"Treating Muslim kids like human beings" is something that professional loser Sarah Palin won't stand for in her little myopic view of America.
In a winding Friday night post, Palin aired her suspicions that the “obstinate-answering” boy was really up to no good and Irving police and school officials have been wrongly maligned in the “reactionary-slash-biased media!” The case hasgenerated outrage amid the belief that Mohamed was arrested due to anti-Muslim bias and not any genuine threat posed.
“Yep, believing that’s a clock in a school pencil box is like believing Barack Obama is ruling over the most transparent administration in history. Right. That’s a clock, and I’m the Queen of England,” Palin opined. Throughout the post, she spelled Mohamed’s name “Muhammad,” which is the spelling commonly used in the English-speaking world for the prophet of Islam.
“Friends, consider the kids disciplined and/or kicked out of school for bringing squirt guns to school or taking bites out of a pop tart until it resembled (to some politically correct yahoo) a gun,” Palin rambled. “Or the student out deer hunting with his dad early one morning who forgot he had a box of ammo in his truck when he parked in the school’s lot later that day. Kids humiliated and intimidated for innocent actions like those real examples are often marked the rest of their lives and made to feel really rotten. Whereas Ahmed Muhammad, an evidently obstinate-answering student bringing in a homemade “clock” that obviously could be seen by conscientious teachers as a dangerous wired-up bomb-looking contraption (teachers who are told “if you see something, say something!”) gets invited to the White House.”
She then criticized President Obama, who invited Mohamed to the White House in response to the outcry, for taking advantage of the situation.
“By the way, President Obama’s practice of jumping in cases prematurely to interject himself as the cool savior, wanting so badly to attach himself to the issue-of-the-day, got old years ago,” she wrote.
Palin then urged fans to compare Mohamed’s clock enclosed in a pencil box to what she thought was a much more innocent-looking pink pencil box at her own home.
First of all, Palin really is a hateful person. It's no wonder she's angry all the time, she's not even bright enough to figure out what a digital clock looks like. Again, want to thank John McCain and 55 million American voters for almost putting this woman in our government as Vice President.
Second of all, that silly pop tart gun story is tragically stupid and Palin is far from the only wingnut screaming that it's unfair that this kid didn't get invited to the White House too. But that's not the issue, is it? It's a nice deflection though from the real issue: a 14-year old was interrogated by the cops without a lawyer, and people didn't exactly line up to attack John Welch for his pop tart gun, unlike Palin and loads of right wing idiots who are convinced that Mohamed Ahmed didn't really build a clock at all or in fact had to have been making an actual bomb.
In other words, people upset that Ahmed is going to the White House are even more upset that Muslims aren't being rounded up and put in camps anyway. You kind of lose your moral high ground over that. When the response is to make this child and his family a target that must be exterminated by the right, well...
You tell me who's the good guy here.
