The German government wants to prevent a repeat of what happened in major cities last year on New Year’s Eve. Here are some of the planned measures.
After more than 1,000 women were mugged, sexually assaulted, and raped by migrants last New Year’s Eve, the city of Cologne is considering using helicopters, registering all newcomers, and setting up “women retreats” to keep females safe this year.
Hmm… “Women retreats”. Does that mean “no males allowed”, i.e. purdah for the women on New Year’s Eve? Because unless the rules have changed, the German authorities can’t permit native German men to enter an area while keeping migrant men out — that would be discrimination, don’t you know.
The following two videos describe an initiative designed to teach the “New Germans” the correct form of “flirt” behavior. That is, explain to them when it’s not OK to grope, assault, or rape a cute girl you’ve just seen for the first time.
I don’t know about this approach. Does anyone really think it will cut down on the groping and raping by culture-enrichers when Silvester Night rolls around again next month?

|00:05||What is flirt, and what is not? Often, this is difficult, especially for young refugees.|
|00:09||A specific class is meant to change that.|
|00:12||Many refugees told me that they feel under general suspicion.|
|00:18||And no one wants that of course. Well —|
|00:21||none of the attendees want to hassle anyone or anything.|
|00:24||And therefore we just trained for sensitivity there.|
|00:27||Because time and again misunderstandings happened. Language barriers were to blame,|
|00:31||but also helpfulness, which would often be equated with fondness.|
|00:35||That is why many women are initially wary of flirting refugees.|
|00:40||You are, well, more careful. When someone has good manners and is polite,|
|00:43||then I couldn’t care less where he comes from.|
|00:46||Talking to me, okay, and accepting a “no”, but anything exceeding that, and I’m quickly gone.|
|00:52||The seminar lasts four hours, and there are no flat pick-up lines here.|
|00:56||Rather, it is about respect and the right tone in the contacts with each other.|
|01:01||We were working on a healthy attitude here, that is, approaching others in a respectful way,|
|01:05||and, also to feel comfortable doing that. But of course also|
|01:09||knowing what is it I want, and respecting the other’s boundaries.|
|01:12||Despite that, Wenzel is just not met with applause.|
|01:15||Especially after the assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.|
|01:18||But the flirt coach is certain: only in this way can such incidents be prevented in the future.

|00:00||In Germany, the refugees who wish it have now right to a seduction class|
|00:04||in order to find a kindred spirit… In Dortmund|
|00:08||this young coach shares some of his advice to help accelerate|
|00:12||finding a match. After a wave of rapes and sexual aggressions|
|00:16||during New Year’s Eve in Cologne last year, those young refugees|
|00:20||desire now to break through the wall of indifference. — “We can do that!”|
|00:24||“Sometimes German girls are a little|
|00:28||racist towards refugees,” explains this young Syrian. “They don’t know|
|00:32||what refugees think or how they live. Some girls|
|00:36||have a bad image of us.” “The way of living|
|00:40||in the Middle East is different from the way of life of people who live here in Europe,”|
|00:44||says this young man. “The religion is different, customs and freedom.”|
|00:48||“We don’t have this much freedom, like here in Germany.”|
|00:52||The young coach is multiplying his interventions all over the country|
|00:56||for a good cause. He usually sells his advice to rich German singles for a lot of money.|
|01:00||In the streets of Dortmund, randomly encountered German girls praise the initiative:|
|01:08||“A touch of humanity, of honesty, of confidence, that’s what works,”|
|01:12||explains this young woman. “I don’t care if they’re from Syria or not.|
|01:16||I’m an emancipated woman and I don’t like to be limited by others.|
|01:20||Other than that I am not hostile: if he is open-minded,|
|01:24||it can work.” Even if many refugees cannot master the language of Goethe yet,|
|01:28||their coach assured them, that sign language, patience and kindness|
|01:32||were still excellent tactics.
