“I’m speaking from experience when I tell you that there is nothing on this green earth that a liberal progressive fears more than a black American who wants a better life and a smaller government,” Former Congressman Allen West at CPAC 2013Over the last week Dr. Ben Carson learned exactly what Congressman West was talking about. After Carson said marriage is “a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality — it doesn't matter what they are, they don't get to change the definition.” Liberals went crazy saying that the Doctor was relating being gay to being a pedophile (NAMBLA is the North American Man/Boy Love Association) and/or bestiality.
The doctor apologized on CNN days later, saying his comments were “somewhat insensitive” but also misconstrued. “I certainly apologize if I offended anyone, because I was not in any way comparing gays with people who engage in bestiality or sexual child abuse,” he said. His point, he said, was just that “there is no group that really gets to have a special dispensation” to change the definition of marriage.
Despite the fact Carson explained that wasn't what he meant, the liberals had a field day, so yesterday on the Mark Levin show the doctor struck back:
Dr. Ben Carson on Tuesday blasted his critics for heat he’s taken recently over controversial remarks on gay marriage, calling his white liberal detractors “the most racist out there.”
“They want to shut us up completely, and that’s why the attacks against me have been so vicious,” Carson said on the Mark Levin radio show. “I represent an existential threat to them. They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me, they can’t find anything else to delegitimize me, so they take my words, misinterpret them, and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot.”
Levin said Carson was being targeted for his race.The good doctor first entered the public eye when he criticized President Obama (to his face) at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this year.
“You’re attacked also in many respects because of your race,” Levin said. “You’re not supposed to talk like this, and a lot of white liberals just don’t like it, do they?”
“They’re the most racist people there are because they put you in a little category, a box,” Carson responded. “How could you dare come off the plantation?”
Dr Carson is quickly learning the lesson taught by Lt. Col. West, and learned by Senators Rubio, Cruz and Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin--it is against liberal law to be a minority and a conservative. To do so will bring the worst kind of personal attacks.
