Obama has a vulgar habit of inserting himself into stories that have helpful left-wing narratives and leaping to conclusions before all the facts are in.
He’s done this again and again throughout his presidency – latching on to every opportunity to pit blacks against whites, criminals vs the police, Muslims vs Christians, etc.
“The police acted stupidly.”
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
“The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking…”
“We have some soul-searching to do. This is not new. It’s been going on for decades.” (On the death of Freddie Gray.)
“Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science.”
Obama likes to jump right in there and comment authoritatively on racially charged cases before they’ve been investigated and litigated — when those cases are helpful to a left-wing social justice narrative. Cases that are unhelpful to his far-left agenda, are completely ignored.
The double standard is so obvious and egregious, even a twelve year old kid can’t help but notice:
“Cool clock, Ahmed,” Obama tweeted, inviting the little provocateur to the White House, in an obvious show of disapproval and disdain towards the school and local police. No doubt Obama thinks they “acted stupidly.”
Even most of the conservative media say the police overreacted.
After enduring 7 years of Obama’s constant B.S. we no longer have working BS meters?
I thought it looked like a PR stunt from the get-go, but unlike our freaking president, I tend to keep my mouth shut when I’m not sure about something.
Well, now I’m sure.
Clock-boy and his dad are hoaxters. The kid should have been arrested for bringing a crudely-made hoax bomb to school.
Pam Geller was suspicious from the beginning, too:
Police officers said the electronic components and wires inside his Vaultz pencil case (which is the size of a briefcase) looked like a “hoax bomb,” according to local news station WFAA.
When questioned about what the device was, Mohamed wouldn’t answer. Now terror-tied Islamic groups like the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), their media lapdogs, and even Barack Obama are waging jihad against the school and the local police.
When police questioned the boy, WFAA reports, they said he was “passive aggressive” and didn’t give them a “reasonable answer” as to why he had brought his contraption to the school. “We attempted to question the juvenile about what it was and he would simply only say it was a clock. He didn’t offer any explanation as to what it was for, why he created this device, why he brought it to school,” said James McLellan of the Irving Police Department.
This whole thing smells like a setup.
When I first heard about this story, I wrote at my website that it smelled fishy. Now, as more details have emerged, it positively stinks. The plot has considerably thickened. In what has become one of the most egregious of the faked hate narratives, the bomb hoax clockster turns out to come from a family that has a history of supremacist stunts.
The New York Daily News reported this Wednesday about Ahmed Mohamed’s father, Mohamed ElHassan Mohamed:
One of the earliest instances of the standout citizen making national news was in 2011, when he sensationally stood up to an anti-Islamic pastor and defended the Koran as its defense attorney. That mock trial at a Florida church ended with the book’s burning, to ElHassan’s claimed shock. In an interview with the Washington Post at the time, the devoted Muslim said he’d take on Rev. Terry Jones’ challenge because the holy book teaches that Muslims should engage in peaceful dialogue with Christians.
Also in 2011, ElHassan debated Robert Spencer on the questionf of “Does Islam Respect Human Rights?” Clearly, he was trying to score a victory against a famous “Islamophobe” and thus win a name for himself. ElHassan has been looking for publicity and chances to fight against “Islamophobia” for a considerable period. Now he has seized it, going so far as to claim his son was “tortured” by school and law enforcement officials.
Something The Dallas Morning News reported jumped out at me:
He kept the clock inside his school bag in English class, but the teacher complained when the alarm beeped in the middle of a lesson. Ahmed brought his invention up to show her afterward.
“She was like, it looks like a bomb,” he said.
“I told her, ‘It doesn’t look like a bomb to me.’”
The teacher kept the clock. When the principal and a police officer pulled Ahmed out of sixth period, he suspected he wouldn’t get it back.
They led Ahmed into a room where four other police officers waited. He said an officer he’d never seen before leaned back in his chair and remarked: “Yup. That’s who I thought it was.”
Ahmed says he didn’t know the officer – but I suspect the officer knew who he was through his notorious father.
Now we find out the stupid thing was thrown together (not “built,” not “created,” certainly not “invented”) — literally thrown together to look like a briefcase bomb.
It’s the guts of a 1970s-era alarm clock “invented” not by little Ahmed – but by Micronta, a Radio Shack subsidiary, Catalog number 63 756, and thrown into a pencil case that looks like a briefcase.
A guy who makes and works with clocks explained on Youtube why Ahmed’s “invention” is a fraud.
An electrical engineer took a close look at Ahmed’s creation, and concluded that the school and the police did not in fact act stupidly.
…Ahmed Mohamad did not invent, nor build a clock. He took apart an existing clock, and transplanted the guts into a pencil box, and claimed it was his own creation. It all seems really fishy to me.
If we accept the story about “inventing” an alarm clock is made up, as I think I’ve made a pretty good case for, it’s fair to wonder what other parts of the story might be made up, not reported factually by the media, or at least, exaggerated.
I refer back again to this YouTube video interview with Ahmed. He explains that he closed up the box with a piece of cord because he didn’t want it to look suspicious. I’m curious, why would “looking suspicious” have even crossed his mind before this whole event unfolded, if he was truly showing off a hobby project, something so innocuous as an alarm clock. Why did he choose a pencil box, one that looks like a miniature briefcase no less, as an enclosure for a clock? It’s awful hard to see the clock with the case closed. On the other hand, with the case open, it’s awful dangerous to have an exposed power transformer sitting near the snooze button (unless, perhaps his invention was to stop serial-snooze-button pressers by giving them a dangerous electrical shock!)
So again, I’m pointing all this out – about the specifics of the clock – not to pick on the poor kid. I’m picking on us, our culture, and our media.
Don’t forget the president. First and foremost, he deserves to be picked on for stupidly calling an obvious hoax “science” before all the facts were known.
Like “clockwork”: the activist fam is cashing in.
