Male-skewed immigration to Europe and sexist violence: Oksana Boyko interviews Prof Hudson

The assault and robbery of scores of women in Cologne on New Year's Eve, allegedly perpetrated by groups of migrants, has fanned the flames of the refugee crisis in Europe. And while European leaders introduce stricter measures to deal with offending asylum seekers, many are questioning the wisdom of the policies that brought them there. What's behind the seemingly increasing wave of violence by migrants and is the predominantly male migration skewing the European demographic profile, thereby predisposing its societies to even more crime? Oksana is joined by Valerie Hudson, a Professor of Political Science at Texas A&M University, to explore these issues.

This article, including the embedded video, was originally published on RT/Worlds Apart as Cologne-ising Europe? Ft. Valerie Hudson, Professor of Political Science, Texas A&M University (21/1/16). This republication includes additional text.

Among some other fascinating observations, the interview asks, "How could Sweden, how could Germany, do this to its women?" It is well-known that sex-ratio imbalance has multiple negative consequences. It is often a consequence of wars and invasions, but rarely do you have an influx as in Germany, where the sex ratio has been altered so radically so quickly, with such a sudden mostly male wave of immigrants.

From Angela Merkel: Going, Going…Gone? (22/1/16) | Russia Insider:

Today's online edition of Bloomberg news carries a lead story entitled "Merkel in Peril with Window to Tame EU's Refugee Crisis." It is commendable for flagging a possibility of change in command in Europe’s leading country that most mainstream U.S. and even Continental media still overlook.

The authors take into account the direct challenge to Merkel‘s open borders' policy on refugees coming from the Christian Social Union (CSU), the Bavarian sister party of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU). We get the disparaging words of Bavarian Premier Horst Seehofer regarding Merkel’s failure to make the slightest concession to her detractors when she spoke to a CSU gathering in Wildbad Kreuth yesterday. He is quoted as remarking in conclusion that "We're looking at some difficult weeks and months ahead."

Bloomberg also directs attention to what it calls "unprecedented pressure" from within her own faction, making reference to a letter signed by 50 CDU deputies calling for the government to tighten border security to counter the influx, which with the 56 deputies who had previously made known their disapproval brought the number in her faction opposed to her refugee policy to one-third.

IF the floodgates were going to be opened for refugees from Syria, and all the other "refugees" fleeing dysfunctional nations, and poverty, then at least there should have been some order, a priority queue and a selection process OFFSHORE. As it was, the floodgates were just opened, and anybody was allowed to come in!

Priority should be given to families, with a good work record and character profile. As it is, there's mayhem, rapes and crime in Europe, and mass migration, unfettered by order and logic, is wreaking havoc. Europe, what we normally saw as an exemplary model of civilization, the Arts, and dignity, is being wrecked.

President Barack Obama held firm that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must be removed from office, saying that he doesn’t believe the civil war in Syria will end while the 'dictator' (quotes added - Ed) remains in power. So, the misery and conflict will continue, and more and more people will continue to flee the country, due to international interference in a sovereign, elected government.

The US has a very bad habit of interfering in other nation's affairs and toppling governments in the name of 'freedom' and 'democracy'. In reality, the main reason is to make a subservient client state/nation that would be loyal to the US. The US is going after Assad because Assad is unwilling to toe the American line.

"The fundamental right to asylum does not have a limitation," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said. "As a strong, economically healthy country, we have the strength to do what is necessary." Such largess and megalomania has been her downfall, and she's pulling down her country.
