clashes break out across the globe as thousands take to the streets in anti-Islam protests organised by far-right group PEGIDA

Violent scuffles broke out across Europe today as thousands of people taking part in far-right anti-Islam protests clashed with pro-immigration groups and riot control police.

Police in Dresden, Germany, saw about 2,000 protesters at a rally organised by the group Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West, making it the biggest of a coordinated series of demonstrations across European cities.

Known by its German acronym PEGIDA, the group emerged in Dresden two years ago and has become a magnet for far-right and anti-immigrant sentiment.

    It’s not “far right”. It’s hardly even “right”. it’s just people fed up and finally taking action.

    These people are doing the right thing, though I cannot help but wonder if this is what the left has been trying to provoke as an excuse to persecute anyone who dares to stand against their agenda.

      I want to say that don’t provoke this, only bias media coverage. Yet maybe provoke is the correct word considering these are the same people who pray after a shooting that the shooter was white Christian.

      “Provoke” is something you’re guilty of when you let a muslim know that you are not a muslim.

    Riiight, they “clashed with”. I’m going to go out on a limb and make an educated guess that if you replaced those words with “were attacked by”, it would be a much more accurate assessment of the situation.

    To counteract the mainstream media drivel, the truth from Breitbart:

    And an admission of guilt from leftist thugs:

    Pretty soon we’ll all be “far-right”.

    Anti-Islamic hate and hate crimes massively outstrip anti-semitic incidents in EU. These racists will be stamped out.
