Last week, I started seeing headlines about "Ahmed's Clock." At the onset, the story was being peddled as one of a one nerdy Muslim kid vs. cabal of racist-Islamaphobe teachers and police.
The kid was immediately hailed as the Muslim Hero America has been waiting for.
I don't know about you, but I'm still waiting.
Because: As it turned out, Ahmed's "clock" is most likely not all that it's cracked up to be.
Despite Ahmed's clock becoming a convenient--and false--tale of racism he still managed to get a White House invite, along with praises from the likes of Mark Zuckerberg and MIT.
The Diplomad sums this up as another Progressive fairy tale.
Which makes me wonder: How will the next Progressive fairy tale end?
