By now you've read the depressing story about Ahmed Mohamed:
Northwest Dallas CountyAhmed Mohamed swept up, 'hoax bomb' charges swept away as Irving teen's story floods social media
All one has to do to understand the over-reaction to this teenager's self-conducted science project--a homemade digital clock--is read what the far right wingers say daily on their blogs about people like Ahmed and his family. Go read those blogs and you'll find far right TGOPers saying what is quoted below. No, I will not link to any of them. (Please remember that the people who write this also become very pius every Sunday by blogging about a loving, all-accepting Jesus Christ):
"So a mistake was made, ok it's over, do we have to invite the kid to the White House and kiss his ass to apologize ? Or maybe we should hold a Beer or a Coke summit in the Rose Garden! Muslim problems pop up all the time. We can't always be right.
The president is too obvious where his allegiance lies. TRAITOR to the American People.
Our congresscritters should have stopped this asshole years ago. Weapons (small arms and manpads) are probably scattered all over the country and they won’t dare inspect a mosque for fear of offending these sand rats. I thought we would have a bad summer but we better be prepared for one helluva winter. If anything happens along the lines of 9/11, I hope that it starts where all these progressives live. Maybe then the elites will realize that they are on the jihadis’ list too."
"Slovakia’s prime minister, Robert Fico, says his country will accept only Christian refugees as it would be “false solidarity” to force Muslims to settle in a country without a single mosque." It sounds like Slovakia is way ahead of the curve! As for those ports-of-entry into Europe, the only food that should be served is pork: sausages, ham, bacon, pig's feet, etc. Anyone refusing to eat it or getting sick from eating it should be sent back to the Moslem Hell Hole from whence they came!"
"I also posted this on another popular blog site in light of PS tolerance for filthy Moslem vermin and here as a testament to plummeting SAT scores!"
"...yea, a disarmed society requires the vast majority to be willing participants in non-violence. That's not so in Europe anymore with the moslem invasion and economic strife. Honestly folks, with all the vermin you iknow are running around in the USA do you really want to disarm? Wow."
"Conservatives need to stop laying[sic] down. People who are not interested in this lifestyle need to stop laying[sic] down. And here's a tip for any lib progressives. No one has to like you. No one has to like LGBT people. No one has to like or even accept moslem vermin. Got a problem with that?"
"We certainly can't round 'em all up and put em in concentration camps, and even if we could, it would NOT solve the problem. The Nazis tried it with people THEY didn't like, and didn't THAT backfire BIG TIME over the long haul? The very people the Nazis tried to exterminate systematically once freed by the Allies soon recovered, then returned with a vengeance to became more powerful and influential than they ever had been at any time in their prior history."
"I agree about Obummer being Muslim as many intelligent and prominent figures have said (Of course, the intelligence requirement would exclude the Dems.). But the Muslims by sheer multiplication have become the proverbial octopus, encircling the prey..."
I invoke Godwin's law here because the people who write what is quoted above have much in common with the people who slandered the Jews.
Early in his membership in the Nazi Party, Hitler presented the Jews as behind all of Germany's moral and economic problems, as featuring in both Bolshevism and international capitalism. He blamed "money-grubbing Jews" for all of Weimar Germany's economic problems. He also drew upon the antisemitic elements of the stab-in-the-back legend to explain the defeat in World War I and to justify their views as self-defense. In one speech, when Hitler asked who was behind Germany's failed war efforts, the audience erupted with "The Jews."
After the failure of the Beer Hall Putsch in November 1923, he moderated his tone for the trial, centering his defense on his selfless devotion to the good of the Volk and the need for bold action to save them; though his references to the Jews were not eliminated (speaking, for instance, of "racial tuberculosis" in "German lungs"), they were decreased to win support. Some Nazis feared their movement lost its antisemitic edge, and Hitler privately assured them that he regarded his previous views as mild.
Mein Kampf raged against Jews as a dangerous bacillus.
In 1933, Hitler's speeches spoke of serving Germany and defending it from its foes: hostile countries, Communism, liberals, and culture decay.
Read any of the far right wing blogs and you'll find these exact same themes applied to Liberals/Progressive, the LGBT communities, African-Americans, Hispanics, and Muslims.
Is anyone surprised that Ahmed Mohamed was treated as a terrorist instead of as a young man who aspires to be a scientist?
