Not helping, dude


If you had observed the reactions of certain Germans back in the latter half of last year to the massive waves of refugees economic migrants rapefugees into their country last year, you might be forgiven for thinking that they were attempting to put the old, failed, hippy philosophy of "make love, not war" to work in order to help a small part of the huge number of Muslim men now invading Der Vaterland to assimilate:
A so-called “flirt expert” will be teaching migrants in Essen, Germany, how to flirt and use dating sites so they can pick up German women. 

Horst Wenzel describes himself as Germany’s number one “flirt coach” on his website Flirt University. Mr. Wenzel is now undertaking a controversial new project aimed at helping new migrants to Germany pick up German women both in real life and on online dating websites. 

According to Mr. Wenzel, flirting and picking up girls is a large part of the integration process and hopes that the migrants will “fall in love with Germany” – or at least their women, reports German paper Westen Allgemeine Zeitung. 

Reading like a mix pick up artistry and self-help coaching, the Flirt University website claims that it helps people make connections with members of the opposite sex. On the page that is advertised toward men it says that the courses will teach how to get phone numbers from attractive girls, and how to perform the perfect kiss. The group also claims that their methods will work to get men a “hot wife” even if they are merely “ordinary”. 

The credentials page on the site does not list any academic or formal qualifications but rather a litany of praise from German media such as the newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau who called the programme the “driving school for flirting”. 

Mr. Wenzel, 27, says that he is excited to start the workshop for migrants on September 6th, facilitated by the Workers’ Welfare Association (AWO) who are a government funded labour movement agency dedicated to “solidarity, tolerance, freedom, equality and justice”. [You just went full retard, bro. You NEVER go full retard.] 

The flirt coach told German press: “I feel that the refugees’ important basic needs are met in many places now. But love is also a very important basic need. And love is also integration to me.[*snort* *snicker* integration of genitals, maybe *chuckles*] 

One of the topics that will be discussed at the workshop will be the subject of online dating. Online dating is a “very popular” subject according to Mr. Wenzel. He claimed that he wanted to help migrants be more successful at picking up girls on dating apps, likely to be used for casual sexual encounters. 

On the Flirt University website the group claims that their techniques do not involve “magic or stupid tricks”, but rather “the aim is to develop a more confident and interesting personality”. 

For Mr. Wenzel the cultural differences of men from the Middle East and North Africa and their views toward women are not overly important. He says that he looks at the migrants as wanting affection and refused to have any “prejudice” toward the attitudes of the migrants beforehand.
Now before you and I pile on, it is important to be fair-minded and point out that what Mr. Wenzel was- and for all I know, still is- trying to do is actually pretty sensible.

What he calls "flirting" technique is really just game. What he calls "develop[ing] a more confident and interesting personality" is exactly what just about every single Manosphere and alt-Right writer will tell you is critically important in becoming better at being a man.

A man raised without strong masculine role models in his life- or at least, without such role models telling him how to deal specifically with women- has to figure such things out on his own. I can tell you from personal experience just how difficult this is. And very few, if any, men can truly withstand the soul-crushing burden of being truly alone.

It is human nature to want to form lasting connections, to pair-bond. It is masculine nature to want to pass along our genetic material, to sire offspring, and to bring forth children into the world- especially and most importantly sons.

So what Mr. Wenzel is proposing is not actually all that batshit insane. There are in fact good reasons to think that what he is proposing might be useful.

After all, helping incoming German "immigrants" figure out the notoriously cold and straight-laced Germanic women might help them adapt and assimilate into German society, by helping them become more fluent in the German language, understand German customs, immerse themselves in German history and lore, and partake of the rich tapestry of German cuisines and beverages.

... uh... right?

Wrong:
After more than 1,000 women were mugged, sexually assaulted, and raped by migrants last New Year’s Eve, the city of Cologne is considering using helicopters, registering all newcomers, and setting up “women retreats” to keep females safe this year. 
The official recommendations were made to police in a report, seen by Cologne’s Express newspaper, written by expert police who have analysed the events at the New Year’s Eve celebrations last year. [...] 
During the 2015/16 New Year’s Eve celebrations in Cologne city centre, hundreds of sexual assaults (including groping and at least five rapes) were reported. 
Witnesses described the attackers as “North African or Arab origin”. It later emerged that most suspects came from Algeria, Morocco, or Iraq, that many were claiming asylum in Germany, and 70 per cent of had been in the country for less than a year.
To be very clear, it is completely illogical and unreasonable to assign any blame whatsoever for the wave of sex crimes in Germany that have followed the mass invasion of hundreds of thousands of rapefugees from Arabic nations. Mr. Wenzel's work, and the work of others like him, does not encourage men to rape.

If anything, they are trying very hard, in their own misguided way, to stop Arab men from defiling German women.


The news report in that link was from March 2016- a full five months before the story about Mr. Wenzel's work was released. The Breitbart article above concerning police measures for New Years' Eve 2016 was from November.

By the Gatestone Institute's reckoning, and by that of any halfway honest organisation reporting on the issue, the situation in Germany has gotten worse in the past 12 months.

There are two major reasons why Mr. Wenzel's efforts were doomed to failure from the start.

The first has to do with the nature of the game itself. It might best be phrased in that overused, but still quite apropos, line about how "with great power comes great responsibility".

Y'see, as critically important as it is that strong and masculine men teach their peers and their juniors the value and uses of game, there are a few prerequisites and responsibilities that come with this power.

