Groping is Just the Price We Have to Pay for Living in a Multicultural Society

The following video from Austria features Irmgard Griss, an Austrian lawyer, judge, and former president of the Austrian Supreme Court. When she was elected to the National Council, Ms. Griss was supported by NEOS, a progressive pro-EU party that has vigorously championed women’s rights.

Her interlocutor is Henryk Broder, a popular writer and commentator.

Ms. Griss seems to be willing to accept a little gropin’ & rapin’ from migrants, as long as they don’t actually get arrested for theft or murder or something like that.

Who says feminists are inflexible?

NEOS politician wants tolerance for macho migrants

The NEOS-representative and former OGH- president Irmgard Griss has just presented a quite interesting new course concerning the topic of migration. On a talk show at Servus TV, Griss literally said: “If he (refugee/migrant) won’t recognize our values, in terms of not recognizing the equality of women… I think we can get over that.” And her answer to Henryk Broder’s objection simply was: “Yes we’ll have to live with it.”

Just one look into the Krone archives shows how determined the NEOS has been in the past fighting for the equality of women and for the strengthening and furthering of women’s rights in Austria. The party is even presenting the women’s rights speaker Claudia Gamon as a top candidate to the coming EU-elections in May.

Therefore it was all the more surprising for viewers of the talk show “Hangar 7” on Servus TV when they heard Irmgard Griss’ latest about-face: The former president of the High Court, Austria’s Supreme Court, was of the following opinion concerning deportation of risk-asylum seekers: “If he (refugee/migrant) is not a thief, if he doesn’t kill anyone, if he’s not delinquent, but if he only does not accept our values, meaning he’s against women’s equality — oh, well, we can get over that.”

Maybe not his daughter

Henryk Broder, the well known author, who was also a participant in the show, interrupted Griss: “Get over that? Maybe not his daughter!” And he made a clear gesture of his hand on his neck, implying decapitation.

[Translator’s note: Here the article does not mention that Griss’ nonchalant answer to Broder is: “Pfft, she can defend herself,” in a very disparaging tone of voice. But in the short 37-second video you can hear her say that. Don’t know why the article didn’t mention that outrageously dismissive comment.]

However, the NEOS politician didn’t let herself be sidetracked to advocate for tolerance for outdated and dangerous macho behavior among migrants. In fact she doubled down: “We have to remain grounded. Yes. We are going to have to live with that.”

Should have been president

On the internet Griss’ statements have already caused intense debates: “Irmgard Griss from the NEOS says here very unironically that we can get over it when people come to Austria who do not acknowledge our values, such as gender equality.” And the sociologist Bernhard Heinzlmaier ironically commented: “So it is clear: Irmgard Griss should absolutely have become our president. She always finds the right words. Thank you.”

Video transcript:

0:00   But if he’s not delinquent, in other words
0:03   if he’s not a thief or killing anyone or dealing drugs,
0:06   but instead he just does not accept our values
0:09   in terms of the equality of women,
0:12   Oh, well, we can get over that, no?
0:15   We can get over that? But maybe not his daughter!
0:18   She can defend herself against that.
0:21   I mean, we have to remain grounded here. It’s not like
0:24   we can just say, oh, we just can’t handle this at all.
0:27   Why do you think in this fashion that there
0:30   are problems that we can’t solve?
0:33   Please tell me, why? —We have to live with that.
0:36   We have to accept that, and we have to live with that.

  1. Yes, things are that insane here in Austria, one of my granddaughters told me that some months ago while she was in the waiting room of a hospital in Sankt Pölten a man with what the tv describes as “asian features” seated next to her despite many other empty seats in the room, she said the man began to rub his leg against hers and had a visible erection, she got up from the seat and told the security staff about it, their answer was ” take another sit” ¿what can we do when so many europeans have internalized the desires of those who hate us? Honestly I can’t handle the fear about my family’s safety, I’m always scared that something will happen to my daughters, my husband, my grandchildren.

  2. Griss has a twisted moral compass. Recently she managed to insult both H C Strache and the Identitarians in one short sentence. Austria is infested with communists and imo she is one of them.

  3. Likely she would welcome the amorous attention of an entire gang of strong, virile, hyper-aggressive african males.

  4. This man are so retarded and reduce socially and intellectually that one wanders if we should call them from the same species.They may as well be named Homo Erectus.

  5. It’s so much worse I think. She’s a first wave feminist. Hence, authoritarian and downright superior to everyone. In her mind. She cares little about what every day women go through every day.

    Her feminism is superior to the woes of other women. Her dismissive “yeah well she can defend herself” is what’s most shocking to me in all of this.

    She actually thinks that her superior first wave feminism gave every girl the tools with which they can defend themselves. She thinks women are absolutely equal to men and therefore if you get harassed or raped you fight back like a man.

    In her mind, women are already men. And girls are already Kung fu fighting young males. So she will always be ignorant to the plight of millions of females not just in her country but around the world, being sold into sexual slavery and forced marriages, being abused and raped etc, because in her mind girls and women like that simply do. not. exist. anymore.

    After all, her feminism took care of that. Didn’t it? And why else did she sacrifice her whole life to the cause? It’s a done deal!

  6. Reminds me of something Broder said back in 2006. I’ve saved this lo these many years, for its pith and how profoundly revealing it is:

    [Henryk M.] Broder is convinced that the Europeans are not willing to oppose islamization. “The dominant ethos,” he told De Volkskrant, “is perfectly voiced by the stupid blonde woman author with whom I recently debated. She said that it is sometimes better to let yourself be raped than to risk serious injuries while resisting. She said it is sometimes better to avoid fighting than run the risk of death.”

    In a recent op-ed piece in the Brussels newspaper De Standaard (23 October) the Dutch (gay and self-declared “humanist”) author Oscar Van den Boogaard refers to Broder’s interview. Van den Boogaard says that to him coping with the islamization of Europe is like “a process of mourning.” He is overwhelmed by a “feeling of sadness.” “I am not a warrior,” he says, “but who is? I have never learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying it.”
