BILL O'REILLY: "Unresolved Problems" segment tonight. Viewer warning, we're going to show you some tape that's disturbing. As you may know millions of refugees have flooded into the European continent, mostly from Syria, Iraq and North Africa. On New Year's Eve, hundreds of women in Germany were sexually assaulted by roving bands of Semitic man. So far only one man has been charged and the Chief of Police of Cologne, Germany, was fired because he tried to cover things up. This goes back to political correctness and politics. The primary reason that refugees are overrunning Europe right now is because of the failed Western policies dealing with ISIS and Iran. Some European leaders have encouraged the mass migration and those folks are in big trouble and that's because scenes like this in Sweden are becoming common.

[...]

O'REILLY: This is more than an individual problem here. What do you say, Katie?

KATIE PAVLICH: Look, what we are seeing in Sweden and in countries all over Europe which actually has been happening for a long time. It's not just a recent thing but what we have been seeing, this result of this progressive idea that multiculturalism trumps assimilation. And also this idea that cultures around the world no matter where they are are the same. That's not true. We are seeing that now as countries like Sweden import rape culture into their societies and then wonder why they are having an increase in rapes.

O'REILLY: You're saying rape culture. What's the rape culture?

PAVLICH: Bill, well, they are importing thousands of men from countries as you just explained. Countries that embrace rape for men as something that is acceptable in those countries. These men are coming from societies where misogyny is accepted on an extreme level. The tactics that we're seeing, the tactics that we saw in Cologne, Germany on New Year's Eve of men surrounding women. Tearing them away from their friends, tearing off their clothes that is actually a very normal practice we see in Arab countries. It happened to Lara Logan during the Arab spring --

O'REILLY: Some Arab countries.

PAVLICH: In most of them, Bill. We saw it in Egypt. We see it now and now we are seeing it happen in Europe.
