Bill Maher’s Anti-Semitism

While in America we commonly confuse the term Anti-Semitism as referring to a hatred of Jewish people, Semitic peoples include Arabs.

Today, the word “Semite” may be used to refer to any member of any of a number of peoples of ancient Middle East including the Akkadians, Assyrians, Arameans, Phoenicians, Hebrews (Jews), Arabs, and their descendants.

Bill Maher has been on a tear recently in a campaign against a Islamic High School kid, Ahmed Mohammed who was arrested at his school for bringing in an electronic clock he had built to show his science teacher. This crusade is a horrific abuse of Maher’s position as a media personality reaching millions – vs a High School kid, with little or no voice at all.

Racism…Pure and simple.

Big bad Bill Maher, vs 13 year old kid

 

Bill Maher lights into 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed again: “He didn’t invent anything!”

On Friday night’s episode of “Real Time,” host Bill Maher continued to criticize liberal “ninnies” who think 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed should be lionized for what the comedian characterized as “taking the back off something.”

Maher played a YouTube clip of someone opening up an alarm clock and placing it in a pencil case, and claimed that it looked both exactly like what Ahmed brought with him to school and exactly like a bomb. “This is like pouring milk on a bowl of Cheerios and claiming you invented cereal,” Maher said.

“And then made it look like a bomb!” guest S.E. Cupp added.

School officials “absolutely did the right thing, thinking it looked like a bomb,” Maher said.

“But it didn’t look like a bomb, it looked like a clock,” Ron Reagan replied.

“It looked exactly like a bomb!” Maher shouted.

“Haven’t you seen any of the ‘Die Hard’ movies?” Cupp asked, momentarily confusing Hollywood with reality.

Reagan the audacity to suggest that it looked like an alarm clock, saying that “here’s the thing about bombs, they have the timer — and then those wires that come out are attached to fissile material that explodes.”

“Excuse me, Ron, but I don’t notice all that when I see that hunk of metal,” Maher said. “Try taking that through airport security.”

“An alarm clock? I think I could,” Reagan replied. “It’s a clock!”

“It’s a clock only because we were told it’s a clock,” Maher said, seemingly unaware that’s it is a clock no matter what other people tell you it is — as demonstrated in the very video clip with which he opened this segment.

Maher later accused Ahmed of not being an inventor so much as someone who “takes the back of something” electronic equipment and shows it to people.

And I would have to ask…What exactly has Bill Maher ever invented? I mean – if I link into the US Patent Office Database, would I find Bill Maher’s name under any invention except repeated applications for Patent for “more bullshit”?

I personally produced and have been awarded several US and International Patents. When I was Ahmeds age, I certainly wasn’t inventing things, but I was building things from electronics parts that others had made, and implementing them in sometimes novel ways – for which I was awarded a National Science Award. I think almost all of the people who become inventors have a curiosity and a desire to tinker, which is why they tend to contribute to and participate in social groups called “Makers”. Science doesn’t appear in a vacuum. Almost everything scientist build is based on extending a body of knowledge from a base of that created by predecessors. The first step to extending that knowledge is understanding what has already been done.

So I call Bullshit on Bill.

Self Proclaimed Conservative Black Kid Goes Anti-Ahmed

This one is just sad. A 13 year old black kid goes on the Internet to berate President Obama for inviting the Muslim kid who was arrested in Texas for building an electronic clock…

I have known kids who wanted to grow up to be great scientists, or doctors, or lawyers…This indeed is the first one I’ve ever seen planning to grow up to be a Lawn Jockey.

Ga. teen blasts White House invite of Ahmed Mohamed

A Georgia teen took to YouTube this week to criticize the White House for its invitation to a Texas teen who has been in the spotlight for an invention that got him suspended.

Ahmed Mohamed, the Muslim teen from Texas who was suspended earlier this week because a teacher thought his homemade clock was a bomb, will not be returning to the school that suspended him.

The case sparked claims of racial profiling and outrage across the country, with some influential people — including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and President Obama, who invited him to the White House — showing Ahmed, 14, support.

That invite is drawing sharp criticism from a 13-year-old boy in Georgia. CJ Pearson has never been a fan of the president. In this case, he sees a double standard.

CJ is from the Augusta area, and his name was trending on Facebook overnight for his latest YouTube video.

“When cops are gunned down, you don’t invite them to the White House. You never did. But when a Muslim builds a clock, come on by. What is this world you’re living in?” he said in the video.

CJ goes on to say the invitation to Ahmed fits the president’s agenda.

By Friday morning, the video, posted Wednesday, had been viewed more than 330,000 times.

It’s the latest in a series of videos from CJ, who labeled himself a conservative at the age of 8.  His website claims a Facebook base of more than 29,000 followers and a viewership of more than 2 million on his YouTube channel. His Facebook page shows more than 52,000 people like the page.

According to the Washington Post, CJ is the national chairman of Teens for Ted, a national group backing Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz for president.

For his part, Ahmed said he will accept the president’s invitation, which was posted on Twitter.  The president called his homemade clock “cool” and asked the teen to bring it to the White House.

Police in Irving, Texas, do not plan to pursue criminal charges against Ahmed.
