If a Muslim kid reinvents a clock he is acclaimed as a genius. Someone should tell Obama that clocks already have been invented.
What kind of weird high school kid brings a bizarre package to school and expects to be rewarded for it? What parent would let a kid walk into an English class with it? The kid disobeyed his engineering teacher and carried it to English class. What would an engineering project be doing in an English class? The clock rang in his back pack during the second class and the teacher would have acted very irresponsibly if she did not investigate to protect the other children.
The picture of the device posted does make it look a suspicious package and nothing like a clock. In fact, you can't tell time with this kid's alleged clock. He wanted attention and he got it.
Note also how the family already has an attorney who represents Muslims from the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America. It looks like a deliberate provocation to me. Naturally, the Muslim Brotherhood CAIR organization is all over this story.
Meanwhile, if you are a patriotic kid who wants to wear an American flag to school you will be suspended. I bet Obama will not invite a patriotic kid to the White House for exercising free speech.
Another kid will not get an invite either.
