As foreign refugees continue to flood into Western Europe, one country in particular stands out for bearing the brunt of the refugee crisis. Germany has embraced more of these people than any other nation in the EU, and it looks like the fabric of their society is beginning to buckle under their weight. This isn’t happening in a cataclysmic sort of way (at least for now), but the crisis is clearly affecting the lives of the average German, and not in a good way.
I’m sure the German government thought that everything would be hunky dory. They probably assumed that these refugees would one day make an excellent cheap labor source to shore up their falling birth rates, and Germany’s citizens would embrace the downtrodden foreigners with open arms. Of course, nothing of this magnitude is ever that simple. You can’t make an omelet without cracking a few eggs, and in this case, the native Germans are the eggs. Here’s what the average German has been dealing with in just the past week:
For starters, Germany is a much more dangerous place since the refugees arrived, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. It was recently revealed that not only have there been numerous rapes and sexual assaults in and around the refugee camps, but the police have been covering up these incidents, so as not to give legitimacy to the critics of Germany’s immigration policy.
According to Kern, women in the camps are being paid 10 euros to have sex with male asylum seekers, who make up 80% of the population in the migrant centers. Guards at the camp are turning a blind eye to the prostitution because they are making money from trafficking drugs and weapons.
The article lists a number of other rapes of German teenagers, including a 14-year-old boy who was raped inside a train carriage by an Arab man, that have been kept secret by police.
Police in the Bavarian town of Mering also warned parents not to allow their children to go outside unaccompanied after a 16-year-old girl was raped on September 11 by a “dark-skinned man speaking broken German” as she walked home from the train station, which is situated near a migrant camp.
“Dozens of other cases of rape and attempted rape — cases in which police are specifically looking for foreign perpetrators (German police often refer to them as Südländer, or “southerners”) — remain unresolved,” writes Kern.
And since Germany is already a densely populated nation, the influx of these refugees is beginning to displace the people who already live there. One 51-year-old nurse has been kicked out of her apartment of 16 years, to make way for refugees in the small town of Nieheim.
“I was completely shocked and I can’t even begin to find the words to describe how the city has treated me,” Halbey told the German publication. “I have had to go through a lot of difficulties recently, and then I get this notice. It was like a kick in the teeth.”
Halbey will have until May 2016 to find a new place to live, along with her dog and her cat. The three-story building, where she rented a 90 sq/m flat will now be turned into accommodation for refugees, who are seeking to make Germany their new home.
The mayor of Nieheim, Rainer Vidal, which has a population of just over 6,000, defended the decision to send the nurse packing, saying converting the building would be “the cheapest option.”
“A new residential unit for 30 refugees in Nieheim would cost €30,000 ($33,600). This solution will cost me nothing,”he told Die Welt.
But ultimately, the greatest threat to Germany isn’t the refugees themselves. It’s the sensitive PC culture that has gained such a strong foothold in the country. Now merely expressing a negative opinion of the refugees could have severe consequences for the average German family.
Germans who make racist anti-migrant posts could have their children snatched by the state and be fired from their jobs, according to the German Lawyers’ Association.
In an article entitled Racism and parenting: Threatening loss of custody?, lawyer Eva Becker, Chair of the Working Group on Family Law in the German Bar Association, outlines the conditions under which “xenophobic” Facebook posts could lead to parents being targeted.
Although Becker asserts that merely opposing the settlement of migrants in Germany would not lead to parental rights being terminated, such views could easily lead to someone being fired from their job.
Expressing a desire for violence against the migrants would constitute evidence enough for a family court to remove children from the home, according to Becker.
While this appears to be a high bar, idle threats of violence are made by countless people on the Internet every day, with the vast majority going completely unpunished.
This is exactly how great nations die out. Historically, immigrants and refugees don’t always pose a problem for sovereign nations. Even if the foreigners come from a culture that is wildly different from that of their new home, they can eventually assimilate into the fabric of that society. But any country that sacrifices the rights, safety, and culture of their own people in the name of sensitivity to another culture, is not long for this Earth.
