German Politician stabbed by anti-immigrant assailant


Henriette Reker, candidate for Colongne Mayor, was stabbed by a man who took umbrage with her support for Merkel’s immigration policy

The continued colonization migration of displaced, able-bodied Muslim men from Syria and other failing states to Western Europe continues unabated. In their rush to not appear xenophobic, European leaders and their populace find their resources stretched to the breaking point and the backlash has begun. Three immigration centers in Sweden have been attacked by arsonists in just one week. There have been numerous arson attacks in Germany as well.

Henriette Reker, an independent mayoral candidate backed by Chancellor Angela Merkel was stabbed and seriously wounded by a man who was open in his anti-immigrant views.

from The Christian Science Monitor:

Henriette Reker was stabbed in the neck at a campaign stand set up by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats at a market. Her condition was stable, police chief Wolfgang Albers said.

Reker is an independent candidate in Sunday’s election for the new mayor of Germany’s fourth-biggest city, but is backed by Merkel’s conservatives and two other parties. The 58-year-old currently heads Cologne’s social affairs and integration department, and is responsible for refugee housing.

The suspected assailant, a 44-year-old German national and Cologne resident who said he had been unemployed for several years, told officials that he targeted Reker and that “he wanted to and did commit this act because of anti-foreigner motives,” Wagner said. He added that the man appeared to have acted alone and had no police record.

Things are going to get worse before they get better, if they ever do. Despots such as Putin, the Iranian Mullahs, and the Saudi Monarchy, while they are fighting each other, also see the chaos that they unleash as simultaneously damaging the West, and the more they sew the seeds of discord, the less the Europeans (and us) can respond in a coherent and effective manner. While their motivations might be different, they all see the nightmare that is unfolding as a feature and not a bug.

    The assailant should be referred to by the proper name, “German Patriot”.

    1. Hi Franz, thanks for reading.

      From a news reporting point of view I am playing this as straight as I can. The word Patriot would be crossing a line in terms of advocacy of a cause beyond the scope of this blog. As a general rule our advocacy mission is limited to the U.S. Bill of Rights, most importantly the Second and First Amendments.

      However, I am open in my editorial position that Islamists are establishing a beachhead in Europe with the stated long-game of domination of the local populace.

      My last name is Aalders. My father emigrated from Holland to the US in the late 60s. I have a brother and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins in my ancestral homeland. I have a deep concern for the future and believe that Islamism represents an existential threat to Europe.

        Have you spoken with those aunts, uncles, and cousins about the “existential threat” of Islamism?
        Strange that every European that I talk to who doesn’t have an outright, unabashed hatred of anyone brown, doesn’t see this massive, massive threat.

    2. Grindstone says:

      I believe the word you’re looking for is “Arschloch”.

      -3rd gen German/Northern European-American.

  2. Spencer says:

    Someday very soon I expect to learn about disgruntled young Islamists who forced their way into Western Europe exacting serious revenge on the countries that allowed them asylum. When–not if–that happens the donkeys who promoted this foolish knee-jerk custom will disappear and never be held accountable.

  3. Bolt says:

    I can hear the goose steps coming. Europe better get these psychos under control.

    1. Grindstone says:

      I can see the far-right using Islam as an excuse for the reprise of Nazism. I’ve already seen it here in the US. Especially from those who claim to be “pro-freedom”.
