Skip to comments.Clock Boy Returns: MSM Repeats 'Homemade' Myth
Posted on 08/08/2016 8:44:45 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
Remember Ahmed the Clock Boy? He was the high school student arrested and suspended last year when he brought a disassembled clock to school in Texas because it was suspected to be a bomb. Young Ahmed Mohamed was hailed in much of the mainstream media at the time as a genius because he supposed made a digital clock. Well, that turned out to be completely untrue. Far from being a budding Einstein, Ahmed merely removed a clock from its plastic casing and then placed it into a pencil case. After loudly drawing attention to his "invention," he was sent to the principal's office because of zero tolerance policy for possible weapons. After much media hype about Ahmed, he and his family moved to Qatar from which they have returned to pursue a lawsuit.
Unfortunately, now that the Clock Boy is back in the news, the MSM is again repeating the myth about his "homemade" clock. Should any of you still doubt as to how his clock was built, watch the video of Bill Maher below which reveals just how "homemade" it really was.

Video that recreates Clockmed’s “invention” in 20s.
We are being sold endless myths about Muslim trouble makers, to turn this into a Muslim country.
We are watching the uniparty destabilize America.
Ah! I found it!
Here’s a nice post with multiple links to completely destroy the “invented a clock” narrative, and show what little he really did:
In addition, there's this:
Headlines are reading currently:
""""Father of 'Clock Boy" now has 'filed federal civil rights lawsuit' against school district, city Of Irving"""".
...They're publicity hounds.... ...Family searches for Clock Boys name in the news as a daily ritual. ... The family is its own public relations firm.
....Mohamed "invited reporters" from Fox 4, a local TV channel , on Ahmeds 'first day' back in Texas after nine months in Qatar...
......His mom and four of his siblings remain in Qatar, only father and son returned.
....Their family 'friend' is Anthony Bond, the founder of the Irving NAACP....who they contacted 'first on arrival' back.....Bond said:....." Lets call the media." ($$$)
.....A news release was sent out by the family and its supporters:.... ..."Clock Boy is back, and ready to be interviewed." ($$$$)
.....Clock boys father is a Islamic Imam. ....the kid claims he's "lost his creativity".....
....Family was previously denied 15 million in compensation they demanded.... .... ....School and district will vigorously fight this case as well as they did the last.
The kid and family have already received:
Sympathetic crowdfunders raised $18,000 for his education at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he's been accepted.
A call and invitation to the Whitehouse by Obama personally.
A Google invitation to the Google Science Fair...and meeting with Mark Zuckerbee.
A personal Visit to NASA.
A personal visit to the president of his home country of Sudan. ( a wanted criminal)
amd various other meetings with news, politicians and others of notoriety.
The kid and family see themselves as "famous" and therefore have become "Photo and news seekers".....(classmates say he's an attention seeker)
Living it up back in the USA...
Jimmy Jihadi Jr. comes back to make the taxpayers of Irving, Texas pay.
Father and son are the only family members who returned ...they are living high in Qutar....
..."I'm Back"..."I'm famous"...call the press!.....
..."Remember this....I need the press!"....
More like an outright lie than a myth.
Great segment on “the clock.”
The Legend of Clock Boy is as real as anthropogenic “climate change”.
Back in the early 70's you could build a 'digital clock' from the (then) nascent Signetics 555 integrated circuit, an LED display, and a handful of standard electronic components ... or you could build one from a kit ... or you could buy a clock-radio at the local Korvettes ...
So how does this kid from Qatar suddenly become a 'genius' just because he built, (or disassembled from), an already existing and highly developed technology ??
Heck, if there were no digital clocks, then Free Republic wouldn't even exist in its current form !!

Clock douchebag says what? The 15 mins are over expired!
I watched Dr. Oz until the day he had him on the show. Now just usually catch the last minute while waiting for the next show. Usually watch Murder, She Wrote now at the time.
The fawning over him is sickening.
The fawning over him is sickening.>>>. the purpose it to desensitize us from seeing suspicious electronics on moslim men. so they can walk anywhere and blow up stuff. instead of getting shot.
The answer is obvious.
Isn’t Dr. Oz a Muzzie?
If a chewed pop-tart could be a gun, a box could be a bomb.
