When will we wake up? We’re learning that German newspapers smothered news accounts of a widespread, planned attack by mobs (estimated to be around 1,000) of Muslim men on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany. Over 100 women reported assaults that night.
But what we’re not being told is the rising rape of female taxi passengers in New York City. (Hat-tip Shoebat.com). It is thought that 50-90% of NYC cab drivers are from South Asian or Middle Eastern countries, the majority of whom are Muslims.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is warning Big Apple women to think twice about late-night taxi rides as sexual assault by NYC cabbies is on the rise. Since most NYC residents don’t have cars and rely solely on taxis this is a problem. And as usual the onus is on the victim: travel in pairs, don’t use taxis at night, be careful coming out of clubs intoxicated, etc. No doubt the next bit of progressive advice will be not to dress provocatively. In other words don’t be asking for it.
Islam teaches that women, unless hidden under a tent and accompanied by a male relative are theirs for the taking. We have to adapt to their culture. Ha! Won’t happen here, baby.
I suggest that women arm themselves however they can. Concealed carry would be my first choice, but New York does not make it easy. There’s pepper spray, mace or even bear repellent. Carry and keep handy small sharp objects that can be used in self-defense.
