Mumbai and the PC MC Cookbook
With each outrage perpetrated by Muslims since 911 to the present—including Madrid, London, Moscow, Bali, and now Mumbai, as well as countless other examples of Islamic pathology, such as murderous cartoon riots, teddy bear riots, Miss Universe riots, murders of Christians over a Papal lecture, etc. ad nauseam—the PC MC paradigm in the West gets stronger, not weaker. Westerners have become more solicitous, more deferential, more respectful of Muslims, not less.
This paradoxical phenomenon is patently perverse and irrational. But it is not illogical. It follows the internal logic of the PC MC paradigm.
That internal logic may come to relief through the following adumbration of ingredients of the paradigm.
1. An overt and conscious fear that the West (or subsets of the West) will go from the thought crime of "bigotry" inexorably down the “slippery slope” to genocide against a predominately non-white non-Western people.
a. Short of actual genocide: a fear that the West (or subsets of the West) will become overtly and institutionally “racist” against Muslims through a variety of policies, including unethically prejudicial and "disrespectful" mistreatment of Muslims still strictly within the law, as well as illegally prejudicial mistreatment of Muslims enabled by governmental obfuscation and undemocratic power blocs (e.g., the Patriot Act)—including such things as unethical or unlawful detainment of Muslims for questioning; up from there, the unethical or unlawful surveillance and harassment of Muslims; all the way up to rounding up Muslims, interning Muslims, deportation of Muslims, and/or the countenancing of a climate of “hate crimes” against Muslims on a widespread scale.
2. An unconscious, or semi-conscious, fear of Muslims and of Islamic violence—a fear that remains unconscious, or semi-conscious, due to willful suppression, denial and pathological obfuscation, and more or less following the perversely paradoxical logic of Auster's Law of Majority/Minority Relations.
3. The twin axioms that are at the heart of PC MC:
a. A self-criticism of the West that is so extreme it reaches irrational, and often morbid proportions.
b. An approbation of non-Western cultures that is so extreme it reaches irrational, and often grotesque proportions.
4. A reminder: Muslims have become the “Poster Children” of the Third World—and by extension of the non-West, and of the “Other” par excellence. In the twisted lexicon of PC MC, the “Other”, of course, is an “imperialist” and “racist” fabrication by the West. However it is, at the same time, a really different culture to be “respected”. Thus, in the PC MC view, it is not “Otherness” per se that is the problem, it is the posture we adopt in response to that “Otherness”: If we remain “respectful” of that “Other” and admire its “alternative” ways while at the same time remembering to mock and denigrate our own benighted, provincial ways, then all is copacetic. But as soon as we begin showing the slightest hint of “judging” that “Other” and give off the slightest whiff of affecting any sense of superiority over the “Other”, then the wrath of PC MC falls upon us and we are demonized as “racist”, “imperialist” and “fascist”. The massively documented fact that the Islamic Other routinely practices and preaches supremacism, intolerance, hate, bigotry, homophobia, misogyny, and many other anti-liberal sins, is simply denied by the PC MC mind—and if one calls attention to this massive data, the PC MC mind immediately shoots the messenger and accuses him of “hatred” motivated by “racism”, “imperialism” and “fascism”.
Put six heaping cupfulls of #1 in a bowl.
Look the other way while sifting in generously copious amounts of #2, and be sure to stir together so that #2 can no longer be seen in the mix. If needed, add sugar and spice to help camouflage #2 in the mix.
Transfer to a larger container and pour in 10 gallons of #3a and #3b in equal amounts.
Let sit for a few decades at room temperature.
Pre-heat oven to 911 degrees.
Using an electric cream-whipper, dissolve huge inert chunks of #4 into the batter, then drain into a blender and mix for 30 seconds on the "jihad" setting.
Apportion generous amounts into muffin pans, bake in oven for as long as it takes to forget.
Let cool for a few minutes.
Feeds the whole family, neighborhood, society, West.
Serve with Kool-Aid.
