Last Friday the owner of Brucklyn club in Bad Tölz, Bavaria, told his bouncers not to let a group of young men into the premises.
The group had apparently done nothing wrong. The problem was that they were asylum seekers.
The situation escalated when a couple of local guests saw what was happening and accused the bouncers of being “Nazis pigs”, according to a version of the story given by the club on Facebook.
But in the Facebook post the club admits to blocking entry to refugees in order “to maintain well-being in the club.”
“This is a clear example of racism,“ Hamado Dipama of the Munich Refugee Council told The Local. “It is totally unacceptable to punish a whole group because of the actions of a few people – that is the definition of racism.”
“It is absurd for them to treat people who come from so many different parts of the world as refugees do as if they were the same. It would be bad enough if they treated people who came from one country as if they were all the same,“ Dipama said.
However, the club sought to explain in its Facebook post that the it was not motivated by racism.
“It was never an issue for us what religion, background or skin colour guests have. Everyone comes in as long as he respects a few basic, self-evident rules,“ the post explains.
Where are these refugees getting enough money to go carousing, and why as good Muslims are they drinking alcohol?
Get used to these baseless charges of racism, which will multiply as Europe adjusts to its new guests and the guests figure out the best ways to play on European guilt.
