According to the author of this nonsense, who goes by the name of Maeril, this guide is for bystanders who witness conversations or behavior that Leftists and Muslims consider “Islamophobic.” Hey, Maeril, how about a guide for bystanders who witness a Muslim with a knife slashing people on a train or bus?
Buzzfeed According to Maeril: “This is an illustrated guide I made as part of my co-admining work at The Middle Eastern Feminist on Facebook! It will be published there shortly. The technique that is displayed here is a genuine one used in psychology — I forgot the name and couldn’t find it again so if you know about it, feel free to tell me!
(Yes, Maeril, it’s called: “The Leftist’s Guide to persuading people that Muslim supremacists actually are helpless little snowflakes”)
I’d like to insist on two things, says Maeril:
1) Do not, in any way, interact with the attacker. You must absolutely ignore them and focus entirely on the person being attacked!
2) Please make sure to always respect the wishes of the person you’re helping: whether they want you to leave quickly afterwards, or not! If you’re in a hurry escort them to a place where someone else can take over — call one of their friends, or one of yours, of if they want to, the police. It all depends on how they feel!
The first step is to engage the Muslim ‘victim’ in conversation, ignoring the ‘Islamophobic’ aggressor.
Attempt to make small talk about anything, just so long as you’re making the Muslim ‘victim’ being harassed feel “safe.”
Then just keep going until the ‘Islamophobe’ completely runs out of steam.
And lastly, if things really haven’t calmed down, try to bring the Muslim ‘victim’ being harassed to a “safe space.”
