Remember when that ugly Maoist 18th wave feminazi made a scene when an ambiguously gay man had the nerve to speak to her in an elevator? Richard "Dick to the Dawk to the PhD" Dawkins said it was the biggest non-story of the year. The Amazing Atheist also did a fantastic video about the incident.
Well, Dawkins is right again.
A 14 year old boy from Texas, Ahmed Mohamed, took a digital clock out of its housing and put it in a suitcase so it looked like a fake bomb and brought it to school. He showed it to his teachers and after a few hours one teacher told him to put it away and focus on the lesson and then he caused a scene and was detained by the police for a couple of hours.
He was not a wiz-kid computer expert. Anyone could take the guts out of a digital clock and put it into a suitcase, which is exactly what he did. He did not "invent" anything. He didn't even assemble anything from a kit, he just removed the electronics from an already existing clock and presented it in such a way so that it looked like a fake bomb. Here's a picture, in case you have not seen it:
The boy's father is a Muslim activist. His sister gave him all the answers to say in every interview. The whole story of the genius kid being mistreated because he is a Muslim for bringing in a clock that looks exactly like a bomb just down the street where two men were killed by police when they tried to shoot up the Draw Mohammed event earlier this year, is a total crock of shit. It was a stunt, most likely orchestrated by the boy's father, possibly to make America look bad for picking on the poor defenseless Muslim boy.
And now the boy gets to meet the President! All for a cheap stunt. It's not like we haven't seen this kind of shit before.
Richard Dawkins said on Twitter:
“If this is true, what was his motive? Whether or not he wanted the police to arrest him, they shouldn’t have done so. If the reassembled components did something more than the original clock, that’s creative. If not, it looks like hoax.”
“He didn’t only claim to have built it. He claimed, on Youtube, that it was his INVENTION. … Possibly wanted to be arrested? Police played into his hands? Anyway, now invited to White House, crowdfunded etc.”
And Dawkins is absolutely right. This whole incident stinks like a stunt, and the media are eating out of (most likely) this kid's father's hands. They are the dumbest people on the planet who want to be destroyed. They dumb everyone down so they don't protest illegal wire tapping or invasion of at least 200,000 Syrian fake refugees in that no one can pay for.
