Just part of that cultural enrichment we need to get used to:
A (Musel-)man who held a large knife to a driver’s throat and threatened to kill him while yelling an Islamic exclamation will be in jail for less than a year.
Is Playing The Victim Becoming Trendy?
Janet Albrechtsen thinks so:
When “race” is a weapon, no wonder some change sides
The next question is equally obvious: has modern western culture created the perfect conditions for this sort of victimhood swindle? As academic Fredrik deBoer wrote in the Los Angeles Times last week: “Human behaviours are the product of incentives. We repeat behaviours that are rewarded.” And in Dolezal’s chosen realm — political activism and academia — “a set of social norms have created direct incentives for Dolezal’s behaviour — and forbidden anyone from checking on her story”.
That forbidding is particularly severe in Australia, thanks to our laws against free speech.
