    aka the little scam-rod bullshit artist.


    Real Time” host Bill Maher, an outspoken critic of Islam, lashed out at liberals who’ve been angrily “hashtagging” for 14-year-old Texas student Ahmed Mohamed who was arrested earlier this week because his homemade clock was suspected as a “hoax bomb.”
    “What if it had been a bomb?” Maher asked during Friday night’s show before sarcastically speaking in the voice of a sympathetic teacher: “Oh wait. This just must be my white privilege talking. I certainly don’t want to be politically correct, so I’ll just let it go.’”
    Bill Maher (Image source: YouTube)
    Maher pleaded for the left to exercise some realism and perspective on the issue, noting that ”you can see why they would err on the side of caution. Because only 25 miles away, somebody did try to kill people,” referencing the Draw Muhammad incident in Garland in May.
    The host agreed that the student deserved an apology, but he added that many liberals are making too big a deal out of what happened. ”He was arrested, and they took him off in cuffs and then they put him in a cage and burned him,” Maher said mockingly. “Oh no, that’s ISIS who does that.”
    “You know what, we put a kid after school for a couple of hours. This is not the end of the world,” he added. “But you know what? The end of the world does happen all over the world for millions of Muslims who are the victims of other Muslims, of their religion. Where are the liberals on this?”
    Maher added that he would like a Muslim adult to come alongside the 14-year-old and say “maybe one of the reasons why it happened to you is that in our religion we’re responsible for 9/11, the Madrid bombing, the London bombing, the Bali discotheque bombings, the Kenya mall …”
    “The lack of perspective on this is astounding,” Maher added.

    Richard Dawkins is going nuts on twitter as well. Dawkins said "if they really thought it was a bomb, why was there no evacuation?"

    Bill Maher has spent enough time with liberals to recognize the bullshit when it appears.

    Because they thought it may be a bomb, but its better to have it go off than shine a spotlight on a muslim given the fear of PC backlash. Alas it got out anyway, but everyone is scared of the pc police ruining their lives.

    The part I don't get is why make a clock? You connect an LED display (made to be a clock), to a power source to a computer chip - and you're done.

    I think somewhere in this kids head he was trying to figure out how you could use a clock to trigger other "things".

    Not a crime - but he was not just making a normal clock.

    In all fairness, when has a Muslim actually "invented" something? The worldwide patent statistics show that Muslim nations invent nearly nothing. Some idiot websites list "inventions" such as calculus which was given to the Greeks. The only problem there is that the "invention" took place before Islam existed. Dummies aren't good with their timelines.

    This kid just took apart an existing clock and put it in a small case. He then sealed the case, set an alarm to go off, and then tried to get a reaction from teachers of all types. Why did he show it to his English teacher?

    I've never heard of bringing something to school and showing it to every teacher unless you're trying to get a reaction.

    People confused it for a bomb due to the fact that I looked exactly like a fucking bomb.

    The weasel didn't invent anything. He took a digital clock out of its store bought case and the crudely packed it into a pencil case and made it look like a bomb. His dad is apparently a well known Muslim activist. He then immediately went to a lawyer afterwards. What an absolute pile of shit.

    Shame on the pres and the other shit heads that defended this weasel, because that is all he is.

    ...mark cuban was on that show and he said he contacted the school district and the police about the incident. it seems the boy did nothing to elevate the 6th period teachers fears and it was his unwillingness to talk about it that aroused suspicion. he went thru 6 class periods before anyone was called according to cuban.

    It was a plot plain and simple. Kid was put up to it by his father. None of this makes any sense in the context by which it was first reported. And idiots from the tech world and even Obama reaching out to this kid without knowing a single thing about what transpired is rather troubling.

    That's how stupid the boy's father is. He likely concocted this idea without considering that intelligent people might look beyond the surface of the story. The fact that his dad is a Muslim activist was going to come out. The school's recount of the day is going to come out. So this story that a kid was jailed for making a clock deteriorates rather quickly. I personally think that criminal charges for this hoax are warranted.

    I wonder if liberals would be outraged if the kids of KKK activists were handled a little bit roughly if they brought a black doll to school?

    At that kid's age, the story WILL come out, and out of his mouth. No fucking way without a little professional "coercion" will this kid keep his trap shut.

    Lefies would rather be blown up than risk offending anyone or being called racist.

