A German survey shows that almost half of Germany’s women currently feel unsafe in their own neighbourhoods, with many taking precautions against unwanted sexual advances armed with pepper spray when they do go out.
The survey, by Emnid for Bild am Sonntag found almost two thirds, or 58 per cent of women believe that public places have now become less safe in the wake of mass sexual assaults on women in several German cities on New Year’s Eve last year.
Forty-eight per cent of the women surveyed said they have changed their habits to avoid certain local areas.
Michael Paulwitz, a journalist, says the German Green Party refuses to acknowledge the criminal aspect associated with the migrant deluge and continues to spout ideologically blind slogans about “sexism” and “women’s rights”.
On the Eiserne Steg, a famous bridge in Frankfurt, last year’s New Year’s Eve was also celebrated Cologne-style by gangs of North African men, Paulwitz says, but the Greens instead chose to decorate the bridge this year with “gender” banners, a particularly sad choice.
Paulwitz says this year migrants launched a fireworks offensive against the fire department and law enforcers in public areas on New Year’s Eve.
Vice News also reported on the new reality in Germany: In Neukölln, a migrant neighbourhood in Berlin, swarthy men were firing blank guns in open disregard for German law.
One woman, Kerstin, told Focus Online: “I no longer feel safe as a woman. Harassment, rapes, and raids are happening everywhere. I was particularly concerned by the case of the jogger Carolin [G.], who was killed. I run myself and I find it particularly disturbing that this happened during bright daylight.
“I feel very uncomfortable on my own and avoid travelling alone in the evening or at night. I always constantly carry pepper spray with me.”
Another, Natalie, said that she “narrowly” avoided being present in Cologne on the night of the attacks, but luckily opted not to go. “[S]ince then [I] have avoided groups in the dark,” she said.
She added: “Anyway, I’m not going anywhere in the dark alone. When I arrive by train at our small station, my father is always there to go with me through the solitary underpass. I dare not go alone!
“I ordered two canisters of pepper spray two months ago from Amazon. Two, so that I can be sure of having one in each of my winter jackets.
“It worries me very much that even the German state does not know who is here.”
The German media have been keen to stress a decrease in violent attacks, but police statistics show that they are actually on the rise.
In November the German Federal Police admitted that there had been a massive increase in crime in 2016 over the previous year’s figures, a direct result of chancellor Merkel’s open border fantasy.
