Mayor of Cologne Henriette Reker

Rex Murphy: Every major authority in Cologne — police, officialdom, press — failed

“The emasculating logic of political correctness always seeks a path to throw dirt on the victims, while offering something of a clearance sale on the responsibility of the murderers. As it is the essence of political correctness that the tolerant society — the open, multicultural, diverse society — is always both catalyst and agent for the horrific deeds of those from intolerant societies.”

    “As it is the essence of political correctness that the tolerant society — the open, multicultural, diverse society — is always both catalyst and agent for the horrific deeds of those from intolerant societies.”

    That pretty much says it all.

      Mutliculturalism sows the seeds of its own destruction.

      While some natural diversity can work in the long term, a doctrinaire relativist postmodern multiculturalism endorsed consistently by the elites in government and media will collapse.

      I still shake my head when I think back to how quickly and easily we adopted multi-culturalism and rejected the melting pot which was developing organically in Canada. Obviously organic wasn’t fast enough for some people, especially those who were swayed by the (false) glamout of an evil little man with fat ugly lips.

      Overnight our universe changed. I used to think that there was some hope with the steady hand of Stephen Harper on the tiller, but I no longer harbour those illusions. The tsunami of socialism, of which the tyranny of feminism and political correctness are major components, is too overwhelming.

        The melting pot was working fine when I was growing up in south Winnipeg near the university thirty years ago.

          Diversity minus Islam has often worked fine in the past, or at least before black politics has been over-politicized in Canada and the US.

            Some of the people I work with are over sensitized to race.
            Yet, I feel free to call an Irishman a mick or a Scotsman a cheap bastard.
            I shy away from the polack jokes these days now that I know about the Katyn massacre.
            But, socialists are fair game.
            Visible minorities can’t appreciate how much the Europeans hated each other.

            I am often fascinated, too, how the Japanese loathe the Koreans, something I have never been able to understand despite my great appreciation of both Japanese and Korean culture. Many other examples are out there, too.

            That was prior to state sponsored and imposed “diversity” and minus Islam.

      • Political multiculturalism is a failure.

        How can woman-hating Islamism be just as good as Western civilisation?

  • Jim Horne

    The first duty of government is to protect its citizens from the violence and invasion of other independent societies.

    Any government that will not do this has lost its moral authority to lead and deserves to be removed from office.

    • Our government invites those who seek our destruction to settle here.

      • Observer

        The first duty of politicians is to ensure their reelection by whatever means including bring in fifth columnists who care nothing for their new country of residence.

        The second duty of politicians is to line their own pockets and those of their friends at the expense of the foolish public who votes them in.

        • Etobicoke_Gladiator

          Democracy most definitely has big defects. Importing Muslims to vote whore, though, takes the (halal) cake.

        • Denis

          lieberals have proven to be masters at these duties!

    I have very little doubt that every major authority – police, officialdom, press – would fail just as badly if what happened in Cologne happened in a Canadian city.

    • marty_p

      Absolutely. The authorities would have the same attitude of denial that Jews had during the Holocaust – there were those that refused to believe right until the moment the gas chamber door swung shut behind them.
      Of course in the Globe and Bore, Toronto Star and Crescent and on CBC it will not have happened because it doesn’t fit their narrative.

    • If what happened just last year when the police were effectively evicted from Dundas Square by a Mob during Nuit Blanche then you could be right.

      What is absolutely certain however is that every effort would be made to disguise who the perpetrators were.

      The RCMP and CSIS will no longer reveal the extent of Muslim terrorism to the Canadian public, they are that fearful. Honour killings etc are being hushed up.

      I keep thinking back to a co workers wise thoughts ….. “people are f@#cked”.

      Truer words have never been spoken.

  • mauser 98

    few day old story or none on CBC , TorStar sites
    authorities did not all fail at same time by chance

  • simus1

    Perhaps the leftist elites had come to the conclusion that their vacuous placid native populations were in need of an order of magnitude increase in predators to keep them a bit more on on their toes evolutionwise. Doing that plus achieving total suppression of any accounts of the “occasional pack attack” results that would lead to “over reacting” seems like a very ambitious goal even for such superior beings.
    Rex should cut all of these leaders some slack. No doubt they mean well.

  • David Murrell

    What is interesting is that many media outlets have fabricated a false narrative about a “rape culture”, by young white men, on college campuses. But the same media deny there is a real rape culture amongst Arab Muslim men — this despite enormous evidence taking place today.
