Liberals can stop selling the “all cultures are equal” BS. It’s a Lie and this PROVES it!
When a Liberal wants a shortcut to winning the argument, without having to do the work, they play emotional cards. One of their favorites is “do it for the children”.
You’ve seen it before: we need to get rid of guns “for the children”. We need Obamacare… “for the children”. We need to tolerate illegal border-jumpers “for the children.”
Another favorite is the War on women.
Taken together, you’d think this issue would be #1 on their radar. But it isn’t. Because “Islamophobia”.
Fear of that label keeps the usual Social Justice Warriors out of this fight. Either that, or they can’t use it to damage a political enemy (read: Conservative, Christian or Entrepreneur), so it isn’t worth their effort.
…even UNICEF is concerned about the child marriages.
CEO Christian Schneider said. “For the welfare of refugee children who live in Germany, the state has a particular responsibility to protect – for them the same principles apply as for German children”.
German authorities are reportedly “sounding the alarm” over a sharp rise in child marriages after noting that more and more girl are disappearing from school. Justice Minister Heiko Maas has announced “drastic” new measures to tackle the problem.
The girls are usually married to older men, and the trend is being linked to the new wave of migrants who entered the country over the past 18 months. The state has logged over 1,000 child marriages, but N24.de reports that the number of unreported cases may dwarf this number.
In June a German judge ruled that the marriage of a 14-year-old Syrian girl to her 20-year-old cousin was valid, despite Germany law. The Oberlandesgericht Bamberg (Higher Regional Court in Bamberg, Bavaria) decided the marriage must be recognised as the wedding has already taken place as was recognised as legal in their native Syria, conducted in accordance with Sunni marriage rites.
In February, Breitbart London reported that dozens of child brides had arrived in Norway, with the youngest being just 11-years of age. The phenomenon has also caused concern in the Netherlands, prompted by the disappearance of the nine-month pregnant 14-year-old girl Fatema Alkasem and her 24-year-old husband.
You can try to wave all these away as outliers. But we already know that girls are caught and sold as sex slaves in a number of Islamic countries, and this was widely practiced under ISIS, and Boko Haram, etc.
And, of course, Mohammed himself… married a six year old girl. (She was his Favorite!)
But relax! It’s ok. He waited until she was nine before they “did the deed”.
