What is West in Life?

Let us weep for the West.

Apparently we're doomed?

Pupils at the Herder school in Kassel, Germany have been subjected to months of sexual assault by “much older” migrant males on their way to and from school, dating back as far as September 2015. The three girls aged between 16 and 18 were repeatedly touched inappropriately and verbally abused, but they refused to report the incidents to the police or their school because the perpetrators were “refugees”.

German newspaper the Hessian Niedersächsische Allgemeinereports the girls realised the “social-political” implications of their reporting their crimes, with the significant amount of press attention swirling around migrant sex assault, leading to them becoming what the paper identified as “paralysed by political correctness”.

One of the girls, identified by the pseudonym ‘Anna’, said of their decision to suppress the sex attacks: “We do not want refugees to be discriminated against. We do not want people making sweeping accusations [about migrants], [and we didn’t want to] foment bad blood”. The school says “many others may have experienced this harassment as well”.

I see I have to quote Mark Steyn again:

I underestimated multiculturalism. After 9/11, I assumed the internal contradictions of the rainbow coalition would be made plain: that a cult of "tolerance" would in the end founder against a demographic so cheerfully upfront in their intolerance. Instead, Islamic "militants" have become the highest repository of multicultural pieties. So you're nice about gays and Native Americans? Big deal. Anyone can be tolerant of the tolerant, but tolerance of intolerance gives an even more intense frisson of pleasure to the multiculti-masochists. And so Islamists who murder non-Muslims in pursuit of explicitly Islamic goals are airbrushed into vague, generic "rebel forces." You can't tell the players without a scorecard, and that's just the way the Western media intend to keep it.

As I commented:

Our multi-cultis are capable of excusing any offense by our enemies and magnifying any flaw on our side to excuse beheadings and honor killings and whatever else our jihadi enemies decide we deserve. When some on our side decide to be nonjudgmental, the sky's the limit for our enemies.

Yet somehow our jihadi enemies must be let down a bit in how little opposition they face in their offensive against our society (our soldiers at least fight, but our society sometimes seems like it is eager to lose the war) which denies them the joy of experiencing what is best in life.

How defeated is the West already when we don't even give our radical Islamist enemies the pleasure of hearing the lamentation of our women? Some of our women (and girls) think they deserve sexual abuse.

Stockholm syndrome has expanded beyond a city to the West in general to a dangerous degree.

It will be interesting to see how the radical feminists riding the campus faux rape crisis will react when Moslem--let alone jihadi--students are the accused. Irresistible force and immovable object, and all that.

Well, not interesting as much as horrifying. And as Germany shows, I think I know how our Left will react to that conflict between beliefs. They will be honored to be victims.

It's not a clash of civilizations when one civilization doesn't have its heart in the fight.

On the bright side, the West is only one of the civilizations in conflict with the jihadi Islamist world.

UPDATE: Let's complete the tour of screwed-up thinking:

A Dutch woman who told Qatari police she had been drugged and raped in March has been in government detention ever since on unclear charges, a lawyer said Saturday. ...

She was immediately detained after reporting the attack, Lokollo said. She has appeared three times in court and thinks she may face an adultery charge for having sex out of wedlock, he said. The man she reported as her assailant has also been detained, he said.

Yeah, assimilate that.
