Ahmed the Clock Boy’s Dad Loses Lawsuit

Most readers will remember Ahmed the Clock Boy, the young “Texan” culture-enricher who in 2015 brought the innards of an old electronic clock to school in a briefcase, causing him to be mistaken for a terrorist carrying a bomb. As we reported here last August, Ahmed’s dad (who happens to have a Mohammed Coefficient of 200%) filed a lawsuit against a number of media outlets and other organizations for their allegedly “defamatory” statements. Among the plaintiffs was the Center for Security Policy.

Today a judge in Texas dismissed the lawsuit. Below is a press release from CSP with additional information about this encouraging news.

Center Victorious in ‘Clock Boy’ Lawsuit Aimed At Suppressing Free Speech, Defeating Sharia-Supremacism

(Washington, DC): The Center for Security Policy commended today the judiciary of Texas for upholding that state’s commitment to freedom of speech by dismissing a frivolous lawsuit aimed at punishing the Center for Security Policy and its Executive Vice President, Jim Hanson for exercising that constitutional right.

The suit alleging defamation was brought last year by Mohammed Mohammed, the father of Ahmed, widely known as the “Clock Boy,” after the latter brought a clock device resembling a bomb to his school in 2016. It sought damages from the Center and its EVP in response to public statements made by Mr. Hanson, a former Green Beret, noting the resemblance of the younger Mohammed’s self-declared “invention” to a bomb. The plaintiffs also took exception to Mr. Hanson’s opinions regarding the potential motivations of the Mohammed family and Islamist groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) that actively promoted the Clock Boy’s claims that he was a victim of discrimination and Islamophobia.

Fortunately, a Texas statute prohibits Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPP), thereby protecting free speech and citizens’ right to speak their minds without having to defend themselves in court.

Upon learning that, as recommended by the Center’s counsel, the American Freedom Law Center, District Court Judge Maricela Moore had dismissed the suit, Jim Hanson observed:

This ruling reaffirms our most fundamental liberty — the right to free expression — and punishes Mr. Mohammed and his allies for attempting to suppress ideas they oppose. The Center for Security Policy will continue to stand firm against all attempts by individuals and groups like CAIR that seek through lawfare and other means to prohibit any criticism of totalitarian Islamist doctrine and to brand as Islamophobes those who point out their efforts. Shutting down free speech is anti-constitutional and un-American.

The Center for Security Policy recently released a book establishing the ties between the Council on American Islamic Relations and one of the world’s most notorious terrorist groups: CAIR is Hamas: How the Federal Government Proved the Council on American Islamic Relations is a Front for Terrorism.

  1. A counter lawsuit would be good, especially if it bankrupted His Excellency Mohammed Mohammed. However, some are too stupid to learn a lesson that only involves money. A caning or public lashing is in order but alas, we have not yet advanced as a society to the point that such an inexpensive, effective, and well-deserved lesson can be applied to the distal fundaments of those incapable of learning by any other method.

      • I would venture that the Indonesians have us beat when it comes to effectively dealing with miscreants. The issue with Indonesia has more to do with caning being used for issues of islamic morality than with the actual punishment.

        Imagine, for instance, the difference in effectiveness of punishment in the case of your typical dindu thug. Dindu shoplifts a video game and in our warped justice system he is tried (maybe) and if underage almost nothing comes of it. If he goes to jail (unlikely) it is at taxpayer expense, and he gets a graduate level course in becoming a better and more effective thug courtesy of the other inmates. With the Indonesian method, his punishment is swift, effective (painful) and very public; making him a laughingstock in front of his homies and baby-mamas. And the best thing is it cost the taxpayers almost nothing, and he forgoes the finishing school for young thugs.

        I see much to admire with public floggings for most criminal offences.

  2. That smug mocking loathsome look on clock boy’s dial. Reminds me of that other time waster – Ob[ama]. Easy to detect toxins by any passive observer. This speck of radicalized bottom of the pit Muslim […]dim will have to return to his Saudi monsters emptied glanded and ask for more cash to pay court costs and offer more flavors in return.
