    Europe Sees Wave of Sex Attacks Amid Migrant Crisis (40)

    German police deployed water cannons against protesters at a rally against sexual assaults committed by suspected asylum seekers on New Year's Eve.

    German police used water cannons and pepper spray to disperse a right-wing rally in Cologne against assaults committed by refugees against women on New Year's Eve in the city of Cologne, Reuters reported.

    Two people were injured after a clash between protesters and police, and several were arrested. The roughly 3,000 chanted slogans such as "Merkel must go," and acted violently against police, an eyewitness told Reuters.

    "Rapefugees not welcome," one banner reportedly said.

    According to police, 3,000 people attended a rally while 1,700 police officers were in the streets, considerably larger than the number of police present when 120 women were robbed and sexually assaulted, Reuters reported.

    Left-wing women's rights activists earlier protested the assaults in Cologne. "No means no. Keep away from our bodies," one sign read, according to Reuters.

    Cologne police said on Tuesday that they had received around 90 statements from women sexually assaulted on New Year's Eve. Of 32 suspects identified by police so far, 22 were seeking asylum in Germany, Reuters reported.

      Why do the political ruling class hate Western culture so much? It doesn't make sense at all!

      Ignore the rapists and fight for their "right" to stay in Germany, but spray German protesters against the government with water?

      That is treason in my book. We, the people, need to fight back. Otherwise we will lose everything we hold dear.

      siberianhusky, The GER State is controlled by NATO-US. Operation Gladio continues under a different name. Merkel is a puppet.

      No mention is made here in this post of PEGIDA (Patriotische Europäer gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes) as the chief organizer of this right wing protest. Is that truly the reality behind this protest?

      espenskrdal, Western culture has been multi-cultural, from the times of the slaves in ancient Rome, the great people's migration, the crusades, the Renaissance, the French revolution, American independence...

      If this were a leftist demonstration in support of sexual freedom of the newcomers, there would be no water cannons. My fellow Germans, you all of us in Europe have destroyed this beautiful continent. It is time to wake up, and regroup.

      jas, they did not know these terrible events were going to take place at the railway station, so they weren't prepared, maybe it was organised crime that recruited these people, maybe secret services, read Jim Stone's blog, he will have some insights for you on that issue (scroll down). Yet they have a certain experience with these Pegida, Kögida etc. rallies, and since in Germany open parading of Nazi symbols and views is forbidden, so the police had to be there to prevent it. Had they known about the events in Cologne beforehand, they would have been there in greater numbers, they are not that thick!

      lianasammartino, thanks. But there are Europeans who claim in social media that it is the DUTY of ALL Germans to go to train stations, and welcome refugees. If this is of interest, the article "Soros plays both ends in Syria refugee chaos" (journal-neo.org/2015/12/18/soros-plays-both-ends-in-syria-refugee-chaos/) is eye opening, and not too time consuming.

      THE ZIONIST THAT CONTROL GERMANY ARE THE PROBLEM. If you take care of that problem everything else will be solved for the good of the people. Notice how the white German Christians are being invaded by Black And Arabs from the Mid East completely radicalized with no respect for their own lives let alone the German people. Notice how beautifully orchestrated these 2 groups of people have been placed head on to each other while the filthy Zionist watch the show laughing at all of you.

      Humanity has been Pavlov'ed to the point of doing the work of their very worst enemies without question. Give people a part of their productivity, enough so they can have a bit of a good life, then, take it away from them -- watch, what they will do for that 'paycheck' then. They'll do anything, even cut their own throats, even laugh in the face of their own terror, even give over their own people to the murderers and their leadership. The nations will burn, there can be no doubt about that anymore, this too is part of the plan: DEPOPULATION. America, when the numbers are stacked against you as they soon will be; all that was ever needed was for an American President to tell the people in Europe don't put up with this Muslim crap and that would have been the end of it. For failure to protect your own brothers and sisters, America, yours will soon suffer equally and worse than are they suffering in Europe today.

      Miss Germany, are you saying that raping women is ok but freezing regugees no... The definition of double standards is reflected on you... I bet that if you were one of those victims of the assaults or rapes, you will think totally different..... there´s no solidarity on those words
    • Mother Gorillain reply toggd959(Show commentHide comment)
      ggd959, a cold and hungry man makes a poor citizen, indeed! You would agree that Germany admitted these people under false pretences, knowing full well they couldn't provide decent accomodation and benefits, especially in the cold winter? Then, to elaborate on the idea of double standards, imagine 500 black ladies had been attacked by hords of white men! You would agree that at the very least they would mention on the news that these ladies had been sexily done up and had moved in a provocative manner? Then we would have said, well, these flirty beasts had it coming to them. Don't say, that's not true, because I have experienced things like that, and I am more the academic type. If you had gone to the Bahnhof that night as a woman, wouldn't you have taken a friend or dressed conservatively? Women who followed these guidelines have already come forward and said they were treated very politely and did not witness any rapes or attacks in their vicinity. As a result of all of this, they are now thinking about making the anti-rape laws more severe. You know that feminists developed the concept of an eyeball rape, meaning just looking at the woman can make you liable to a rape charge. That will get more white men into trouble than ordinary Muslims or good Africans.
      Anyway, there have been rallies already by foreigners trying to explain that they are being blamed for a few exceptional freaks.
