I recently ran across some article that just seem to fit together. And while the country wasn’t America, the discussions are certainly ones that have taken place in America.
The article that caught my eye was in an Israeli newspaper. I know, you’re dumbfounded, right?
It’s about a group of German women that are rising up against the government. Quite similar to the American protest in that it’s women protesting their treatment at the hands of men. While American women walk around with silly pink hats on their heads and offensive signs to show how liberated and feminist they are, they protest against (mostly it seems) about the election of a man who “said bad things”. Mind you they do this marching around fully in the daylight and in the open. They know as long as they don’t break any laws they won’t have any problems. So you can tell they are very brave in speaking out. Yes, I’m being sarcastic #NoForcedHijab. Even that paragon of courage Linda Sarsour didn’t go to Iran to support her sisters as they protest having been forced to wear a hijab.
No, the German women’s protest is quite different.
|Protesting something male related?||Yep|
|Signs and youtube videos?||Yep|
|Silly hats and offensive signs?||Nope|
|Protesting something legitimate?||YES, oh HECK YES|
Ahh, think we’ve found the difference. German women rise up
‘Because of your immigration policies, we soon face a majority of young men who come from archaic societies with no women’s rights.’
A study commissioned by the German government using data from Lower Saxony concluded that migrants “may be responsible” for most of Germany’s recent rise in violent crime. More than 90% of the increase was attributed to young male migrants.
“Because of your immigration policies, we are facing soon a majority of young men who come from archaic societies with no women’s rights. You knew that, and you accepted it. You knew that, you accepted it, and you abandoned us. You sacrificed us.”
A Pew study found that the Muslim population in Europe will continue to grow in the coming decades even if migration to the continent is completely halted.
“It can’t go on like this. Pepper spray and pocket alarms are already the basic equipment of European women. Going jogging has become the most dangerous sport for us.
The average decibel of the average pocket alarm is 120 db. How loud is that?
|110||Extremely loud||Rock concert, chainsaw|
|120||Human voice at its loudest, police siren|
|140||Pain threshold||First Monday of the month siren from close by|
So, it’s kind of like screaming in terror, except maybe the alarm can do it longer? Especially if the throat screaming for help is cut or a hand/s is/are clapped over the mouth doing the screaming for help.
Pepper spray, the other piece of standard equipment. How far will it spray? How long? Depends.
Regular pepper spray that probably most of the German women, and indeed European women sound like they are carrying are about a half ounce and will spray from 5 to 35 seconds with a reach of 5 to 12 feet. And you hope the wind isn’t against you. But you can get a foam spray.
You could go with bear pepper spray. With that you will get almost a 8 oz can, but it while it will only last 8 seconds, it will go 16 feet. Yeah, I’m not liking this one either.
What if the wind is against you, or more come after the fight ensues?
Now I’m sure they would prefer you do the “civilized” thing in a country that is becoming most uncivilized towards women. Just “call the police”. From this report the time till your emergency call is answered is 3 to less than 30 seconds. Response time seems to range from 8 to 15 minutes, a quarter of an hour. You know, a quarter of an hour is a long time to wait while you scream at the top of your lungs for help and watch as your pepper spray is empty and your attackers are now pissed. And still there, just out of reach of the pepper spray. They in the meantime have used their cellphones to “phone a friend”. Think you will still be there 12 minutes later when the police arrive?
Which brings me to the next column I would like to reference, Up In Arms: German Small Arms Ownership Soars 85% In Under 2 Years
Two years after your chancellor decides to admit over 1 million undocumented middle-eastern immigrants to boost the economy and instead gets a series of terrorist attacks in return, this is the outcome: “Germans are taking up arms of angst.”
There is a growing feeling that the state cannot sufficiently protect its citizens and therefore they must protect themselves. Recent cuts to the police force contributed to the problem.
No kidding? Ya think?
But Germany has very strict gun control laws, to keep everyone safe, of course. So they can pretty much only buy non-lethal weapons. But as in America, there are those that are telling the women that getting a gun is not the way to go.
However, Holger Stahlknecht, state interior minister in Saxony-Anhalt, isn’t convinced. He worries about the current trend and warns that arming oneself with small weapons can lead to a false sense of security. “Obviously, people believe they are buying safety with a small gun license,” he said.
“However, this sense of security is deceptive, since these weapons could escalate a situation and could even be used against the owner.”
Well, #1 Old Holger Stahlknecht is a government minister. And as I recall from another column I did, the government doesn’t appreciate anyone speaking out publicly against their “poor refugees”. So. And #2, Old Holger IS a man. Not so sure he is in sync here with the women who fear attack from his government’s policies.
Now I’ve heard the 9mm is called the European .45, so lets just look at the 9mm caliber cartridge. Looks like it’s roughly 980 to 1600 ft/sec.
Huh, how about that. And it doesn’t matter which way the wind is blowing, it’s unlikely to end up in your face. There is a good chance once you produce the delivery mechanism they may decide to go for easier pickings. Like maybe Old Holger, or Nanny Angela Merkel? Oh, wait no, they have government paid for security. Just women those in the video don’t.
The German government killed 6 million Jews, and 5 million dissents, gays, gypsies and assorted others. Now the German government chose to import millions of people that threaten the lives, liberty and way of life in Germany. Maybe some day the German government will learn, not all things are the same. Maybe some day they will learn to tell good from evil, right from wrong. Today apparently, isn’t that day.
There are a variety of ways to respond to the threats, it’s your call.
