New Year’s Eve was a horrifying night for scores of women in the German city of Cologne, as large crowds of Middle Eastern and North African migrant men, mostly Muslim, robbed and sexually assaulted them.
And yet, in the aftermath, there was scarcely a whimper to be heard from feminists around the world.
Dr. Gina Loudon, co-author of “What Women Really Want,” said this feminist silence is likely due to the fact that the perpetrators of the crimes were Muslims, including many recently arrived refugees.
Feminists and Muslims are part of the same leftist coalition, she noted, so feminists cannot criticize Islamic violence against women.
“They whine about a so-called ‘Republican war on women’ but neglect to mention the rapes, sexual assaults, and other crimes committed against women in what is evidently an official, organized, adherent Islamic war on Western women,” Loudon told WND.
“Where is the outrage? Where are the burning bras? Where are the Code Pink protests? They can’t say a word. Women are silenced in America, lest they risk their statist street cred.”
Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and author of “Stop the Islamization of America,” agreed feminists are more concerned with their leftist ideology than with the actual well-being of women.
“This is consistent with feminist denial of Islamic honor killings, FGM, forced marriage, child marriage, misogyny, et cetera under Islam,” said Geller, a WND columnist. “The feminists’ cause is not actually ‘feminism’ or ‘women’ – rather, their cause is leftism, statism, and collectivism. Islam is the very definition of statism. There is no unique soul in Islam. Islam is a state.”
Truth be told, feminists have responded to the Cologne sexual assaults – but mostly to deflect blame away from the Islamic migrants who committed the attacks.
The mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker, blamed the victims, saying women and girls “need to be better prepared” to defend themselves from assaults in the future.
Tanja, a feminist activist who organized a protest in Mulheim, Germany, claimed German women have been suffering sexual assaults long before the refugees arrived. She declared that “German-born men also harass and rape.”
Many feminists directed their outrage at the people who expressed outrage at the assaults. Feminist writer Laurie Penny titled her essay in the New Statesman, “After Cologne, we can’t let the bigots steal feminism.”
She chastised “Islamophobes and xenophobes” for using the Cologne attacks to demonize Muslim migrants while not caring about “rape culture” when non-Muslims are the perpetrators.
In a similar vein, feminist protest leader Inna Shevchenko issued this warning to her comrades in the International Business Times: “If feminists and liberals remain silent, xenophobes will write their own history.”
Loudon, a WND columnist, wishes more people would break their silence because she believes coordinated sexual attacks like those in Cologne will make their way to the United States soon, given that the Obama administration wants to let in hordes of Middle Eastern refugees.
Right now, she said, it looks as if only conservatives will have the courage to discuss the assaults if and when they occur.
“[Ann-Marie Murrell, Morgan Brittany, and I] argued in our book ‘What Women Really Want’ not only is there no Republican war on women, but it appears that if women are to be saved from such attacks in the future, the only ones promising to fight for them are, in fact, conservatives in the GOP field of nominees,” Loudon said.
She noted there was virtually no mention of the Cologne attacks in last Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate, indicating the party that claims to be for women’s rights is actually more concerned with appeasing Muslims.
“If women want to know who really has their backs in this next election, they need to look no further than the adherent Islamic War on Women and the cover-up by former feminists, Democrat politicians, media, and activists,” Loudon declared. “Women who don’t like to be raped or sexually assaulted should vote GOP en masse.”
