Rape Culture in Europe

You would think that feminists and other assorted leftists would be up in arms about an epidemic of rape and sexual assault. In Germany and Sweden, nations that are led by women and that strongly sympathize with feminism, such is not the case.

Rather than being up in arms against rapists, feminists in these countries are doing their best to excuse the criminal sexual predators. Why? Because the predators are Muslim… thus, members of an oppressed group.

One day we will all understand why leftists believe that Muslims should be given a pass on assaulting young women. That day is not today.

In Sweden, where a spike in refugees has corresponded to a concomitant spike in sexual assaults, an “expert” on sexual crimes, a man who is also a psychotherapist, has the explanation. He blames it on global warming.

And no, I am not joking. I told you to beware of psychotherapists. I told you that many of them are far more interested in indoctrination and brainwashing than in your mental health.

So, here are a few words from Borje Svensson, via Breitbart and Zero Hedge:

Providing the perfect reason that absolves the Swedish establishment of all responsibility, Svensson described how we have been a bit unlucky with the weather this year. Hopefully we will have a colder summer next year and sexual crimes will then be an old memory linked to that one hot Swedish summer. If by any chance, there are still rapes during a colder summer, our experts will simply find another scapegoat rather than looking straight at the imported criminals. Perhaps fewer flies, or high ocean levels. Say hello to the mental hospital named Sweden everyone.

Obviously, it’s not just about absolving the feminists in the Swedish establishment of all responsibility. It’s about absolving the criminals of all responsibility. I have in the past called this a modern version of human sacrifice. I would like to see evidence showing that I am wrong.

As for the evidence, Breitbart London offers some recent instances of sex crimes in Sweden:

Recently, an immigrant from Eritrea who brutally raped and beat a young Swedish girl so badly that she got fractures in her spine received his “punishment.” He will not even be deported.

Last month, at a football tournament in Gothenburg, a team from Morocco were kicked out for playing a game of “Taharrush” with some young Swedish girls (or, in other words, collective sexual assault by a group of men in a public place). A wannabe famous football player then wrote an article blaming “the old male attitude”. Unable to see any cultural reasons behind the crimes that had happened.

At a festival in SkellefteĆ„ in July, sexual assaults were committed at an event where sponsored buses had been provided for asylum seekers. The Swedish establishment couldn’t fathom how the now infamous “Don’t touch” bracelets they had handed out hadn’t protected the girls.

Last week, there were several reports of gang rapes but also “regular” rapes. One of which happened at one o’clock in the afternoon, in broad daylight, to a 14-year-old girl. As always, it is obviously a coincidence that some of them occurred close to homes for asylum seekers.

As for Germany, the most powerful woman in the world has not been having any conspicuous success in tamping down the rising tide of sexual violence. It’s almost as though the refugee population has looked at her and concluded that it’s open season on German women.

Precisely why people continue to think that electing a woman will be good for women… escapes me.

Of course, Merkel and her political party were repudiated in a recent local election. To which the Chancellor has responded that she will not change her policy and that it’s not her fault. Because, if you cannot deny responsibility, what good are you?

Breitbart London (via Zero Hedge and Maggie’s Farm) describes a recent scene from a street in Hildesheim:

Police say that the victims of the attack, all between 18 and 21-years-old were walking down the streets of the city at around 2:40 am when they were approached by the trio of migrants. The migrants spoke to the women in English and attempted to corner them and kiss them. The victims say that the gang made various physical gestures that made it clear they were after sex.

When the women resisted the migrants by telling them to go away and using body language to ensure the migrants understood they weren’t interested, the migrants became irate. The men followed the women and then set upon them, striking the women in the face and grabbing their buttocks. One migrant kicked one of the women in the stomach.

After the beating the migrants once again tried to engage the women and this time threatened to smash several glass bottles of beer and champagne over the heads of the women if they didn’t comply with the demands of the migrants.

We are waiting for public officials to admonish young women not to go out on their own at night. In current parlance this is called blaming the victim.

And Breitbart adds:

Migrant sex assaults during the summer are becoming increasingly common in Germany and other countries that have taken in large amounts of migrants like Austria and Sweden. In Sweden police have even claimed that the sexual assaults are not the fault of the migrants but rather the European “drinking culture.”

This weekend also saw massive sexual assaults at a festival in the German city of Essen where at least 10 German women were sexually assaulted by men of a migrant origin.

Evidently, the police who are blaming it on drinking culture have not read the study that blamed it on global warming.

One reflects that these crimes are becoming so commonplace that people are beginning to be numbed to them. And one notes that they are very rarely reported in the American mainstream media. I wonder why that would be?

Insufficiently nuanced, Schneiderman. The problem is drinking the global warming kool-aid.

But I'm wondering why the hordes of male rapists on American college campuses don't choose to study abroad: better legal environment, better beer, better wine. What's not to love?

