A Cologne woman who came forward to offer her account of being sexually assaulted on New Year’s Eve is being attacked a second time. A Internet video surfaced giving out her identity and suggested her of her attack was Islamophobic.
What is infuriating about this isn’t the usual Leftist criticism that disapproving of open-border immigration policies is racist, but how much more insidiously hypocritical it is. When women come forward with stories of sexual assault in this country, the social justice warriors are quick to leap to their defense. But now this poor woman’s story is not only being trivialized, she’s being called bigoted simply for stating the facts as she experienced them.
What’s at stake here isn’t just the shifting of German national identity, which can be fairly debated, but that this cultural shift is now trying to deny private citizens from safely coming forward to recount a criminal act on no other basis than it’s a White woman saying “Southern looking” men with “dark skin” assaulted her.
A German woman is being accused of spreading “anti-Muslim propaganda” for recounting the story of her sexual assault in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
The 26-year-old woman named Selina withheld her full name when she gave an interviewto German television channel SWR Fernsehen last week. In the interview, she described her moment of terror being surrounded by dozens of men who looked at her like “free meat at the supermarket” and groped her repeatedly. She noted that her attackers spoke Arabic and did not seem to understand German. She described the group of men as “southern looking” with “darker skin.”
In a follow-up interview with SWR Fernsehen, Selina describes what happened to her after the interview aired. Someone posted a video containing a portion of her interview and suggesting all of the reports blaming Muslims for the Cologne sexual assaults were propaganda. Titles appear in the video which say, “Strange that Selina 1 day after this horror (3 days before this interview) on Insta still was happy.”
That’s apparently a reference to her Instagram account which the video creator found along with her Facebook page. The video not only suggests Selina is wrong about who attacked her but includes images of her full name and where she works from her Facebook page.
There is something greatly perversely twisted about this whole scenario. It’s unsettling to think that someone recounting the story of her sexual assault can not only be dragged through the mud, but also have her personal information milled out for the whole Internet to do what it wants with it.
When will this madness end?
