Angela Merkel should take personal responsibility for Germany’s problem with migrant sex assaults, says AfD politician Hugh Bronson. He spoke to British blogger Westmonster.
Bronson, a member of Berlin’s House of Representatives said the “safe zone” for women at the German capital’s New Year’s Eve celebrations to protect them from sexual assaults, was created because more than a thousand women had complained about being raped or sexually assaulted previously, “overwhelmingly” by men from a migrant background.
Bronson slammed the “safe zones” explaining that “the trouble is that it openly admits there’s a problem”.
He added: “By admitting this, they’re accepting the unacceptable – there are areas that now can’t be policed. This shouldn’t be necessary in a country with law and justice.
“It makes you wonder what’s going on outside the safe zones. In previous years people felt free to mingle with the general public. Maybe it’s to do with millions of migrants of Muslim backgrounds who don’t respect women or treat them as equal in British society?
“Of the millions who came to Germany, around two thirds are male and most are aged between 17 and 25-years-old. If we have 500 000 or so young men in their prime without any female contact, of course they’re going to snap.
“Merkel has allowed this to happen and there are consequences. She is responsible. She is the woman who decided to open the borders in 2015. All this happened because of her.”
Bronson, the deputy national speaker for the AfD in Berlin, said there is now real anger among the general public at the fact that it is no longer possible “to protect our girls and women”.
He said: “The anger and discontent is one of the reasons the AfD is doing well. There have been protests. Some people think this is a war against women and the public are very upset by this.
“It’s a defining issue for Germany. The mainstream media is trying to cover it up but everyone sees what’s happening. It’s all anyone talks about on buses, on public transport or out in public.”
Bronson believes rejected asylum seekers should be deported immediately, even if such migrants refuse to reveal where they came from.
“Denmark is a good example here. They have detention centres where they can sit until they remember where they’re from. Also, check their phones, see their call register. The country they call most is probably the country they come from,” Bronson said.
The German people are increasingly of the view that Angela Merkel’s political career has peaked and her best days of behind her, according to a new poll.
Some 67 percent of German voters believe Merkel has to go following a disastrous election. She has not yet managed to put together a governing coalition.
A majority of Germans also reject the idea of a new coalition between Merkel and the unpopular former Eurocrat Martin Schulz’s socialist party the SPD.
