Disbelieving the obvious, despite the mental effort required to do so.
From the media, but was not widely reported:
“Ahmed’s clock was hardly his most elaborate creation. He said he threw it together in about 20 minutes before bedtime on Sunday: a circuit board and power supply wired to a digital display, all strapped inside a case with a tiger hologram on the front.
He showed it to his engineering teacher first thing Monday morning and didn’t get quite the reaction he’d hoped for.
“He was like, ‘That’s really nice,’” Ahmed said. “‘I would advise you not to show any other teachers.’”
(The engineering teacher was probably bemused by such a pointless “invention.”)
“According to Irving police, Ahmed’s case contained a digital clock that the student had taken apart and rearranged. Police said the student had the briefcase in his English class, where he plugged it into an electrical outlet and it started to make noise.”
I’ve looked at the photo of the clock, and I agree. It’s simply the innards of a commercial product–nothing worth showing off to an engineering teacher.
“Officers said Ahmed was being “passive aggressive” in his answers to their questions, and didn’t have a “reasonable answer” as to what he was doing with the case.”
And now my own commentary.
So of course while he is doing this he is wearing a NASA t shirt , for maximum “I’m so misunderstood” points.
So all of this is:
1 ) A bomb hoax.
2) Race baiting and religion baiting.
3) A massive publicity stunt.
4) Actually making it more difficult to react to terrorism.
5) A kid who is a fraud pretending to be talented where as in actual fact he a vandal.
He didn’t make a clock he did the opposite, he took a working clock and and tore it to pieces to the point all it would do was beep.
This little scumbag even made a twitter account with his twitter account name IStandWithAchmed and then used the same name as his own hashtag, all for maximum media impact.
The media is so infested with brainwashed Social Justice Warriors and retarded Marxists, so they all took the bait.
This little punk then gets the following:
Here is picture of the little terrorist fraudster:
In case you are wondering what amazing invention he has with him, it looks a lot like the back of an old computer motherboard with a bunch of unrelated wired and an old speaker (in other words useless junk). All these props to create the impression of some sort of talent where there is clearly none. Just like having glasses doesn’t make you smart, having a bunch of wires doesn’t make you an electronics technician.
There you go, another Muslim ‘hero’.
A vandal, a fraud, a liar, a terrorist. I wonder he will grow up to rape and murder?
Straight out the the I can’t believe it files, One of Australia’s leading ISIS/Daesh internet shriekers turns out to be Joshua Goldberg a 20 year old Jew living with his parents in Florida USA.
What, what, I thought ISIS/Daesh was supposed to be Muslim fundamentalists!
There has been growing suspicion that ISIS/Daesh is actually a Israel run operation to ethnically cleanse the middle east to make space for a larger Israeli state. Pretty clever trick to make everyone else thinks that Muslim extremists did it while you move the border fences.
This might be comical except for the fact this ultra troll has been encouraging terrorist acts of violence, in Australia no less.
This terrorist has had dozens of account on multiple forums and routinely using his sock puppets to fight each other to draw other people into his completely synthetic dramas.
Then using these drams to drive further insane dramas, he created a never ending race to the bottom of twisted logic to easily bamboozle the foolish SJW crowd.
Because of the extensive use of Tumblr by this terrorist is creating and maintaining a persona in Australian head of the AFP Mick Keelty has demanded that Tumbler be shut down.
When question about the severity of the move and the inconvenience to the public Keelty responded:
We have to shut town Tumblr to stop the terrorism, I’m sure life will go on. Tumblr’s primary user base is fat/ugly women who use the site to blame men for their problems and complain about being dateless and miserable. -Mick Keelty
Keelty commented further stating that people really need to question the facts and views they read online, because otherwise they might find themselves embarrassed by supporting/quoting a troll or being caught up in a very clever ruse.
At the very least the body was moved for better PR.
Why? Because the Turkish government is looking for an excuse to offload its refugee camps to Europe.
Other things to note: the pristine condition of the body which allegedly had been in the ocean for 3 days.
A body in the ocean will normally show bloating, discoloration and markings of predation from fish and birds. This body looks only hours dead at most.
The baby’s father had been in Turkey for years, and only wished to go to Europe to get free dentistry and only once the migration had become a difficult to vet flood.
