Comedian Bill Maher is certainly no conservative, but even he agrees that both Democrats and Republicans should be able to find some common ground when it comes to radical Islam.
Take, for example, the ridiculous outcry over the arrest of a Muslim teenager in Texas who brought a homemade ‘clock’ to school.
Even though radical Islamic terrorists continue to blow people up around the world everyday, the entire country has to fall over itself apologizing for being racist and Islamophobic because this teens lookalike bomb-clock didn’t go off and kill a bunch of innocent children.
We now live in a country where school children are being suspended for drawing guns on paper or eating breakfast pastries into the vague shape of a firearm, let’s remember that for a moment.
Maher asked the guests on his show, why would a homemade clock get him arrested?
The race-baiter Jorge Ramos chimed in with, “The reason for this controversy was precisely the color of his skin.” He even had the nerve to say that it would never have happened if Ahmed wasn’t a Muslim.
“It’s not the color of his skin,” Maher corrected. “Somebody look me in the eye and tell me right here if so many young Muslim men – and he is young, 14, not that it never happened before — hasn’t blown a lot of s**t up around the world.”
“For the past 30 years it’s been one culture that has been blowing s**t up over and over again,” Maher added.
Mark Cuban, who spoke with Ahmed on the telephone recently, told the panel how he heard Ahmed’s sister feeding him details over his shoulder when Cuban asked the boy what had happened. This seemed to suggest that the teen may have been put up to the stunt by his family.
In recent days, it has come to light that Ahmed’s father has in the past been involved in Islamic activism.
Do you think Ahmed deserves an apology for what happened or do you think the teacher and police were wise to err on the side of caution?
