Culture Clash


For John, BLUFBlow-ins just don't understand.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



This item, from Richard Fernandez and The Belmont Club, is a week old, but still timely—"Stand by for Collision".

Here is the lede:

One of the more interesting aspects of the European cover-up of mass sex assaults by so-called refugees is that it abets abuse inflicted on Muslim women as well.  Before the story of the Cologne attacks broke, Katin Bennhold of the New York Times wrote a piece on the abuse of refugee women on the migrant trail.  The story should have set alarm bells ringing in the West about what was coming up the trail towards them but it didn't.
While it is clear that there are important cultural differences between immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East and those with so called Western Values, what is not clear is if the national elites of Western nations (1) recognize this and (2) are willing to cross some values to deal with this issues.  With regard to US Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, there is recognition.  What is not clear is if he has a solution that does not involve the use of a sledge hammer.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