So before you throw all of your logic in the trash after seeing a single disturbing image, keep things in context and perspective. Is one dead baby on a Turkish beach reason alone to change all of Europe’s immigration policy.
No, and less so Australia’s immigration policy.
And don’t think for a minute that a government wouldn’t go to great lengths to make fake footage of events to drive agendas.
Here is the Norwegian government being caught out funding a hoax film of the Syrian civil war. When caught out in the lie, they always revert to attempting to start a conversation about the issue.
So in our race to the bottom of corruption legal and political system, we have a Royal commission head being accused of corruption, by the very people he is attempting to prosecute.
You really have to laugh at the system attempting to give itself legitimacy when its becoming blatantly obvious that every part is so thoroughly corrupt that there is no real hope for a reasonable settlement.
The unions have screwed their workers, the government is using the commission to attack political opponents but has been caught out stacking the commission with party lackeys.
Epic levels of hypocrisy form all sides.
It’s quite difficult to describe the way people can completely distort a topic by framing a debate. Just because I can explain it, it doesn’t mean you can understand it. Basically people can leave out certain parts of a discussion, because it doesn’t support the point they are tying to make, or their general overarching beliefs. Often it is deliberate, but sometimes an incorrect belief occurs because certain facts or observation are simply not known and the lack of information has framed the observation. Example, if a space alien landed on earth on an Australian beach in the summer, that alien might think people always wear beach wear, because its always hot. That alien might think everyone speaks English, wears rubber sandals, drinks beer. Of course the aliens observations are framed by only seeing part of the picture. Of course we could also deliberately frame the observation and show the alien our science institutions to make the alien think we are smart.
Even really smart people can draw the wrong conclusions from a framed observation or debate. Its easier to explain with some pictures.
This is the same picture with just a little more added to the frame, suddenly your mind starts doing all kind of back flips trying to explain to itself what is wrong here and what piece should be ignored or is perhaps some sort of trickery. The problem is you have been caught by the cognitive dissonance of your optical perception. Your visual processing wants to chop certain parts of the picture out because they fly in the face of a fundamental assumption, gravity. As you are struggling with this other piece start to seem out of place that you discounted before at being too trivial to worry about. Finally you realize you were tricked from the beginning, because you made an incorrect assumption from the beginning. Your world was literally upside down.
This is how powerful framing is in debates and information in general. You can be made to believe things fundamentally opposite to the truth and be quite certain of them, if you consider only some of the available information. So what trickery did I use to make those pictures? Just the cropping tool and a vertical flip of the picture. I could have done it with a few printed photos, a razor blade and ruler, a computer was not required and neither was anything complex.
Remember what just happened in your head and how it happened,
you are probably being fooled like this about a lot of things.
With recent scandals such as #Gamergate, censorship, moderation bias and the infestation of SJW moderators, The diehard politically incorrect /pol/ users (AKA Polacks) have largely left 4chan and have set up their HQ in the rather new 8chan, also called infinitychan.
8chan was designed to look much like /pol/ did on 4chan and its is just as politically incorrect as ever. Its not a place for the weak of heart, stomach, or nerves.
Have you blood pressure medication in standby, along with you butt hurt cream if you dare visit 8chan/pol/ . You’ll read some interesting discussions which you will be able to take part in anonymously* (what passes for anonymously these days at least), you also read some complete crap and some really offensive things. You’ll read things there some people won’t wont you to read, and one of those people may be you.
It’s called freedom of speech,
and it also includes the freedom to be offended,
and offend others.
If the following video offends you, 8chan/pol/ may not be the right place for you.
A television series from Norway broadcast in 2010 attempting to address a series of issues that had been heavily influenced by cultural Marxism in many Scandinavian countries.
The series uses the provocative title meaning ‘Hjernevask’ brainwash, implying the entire society has been brainwashed and simply cannot see the fact.
When the man from the anti racism body states “there are no races”,
it really makes you want to ask “if there are no races, how can there be racism?”
What makes the series most interesting is that it does not really push any one conclusion but rather shows a series of viewpoints from high profile Norwegian and international commentators.
So make up your own mind.
Make sure you turn on subtitles!
The entire series as a YouTube playlist:
Or simply start at part one of the seven part series:
