DAILYKENN.com --A criminologist in Germany says his nation's welcome culture has ended. Citizens in that nation fear for the destruction of their culture and, in some cases, are expressing their concerns through violence. Attacks by Germans on refugee shelters in recent months is evidence of a deeper, more widespread sentiment.
Hans-Dieter Schwind pointed to two New Year's Eve attacks against Germans as undeniable evidence that immigration is perceived as a threat.
The brutal beheading of two young Scandinavian women in Morocco recently serves as evidence that tolerance of Islamic culture is synonymous is gullibility.

The criminologist Hans-Dieter Schwind leads amok rides such as those on New Year's Eve in Bottrop and Essen with eight injured people on a growing threat of immigration. In the Thursday edition of the "Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung" Schwind said: " People are seething, and then suddenly there is an outbreak ". This is a dangerous development, says the criminologist. He himself had expected such a case much earlier. Hans-Dieter Schwind taught at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and at the University of Osnabrück. Amok rides like those in Bottrop and the attacks on refugee shelters in recent months are just the extreme tip of a more general development. He worries that this will continue. " The welcome culture is finished"Added Schwind.
The Bielefeld conflict and violence researcher Andreas Zick said that people from the middle of society were increasingly radicalized, who had previously had no connection to right-wing extremist ideology. The culprit had certainly been on the Internet before his amok ride and was infected by a movement that believes that the country is alienated and the policy proves a loss of control. Conflict researcher Zick the WAZ. " There is a growing mood in the population that speaks of national identity, resistance and control that you need to take back into your own hands. This self-empowerment of the citizens worries me very much. "(Source: dts)
If one puts the constant loss of circulation of the media mainstream and the falling publicity ratings in relation to the gains of the free media, then the gentlemen criminologists and conflict researchers are right with their description of the current state. The mistrust of the mainstream media and the "people's representatives" is likely to be at an all-time high. In other words, when circumstances change, habits and certainties also change - and there is nothing unusual about that. In wartime, man is different from peacetime, and a concerned person behaves differently than a reassured person. These are truisms.
In addition, the mainstream media has failed to shatter the idea that personal attitudes to the stranger do not change the danger at all. Neither Maria Ladenburger, nor Mia from Kandel - nor the two killed Scandinavians in Morocco - had a xenophobic attitude, quite the opposite. It is obvious that it was just their "tolerance & cosmopolitanism" propagated by politics and the media that ultimately became their doom.
