Immigration into Germany: Myths vs. Facts

The following video begins with a typical German propaganda clip in which the virtues of mass immigration are extolled — all those doctors and engineers (and their wives, children, uncles, and cousins) who will enrich Germany.

An economics professor then takes a look at the facts of immigration. He doesn’t discuss the social and law-enforcement disadvantages of migrants, but concentrates solely on the financial downside — and that’s bad enough.

Here’s some background on the professor and his data:

Hans-Werner Sinn, a professor of economics at the IFO Institute (Leibniz Institute for Economic Research) at the University of Munich.

He mentions a study by Ludger Wößmann, who is a professor of economics at the University of Munich and Director of the IFO Center for the Economics of Education. His main research interests are the determinants of long-run prosperity, and of student achievement. He uses micro-econometric methods to answer applied policy-relevant questions on the empirical economics of education, often using international student achievement tests. His special focuses is to address the importance of education for economic prosperity — individual and societal, historical and modern — and the importance of educational institutions for efficiency and equity. Further research topics cover aspects of economic history, the economics of religion, and the Internet.

Somali Culture-Enricher Experiences a Sexual Emergency in Ortona

A Somali youngster in a small coastal town in Abruzzo found himself in urgent need of intimate companionship. Unlike some of his fellow culture-enrichers in Austria in Germany — who seem to prefer pre-pubescent children of both sexes — his taste ran towards older women, and he acted accordingly.

Man Strips Naked in Street, Rapes Old Woman

In Ortona

(ANSA) — Ortona, November 15 — A 20-year-old Somali man stripped naked in the street and raped an elderly woman who was sunning herself on a beach in the Abruzzo town of Ortona on Thursday, local sources said.

The man was said to be have a protected status as immigrant.

The attacker first slammed the woman’s head against some large rocks and then forced her to submit to sexual violence, the sources said.

The woman managed to wriggle free and flee while the Carabinieri arrived at the scene.

“I was afraid he wanted to kill me, but luckily I managed to break free,” said the 68-year-old at a hospital where she was treated for cuts and bruises and severe concussion.

Anti-migrant League leader and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini tweeted: “20-year-old Somali man, who arrived in Italy on a migrant boat, goes around NAKED and then attacks a 68-year-old woman, injuring her and using sexual violence on her. These are the thanks for getting protection from Italy! WORM!”

The Culture-Enriching News From Catalonia

Our Catalonian correspondent Pampasnasturtium sends a translated article with the latest cultural enrichment news from Barcelona, followed by an overview of the political context in Catalonia.

First, a translated article from La Vanguardia:

Sexual gang-assault on a young woman in Santa Coloma de Gramenet [suburb of Barcelona]

November 11, 2018

Local police arrested 14 young men, also accused of stabbing her partner

[Photo caption (not shown) : Two of the attackers harassed the young woman inside the subway premises, at Can Peixauet station.]

Today local police in Santa Coloma de Gramenet arrested 14 young men accused of sexually assaulting a young woman in the town and stabbing her partner, as announced by Cadena Ser radio station. The incident took place at about 6am. Two of the attackers harassed the young woman inside the subway premises, and apparently they and their gang-mates groped her within the elevator of the Can Peixauet metro station.

The attackers are young men formerly under the guardianship of the regional Catalan government [ex-”tutelados“]*, all of them of Maghrebi ethnicity. According to police sources, they’re the inhabitants of a squat house located on Santa Coloma’s Generalitat Avenue, where they were arrested yesterday in the morning. The house was sealed off.

The detainees had previously been arrested by Santa Coloma’s local police a couple of times during recent days, because of their alleged involvement in different violent thefts. Most of them are allegedly affected by scabies, which has led the police cars they were transported in, as well as the police station and its cells, to have to be disinfected. Santa Coloma’s Town Council stated that joint action by local police and Mossos d’Esquadra [regional Catalan police] has made it possible to arrest all of those involved in this sexual assault.

The young [female] victim’s [male] partner was taken to Esperit Sant hospital to be assisted, and his present medical condition is non-life-threatening.

