Where was this strong police presence on New Year’s Eve?
There were mass riots and coordinated sex attacks that spanned all of Europe. Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland. Why weren’t the tactics used against the anti-rape and robbery rally employed against the Muslim Migrant hordes?

The police broke up PEGIDA demonstration early, claiming that some in the crowd had thrown bottles and other objects at the police…
I watched what looked like a reasonably peaceful end to the demonstration on RUPTLY live feed (scroll down to the bottom of the post). The PEGIDA demonstrators carrying their Schwarz, Rot, Gold flags (the German national flag) appeared to disperse reasonably quickly and peacefully. The loudest and most resistant to disperse were the fascist opposition agitators (perhaps Antifa) who were yelling loudly “NAZIs raus!” — “NAZIs get out.”
Looks like this early disruption of a basically peaceful PEGIDA demonstration may have been staged by government officials/police in the hopes that they might be able to point a finger at the “racists” for unruly behavior.
The video shows the mostly peaceful PEGIDA marchers, but also some Hooligans against Salafists… then a flash mob organized group of 1,000 women demonstrating on the steps of the Cologne cathedral. A man who was interviewed on site found it surprising that there were not more men there…”it should be all men,” he says, not understanding why the German men don’t show up to support/protect their women. Finally, the police are shown pushing back some unruly opposition/Antifa (ironically short for anti-fascist — and they define fascism) demonstrators trying to bring their protest inside the station.
Now let’s watch the leftist press try and paint the PEGIDA demonstrators as a wild bunch of racist fascists ..seems to me the people who support rape culture in Germany are the real Nazis.
“German police fire water cannons at PEGIDA protesters in Cologne,” By RT, 9 Jan, 2016:
German police have used water cannons to disperse PEGIDA demonstrators in Cologne. The anti-immigration movement were rallying against a rash of assaults on women, blamed on migrants in the city on New Year’s Eve.
Over a thousand supporters of the far-right movement took part in the protest in the center of the western German city on Saturday. They chanted “expulsion,” while waving German flags and other banners inscribed with slogans such as “Rapefugees not welcome.”
“Merkel must go” was another popular rallying cry with the demonstrators. The far-right supporters are infuriated with German Chancellor Angela Merkel for her soft stance on refugees, and statements that the country could accept over a million asylum seekers.
Scuffles between the police and PEGIDA supporters started after the demonstrators hurled firecrackers and beer bottles at law enforcers. When they continued to throw projectiles, police deployed two water cannons and used pepper spray to disperse the group. Supporters of the anti-immigration movement were then herded towards an area near the city’s station.
The police in Cologne could also be seen making a number of arrests of those supporting the PEGIDA movement. A police spokeswoman said the PEGIDA protest had attracted some 1,700 people, half of whom she described as coming from the “hooligan scene,” Reuters reported.
