Here’s another one:
The Huffington Post here spectacularly illustrates the accuracy of my observation here: “When racist, bigoted ‘Islamophobes’ supposedly target Muslims, Muslims are victims. And when Muslims fake ‘Islamophobic hate crimes,’ Muslims are victims. Not only that, but when Muslims scream ‘Allahu akbar’ and murder infidels, Muslims are victims. Always and in every situation, Muslims are victims, to be appeased and accommodated in every possible way.”
Danielle S. McLaughlin writes: “Rather than call for an apology (what good would that do?) from the girl and her family, I believe we owe her an apology for not remembering that, even though she is well-spoken, she is still a child. She even told us, although it was while describing her fear at the fictitious attack: ‘I am a kid.’ Exactly.”
Would Danielle S. McLaughlin be this sympathetic and understanding if an 11-year-old non-Muslim girl had fabricated a story about being attacked by a Muslim? I don’t think so. In any case, McLaughlin’s reminders that Khawlah Noman is just eleven years old lead to an obvious question that McLaughlin never asks: did someone put this girl up to it? Are there forces behind her that were trying to use her to further the spurious narrative of Muslim victimhood that is being used to fuel attempts to shut down the freedom of speech in Canada?
Or if Khawlah Noman fabricated the story herself, why did she do so? Was she issuing a cry to help or trying to protect herself from a dangerous home situation, a la Yasmin Seweid? Even to raise such a question is “Islamophobic” in today’s ridiculous politically incorrect environment, and so the Huffington Post doesn’t raise it. But what if behind their airy avowals that Khawlah Noman is “just a kid” is an ugly reality about her being forced to wear the hijab by a threatening father? There are, unfortunately, abundant precedents. But don’t expect the Huffington Post, or anyone in the Canadian government or establishment media, to be “Islamophobic” enough to investigate such possibilities and, if necessary, step in to protect this girl.
