Ben Carson: Gay Is Not the New Black


Retired neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is tired of talking about gay rights. The controversial conservative had liberals in a frenzy after telling CNN’s Chris Cuomo that homosexuality was a choice in a March interview. People “go into prison straight and when they come out, they’re gay,” he said before later issuing an apology. While he isn’t going so far as to retract that apology, he admits that he was “irritated” by Cuomo’s attempt to draw a line from the civil rights movement to the fight over gay marriage.

“Quite frankly, I didn’t remember any times when there were signs up that said ‘everybody else here and gay people have to drink at this fountain,” Carson said Wednesday in an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier. He said that his reaction was inspired by that irritation, though he maintains that he “shouldn’t have allowed that to enter into the discussion.”

When Carson returned to CNN on Thursday, anchor Brianna Keilar was eager to challenge him on his stance. “Do you think that gay Americans are discriminated against?”

“What position can a person take who has no animosity toward gay people, but believes in the traditional definition of marriage that would be acceptable?” asked an exasperated Carson.

Keilar declined to answer that question, instead choosing to waste the next two minutes going around and around on the issue. Finally, Carson insisted that his belief was that “everybody has equal rights, nobody has extra rights.”

“Then so do you not want to talk about discrimination against gay Americans?” asked Keilar.

“I just gave you an answer,” Carson replied.

A Minority Voice

When speaking with Fox’s Baier, Carson said the backlash over his earlier comments were entirely predictable. “They saw that as the opportunity to finally knock this guy out,” he said. “They were jubilant.”

And of course he’s right. The liberal media is scared to death of conservatives who don’t fit their narrative. A man like Ben Carson invalidates half of what they believe by merely existing. It makes it a lot harder to talk about “privilege” and racism when a black man has a growing wellspring of conservative support. They view people like Carson, Sarah Palin, Carly Fiorina, and Marco Rubio as traitors to the cause. It’s impossible for them to miss how it looks for a lily-white anchor to tell a black man how he should feel about racism. As if Chris Cuomo is going to tell Ben Carson something he doesn’t know about civil rights.

Oh, but he’s not gay, so what does he know? Well, we aren’t going to find a president who ticks all the boxes. Every man, woman, and child on the planet has a blind spot. At the end of the day, the best you can do is to listen to diverse voices, consult your heart, and make the best decision you can. And contrary to what liberals believe, a vote against gay marriage is not a vote against gay people. A vote against affirmative action is not a vote against blacks. A vote against federal oversight that would eliminate the much-ballyhooed gender pay gap is not a vote against women.

In all cases, these are votes for freedom. Votes for small government. Votes for personal responsibility. And you don’t have to be a white male to believe in these things, just as you don’t have to be a minority to wave the flag of oppression 24-7. Conservatives want leaders who aren’t going to undermine American liberty in a neverending search for a utopia that can’t and won’t ever exist.

We want some common sense, and that’s something that liberals – almost by definition – can never understand.

  1. MAHB001 says

    Carson is too smart to think that he can get a fair shake from the Liberal Press. I am befuddled as to why he tries. If I were him, I wouldn’t talk to them anymore, but I would talk about them on Fox, from here on out.

    Even when you destroy a liberal, their sickness twists their own total humiliation into some type of win for them… As this Keilar interview proves.

    1. RobertNorwood says

      He could possibly pick off some support. He can handle these idiots. He’s a soft spoken guy but believe me he’s no wuss. He came from nothing and worked and fought for everything he achieved.

      1. Earn nest says

        What’s the point? No intelligent liberal will switch sides as they have already aligned with an advantageous doctrine and the rest that make up the vast majority simply do as they’re trained to do anyway. Even showing the presstitutes up for what they are is an exercise in futility. Let the liberal press die for lack of interest.

        1. RobertNorwood says

          Intelligent liberal – you know any? There are folks who are liberal but that is to say they are not “Liberals”, they simply have some liberal views, some conservative views and often make up a good number of the independents.

          1. Earn nest says

            It depends on how you define intelligent. Self serving criminals like Hillary Clinton can be quite cunning. Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev, Nikolai Lenin.

          2. OSAMA OBAMA says

            What’s the difference between Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Piglosi et al, and a pigmy tribe? One is a cunning pack of runts.

        2. Jim Tapscott says

          We are not trying to reach the hardcore liberals but those in the undecided that need to hear the truth!

          1. MAHB001 says

            The percentage of hard core liberals is only about 10%, BUT the hard core liberals control the 90% of brainwashed with an iron fist.

        3. Stacie Stevens Markham says

          Did you say “intelligent liberal”? Lol. I think uber intelligence is just a perception that they hold of themselves, secondary to psychosis and narcissism.

        4. Stacie Stevens Markham says

          I agree, it would probably be a greater justice to do away with the senseless liberal voices who have turned into terrorists. Miley Cyrus, for instance, has the ear of our very young people and is helping to mold them into a biased and ignorant, self absorbed generation. Promoting the hatred of anything Christian and anti-police with her rhetoric.

      2. Michael Dennewitz says

        Maybe with a bit of luck a good sniper will take out the CIC (communist in charge) and there won’t be any more DEAD people voting 6 & 8 times!? Mr Carson has my vote!!!

        1. Carol Notermann says

          I know the idea what you seem to be suggesting Michael Dennewitz … but In my United States of America we remove candidates by voting…!!!!!

          1. grama18 says

            You do realize THAT obamy did not legally win. Many of the districts that he carried showed over 100% voted. Sorry that I find very hard to believe A lot of dead people voted . Because they don’t protect the voting rights of legal citizens.

          2. MeanGene155 says

            No we don’t. We waste our precious time going to vote in an election that was predetermined way beforehand. Electronic voting machines are computers. Computers don’t make mistakes, they just run programs. Whoever was programmed to win always wins. Obummer was declared the winner before many Californians voted. The non-demoncraps will never be president again. Get used to it. Go on living best you can while supporting a hundred million slackers until the end.

          3. MAHB001 says

            observe at all the poll locations. Do not leave it up to the “officials”.

          4. Bud says

            Observe HOW? You are not allowed to see how the other voters fill in their ballots. Nor are you allowed to see the shenanigans in the back room with the “uncalibrated” voting machines.

          5. MAHB001 says

            There is a way to observe the vote collectors at the polls. There is a group of people in CA that teach those that want to observe the polls. They have found and actually stopped ballet stuffing.

