A Mayor in the German town of Bad Schlema prompted fury when he responded to a grandfather’s concern about young girls being sexually harassed by migrants by responding; “don’t provoke them”.
The exchange occurred during a raucous municipal council meeting last week which ended with residents demanding the Mayor step down over his comments.
With public opinion on the 1.1 million migrants Germany has taken in over the last year souring after the mass molestation of women in Cologne, a grandfather stood up at the council meeting to ask Mayor Jens Müller, of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party, whether measures would be taken to stop the harassment.
“I have a question regarding the school… about Physical education in the school gym”, the man stated . “My Granddaughter, she’s under ten — and it’s also happened in a nearby town, that’s right — the girls have been harassed by the refugee ‘children’, the ‘asylum seekers’.”
“They get harassed from the windows [of the shelter] and things like that. How will this be in the summer? When the School girls wear less clothing?” he asked.
“That’s easy; just don’t provoke them and don’t walk in these areas”, the Mayor responded.
The rest of the attendees immediately began booing, but the Mayor subsequently doubled down on his idiocy, suggesting that Germans were equally to blame when he commented, “Do you think this [sexual harassment] doesn’t exist among Germans”.
“You’re not allowed to walk in your own city anymore. Go home, boy. Who the hell elected you,” shouted the grandfather. “The migrants come here and we’re not allowed to walk here any more!”
Another woman called for the Mayor to step down as the crowd became increasingly more irate, leading Müller to threaten to call the police and “evacuate” the building.
“It seems that the mood has shifted,” Müller subsequently acknowledged, labeling the incident “scary”.
As we reported back in September last year, schools in German have been sending letters to parents asking them not to let young girls wear shorts or short skirts so as not to provoke “attacks” by migrants staying in nearby “refugee” centers.
One wonders what the next piece of advice German officials will suggest in order to prevent sexual attacks – maybe telling parents to dress their children in a full Burka?
