Angela Merkel is considered out of office after next year's election. France's Hollande is also a man marked as a has-been. David Cameron is now shaking in his boots, hoping that Brexit won't take place, while the UK media and pundits try to convince Britons that a "stay" vote is the only sensible choice.

All of the EU is now being ruled by unelected Brussels bureaucrats trying desperately to hang onto their high-paying jobs and preferential tax statuses. They care less than nothing about the people of the EU. This is feudalism all over again. Merkel, Hollande, Cameron and the rest are impotent, doing what Brussels decrees in order to hold onto power. This is about much more than the migrants.

This will not end well.

So just so I am clear here when I mention a story of little Jimmy shooting Tommy in the face with pro NRA dad's gun I am told it's an abberation, millions of gun owners keep guns in the home daily without incident. But when 3 Muslims act this way we throw out that line of reasoning and condemn every Muslim refuge.

Sounds about right.

We don't condemn all Muslims. We also don't deny that Muslims are the problem of our day. I agree with Trump. Unless and until we have a better means of vetting out troublemakers and terrorists, ban middle east Muslims from coming here because they are the ones causing the problem.

This isn't about us "banning Muslims". It's about us demanding better investigations. Any middle eastern Muslim that we already know isn't a problem shouldn't be banned from travel. Our open border policy was never meant to be a suicide mission.

This happens at every concert venue in America. And bus. And subway. You don't hear about it because women know that nothing will be done if they go to the police. I speak from experience, and with much worse examples in my own history.

Such things always struck me as rarer in Europe. I have no doubt that many of the refugees the problem. Trauma begets trauma and all that jazz (not an excuse - they should still be prosecuted). But the *only* reason you're hearing about this is because it's refugees. You didn't hear about the dozens of women, including one of my best friends, who were groped at Boston Calling last weekend. In fact, few probably even reported it, unfortunately.

New Year's eve was six months ago, these refugees have had ample time to get the memo. It appears they don't care and that's alarming. What a mess.
Of course they don't care. They're in an environment that is virtually consequence-free and they don't have to work for anything...it's all handed to them. Why mess with success?

Stop accepting endless amounts of people from countries where this sort of behavior is condoned?


It shouldnt be shocking that when you bring in a ****load of single young men from repressive cultures where women are seen as less than equal and are required to cover themselves up in basically burlap sacks because the men are taught it isnt their own responsibility to control their lust, that these things happen.


Germany and Sweden right now are like the crazy cat ladies of the world, bringing in more refugees than they can realistically support or assimilate and their own citizens are paying the price for it.

Those who create immigration policies rarely do their home work. In parts of India for instance gang rape or singular rape is common practice....especially when it comes to poor disadvantaged woman. There is little consequence to defiling someone of the lower cast.

When these young immigrant men view modern westernized woman they see them as woman of ill repute...no different than prostitutes. So they think they are unprotected - and their is no consequence to the defilement of these females....and in Liberal Europe they are right...these woman have no protection from these barbarians.

What should be done is that the usual suspects should be rounded up without trial...handcuffed put on a military air craft and deposited from whence they came...dump them. What a weak place Europe has become- where raping and pillaging is condoned. In an earlier time the men of the nation would have simply mounted up after sharpening their swords and quickly dispensed of this curse and insult to their daughters and wives....swift retribution....why not?

So the idiots in Europe are so mindlessly progressive that they hand these chumps a welfare check and say go do what you want....paid rapists? Give me a break.

Remember the thread where the unruly student lit a cigar in class, walked up to the teacher and blew smoke in his face? Nobody posted something stupid like, "Well, adults do disrespectful things, too!!"

Yet some of you come up with the same lame type of justification whenever this issue is brought up.

I don't know if you're ignorant about what's happening globally in every country where a large number of Muslims from that part of the world* have been allowed in, or you just don't care, but either way, it's galling.

*Before the idiots start with their "You hate Muslims" mantra, note the distinction, and look up my history of defense when it comes to American Muslims.

I was just in germany for two weeks (in the beginning of may) . You would be surprised by how many germans I talked to that said they they are welcoming for the refugees because of what the Germans did in WWII. Its like they have been brainwashed. I talked to about a half dozen and all were in support of helping them.

In Berlin, My wife and I were going to dinner at the Alexander Platz (radio tower) we were walking up and there were a group of middle eastern guys drinking (8-10) They were pretty scary looking . My wife was dressed modestly and wasn't revealing at all . These guys literally were staring at her very scarily. I stared right back at them and made direct eye contact. After they seen me looking back they looked away. I said to myself...I wonder what happens if a girl walks by without a guy ...
