I couldn’t help but notice over the recent holidays that the Muslim slaughter of Nigerian Christians continued unabated while the rest of the world yawned cavernously and continued not giving the first damn about it. Huh. It seems as if the world’s concern for slaughters, genocides and the like is highly selective, situational and even contextual, if you will. Apparently, at places like Harvard for instance, the brilliant onsite intellectuals are able to discern exquisite layers of contextual nuance that is beyond the ken of most of us.
But that splitting of hairs over which genocides are objectionable and which are perfectly understandable given the context is like music to the ears of radical Muslims, as well as the unemployable rabble who incomprehensibly fill the streets of Western cities to cheer them on.
