The Liberal Attacks against Dr. Ben Carson begin! What say you?
And so it begins.
The destruction, the invalidation, and ultimately the total take-down of Dr. Ben Carson has begun.
Apparently, on the Hannity show earlier this week, Dr. Carson was asked for his views on gay marriage. His response was this:
thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s 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.
So he, it's not something that is against gays, it's against anybody
who wants to come along and change the fundamental definitions of
pillars of society. It has significant ramifications."
So Dr. Carson doesn't want to mess around with the traditional definition of marriage. As we discussed just yesterday, we tend to agree with him on that point.
because Dr. Carson included NAMBLA and zoophiles in his reply, students
at Johns Hopkins University (where Dr. Carson has practiced surgery for
over three decades) have petitioned to have him replaced as
commencement speaker this year, claiming that Carson's "expressed
values are incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins and deeply
offensive to a large proportion of our student body.” They also claimed that "Dr. Carson compared gay relationships with pedophilia and bestiality" and that he (emphasis mine) "used the National Prayer Breakfast speech— which, like our commencement ceremony, is an historically nonpartisan event —
to deride Obamacare, advocate lower taxes for the wealthy, and suggest
that Christianity requires supporting Republican policies."
know who's spoken at JHU at commencement in previous years? Al Gore,
Michael Bloomberg, and Nancy Pelosi. Non-partisan my assular area.
Dr. Carson is prepared to withdraw as speaker out of respect for the students' wishes. He told MSNBC, "I would say this is their day and the last thing I would want to do is rain on their parade."
He also apologized for the way in which he worded his response to Hannity about gay marriage, saying, "I
think people have completely taken the wrong meaning out of what I was
saying. First of all, I certainly believe gay people should have all the
rights that anybody else has. What I was basically saying is that, as
far as marriage is concerned, that has traditionally been between a man
and a woman, and nobody should be able to change that. Now perhaps the
examples were not the best choice of words, and I certainly apologize if
I offended anyone."
But see, Dr. Carson has not fallen into
lock-step with liberals or the liberal agenda, and therefore his words
will be held against him for eternity, and liberals will use them to
tarnish an otherwise amazing record of personal achievement, common
sense, and resonance with regular Americans. And unfortunately, some
conservatives will buy into the notion that he's become "damaged
goods." This is how the mainstream media takes down people who aren't
progressives, you guys.
It was only a matter of time. But dayum, that was quick.
