New Year's Eve in any big drunken public space is usually pretty gruesome but Germans got their lederhosen in a big head-up-the-ass knot over attacks on women by gangs of suspected North African and Middle Eastern guys at Cologne's train station while 'revelers enjoy the celebration.' (ie: a big herd of drunks hanging out setting off fireworks).
Sorry, Mutti Merkel, not all refugees are cuddle toys!
Like any other population, they will include a percentage of young male assholes and criminals, and they have every demographic "right" to be so.
Germany wanted more low-paid toilet cleaners & geriatrics' ass wipers. They got em!
White Man's burden has come home to roost and the historical irony is pretty rich. The media tried to pretend it didn't happen but that backfired badly. I guess nobody told them about social media.
So some newspapers began to do their job and invesigators quoted police on scene as checking IDs and finding most of those they checked, who were suspected of causing trouble, were asylum seekers. Witnesses and victims said the men "looked" North African or Middle Eastern. So what? They're supposed to be saints because gentrified German hypocrites want to polishing their halos on them?
Being nice and pc and respecting women is not required to be granted asylum, as far as I know and expecting men from a vastly different culture, which treats women as property, to instantly become Westernized and culturally-sensitive is a nice fantasy but then reality sometimes intervenes.
The Euro bourgeois elite political class had better come to grips with this reality soon or the goosestepping won't be far behind. Young angry men whose lives have been destroyed by ravenous Western imperialism may not want to behave like grateful house pets.
