The Cultural Enrichment of Boostedt, Part 2

Last month we posted about the plight of the German town of Boostedt, which had just 4,600 inhabitants before the Great Refugee Crisis of 2015, and now hosts 1,300 culture-enrichers. The impact of so many migrants on the town has been immense.

The following video looks at the reasons for the failure of the multicultural experiment in Boostedt. The Gutmenschen of the town were totally on board with the Welcoming Culture when the crisis started, but the reality of mass Third World immigration has since taught them a hard lesson.

Video transcript:

00:00   It is a call for help from Mayor Hartmut König. He feels that he and his community
00:05   have been abandoned by the government of his state, Schleswig-Holstein.
00:09   The small city was sent three time as many refugees as originally planned.
00:13   Now fear and squabbling dominate in Boostedt, which was once considered
00:17   the showcase city of the welcoming culture.
00:20   1,300 refugees live in Boostedt, a community of just 4,600 residents.
00:28   Although there are many refugees, the “Welcoming Cafe” is closed.
00:32   The weekly get-together meetings with coffee and cake no longer take place,
00:36   because the welcoming culture has turned into fear and loathing.
00:40   I’m afraid for my 15-year-old daughter, that something will happen to her,
00:44   especially if she takes the train — In this small village peace and quiet have departed.
00:50   So what has gone wrong in this tiny city in Schleswig-Holstein? We had a look around
00:54   in Boostedt. We met with the city’s mayor, Hartmut König. He showed us the
00:58   train station where recently the free wifi was switched off. The reason?
01:05   The hotspot led to problems with the refugees, because they would loiter
01:09   on the train tracks and urinate on the fences. And those aren’t
01:13   the only problems, so Hartmut König is concerned that the “welcoming culture”
01:17   is souring. —“It’ just not working so well any longer. The people feel annoyed and
01:21   disturbed by the situation here. They bluntly say that the refugees are
01:25   disrespectful. They take up the entire sidewalk and leave no room for others
01:29   to walk. If young girls walk by, they make kissing sounds — that kind of thing.
01:37   They drink alcohol here in the morning while commuters are on their way to work.”
01:45   Josef Schreiber is the second Chairman of the Association “Welcome to Boostedt”.
01:49   The German-language course once offered by his association no longer exists.
01:54   The association disbanded because there were no longer any refugees showing up
01:58   for lessons. Of course, it was very frustrating and disappointing at the time.
02:06   Integration FAIL instead of integration FUN — that is the situation in Boostedt today.
02:12   Three years ago the mood was completely different. On the 30th of July in 2015,
02:17   there was a celebrated presentation and sightseeing tour of the refugee center.
02:21   The mayor and governor were confident that the state’s €300 million project
02:25   would take root. —As you see here, it is not crowded. Our goal
02:34   is to make it a welcoming environment and a decent place to live.
02:37   And also to show this is a country that makes every effort to help refugees find
02:41   a new home and put down roots after they have arrived.
02:49   Wir Schaffen Das! (We can do it!) The 4,600 citizens were highly committed,
02:53   but the 400 refugees originally planned turned into 1,300 over time.
03:02   Today about 800 of them don’t have a chance of receiving permanent residency.
03:06   They are obligated to leave the country, and are awaiting final deportation.
03:10   These waiting refugees are causing problems their drunkenness and rioting
03:14   in the village. Even though the police presence has increased the residents
03:18   still have concerns. —They have tried to grab women and kiss them, etc. etc.
03:22   The police are called and nothing happens. Nothing. The police come,
03:26   write their names down and that’s it. No consequences. Now women are afraid.
03:32   I know many women who used to take the train. They told me they would
03:36   never take the train alone anymore.
03:40   They pee too much in our front yard and around the shops. The drunken
03:48   loitering is the worst, along with their swearing. We have small children
03:52   that play in the yard. It’s awful to have some drunk guy standing six feet away
03:58   from your child with his pants down.
04:02   I have been robbed. It happened while I was shopping; someone took my wallet
04:07   When you’ve been robbed and threatened, it really makes you think
04:11   more about the entire situation.
04:17   The residents that we spoke with expressed their resentment and discontent,
04:21   but what do the refugees say about the situation in the city? We tried to speak with
04:25   them and met with Zervan, who comes from Iraq, but also must leave Germany.
04:30   The 35-year-old is the only one willing to talk openly about his situation
04:34   and give his opinion about what is happening in the city.
04:38   We don’t feel so happy, because we don’t have very much money and
04:44   aren’t able to work. We are just waiting and waiting. So people get bored.
04:49   We ask Zervan if he knows why some of the residents are afraid of certain refugees.
04:59   Some people they come here, they drink alcohol and consume drugs
05:05   like marijuana. They do all kinds of stuff, so maybe that’s why the Germans are afraid.
05:11   So when the people here are bored and aren’t allowed to work or go to school
05:16   they go crazy. That’s the problem.
05:21   A problem that the mayor recognises, but his small city of Boostedt is not able to
05:26   provide the refugees sent by the state with sufficient meaningful employment
05:31   We cannot start forced-labor road crews to clean the streets
05:41   or something, and that’s not my duty. My task as mayor is convey the message that
05:45   the community of Boostedt is open-minded, ready to help and prepared to work
05:50   together with the state government, but the existing conditions cannot continue.
05:57   Seats in the “Welcoming Cafe” of the church will stay empty because
06:01   half of the refugees housed in Boostedt have no legal right to stay in Germany.
06:05   With no prospects in Germany, they also have no interest in programs
06:09   the volunteers have to offer. As a result, the frustration continues
06:13   to grow among residents about the lack of willingness to integrate
06:17   and the discord brought to their little town of 4,600.

