In Germany and Sweden crazy goes to the bone

goeren-640x481

I have written before about how liberal lefties view the world. They tend to see the world how they want it to be, whereas those on the right tend to see it as it is. When reality smacks a caring leftie in the head, however, you would expect them to acknowledge that they were wrong. In this case, (and this is not the first time this has happened) a left-wing politician and activist from Europe has illustrated that crazy goes to the bone. Her belief system seems to be more like brainwashing, because how else could you explain a woman wanting to protect the men who gang raped her?

A left-wing German politician has admitted she lied to police about the nationality of three men who raped her in case it triggered racism against migrants in her country.

Selin Gören, who is a spokeswoman for the left-wing youth movement Solid, was attacked in the city of Mannheim in January while working as a refugee activist. She was ambushed in a play area late at night and forced to perform a sex act on her attackers.

Although she went straight to the police after the attack, she did not report the ethnicity of the men, nor that they were speaking Arabic or Farsi.

Instead, she said the men spoke German and robbed her.

However, after her initial interview she went back to the police 12 hours later and told the truth.

She told the latest edition of Germany’s Spiegel magazine that, after the reaction to the Cologne sex attacks, she did not want to create “more hatred against migrants in Germany”.

She also wrote an open letter to a fictional migrant on Facebook, saying: “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.”

A report by Germany’s Interior Ministry published in May showed that migrants in the country were committing a disproportionately high amount of crime.

The report found that 70 per cent of pickpocketing was committed by non-Germans since the start of 2014, with 34 per cent of this committed by recent asylum seekers.

Non-Germans also accounted for 40.2 per cent of burglaries and 43.5 per cent of shoplifting.

However, presenting the report to the press, Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière focussed on “politically-motivated crimes by the far-right”. This was despite these incidents being far less numerous than migrant crimes, and even less common than crimes by the far-left.

It is one thing to be dedicated to helping people and to have empathy for their plight. It is another thing to deny the harsh reality, especially when it impacts on you personally. It makes me wonder how much of the German education system has been about brainwashing its children. Surely only years of being told that the German people were evil for what they did to the Jews could has resulted in this self-flagellating behaviour. Why can’t they see that the very people they are now being so accepting and welcoming of have a long violent history of intolerance of other cultures and religions and are a terrible ideological fit for the new tolerant and caring Germany.

A  feminist politician in Sweden has shown that brainwashing isn’t confined to Germany. She has defended migrant rapists. Her argument is that when rape is committed by Swedish men it is worse than rape committed by Muslim men because of the cultural differences.

“The Swedish men who rape do it despite the growing gender equality. They make an active choice. It’s worse…” Tweeted Barbro Sörman of the socialist and feminist Left Party.

Mrs. Sörman, who represents a district of the capital Stockholm, was responding to what she claimed was too much media focus on the fact that the majority of rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants.

Her deflationary argument is a good example of the cultural and moral relativism that is prominent on the left, and explicitly argued for by many postmodern academics.

If the Swedish man makes an “active choice” to rape, the implication is that the migrant rapist has little choice because of the misogynistic, violent culture he is from. His crime is not “worse” as it is excused by his culture, and there is no moral equivalence with the Western rapist.

When contacted by Sweden’s Free Times, Mrs. Sörman continued to defend this line of argument:

“Take a picture of Sweden as an equal society, where all are nurtured in equality. Then you can say that if you are brought up in it, you make an active choice to not be equal, rather than if you are brought up in a society that is not equal”, she said.

When pressed later, she backed tracked. She said the Tweets were “clumsily expressed”, adding: “I’m not saying it’s worse, of course not!”

Western feminists, who are often committed to multiculturalism, are well known for failing to confront non-western oppression of women. After the mass sex attacks by migrants in Cologne, Germany were uncovered, local feminists held a demonstration in favour of mass migration and against rapes by what they called “German-born” men.

Like Germany, Sweden has experienced several instances of mass, organised sex attacks by Muslim migrants, the latest reported just last week. The country is now informally known as the rape capital of Europe and has one of the worst rape problems in the world, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa.

Forty years after the Swedish parliament decided to transform Sweden with mass immigration into a multicultural society, violent crime has increased by 300 percent and rapes by 1,472 percent.

However, the country’s feminist establishment has been accused of inaction on the growing problem of sexual violence.

The government has an official policy of not disclosing the ethnic origin of offenders and last month an official report by Swedish police report into mass sex attacks my migrants blamed “Nordic alcohol culture,” “ignorance” and the “non-traditional gender roles” of European women for the growing problem.

