I’m old enough to remember how the right-wing blogs were mocked and ridiculed for reporting how so many of the Syrian refugees seemed to be single young males and how odd this was, and how it might be a problem for the countries they were flooding into.
In fact, the Right Scoop wrote all about it:
- United Nations says 72% of Syrian “refugees” are MEN, only 13% are children!
- WATCH an ARMY of young Muslim males MARCH through tiny Slovenia on their way to Germany!
- Notice anything ODD in this video of ‘Syrian Refugees’?
- Hungarian Prime Minister says Syrian migrants look MORE LIKE AN ARMY than refugees!
Canada even announced that they would not accept unaccompanied males, and still they mocked the conservative blogs.
But hey look, now that Germany suffered a terrible mass sexual assault by “Arab and Northern African” males on New Year’s Eve, all of a sudden Politico discovers what we’ve been saying for months:
Notice though that they had to frame it as “Europe’s Man Problem” and don’t mention refugees in the headline. Brilliant.
Here’s an excerpt:
As many governments, including in the United States, debate how many migrants to accept onto their shores, they would be wise to take gender balance into consideration. That might sound sexist on the surface, but years of research has shown that male-dominated societies are less stable, because they are more susceptible to higher levels of violence, insurgence and mistreatment of women. In Germany, scores of women recently reported being attacked on New Year’s Eve by men whom the authorities describe as of “North African or Arabic” descent. While it is not yet known whether the alleged perpetrators were migrants, the attacks may finally be alerting policymakers to the risks of a male-dominated migration wave. Why would European societies, many of which rank highest on global measures of gender equality and stability and peace, jeopardize those hard-won and enviable rankings?
Well, better late than never I guess.