          6. Bud says

            “Vote collectors”? Where I vote we feed our paper ballot into the machine and it allegedly tabulates the vote according to the items the voter has marked on his ballot. The machine shows the voter nothing as to how his ballot was registered in the machine. I don’t know who these vote collectors would be.

            It’s amazing that those who “have found and actually stopped ballot stuffing” are not in prison for “violating the civil rights” of ballot-box-stuffers.

          7. MAHB001 says

            There was a primary race in LA, the Republican stood an excellent chance to get a large enough percentage of votes to win the seat outright. That is without a run off. The media reported that the Democrat needed X,XXX votes in order to force a run off. After the polls closed, two or three precincts “found” a bunch of votes… Which happened to be X,XXXX +1 votes for the Democrat, which forced a run off.

            The Democrats said “It is a MIRACLE!”
            The Republicans said “hmmmmm”

            During the run off election, observers were sent to the polling locations that “found” the lost votes. Guess what, the Republican won, by exactly the same margin he was winning in the primary before the miracle votes were discovered.

            Nobody was caught. I think they saw the observers, chickened out, and left their shoe box full of extra ballots in the bushes outside.

            There are tons of theories about why the Dems want illegals to vote. I think the Dems know even if the illegals had the right to vote, they would not vote. BUT, the Dems, will find a way to vote for them. The illegals will not have to get off their couch, nor will they even know they are voting for Hillary.

          8. Bud says

            Even “observers” at the polls during voting hours cannot prevent chicanery behind the scenes once the polls have closed. That is how “Landslide Lyndon” won the Democrat primary for his senate seat in ’48.

          9. MAHB001 says

            I am not sure what the answer is, but I do know we have to try something. The process has become corrupt and EVERYBODY is being disenfranchised.

          10. Bud says

            Strange, but I haven’t notice being disenfranchised.

          11. MAHB001 says

            That is by design.

            “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The
            people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

            Joseph Stalin

          12. Bud says

            I cast my ballot. I have no direct evidence that my particular vote has somehow been manipulated or changed.

            Yes, I am aware of the quote in your post, and it is disturbing that SEIU members maintain the voting machines in the major metro areas. There have been too many reports of those machines tabulating the vote for someone other than the voters’ choice. And the excuse is always the same–the machine needs to be “calibrated.”

          13. MAHB001 says

            If We the People do not take back control of these processes, we will soon be living under tyranny, and the Constitution will be forgotten.

          14. Bud says

            And how would we do that?

          15. MAHB001 says

            Hold our representatives accountable.
            Actually impeach liars, and terminate all golden parachute benefits.
            Force Term Limits on all public offices.
            If a Representative initiates a bill that ends up deemed unconstitutional, that should be the end of that career.

            You got any ideas?

          16. Bud says

            We the people do not have impeachment power, nor can we force the politicians to pass any law which would limit their own careers and power. There are enough moochers in the population who vote for a living to forestall any efforts at real reform.

          17. anAmericanByChoice says

            Sadly, you are mostly right…

          18. anAmericanByChoice says

            Here’s another one: accountability should also mean that anyone who perpetrates fraud on the American people pays back what they stole or are responsible for in public funds’ losses to the full extent of all they own, to their last penny. I bet you many would think twice about running for office and breaking their constitutional oath of office!

          19. anAmericanByChoice says

            Only way to avoid this is to have the votes
            on paper and count them by hand with an equal number of vote counters
            for each candidate sitting side by side, and, of course, each voter
            getting ONE vote: voting cards with photo being necessary to avoid
            bringing the dead back to life and people voting more than once.

          20. anAmericanByChoice says

            The machines are all calibrated. They are calibrated to make sure whoever the PTB wants to come out on top wins regardless of how the many votes were cast for this or that candidate!

          21. Mark Clemens says

            I wish we’d go back to paper ballots. It’s a real physical record……

          22. anAmericanByChoice says

            AGREE: Only way to avoid this is to have the votes
            on paper and count them by hand with an equal number of vote counters
            for each candidate sitting side by side, and, of course, each voter
            getting ONE vote: voting cards with photo being necessary to avoid
            bringing the dead back to life and people voting more than once.

          23. Mark Clemens says

            Also, after much thought. I think the local elections offices should be held accountable for voting inaccuracies. I mean they only really work every two years, coordinating the local voting. Why can’t they buy a newspaper and check the obituaries against their registered voter list once a week? If the voters name is in the obituaries, remove it from the voting roll. How hard is that????
            Also I think the local voter registration people should be fined $200 for every dead person on the roll, a week before any election. Furthermore I think the local elections people should be jailed for no more than 6 months and fined $1,000 if they get more voters than are on the roll. What I mean is if 7,000 people are registered to vote in a district, and 7,100 votes are casted, someone apparently didn’t do their job, and should be punished.

          24. festmatt5440 says

            That was the way it used to be done ; before this ” Communist ” took the ‘ chair ‘.

          25. Stacie Stevens Markham says

            And we can apparently do it more than once, these days. And if you vote just the right way, it will be overlooked.

          26. Carol Notermann says

            I too confess that the frustration of the last election had me overcome with anger.. This administrations attempts at destroying the Constitution of the United States of America has me screaming at the TV every time he whips out another edict! I am a Christian and I will not condone what you suggest. I will work my butt off to get my candidate elected President. AND Earn nest…. I’ve never seen and for sure never met an “Intelligent liberal” where did you find one?

          27. MAHB001 says

            I hear you Carol, I feel executions are extreme. BUT, the system is corrupt, until the electorate, of BOTH parties figures out that both parties are now being disenfranchised, the Republic of the United States is under attack.

          28. Carol Notermann says

            The Bible states quite clearly… Thou Shalt Not Kill. Those executed after a fair trial and judged guilty, and sentenced to death are a different story. You cannot fix a corrupt system, by corrupting it further.

          29. Michael Dennewitz says

            No, and America cannot just stand by and watch everything we fought for being flushed down the toilet either madam. A GOOD sniper needs to eradicate the communist imposter so that we can begin putting this country back together!!!

          30. Stacie Stevens Markham says

            I don’t believe that anyone truly wants to see any president assassinated. I think that most people are just truly frustrated with his far left liberal agenda. Most would be happy if he would just, at this point, PRETEND that he is POTUS of ALL American people. Not just the exreme left. Instead he shows contempt for the conservative base in this country by belittling it every chance he gets. And I also believe that some believe our country to be in such danger that it might possibly be for the best. It probably would. Still, I’d hate to see it happen. Joe would take over and it would just be more of the same. But at least it might be comical.

