From Mark Steyn,
Happy New Year to you. On the Eighth Day of Christmas the multiculti fetishists gave to us:
Seven sexual assailants:
At least seven people were arrested for sexual assault in the German capital, police said, as cited by Die Welt newspaper…
In most cases, women were “groped between their legs or their buttocks,” Thomas Neuendorf from the Berlin police press office told Ruptly. “The suspects were predominantly young men from Syria or Afghanistan,” he said. More.
Reality check: Why do so many Europeans, including feminists, choose to obfuscate, defend, or look the other way? I replied to Mark and that reply garnered three replies in turn from others, so thought I may as well share it:
Europeans have no special reason to defend their way of life. True, they like it. But, if someone holds a gun to their head, they quite sensibly give it up. Their way of life was nothing but the pursuit of pleasure anyway.
For example, women who give up Christmas caroling because of Islamic death threats were not rejoicing in the birth of their Saviour. They were indulging an antiquated pleasantry. And when it grew dangerous, they stopped doing it.
Had they believed that they were rejoicing in the birth of their Saviour, they would not so easily vote for politicians who pander to the terrorists who threaten them.
If European women are forced to live in garment bags in order to be safe on the streets, they will do that too.
Their feminism will adjust; indeed, it already has. They traded everything for abortion and a bargain was sealed.
Of course, they don’t enjoy being reminded of how far they have fallen. So they persecute those who remind them.

Modern movements depended on definitions; post-modernism dissolves them. If feminists cannot say that wife-beating is always wrong (that would be cultural appropriation) or that their concerns are for biological women who suffer inequities (that would be transphobia), they have nothing left but the fight for government grants among those who snatch the various pieces. There is no further coherence and none is sought.
