“Bristol Palin, former reality television star and daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), criticized President Barack Obama for inviting a Muslim teenager to the White House after he was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school. Ahmed Mohamed, a 9th grader at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, was arrested on Wednesday and asked if he tried “to make a bomb” after showing a homemade clock to a teacher. Later in the day, Obama tweeted at Ahmed and invited him to the White House.
“In a post on her Patheos blog Thursday, Palin argued Obama should “STAY out” of the situation with Ahmed. “This encourages more racial strife that is already going on with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ crowd and encourages victimhood,” Palin wrote. She also said: “Besides, considering how our President is ‘handling’ the whole Iran nuclear deal situation, I’m not sure he should be dealing with Muslims altogether, even if the kid is just that – a kid.”
Palin then went on to say that one of President Obama’s main problems is “the fact that he seems to have a short-term memory” and that “American politicians altogether appear to forget things too lightly.”
“If memory serves me right, several of the 9/11 terrorists were named ‘Ahmed,’ and a number of them also had the name ‘Mohamed.’ Now, I’m usually not that big on symbolism, but considering everything that’s going on with ISIS and the migrant crisis in Europe, I’m prone to thinking that if they’re Muslim and their name happens to be ‘Ahmed’ or ‘Mohamed,’ that can’t be good for this country, even if they’re kids,” Palin stated in a subsequent interview.
She added: “I don’t know what the deal is with our President that makes him react by inviting potential terrorists in the White House. Maybe he has short-term memory or something. Oh wait, I actually do know – he shouldn’t be president. So far all he’s managed to do is piss off half of the world and bow down to the other half. That’s not the American way and it will be the end of us if we don’t change pretty soon.”
“And our politicians, especially Democrats, aren’t too smart, either. All they want to do is talk to people they shouldn’t be talking to when what they should be doing is gearing up the troops, kicking asses and taking names. As for the genius Muslim kid, I feel sorry for him. I wish his parents named him differently. This way, his name is going to put him on terrorist blacklists all around the world. It’s too bad, he seems like a smart kid,” the former Alaskan governor’s daughter concluded.