          31. GreatNana9MM says

            I don’t think that anyone wants to see Barry Sotero assassinated, but I must say that we are extremely surprised that there hasn’t been one or more attempts.

          32. Joe T says

            He has no redeeming qualities………….termination is a viable option.

          33. Bud says

            Heck no, I certainly do not want to see Obama assassinated. That would put brainless Joe in the Oval Office, and it would also create a sympathy vote for him should he suddenly decide to run in 2016. And he would.

          34. GreatNana9MM says

            It actually says, “Thou shalt not Murder,” there is quite a difference between the two.

          35. Carol Notermann says

            My Bible… Lists this commandment as Thou Shalt Not Kill !!!!

          36. Bud says

            It’s a mistranslation. There’s more than one of those in the Bible, Carol. The Bible did not fall from Heaven as the King James Version, bound in leather and stamped in gold.

          37. Carol Notermann says

            Thank you BUD for your enlightenment…. I am quite aware that humans, with our Lords assistance, wrote the Bible! I’ve taught religion many years and think I get the jest of what it says. If all of you who are such Biblical Scholars would stop with the wording.. And recognize that this man was stating, quite bluntly that he wouldn’t ‘mind’ seeing our president assassinated. AND sir… the Ten Commandments were written by the hand of God and given to Moses on two stone tablets…….

          38. Bud says

            Even the Ten Commandments on the stone tablets were not written in The King’s English as they have been translated and appeared in the King James Version of the Bible.

            Furthermore, the humans who wrote the Bible wrote it in the understanding that people of that age had with regard to many subjects, such as sexuality.

            P.S. It is never a good idea to state that it would even be an idea, let alone a “good idea,” for the president or anyone else to be assassinated. One would hope that we are somewhat better than a banana republic, even though our present administration operates as though we are.

          39. GreatNana9MM says

            Yes, but that is not in the original language. If you read it in the original language and find out how it was said then you will find that it says Thou Shalt not Murder.

          40. Bud says

            Actually, the Bible originally said…. Thou Shalt Not Murder.

          41. MAHB001 says

            The media sets the public expectations these days.
            For instance, when listening to the media, Hillary has already won. Nobody will question, nobody needs to vote, because the votes will not be counted.
            Fight the media corruption by joining

          42. Carol Notermann says

            I know they certainly comment as if she has the democratic nomination.. however, if you ask the Republicans… Bush, Bush, Regan, etc…. Democrats don’t always win.

          43. MAHB001 says

            The media was not as corrupt during the Bush (#1) and Regan times. I think that the media has abandoned all pretense of being unbiased and no longer reports the news. They are more like Goebbels and now simply distribute propaganda for the left.
            I could see the change in the media during the Bush (younger) Bashing years. The media got away with injecting more and more bias, the more they got away with them more emboldened they became.
            Now, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, etc, (except Fox) have formed a cabal, together they control public opinion with their propaganda, they also to a great degree control the Nations narrative.

            Together they fixed the re-election of 0bama by suppressing the bad news about Benghazi. The total black out and deceptive reporting done about Benghazi has left the public unaware of 0bama and Hillary’s lies.

            I don’t know exactly how the “elite” controllers at the top choose who is going to win the election, but my theory is that the elite of both parties sit down and play rock, paper, scissors, to pick their chosen one. In large part, the media sets everybody’s expectations (it is gonna be close), and the controllers make their choice, the actual votes are thrown away without even being actually counted, and the media presents a winner.

            The corruption is at the top of both parties. It is all about control of the people now.

          44. Orley says

            I guess slick Willy must have learned form her or Hillary learned from him but maybe it took both of them to come up with such slick maneuvers’ sex s candles or letting Americans get killed and get out scott free, you would have to be pretty clever.

          45. MAHB001 says

            At least we used to until the corruption in charge figured out how to fix elections.
            We the people must take back the process, the moral majority can no longer stay silent.

            “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
            Joseph Stalin

            Here in CA, the people no longer count the votes, and I don’t think the Democrats in charge do either.

          46. Bud says

            Stalin’s remark about who counts the votes is completely accurate. Doesn’t anyone else recall the days when the hand-picked communist candidates in the USSR got at least 99% of the votes?

          47. Michael Dennewitz says

            In the olden days they didn’t bother with taking polls, the just shot the jerk!! I could care less about how”times have changed,” so to speak. Sometimes vigilante justice was the only justice! Perhaps we need desperately to go backwards!!??

          48. Bud says

            In Obama’s case he finds a friendly judge to remove his opponents from the ballot.

        2. 570ben says

          Let’s put a 55 gallon barrel on every street corner in the USA and take up a collection for exactly this purpose.

          1. Mark Clemens says

            Why? Don’t you own a gun? Are you to poor to buy bullets? Or are you trying to raise money for a hit man?
            I think you lack the guts, to be your own man, and do it yourself………

          2. Michael Dennewitz says

            Clemens, did your mother have any kids that actually lived? Why is it a group of people can be discussing something and then along comes a turd and tries to drag the subject in another direction? Are you another liberal troll??

          3. Orley says

            Buy bullets? sense this obama guy has been in there you can’t even buy 22 shells.

        3. Bud says

          The cemetery will turn out in droves to vote regardless of who the Democrats nominate.

          1. Michael Dennewitz says

            Remember that this old coot said this, huh? THERE WILL BE NO ELECTION !! Months before, the little halfbreed will have caused a few race riots here and there, and he WILL declare martial law and abolish term limits to declare himself a dick taster, I mean, dictator…

          2. Bud says

            Barry Soetoro has long been the former, and he aspires to long be the latter.

      3. Stacie Stevens Markham says

        That is a concept that liberals don’t understand, someone not getting a free pass. Especially not from someone like Ben Carson who is the definititon of overcoming diversity and clawing their way to the very top.

      4. MAHB001 says

        Agreed, the liberals doing the interviews, will never recognize shame and how foolish they look, but some of their viewers may be recognize it.

        1. Stacie Stevens Markham says

          Of course they do. That is what makes me question the discrepancy in Fox News ratings and how they tower over everyone else, and the last two elections going to Obama. This country isn’t nearly as stupid as the WH would have us believe.

