Spanish Men Fail to Protect Their Women

-Yet another example of what happens when Western men fail to act as, well, Western men.

"Six Spanish tourists were raped by a gang of armed, masked men in the Mexican resort of Acapulco, the latest chapter of violence that has tarnished the once-glamorous Pacific coast resort.

The vicious, hours-long attack occurred before dawn Monday at a house that six Spanish men, six Spanish women and a Mexican woman had rented on a quiet, idyllic stretch of beach on the outskirts of Acapulco.

The attackers gained access to the house because two of the Spaniards were in the yard and apparently were forced to open the door, Acapulco Mayor Luis Walton told a news conference late Monday.

The five attackers burst into the house and held the group at gunpoint, he said. They tied up the six men with phone cords and bathing suit straps and then raped the six Spanish women. The Mexican woman was not raped.

Guerrero state Attorney General Martha Garzon said the Mexican woman begged the men not to rape her and the assailsants told her they would spare her because she is Mexican.

"Fortunately we have strong evidence to lead us to those responsible for this reprehensible act," Garzon told Radio Formula.

The attack began about two hours after midnight Monday and the victims were only able to report the crime five hours later, at nearly seven in the morning........"

While we have the heroic example of a school bus driver who was shot to death for refusing to let a criminal take students off of his bus*, in this case we find not one man out of six who was willing to lay down his life and refuse to just let armed men harm the women who were vacationing with the group.

What value is one's life if you give it priority over that of others?

Of course, with six armed assailants, there was probably no way that the vacationers could "win the battle", but how can one expect to live with himself after choosing to allow the criminals to tie you up? Did they think that, following this, the females would only be robbed and otherwise be treated nicely?

Spain has a history chock full of brave men who would, regardless of the chances of survival, steadfastly and in an indignant manner, refuse to submit to allowing the weak to be victimized

Despite the consequences, I would much rather be remembered for telling the thugs to go ---- themselves than have to be untied by the rape victims after I made it easy for them to be attacked.

These women, whether they be wives, girlfriends, sisters, etc., deserved better. I could never show my face to any of them after failing to make any stand whatsoever in their defense, even if I knew that I would not survive.

The men of the West have sunk to levels unimaginable by any of their predecessors. They have chosen to believe that, as the Left tells them, men are no different from women and that the only thing of value is your own life.

What about your reputation? Your sense of shame?

As the Athenian lawgiver Solon is recorded (by Herodotus) to have told King Croesus of Lydia (The King being fabulously rich), no man can know if he is truly happy unless that happiness extends until, or occurs at, the point of his death. I don't believe that any of these men have much of a chance of dying with good memories of their lives.

They will be forever remembered as the men who chose their own lives at the expense of the women in their party.

"On Tuesday afternoon, Jimmy Lee Dykes, to whom Mr. Poland had given a gift of yard eggs and homemade jam days earlier, boarded Mr. Poland’s bus and handed him a note demanding that he hand over two young children. Mr. Poland opened the emergency door in the rear of the bus and blocked Mr. Dykes’s way as the children escaped. Mr. Dykes shot him four times and took a 5-year-old boy named Ethan, whom he has been holding in an underground bunker ever since." [That tragedy ended with the police shooting the jerk in a rescue operation]

  1. Pleistarchos,

    What too many Americans have never learend is that the west is an island of sanity in a sea of violence, brutality and savagery.

    They magnify our minor flaws into major social issues and compare us as the cultural equivalents of societies like Mexico, the Islamic World, and other third world basket cases in Asia, Africa, and, increasingly, degenerate western Europena Democracies.

    In the OVERWHELMING number of places on earth and in the OVERWHELMING number of time periods in the world's history, things were and are, just like Mexico.

    America is just one small light of sanity, decency, and hope - but that light is flickering because of the criminal in the White House and those idiots who support him.
