In 2015, Ahmed Mohamed, a 14 year old student at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, brought what he claimed was a homemade clock to school. When he showed it to one of his teachers, the older man thought immediately it was a bomb.
Police were called and Ahmed was escorted to the police station.
The world exploded in outrage. The kid was showing how clever he was but Islamophobic authorities believed the worst because he was a Muslim. Despite the fact that the machine didn’t look much like a clock and appeared very much to be a bomb, the weepy left got involved and young Ahmed became a celebrity.
NASA invited him for a tour. President Obama weighed in, congratulating the young man for being so clever. Editorials in all the correct newspapers praised him and condemned the “Islamophobia” that led to him being taken into custody.
Ahmed’s family sued the school district and the city of Irving in 2016, claiming his civil rights were violated. Yesterday, a judge dismissed the lawsuit “with prejudice,” which basically means “Get out of my court and don’t come back.”
