I’ve written about clock-boy before. But this is not about him. It’s about the love affair that the institution has with Islam, and the hatred it has for Christianity. When the subject of Christianity comes up you will notice all of a sudden that the constitution is very specific. It says right in there that you can’t, in any way, shape, fashion or form have anything whatsoever to do, under any circumstances, so help me God, with religion. It says that very thing right there in your constitution… somewhere. And I’m sure you can understand the position the poor institution finds itself in.
But the fact that that’s a big fat lie notwithstanding, there’s a big problem with the institution taking such a stand, that problem being that they only mean it when they want to mean it, and discard it when they want to discard it, and in the end your child loses.
So we have this from Breitbart:
Of course, the schoolhouse is ground zero when it comes to molding the future, so these sorts of events are constant in the schoolhouse. But I’m interested in the words of another Muslim student in this red-state school. Her name is Jamil, and she sent an email to the principle praising her school for not treating Islam the same way it treats Christianity. Well, that’s not exactly what she said, but read this and judge for yourself if it isn’t true:
Jamali describes the opposite picture, [from the one clock-boy is trying to paint] calling “Mac” the place that changed her life, where she felt “respected as a Muslim.” She dubbed Irving ISD a place “that taught pride, accommodated Muslim prayer and dietary needs” and where “students of my religious community, including me, (are granted) two weeks every year to attend a religious ceremony.” Jamali wrote they allowed her to take “a whole month of school off and go for Haj.”
It seems that the school doesn’t really mean what it says about what it says the constitution says, except when it does mean what it says about what the constitution doesn’t really say. If that sounds confusing to you it ought to, because it’s as confused of a saying as your child will be as a thinker when the state’s done with her. But it doesn’ t have to be that way. Always remember that when the yellow monster gobles your child up in the morning.
A few months ago the boy who has come to be known as “clock boy” brought what looked like a suitcase bomb to school. Oh, and he was a Muslim… not that you should ever draw a connection between “Muslim” and indiscriminately blowing things up, especially if it’s other poor slobs standing next to the device… and not you. And I’ll assume you know the rest of the story, even the part where Obama took the poor rattled child under his wing, and his law suit for millions because the schoolhouse hurt his feelings, and all that.
So what are the ramifications? Can you imagine a kid, who happens to be a Muslim–not that there’s any connection between Muslims and bombs mind you–who also happens to bring his science project to school, that just so happens to look exactly like a bomb. What is the schoolhouse to do? Risk getting sued? Risk being accused of Islamophobia? There are worst ways to die than by having your body instantly desegregated by a non-bomb that turned out to be a non-n0n bomb. But for sure, it will cause a dilemma for the one attempting to protect children in the future who happen to be in proximity of some sort of “device”, while at the same time navigating the tricky and booby-trapped jungle of political correctness.
Now contrast this to what would have happened to clock boy at airport security. But first, ask yourself, who hangs out in airports? All you need to know is that it’s not children. No, airports are filled with real people who are against late-in-life abortions, even if they are carried out by a protected class. Not so in the school house. Why these poor womb-escapees still have the smell of a Planned Parenthood office about them. They’re barely this side of the ragged edge of constitutional protection. So if anybody’s blood is going to be watering any tree of political correctness, it might as well be theirs.
In the airport a person can’t even say bomb, not even those who have risen to the top echelons of victimhood, much less attempt to slip something that looks like one through the “security” apparatus. Real people are serious about real protection. And real schoolhouses are serious about turning children into victims, even if they have to become victims to do it.
Your child deserves better. Moral clarity is not that difficult if objective truth has not been discarded. Love your child. Protect your child. And for goodness’ sake, get them out of the schools.
You might just as well face it, you live in an age that sees the state as God. It can make sure you never get sick and give you free health care made out of thin air if you do. It change the temperature of the planet, make sure that no one ever has to go without, whether they are willing to work or not, and keep anything bad from ever happening by looking into its special crystal ball.
But that crystal ball told a different story when the poor young Ahmed, who just so happened to be a Muslim, and who by mere coincidence was the brother of a young girl who was suspended from school for bringing a fake bomb to school, when it saw that Ahmed’s homemade clock was a bomb. But as it turned out, it was just a clock… and Ahmed just happens to belong to a religion that has a rotten habit of blowing up rooms filled with innocents. Shame on our state and its inability to be godlike. Next time someone brings something that looks like a bomb to school, it must make sure that it was brought by someone who belongs to the religion that’s “guilty of the crusades” before they “drag” them off to the police station.
As it turns out Obama wants to see that clock himself and has welcomed Ahmed to the Whitehouse with it. But I’d bet every dollar I own that before that clock is allowed anywhere near your president, secret service will make sure it’s not a bomb. Because letting your children get blown up for political correctness’ sake is fine, but for your fearless leader, it’s not fine at all.
