Left Wing German Politician Admits She Lied About Ethnicity of Men Who Raped Her, In Order to Avoid "Backlash" Against Muslims

This story sums up the times we endure.

Let's state this up-front: to avoid "backlash," she chose to alibi her rapists (in the sense that police would be looking for the wrong men) and thereby increase the odds that another woman would suffer rape at their hands.

But that, to her, seemed to be a more palatable outcome than "backlash."

A young left-wing German politician has admitted she lied to police about the racial background of three men who raped her in case it triggered reprisals against refugees in her country. Selin Gören, the national spokeswoman of the left-wing youth movement Solid, was attacked by three men in January in the city of Mannheim where she works as a refugee activist. The 24-year-old was ambushed late at night in a playground where she said she was forced to perform a sex act on her attackers.

After the assault she went straight to the police - but she did not tell them the ethnic make-up of the men, that they were speaking Arabic or Farsi.

Selin, aware of the backlash that migrants suffered after the events in Cologne on New Year's Eve - when hundreds of women were sexually assaulted and robbed by marauding gangs of immigrant youths - instead said she was robbed and said her attackers spoke German.

Now she has told Germany's Spiegel magazine why she lied. After her initial interview at the end of January she returned to the police 12 hours later to tell them the real story.

She said a friend talked her into going back to the police with the real story because another woman had been raped in the area - an accusation later retracted by the alleged victim.

I don't care if religious-maniac messianic martyrs like this woman wish to martyr themselves -- but I care when they choose to martyr other people.
