Even when I was a Democrat, I detested Bill Maher but everyone now and then this Marxist consignment of cow dung gets it right as he did Friday night when discussing the outrage of his fellow Marxists over the arrest of 14-year-old Ahmed Muhammad.
‘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…..’’
“For the last 30 years it has been one culture blowing s— up.” FACT! But don’t tell that to a Muslim or a Progressive.
As far as I am concerned, Mohamed built a clock in a suitcase that fit the profile of a bomb, which he then took to school to impress teachers with his capabilities of inventing things. That was the beginning of his troubles.
Sometime during the day, the clock rang in Mohamed’s backpack, which led to a teacher contacting authorities who then arrested the student charging him for ‘making a ‘hoax bomb’.’
His father who suggested that he take the clock to school should have known better unless, of course, there was an ulterior motive.
In any event, Progressives with their Muslim counterparts, many of whom are aligned with jihadists have embarked upon a campaign against the school and law enforcement, accusing them of racism, victimizing Mohamed, yada, yada, yada.
Texas law enforcement has now dropped all charges even though the Muslim community will now label this boy a hero/victim and sue the pants off the school district and Texas law enforcement.
Teachable moment: It is perfectly fine to harass and suspend American children for lesser infractions (so-called infractions) but leave the Muslim kid alone at least until his or her backpack goes BOOM!
As it turns out, Ahmed is also the son of Sufi Dallas imam Mohamed Elhassan, who once ran for the presidency in Sudan on the platform that, if elected, he would lift sanctions the U.S. imposed on Sudan in the late 1990s because of that nation’s alleged sponsorship of terrorism. Mr. Elhassan was also embroiled in controversy when he acted as a defense attorney on behalf of the Quran when Florida Pastor Terry Jones threatened to burn the Islamic holy book.
Despite young Ahmed being treated more respectfully than other children half his age who’ve been punished for doing things far less …..
The bottom line is that when school officials and law enforcement attempted to question Mohamed, the son of radical Islamist, Mohamed Elhassan, he refused to offer an explanation.
Yet there is more, which should give not just law enforcement, but all Americans reason to suspect ulterior motives as written by Pamela Geller in her article, Ahmed Mohamed and the ‘Islamophobia’ Clock (Breitbart) maybe at the moment, not from Ahmed but dear old daddy, Mohamed Elhassan in search of a good crisis.
…in 2011, ElHassan debated Robert Spencer on the question 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….
By fundamentally transforming Ahmed Mohamed into a victim, the left and Muslims in America have in one swoop hog-tied the hands of law enforcement and school officials.
At the same time, they have swung open the door to teen jihadists who will no longer think twice before carrying a bomb or suicide vest in their backpack.
