Most readers have probably noticed that we’ve been focusing a lot on German news here for the past few months — maybe even for more than a year — to the point where we might as well rename the blog “Gates of Berlin”.
There are a couple of reasons for that. To some extent it’s the look-for-your-car-keys-under-the-street-lamp syndrome — that is, we have at least eight volunteers translating German material, so we get that much more of it to post.
However, and more importantly, at this particular hinge-point in history, Germany is at Ground Zero of the population replacement project in Europe. It’s been about two years since the Great Migration Crisis began in earnest, with Germany as the primary target. And between New Year’s Eve 2015 and the same date a year later, there has been a shift in German public opinion. It’s hard to measure, because it’s hard to see — the consensus culture among Germans is so oppressive that it makes Swedes look like rugged individualists in comparison. Most Germans are reluctant to reveal any consensus-violating opinions in public, so until they go to the ballot box next September, we won’t have any reliable guide to how big the change has been.
And in any case the change may well have come too late. By the time the groundswell becomes large enough to flip the consensus, it may be futile — there may be no way to stop the catastrophic self-destruction of the German nation. But we don’t know that yet; we’ll just have to wait and see.
The police in Cologne were determined to prevent a repeat of the Silvester Night Groping Jihad this past New Year’s Eve. By using aggressive, pro-active policing they largely succeeded, so much so that they were labeled “racists” by knee-jerk Gutmenschen in the media.
The same was not true of the rest of the country. It was recently revealed that the hot spot of Silvester molestation was in Frankfurt on December 31 instead of Cologne. The police in Frankfurt were apparently not as pro-active, and failed to prevent the harassment and molestation of at least 900 women by culture-enrichers. And, as in Cologne the year before, the news of what happened was late in coming out. People just don’t want to talk about any groping incidents perpetrated by “refugees”, so the reports get buried, delayed, played down, suppressed, or otherwise kept out of public discussions.
But the news about Silvester Night in Frankfurt has finally started trickling out. Nash Montana and Egri Nök have collaborated on a report about it, with Nash doing the video and Egri the article.
Nash Montana includes this commentary about the video she translated:
Irina is an immigrant. She’s eastern European. She’s not very sympathetic. She seems like the type of woman who can take care of herself just fine.
Also, to me this is a classic simplistic report to ease people’s minds. Of course they already know WHO the men were, they’re playing dumb. Even the bartender didn’t want to say REFUGEES, he started to say “ref-” but then corrected himself, saying “Syrians” — as if he knows their ethnic background and what country they’re from?? They were RAPEFUGEES!
People can’t even say it anymore without fear of either not being politically correct or because they really believe they “shouldn’t judge”.
Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Silvester Night in Frankfurt: Dozens of men allegedly molested women in bar street
February 6, 2017

The accounts are “worrisome”: according to a report, numerous assaults on women occurred on Silvester Night in downtown Frankfurt. The police are beginning their investigations.
The Frankfurt police are looking into reports of hitherto unknown riots and assaults in Silvester night in Frankfurt downtown.
According to a report by Bild newspaper, in the street “Freßgass”, which is lined with many pubs, numerous men rioted in pubs and assaulted women.
Police have announced they were not aware of any of this previously, and there were no complaints of criminality, a police spokesman tells Welt. “But we cannot rule it out.” Since last weekend, the officers have been looking into the reports; there are intense investigations.
The accounts were “worrisome”, a speaker tells the news agency dpa.
A 27-year-old tells the newspaper how she and her friends were groped and sexually harassed in the “Freßgass”.
Staff tried to intervene — and failed
According to police, the officers were twice called to the “Freßgass” in Silvester Night: there were two complaints of battery; there are investigations against a German and an Eastern European. One case of sexual harassment is known from Silvester night — at the Eiserner Steg. “Those weren’t refugees,” the police spokesman emphasizes to Welt.
But bar owners report that a Moroccan employee tried to talk to the seemingly Arab or northern African men. Those were the ones who invariably harassed guests, drank their drinks, stole jackets, and threw bottles.
|0:00||Irina just wants to forget Silvester Night.|
|0:03||She never again wants to remember|
|0:06||how helpless she felt; and I could have said|
|0:09||exactly the same thing a year ago, and it happened again.|
|0:12||The 27-year-old tells of massive sexual abuse|
|0:15||on Silvester Night.|
|0:18||Irina breaks her silence. She wants everybody to know|
|0:21||what happened to her on Silvester Night.|
|0:24||She was celebrating at her favorite bar with friends, as she does so often.|
|0:27||Here she felt comfortable, but this time it’s different.|
|0:32||It was pretty full here, where one would walk through right here,|
|0:35||it’s pretty tight, as you can see,|
|0:38||you were touched on your body, and like I said you couldn’t really know|
|0:41||who it was, and if you|
|0:44||got upset and turned around|
|0:47||then they all would act like nothing happened…|
|0:50||The shame, the fear, the helplessness.|
|0:53||The happy Silvester party becomes a nightmare for Irina.|
|1:00||You just felt so helpless, because|
|1:03||first of all you didn’t really know who it was,|
|1:06||then when you got upset they didn’t even speak German,|
|1:09||and I could tell that when I said something to them|
|1:12||they didn’t even understand what I had said.|
|1:15||And okay, as a woman, you just felt totally defenseless.|
|1:18||Not just in the bar, but almost everywhere|
|1:21||in downtown Frankfurt violence-ready young men were|
|1:24||spreading an aggressive mood.|
|1:27||The situation threatened to escalate.|
|1:30||In his bar the owner Jan Mai tried hard|
|1:33||to keep things under control.|
|1:36||The mood in here was aggressive, and then we realized that|
|1:39||there was a massive number of ref— Syrians supposedly in here, OK,|
|1:42||as it turned out, who had|
|1:45||harassed and abused the girls in here.|
|1:48||that they just sat down at tables,|
|1:51||and just started to drink along,|
|1:54||came in without coats, left with coats, then hid the coats|
|1:57||somewhere outside and came right back in, and it just totally escalated.|
|2:00||Jan Mai tries to handle the situation, alone,|
|2:03||because the police were not a help|
|2:06||during Silvester Night, he says.|
|2:09||I asked the employees, what’s going on,|
|2:12||what happened now, why didn’t you call the police. They said|
|2:15||we called the police, but they’re not coming, they were told it was gonna|
|2:18||take a while, there were so many different things going on… yep, good night.|
|2:21||But the police insist that no 911 calls came in|
|2:24||from the restaurant quarter in Frankfurt.|
|2:27||What happened there was unfortunately not made known to us|
|2:30||until just now, and we would have a good chance that night|
|2:33||to get this thing cleared up with strong reinforcement,|
|2:36||if it had been possible for us and if we had known about it.|
|2:42||They’re symbolic of the chaotic conditions that night.|
|2:45||The police are investigating, but Irina|
|2:48||doesn’t feel safe anymore since Silvester.|
|2:51||I still can’t walk home in the evenings.|
|2:54||I take the car.|
|2:57||What happened on Silvester night?|
|3:00||Who were the men who groped and harassed Irina at the party?|
|3:03||She hopes the police will find the answer quickly,|
|3:06||so that she finally doesn’t have to be afraid anymore.
