A Case in Point...

The twerp (Ahmed Mohamed) that America's national media has been making so much of an unwarranted fuss over idiot who brought a clock to school, made to look like...well, very much like an IED, is as you might expect, a very troubled kid from a family that has a history of precisely such acts. His sister, Eyman Mohamed, has acknowledged that she was suspended from a school in a prior bomb scare. Her suspension occurred in 2009 while she was attending middle school in the same district. (

What's the big deal?

Well, not only is it a false alarm, it is exactly the kind of thing that terror groups do, setting up false acts to draw attention away from other actions planned either simultaneously, or at later dates.

Coupled with an inept and decidedly anti-police media, such groups also hope to get authorities here to let their guard down.

In a recent Op-Ed piece Kyle Smith wrote a surprisingly lucid piece on how white kids are disproportionately targeted for much stiffer treatment than Ahmed Mohamed received....and with no Presidential hugs, nor love notes from Mark Zuckerberg; "Josh Welch, a white Maryland kid with ADHD who was 7 years old when he was kicked out of school for chewing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a pistol and pretending to shoot other students with it, must be puzzled.

"Where’s his White House invitation? Where’s his chance to start networking at Facebook? His parents were forced to hire a lawyer and spent a year and a half just trying to get the suspension erased from the kid’s record. They were repeatedly refused.

“I stand with Ahmed, too. But I also stand with Alex Stone,” noted Reason writer Robby Soave. Alex Stone, a 16-year-old white kid from Summerville, SC, wrote a short story in which he imagined using a gun to kill a dinosaur. For this, his locker was searched and he was arrested, handcuffed, charged with “disorderly conduct” and suspended from school for three days...

"...In Dyer County, Tenn., Kendra Turner says she was suspended for saying “Bless you” after a student sneezed, and that her teacher told her that she would have no “godly speaking in class.”

"A school administrator said, “This was not a religious issue at all, but more of an issue the teacher felt was a distraction in her class.” Uh-huh. School leadership offered no explanation for the photos posted by students that showed “bless you” on a list of expressions banned in the classroom. Turner is still waiting for her call from President Obama, asking, "When is America going to get serious about the problem of white kids getting suspended from school for nothing?" (

So there it is, once again, the incompetents in our media and government ignore the real problems (terror-sympathizers like Ahmed and Eyman Mohamed), while unduly punishing untold numbers of white kids for, in effect, doing nothing of any great consequence.

Again, this is a VERY BIG problem that we won't be able to kick down the road much longer.
