Impish comedian Aziz Ansari just penned an essay for The New York Times to complain about how scared Trump makes him and his Muslim family. Only a few short weeks after the attacks we are lamenting the incredible danger Muslims are in and worrying about how a candidate’s idea may affect people if it becomes law and is then put into a time machine and sent back to when they immigrated here. How’s that for Islamophobiaphobia? His parents come from India where Muslims slaughtered millions of Hindus despite being rewarded their own country. Many fled to America where they quickly became the most successful people in the nation. With a median income of $101,591, they are above Taiwanese, Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, Lebanese, and finally white Americans, who come in at a mere 16th place after Nigerian-Americans. Hasan Minhaj is another Indian Muslim who keeps getting affirmative-action handouts because we feel so terrible for his people. We are so scared of being racist we are refusing to acknowledge they are kicking our asses. 60 Minutes just did a feature on corruption on Wall Street and didn’t even notice that every single person in their story was Indian (or East Asian). Sorry, but you can’t waltz into a country, dominate them financially, and then complain about how “dangerous” it is. As Coulter points out when confronting wealthy Mexican students, blacks have a history that includes slavery. You just got here. You can’t indulge in the American dream while whining about how scary it is. That’s the textbook definition of privilege.
Aziz dragged out all the emotional tropes that pass for facts these days: Only a tiny minority of Muslims are terrorists. Moderate Muslims don’t tolerate it. There were no Muslim celebrations on 9/11, etc., etc. Why is it every time a bad Muslim murders people, we start worrying about good Muslims’ feelings? Shapiro and Crowder already did a great job of refuting the extremist-minority myth. When calculating those numbers, you discover that an alarming number of “moderates” think “suicide bombing is sometimes or often justified.” With young American Muslims, it’s one in four. On CNN’s Why They Hate Us Saturday night, I saw Fareed Zakaria argue that animosity from extremist Islam comes from the fact that we don’t assume our Bangladeshi cabdriver is a terrorist even though he’s Muslim. Actually, Fareed, their hatred comes from the part of the Koran that explicitly says, “Hate Us.” I have spoken to cops who saw Muslims celebrating during 9/11 (with my own eyes I saw Puerto Ricans screaming, “Bomb that shit, nigga” as the towers fell, but that’s another story). Jesse Hughes told me he saw Muslims dancing in the street during the Bataclan shootings. Are we really still trying to pretend a wildly disproportionate number of Muslims don’t tolerate jihad?
We don’t have a Muslim problem in America, yet. However, we’ve seen what happened in Britain, and judging by the Brexit results, so have they. To ignore the fact that the West is the best is to create a vacuum that enables other, more primitive cultures to come in and replace us. We don’t want that and neither do they, ultimately. That’s why they came here in the first place! Indian Muslims are the last people who should be telling us how to live. The Ansaris come from Tamil Nadu where honor killings are rampant. The Orlando shooter’s family is from Afghanistan where pedophilia is a rite of passage. The Minhajes come from Aligarh where gang rapes are commonplace. The Zakarias come from Mumbai where terrorists just murdered 164 people. Trump would be the first president since Reagan to recognize our superiority and refuse to apologize for being a Western chauvinist. We created the modern world, you’re welcome.
