Scenes from Multicultural Europe

Admittedly, it’s difficult keeping up with all the news coming out of multicultural Europe, but at least we can try.

From Hamburg, Germany, the bad news about Angela Merkel’s open arms policy toward Muslim refugees keeps coming at us. From Bloomberg:

Hamburg’s mayor called for swifter deportations from Germany in the wake of a fatal attack at a supermarket in the city by an asylum seeker who was set to be sent out of the country.

Authorities said the 26-year-old man was born in the United Arab Emirates but that his citizenship was unclear because he had no papers and therefore hadn’t been deported. He is accused of stabbing a 50-year-old German to death with a kitchen knife and wounding six others on Friday in the Bambek district of Hamburg. He was apprehended a short time later.

“What makes me especially angry is that the offender is apparently someone who claimed protection by us here in Germany and then directed his hate against us,” Mayor Olaf Scholz, a member of the Social Democrats, said in a Facebook post. “This shows all the more urgently that these legal and practical obstacles must be cleared away during the deportation process. These perpetrators are anxious to poison our society. They will fail.”

For the record the Social Democratic Party is to the left of Merkel’s Christian Democrats. Being seriously multicultural the mayor can only get outraged at the fact that this Muslim refugee was ungrateful. One wonders where he’s been these past years.

As a sidelight, the Free Beacon reports that the German government is having trouble deporting the immigrants it welcomed because they have been filling court dockets with appeals. From the Weasel Zippers blog (via Maggie’s Farm):

Migrants are overwhelming the German court system as hundreds of thousands have appealed rulings denying them refugee status.

Many migrants are suing after being granted “subsidiary protection” status by the German authorities, seeking to become full refugees, the Washington Post reports. Those with subsidiary protection status can stay in Germany for up to three years, but do not have the right to reunify with family.

Two-thirds of cases in Berlin’s administrative court are from asylum seekers, as 250,000 appeals are pending across the country Germany.

“This will paralyze us for years,” a judge told Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel concerning the build up of lawsuits.

Meanwhile in Birmingham, England a 14 year old girl was raped twice in an evening, by two men who are labelled Asian. In the British press Asian means Muslim, perhaps Pakistani. After being raped by one Muslim, she sought help from another Muslim and was raped again. The feminists who are engaged in a culture war about rape culture will, predictably, have nothing to say.

The Evening Standard reports:

Authorities in Birmingham have launched a major investigation after the girl was subjected to a “horrifying ordeal” on Tuesday night.

She was reportedly with a friend at Witton train station at about 7pm when a man approached her and led her to a secluded area, before raping her.

Shortly after the attack, the victim walked away from the area and flagged down a passing car to ask for help at about 2am.

Police say when she got into the vehicle she was raped for a second time by what is believed to be a second offender.

The girl then returned home and the police were called.

Apparently, suspects have been arrested.

In Italy, a Muslim asylum seeker from the Ivory Coast pulled out a knife and attacked a bus driver.

The Associated Press has the story:

A man from the Ivory Coast who faced expulsion from Italy for previous aggressive behavior stabbed a public transit bus driver Saturday in the Tuscan city of Siena, causing a serious injury, police said.

Police said the man retrieved a knife from a home for asylum-seekers where he previously resided after an apparent argument with the bus driver at the end of the line. He returned to stab the driver twice in the stomach and once in the arm. The driver was in serious, but not life-threatening, condition, police said.

The man was known to authorities for previous aggressive behavior and had lost the status of asylum-seeker, police said. He was being housed by a Catholic charity pending his expulsion.

Naturally, the press cannot imagine the motive. Perhaps they should hire a few reporters who have triple-digit IQs.

Back in the good old USA, a Mexican immigrant, protected by Portland Oregon’s sanctuary city policy, raped a 65 year old woman. He had only been deported 22 times.

The Daily Mail has the horror story:

An illegal immigrant with a long history of deportations to Mexico, and who was released by local jail officials in defiance of a federal immigration hold, is now accused of raping one woman and assaulting another in a sickening crime spree.

Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, is charged with 13 counts - including burglary, kidnapping, sodomy and sex abuse - in the knife-point attacks on two women in Portland on Monday.

Six months ago, on December 7, jail officials in Portland had Martinez in custody when they received a request from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, asking the jail to notify ICE before his release.

Yet the local officials released him the next day in defiance of the federal immigration detainer, an agency spokeswoman told the Oregonian

Oregon has a state law forbidding local law enforcement from using any resources to enforce federal immigration law.

Officials of sanctuary cities are going to fight to the death to maintain their policies. They are happy to sacrifice their citizens to sexual predators and homicidal terrorists because they have no quarrel with radical Islam and have no quarrel with Mexican migrants. After all, the Obama administration refused even to consider such people a threat. No, liberal mayors have met their enemy and it is the Trump administration.

When you don’t know your enemy and fight against those who would protect you from your enemy, which side are you really on? At the least you are on the side of cowardice.

Excellent post, tying together several points. Pity the public at large never gets this kind of analysis via the MSM.

But then, no one ever accused Don Lemon, Katie Couric, or Dan Rather of cognitive privilege...

DailyMail: Oregon has a state law forbidding local law enforcement from using any resources to enforce federal immigration law.

I understand the basic logic that says as long as there are people who are here but not lawful residents, that separating law enforcement and immigration status will help protect them from crime since they will otherwise be afraid to report crime.

Apparently the Portland police didn't have any evidence of criminal activity when they released him 6 months earlier. But several studies, over many years, have concluded that immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than people born in the United States. And experts say the available evidence does not support the idea that undocumented immigrants commit a disproportionate share of crime.

Obviously the primary problem is Congress has failed to enforce immigration law, and we now had literally millions of people living their lives here without legal status. So some cities and local law enforcement have decided protecting the safety of millions of people is more important than these risks of cases of psychotic people being among them.

You almost have to wonder how we've gotten this far without federal IDs for citizens and noncitizen residents. Maybe the ReadID is the start of the end of this. The Right has in general been more paranoid about privacy and federal power, but xenophobia does seem sufficient motivate to give up some privacy for safety.

And whether we have 3 million illegal voters like Trump wants to believe, or 45,000 as a group called Government Accountability Institute suggests, knowing who is who seems a necessity for trust in democracy. The probability of 45,000 illegal duplicate votes is the low end of the spectrum, and it does not even account for other types of fraud such as ineligible voting by noncitizens and felons and absentee ballot fraud.

Obviously, the problem is you don't understand the roles of the three branches of government.

Ares, those RealIDs would prevent illegals from voting, and you KNOW we can't have THAT.

On the incident in Hamburg, I understand the guy was chased down and beaten by, get this (official statement), "Persians". Apparently the "Persians" were unconcerned about the multi-cultural aspects of the case.

'"Oregon has a state law forbidding local law enforcement from using any resources to enforce federal immigration law."

Not sure how meaningful these sanctuary claims and directives are, given the Constitution's Supremacy Clause. Funny how liberals conveniently forget, and now seem to believe in states' rights for harboring illegals, and using marijuana.
