Just when you thought the world couldn’t get any more ridiculous, comes a Polish magazine with a highly inflammatory front cover vilifying Islam.
The cover of this week’s edition of wSieci (the Network), a widespread politically conservative magazine, depicted a white woman being assaulted by three pairs of dark-skinned male hands, with the headline, ‘The Islamic Rape Of Europe’.
The blonde woman is draped in a European Union flag, with the male hands pulling her hair and looking as though they are trying to tear off the flag.
The magazine blurb promises “a report about what the media and Brussels elite are hiding from the citizens of the European Union”.
For those ignorant enough to bother reading the article, it makes reference of the rape and sexual assault of hundreds of women in Germany’s Cologne on New Year’s Eve, with author Aleksandra Rybińska writing, “The people of old Europe after the events of New Year’s Eve in Cologne painfully realised the problems arising from the massive influx of immigrants”.
“The first signs that things were going wrong, however, were there a lot earlier. They were still ignored or were minimised in significance in the name of tolerance and political correctness.”
Elsewhere in the mag, article headlines include, ‘Does Europe Want to Commit Suicide?’ and ‘The Hell of Europe’.
Twitter didn’t exactly take to the magazine cover.