First and foremost among them is the clear understanding that the man in question needs to calibrate his own biases, cultural upbringing, and values to conform to the target culture that he is attempting to enjoy through gaming its women.

To take any number of examples from the stable of writers over at Return of Kings, for instance- Roosh V, Kyle Trouble, Jean-Batave Pouqueliche, etc.- all of them have gone to Eastern Europe for the express purpose of learning how to meet, have sex with, and date Eastern European women. Roosh V has taken his studies farther afield in South America. Relampago Furioso over at The New Modern Man has done so in the Caribbean and Asia.

The common thread through all of their work has been simple: get to know the culture you are in, approach it with an open mind, learn to adapt and assimilate, and if you don't like it, get the hell out.

Has that been the attitude of Mr. Wenzel's students? You be the judge:
The class got off to a rocky start. The migrants, unsure what to expect, sat with their coats on and their arms crossed, eyeing their cheerful coach suspiciously. 
Wenzel chatted about pick-up lines, paying compliments and original ideas for first dates. Impress and entertain the girls, Wenzel advised. Invite them to the theater, rock climbing, a concert, or take them on a trip to London or Amsterdam. That last piece of advice would probably work better for Wenzel’s regular clientele of rich Germans; asylum seekers aren’t allowed to leave the city they’re registered in, and don’t have the money to travel in any case. 
Then he moved on to sex. 
“Men and women have sex all the time — on the first, second or third date, that’s normal.” Wenzel said. “It’s not a big deal in Germany.” 
The men in the room giggled, but snapped to attention. 
When Wenzel moved onto the differences between male and female orgasms and how to arouse a woman, they fell silent again. Several men blushed and others looked down at the floor in embarrassment. 
One of the students became indignant, whispering in Arabic to his neighbor: “But having sex before marriage is a sin; it’s haram!” 
But there were moments of realization as well. 
Asked how to impress a German woman, one student suggested getting ripped at the gym. Wenzel countered that most women don’t go for the body-builder type. Another suggested picking up a date in a Ferrari. Wenzel said that would attract women interested only in money. The students readily agreed, perhaps because most were thin and quite aways [sic] from being able to afford a sports car. 
When class let out, most of the men said they’d learned a lot and were eager to put their new skills to use. 
But Kadib al Ban, the perky Syrian with the flowery pick-up lines, remained somewhat unconvinced. 
“I’d happily have a German girlfriend,” he said. “But when I get married, I want to have a girl from my country who shares my culture and my traditions.”
Again, what Mr. Wenzel is teaching is absolutely nothing new to any of us in the Manosphere. Attracting and keeping a good woman is not rocket science- at least, not in the sense that it is incomprehensible. It is like rocket science in the sense that it is simply bloody hard work.

But then, nothing good in life ever came from sitting on one's arse complaining. Success is a direct result of talent combined with effort and pain. That's simply how it is.

Judging by the article referenced above, the young men that Mr. Wenzel was attempting to coach didn't quite "get" that concept.

And that is due entirely to the second huge, and almost surely insurmountable, problem that Mr. Wenzel and his kind faces.

Game in Western, Latin American, Eastern European, and Asian cultures comes down to the same basic ideas over and over again: confidence, charisma, social proof. Some cultures emphasise wealth and looks more than others do, but if you have sufficient game, in these cultures you can make do and mend as required.

Game in Islamic cultures is rather different.

The role of women in Islamic cultures is profoundly different from what it is in Christian or pagan cultures. Women are not considered "equal" to men, either by tradition or law, as they are in the West. In Islamic tradition, they are regarded as decidedly inferior, to a degree that most Western and Asian minds find shocking.

Christian and many Confucian Asian cultures have a similar attitude with respect to a woman's place. The man is the head of the household, to be sure- but a woman's place is to support her husband, to raise the children and be the homemaker. This is a position of security and respect for any woman who wishes to be a wife; in return for her husband's love and protection, she gives him sexual access and promises fidelity to him. It is a mutually beneficial exchange that clearly establishes both rights and responsibilities for each party involved in a binding contract.

Islamic tradition is very different.

There is a clear hierarchy within Islamic tradition with respect to women. Islamic women rank highest- but they are still well below men in value. The women of non-believers are considered fair game for any Islamic man to take as captives and sex-slaves.

Women in Islam are given significantly less by way of rights, and probably significantly more by way of responsibilities, than their men. They can be divorced easily and quickly, in stark contrast to the Christian teachings with respect to marriage.

Let it be noted, this is how Islamic culture treats its own women. What do you suppose is going to happen when Muslims, who consider the world to be divided into dar al-Islam (the sphere of submission to Allah) and dar al-Harb (the sphere of war), take lessons from a German pickup artist about how to meet and seduce German women?

Simple answer is that they will attempt to impose their own values and morals upon their host culture- because that is what Islam does.


In spite of the very best of intentions, despite the best possible efforts on his part, Mr. Wenzel's attempt to build a bridge across cultures is almost surely doomed to failure.

Islamic culture is not interested in building the bridge in our direction- the sole exception being bridges deliberately designed to bring troops and supplies across into our lands and territories for the express purpose of conquest. Islamic culture is typically most interested in burning such bridges to the ground, as it has done time and again with every single culture that it has invaded, conquered, subjugated, and occupied.

Germany is currently on the very sharp end of a very painful lesson in history. It is no longer a question of if Germans will rise up and throw their invaders out, but when.

    Present day South Africa says otherwise.
