Karsten Nordal Hauken probably thinks he is "progressive" because
he feels bad for his rapist


'Norwegian politician felt 'guilt & responsibility' after being sodomized by Somali refugee

A male politician in Norway has opened up about his rape by a Somali man, stating that he felt “guilt and responsibility” for the perpetrator being deported after time in prison. Turning to alcohol and marijuana, the lawmaker “became numb” for years.

Karsten Nordal Hauken, a leftist politician, shared his story in a letter to Swedish broadcaster NRK, as part of a documentary series titled 'I Against Me.'

Hauken speaks of being brutally raped by a Somali man, and recalls riding in an ambulance to a rape reception center at an Oslo hospital. He mentions having samples taken from nurses, speaking to a psychologist, and eventually being collected by his father.

He goes on to speak about the investigation to identify the perpetrator.

“My room was ransacked by crime scene investigators and I had fingerprint ink on the desk for months afterwards. They managed to secure both DNA and fingerprints,” Hauken said.

But it wasn't until six months later that the politician received a phone call from police, letting him know that a man who had been arrested for having a knife in a public place had also been linked to the rape.

During the trial, the perpetrator “claimed that what happened was voluntary, but all the circumstances made clear that there was little doubt about the question of guilt,” Hauken wrote.

The man was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison for the rape.

Near the completion of the prison sentence, Hauken received yet another phone call from authorities, informing him that the man would be deported straight back to Somalia upon the end of his term.

At that moment, Hauken recalled having an emotional response.

“The tears, they came...I felt a relief and joy that he was going away forever,” he said.

However, Hauken also recalled having a feeling of “guilt and responsibility” upon hearing the news.

“It was I who was the reason why he should not be left in Norway, but rather be late for a very uncertain future in Somalia. He had already served his sentence in prison. Should he now be punished again? And this time much harder?” he pondered.

He went on to say that “I do not feel anger towards [the perpetrator], for I see him most as a product of an unjust world. A product of an upbringing marked by war and deprivation.”

However, the years after the rape were marred with substance abuse, including marijuana and alcohol, causing Hauken to “become numb” for nearly five years.

Hauken stressed that although he felt “forgotten and ignored,” it remains “scary and taboo” for men to talk about their emotional life.

“I am afraid that no girls want me, and that other men laugh at me. [I'm] afraid that I'll be perceived as anti-feminist when I say that young men who are struggling should get more attention. But what the hell, we are struggling. We must be seen!” he said.

Hauken went on to say that by writing the letter and joining the NDK documentary, he wanted to “break general perceptions that rape victims are always women and that one is ruined for life.”

“I am a heterosexual man, and I was raped by another, presumably heterosexual man,” he said, stressing that sexual abuse in the perpetrator's culture is mostly about power, rather than desire. “It is not regarded as a homosexual act being the one who exerts power and raping.”

He concluded by stressing that refugees need continued support. “I have been a victim of an injustice and a dark part of the world that we are largely shielded from here at home,” Hauken said, adding that he is “part of the world, and the world is unfortunately unfair.”

NDK's 'I Against Me' documentary series spotlights Hauken and seven others through video diaries which document their psychological challenges.

Selin Goren lied about her attacker's identity because she doesn't want her fellow Germans
to hold racist thoughts about Muslims


German activist says she lied to police about sex assault perpetrators to avoid ‘racial hatred'

A German left wing youth movement activist admitted that she lied to police about a sexual assault and concealed the ethnicity of her attackers out of fear of provoking “more hatred” against refugees.

She thought about “refugee shelters burnt in the previous months” and wanted to prevent “her story from being exploited by racists,” Selin Goren, a national spokeswoman of the Linksjugend Solid movement, an offshoot of the German Left Party, told Der Spiegel.She also admitted that she was infuriated when a police officer asked her whether her attackers had been refugees.

Goren said she was assaulted and raped in January by three men of foreign origin, who spoke Arabic as well as Kurdish or Farsi (Persian) in the German city of Mannheim, where she works as a refugee aid activist. The attackers also stole her handbag, she said.

After the assault she went straight to police but instead of filing a complaint about a sex attack, she only reported being robbed. She also lied about the ethnicity of her attackers, claiming that she was robbed by a “mixed group of Germans and foreigners alike, who spoke German to each other.”

Later, as she explained her move, Goren said she had been thinking about the public backlash that refugees and migrants suffered after the wave of Cologne sex attacks on New Year’s Eve, when hundreds of women were sexually assaulted and robbed by groups of predominantly migrant youths.

About 12 hours later, her friend persuaded her to go to police and tell the officers the real story by saying that her attackers could also assault other people and adding that another woman had been sexually assaulted in the neighborhood shortly beforehand.

Goren also made her case public on social media shortly after the incident. However, she put the blame on “racist and sexist” German society rather than directly on her attackers. In one of her Facebook posts, she even accused other victims of sexual assaults involving migrants of framing their stories so as to “provoke racist hatred” and thus forcing her to lie to police.

In another post on Facebook, she virtually apologized to “male refugees” for the “racism” and “sexism” of German society. “You are not a problem. You are not a problem at all,” she said, addressing refugees and migrants.

“What really hurts me under these circumstances is the fact that the sexist and over the line [incident] that happened to me led only to [a situation, in which] you are subjected to growing and more aggressive racism,” she also said in her post.

Now, Goren urges other women not to repeat her mistakes and not to “conceal the truth even if it seems politically expedient.” Speaking about how this incident changed her worldview, Goren stresses she still puts the blame for such incidents more on “sexist society” than on individuals.

Goren, who is of Turkish origin, also says that her stance on refugees and migrants did not change generally, although she admits that she is now afraid of Arabs.

Goren’s case appears not to have been unique as three schoolgirls aged between 16 and 18 in the city of Kassel located in central Germany said that they experienced repeated incidents of groping and sexual harassment on public transport by migrants for several weeks but would not report them, fearing “to contribute to the discrimination of refugees,” local media reported.

The behavior of concealing the truth about such incidents or not revealing the true identity of the attackers “in fact is precisely what provokes public indignation,” Christian Pfeiffer, the former head of the Lower Saxony Criminology Research Institute in Hannover, told Germany’s Die Welt after the wave of Cologne sex attacks on New Year’s Eve.

He also stressed at that time, that an increase in sexual assaults could be a result of the refugee policy that fails to deal properly with a massive influx of young single men, whose status in Germany is unclear.

In order to deal with the problem, one should first start to speak about it as it is, Pfeiffer stressed.

According to German activist group GESA (Active Together Against Sexual Violence), the number of sexual assaults have increased following the massive inflow of male migrants.

“[Sexual] offenders often come from areas with another culture and another vision of a woman,” Steffi Burmester, a spokeswoman of the GESA told German media, adding that, after the period of “fear and humiliation” linked to fleeing their homeland, these men “are alone and … are looking for a way to bolster their male self-esteem.”

Such behavior “cannot be pardoned or accepted,” she added.

Russian men still have balls. Not sure how to create such men in the west anymore. Interestingly we are not hearing of too many
Muslim rapes in Russia anymore. Here in Canada women are being groped and sexually assaulted by Muslim migrants. One can find out
about at least some of these crimes from alternative media sources such as Rebel media. We also learned about a sexual assault by a Muslim migrant in Lethbridge though the media tried to conceal the attacker's identity. Canada mainstream media is trying to conceal these crimes, the thinking being that Canadians will develop racist attitudes and not welcome Trudeau's Muslim mass migration plan if we learn about the migrant's tendency towards criminality that it is already inflicting on Canada's women and girls.
