Better Orbán than Corbyn
by Ilana Mercer
It’s difficult to feel sorry for liberals when they reap the whirlwind that they sow.
A middle-aged woman, who campaigned against the deportation of migrants from her native Sweden, was raped by the very refugees she advocates for.
She met two Afghani teens on the street outside a bar and voluntarily accompanied them to their taxpayer-funded pad. The rest, as they say, is history.
Is the European obsession with importing Middle-Eastern men driven by horny, menopausal, Social Justice Warriors? “Bohemian witches” or “tie-dye hags”, as one risqué, Swedish, You Tube commentator calls this degenerate distaff.
Judging from their irrational, histrionic protests against President Trump’s travel ban, we seem destined to live or die by these females’ hormones (or their replaced hormones).
Certain men in that part of the world are not much better.
A Norwegian male was raped by a Somali asylum seeker. The latter term—Somali asylum seeker—is something of a misnomer. The asylum seeker honorific is given to practically anyone from the Africa or the Middle-East who washes up on Continental Europe’s shores.
The politician, Karsten Nordal Hauken, went public with the details of his ordeal. “I was raped by a Somalian asylum seeker,” he wrote in a Norwegian newspaper. “My life fell into ruin.”
But it was Hauken, not his assailant, who proceeded to assault sensibilities with a confession that rivals the crime for reprehensibility.
As Hauken, a self-described left-wing feminist and anti-racist tells it, he has been wracked by guilt because his Somali assailant has been returned to sender.
After resting up in a Norwegian prison, the rapist is said to have been deported to Somalia. (I can find no evidence of said rapist’s whereabouts. Maybe he’s en route to America?)
Hauken was overcome by “a strong feeling of guilt and responsibility. I was the reason that he would not be in Norway anymore …”
And: “I see [the Somali] mostly as a product of an unfair world, a product of an upbringing marked by war and despair.”
He characterized the (light) sentence given to his rapist by the Norwegian State as “the ultimate revenge,” meted out by “an angry father confronting it’s [sic] child’s attacker.”
Mr. Hauken also lamented that the rapist would be “sent to a dark uncertain future in Somalia,” instead of enjoying, presumably, the bright future that awaits a man with his proclivities in welcoming Norway.
Hauken has since come to the conclusion that he might not have been raped after all, but simply subjected to “a cultural difference.”
What a penetrating observation!
An analysis of this sorry spectacle was offered up in the British Spectator. It chalked up Hauken’s confession as a simple case of “Stockholm syndrome”, used to describe hostages who take on the perspectives of their kidnappers.”
“Perhaps the Hauken case,” opined The Spectator’s Douglas Murray, “could be used to coin the term “Norway syndrome”, an affliction that causes rape-victims to feel concern over the prospects of their rapists?”
Tellingly, Mr. Murray collapsed the distinction between the reaction of this male heterosexual and that of another rape victim, “a ‘no-borders’ activist on the French-Italian border.”
She “was gang-raped by a group of Sudanese immigrants but was persuaded to keep quiet about her own rape, in case it was used to undermine the open-borders cause.”
The woman is another fool who reaped the results of her folly. As far as we know, however, she has never publicly expressed a kinship with her gang rapists but was coaxed into silence.
Good or bad, the Norwegian Nordal Hauken has spoken openly about a reality few straight men reveal: rape by another man. Hauken, not the vanquished female, is the one said to feel for his violator. So far, Hauken has shared his inappropriate feelings more promiscuously than most women would.
The liberal program aims to dissolve “the constitution of man” in the service of sexual sameness. It is predicated on the belief that biology is incidental, and that men and women are essentially interchangeable.
Egalitarianism, the goal of the Left, rests on the blunting of male-female differences. In the service of egalitarian sameness, the man-vs.-female biological imperatives are rapidly, if reflexively, being dissolved.
Survival, however, has a biological dimension. A submissive, effete civilization will not endure.
The unedifying spectacle of Karsten Nordal Hauken turning the other cheek to the man who raped him is not an isolated case.
The liberal patriarchy is forever scrutinizing itself for signs of racism and deficits in empathy toward “The Other,” while readily accusing others of the same.
It is as though liberal men derive pleasure from prostrating themselves to assailants and then succumbing to racial virtue signaling.
Are they perhaps driven by a powerful but unconscious homo-erotic impulse? Who knows…
