Clock-bomb boy Ahmed Mohammed is “a hoaxer and a huckster, just like his kook dad”

Did you see that story about the 14-year-old kid in Dallas, Ahmed Mohamed, who made a home-made clock, took it to school but because he’s a Muslim, his teacher called the principal and they called the cops who arrested him, interrogated him and suspended him because they thought he was making a bomb?

  • Apparently his family is also blocking the release of records. They don’t want anyone to know what really happened.

    Though he’s a known conspiracy theorist, Cuban is one of the few smart tycoons who isn’t showering Ahmed with free stuff.

    Hey, it only takes 20 seconds.

    Missing is one rather important fact: a clock is often a vital part of a time bomb: add explosive and detonator, wire the whole thing up, and instead of an alarm sound, you get a “boom”.

    Once again Obama comes out looking like a race-baiting asshole.

    The Bo Bergdahl of clock makers and obama just loves him. obama is a fucking terrorist.

      Well, idiot maybe.

  • If this kid was some punk from an upper-middle-class white neighbourhood, there would be no shortage of people waiting to wring his neck.

    Who says there are no double standards?

    Zuckerberg, Obama, Ellen DeGeneres and the rest have Islamophobiaphilia. That is, they absolutely love it when those with “white privilege” reveal themselves to be bigots, even when it turns out that the whole thing’s a hoax.

      That would be Islamophile.

    I don’t know how reliable it is but I read that someone cloud sourced for him to be able to go to college and continue his extraordinary work in electronics. $100,000 dollars raised.

      He’ll get an undergrad degree in Disassembly.

    Can we be alarmed if a Muslim brings a suitcase bomb on a Plane .
    No . It could just be a clock designed to look like a bomb. No need to over react.

  • Maggat

    Gotta love that Ezra!

    It’s obviously an AC powered alarm clock – all the pictures show the power cord + a 9v battery back up. Exactly how did the alarm go off in English class? Did the kid plug it in?

    I understand Omar Khadr is seeking a trade. Maybe the American electronics “genius” can train Omar in clock repair?
