Migrant sexually assaults a leftist political icon in Cologne

It happened in broad daylight, in the middle of "colourful", cosmopolitan, multi-cultural Cologne. Cologne’s assistant mayor Elfi Scho-Antwerpes (67) was confronted with the harsh reality of a society that lacks universally accepted values. The well-known politician from Cologne quickly called... the police.

    The well-known Social Democratic Party of Germany representative, who was also a member of the Bundestag for a time, had been walking through the cathedral city. Fortunately for her, the forces of law and order were not far away – one scream was enough to alert them.

    But what happens to ordinary women who do not travel with a large entourage in the city? All they can do is call 110 and hope that help will arrive in time.

    One New Year’s Eve in 2015, help from the police did not arrive in time for thousands of women who were being sexually assaulted by migrants. Two-thirds of the identified 153 suspects in Cologne of various sexual crimes were originally from Morocco or Algeria, 44 percent were asylum seekers, another 12 percent were illegally in Germany, 3 percent were underaged migrants.

    This is possibly why the politician did not venture out alone without a security detail on Friday evening when the assault took place at Mauritiuswall, on the corner of Schaafenstraße.

    Scho-Antwerpes has become a victim herself of the policy of open borders of her party – joining the plight of many women in Germany. But she nevertheless expressed surprise at the assault.

    Scho-Antwerpes had attended the Christoper Street Day parade for the LGBT community. This day was originally created to fight for the rights of homosexuals, but ironically this same group has been totally silent when it comes to the rights of women.

    Moreover, she was being groped by migrants, young men who were not interested in practicing social distancing nor in wearing masks.

    “When I pointed this out, one of them came at me with a crazy look in his eyes. Our nose tips touched and suddenly he touched my breast. It was incomprehensible,” she said.

    Even though at first she called the perpetrators “young men”, she did not reserve this polite description for the man who had grabbed her breast. According to Scho-Antwerpes, he was a gender-specific “immigrant” – a man.

    “I then called in policemen nearby for help. The perpetrator could be identified immediately. […] It was a man around 30, apparently with an immigrant background. The man didn’t even apologize,” she complained.

    It is quite rare for a leftist politician to point out that a suspect is from an immigrant background. Until recently, they were called members of the “party scene”. But being a victim herself, Scho-Antwerpes, did not hesitate to describe the suspect quite clearly.

    Cologne mayor Henriette Reker in a press conference had previously categorically stated that there were no indications of “refugees” being among the perpetrators of the sexual assaults and that presumptions of that sort were “completely intolerable” and she judged it “completely improper (…) to link a group that appeared to come from North Africa with the refugees” who had arrived in record numbers in Germany in the year 2015.

    German political scientist Klaus Schroeder in an interview on 6 January 2016 confirmed that mainstream German newspapers and public broadcasters also refused to name the perpetrators who had sexually assaulted thousands of women in Cologne and other cities, to avoid driving the public “into the hands of extreme right”.

    The police meanwhile confirmed to German tabloid Bild that sexual harassment charges had been brought against a man (34) who had groped the assistant mayor. The Kölnische Rundschau had first reported on the incident.

    Unlike the victims of 2015 who were discouraged from speaking out, Scho-Antwerpes said she wanted to speak “openly” about the attack. “I will go public to encourage women to defend themselves in situations like this and not fear the consequences.”

    Unsurprisingly, the incident deeply marked Scho-Antwerpes: “Experiencing something like this is a drastic experience, simply ugly. I am deeply hurt. You don’t count on such a disrespectful attack.”
