    “Cologne Against Right – Antifascist Action Committee” has announced that on New Year’s Eve, they will watch the police to prevent “racial profiling” against immigrants.

    Köln Gegen Rechts/Antifaschistisches Aktionsbündnis said “racial profiling was illegal and the “genderless” citizens would be watching the police instead.

    The group believes that in order to prevent an episode of mass sexual harrasment, also called taharrush, of New Year’s Eve 2015 from being repeated, women no longer need to be protected by law enforcement.

    In 2016 police had stopped thousands of male, young “Nafris” from entering the square at the famous Cathedral in the city.

    “Thousands of visitors to downtown were singled out because of the colour of their skin, their assumed nationality, and their religious beliefs. They were apprehended and presented to the public as a catch in the glaring floodlights of the Main Train Station Square,” the Antifa group complained in a statement.

    The irony of deferred victimhood has escaped Antifa, as ethnically, the “Nafris” – the police abbreviation for a specific group of young, criminal, Northern African illegal migrants – where responsible for the mass assaults in Cologne on women in 2015 because of a lacking police presence.

    “Security to a long and healthy life, a secure income, a secure job, safety from pollution and destruction of the environment, security for our citizens’ rights, the security that police and intelligence services play by the rules, and, last but not least, the security to be protected from racial and gender-specific discrimination,” Antifa continued in their statement, but strangely the security of women is not mentioned once.

    For New Year’s Eve 2017, Antifa will be observing and recording the police, and has expressed no concern for the safety of female visitors.

    They have called upon citize*nnesses – genderless citizens – to do the same, citing the hashtag #copwatchcgn

    Notably most critical comments on their Facebook page have been deleted, but a few have remained. One poster wanted to know: “Why don’t you watch the women instead? Then the officers could stay home and celebrate with their families.”

    The Associated Press reported that France alone, almost 100 000 police and soldiers have been deployed for the holiday season, citing fears of the jihadist threat.

    The Interior Ministry said in a statement that in addition to Christmas security, the ministry said extra policing was ordered around religious sites during Hanukkah as well as for Orthodox Christmas in January.

    In Hungary, president Viktor Orban vowed in his annual Christmas message that Hungary will not “retreat behind concrete blocks” at Christmas and watch women and daughters being “harassed in the New Year’s Eve crowd” as in Germany.

    “Christianity is culture and civilization. We live in it. It is not about how many people go to church or how many pray honestly. Culture is the reality of everyday life… Christian culture defines our everyday morals,” wrote the Fidesz leader, in an article published in Magyar Idok.
