Colgone trainstation

If at least 100 women in Cologne, Germany, are sexually assaulted by gangs of Arab refugees in a single night, and the national media doesn’t report on it, did it ever happen? Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker and Chancellor Angela Merkel act as if the answer is “No.”

Most Americans have not heard about the wave of New Year’s Eve sexual assaults that happened in dear old Deutschland. Luckily, your truly, Herr Ernst, checks out Huffington Post Deutschland, where even self-described feminist Anabel Schunke was shocked that a.) national media refused to report on the Cologne Central Station crimes, and b.) those local stations that were covering the issue refused to describe the suspects.

At least 1,000 men lit firecrackers into crowds, brawled, and sexual assaulted women. Germany’s national media went mute for days.

“The media’s handling of this issue is a slap in the face for every victim,” Schunke said, just days before Mayor Reker told women they should adopt a “code of conduct” to deter future attacks.

Pro-tip from Ms. Reker: Stay “at arm’s length” from groups of men who are trying to gang-rape you. Seriously.

Regular readers of this blog will remember the tale of Sumte, Germany, where officials were told a population of 100 would be forced to accept 750 refugees. They will recollect Benedict Cumberbatch saying “f**k the politicians” in the U.K. and Europe who worried about the sociological ramifications of accepting a large volume of Middle Eastern men.

When the culture refugees come from says it’s okay to stone women and mutilate their genitals, it should raise red flags — and yet Merkel brought in 1.1 million in 2015.

Where is Marvel’s Dr. Strange, now? He most certainly isn’t in a Cologne police station listening to victims describe their attackers.

A Police officer in Cologne told Express.de on Thursday that 14 suspects in custody came from Syria and 1 from Afghanistan.

What makes the whole scenario even more disgusting is that German officials have responded to the outrage by cutting a deal with Facebook, Google and Twitter to work with authorities on identifying “hate speech.”

The Washington Post reported Thursday:

German authorities, meanwhile, have reached a deal with Facebook, Google and Twitter to get tougher on offensive content, with the outlets agreeing to apply domestic laws, rather than their own corporate policies, to reviews of posts.

Critics call it the enforcement of political correctness, raising the question of what constitutes hate speech and sparking a national debate over free expression. Germans have been outraged, for instance, by reports of more than 100 sexual assaults and robberies in the city of Cologne allegedly committed by gangs of young Arab and North African men on New Year’s Eve. Some Germans are questioning whether their online comments could be taken down, or whether they could be charged with incitement, for publicly pondering whether refugees could have been among the assailants.

When Germans become livid that mass sexual assaults are happening in formerly peaceful towns, the response is to police the people experiencing righteous anger.

Fact:  Roughly 200 policemen were needed last Friday night in Cologne to restore order, and when the sun came up it was obvious they were overwhelmed.

This is only the beginning of many dark days ahead for Europe, and the sad thing is that they brought it upon themselves.

  1. I read an article on this in our newspaper yesterday. It’s crazy, it’s political correctness gone mad. Something is definitely wrong when the facts and truth of the matter is suppressed for fear of offending a perpetrator’s race.

    Anyone that commits a crime, regardless of race should be exposed These are crimes perpetrated against innocent people by lascivious men unable to exercise self-control.

    This behavior highlights the kind of lewd thoughts inhabiting their minds showing total disrespect towards women. Is there a thought amongst these men that once they have been welcomed into a new country and given a safe haven, that all western women are willing to have sexual relations with them, by force or otherwise? Would they be getting away with this behavior back in their country of origin?

    It’s frightening to think that reporting on the actual facts as they happened, without bias, without prejudice can now be seen as hate speech and actively slammed with a PC band-aid. Absolutely ludicrous.

    Isaiah 5:20
    “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

    1. “I read an article on this in our newspaper yesterday. It’s crazy, it’s political correctness gone mad.”

      I was watching a pretty good video in my Facebook feed the other day. A German guy was saying (paraphrasing), “Listen, I’m not a political guy, and I thought a lot of the stuff I heard about these refugees was just right-wing propaganda, but I saw it in Cologne. I was there. This is real!”

      The part where he said, “This is real” was an actual quote. Then he said something along the lines of, “A couple of months ago we were handing out teddy bears to these people and now this. It’s crazy.”

      Yep. Well, some of us tried to tell you this was going to happen. I’m sorry that you didn’t listen to us.

  2. When I was 16 years old my high school German club planned a trip to Germany during summer break. I was so excited! I had never been out of Nebraska. (That’s not 100% true since I lived in Omaha which boarders Council Bluffs, Iowa…which is, believe you me, the furthest away from a tourist attraction as it could be.) We spent 10 days in Germany and visited some of the most beautiful cities!

    We visited Munich, Hamburg, and Berlin…Which was an amazing time to be there! A couple years after the Berlin Wall came down. It was extraordinary to see and meet people from the East. They behaved like children on Christmas morning, after Santa had visited. Loving their new freedom. Cherishing their new way of life. I remember one kid told me, “Es ist wie auf einem anderen Planeten!” Which means, it’s like being on another planet! Needless to say, I had never experienced anything like The East and West Berlin union.

