Most cultures are already very diverse with a range of social classes, ethnicities, professions, religions and lifestyles. In free nations we don't use the law to oppress hippies, blue collar workers, religious sects etc. With all that legally and popularly accepted diversity there is no legitimate reason to suppress some specific forms of cultural expression just because they are practiced by immigrants. If we were successful at doing that in the USA we wouldn't have St. Patrick's day, pasta, pizza, tacos, hamburgers, egg rolls, etc.
    Yes but shooting satirists for expressing their cultural freedoms is very different from St. Patrick's day, pasta, pizza, tacos, hamburgers, egg rolls etc etc.

    I can understand why Germans could worry that fundamental aspects of their culture could be changed because of the cultural demands of a new immigrant group which may see the culture of a society they want to move to as offensive to their own culture.

    Right now, there are cartoonists in the US and Europe who now have to live under 24 hour watch because of this.

    What percent of European Muslims have committed violence due to their beliefs? I feel safe in saying that it is well under 1 pct. That does not justify discrimination against the remaining 99.9 pct.

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    non sequitur.

    Besides, to use your words "percent of Pegida members have committed violence or are racists due to their beliefs? I feel safe in saying that it is well under 1 pct. That does not justify discrimination against the remaining 99.9 pct."

    Even the pics posted in support in the OP only show a handful with neo-nazi group flags however several posters feel confident enough to label the whole movement racist.
