German refugee aid organiser
admits she got it wrong on immigration
This is an illuminating article on a very nice, well-meaning woman who did her best to help what she considered to be people fleeing real difficulties to come to Germany.
She has changed her view diametrically. After this article was widely spread the lady denounced it as "fake news" but the follow-up article on this does an excellent job of pointing out the inconsistencies in her objections. She has yet to explain her issues with the original piece below and we might reasonably infer that she has simply felt something of a backlash from associates and authorities. Given what we know of the attitudes of those seeking to bring in refugees and of the German authorities this is very likely.
Her statements here are a translation of a translation based on a Polish media interview so perhaps there have been some errors. Overall though, the piece is so jarring one cannot believe that the all her words were mistranslated. The overall message is one similar to that which we've been hearing for quite some time and so hardly anomalous.
Have a read, you'll see what I mean.
(By the way - this article I have taken on it's own merits. Like every other piece I pass on it does not mean I endorse every opinion, post or news item on that site. I have this attitude to ALL sources, from blogs to giant Media outlets. I am interested only in passing on genuine, useful information regardless of source. If I find out this article is not fair I will let you know. For now the writer seems to be doing his best to be fair and the story itself is entirely consistent with what we have picked up elsewhere concerning the subject of Muslim migrants to Europe and the attitudes of authorities there to such migration.)
“It’s too late for Germany”: German feminist SJW admits she got it wrong on immigration, plans to emigrate for her retirement
In 2012 Rebecca Sommer founded the refugee aid association Arbeitsgruppe Flucht + Menschen-Rechte (AG F+M) [Working Group Asylum + Human Rights]. At the end of 2015, this artist, photographer and journalist and documentary maker applauded Angela Merkel’s decision to open German’s borders to the “refugees” who had been blocked in Hungary, despite the vacuum effect this would create. “At that time I wanted to help everyone and truly believed that all these people were fleeing hell and were in a state of complete distress,” the German activist explained in an article published by the conservative Polish weekly Do Rzeczy on 15 January, discussing how she woke up to reality.
In 2015, her NGO had almost 300 volunteers who were giving German courses to the new arrivals.
”I thought their medieval view was going to change with time…but after having seen these situations occur repeatedly and observing what was happening around me, as a volunteer, I have had to recognise that the Muslim refugees have grown up with values that are totally different, they have undergone brainwashing from childhood on and are indoctrinated by Islam and absolutely do not intend to adopt our values. Worse, they regard we infidels with disdain and arrogance.”
“It was a jarring perception when I noticed that these people I had helped, who were eating, drinking, dancing and laughing with me, who didn’t pray, who didn’t go to the mosque, who didn’t respect Ramadan, who made fun of religion and deeply religious people, called me ‘the stupid German whore’ when they were eating my food and were in my garden.”
…Rebecca Sommer says she is not an isolated case, that many other volunteers also came ultimately to have the same perception and that there are now far fewer volunteers ready to work with the new arrivals today in Germany. She also acknowledges that, through their numbers, these Muslim immigrants pose a threat to the German way of life, and that this will get worse with family reunification.
She also told the Polish weekly magazine Do Rzeczy that she personally knows Germans who are getting ready to emigrate to Poland because they had have enough, and she added: “If Poland and Hungary do not give in on this question, you could become countries that some Germans and French will flee to. You could become islands of stability in Europe.”
Islands of stability but also democracy because Rebecca Sommer also notes that democracy no longer really exists in Germany….When the human rights activists wanted to denounce forced conversions to Islam in Indonesia, her account was blocked.
This Berlin woman no longer dares to go out on her own on New Year’s Eve and she has already been attacked five times by men speaking Arabic!
She thinks it is already too late for Germany and she plans to emigrate for her retirement. Political Islam is present everywhere, including in the government, in political parties, in the police and schools. With family reunification, millions of additional Muslim immigrants are going to come. In the German capital where she lives, entire districts are already dominated by the Muslim community which forms a parallel society.
UPDATE: Rebecca Sommer has responded to this article, claiming it is “fake news”, without specifying what she means by that. See this follow-up article (link).
