Interesting to see that the German nationalists have started with the politicians welcoming the invasion and not the invaders:
A German mayoral candidate has been stabbed in the neck, in an attack that is believed to have been because of her support for refugees.
Henriette Reker, who is running for mayor of the city of Cologne as an independent, and one of her aides were left severely injured in the savage assault.
A 44-year-old man sprang on the pair while they were campaigning in the western German city, police said. Three other people were also injured, although not seriously.
Norbert Wagner, head of the police criminal investigation unit in Cologne, said the attack on Reker was ‘targeted and deliberate’.
‘In his plea, he said that he committed this act out of xenophobic motivation,’ Wagner continued.
‘From our initial investigations, we have ascertained that he probably acted alone. So far, we have no knowledge of other people taking part in this sad act.’
Cologne Police Chief Wolfgang Albers said Ms Reker has been involved in the supporting and helping to house refugees in the city.
‘At the moment she is stable, but not out of the woods yet,’ he added.
Germany, a top destination for migrants, expects to receive up to a million new arrivals this year. But many Germans feel that the country cannot cope with the record numbers of refugees.
I would be utterly astonished if Ms Reker is the last German politician to be attacked. No doubt this will inspire a good deal of tongue-clucking and hand-wringing. And no doubt it will make no difference in anyone’s behavior at all.
UPDATE: The politicians are not the only backstabbers in Germany:
A pro-migrant, open borders activist is reported to be “very sad” after being stabbed twice in the back by a gang of “Arabs” as he stood outside a pizzeria in Dresden, east Germany.
Twenty-nine year old ‘Julius G.’ involved himself in political activism while reading his degree in industrial engineering Technical University of Dresden. Now he may have fallen victim to his own politics, as the refugee advocate was attacked while waiting for friends in Dresden’s Neustadt, known as the city’s ‘left wing’, or ‘alternative’ quarter.
Germany’s Bild-Zeitung reports police were called to Pizza 5 on Alaunstraße on Saturday after a group of six to eight men jumped the student in the early hours and stabbed him twice in the back, leaving him in a serious condition. A police spokesman said: “Several police vans searched the surrounding area, unfortunately without success. According to witnesses, the attackers were said to be North Africans”.
Stabbed in the back by his own politics. How very fitting. Perhaps he’ll learn, apologize to PEGIDA, and become a spokesman for them. But most likely, he’ll double down. Because that’s what SJWs do.
