Despite what you’ve heard in the MSM, New Year’s Eve in Germany and Austria was punctuated by problems, transgressions and strife despite a massive police presence.
In Cologne, where there were numerous rape and assaults last year, the situation remained according to the police, relatively quiet. At a first press conference, as reported by the Kölner Stadt Anzeiger, the police spoke of two sexual assaults, 1080 request to leave, and 650 identity checks.
This year 1500 police officers secured the main station and the area around the Cologne Cathedral. Despite the police presence and reminiscent of last year, more than 1,000 North Africans gathered in front of the Cathedral, or Domplatte as the locals call it. The police checked documentation from numerous "Nafris" (North Africans) at the station, including illegals and perpetrators of the previous Sylvesternacht debacle.
The night included dangerous scenes when the North Africans attacked the police with fireworks. In an attempt to maintain order, a separate exit for North Africas was formed at the railway station, with the expected subsequent accusations of racial profiling against the police.
The behavior of the police was strongly criticized by the German liberal media. Liberal outrage was triggered by a tweet, in which the police reported of the preventive review of 650 North Africans on their way to party. At a press conference, Jürgen Mathies, the police press officer, pushed back: "I reject the negative criticism that is connected with it. This is about consistently preventing the occurrence of comparable events like last year."
Focus reports stated a train en route to Cologne with 300 North Africans was also preventively stopped in Deutzen. Another report called six right-wing extremists being expelled from the cathedral square Identitarians, which was flatly denied by the Identitarian movement in Germany.
In Munich in contrast, Muslems launched rockets on city hall amidst cries of "Allahu Akbar!" According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the police themselves offered a gloomy account of the evening. They had to move on more than 320 "New Year's operations". These included, among other things, deployment against "large group of young men", who shot passers-by with fireworks - a typical codeword for Muslim migrants.
The Krone Zeitung also reports there were numerous attacks in Austria: Despite the presence of 7,000 policemen at New Year's Eve festivals all over the country, there were three sex assaults in Salzburg. In Vienna there were also several sexual transgressions and serious damage to property by fireworks. In the case of a massive intervention to quell a New Year's Eve brawl, five arrests were made.
In Innsbruck, Tyrol there were also incidents that recalled Cologne: women from Germany, Italy and Romania were “danced in" by grous of five to six men. The victims were kissed, groped and harassed.
Overall, in Germany and Austria, despite the general fake news by most of the the German media, you can not really talk of a quiet New Year’s Eve. A second national disgrace like that of Cologne could only be prevented by a massive police presence. In Austria too, only the overwhelming presence of the security forces prevented scenes such as those from last New Year’s Eve.
But despite the massive police presence, there were attacks on the police, brawls, and sexual assaults. In Dortmund, even, as reported by the Ruhr Nachrichhten, a church was set on fire by targeted fireworks bombardment. If the Germans and Austrians are ever going to celebrate New Year in peace again, it will only be the result of a targeted policy of remigration and a disavowal of the cultural marxist policies of Merkel and the EU.
