Why the ignorant masses remain ignorant

Back in 2013, the New York Times ran an article by Alexandra Brodsky that admonishes us:

Yet in the face of this violence, we demand that the victimized sacrifice their freedom and adjust their behavior so we don’t have to disturb the status quo.

If we were, instead, to acknowledge the sweeping inequalities that drive sexual assault, we would have to re-examine the structure of our whole society – and that would be inconvenient, wouldn’t it?

The Huffington Post, back in 2011, ran an article by Hayley Rose Horzepa that informs us:

Victim blaming, however, is a huge part of our culture. I’m sure you’ve heard these all-too-classic lines, probably more than once:

  • “She was dressed provocatively.”
  • “She had a bad reputation.”
  • “She should have known better than to put herself in that situation.”

Let’s talk about convenience, and let’s talk about victim-blaming. Let’s talk about Imam Sami Abu-Yusuf of Cologne, Germany. A recent Breitbart article describes his reaction to the mass rapes of this New Year (which were primarily by Muslim migrants against native European women):

Explaining in the view of Salafist Islam why hundreds of women found themselves groped, sexually assaulted and in some cases raped by gangs of migrant men in cities across Germany the Imam said: “the events of New Year’s Eve were the girls own fault, because they were half naked and wearing perfume. It is not surprising the men wanted to attack them. [Dressing like that] is like adding fuel to the fire”.

Here’s a screenshot from a Google search for Imam Sami Abu-Yusuf:

Imam SamiNot one of the 25 largest US newspapers* appears on the first page of results. In fact, none of them appear on the first five pages of results either; it’s likely that none of these top 25 US newspapers reported his statements at all. The New York Times, and Huffington Post, which were both outspoken about blaming rape victims, are both silent when the one doing the blaming is an imam. Perhaps it would be “inconvenient” for them to report it. Perhaps it’s a “huge part of their culture” to ignore it.

Unless you read right-wing blogs and news sites, you will be ignorant of stories such as the above. It’s true that the statements of one man don’t amount to much, but this story is not alone in being ignored by the left Establishment press. Hundreds, if not thousands, of similar stories are also ignored by the largest newspapers. At the same time, stories that do fit their narrative (that “people of color” are oppressed, and white men are the oppressors) are featured prominently for long periods of time.

More than anything else, it’s exposure to news stories that shape a person’s political identity. Once a person is molded into a liberal, by years of exposure to selective reporting, that person will recoil at the sight of alternative news; it will offend him, and strike him as “Islamophobic” or “racist.” In this sense, liberals and Muslims are very much alike; they’re both adherents to religions that are intolerant of alternate views of the world.

    Curiously enough, the white liberal is public enemy number 1 in any society they
    are in. They actually promote the suicide of the white race, and believe that they
    are personally exempt.
    Could this be a case of delusion like Anne Frank who said that “people were good at heart”
    as the Nazis took her to her death? No sane person, or race WANTS to commit suicide.
    Or is it a case of denial, ignorance, are even demonic posession? Satan DOES exist.
    Remember the saying: “Satan’s biggest trick would be to convince the world that he doesn’t
    exist.”
    There’s certainly evil here. Like a person who tampers with a highway sign, and purposely
    directs cars to go over a cliff.
    Or a twisted sense of “moral equvalency” that “shares” top state secrets with the enemy
    because the “wicked” United States can’t be trusted to be the sole superpower on Earth.

    It’s not only Salafist Islam. It’s moderate, middle-of-the-road Islam. The sort that is taught at Al-Azhar university in Cairo (the closest thing to a worldwide arbiter of doctrine Islam has). Listen to this theology professor from Al-Azhar justifying sexual slavery and rape of the enemy’s women on Egyptian television, more than a year before the mass rapes occured throughout Europe. A female theology professor, I should add :

    http://www.memri.org/clip/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/5252.htm

    A female, Muslim, veiled theology professor, which demonstrates what the Muslim headscarf really is : a call for rape of non-veiled women.

    Just in case you were wondering, “professor” Suad Saleh is not giving a lecture on what Muslims thought proper one thousand years ago ; she’s telling present-day Muslims how they should behave.

    She even volunteers an example : raping Israeli women would be perfectly legal for Muslims, since (in her warped Muslim mind) Israel is waging war on Palestinians.

    It gets even more perverted : her “theology lesson” actually purports to teach Muslim men to behave, and refrain their base instincts. The point of her speech is to scold Muslims who bring a non-official second wife from Asia in their homes, and who justify it by the ancient law of sexual slavery. Not so, she says : you can only own a woman as your sexual slave if she belongs to a people at war with Muslims.

    So in her own, warped mind, this, er… “lady”, is a moderate Muslim, preaching moderation to her male folks, who could otherwise be tempted to rape women in an unlawful way.

    Believe it or not, there were two notable cases of American JEWISH women who left
    America for Islamic countries because they thought they would find paradise there.
    One, came from a wealthy family, and left for 3rd world Pakistain in the early 1960’s.
    We see her shortly after her arrival, with a bag over her face. She wrote pro Muslim
    polemics (and later books) as an “educator.” She happily assumed the role of a Muslim
    wife, and gave birth to multiple children (Whom she neglected) in unsanitary conditions.
    Another Jewish woman converted and became the bride of a royal family in Afganistan.
    She endured dirty, tourtrious treatment like a slave and sought escape. With some
    difficulity she did.
    This is what liberal misperception, and media propaganda can do to people.
    Coupled with “commitment and consistecy,” it can lead you to your grave.
