Would liberals like to see what a war on women really looks like?
Consider what the BBC had to say about what went on in several German cities on New Year’s Eve:
The mayor of Cologne has summoned police for crisis talks after about 80 women reported sexual assaults and muggings by men on New Year’s Eve.
The scale of the attacks on women at the city’s central railway station has shocked Germany. About 1,000 drunk and aggressive young men were involved.
City police chief Wolfgang Albers called it “a completely new dimension of crime”. The men were of Arab or North African appearance, he said.
Women were also targeted in Hamburg.
But the Cologne assaults – near the city’s iconic cathedral – were the most serious, German media report. At least one woman was raped, and many were groped.
Most of the crimes reported to police were robberies. A volunteer policewoman was among those sexually molested.
Men of “Arab and North African appearance”, eh. Well, I suppose we should be grateful the BBC didn’t call them “youths”. It is believed things will only get worse:
What is particularly disturbing is that the attacks appear to have been organised. Around 1,000 young men arrived in large groups, seemingly with the specific intention of carrying out attacks on women.
Police in Hamburg are now reporting similar incidents on New Year’s Eve in the party area of St Pauli. One politician says this is just the tip of the iceberg.
And there are real concerns about what will happen in February when the drunken street-parties of carnival season kick off.
The $64,000 question is how many of men of “Arab and North African appearance” are “Syrian refugees”?:
A policeman who was outside Cologne station during the New Year’s Eve trouble told the city’s Express news website that he had detained eight suspects. “They were all asylum seekers, carrying copies of their residence certificates,” he said.
However, there was no official confirmation that asylum seekers had been involved in the violence. Commentators in Germany were quick to urge people not to jump to conclusions.
If it is the case that Syrian refugees were involved in these attacks then I frankly don’t expect the German authorities to be forthcoming about it. German Chancellor Angela Merkel put her political prestige on the line by seeing fit to accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees and was named “Person of the Year” by Time Magazine. The German government has tremendous incentive to hide bad publicity stemming from lawless behavior from Syrian refugees.
Even if it turns out that the perpetrators aren’t asylum seekers, this isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happend in Europe. Authorities in Britain who went to great pains to hide abuse of young girls (mostly white between the ages of 13-16) by gangs of Muslims of Pakistani origin (who the British press prefer to describe as “Asian”).
Unfortunately, I don’t think Canada and the U.S. will be immune from this nor do I think that authorities in this country and north of the border will be forthcoming about it either.
Make no mistake. It is a war on women liberals don’t want to talk about.
