But there was one development that had not been expected, and was not tolerable: the large and growing incidence of sexual assaults committed by refugees against local women. These were not of the cultural-misunderstanding-date-rape sort, but were vicious, no-preamble attacks on random girls and women, often committed by gangs or packs of young men. At first, the incidents were downplayed or hushed up—no one wanted to provide the right wing with fodder for nationalist agitation, and the hope was that these were isolated instances caused by a small problem group of outliers. As the incidents increased, and because many of them took place in public or because the public became involved either in stopping the attack or in aiding the victim afterwards, and because the courts began issuing sentences as the cases came to trial, the matter could no longer be swept under the carpet of political correctness. And with the official acknowledgment and public reporting, a weird and puzzling footnote emerged. Most of the assaults were being committed by refugees of one particular nationality: by Afghans.
According to Austrian police statistics, Syrian refugees cause fewer than 10 percent of sexual assault cases. Afghans, whose numbers are comparable, are responsible for a stunning half of all cases.
Public swimming pools are confronted with epidemics of young Afghan men who think it a good idea to expose themselves, whipping off their pants and standing there until tackled by the lifeguards and removed from the premises with orders to never return.
So imagine my feelings when I read this:
Today, there’s a good chance some of the new Afghan refugees will end up right here, calling North Carolina home. Cities like Durham are ready and willing.
“Let me be clear. In Durham, we will take them in. We will resettle them here. We will support them in every way we can. We will embrace them and we will love them,” Durham Mayor Steve Schewel said at a recent press conference outside City Hall.
Oh golly gee, North Carolina is gonna get culturally enriched so hard because the Woke mayor of the Wokest city in the Wokest county in the state wants to virtue signal.
