What is Going on?
In Cologne Germany, over the Christmas holiday, there were "unsubstantiated" reports of "Arab looking" men in small roving gangs harassing, assaulting, and in some cases, raping individual or small groups of women. German Police have just recently confirmed these "unsubstantiated" reports as being accurate. In nearby Wuppertal, roving patrols of "Sharia Police" in nice bright orange security vests, spot checking women---Moslem and non-Moslem--to ensure they were "Sharia" compliant. Aside from the slight physical and verbal intimidation factor, these individuals attempt to force women (and in certain cases, men) into compiling with the "proper" dress code.
The German Government had already requested that German school girls cease wearing shorts, short skirts and "revealing tops" in order to avoid "offending" the Moslem population. In addition, the German Government has requested "volunteers" to help clean refugee camps, including doing laundry, running errands, serving food, cleaning, and so forth. Failure to comply may result in a mandatory one year hitch in the German Armed Forces. Scandinavia has been reporting an huge increase in crimes, especially assaults and rapes . At first, the Governments of Demark, Norway, and Sweden, denied there was any such crimes being committed, however, thanks to the Internet, these governments have forced to admit these crimes are happening, and in far greater numbers than originally assumed.
You know, 25 years ago, there were a small Moslem presence in this country and certainly the West and this simply didn't happen. Ten years ago, the presence increased but still this was rarely an issue. Even five years ago, still not so much. Nowadays, however, that's all changed. We're being told---not asked----to comply with demands; to do away with not just the traditions which have been a part of this nation since its founding, but that have been a part of Western tradition for thousands of years! Here in the US, we never heard Jews making demands, nor the Hindus or Buddhist, Taoists, Wiccans or Pagans. Meanwhile, Europe, especially Germany, Holland, Belgium, Scandinavia, and most especially England has been doing some serious butt kissing to these new invaders (the last Islamic invasion of Europe in 1490 which reached---literally---the gates of Vienna Austria. The Moslem Turks didn't surrender territories north of the Danube River until 1699. Parts of Southeast Europe remained under Ottoman influence, which didn't end until the close of World War I in 1918 (Greece, the birthplace of Democracy, was ruled by the Moslem Turks from 1453 until its revolution of independence against the Ottomans in 1821). Frankly, I don't see why the native inhabitants haven't been asking on bended knee for permission to stay from their new Overlords to stay.
America is a country founded on the concept of freedom with all its rights and corresponding responsibilities. It gives you the right to speak your mind. It doesn't give you the right to force me to change my beliefs, our common language, our accepted traditions--secular and religious, or our sense of individually just to make you feel happy. If at any time you feel "offended" by these, you have two options in my opinion. You can adapt and become a part of this terrific melting pot called the United States of America. Otherwise, feel free to visit any Greyhound bus station, airport, or US interstate and go to wherever you think you would feel more comfortable because no matter how much we may squabble amongst ourselves, we are Americans first and foremost, and that isn't going to change.
