Time is up it seems for ‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Mohamed and his lawsuit against prominent conservative voices.
As you may recall, Mohamed – or Clock Boy as he has become better known – tested the waters in his school by trying to instigate a response by “building” a “clock” inside a briefcase.
We put the word ‘building’ in quotes because he didn’t really build the clock at all, he just purchased one at the store and removed the casing. And we put the word ‘clock’ in quotes because the device was most definitely designed, quoting Bill Maher, to look “exactly like a f***ing bomb.”
Mohamed and his father over-stepped their bounds a bit, when they sued conservatives that dared criticize his ridiculous stunt, or who defended the schools proper reaction to it. A judge agreed, tossing out their lawsuit.
A victory for common sense!
Via the Daily Caller:
A Texas judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed last year by the father of “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed against several conservatives.
Dallas County district court judge Maricela Moore dismissed the suit on Monday, announced the Center for Security Policy (CSP), one of the defendants in the case.
Mohamed Mohamed, “Clock Boy’s” father, filed the suit in September against CSP, its executive vice president, The Blaze, Inc., its founder Glenn Beck, Fox News, and several conservative pundits, including Ben Ferguson and Ben Shapiro, all of whom criticized his son.
Jim Hanson, a CSP executive, explained his belief that Mohamed had intentionally designed the device to cause a reaction from school administrators.
“It’s a RadioShack clock that he put in a briefcase, and in a briefcase it looks like a bomb,” Hanson argued in an appearance with Glenn Beck. “They did that to create the exact scenario that played out.”
While it’s readily apparent what Mohamed’s intentions were to even mildly intelligent adults, President Obama fell for the story hook, line, and sinker.
He praised Mohamed and invited the teen to the White House, asking him to bring his “cool clock.”
The President however, wasn’t truly interested in Mohamed’s science project, as much as he was interested in sympathizing with him because he too views most Americans as “Islamophobic.”
Thank goodness this Texas judge wasn’t nearly as gullible or politically motivated.