    This will probably get me thrown under the next passing bus, but given her believes why did she even bother to report it? First it was Germen speaking men that robbed her and then it was immigrants who assaulted her. Does she not see that the lack of transparency and accountability is what is causing most of the hatred. Given that there will always be a level of racial or cultural intolerance, most people I believe are angered more at the attempt to cover up and pervert the normal course of holding them accountable, no mater who they are. The Swedish example is most telling, holding Swedish men more accountable as they should “know better” and giving immigrant a free pass because they are unwashed heathens. Anyone who does this is a scumbag who in my opinion should be tied to a tree, no matter where they come from.

      To me it just seems another attempt to create a situation where there are 2 interpretations of the law. One for those born in Sweden and one for incommers. No attempt whatsoever to assimilate apparently required by the immigrants, we do not want this in NZ.

  • phronesis

    This is the key point and we are seeing it used here in New Zealand now:

    “Take a picture of Sweden as an equal society, where all are nurtured in equality. Then you can say that if you are brought up in it, you make an active choice to not be equal, rather than if you are brought up in a society that is not equal”, she said

    Everything can be blamed on inequality. Why are Maori over represented in the crime stats? -inequality- Why do adults beat children to death? -inequality- As the quote above shows, personal responsibility is something that only rich white people have. Everyone else is excused of responsibility for their actions because -inequality-.

  • shykiwibloke

    First real sign of madness is complete denial of rational conclusions from factual evidence. Essentially a departure from reality.
    I fear aspects of Western Culture is way past that point. Can it survive this onslaught? We are on a knife edge and facing a new dark age if the status quo continues for much longer.

    “Her belief system seems to be more about brain washing…”
    Last night’s clip on ‘Modern feminism broken down by two old-school feminists’ discuss when & how the corruption in education came about. What a dangerous lot those of the Left have become in their ignorance.

  • Nechtan

    Reality smacks these lefty/liberal feminists in face, but they are so indoctrinated in their beliefs that they refuse to acknowledge them or they deflect them. It would seem there is no hope for these people and their countries with such denial and active suppression.
    How long before the “average citizen” has had enough?

  • NahYeah

    If you want to get off a rape charge in Sweden, immediately convert to Islam.

  • NahYeah

    The Sweish police report blamed “……… the “non-traditional gender roles” of European women”

    So, surely feminists will need to adopt the traditional gender roles of islamic countries.

    It isnt really rape. Its just non-voluntary sex.

  • NahYeah

    I think I may have found the culprit for this way of thinking, an anthropologist called Franz Boas. I am guessing that the Swedes and Germans were brainwashed with his teachings on “Cultural Relitivism” in their multiculturalist schools:

    “Among Boas’s main contributions to anthropological thought was his rejection of the then popular evolutionary approaches to the study of culture…………. and that consequently there was no process towards continuously “higher” cultural forms.”

    “Boas also introduced the ideology of cultural relativism which holds that cultures cannot be objectively ranked as higher or lower, or better or more correct, but that all humans see the world through the lens of their own culture, and judge it according to their own culturally acquired norms. ”

      The thing I find strange is culture is one thing but criminal law is the same for all – why is it suddenly culture-dependent?

      Edit: added question part

  • anaru

    The vacuum of critical thinking began in Europe when embracing diversity rather than having a coherent world view. Degrees of rape? Equality is a noble concept but equality from which coloured lens? Escape from reason describes Europe perfectly.

    • Shalice

      Diversity does not seem to include their own culture – or rather their culture is deemed inferior and any criticism of foreign values is called racism and white supremacy. Insane.

    In Alta, Finnmark, just one night ago we got talking to a lovely German couple, early 60’s, on their Northern Scandinavian tour. Mrs. D. Said that a week earlier they were in Stockholm in the underground railway when she was involved in an “incident” with three “new immigrants”. She was terrified and could not get out fast enough. They said they hate Merkel for what she has done to Germany, and she said she fears for the safety of their 22 year old daughter in Frankfurt. P.S.: WOBH is being read in the Northern most part of Europe…Nordkapp (very close by).

      “WOBH is being read in the Northern most part of Europe…”

      That’s good to hear!

      It would be wonderful if more of the readers in overseas countries left comments here. Very few seem to.

    These are the depths to which the West has sunk, its culture and values torpedoed by the leftists.

    If the damage can be fixed (and that’s debatable) I’d say it will take at least a century or so. Government-run schools (which have been taken over by the left) should be replaced with private and charter schools. Teacher training colleges should also be privately-run.
    Those steps will at least be a start.
