Radio host Mark Davis says as far as he’s concerned the #IStandWithAhmed movement is pretty disgusting.
Ahmed Mohamed has been on somewhat of a national media tour after the homemade clock he took to class was mistaken for a bomb. The 14-year-old was arrested and suspended from MacArther High School in Irving.
“I’ve got nothing against this kid except the degree to which he may have mouthed off while in custody,” Davis said.
Mohamed’s family has not signed the necessary waivers that would allow school officials to release more details about what happened before he was handcuffed and taken to a juvenile detention center.
“But I’m going to tell you something. This is the most important thing I’ll say today. This #IStandWithAhmed thing is a complete fraud and a complete propaganda hose job. This is in no way representative of Islamaphobia or hate on the part of these Irving officials,” Davis said.
He may not necessarily agree that everything was handled correctly, but Davis said he believes the story line that the Mohamed family is weaving is an absolute fraud.
“Good people are getting death threats because of it and it’s frankly kind of nauseating,” he said.
Davis said Islamophobia does exist, but this is not it. He instead called it an attempt to suppress the “see something, say something” idea.
