A year ago (well, slightly more; a year and a few weeks ago) I challenged people on Facebook.
I’m making a statement now and I’m adding it to my calendar. One year from today, I want to come back to the following statement: “These refugees aren’t causing terrorism and crime, they’re running from the people who cause it.”
I will admit I’m wrong that these people aren’t just bringing mayhem along with them and infiltrating Europe… I’ll admit that it isn’t all 18-25 year old men… I’ll admit that they’re just hard working people who want to do the right thing for their families…
But I’ll only admit that after evidence. I wonder how many of the “They’re good people running from a bad situation” will accept the challenge and do the same? I’ll admit I’m wrong and these people aren’t bad news. But would the “They’re good people” crowd be willing to do the same? Publicly?
A year should be enough time to figure out how “good” these people are. Anyone wanna take the challenge? And if so, which side would you like to be on?
Understand that at the time I wrote this, November 14th 2015, things were only just starting to really get crazy with the migrant situation in Europe. Some people, myself included, saw this “crisis” for the sham that it is, while others accused people like myself of being bigots, not caring about people, having no humanity, and so on. Having had about as much of that nonsense as I could stand, I challenged people to re-asses the situation one year later.
Germany was the first country to truly open up to the migrants, and openly welcomed them. Not only that, but they begged over and over for more of them. Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, actively called for more migrants to come, a move which many predicted would be the death of Germany, and while no other European country has taken in as many refugees as Germany, Germany, one year later is in absolute chaos.
It started in Cologne, Germany, during the New Year’s Eve celebrations. Wikipedia summarizes the incident very simply:
During the 2015/2016 New Year’s Eve celebrations, hundreds of sexual assaults (including groping), at least five rapes, and numerous thefts were reported in Germany, mainly in Cologne city centre. Similar incidents were reported in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, and Bielefeld. The German Federal Criminal Police Office said on 9 January that the incidents were a phenomenon known in the Arab World as taharrush gamea in Arabic. Translated as “group sexual harassment in crowds,” it is comparable to criminal acts committed in Cairo’s Tahrir Square during the Egyptian revolution of 2011.
All of the incidents involved women being surrounded and assaulted by groups of men on the street. Police estimate that 1,200 women were sexually assaulted and that at least 2,000 men were involved, acting in groups. Police reported that the perpetrators were men of “Arab or North African appearance” and said that Germany had never experienced such mass sexual assaults before. The attacks sparked an international outcry, a debate about women’s rights, the sustainability of Germany’s asylum policy, and social differences between European societies and those of North Africa and the Middle East. Taking place during the European migrant crisis (see timeline), the attacks also led to a hardening of attitudes against mass immigration.
What’s most troubling about these incidents isn’t that they happened as much as it is that Merkel, the Mayor of Cologne, and others worked feverishly to cover it up to maintain the illusion that the mass migration of thousands upon thousands of refugees had not caused this. In April, news organizations began reporting that there had, in fact, been a concerted effort made to re-tell the story of the assaults.
The translation is rough, here, but it is from a German paper:
EXPRESS now publishes one of the confidential notices. He was written by Cologne Chief of Criminal Investigation Joachim H.
On the New Year’s Day, the policeman had been serving in the Kriminalwache in Cologne. There was a first report on the offenses in the New Year’s Eve night in a “WE message” (WE stands for “Important event”).
“Rape, sexual offense on base, thefts, committed by a larger foreign group of persons” , is about the message.
A message that was to shatter all of Germany. A “sex mob” of this extent had never existed so far.
What then happened is a process that brings the minister of the interior now in more explanation. A memorable call came in at the Kölner Kriminalwache, which, according to the Cologne police, came from the Landesleitstelle.
In a file note, Joachim H. remembers the content of the conversation.
At about 1.30 pm, as part of early morning service on late service, KHK H. made a phone call that he finished shortly after I sat next to him to continue the transfer. KHK H. told me at once that the local authority wanted a reversal of the WE report or the deletion of the formulation rape. According to the local government, this is a wish from the ministry.
The last paragraph is clear. Either “reverse” the report (say it didn’t happen) or keep the report and remove the word “rape.” Down the memory hole it goes.
As shocking as this story is, it’s only one story. People in Germany have been reporting all kinds of inconceivable injustices, not the least of which is their homes being taken so that refugees would have a place to live, and one article on Zero Hedge a few days ago listed off such a shocking list of things in the the past month alone that one has to wonder what in God’s name is going on in Germany?
A few years ago one of my favorite comedians, Jim Norton, said that when it came to the relations between black people and white people in the United States, the sorry state that they’re in is the consequence for the poor behavior of white people in the past. It’s easy to dismiss that as group blaming or some other SJW type thing, but his point was much more nuanced than that: the payback for the horrible treatment of black people in the past (slavery and Jim Crow) have turned somewhat, and some of what white people hate about current race relations is their “comeuppance.”
Whether or not you believe that is happening in the United States notwithstanding, it’s easy to see that that’s exactly what’s happening in Germany. So terrified of being labeled as racists, and so gun shy after Hitler’s ascent to power in the 30’s and 40’s, Germans have come to regard racism as the worst conceivable thing they can be. That fear has driven many Germans to extremes that can’t even be explained.
And the left-leaning loons have a cause…
One German pol, Stefanie von Berg, believes that Germany being a minority white country is a good thing (which wouldn’t be so laughable if Germany wasn’t watching the country dissolve in front of their eyes at the hands of non-white invaders).
Now I’m not for white nationalism any more than I’m for black nationalism or any other nationalism, but when you see your cities crumbling at the hands of migrants from the Middle East, can you really say “that’s a good thing?”
How delusional would you have to be? Or more exactly, how beaten down do you have to be?
Very much so.
Beaten down enough that when you’re raped by a refugee in a camp where you’re volunteering, you keep it quiet because you’re worried about the racist backlash that reporting your rapist would get you. Then, you write an apology letter to your rapist.
Selin, who has visited refugee camps in Iraq where she was shocked at the squalor people are living in, did not want to stoke ‘more hatred against migrants ín Germany.’
To help her cope she wrote an open letter to a fictional refugee and posted it on Facebook. It read in part: ‘I am really sorry that your sexist and line-crossing treatment of me could help fuel aggressive racism.
‘I’m going to scream… I will not stand by and watch, and it can happen that racists and concerned citizens name you as the problem. You’re not the problem. You’re usually a wonderful human being who deserves as much as any other to be safe and free.
‘I will not stand by and watch and let it happen that racists and concerned citizens name you as the problem.’
And, not to be outdone, just a few days ago, a young woman, also a volunteer at a refugee camp, was murdered, and while the path of destruction carved by the “migrants” who were “just good people” trying to “find safety for their family” have mostly gone unblocked, the German people seem to finally be starting to wake up to what’s going on over a year after the invasion began. Of course the only people in the streets are the “far right” which means they can be easily dismissed, and dismissed they are being.
Freiburg – the ancient university city where Maria was studying before her brutal death in October – saw a demonstration yesterday by the hard-right anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
Maria – who died from drowning – was portrayed as ‘the victim of Merkel’s welcome culture’.
AfD co-chief Jörg Meuthen said: ‘We are shocked by this crime and at the same time we see that our warnings about the uncontrolled arrival of hundreds of thousands of young men from Islamic-patriarchal cultures are written off as populist.’
Social media is also burning up with hate messages directed at refugees in the wake of the arrest of a 17-year-old Afghan boy whose DNA has linked him to the murder of Maria, who was the daughter of a high ranking EU legal official.
But just when you think there’s hope…
One lone voice who pointed out Germans were equally capable of such terrible crimes was Julia Klöckner, a politician from Mrs Merkel’s CDU party, who said: ‘Such brutality is unfortunately perpetuated by natives and foreigners. This unfortunately is not a new phenomenon.’
And, even though the media has been sharing the name and face of the perpetrator, one Facebook user in Germany was banned for showing his face and the German government has been repeatedly warning citizens not to cross the line and promote hatred on Facebook or other social media outlets in the wake of the murder.
The statistics are stunning.
But it isn’t just a horror show with the smoke and mirrors the government, led by Merkel, are trying to push on the German people. The actual numbers of what’s happening to Germany as far as crime are the true shame of post-migrant life.
Migrants in Germany have committed 142,500 crimes in just six months, police figures have revealed
This was the equivalent of 780 crimes a day – an increase of nearly 40 percent over 2015, according to data from Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office
It comes as German chancellor Angela Merkel remains under pressure over her open-door policy on immigration amid concerns over how to integrate 900,000 newcomers who arrived last year.
And there’s no reason to think it’s going to get better.
A separate report from late last year by the Federal Criminal Office found that migrants registered as living in Germany committed more than 200,000 crimes over the whole of 2015 with two-thirds involving theft counterfeiting and financial crimes.
According to the Gatestone Institute, an international policy council, police in some parts of the country fear they are being stretched to the limit amid climbing crime figures.
Their report said: ‘During the first six months of 2016, migrants committed 142,500 crimes, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office. This is equivalent to 780 crimes committed by migrants every day, an increase of nearly 40 per cent over 2015. The data includes only those crimes in which a suspect has been caught.
‘Migrant crime statistics for all of 2016, when they become available, are likely to show a significant increase over the 2015 numbers. One reason for this is that thousands of migrants who entered the country as ‘asylum seekers’ or ‘refugees’ have gone missing.’
I’m really trying to find a silver lining here, and I’m failing miserably.
And, as if you need a reminder of the kind of media and governmental programming Europe is dealing with, take a look at this gem…
The EU should “do its best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states, the UN’s special representative for migration has said.
Peter Sutherland told peers the future prosperity of many EU states depended on them becoming multicultural.
He also suggested the UK government’s immigration policy had no basis in international law.
We’ve officially reached peak absurdity. You have European officials clamoring for the death of any distinct cultural identity, and praising it as it’s begged for.
It’s not looking better for 2017.
We’ve already seen a call for “more integration” after a homeless man was set on fire in Berlin, but they don’t mean that migrants need to assimilate better; they mean that Germans need to try harder.
And, in the aftermath of a truck attack (because, in Germany, trucks act alone) on a Berlin Christmas market a few days before Christmas, Angela Merkel on New Year’s Eve 2016 implored people to treat the onslaught of Islamic terror with…
Angela Merkel thinks that you must just keep turning your cheek and begging your attackers to smack you because God forbid you be accused of hate.
It’s hard to see a way forward for Germany. They’re proudly puffing out their chests as they are destroyed from within because of their own self-loathing and self-imposed guilt, and with Angela Merkel’s utter refusal to even admit there is a problem, it’s hard to see it getting any better.