    We also visited Cologne, one of Germany’s oldest cities founded in 38BC. I remember this stunning cathedral right next to the train station. The same train station host to the Muslim refugees who committed such heinous sexual assaults and rapes of innocent women of this beautiful city New Years Eve.

    Cologne is losing its beauty at an accelerated rate. All because a savage group of degenerate Muslims have basically invaded it. The naive people of Cologne welcomed these Muslims with open arms and hospitality.

    Muslims hate everything about the West. All the freedoms and opportunities. This goes against everything taught by Islam and the Qur’an. ALL Muslims will not be happy until they terrorize and kill the nonbelievers, implement Shari’ah law and dominate the world.

    It really pains my heart to see the destruction of Germany. Before the influx of Muslim refugees, it was such a wonderful place. It will be missed.

  3. When I heard about the Cologne attacks, I instantly thought of Cumberbatch’s idiotic “f**k the politicians” line. I’ll still see Doctor Strange, but I really had a hard time getting through the most recent episode of “Sherlock” knowing that he’s yet another limousine liberal who hates conservatives like me for simply disagreeing with them. Well, that and “The Abominable Bride” was an incoherent mess to begin with and easily the worst episode of an otherwise great show.

    I’m glad the German Huffington Post sees sense and has called out the politically correct cowards in the media for not covering the Cologne attacks. On Facebook I’ve noticed people calling others “racist” and “xenophobic” and “Islamophobic” for bringing up the simple fact that the rapists were Syrian migrants. Breitbart had pretty good article detailing Western feminists’ reaction to the Cologne attacks. Basically, they’re just calling people “racists.”

    I also saw a few “Trump is Hitler” comments, and those made me shake my head as well. Stuff like this is a reason why Donald Trump is popular, why Marine le Pen is popular in France and why PEGIDA and Alternative for Germany are both gaining popularity. It’s because too many politicians are too scared of “offending” the migrants and people are tired of PC claptrap.

    1. “I also saw a few “Trump is Hitler” comments, and those made me shake my head as well. Stuff like this is a reason why Donald Trump is popular, why Marine le Pen is popular in France and why PEGIDA and Alternative for Germany are both gaining popularity.”

      You hit the nail on the head, Carl. If the only alternatives are a.) Getting called a racist/bigot/Islamophobe for pointing out the truth, or b.) putting in your chips with Donald Trump, then a lot of people are going to gravitate towards Trump.

      People are fed up with being demonized for simply loving their country and the western values that cultivate the freedom/liberty they enjoy.

  4. And the elitist media and politicians will still insist that unrestricted mass immigration is inherently good. And any suggestions for any common sense, reasonable immigration reform will be dismissed as racist, paranoid, xenophobic, Islamophobic, etc., etc., etc.

    This case is just one more example of how the MSM and the politicians in the US and Europe simply don’t care about their own citizens. The liberals want unskilled, uneducated immigrants who will be dependent on public assistance programs and who will therefore vote for the leftist party. And both the limousine liberals and the conservatives want cheap labor. If some of the immigrants turn out to be violent criminals or terrorist Trojan Horses, and if innocent people are murdered and/or raped, well, so what? Omelets and eggs. Besides, the victims are ordinary peasants. The politicians and yuppie journalists will be safe in their gated communities, surrounded by walls and armed bodyguards.

    Now women are supposed to “dress modestly” and stay at “arm’s length” from rapists? What if the rapists refuse to stay at arm’s length from their victims? And what does “modest” mean? Is it enough to wear a hijab? Or are women in the Western countries supposed to wear burkas now? Are we going to impose Sharia law on ourselves and save ISIS or Al Qaeda the trouble?

    It’s beyond “political correctness.” It’s dhimmitude.

    I’m reminded of the parable about the woman brought the venomous snake into her home.

  5. Huh you mean that dissolving the Baathist army giving the rise to ISIS would have ramifications? Who would have thought that. Oh just everyone. Screw the neocons in both parties.

    1. “Huh you mean that dissolving the Baathist army giving the rise to ISIS would have ramifications?”

      I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you went with the extremely vague “ramifications” because you understand that leaving the Baathist army in charge also would have had “ramifications.” Likewise, calling the ISIS a “J.V. Team” and treating them as such had “ramifications.”

      “Screw the neocons in both parties.”

      The vast majority of the time, when someone begins an argument by dropping “neocons,” that’s their way of trying to telegraph, “I know what I’m talking about. Don’t question me,” when really they’ve said almost nothing. Is President Obama a “neocon” now? He didn’t send in ground troops, but he bombed the hell out of Libya, disposed Muammar Gaddafi, and then it imploded into a jihadist Disneyland. Perhaps national security is a bit more complicated than “screw the neocons.”

      Linking to The Onion is nice, I guess, but try reading a few more books with first-hand accounts from those who were on the ground and behind the scenes as these decisions were made. It’s a bit more time consuming, but well worth your while. I suggest Sean Naylor’s “Relentless Strike: The Secret History of Joint Special Operations Command.”
