As Alice in Wonderland might say, this story keeps getting “curiouser and curiouser.” Frankly, there’s so much craziness in the news these days, don’t you sometimes wonder if you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole?
In any event, as you know, Clock Boy Ahmed was initially arrested for bring a suitcase
bomb clock to school. Then he was immediately released. Then he was invited to the White House and became an overnight sensation with his own hashtag. Then Qatar gave him a full scholarship to college. So he moved to Qatar. Then he sued the school district for all the trauma he endured (I’d sue for trauma too if I was forced to meet Obama). And THEN he decided he was homesick and wanted to move back to Texas, except mean, peaceful protesters scared him.
Well, of course now there’s THIS development.
Just two days after 14 people were murdered and 12 people were injured by Muslim terrorists, as Breitbart reports, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced during a speech to American Muslims on Thursday night that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will be investigating the arrest of “Clock Boy.”
Although the boy was never charged with a crime, several congressman had asked for a DOJ investigation.
Breitbart Texas reported that California Democrat Congressman Mike Honda, who cried Islamophobia outside the U.S. Capitol Building Tuesday while questioning the legality of the Sept. 14 arrest of “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed, is himself under an ethics investigation.
During her speech in a Virginia suburb of Washington, Lynch promised a national legal advocacy group for Muslim rights that there would be an investigation. The dinner was being held by the group, Muslim Advocates, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
Lynch was reported to not have mentioned the shootings in San Bernardino, California.
No, of course that’s completely irrelevant to this story. And anyway, why would you want to acknowledge the deep sorrow your fellow Americans would be feeling over the largest Islamic terror attack on our shores since 9/11? Of course not. Not in this topsy-turvy world.
The U.S. Attorney General instead said there had been a “very disturbing rise in anti-Muslim rhetoric” in the last three weeks. It was three weeks ago when Islamic State terrorists killed over 150 people in Paris and wounded hundreds more, as reported by Breitbart News.
The Times reported that Lynch told the Muslim advocacy group, “When we are ruled by fear, we are not making ourselves safe.” She was said to have criticized proposals in Congress to block Syrian refugees from settling in the United States.
“My message to the Muslim community is we stand with you in this,” Lynch was reported to have said to Farhana Khera, the executive director of Muslim Advocates.
Stand with you in what “this?” Which part? Folks, we have a legion of Mad Hatters running this administration.