          1. MAHB001 says

            The CORRUPT and untrustworthy media sets the expectations, and nobody questions the results.
            A very dangerous situation.
            We are fighting the corruption at
            We boycott the advertisers, NOT just watching the “News” programs. Boycotters don’t even have to watch the shows, they can go to the web site to get the lists.
            Please consider joining.
            With large numbers, we will make a difference.

          2. Bud says

            Unfortunately, the ratings of Fox News Channel only apply to the cable world. Fox News’ audience is tiny compared to the “news” telecasts of the alphabet soup networks.

    2. The duck says

      There is a good reason for being interviewed by the liberal media, done in an open forum such as Ben Carson has done. He exposes them to their own ridicule of him and shows those who are fence sitters what a liberal is. That in turn draws off a few votes for dummycrats and the convert will work to draw off more of them. That strategy is exactly what has caused our country to be where it is now, in a socialistic Islamic catering state. We as a nation have been taught all our lives we must be tolerant and then the libers picked up on that to include every evil that lurks at our door. Carson hopefully will bring about a way to stop tolerating every evil and get rid of our liberal teachers and professors and bring back reasonable tolerance of our freedom loving America citizen instead of every whim of social behavior on the plant earth. We can only hope.

      1. Stacie Stevens Markham says

        he could just say I’ll do a full interview with anyone who asks when Clinton is subjected to the same line of ridiculous questioning. Perhaps they’d start doing their jobs if they were never granted interviews until we demand that they do their jobs with liberals.

      2. MAHB001 says

        The entire democrat base are followers, the media is so corrupt and controlling that even the most obvious bias does not raise angst. The media suppresses their own hypocrisy.

        1. Michael Dennewitz says

          They’re doing exactly as ole George Soros has taught them to do. I mean, HE does own them…

    3. staberdearth says

      Obama did this by justifying that those who did not vote in the November 2014 elections were really a vote FOR him. Extend this to the way his brain thinks on other issues. You can also think about how this is but another double standard, plays well with the left, an absolute disaster on the right courtesy of media lap dogs.

      1. MAHB001 says

        The media sets their viewers expectations. Their viewers accept the pre-drawn assumptive conclusions of their chosen media. That is how the media controls public opinion.
        To fight the corrupt media join the boycott.

    4. Stacie Stevens Markham says

      Yes, Hillary gives speeches with directions to the press that “the speech is your interview! no questions!”, and the liberal media gives her a complete pass. Not that they would ask her the tough questions anyway. I think that what happened in Benghazi is a much more important truth than how Ben Carson feels about gay marriage, which he has already attempted to explain to the thick headed media. They keep thinking that they are going to get a conservative to say that they hate gays, i suppose. They simply cannot understand any other explanation for why someone would believe in the biblical definition of marriage.

      1. MAHB001 says

        The media is corrupt and no longer trustworthy.
        Traditional boycotts of the media will not work. but madashellboycott will work.
        We are boycotting the advertisers that support the news.
        Lets cut off the funds and make the liberals pay for their own propaganda.

  2. Croco Dile says

    In the mind of the statist “government” is something more than a collection of human beings. Paradoxically, the statist will insist that everything that “government” is allowed to do, and everything it is, comes from “the people.” All belief in “government” requires this ABSURD, cult-like belief that, by way of pseudo-religious political documents and rituals (constitutions, elections, appointments, legislation, and so on) a bunch of mere mortals can conjure into existence an entity that possesses superhuman rights – rights not possessed by any of the people who created it. And once the people hallucinate the existence of such a thing, they will eagerly beg that thing to forcibly control and extort their neighbors. People recognize that mere mortals have no right to do such things, but truly believe that the deity called “government” has every right to do such things.

    Though “democracy” is often praised as the height of civilization, cooperation, and “getting along,” it is the exact opposite. Voting is an act of aggression, and loving “democracy” amounts to loving widespread violence and constant conflict. Political elections are not about togetherness, unity or tolerance; they are about arguing over how everyone should be forced to behave and what everyone should be forced to financially support, via the control machine called “government.”
    Every single person who votes (Democrat, Republican, or third party) is attempting to put people into power who will carry out large-scale extortion (”taxation”) to fund various “government” programs.

      The history of mankind shows that even the best of his governments ultimately fall to ruin.
      If we put our trust in man, we know the outcome.
      (Ecclesiastes 8:11)
      Who really ‘rules’ the world? (1John 5:19)
      History of man also shows the innate concept of deity is a part of our DNA.
      What civilization was truly atheist?
      We are endowed with free will so we can choose where to find answers that will be our religion.
      Though we are certainly on opposite sides of the discussion, I agree with CD’s assessment of man’s government but I look to the study of the Bible for my answers.

      1. mallen11 says

        Yes, it is the Bible that has the best and last say so from our Lord.

          5. Carol Notermann says

            Faye Hayes… I refer to your statement regarding My Lord’s Holy Word as “A tattered old musty piece of fictional crap” and telling me to “SHOVE IT”…You haven’t got much retention capability do you?

          6. mallen11 says

            Faye, the Lord Jesus Christ knows who you are and died on the cross for your sins. If I were you, I would find a copy of God’s written Word and apply it to your daily life. What a difference it would make. It has in my life.
            1 Corinthians 2:14….But the natural man (unbeliever = you) receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
            You can only understand what the Bible teaches if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ; otherwise, you can only read it academically except for the verse pertaining to salvation. Then God opens your mind to the truth.

          7. Jim Tapscott says

            Here is what we face! Take God out of the picture and there won’t be enough police to cover us! Do you have a better solution, that works? We have been trying the liberal/progressive/socialist/communist/atheist programs and they don’t seem to be the answer! What is your solution?

          8. Joe T says

            This is a speech that was broadcast on April 3,

            1965 by legendary ABC Radio news commentator

            Paul Harvey. It could be taken as a prediction of

            the very state that the United Stated of America

            is in today.

            It portraits the devil telling how he would take

            over the United States. Listen and hear how much it
            resembles the times we are

            living in today.

            If I were the Devil . . .

            I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would

            of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I
            would have a third of

            its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I
            would not be happy

            until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should
            set about however

            necessary to take over the United States. I would begin with
            a campaign of


            With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to

            you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you

            To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a

            myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of
            the other way

            around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what
            is good is “square”.

