MAYOR OF COLOGNE TELLS RAPE VICTIMS THEY HAD IT COMING: Mayor Henriette Reker “said today that women should adopt a ‘code of conduct’ to prevent future assault at a crisis meeting following the sexual attack of women by 1000 men on New Year’s eve,” the London Independent reports:

The crisis management team said prevention measures should include a code of conduct for young women and girls, and Mayor Reker said the existing code of conduct will be updated online.

The suggested code of conduct includes maintaining an arm’s length distance from strangers, to stick within your own group, to ask bystanders for help or to intervene as a witness, or to inform the police if you are the victim of such an assault.

Buried 11 paragraphs and three quoted tweets deep into the Independent’s article is this minor detail:

The attackers were described as North African and Arab appearance by the police. The Mayor has said that not all of the attackers were newly-arrived refugees and had already been known to the police, as reported by The Local.

Perhaps the Independent buried this detail not just because of the usual PC “better dead than rude” mindset, but with Rotherham also on their mind. And it may have been on Mayor Reker’s mind as well, as Allahpundit writes. “The possibility of a (failed) cover-up by authorities in the name of racial harmony recalls the infamous Rotherham sex abuse cover-up in the UK (which lasted years, it should be noted, not just one evening). The idea of sexual assaults happening out in the open in a mass gathering place recalls what Lara Logan went through when she was attacked in Tahrir Square in 2011.”

11 years ago, then-UN Secretary Kofi “Can I trust Saddam Hussein? I think I can do business with him” Annan said, “In many countries of Christian tradition, large Muslim communities are a relatively new phenomenon.  Integration is a two-way street.  Immigrants must adjust to their new societies — and societies must adjust, too.”

Europe can’t say it wasn’t warned that more than a little behavior modification would be in order to placate its large — and ever-expanding “Muslim communities.”

And they’re not alone — “Remember that viral video of Canadian children singing a Muslim ‘welcome’ song? Learn the sick TRUE STORY behind the music,” proffers Ezra Levant today.
