Merkel ‘disgusted’ by Cologne New Year gang assaults on women

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has voiced outrage over the sexual assaults and thefts that male gangs inflicted on women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.

Women have made at least 90 criminal complaints to police about the harassment by gangs at Cologne’s main railway station on Thursday night.

The scale of the attacks has shocked Germany. About 1,000 drunk and aggressive young men were involved.

Witnesses and police said the men were of Arab or North African appearance.

Mrs Merkel called Cologne’s mayor Henriette Reker on Tuesday and “expressed her outrage over these disgusting attacks and sexual assaults”.

There is an intense debate in Germany about refugees and migrants, who arrived in record numbers last year. But Mayor Reker urged people not to jump to conclusions about the Cologne assailants.

“It’s completely improper… to link a group that appeared to come from North Africa with the refugees,” she said, after crisis talks with the police.

We have heard about this but this is from a mainstream source. We will see.

It’s unfortunate to see this sort of Rape Culture taking root.


#3

Did anyone honestly believe things like this would not happen when Germany left the floodgates open to North Africa and the Middle East ?


#4

A little bit of vetting when it comes to immigration party would have been a good idea to make sure that people who share German cultural values are the ones being given the green light to enter into their lives.

It is a little bit late for that now though. Ideas have consequences and this is the price that the liberal women of Germany will have to pay for being so kind to the cruel.


#5

When Chancellor Merkel is looking for someone to blame, she would do well to start with the nearest mirror. She is up for reelection in 2017. This will be a very interesting period between now and that election.


#6

And she expected what ?


#7

this is what we talk about when we say heads of government have a duty to protect their citizens. and Angela was named by Time as person of the year. :eek: Like you said - what were they expecting!?


#8

She expected a completely foreign culture and value system to merge peacefully into a secular European society. The newly arrived would show praise and adoration to be shown to their benefactors and it would usher in a new era of cultural understanding and world peace. The ruling class would be seen as a shining light in the new global world order against haters who want to maintain their own culture and values.


#9

A lot of Germans obviously, don’t like the turn of events and have been out protesting for quite some time actually.

So, some analyze this and say, Germany, the industrial giant has been starting to run low on workers and needed new blood, it may not be as easy as saying it has to do with “liberalism” at least in full.


#10

Ah yes Pegida, the junior venture (and very much so at that) Nazi party.


#11

That may be one’s view which is a way of demonizing apparently very popular protests.

We could say those who want the refugees some choice words as well.

That train stations were shut down in addition to this story, somewhat vindicates those who are worrisome about whom comes in.


#12

Look up Pegida’s founder mate and the company the organisation keeps. I generally try to avoid invoking Godwin’s Law but Pegida is an er interesting group. Have a look at some videos of them and you will notice their supporters shouting out catch phrases used at Nazi rallies 75 or 80 years ago.

Demonizing people or groups, good heavens, that would never happen, cough, cough, at CAF. :wink:


#13

Per Bachmann: did Monty Python ever make fun of Nazis? Does that make them sympathizers to the Nazis?


#14

Non Sequitur, Pegida are not making fun of Nazis so the comparison fails to be meaningful or useful in this instance.


#15

It appears one of the founders Bachmann may have been making fun of the Nazis, hence, stating one needs to look at their founders may not be meaningful or useful as well.


#16

She wont care


#17

So,if they’re Muslim,why were they drunk? Their view of western women is that they are available and touchable.Why not given the way 50% of us dress.Its how we deal with this that matters.Either round them up and dump them back where they came from,or ignore it giving them enough rope to hang themselves.As dad said,you do the work without doing the work.


#18

and that is the crazy politically correct world we live in today! :whacky:


#19

And what does the West gain from Islamic immigration ? A Net Loss !


#20

Angela is a perfect candidate for a Time person of the year. Time magazine is a corporate media arm of the New World Order. Western political leaders are for the most part traitors to their own people.
