Number Of Sexual Assaults In Cologne Far Higher Than Originally Reported. Meanwhile, Privileged Woman Tweets Nightmare Of Male Referring To Females as “Pretty Young Ladies”
[guest post by Dana]
Much is being made of this tweet complaining about an act of shameful sexual harassment when an airline pilot complimented the flight attendants on board the plane. MORE magazine editor Betsy Fischer Martin was the captive tweeter witness to the verbal abuse:
I know. Devastating. Truly awful. A compliment! From a man! Just how much leaning in do women have to do to end this national nightmare??
And so it goes. Such is the life of the accomplished, over-educated first-world cupcakes tightly wrapped up in their little cocoons of privileged upper-class existences.
But back in the real world, it’s a different story. If only it were just a perceived insult, life would be so easy. Instead, it’s brutal, ugly, and wholly devastating. Remember the rampant sexual attacks perpetrated by Middle Eastern asylum seekers that took place in Cologne, Germany earlier this year? I wrote about it here and here. Today, we learn that what is horrible can always become a whole lot worse:
At first, there was complete silence from officials. As rumors spread on social media, police had nothing to say about allegations of mass sexual assaults and other crimes carried out on New Year’s Eve in the German city of Cologne.
It was only days later that officials reported that hundreds of women were victims of assault in Cologne, Hamburg and other German cities.
But numbers that are now emerging are likely to shock a country still coming to terms with what happened in Cologne more than half a year ago. According to a leaked police document, published by Germany’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper and broadcasters NDR and WDR, the previous estimates have to be dramatically revised — upward.
Authorities now think that on New Year’s Eve, more than 1,200 women were sexually assaulted in various German cities, including more than 600 in Cologne and about 400 in Hamburg.
More than 2,000 men were allegedly involved, and 120 suspects — about half of them foreign nationals who had only recently arrived in Germany — have been identified.
Only four have been convicted, but more trials are underway.
As a reminder, President Obama plans on welcoming at least 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States this year. Hillary Clinton upped that number to 65,000. Typical of the left, however, if you don’t identify the problem and name it in the public square, the problem doesn’t really exist, and therefore, there is no need to consider any unintended consequences.
