A recent hate crime incident has been making its rounds on the internet and has provoked an uproar from armchair Samaritans lamenting the end of civilization. An Egyptian born Muslim woman was verbally and physically accosted on the NYC subway by three drunk men. They continued pestering her despite her calls to desist.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, was still shaken by the traumatic train ride as she spoke with CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco…Seweid said no one stopped the men, not even when they tried to tear off her hijab.
She reported the incident to the police and then dutifully took to social media to air her distress. After all, distress lacks legitimacy unless it’s broadcasted to the world via social media. In one of her statements to the press she lamented that while she identifies as a proud American she is dismayed that others don’t recognize her American-ness.
I suppose it is futile to explain to such people that humans are not culturally interchangeable. That no matter how hard she tries, she will never be as American as John Smith; no more than the latter could be Egyptian even if he were born and raised in Egypt. It would be equally futile to point out that the real villains are not the natives who are inundated with a legion of culturally alien immigrants, but the liberals who import them in bulk. For if whites are intrinsically rotten, then why subject hapless immigrants to the innate perfidy of their hosts? Furthermore, if these characteristics are indeed innate (as leftists love to preach) then isn’t it is a fool’s errand to try and reform whites by ridding them of their ‘racist’ ways?
There are, however, two silver linings – one for us and the other for Ms Seaweed. I was relieved when I learned that nobody interfered in her defense. Men that interfere to protect women in public generally take on a massive and unnecessary risk; and it usually doesn’t end well for them. As contemptible as obsequious internet white knights truly are, white knighting in real life will probably get one killed. Also see here and here. Rescuing women is best left for law enforcement.
It is heartening to see men finally put their own interests before those of the opposite sex; especially since the latter have been doing just that for the past 5 decades. Women seem genetically incapable of appreciating men’s sacrifices and so men must refrain from protecting women unless they happen to be a close friend or blood relative. Men must collectively communicate to women in no uncertain terms that male protection and provisioning are a part and parcel of patriarchy. That women shouldn’t expect men to make such sacrifices while living in a feminist paradise.
Having said all of this, recall that earlier this year a group of passengers rescued two Muslim women from being accosted on the subway. The difference between the two incidents is obvious – in the latter the ‘assailant’ was working alone. Perhaps liberal paladins only engage the forces of darkness when they outnumber them 5 to 1. As for the unlucky Ms Seaweed, she can draw solace from knowing that she has been formally added to the ever growing pantheon of victims – to be revered and worshiped alongside other victims in accordance with the doctrines of the Liberal religion.
