German official: right-wing anti-immigrant talk "at least as awful" as the assaults

It's infuriating--and also sad--to see German government officials rationalize the mass sex assaults on German women in Cologne on New Year's eve.

For example, the "interior minister for North Rhine-Westphalia," Ralf Jaeger, was very frank in his denunciation of...wait:  The BBC reported that this wussy goofball's complaint was to warn that anti-immigrant groups were trying to use the attacks to stir up hatred against refugees.
"What happens on the right-wing platforms and in chatrooms is at least as awful as the acts of those assaulting the women," he said. "This is poisoning the climate of our society."
Any questions on where this jerk stands?  Does any rational person doubt he's firmly, totally in the pro-immigrant, anti-German camp?

Here's how the Britain's "Telegraph" reported it: 
Ministers have said there is no evidence asylum seekers were involved in the violence.
But the leaked police report, published in Bild newspaper and Spiegel, a news magazine, claims that one of those involved told officers: “I am Syrian. You have to treat me kindly. Mrs Merkel invited me.”

Another tore up his residence permit before the eyes of police, and told them: “You can’t do anything to me, I can get a new one tomorrow.”
 The Telegraph also reports the number of women who reported being assaulted has gone from "dozens" to 100.

This isn't a simple misunderstanding.  It's war.  And I'd like to think that if this had happened in the U.S. there'd be a lot of seriously injured assailants.  But given emperor Obama's strong pro-Muslim stance, I'm not sure that would happen now.  And in Germany, with Frau Merkel having led the fight to allow 1.1 million "immigrants" in last year, it's hard to imagine any level of the German people putting an end to this.

Good luck, German women.  You'll need it.

As Jammie Wearing Fool put it,
We remember Democrats laughing and taunting conservatives about 'being afraid of widows and orphans.'  Anyone care to revisit that smugness?
Yeah, we knew none of you lying Democrats would have even a vague recall.  Uh-huh.

Critics of Syrian refugees are 'scared of widows and orphans,' Obama says

 WASHINGTON — President Obama mocked critics of his administration's refugee policy Wednesday amid a growing clamor from Republican governors, congressmen and presidential candidates for a moratorium on new arrivals from Syria.

"Apparently, they’re scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion. First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates.  Now they’re worried about three-year-old orphans.  That doesn’t sound very tough to me," Obama said in Manila in a joint press conference with Philippine President Benigno Aquino.
