The western German town of Bornheim has also had a round women being groped by Islamic refugees at its indoor public pool.
“There have been complaints of sexual harassment, groping, slapping and chatting-up going on in this swimming pool … by groups of young men, and this has prompted some women to leave (the premises),” the town’s deputy mayor said.
Bornheim, as it turns out, is just a stone’s throw away from Cologne where a wave of sexual assaults allegedly perpetrated by men of “Arab origin” at a New Year’s Eve festival has mushroomed into a bloc-wide scandal.
Now, officials from across Europe are struggling to deflect criticism and devise a way to ensure that women are safe in large crowds.
Now, in a story that combines the concern about public pools and the effort to dissuade lewd behavior with cartoons, The Local reports that “in Bavaria, swimming pools have issued leaflets with simple pictorial instructions on behaviour for Islamic refugees (most of whom are 18-35 year old males) who may never have swum in public before.”
“The ground rule of respect for women – whatever clothing they’re wearing – is unfortunately not respected by all our swimmers. That’s why there is an explicit indication about it,” a Munich city spokesman said.
The “explicit indication” the spokesman mentions is a slightly creepy first-person view of a hand reaching out to touch the behind of an unsuspecting female swimmer:
That is unacceptable, as is drowning others (#4 below), pushing women into the pool (#3 below), and leaping from the side onto a screaming blonde (#7 below). You must also take showers with other men, not women (#1 below).
Here is the full cartoon which you are encouraged to review in its entirety if you are an asylum seeker that plans on swimming in Bavaria. Or you can ignore it and do whatever you feel like. Diplomatic Immunity!
This is the same logic employed by Cologne mayor Henriette Reker who, in the wake of the New Year’s Eve assaults, suggested that one solution to the “problem” would be to “explain to people from other cultures that the jolly attitude during our Carnival is not a sign of sexual openness.” Neither is wearing a bikini.
What are the chances that silly cartoons will be successful in taming the Islamic refugees’ more base instincts?
