A famous French saying goes that ‘Après la fête, la défaite’ which literally translates as the loss comes after the win and needs to be interpreted as saying that after a night of partying and good times, you have to deal with the consequences.

So it is as well for the French capital Paris (and other cities like Nantes and Marseille) which, a few days after the euphoria of winning the world cup, wakes up to the surprise of hundreds of women who have gathered on the hashtag #MeTooFoot complaining about how they were sexually assaulted during the World Cup celebrations of Sunday in Paris.

Whereas in the first morning after most of the world was still watching the riots and broken shop windows (see our related coverage, apparently a normal phenomenon in France after sporting wins), a few days later the first reports of women being sexually assaulted during the Paris celebrations are starting to come out as well.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">So France won the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/WorldCup?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#WorldCup</a>.

Grouped under the hashtag #MeTooFoot, hundreds of women have so far shared their stories about how ‘youngsters’ touched them, assaulted them, or tried to threaten them by grouping around them.

Some of the stories so far (translated from French):

“A man grabbed my breasts and when I pushed him away he said. We have won, what did you expect?”

A young woman described how a youngster took off his clothes in front of her and dragged her into the toilet: ‘We are World Champion, we’re all going to hell.’

“I would like to thank the France fan who thought it was ok to touch my bottom and vagina during the celebrations. I feel bad, very bad. “

Seeing the overflow of messages on social media, the Parisian police chief Mr. Michel Delpuech went onto national tv today and urged all women to file official complaints.

On Twitter, some are already calling it Cologne 2.0 in reference to the hundreds of women in the German city of Cologne that were assaulted during New Year’s Eve celebrations in 2016.

If you've been assaulted TAKE ACTION! #MeToo

Anonymous No. 31650 1531952937

Why is the colour, nationality, general description and ethnicity of the attackers conspicuously missing from the above piece?

If women are in greater danger when around a certain section of the population, then this fact should be made known to them, whatever faction the predominant predators is.

Maybe they should start a violent revolution against a government that quite obviously prevents women from protecting themselves with deadly force.

Islam saying thank you France! For being idiots and letting them into your land, placing your citizens at much greater risk of harm by rape, terror and barbarianism of muslims