            In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work
            is debasing, that

            cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not
            to be extreme in

            religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I
            would teach to pray.

            I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art
            in Washington” . . .

            If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how

            to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else
            would appear dull an

            uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and
            vice versa. And then,

            if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate
            unions and urge more

            loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for
            me. I’d peddle narcotics

            to whom I could.

            I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of

            distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I
            were the devil, I

            would encourage schools to refine yound intellects but
            neglect to discipline

            emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an
            athiest to front for me

            before the highest courts in the land and I would get
            preachers to say “she’s


            With flattery and promises of power, I could get

            the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in
            favor of pornography,

            and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then
            from the school

            house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His
            own churches I

            would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify
            science because

            that way men would become smart enough to create super
            weapons but not wise

            enough to control them.

            If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an

            egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If I were the
            devil, I would take

            from those who have and I would give to those who wanted,
            until I had killed

            the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state
            would force everybody

            back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting
            children in uniform,

            women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other
            words, if I were

            Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.

            Paul Harvey, Good Day.

            Mr. Harvey gave a pretty good forecast of

            America’s future.

            Sounds like the liberal agenda.

      2. Croco Dile says

        The belief in “authority” dramatically impacts both the perceptions and the actions of various categories of people, leading literally billions of otherwise good, peaceful people to condone or commit acts of violent, immoral aggression.

        Now look at the history of religious wars throughout of human history. The religion you subscribe to is one of the worst !

        1. RobertNorwood says

          Hardly. The Soviet Union, China, Cambodia subscribed to no religion and they murdered people on a scale too large for people to get their heads around. Now, 6 million is an easy number, people can think of that, imagine it but, when the number approaches a billion it gets more difficult.

          1. Croco Dile says

            Then your claim is that Communism is not a RELIGION ???

          2. Jim Tapscott says

            Yes, it is an atheist religion, as is socialism, fascism, racism. I don’t compare Christianity to them as there is no comparison. Have there been people, groups who SAID they were Christians but did UN-Christians acts? Yes! The Bible told us this would happen and wait, its gonna get a lot worse, just like the Bible told us! However, I KNOW who wins this war and it ain’t the other side!

        2. Kathy says

          You missed Islam. Man is the problem, not God.

            Amen Kathy!

          2. Faye Hayes says

            You’ve got it backwards. God is the problem, not man.

          3. Kathy says

            That’s your opinion. I can’t change your mind & you will not change mine. I believe in God & I believe His promises to us.

        3. Jim Tapscott says

          I read your diatribe and don’t see any workable alternative FROM YOU! Just how hopeless it all is. From my perspective….as long as i have breath I will contue to engage in the fray BECAUES I have faith in GOD, not man AND I KNOW who wins this war! AMEN!

          1. Faye Hayes says

            I read your diatribe & have come to the conclusion that you could not spell correctly if your life depended on it. From my perspective, YOU are a lost cause.

          2. Jim Tapscott says

            Because, i misspelled BECAUSE? I admit I can make a mistake! Are you perfect?

        4. marcuswelby says

          Dear Mr Dile,
          Your knowledge of man’s distortion of the Bible fits exactly into your argument.
          Man using the word of God to justify their promotion of a particular type of man’s government.
          As early as the 1st century, the evidence of this distortion is recorded in the Bible
          (2 Timothy2:16-17).
          Men using religion to kill and make war are not agents of the Creator but followers of the ruler of this world (1 John5:19).
          The name of Christianity was hijacked by man seeking to rule this world.
          (1 Timothy 6:3-10), (2 Timothy 4:3-4), see Constantine.
          and the very words of Jesus in (Matthew 7: 15-20).
          So many so called Christians are led by these wolves in sheep’s clothing and you are recognizing their ‘fruits’.
          God’s Kingdom extends far beyond man and Satan’s rule of this earth.
          (Matthew 24:14)
          So I do agree that evil is done in the name of the Bible but it is not the work of true Christians or the actual contents of the Bible.
          Once again I do agree with your assessment but from a 180 degree perspective.

          1. Croco Dile says

            The “proselytized” emperor Constantin decreed : “It seems to us proper that the Christians and all others should have liberty to follow that mode of religion which to each of them appears best; for it befits the well-ordered State and the tranquillity of our times that each individual be allowed, according to his own choice, to worship the Divinity.”
            But no sooner had the priests of the new religion foisted themselves securely into power, and by their threats of hell fire dominated the superstitious minds of the emperors, than the old decrees of persecution under which they themselves had previously suffered were revamped and turned into engines of torture and destruction of both pagans and “heretic” Christians alike, and religious intolerance became the corner-stone of the Church apostolic. Without mentioning earlier laws, in which the new persecutors cautiously felt their way, it was enacted, at priestly instigation, in the famous Codex Theodosianus, about A.D. 384: “We desire that all the people under the rule of our clemency should live by that religion which divine Peter the apostle is said to hive given the Romans. … We desire that heretics and schismatists be subjected to various fines. … We decree also that we shall cease from making sacrifices to the gods. And if any one has committed such a crime, let him be stricken with the avenging sword” (Cod. Theod. xvi, 1, 2; 5, 1; 10, 4). What a contrast to the Edict of Milan, granting tolerance to all! In these laws of the now “Christian” empire priestly intolerance is made the law of the land; and the accursed words “Inquisition of the Faith” and “inquisitors” first appear in this code.

    4. Jim Tapscott says

      I have no idea what your post means! Negative input without solutions. That is my take! Am I wrong? Elucidate!

      1. Croco Dile says

        Educate yourself, Jim.

    These left wing goons don’t know what do with Ben Carson. They’re used to attacking white, Christian, heterosexual, Republican conservatives. When one is black, it throws them all off kilter.

      They will continue to attack with innuendos and outright lies. Lieing has always been their way of doing things. They know the useful idiots will believe anything they say.

      you should be killed for being queer,and this is a real issue destroying americas childrens minds dik sucker

      1. Earn nest says

        God’s law states that if a man lies with another man as with woman he should be put to death. But the penalty for ALL sin is ultimately death anyway. Homosexuality is a symptom of a reprobate mind to which the Lord may give you up if you continue to sin.

        1. Jim Tapscott says

          You are right! Sin, what ever it is, GOD is very capable to handle it! I pray for people who sin, cause I know that I am not perfect either!

