Nathalie Hager and thousands of other women this year alone would disagree with your 'there is no problem' stance, Graeme. The source you quoted, 'debunkingdenialism.com', has a pretty obvious agenda baked right into the domain name doesn't it? Look at a more mainstream media source that is not 100% controlled, yet: [wnd.com
...] If you feel that silencing victims and handing out anti-rape cartoons to migrants is the solution then I disagree with you plainly and leave it at that.
If you, or anyone, deletes this already hidden from public view thread then please delete my account along with it, I won't support silencing of victims, or media outlets who do. I believe in holding leaders accountable for mistakes and making them slow down when people are getting hurt. There is no justifying letting a person out of jail within 24 hours of stabbing a police officer. Those 4 women who were stabbed afterwards didn't do anything wrong but were not protected. Silencing people (such as is the topic of this thread) is the wrong approach, it asks for more problems. I can't think of ANYWHERE else in the world where someone can stab an officer while chanting religious stuff and be let out within 24 hours, can you?
Which neighboring country would a Syrian refugee be safe in?
Look at a map and count the countries between Syria and Germany. Many of them are in the EU, are you suggesting none of those are safe? If they are then why are they walking all the way to Germany?
I'm going to assume you simply haven't seen the countless videos and reports on non-EU sites Graeme. The left has gone too far, so far in fact that people like Trump might become president and countries like Britain my leave the EU... too far. The EU has accepted too many too quickly while countries like Saudi Arabia refuse to accept any? There are plans in place to accept millions more migrants over the next few years despite that math clearly showing that more Syrian refugees are arriving than there were Syrians to begin with. Silencing those who object, or suggest this needs to slow down... it's just not the right approach, it's too late for that.
I was encouraged this week when Merkle finally admitted in a speech that 'migrants are more violent than citizens' but a little less encouraged when she offered no solution and simply stated 'we must accept that'. No, we shouldn't. Not having a plan, or refusing to come up with one to avoid being called a racist, is a guaranteed way to fail.
When I see a government and major companies attempt to keep people quiet with arbitrary judgment calls but refuse to hold actual criminals responsible for their actions due to their status or religion, I know something is not right. If that makes me a bigot in your mind, so be it.
