Not really news but I think its an important perspective. These guys were uneducated people giving the finger to a society that they were jealous of. Its not helpful to infantilise them, or to say that they are inherently evil when their behaviour is not something unique to migrants.
Know some guys with levantine arabic background who where fucking BORN here (Germany).
They would join a rape mob in a heartbeat, had they known about by being in the right Facebook group.
They think German police/Law is weak.And they're right. You only go to prison after repeated violent offenses and even then it's only a ridiculously short sentence.
I was pointed to this yesterday:
>Not really news but I think its an important perspective
i think i should stick my dick into your mouth and piss until you died by piss poicon.
ohh and the shit happened way outside of carneval time. someone should tell this to the fucking jew of "journalist".
Just because they're jealous and hurt (oh booboo) doesn't mean they aren't subhumans based on their actions.
How they feel is irrelevant to the punishment they deserve of their crimes and their beliefs- and the punishment is, as always, deportation.
>We tend to forget that there is nothing redeeming in suffering: being a victim at the bottom of the social ladder does not make you some kind of privileged voice of morality and justice
Can't wait to take this tidbit to my grad school courses to irritate people
>behaviour is not something unique to migrants.
It sure seems like it is.
Zizek is fitting a square peg into a round hole.
>The difficult lesson of this entire affair is thus that it is not enough to simply give voice to the underdogs the way they are: in order to enact actual emancipation, they have to be educated (by others and by themselves) into their freedom.
What patronizing filth that denies the fact that a bunch of guys wanted to cop a feel off foreign ladies. No, it must be some sort of protest or social statement.
Here's a fucking social statement, migrants are willing to rape and molest women in host countries.

Those wacky Germans!
It's amazing how anything that isn't bitter condemnation gets read as apologetics. Zisek ain't really as hot as people make him out to be but goddamn at least the dude's trying to explain.
If anything he credits you as having 2 neurons to understand his point at all. If you did you would see that he's making a very similar point to yours, sans the racist vitriol.
As for the philosophical references, Zisek's habit of throwing in esoteric monkey wrenches is purely his own and reading it any other way is foolish and reeks of overcompensation.
But trying to be moral and promote justice does tend to drop you down to the bottom of the social ladder.
Seriously, have any of you guys ever actually tried being nice, helping others, and following the rules as often as possible? I used to be like that when I was really young, and it turns out people (or at least kids) absolutely HATE that shit.
Which is why all our most famous peace leaders got murdered.
Fucking marxists always think revolution is the solution to everything. This idiot even thinks most migrants are actually fleeing danger.
There is a significant cultural difference between them and ourselves and nothing will change that. They are not paragons of good or evil and neither are we; but they are certainly destroying our culture or at least what little is left of it.
Zizek is a globalist so I'm sure he does not give a fuck.
I suppose the crux of the issue is really whether it is the job of the west to "educate" foreigners.
The answer, at this stage, depends on your political beliefs. The left are born out of the colonial movement, the right are disillusioned with it and trying to return to isolationism.
>sans the racist vitriol.
Oh I'm so sorry for being upset about the thousands of rapes,crimes,murders innocent women and not only have to suffer because of subhumans
Oh I'm so sorry for being upset about subhumans who are legally,socially and economically privileged by an autistic political class
Oh I'm so sorry for being upset about being invaded by walking turdlings and seeing my homeland change
Oh I'm so sorry for thinking european countries belong to europeans
Yeah,"das raycis" ,if common sense is racist,then we all should be
What's there to read? It's nonsense sophistry meant to advance an agenda. The problem isn't islam or their culture, you fascist, it's capitalism! Of course!
No, sorry, I'm not going to sympathize with a bunch of violent idiots whose only reason for being in europe is to live off other people's tax money. The problem isn't us and our economic system, that's an insincere way of looking at a bunch of savage invaders.
Look kiddo, I'm not trying to get anyone to phrase your arguments in a less obnoxious way here. My point was simply that the claim that Zizek was espousing the nanny narrative so popular among liberals is false. More than that, if memory serves, the poster claimed that the attackers did what they did as a result of some kind of jealousy or inferiority complex. This is Zizek's main point, not that they don't know what they're doing but that they are purposefully rejecting the mores of an unfamiliar society as a conscious act of resistance. No dindu here, Zisek is saying migrants need to take responsibility for their actions.
>Its not helpful to infantilise them, or to say that they are inherently evil
Nor is it helpful (to us) to attempt to understand them or seek to educate them. We don't need them. Uneducated immigrants that hate us have NOTHING to offer us. I can't stress this enough. WE HAVE NO USE FOR THESE PEOPLE. THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE HERE, AND THEY ARE NOT ENTITLED TO OUR GENEROSITY. Close our borders to them, and defend them with whatever measures are necessary to keep these barbarians out. Let them stew in their jealousy, and if they get uppity, release the wrath of God upon them.
>rape is a result of "jealousy" or inferiority complex
>mass crime and rape from shitskins = an act of resistance against an unfamiliar society
Thanks for proving shitskins belong 10 inches under the ground.
My story as a kid with Muslim parents
My parents are Muslims. My parents moved to Sweden (from Algeria) when I was 10 (1999) because my dad was doing his PhD there.
Both my parents lived short periods of their youth (university) in Scotland and Germany respectively and moved back to Algeria. They payed for their studies by working and with help of family. And then moved back to work, get married etc
Even tough my parents lived some time in non-Muslim countries they always had a pretty strong faith. Unlike me who since childhood found prayer to be boring. Thanks to Sweden though I got to live in a society where you were measured by merit and behaviour. Where mainly logic ruled. Instead of how devout I am.
I may not have picked up my parents religion but I definitely picked up their honour and responsibility toward their society. To never let oneself be a burden. To pay your dues and debts. To respect your neighbours. To study as far as I'm able : be a productive and proud member of this society has has been built by generations of great people.
I'm not perfect, I have gone through the teenage. Have my memories of stupid things I have done, regrets. I can say that I never molested anyone though. That I pay my taxes. I can say I never stole. Never hit anyone unless we both were shitfaced and stupid. I can say I never put my feet on the seat in front of me on the train...
(Sorry for the bore, now to what I think, even though I'm just one voice)
Since end of 2014 I have been out of the country working on a project.
So ever since this immigration craze has started I have been gone. And it fucking horrifies me what's going on back home. My gf whom is either studying or visiting me, keeps telling em how shit is hitting the fan in Sweden and all the politicians are just following the trend of looking good by saying yes to immigrants.This is not ok. This uncontrolled immigration will hurt hurt and haunt our society for a century or more. This has to stop.