Feminism survives where there is little thought of retaliation for bad ideas. Add real fear and feminists will submit. The more educated and steeped in feminism the more the justifications will flow to cover the failures of feminism to deal with real world problems. It also helps where men have forgotten how to be men though I can understand that if one is damned if they do and damned if they don't it makes sense to DON'T.
Feminism, like most "isms," is a quick march backwards. Respect does not come to those who lack respect for the differences that make us who we are meant to be as human beings. Did you ever wonder why we have two sexes and the importance that resides in that decision? As one might say, "You made your bed and now you have to sleep in it." Ultimately there are NO safe spaces to hide because evil is a terrible task master who relishes fear.
Ah the joys of the educated and their justifications.

"Precisely why people continue to think that electing a woman will be good for women… escapes me."

I'm with her.

Nothing truer said than this Rush Limbaugh gem: "Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society." And what did they do with this "access"? Don't be confounded or confused... it's very simple: feminists don't care about other women. They are radical individualists who want power and money. They want to complain. They constantly feel slighted, abused and ill-used. They want to be men, and they got screwed in the genetic lottery. Life is unfair. And they are, by and large, ugly, with frightful temperaments.

Wikipedia says "Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social rights for women that are equal to those of men. This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment."

How's that going in Sweden or Germany? Somehow, I see rape, sexual assault and predation as a setback. I don't hear a lot about emigrants raping Swedish or German men.

So when these "feminists" turn a blind eye to rape and pretend it's about the lie of global warming, you see what they're really about: power without responsibility. They don't care about women's issues. It's a ruse for their own self-advancement in politics, where they get to complain and blame on a larger scale. They loathe femininity, and associate it with weakness. So it's just another Leftist pogrom of self-loathing and ceaseless criticism of others as the source of all one's problems. They're destroyers.

"I have in the past called this a modern version of human sacrifice. I would like to see evidence showing that I am wrong."


Sacrifice to what? The mirage of the Leftist utopia. What, me worry? The sum total of all Leftism is pity... pitying everybody who is "oppressed." And that's a lot of victimhood. It's sick. And after all, they'll say, there's really nothing to worry about. The pain of rape will pass, wounds will heal, and you can get an abortion if you need one.

That's what "freedom" is for the Left: material freedom for all, until they run out of other people's money.

I see two possible outcomes:

Either European men develop a collective pair and start wasting some of the vermin in their midst, or (more likely)

They will convert to Islam themselves so they can join the party too.

TW, blaming the drinking culture misses the fact that Muslims don't, or are forbidden to, drink.

IAC, Wiki is spouting the approved nonsense about equality. We know that's not what Feminists want. Which is superiority.

Denmark has its problems as well.

"TW, blaming the drinking culture misses the fact that Muslims don't, or are forbidden to, drink."

They're not blaming the Muslims, they're blaming the Swedish (and German) females for being intoxicated. That's why they're raped... because they're asking for it. I mean, what self-respecting beautiful Swede doesn't want to go out and get sloshed and then be raped? What a fun Saturday night! The authorities have to put a stop to this new Scandinavian recreation, eh? The girls are getting out of hand, and it's making the Mohammedan lads look bad. Tsk-tsk.

And the idea that Muslims don't drink is laughable. Maybe the pious are teetotalers, but the masses of Muslim men enjoy intoxicating liquors, and do so to excess where available.

And yes, feminists do want superiority. I'm with you 100%. Wikipedia has the "approved" view which is -- as you say -- nonsensical. But it doesn't have to make sense... it's Leftism! Insatiable malcontents on parade.

Europe isn't going to develop a "pair". Western Europe was demasculinized by two great wars. Their alpha males are rotting in neglected and forgotten cemeteries. The remnant are mostly EU-niks, incapable of defending themselves or the women.

Stuart: Recently, an immigrant from Eritrea who brutally raped and beat a young Swedish girl so badly that she got fractures in her spine received his “punishment.” He will not even be deported.

Here's a google translation of the link.
For this crime came african away with two and a half years in prison after sentencing in Skaraborg District Court. According to the law, he would also be expelled from Sweden after serving his sentence.

But the Gota Court of Appeal chose to put his foot down and tear up the expulsion order because of the low penalty and because the 26-year-old was granted a permanent residence permit in Sweden by the Swedish Migration Board.

It looks like they have 2.5 years to reconsider their deportation policies. We can imagine cases like these are going to be playing out in political ads in the coming years. There's an accounting still coming.

Cases such this make it easier to reconsider the death penalty. How does society ever trust a man again who acts like that? And deportation merely moves the problem elsewhere.

It does seem like the flaw in humanitarian ideals is to imagine humanity is a state that is inherited from birth, rather than built up through culture and good parenting.

Myself, I find the legality challenges of a death penality as too inefficient, but I'm not against giving life sentences for such violence, while leaving a looped rope in the cell just in case the criminal wants to make amends for his sins.
