Germany: Migrant Gangs Turn Violent, Disrupt Popular Fair

All attackers were “immigrants or German citizens of immigrant-background."

As Germany marks the second anniversary of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s fateful decision to open the country’s border to more than a million ‘refugees.’ gangs of migrant men rioted and disrupted a German popular folk fair, the “Fellbacher Herbst,” near the German city of Stuttgart.

“More than 60 youths aged between 15 and 19 planned beforehand to riot on Sunday and Saturday evening” reported the local German-language newspaper Stuttgarter Nachrichten on Wednesday. The rioting led to several injuries and at least one person was hospitalized after being attacked by a “dangerous instrument,” the newspaper revealed.

According to the local police, the violent mob was “exclusively” comprised “of immigrants or German citizens of immigrant-origin.” The media reports did not comment on the nationalities or the actual motives of the rioters.

The folk festival Fellbacher Herbst is regarded as the largest autumn and wine festivals in southern German state of Baden-Württemberg. Stuttgarter Nachrichten reported the incidents that took place last weekend:

Two gangs of youth from Fellbach and the surrounding areas had “planned beforehand to carry out the riot,” the officials from the mayor’s office and Fellbach Police said in a statement concerning [the event] over the weekend. Especially noticeable was the fact that the violent gang was made up of very young men. Around 60 young men between the ages of 15 and 19 clashed with each other. According to information provided by the police, they were all “exclusively German citizens of migrant-origin or migrants”.

The teens managed to evade the police and build small groups, forcing the police to divide its strength. It thus became necessary to call the riot police for reinforcement. [Translation by the author]

Merkel should “finally secure our borders so that the internal security doesn’t deteriorate any further, said Jörg Meuthen, the spokesman for the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, reacting to the incidents at the Fellbacher Herbst, “It is time to confront the migrant violence.”

Since Merkel flung the country's doors wide open to mass migration, mainstream media and academia have been peddling the fallacy that migrants stampeding their way into Europe from the Middle East and North Africa were somehow going to “enrich” the continent. Today the revelers at the Fellbach festival, just like the women of Cologne before them, are experiencing that long-prophesied “enrichment” firsthand. If Europe failed to halt the migrant wave anytime soon, these incidents will be mere minor prelude to the future conflicts gathering at Europe’s horizon.
