German government officials are now starting to sound like radical Islamists, according to a UKIP politician.
The charge comes following the events in Cologne on New Year’s Eve when nearly 100 women were attacked by over 1000 men of Arab and African appearance.
Following the attacks some German officials suggested the women were partly to blame and should do more to prevent themselves being attacked by men in future.
The mayor of Cologne Henriette Reker has since suggested a code of conduct for German women that includes an instruction on how German women should behave around these men of “Arab or North African appearance”, and includes staying at arm’s length away from strangers, remaining in their own groups, and asking bystanders for help or at least act as witnesses to any assault.
Ms Reker added that “visitors” from “other cultures” should be taught what is and what is not acceptable behaviour in Germany, suggesting she believes most if not all the perpetrators were migrants.
Reacting to news of the German authority’s response, UKIP MEP and national spokesman Louise Bours said: “With this utterly misogynistic opinion, is it any wonder the German authorities don’t mind opening their doors to a million potential radical Islamists, they are starting to sound like them, they seem to share the same opinion about women and their bodies.
“It is not the fault of the women, that this took place, it is the fault of those men that have no respect for women and see them as having no rights and no status in society. Women should not have to learn how to act in-front of foreign men visiting the country.
“If you didn’t know already it was said by Reker you would be entirely forgiven for thinking it had come out of the mouth of a jihadi, ready to throw gay people off buildings and stone to death any adulterers. (Only the female of course, the man gets a pat on the back and is free to do it again)
“If Donald Trump had said it, you’d see another petition from right-on lefties calling for him to be banned from visiting Britain. Where’s the petition to ban Reker from the UK? “What does this teach young women about their place in society? “The most outrageous element is that I don’t even think the mayor believes what she is saying, I think it is an effort to pass the buck of blame onto the women themselves, so the authorities don’t have to admit they put the safety and security of their own citizens at risk, to pursue their own multiculturalism ideology.”
Since the attacks both Sweden and Denmark has reinstated border controls ditched under the EU’s Schengen agreement.
Ms Bours added: “Of course the biggest worry for me now is that to get rid of these sex abusers all Germany has to do is give them a German passport, and because of the freedom of movement rules David Cameron likes so much, they would be free to come and live here.”
