PACKS OF GERMANS CONDUCT REVENGE ATTACKS AFTER NYE SEX ASSAULTS:

Packs of vigilantes conducted what appear to be revenge attacks on foreign nationals in Cologne, Germany — the same location where refugees and migrants reportedly sexually assaulted hundreds of women New Year’s Eve.

Cologne police said 20 men attacked at least six Pakistani nationals Sunday near the city center where the New Year’s Eve sexual assaults and robberies took place, reported CNN. About 20 minutes after the attack, an apparently separate group of five men assaulted a man of Syrian descent.

The Syrian man was injured, and two of the Pakistani nationals were hospitalized. The attackers allegedly beat the Pakistani men and verbally abused them. Police are looking to press charges as the group of men committed “serious bodily harm.”

As Glenn has written about American law enforcement, “Police don’t actually protect law-abiding citizens from criminals so much as they protect criminals from the much-rougher justice they’d get in the absence of a legal system. Burglars would be hung from lampposts, and shoplifters would be beaten and tossed into the gutter if there were no police, as in fact happens in countries where there isn’t a reliable justice system and a civil-society culture that restrains vigilantism. Reminder to the criminal class: Ultimately, we’re not stuck in this country with you. You’re stuck in this country with us.”

That’s something the immigrants — and Germany’s failing political class should remember.

And with “Europe’s political class…firmly scolding anyone who draws the wrong conclusions” after the Muslims’ sex assaults, as Michael Brendan Dougherty asks at The Week, “Does Germany’s leadership class secretly want to destroy the European Union? I’m beginning to wonder.”

Perhaps the real question is, does Germany’s leadership want to destroy Germany? Dougherty adds, “The message to ordinary Germans is clear: You can’t be allowed to say what you are thinking. And you probably shouldn’t think it either.” If German politicians keep up that mindset, they’re about to make the horrible situation they engineered for their nation far worse.
