Let’s be fair.
While I thought the case of 14 year-old Ahmed was unfortunate and sad, I also thought it altogether straightforward. He brought a homemade clock to school, and the teachers overreacted. They called the police and Ahmed was taken from the campus in handcuffs.
To me, it was tragic. And I had absolutely no reason to think there was anything suspicious in the story. Americans sometimes assume the worst about Muslims, that’s hardly breaking news. But now I’m seeing all sorts of questions being raised about Mohamed, the alleged ‘victim’. And this supposed ‘clock’.
The Real Story of #IStandWithAhmed
The hubbub surrounding Irving, Texas 14-year-old MacArthur High School student Ahmed Mohammed continues apace, with the President of the United States inviting him to the White House…
There’s only one problem: the whole story smells. It stinks of leftist exploitation.
People are apparently using the story to, exploiting this kid for, uhh seizing upon the blunder by…hmm. Could one of you sleuths fill me in?
Here’s what we know. On Monday, Mohammed brought a homemade clock to school. For those who don’t know the ins-and-outs of electronics, the device looked like a possible incendiary device.
Oh Thank God for Breitbart’s electromagnetics beat writers. I would have looked at the clock and simply thought ‘a clock’. Lucky for us they know better: It Really Looks Like A Bomb. Well, you’re the experts. And thank Providence that the Irving school district requires English teachers to have previous experience with timed explosives. I mean, what if nobody had arrested this kid? He’d have fooled everybody into thinking it looked like what it really was – a clock. He’d have gotten away with it.
Ahmed told the media that he made the clock last weekend and brought it to school to show his engineering teacher…He didn’t explain that to police, however, according to the authorities. And he didn’t just show the device to his engineering teacher. In fact, the engineering teacher told him not to carry the device around after…Why was the device in English class in the first place..? When confronted by police and his English teacher, why didn’t Mohammed just tell them to talk to the engineering teacher?
Clearly there’s something wrong with this young man. Ben recounts how the cops found him “passive aggressive” and evasive, and he wouldn’t even tell them what the clock was for (…telling time.). And this:
And according to the cops, Ahmed was significantly more cooperative with friendly media than with the police who came to ask some simple questions.
He’s a drama queen to boot. It figures, right? And his Dad’s an “anti-Islamophobia media gadfly” so obviously this whole affair was planned. C’mon – think about it for a second. Just how hard would it be to fool Texas cops into arresting a teenage Muslim? Sheesh. You can make these little schemes as complicated as you like, moonbats, but you’re still not gonna sneak one past these people. You’re certainly not fooling Sarah Palin:
Yep, believing that’s a clock in a school pencil box is like believing Barack Obama is ruling over the most transparent administration in history. Right. That’s a clock, and I’m the Queen of England.
Though that really is a pencil box, and an actual clock, Eskimope Parkaboobs here thinks that – hold on a second, the Queen Of England?! The WHAT?? But I thought you were from Ala…ooohh, I get it.
