Sarah Palin on Briefcase Bomb Lookalike Scare – “That’s a clock, and I’m the Queen of England.”

Sarah Palin became a GOP fan favorite with her winning smile, easy personality, quick wit and no-nonsense straight talk. Over the years the shine on her star has faded a bit and she’s moved more toward the edges of politics and into the mainstream of conservative pop culture, but she’s still giving it to us straight. In a recent post to her Facebook page the former VP candidate spoke clearly and decisively to the issue of the recent “briefcase bomb-looking clock” debacle.

Palin argued that President Obama’s handling of the situation only serves to make the ridiculous climate of fear and violence in our schools ever more dangerous. Oddly, liberals like Obama support harsh punishments against kids who make “pop-tart guns” or “finger guns,” but think that kids who make briefcase bomb lookalikes deserve praise. It’s simply more evidence of the foolish logic that lives within the liberal mind.

(Oh by the way – every bit of the hubbub surrounding this was entirely manufactured. Mohamed (or his Muslim activist father) was just trying to cause problems at the boy’s school.)

From Palin’s Facebook Page:

I Guess Muhammad’s Pencil Box is Cooler Than the Palin Kids’

“It doesn’t look like a pencil box to me.” I love Bristol’s perspective on this. You have to read this:

Talk about the dangers of a reactionary-slash-biased media! The first reports on this potential bomb-imitator were so fishy to begin with.

Friends, consider the kids disciplined and/or kicked out of school for bringing squirt guns to school or taking bites out of a pop tart until it resembled (to some politically correct yahoo) a gun. Or the student out deer hunting with his dad early one morning who forgot he had a box of ammo in his truck when he parked in the school’s lot later that day. Kids humiliated and intimidated for innocent actions like those real examples are often marked the rest of their lives and made to feel really rotten. Whereas Ahmed Muhammad, an evidently obstinate-answering student bringing in a homemade “clock” that obviously could be seen by conscientious teachers as a dangerous wired-up bomb-looking contraption (teachers who are told “if you see something, say something!”) gets invited to the White House.

By the way, President Obama’s practice of jumping in cases prematurely to interject himself as the cool savior, wanting so badly to attach himself to the issue-of-the-day, got old years ago. Remember him accusing police officers doing their job as “acting stupid”; claiming if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin; claiming he needed to know who was a fault in an industrial accident so he’d “know who’s a** to kick”; etc., etc. Those actions are about as presidential as his selfie stick.

Here’s background on Muhammad’s innocent “clock” he brought to school, and his suspicious refusal to answer authorities:…/09/18/real-story-istandwithahmed/

Yep, believing that’s a clock in a school pencil box is like believing Barack Obama is ruling over the most transparent administration in history. Right. That’s a clock, and I’m the Queen of England.

Compare Muhammad’s pencil box to the ones laying around the Palin household:
