France is lost for now.

A change in direction may bring the nation back, but it would take decades to recover part of its lost luster.

Very sad.

Ilgiornale.it reports (translated):

The rape took place last Thursday in a banlieue south of Paris. Some government officials, instead of wondering about the cause of the terrible violence, pointed the finger at Twitter.

In France, in a banlieu south of Paris, two sixteen-year-olds of African origin raped a minor girl, filmed the abuse, and shared the video on social networks.

During the sexual violence, the attackers repeatedly cited Allah, the Qur’an and Mecca.

The episode, told by French newspapers and then taken up again by La Verità, took place on Thursday, December 19 in Morsang-sur-Orge, in the Essonne department. The perpetrators of the rape, as mentioned, posted the video of the violence on the net. Those brutal images, in addition to being shared by numerous users, allowed investigators to trace the identity of the alleged rapists. The two assailants were arrested last Saturday.

The facts in detail

The sexual assault took place in the entrance hall of a building. The classic tower block typical of those French suburbs, where delinquency, drug dealing, crime and, more generally, degradation reign. The video of the rape lasts about a minute and a half, and has bounced from one social media outlet to another, enjoying particular “success” on Twitter.

The dramatic images begin with the underage victim fleeing, and being chased and insulted by the two sixteen-year-olds. From their mouths come extremely violent sentences: offensive words that are mixed with terms that refer to the Islamic religion. “I swear on the Qur’an of Mecca, shout and you will see the blows I give you,” shouts one of the rapists to the frightened girl.

At another point, the rapists order the young woman to follow them: “In the name of Allah, I swear to you on the Qur’an of Mecca: it is better if you reflect in your mind and that you come with us, because a team is about to arrive […] we are the best, those who are coming will make you regret […] )n my mother I swear to you: you will not come out alive. You will die.” At that point, verbal violence turned into physical violence.

Beyond the serious crime, the attitude of the two rapists highlights for the umpteenth time the danger of the pro-Islamist subculture which is now the owner of the Parisian banlieu. According to this view, women count for nothing. They are only objects that serve to satisfy the desires of men. Of the lower beings to be insulted and beaten at will.

Twitter on the grill

The episode also sparked numerous controversies over how social network managers handled the situation. Yes, because despite the police repeatedly asking Twitter users not to share the video, the footage remained in circulation for hours before being removed.

The French government, at that point, instead of reflecting on the pitiful state which the peripheries of the country are in, thought it better to attack Twitter. The Undersecretary for Equal Opportunity, Marlène Schiappa, had no doubts: “The video is revolting. As soon as I became aware of it, I immediately contacted Twitter to have it removed. Copies are still in circulation. This social network is not up to speed; criminals know it, that’s why they use it.”

The biggest risk now is that French public opinion will not stop to reflect either on the serious crime committed by the two very young Africans, or on the tensions that run through the neighborhoods of the suburbs, but on the functioning of Twitter. In that case it would be a defeat for everyone.

Muslims are now so emboldened in France that they don’t just rape young girls.

They rape young girls and broadcast it to social media.

Anyone else see a problem with that?

Liberals certainly don’t.

The more the merrier.

Let’s look as just some of the Muslim rape stories that have come out of Europe.

Do we really want this nonsense in America?