  1. A future AfD voter if he ever manages to get his head out of his posterior… It is a shame that they could not start forced-labor road crews, sort the sheep from the goats, so to speak. Any that will not work or cause public disturbances receive immediate deportation.

    But the inmates still rule the asylum in Deutschland.

  2. From Neumunster to Berlin one drives through towns in that area. First thing I noticed is that Germans start building fences because they learned that high, strong fences can help. For the moment.

  3. You hate to say “I told you so” but everything the migrants have brought was predicted would happen 3 years ago. Even the migrants know the talk about integration is a joke and have dropped out of the German language classes. Actually the mayor was getting close when he mentioned forced labour. The migrants are illegal immigrants any State has the right to detain such people prior to deportation. In the meantime they should be put to work in exchange for their food and rations. This hanging around drunk on street corners hassling local women must be stopped.

    • “This hanging around drunk on street corners hassling local women must be stopped.”

      That the Germans/Germany are allowing this to happen reflects very badly on them. Have they no pride, no sense of worth, no sense of who they are?

      I have travelled and lived abroad quite a lot and went nowhere where this kind of crap would have been tolerated. In a Gulf country I lived in, one was OUT within two days for what might be considered a very small misdemeanour, such as (a male) wearing shorts and a vest away from a beach area. And we didn’t complain! We’d broken their rules. There were no crowds of local idiots at the airport, shouting, waving placards and attacking the police to “prevent deportations”.

      German will get its comeuppance. In a way I’m sorry, but Merkel is still chancellor, which means they – like the Swedes (bye, bye, please close the door as you leave) – haven’t yet had enough.

  4. ” they are going crazy because not allowed to work”?LOL.
    Get up at 6 am and go active till 5 pm is not written in their book. Maybe this iraqui guy is goodwilling, but he should know better the mindset of his cofugees.

  5. Refugees? Are they going to go back home after the conflicts end? No? Then they aren’t refugees.

    • Call them “Persons Permanently Displaced by the Globalist Agenda”. Wish I could think of an alternative that could be fitted into a clever acronym.

  6. The German dude at 3:30 in the video looks like the kind of American male who would take apart anyone who disrespected his town’s daughters and grannies. I guess in Germany they have been neutered.

  7. My biggest question is, if the refugees have been denied residence and are slated to be deported, why are they there? What’s the barrier to taking them into custody at the conclusion of their hearing, and stuffing them on a plane to their native country?

    I have my own ideas. I think the (undoubtedly) bloated bureaucracy is not able to do anything except tax and spend. They allowed the NGOs funded by Soros to organize the mass importation of peoples, and simply ramped up the welfare spigot, something they could actually do. But now, deporting aliens, especially if they claim to not be able to go back and the supposed country of origin won’t accept them, takes determination, dedication and some degree of creativity, all totally foreign to the reigning bureaucracy.

    I also don’t think the German majority will “learn from experience”. If they had the capacity to learn, they would have done so already.
