Annals Of Progressive Self-Hatred

I found this on the Gates Of Vienna website. It’s a clip from a German news documentary in which a German woman of Turkish descent who describes herself as a “socialist, anti-fascist, feminist” tells the story of how she was gang-raped by men she believes were refugees. They were speaking Arabic or Kurdish, she can’t be sure. She went to the police to report that her purse had been stolen (which was true), but did not mention the rape, and lied about the offenders (she said one of them was a German). As an activist, the woman had demonstrated in favor of refugees, and didn’t want to bring them into disfavor. Watch the clip to find out what happened next.