    How Ahmed’s clock became a false, convenient tale of racism
    By Kyle Smith

    September 19, 2015 | 2:35pm

    The homemade clock that Ahmed Mohamed brought to schoolPhoto: AP


    When is America going to get serious about the problem of white kids getting suspended from school for nothing?

    By now you’ve heard the story of Ahmed Mohamed, crowned by the Daily Beast “The Muslim Hero America Has Been Waiting For” after the 14-year-old brought to school a beeping, strange-looking homemade concealed device that turned out to be a clock.

    School officials, thinking, as 95% of Americans would, that it kinda looked like a bomb, hauled him out of class. Police put him in handcuffs and, even after the confusion passed, the boy was suspended from school.

    That earned Mohamed a planned trip to the White House, a message of support from Hillary Clinton, an offer to stop by Facebook to meet Mark Zuckerberg and an invitation to be an intern at Twitter.

    The police overreacted. Yet the device did look like something Ethan Hunt would lob out of a helicopter at the last minute in “Mission: Impossible.” As National Review’s Charles Cooke pointed out on Twitter, the scary-looking tangle of wires “looks a lot more like a bomb than a pop tart looks like a gun.”

    Josh Welch, a white Maryland kid with ADHD who was 7 years old when he was kicked out of school for chewing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a pistol and pretending to shoot other students with it, must be puzzled.

    Where’s his White House invitation? Where’s his chance to start networking at Facebook? His parents were forced to hire a lawyer and spent a year and a half just trying to get the suspension erased from the kid’s record. They were repeatedly refused.

    “I stand with Ahmed, too. But I also stand with Alex Stone,” noted Reason writer Robby Soave. Alex Stone, a 16-year-old white kid from Summerville, SC, wrote a short story in which he imagined using a gun to kill a dinosaur. For this his locker was searched and he was arrested, handcuffed, charged with “disorderly conduct” and suspended from school for three days.

    Obviously the White House and Mark Zuckerberg couldn’t be bothered to comment, but you’d think that, at the very least, Stephen King would have sent out a tweet expressing outrage that imagination was being punished.

    Nada.

    In Dyer County, Tenn., Kendra Turner says she was suspended for saying, “Bless you” after a student sneezed, and that her teacher told her that she would have no “godly speaking in class.”

    A school administrator said, “This was not a religious issue at all, but more of an issue the teacher felt was a distraction in her class.” Uh-huh. School leadership offered no explanation for the photos posted by students that showed “bless you” on a list of expressions banned in the classroom. Turner is still waiting for her call from President Obama.

    Are white kids being punished en masse for dopey quasi-infractions because of their race? Of course not. That’s ridiculous.

    But it’s equally absurd to suggest that you have to be Muslim, or brown-skinned, or live in Texas, to be subjected to overenthusiastic use of school discipline and police force.

    “It never would have happened to a white kid”? It happens to white kids all. The. Time.

    The main difference between the Ahmed Mohamed case and the others is that the mainstream media and the leftist point of view it presents just can’t let go of Ahmed. Ahmed is too useful to their narrative to be a one-day story.

    That Bristol Palin said on Facebook that President Obama didn’t need to get involved in the situation proved irresistible for the media, which loves to depict America as a bitter standoff between red-state hicks on the one hand and sophisticated members of the cool bicoastal techno-media club on the other.

    Let’s just savor for a moment that the musings of the daughter of an unemployed former governor constitute national news. This year the brother of a sitting president made derogatory comments about the leader of the free world and the reaction from the media was crickets.

    Malik Obama gets the courtesy of being ignored because he has also said some crazy things. Now imagine Bristol Palin making loony statements. Would the media decline to cover them?

    For 14 years and two weeks now, the left has been desperate to find some evidence, any evidence, that Muslims in general are facing deep-seated discrimination because a few Muslims attacked us on 9/11.

    That American Muslims have instead mostly been treated with respect and courtesy ought to be a point of pride, but at no point will the left ever say, “Isn’t it great that we’re such a pluralistic and tolerant country?”

    The left-led push to turn a man who was, as of 2004, an obscure state senator with no particular accomplishments, into the president four years later, was centrally and crucially about race. Everyone else was being subjected to a bait-and-switch.

    Instead of being credited with enlightenment for being the only white-majority country ever to elect a black leader, now we’re told that everything is about racism.
