Ben Carson Must Not Get Keys To Oval Office
I’ve made it clear that I would not trust Carson with the keys to the Oval Office and I am now beginning to see that I shouldn’t trust him with the keys to a Cabinet post office either. (See: Dr. Ben Carson For President: Not So Fast; 2/6/14)
Carson is a without question one of the most gifted doctors in the history of medicine but beyond that, he is either naïve, clueless, or he secretly supports an agenda or aspects thereof that have contributed to the racial divide in America. And as you will see, his disagreeable heterodoxy doesn’t end with a racial divide.
Carson in a prepared comment pursuant to the passing of Julian Bond, the former chairman of the NAACP said: “I am deeply saddened to learn about [the passing of] America civil rights leader, Julian Bond. May we continue to honor him for his contributions to society.” (8/16/15)
My question to Carson is: Just what contributions to American society did Julian Bond make? Does Carson suggest that hatred, racist diatribes, racist accusations, fomenting racial acrimony, messages of Leninist ideology that rivaled Du Bois, ad nauseum were in some way beneficial to America? I demand Carson enumerate just what Julian Bond did to improve America?
In my official capacity as Chairman of the Racial Policy Institute, a newly formed think tank which advocates for a colorblind society, I said: “The Racial Policy Center (RPC) would like very much to be able to mourn the passing of Julian Bond, the long time board chairman of the NAACP. But unfortunately truth and factuality detract from Bond’s legacy rather than add to it. While the RPC recognizes Bond’s passing, it does so for his transpicuous record of fomenting racial acrimony and division. Julian Bond lived in a day and time when he could have moved America forward, instead, as an autocrat of animus and immiseration he led the NAACP and racial harmony into decline.” (8/17/15)
This is not the first time Ben Carson has made statements referencing a bête noire, i.e., a strongly detested person, who is a recognized racist calumniator. Carson said: “[Al] Sharpton and I have the same goal – to build a brighter, stronger America that provides equal opportunities and access to the underserved and forgotten.”
The very fact that Sharpton isn’t serving a lengthy prison sentence for the laundry list of racial melees he has instigated over the years, suggests to me that Carson is either blindly or purposefully ignoring how good all people have it in America.
That Carson would make such a statement tells me he is another Colin Powell but this time disguised as renowned doctor. You will remember that immediately after Obama was elected Powell ceased his charade of being a conservative.
And as if the aforementioned isn’t troubling enough, writing for Townhall.com, Steve Deace wrote: “There was Carson posting on Facebook that Easter wasn’t about Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for the sins of the world, and ensuing resurrection proving He was the only Son of God. Rather, Carson posted Easter was about ‘acceptance’ and said Christians and Muslims are children of the same God. That, of course, would be news to Christians and Muslims alike. Since one side says the basis for their faith is Christ’s resurrection from the dead, and the other side claims he was never crucified in the first place.” (Ben Carson Claims He and Al Shaprton Have the Same Goal; 4/18/15)
Deace also reminded us that “Carson tweeted out approval for the sham Iran deal orchestrated by Senator Bob Corker, which in reality [was] the GOP establishment surrendering its Constitutional oversight once more.”
That Carson supported a deal that threatened America is telling. Political pundits including Mark Levin, Dr. James David Manning, Rush Limbaugh, Chuck Wilder, and myself to mention but a few were outraged at the Congressional treachery of Republicans but Carson praised their actions.
It is my conclusion that Carson’s actions and/or comments are those of a man who knows exactly where he stands. The fact that he has attempted to double-speak his original positions on the Second Amendment and amnesty for illegals are however the actions of a man determined to deceive the voters.
When will so-called conservative voters stop blindly throwing their support in favor of anyone who sounds good or delivers a good sound bite? I warned conservatives in February of 2014 that Carson was not what we wanted as president. I am now warning you he is not what we want in Washington, DC.