*   Translator’s note: not mentioned in this particular report, they’re known as “mena”, that is, “menores extranjeros no acompañados”, unaccompanied foreign minors. The fact that now it is stated they’re no longer under such guardianship means they’re not legally minors anymore.
 

Aftermath of the tragicomedy, so far

by Pampasnasturtium

On Monday evening, a minor (one of two alleged minors out of the fifteen arrested, instead of the fourteen initially reported) escaped.

Instead of boarding (as he was supposed to do) the van that would take them both from court (where the attorney had just set them free) to one of the regional-government Infancy and Adolescence Affairs Department premises, he just ran away.

The other minor complied.

On Tuesday, the acting judge jailed without bail five of the (adult) attackers, all of them accused of sexual assault against the young woman, and three of them also stand accused of attempted murder, with a knife, against the victim’s partner.

(Source of the above)

On Tuesday some 500 persons marched against “all forms of” male/patriarchal violence (“violencia machista”), to show “solidarity” with the victims, to call for a harmonious living-together, AND against racism and against “stigmatizing the young”.

A façade of officialdom and institutional character was given by the openly stated support and organization of the march by Santa Coloma’s Town Council, the local Federation of Neighbors and Neighboresses (sic) Associations (“Federació d’Associacions de Veïns i Veïnes”), and the local Women’s Associations Council.

Such organizations denounced “the emerging signs of racism and xenophobia visible on social networks” against young immigrants, which are “an incendiary discourse and endanger the very coexistence and security of our male and female (sic) children”.

Kingersheim (68th Department): “Youths” from the projects pretended to be Yellow Vests and attacked the police

by Koba, November 17, 2018

Police officers from the Wittenheim police station, who were ensuring security around the Château d’Eau in Kingersheim and who were especially managing traffic on the RD430, blocked by the protesters, were attacked in the early evening (around 7:30 pm) by a group of about twenty Yellow Vests who were clearly hostile.

Even though most of them were wearing the rallying sign [yellow vests], the majority were also wearing balaclavas and holding iron bars.

The police quickly realized, after a rock or two flew in their direction, that they weren’t dealing with the protesters of November 17, but with young thugs who arrived from the neighborhood of Bourtzwiller, situated a couple of hundreds meters away from there, as the crow flies.

[…]

Two youths, aged 15 and 22 years, were arrested by the members of the Canine Brigade [of law enforcement] and of the BAC [anti-criminality brigade], and they are being temporarily detained.

Preparing German Schoolgirls for Life Under Sharia

The following video is a chilling report on an “experiment” conducted on girls at a German high school. These young ladies are required to wear the hijab in public, and then report how it makes them feel. It’s as if they’re being coached on the way to behave once Islam becomes dominant in Germany — which will probably happen within their lifetime.

The Latest From the Socialist Paradise of Sweden

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Fria Tider:

Three Africans in custody for gang rape in Björn’s Garden [a park in Stockholm]

November 12, 2018

There are two Somalis and an Eritrean man now in custody for the rape of a woman in Björn’s garden in Stockholm on Friday. They are also detained for robbery.

It was at midnight between Friday and Saturday that a woman contacted police and told them that she had been raped in Björn’s Garden at Medborgarplatsen in Söder, Stockholm.

The event is classified as aggravated rape, and the victim is a 20-year-old woman.

Immediately after the incident, however, the police were able to arrest three perpetrators who are now in custody.

This concerns three African men who are 18, 20 and 29, respectively. They were detained on Sunday on probable cause, suspected of aggravated rape and robbery.

According to information obtained by Fria Tider, one of them needs an Arabic interpreter and another for Somali.

Two of the men are citizens of Somalia and the third of Eritrea. It therefore concerns newly-arrived immigrants.

The district court’s document indicates that the rape occurred during the space of half an hour between 11:15pm and 11:45pm on Friday. The robbery had to have taken place at the same time, and in the same place as the rape.

All were arrested at 12:13am on Saturday, minutes after the rape occurred. The prisoners are in custody at Södermalm.

The men deny committing crimes.

Paris: a sixty-year-old who was attacked says he was called “infidel”.

by Céline Carez
November 15, 2018

An investigation has been opened for deliberate violence committed for religious reasons.

He had been Christmas shopping. He was leaving the subway at Alesia station (14th district) and was quietly walking towards Maine Avenue (14th district), holding in his arms a package wrapped in very Christmassy paper. The events took place on Wednesday at 6:20 pm.

A stranger approached and pushed and slapped him, causing his glasses to fall to the ground. The assailant allegedly said to him, before turning around and walking away: “Behold what we do to infidels.”

The sixty-year-old, shocked, went up Maine Avenue towards the 14th district police station in order to file a complaint. An investigation was initiated for deliberate violence committed for religious reasons.

Matteo Salvini: “We Want to Bring Legality Back to Rome”

Italy has just cleared the first of twenty-eight illegal migrants’ camps in Rome. Based on photos and videos, these camps seem similar to the improvised squatters’ camps that now clog the streets of Paris.

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has vowed to clear all of the illegal camps. The first to be closed was called “Baobab”, named for an African tree — it’s not clear whether the inhabitants or their Italian neighbors chose the name.

Want to bring legality back to Rome quarter by quarter

(ANSA) — Rome, November 13 — The government will clear another 27 Roman sites after Tuesday’s clearance of the Baobab migrants camp, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday.

“Order and security. We want to bring legality back to Rome, quarter by quarter,” he said.

“We’ll make other clearances, using objective criteria: four for dangerous buildings and 23 because they have judicial initiatives in course. We won’t stop: we mean to move from words to deeds”, he said, vowing to be obdurate on illegal squats.

Big Trouble for the AfD

JLH has trawled the German-language news and compiled this report on the latest difficulties besetting the AfD.

Big Trouble for the AfD

by JLH

Putting together a few different news stories delineates the development of a campaign by the opponents of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). For a while there was an inclination to treat the new member of the Bundestag and the EU Parliament like an unsightly blemish that has suddenly appeared on the body politic. Disapproval radiated from all points of the spectrum. There was an effort to look away from this unsightly growth and pretend it wasn’t there. Unlike their American establishment cousins, the Germans did not immediately froth at the mouth and insist that this was all some ghastly cosmic error that must be expunged by any means, fair or foul.

As referenced in an earlier article on the difficulty the established parties were having dealing with the AfD,[1] the Süddeutsche Zeitung noted:

The other parties must find a clear and sensible answer to such provocations. Thus far, their dealings with the AfD have been by simple reflex and even against the rules that mark the spirit of an exemplary parliament. That just plays into the hands of the AfD. It is time to take a course that is defined by aplomb, composure and a clear approach, instead of agitation and defensiveness. The general tendency to condemn every one of the 92 representatives of the AfD as racist or other extremist, because he belongs to this distasteful party, and should be replaced. General uproar leads nowhere, no matter how repulsive the AfD’s ideas may be. It has seldom harmed the AfD in its five years of existence and helped it greatly. A rejection must be specifically based.

As will become clear, the German establishment — apparently uninterested in this solution — has found a much more “Democratic” approach. First, there are the demonstrations in Chemnitz, precipitated by an immigrant’s stabbing a 35-year-old resident. As a friend of mine with some knowledge of the city remarked to me: “I think the government picked the wrong place to experiment.” The news media reported that Chemnitz has a certain “neo-Nazi” history, but there was no equal emphasis on the likely influence of living for decades under authoritarian decision-making in the German Democratic Republic. Those who fear the resurgence of Nazism — along with the many more who fear the emergence of the survivalist East German psyche — have the satisfaction of knowing that the “Constitutional defense” forces, a.k.a. National Security, have now decided to officially “monitor” the goings-on in Chemnitz and, consequently, the AfD. Thus supporting the voices that tie the AfD to Nazism. An article by Hans Heckel titled “AfD in a Grotesque Situation” reveals the claim that “elements of the AfD have an ‘undefined relationship’ with anti-constitutional persons or groups, or express themselves in a way that suggests such.”[2]

The second barrel of the establishment shotgun was made in Switzerland, and it is aimed directly at the party leader whose mere presence in the party is a repudiation of so many claims of misogyny, bigotry and other sins automatically laid at the feet of the AfD. Alice Weidel — Alexander Gauland’s running mate — is in a single-sex relationship. The couple has one adopted child. This paragon of progressive values is also a reliable, articulate conservative who was even willing to campaign in Thuringia with the “notorious” Björn Höcke. There could hardly be greater damage to the party than the loss of this member.

An article in stern.de entitled “The AfD and Good, Old Money — Alice Weidel Under Pressure” sarcastically lays out the situation:

Ganging up on the AfD

The following video shows a brief (and antagonistic) interview by Die Welt with Jörg Meuthen, the spokesman for AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). The topic is the recent ouster of Hans-Georg Maaßen from his position as the president of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, and then from his new job, all because he had the audacity to deny the reality of the purported “man-hunts” of migrants during demonstrations in Chemnitz. It is rumored that Mr. Maaßen may now join the AfD.

The Crap Is Out Of The Bag

The latest op-ed from the popular German columnist Hans Heckel concerns the growing ranks of countries that are refusing to sign the UN’s migration pact (Bulgaria declared against it today, if I’m not mistaken).

Many thanks to JLH for translating this piece from Preußische Allgemeine Zeitung:

The Crap Is Out Of The Bag

How the Austrians are messing up Berlin’s plans; Why foreigners are racists; And why the Italians need to be knocked for a loop.

The Week in Review, with Hans Heckel

November 10, 2018

It’s really annoying. The plan was to be quiet and secret, under the radar: sneak the “Global Pact for a Secure and Regular Immigration” into position with no attention paid publicly. No debating! That would answer questions that can only be answered evasively, if the cat is to be kept in the bag.

Now this plan is in tatters. Is anyone surprised that that it was those devious Austrians again? They pulled the plug, and a flood of unpleasant questions spewed into German public attention.

To be sure, the USA and Australia had already rejected the “Immigration Pact” that was to be signed on December 10th in Marrakesh. Hungary followed suit, and doubts grew in Poland, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia and Switzerland. But who are they really? All rightist populists!

Austria is more complicated. Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is considered a fellow party member of the German CDU/CSU. As is Hungary’s Viktor Orbán — at least officially.

Only when Kurz formally rejected the pact did Berlin really get nervous. Then, the first CDU politicians found things a little too hot. The Interior Affairs expert Marian Wendt does not want the federal government to sign the pact. Instead, he asks for a “factual debate.” A “factual debate” — that would be something new. He offers the best of reasons for this daring stroke. Because otherwise the rightist populists would set the tone of the debate. The title of this situation should be: If the “rightists” hadn’t created the opportunity, no one would be asking about it at all.

The Foreign Office under Heiko Maas intends to take the field against “false claims” about the pact. One such false claim is that the pact contains obligations. Well, sure, some persnickety analysts searched the text and turned up the words “obligate” or “obligation” used 87 times. Which, however, in no way obliges Heiko Maas to admit such obligations. And in a sense, he is right. Rather than an obligation, the UN Immigration Pact is more a kind of chute on which the countries of Europe and North America will slowly slide into accepting anyone at all, en masse.

What is the great objective? The late Immigration Commissioner Peter Sutherland divulged it years ago: The national cultures of Europe are to be overcome — that is, semi-hollowed out and flattened (as PAZ reported). Since not everyone wants to hear that, the slide path has been chosen for the Immigration Pact.

It will be crucial to keep the “factual debate” free of critical objections. That’s the way to go. According to the AfD’s constitutional expert Dietrich Murswiek even using the expression “overwhelmed by immigrants” could lead to being accused of anti-constitutional actions. So be careful of what you think out loud, when you have not heard a single German word on the march through your own city district.
