Debating with lefties is kind of pointless. Any obvious argument is emotionally rejected. Any fact is considered offensive. And they will throw their own so called “facts” like omens that shall not be questioned. Any fact that leftists throw can be looked up upon. One doesn’t have to be very intelligent to unveil the absurdity of it.
In Belgium, one common argument is that Muslims are “just a tiny” minority. Sometimes 5%, sometimes 7 %. “Don’t look around you, look at the stats”… Somehow all the Muslims in Belgium could be hanging around you and all your friends just by weird coincidences.
The NewsPaper “Sud Info” inform us that “only” 781.887 muslims currently live in Belgium. The so called “Expert” explains how he got this number:
« La méthodologie que j’utilise est établie au départ du nombre d’habitants issus de l’immigration et installés en Belgique depuis 1945. Des données qui sont disponibles par nationalité pour chaque commune, province et région de Belgique »
“The methodology I am using is based on the number of inhabitants from immigration and who are living in Belgium since 1945. The datas are available by nationality by district, province and Region of Belgium”
So far it seems legit to me
« Le PEW research centre permet de connaître le nombre de musulmans par nationalité »
“The PEW research center allows us to know the proportion of muslims by nationality”
First mistake. Anyone who has done Statistics 101 knows that in order to correlate samples, sets of data MUST be independent from one another. So far, I don’t see how these 2 set (Immigrants and religion in the country of Origin) are independent from one another. Anyhow, let’s keep going:
« Je reprends également des données d’une étude faite en Allemagne en 2008 auprès de 5.000 habitants qui a évalué leur laïcité. »
“I also take data from a study done in Germany in 2008 that sampled 5000 inhabitants, evaluating their secular view.
I am not even going to comment on this… The next line just trumps everything else:
Le sociologue a enfin effectué des ajustements, notamment sur les personnes qui ont émigré en Belgique et qui sont originaires de pays d’Europe de l’Ouest car il estime que parmi ces dernières, la proportion de musulmans pourrait être surestimée. Enfin, il faut noter que cette méthodologie ne permet pas de prendre en compte les musulmans belges dont les parents, grands-parents ou arrière-grands-parents ne sont pas issus de l’immigration. « Mes calculs sont donc très légèrement sous-estimés », estime Jan Hertogen.
The Sociologist did some adjustments. Notably on immigrants in Belgium but from other Western european nations. Because he thinks that the proportion of Muslims in these countries could likely be over estimated.
Moreover, this methodology does not allow to take into account Muslims of which parents, grand parents or great grand parents are not immigrants. My calculation are then extremely lightly under estimated.
First he makes an assumption that other european countries are not doing their job and just over-reporting their muslim population (without any proof). Nevermind Belgium has the highest Muslim population in Western Europe compared to its population size. Maybe this over estimation is in the 0.9% of Denmark, 1.2% of Sweden, 0.6% of Spain or the 0% in East Germany?
Then he makes the statement that 3rd, 4th and 5th generations of Muslims are not taken into account (and I don’t even see how he included the 2nd generation). This translates into a “Light under estimation”. I know a diploma in social science is not worth much more than toilet paper… but these people are not even aware of exponential functions taught in secondary schools…
Keep in mind, that the Alt-Right still holds people who can read more than just newspaper headlines and who can think rationally. With this level of absurdity, there is no such thing as a “debate”. The line is drawn between “the capable” and the “mentally retarded”. This is why they refuse debating the Alt-Right. This is why all those cucks, soy-boys and traitors never talk to anybody who sits on the right of them.
