Step 1: Make a lucrative career for yourself as a Muslim who constantly blasts the right wing as fascist, racist, misogynist, etc. Be as outspoken as possible in denouncing them while simultaneously aligning closely with the left despite all the anti-Islamic things the left stands for. Convince the Muslim community that their only option is political and electoral support of the left. Constantly promote voting and political activism to support the left. But, of course, stay silent on anything anti-Islamic coming from the left. And make sure to conveniently ignore all the damage that your white washing of left wing causes and ideologies do to the faith of the Muslim community, especially its youth.
Step 2: When the moronic right wing and its constituents inevitably clap back, pretend like you’re surprised and act like you are the victim of a grievous hate crime, even though, unlike real victims of hate crimes, you’re going to profit handsomely from your newfound victimhood status. Pretend like you are being penalized for “speaking truth to power” when in reality, you are a mouth piece for a powerful political party in the form of the left wing, that supports you with media access, academic appointments, and financial largesse.
Step 3: Use your self-declared victimhood to rally support from the Muslim community. Guilt them into “standing” with you and donating to you and your organizations. Convince them that they are, like you, on the verge of extermination and if they don’t pay up, they will be thrown into concentration camps. Cynically avoid acknowledging the simple fact that this is all part of the political game you have been playing since Step 1.
Step 4: Repeat.
Bonus: If anyone dares call you out for your shameless toying with the emotions of the Muslim community and essentially scare-mongering them for your personal gain, just accuse such detractors of being right-wing shills or out-of-touch extremists who are too un-nuanced/hateful/wahabi to understand the complexities of politics. Works every time!