      2. Alleged Comment says

        It should read EARLY Death Penalty for Fags since their lifestyle promotes early death and suffering much sooner than heterosexuals.

        1. Jim Tapscott says

          I will pray for you AC, and there is nothing you can do about that!

      3. Jim Tapscott says

        YOU ARE WRONG FOR ADVOCATING THIS! I don’t support same sex marriage, but advocating killing them? NO! That is what liberals, KKK & Nazi’s do! Not us!

    I, too, am sick of “gay rights” Gay people don’t have the right to push their sex life in my face at every turn .Many of us who actually agree that Gay people should have the same human rights as any other person( as long as they do not try to change the laws to fit their own sexual preferences) are now getting so sick of their ” in your face ” attitudes, that we are backing away from sympathy for them. Stand firm, Ben Carson. You speak for the majority of us in this country.

    1. SJW says

      Great post and I totally agree with what you have stated.

    2. Skyhawk says

      Changing the term homosexual to gay was the first step in forcing your acceptance. The word does no longer have it’s actual meaning.

      1. Michael Dennewitz says

        “Gay” was a word that was used to describe “happy” back in the middle and late 1800s. The QUEERS stole the word to cushion the blow with the public that they are in fact QUEERS or FAGGOTS, as some may call them. In reality, they ARE STILL QUEERS ( meaning odd), and while they may feel gay about being a fag, BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THEY ARE STILL QUEERS!! An egg is an egg, and a rose is a rose!! (AND OVOMIT AND HIS HUSBAND ARE QUEERS!)….

          Can you find the faggot?

          1. Michael Dennewitz says

            Excuse me for asking, but exactly what has that got to do with the subject at hand??

          2. Mark Clemens says

            You were making reference to homosexual “Nick Names”. You did refer to the term faggot. Not many people know what a faggot really is.
            I’m guessing you didn’t find the faggot on the LP/CD Jacket…….

    3. Faye Hayes says

      I’m sure a lot of homosexuals feel the same way about your disdain, bigotry & hypocrisy against them. I, too am sick of you Christians forcing your religious bullshit down their throats, all because of some ancient book written thousands of years ago. Gay people are not going anywhere, so get over it!!!

      1. Mark Clemens says

        You should remember Moses was raised w/the Egyptian Aristocracy. He saw first hand how incest and homosexuality made people sick and deformed. Moses wanted the Israelites to be a strong race…….

        1. Faye Hayes says

          I am an Atheist. I don’t believe in your false book of fairy tales, so your little statement about a fictional character like moses has no meaning for me , whatsoever!!!

          1. Mark Clemens says

            I made no reference to any Gods, or Miracles. Just a theory on what Moses saw. How deformed and sickly people who practiced homosexuality and incest were in Egypt. Back 4,000 years ago. A leaders main job was to keep his people healthy, and strong, also homosexuals can’t reproduce.
            Think about pork. The Holy Bible and Koran oppose eating it. Said the animals were cursed. Why you think they took that stance?
            My theory is nobody understood microbiological organisms (salmonella). People got sick eating improperly stored pork (No Refrigerators back then)So people avoided it, due to health reasons.

  6. papa doug says

    Why does Carson pander to the liberal press? Because he has to. If he doesn’t go into the lions den they will say he’s afraid of lions. This is good for him though because it helps teach him just what’s in liberals minds at that point in time and he can be better prepared. He can’t allow himself to get flustered.

  8. graybuffalo says

    The lunatic Democrats are scared to death of Dr. Carson. He is articulate which enables him to bury most of the moron media. He is Black (not half-black like Obama), so they can’t play the “race card” if he disagrees with Obama. Whites are designated as racists by the lunatic left if they simply disagree with Obama’s policies. Not being able to play the race card petrifies the left because they will have to deal with the issues rather than their contrived racism. Additionally, he has nothing to hide as far as his college records or a nebulous background – Obama cavorted with felons (Tony Rezko), and bombers of Federal Buildings (Ayers). The left is pulling their hair out trying to find some “dirt” on this guy. Too bad, all you lunatics, Carson is going to skewer your Benghazi killer.

    1. mallen11 says

      Yes, Carson can tell them like it is without twisting anything he says like the libs always do; even in their questionings.

    The more I hear and read about Dr. Carson, the more impressed I am with him personally and politically.
    He is not afraid to point out liberals and their policies for the poppycock they are. He is a breath of fresh
    air in a political cesspool that can only get deeper and more dysfunctional. For the future attacks that are surely coming his and his family’s way, I can only offer my encouragement in prayers. Hang tough doctor!

  13. Jim Tapscott says

    He should continue to tell his message, with fortrightness & honor. Will he be given a fair shake? NO! However, at some point, some liberal/progressive is going to hear him & others and a seed will be planted. We can’t just preach to the choir in this spiritual war. Our message needs to be in the mainstream. HOW? Use the social media like this to tell the truth, again & again & again! This is a marthon, not a foot race folks!

    1. Skyhawk says

      Yes, and living in a fantasy world where you pretend that you are something that you aren’t should have been outgrown long before kindergarten. Unless insanity prevails.

    Everyone makes hundred’s of “choices” everyday.

    Some are simple and easy…., while some are very difficult.

    Boy…., I sure want that ice cream.
    I want to smoke a cigarette.
    I want to hit him or not.
    I want to stay home and call in sick.
    Should I make my bed, do my homework, or go to the beach with my friends?
    And on and on we go……….

    Race is not a choice.

    A “lifestyle” is a CHOICE. In some cases, it may be a simple choice, in others, it may be extremely difficult.

    A particular “lifestyle” should not be discriminated against, nor should it be granted special benefits.

    we are all so very tired of the gay issue..

    The liberals give this subject way too much attention and focus. Do they not have other problems that they believe warrant discourse? No, they don’t.. They want to discredit every conservative they can by attempting to “trip them up” on this relentless pounding of the dead horse. Carson answered the question, let’s move on.

  17. trugrits says

    The blacks wouldn’t get behind a full black republican before and chose a half white to be in the Wh. I doubt Carson will get the nomination because the news media will try to turn everyone of the sheople they can against him. You would think blacks would get behind and support a black man that made it to the top but no the blacks want one of their homey race baiters in power. Everyone knows a black man can’t make it to the top unless he sells out to whitey. That’s the ignorance that keeps the blacks on welfare.
    Look at Cosby getting his hind end kicked. He is another black trying to tell the black community quit being your own worst enemy. Cosby just was a threat to the black race baiting morons brain washing the blacks.
    The powers that be can’t have a successful black man telling blacks they have been fed a bunch of lies and that whitey isn’t their ball and chain to poverty.

