As we know the women of Germany, specifically those of their ancient seat of the Archbishopric of Cologne, were assaulted by quote hundreds of immigrant men unquote on New Year’s Eve.
This afternoon I decided to visit the so-called Unz Review, just to find someone with whom to disagree; my usual antagonist, and he does not disappoint, is historian of mathematics [his book is very good, by the way] John Derbyshire.
Derbyshire quotes a fellow blogger’s site, on which the well-spoken comment which passes for explanation, appeared. To be precise:
Steve was reviewing a book titled Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction by Philip Tetlock and Dan Gardner. Along the way, though, he gave a passing mention to Jean Raspail’ s 1973 novel The Camp of the Saints, which is about a Third World invasion of Europe. Raspail in effect was forecasting what we’ve been seeing this year in Europe. However, says Steve:
Raspail missed key aspects of what happened in 2015. He imagined that the refugees would be starving masses who overcame European resistance by their pitifulness. But instead, the invaders turned out to be strutting military-age youths with smartphones, giving Germany’s surrender a weird sexual vibe that nobody yet has explained satisfactorily even in retrospect.
That caused one of Steve’s readers to contribute the following comment, slightly edited:
The sexual appeal of strutting military age young men would be to whom? To women, both young and old. If the appeal is sexual it can’t be to anyone else. It is to women … The sexy men are invading because the women want it.
And it’s stupid but it’s not false.
When men make a mistake, they invade somewhere they should not have—due to male desires blinding their reason.
When women make a mistake, they invite someone they should not have—due to female desires blinding their reason.
The reason we have not yet seen an explanation is that we assume politics are based on male desires. And. second, women do not understand their own desires, so they would be less able to articulate this than I am. What woman would say, “I know it is stupid, but I need to see if these sexy, strong foreigners might make better lovers and rulers”?
That got some push-back from other commenters. Some pointed out that MSM pictures of the Muslim invaders deliberately avoid showing the fit young males, preferring to focus on distressed women and drowned toddlers. You could say that’s also a yin play—an appeal to the feminine—but to a different module of the female brain.
So a statement which logically consists purely of blaming the victim enters the echo chamber, passing from blog to blog. And I participate. Ah, Bartelby! Ah, humanity!
