You can rationalise anything

From Breitbart:

An Iraqi migrant has admitted to raping a 10-year-old boy in a Viennese swimming pool so ferociously that the boy had to be hospitalised for his injuries. The man said he knew it was wrong but couldn’t help himself as he hadn’t had sex in months.

Police investigators have ascertained that the 20 year old man entered Austria on the 13th September, travelling into the country via the Balkans.

On the December 2nd he brutally attacked the young boy, pulling him into a changing cubicle, pulling down his swimming trunks and assaulting him. Although the boy cried out he was not heard by anyone, Kronen Zeitung has reported.

Following the attack, the Iraqi amused himself by diving repeatedly from the three metre board. The young boy, meanwhile, went to a lifeguard in tears and told him what had happened. The police were immediately called and were able to arrest the Iraqi on the spot, while the boy was taken to hospital suffering from serious injuries.

During his interrogation the man attempted to excuse himself, saying that it had been a “sexual emergency.”

He explained that he had to satisfy himself with the lad as he had not had sex in four months, explaining “I couldn’t stand not having sex as I have excess sexual energy.” He added that it had been “a huge mistake” and that he had known it would “scar the boy”.

When asked whether it was illegal to have sex with ten year old boys in Iraq, the man said “Such a thing is forbidden in any country in the world.”

Blame anything but oneself. ‘It was beyond my control’. You can find a reason for any of your conduct that will leave you blameless. The human mind, so dull so often in so many people, becomes fantastically creative when people are asked to explain their own behaviour. 

When faced with this tactic to avoid blame, one can ask why the perpetrator should be excused, when countless men face the same situation of serious and sometimes chronic quim-deprivation without themselves resorting to criminal aggravated sexual assault.

One can also take the option of a psychological counsellor whom I heard about many years ago. Sick and tired of having to listen to paedophiles tell him that they didn’t really do anything that wrong to the children they abused, and that indeed the children had led them on and had enjoyed the paedophile’s ministrations, the counsellor took to throwing handfuls of toy green slime at his interlocutors. When the astonished slime asked why he had been slimed, the counsellor informed him that telling such an outrageous lie was the equivalent of throwing slime at one’s audience, and that he wanted the slime to know what it felt like.

This sickening anecdote also serves as yet another data-point in the progress of the European elite’s declaration of war against their own people. As does this one:

For weeks I have been asking, where are the videos [of the attacks on women on New Year’s Eve at Cologne railway station]? Now we know. The iron hand of Merkel erased them. The German people have no shot at overcoming this invasion unless they rebel. Merkel’s war is a stealth nazism — importing a hostile army by the millions. There is no law and order if the government destroys evidence — evidence of mass crimes against law-abiding citizens. Attacks against young girls.

Yes, that’s right, when faced with evidence of the crimes, the German government chose, not to hand it over to prosecutors in order to arrest the culprits and pursue justice according to law, but to erase evidence of the crime.

Not really surprising, from the people who placed pressure on social media proprietors to censor public discussion of the scandal. But surely, this erasure of evidence has to be against the law?

Is any further proof needed, that the European elite is sacrificing its people for some end known only to itself? Possibly the base end of self-preservation ([If this gets out, we are finished, so erase the evidence and cross your fingers’) but how could they possibly have got themselves into this mess in the first place, if they had known the first thing about self-preservation, or weren’t pushed into it?

One thing is certain: you can bet that the German government is busy formulating a great big slimy gob of rationalisation to hurl at any German who asks ‘What the hell is going on??’

Even now, on Saturday, EU leaders denied a link between the New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults and the migrant crisis. Yet the attackers were almost all Muslim migrants.

Well done Angela Merkel. Brava.

Mark Steyn provides a ‘self preservation’ hypothesis to explain the madness:

At the upper level, I think there is a European political class that is so intellectually and emotionally invested in a proposition that it cannot abandon it without, in a sense, destroying itself.

In this explanation, the source of the poor decision-making that led to the migrant influx is that same as that which led to the erasure of the tapes: a conception of oneself which allowed the event to happen and which encourages behaviour to then defend that conception.