    1. Jim Tapscott says

      Believe me, there are a number of blacks who attend Dr. Carson’s rallies. I am there and I am of color as well! I am an American, not an African-American! Hyphenating us is what the left does to keep us fighting each other! Don’t buy into that trap. Black people make bad decisions, just like all of us do. After all, we elected our current President and we are considering Mrs. Clinton now! How stupid have we been?

  18. disqus_CeZmTpgh9W says

    If Ben Carson decides to run, I sure as heck would vote for him rather than Shillery

    I love Dr. Carson. He is exactly what this Country needs at this particular point in time! He is a humble and brilliant man who has the right prescription for our Country. He will honor our Constitution, and he believes in smaller government, equal rights for all, and everything that true conservatives hold dear. Career politicians have nearly destroyed our Country and only Dr. Carson can save us from the path to ruin that we are now experiencing, primarily because he isn’t a career politician and he doesn’t owe the establishment, lobbyists or big business ANYTHING. I believe he will try his best to heal our Country and return it to some semblance of order and sanity!!!!! If he is elected, he will surely need help from God Almighty because the mess he will be inheriting will be monumental!!

    Input Info Liberalism/Socialism/Communism (Democrats are the main cause of chaos in USA)

    In 2008, President Obama made this statement of principle, otherwise known as a gaffe: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” John McCain used the opportunity to call him a socialist. So did Rick Perry in his 2012 campaign. Mitt Romney has so far preferred using code. But as the campaign gets tougher, he too might start using the S-word. Especially now that France has chosen to exhibit a real live specimen of the species in the Élysée.

    So what is socialism? What makes a socialist different from a liberal?

    Philosophers of liberalism and socialism actually have very different visions for the world. They don’t disagree at all on the idea that spreading the wealth around is good for everybody. In fact, this idea finds one of its greatest expressions in the work of the philosopher of welfare liberalism, John Rawls. He proposed two principles of justice, one of which—the “Difference Principle”—claims that inequalities are permissible if and only if they benefit the worst-off person. Since many inequalities arising from the free market violate this principle, some wealth must be redistributed.

    The difference between liberals and socialists, rather, is founded on their different answers to this question: Can the principles by which I vote differ from the principles by which I live?

    Liberals say yes, they can. Rawls, for example, said that you must be guided by principles of distributive justice, such as the Difference Principle, only when you think about the basic structure of society. Roughly, those times are when you self-consciously think of yourself as a citizen: when you vote, when you debate political ideals, when you think about those ideals in your time alone. Otherwise, you don’t need to heed principles of distributive justice.

    So a liberal allows you to accept a salary that is four, ten, 100 times greater than that of the least well-off person in your society, so long as, when you step into the voting booth, you don a new hat and act so that all inequalities are arranged to benefit the least well-off.

    That picture deeply disturbs socialists. Jerry Cohen, the preeminent contemporary philosopher of socialism, wrote:
    “Liberally minded economists take for granted that economic agents are self-seeking, or, like James Meade, they think that they should be, and then they want people as political agents to act against the grain of their self-interest: pile up your earthly goods on the mundane plane of civil society but be a saint in the heaven of politics.”

    Cohen didn’t think that that was a good idea. He, like other socialists, thought that a well-ordered society is not just a mass of persons who each has the right amount of goods. All people should unite in bonds of fraternity, mutual respect, and regard for each other’s dignity. And those things cannot grow in the moral-political schizophrenia allowed by liberalism. So “the personal must be made political”: principles of justice must be made principles of life.

    Today’s Dem party is not the party of JFK.
    Did you ever see such a disgusting display of boot liking as when Obama sent Clinton to Moscow with that misspelled RESET button and Clinton giggled like a schoolgirl?
    Name one borderline Marxist country that this administration hasn’t firmly reached out to.
    Meanwhile its been fellow citizens the Dems have called “racists who cling to guns and religion, subversive elements, preppers, Christians….” and such. Anyone who has grown up during the Cold War years instinctively understands that jargon and the implied threats behind them. Remember the DNC Convention where the attendees were asked 3 times if the name of God should be in the platform and three times he was cursed down and yelled at. They shook fists and spit and cursed in a display of hate i never seen from an American political party.

    1. Liberalism is a political ideology that thinks that an individual is free from all interference and restrictions. Communism does not give any emphasis to individual freedom. It is a political ideology that stands for equality of all.
    2. In communism, power is equally shared by everyone. But in Liberalism there is no power sharing but every one considers being free from the other.
    3. Communism gives priority to the welfare of a society, liberalism gives priority to the rights of an individual.
    4. There may be some form of government in Liberalism but in Communism there is no government as it implies a class less and state less society.
    5. Liberalism focuses on a balance between individual and community responsibilities. Communism focuses entirely on community responsibility.

    Letting the liberals keep thinking their delusional thoughts, hastens the demise of the liberal agenda and brings more of their base – the ones who are finally seeing the truth behind their rhetoric to the ranks of Conservatives voters. People are waking up to the fact that liberal “solutions” do more harm than good to our nation, our people and our economy so their solutions are based on lies, fabrications and their Gruber mentality that the American electorate is stupid, makes poor choices and only they can lead us to the promised land. A promised land where the US becomes a 3rd rate 3rd world 2 bit country of misery, no hope, no change and divided.

    February 17, 2008, reprint – Psychiatrist Confirms: Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder

    As a clinical and forensic psychiatrist, Lyle Rossiter has treated over 1,500 patients and examined over 2,700 civil and criminal cases. Turning his hand to political psychopathology, the author of The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness, has diagnosed an alarming percentage of the population as suffering from the grotesque form of mental derangement known by some as moonbattery

    The Liberal Mind is the first in-depth examination of the major political madness of our time: The
    radical left’s efforts to regulate the people from cradle to grave. To rescue us from our troubled lives, the liberal agenda recommends denial of personal responsibility, encourages self-pity and other-pity, fosters government dependency, promotes sexual indulgence, rationalizes violence, excuses
    financial obligation, justifies theft, ignores rudeness, prescribes complaining and blaming, denigrates marriage and the family, legalizes all abortion, defies religious and social tradition, declares inequality unjust, and rebels against the duties of citizenship. Through multiple entitlements to unearned goods,
    services and social status, the liberal politician promises to ensure everyone’s material welfare, provide for everyone’s healthcare, protect everyone’s self-esteem, correct everyone’s social and political disadvantage, educate every citizen, and eliminate all class distinctions.

    Radical liberalism thus assaults the foundations of civilized freedom. Given its irrational goals, coercive methods and historical failures, and given its perverse effects on character development, there can be no question of the radical agenda’s madness. Only an irrational agenda would advocate a systematic destruction of the foundations on which ordered liberty depends. Only an irrational man would want the state to run his life for him rather than create secure conditions in which he can run his own life. Only an irrational agenda would deliberately undermine the citizen’s growth to competence by having the state adopt him.

    Only irrational thinking would trade individual liberty for government coercion, sacrificing the pride of self-reliance for welfare dependency. Only a madman would look at a community of free people cooperating by choice and see a society of victims exploited by villains. [From The Liberal Mind; The PsychologicalCauses of Political Madness by Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., MD]

    The more I read the more I like Dr.Carson. So far in my weighing of candidates… It’s Dr.Ben Carson!

    1. Alleged Comment says

      Why? He has no political qualification unless you consider colored people as a qualification?

      1. Katherine Gabriel says

        Because he is brilliant and honest and effective and has our country’s best interest at heart. Is that not enough for you, Alleged? (Oh and by-the-way, we don’t say “colored people” any more. Guess you didn’t get the memo.)

      2. 570ben says

        We don’t want people with political qualifications. We want people with people qualifications. I’ll buy my cars according to their colors. Right now we have a silver one, and everybody likes it. Hey, by the way there was a cowboy once named Sunset Carson. Maybe this guy will be our Sunrise Carson. Let’s vote him in!

        If you are capable of reading, try reading this very intelligent man’s plans. If not save yourself from embarrassment and just go back to sleep. I in all honesty have NEVER voted for a color, or a sex … I vote for the most qualified individual for the job.. Our ancestors were not politicians… They were honest hardworking men… like Dr. Ben Carson!

  24. John Doe says

    “What position can a person take who has no animosity toward gay people, but believes in the traditional definition of marriage that would be acceptable?” asked an exasperated Carson.

    None ,.. according to the leftard controlled media. Because they want THEIR ANSWERS with their own state of mind and not yours. To resume, if you dont think like a libtard , then you are a biggot or a racist, and since the subject in this case is black , and belongs to a minority ,he cant be either. I wonder why we have let a mentally ill group to take a political stance and control half of this nation.

      Because we are LAZY!

  25. senior65gal . says

    Dr. Carson is holding his own in spite of the demented thinking of the liberals. Liberals do not have the ability y to think rationally. They have been taught the liberal spin since they were in diapers and it will not change now. Old saying, “you can not rationalize with the irrational.” Dr. Carson has common sense on his side, plus, he is constitutional, conservative and Christian.

  26. John Doe says

    The left agenda is satanic. If you dont believe it google “satanism and the kundalini serpent” and hit their home page. They are an organized religion , that despise God and will try to destroy everything that God represents. They dont describe themselves as evildoers ,but as aspiring gods themselves. Of course satan will use his mastery of lies to make them believe all his crap, and his followers have the same ideas and agendas that the democrats are pushing for here in the USA. They are preparing the way for the anticrist in a very real way. All has been covered with the help of the left media. So most people just keep dumbed down on their computers, believing all the media conditioning while this group actively move on politics to destroy America from the inside and all that we represent, including our alliance to God. Wake up.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but when I see this Gay stuff thrown in my face so often, all I see is a smoke screen about something that is totally inconsequential and doesn’t have anything to do with the real issues that need to be addressed. Whether a candidate is for or against Gay anything doesn’t even have anything to do with moral values. Our current President is an example. There is nothing that is going on now that has anything to do with Gay anything. We need to hear about the economy, the deficit, National Security, Our Armed forces, our schools and education, housing. They’re just killing time and leading a false trail.

          Umm no. How do you know he won’t do the same thing because he REFUSES to be a politician FIRST before getting elected and PROVING HIMSELF.

Beyond that I listen to what he says and the team he is building and it looks good, IMO! Sure, I could be disappointed, BUT I AIN’T giving up because I have no guarantees either! Ain’t built that way!

      He can do that as Congressmen, governor, councilman, etc. PROVE YOURSELF FIRST Ben. You know that as a brain surgeon. You don’t get handed the scalpel unless YOU PROVE yourself first.

        1. Alleged Comment says

          obama had virtually no political experience. He was just a community organizer. BC has NO political experience.

          I did not know you concentrated on race. Are you what they call a racist?

          1. Jim Tapscott says

            Like me he is judging Ben Carson on HIS record! Have you heard him speak? Read his book? Checked out who is on his team? Do you know his history? Have you bothered to check or are you stuck on his skin color? I warned folks about Clinton as well, and they did not listen either and let me see, now Hillary is running! What about her record? Think she will use Bill’s victims as references? I know, none of this will make a difference to you. You are locked in!

          2. Steve Harmon says

            I was responding to your incredibly ignorant statement, “Obama wannabee”. There is no comparison but the color of his skin. BTW, yup, I’m a huge racist, misogynist and all kinds of other bad things, how does that excuse your ignorant statement?

          3. Alleged Comment says

            Yes, how does that excuse your ignorant statement?

          4. Steve Harmon says

            Ignorant statements are just that, I don’t make ignorant statements, I asked you about your ignorant statement that Dr. Carson is an Obama-bin-Lyin’ wannabee. You are obviously embarrassed by that and are trying to obfuscate. That’s fine, your response answers my question to you. When you have the guts to either apologize or clarify how you can see a world renown neurosurgeon and a Republican as a “O” wannabee, you will have some credibility. Good luck with that Skippy.

        He is not another Obama! I warned so many people about Obama but so many people voted for him anyway.You must not know ANYTHING ABOUT BEN Carson or you would not be saying what you say! Or are you just looking at the color of his skin, not the content of his character. And are you judging me by the same criteria? Maybe YOU are another liberal/progressive prevaricator, using the Saul Alinsky methodology? Where is my integrity falling short AC? We have a number of “proven” politicos in office now! How are they doing? How is their track record? What guarantees do you have for them? Who do you favor? Get real AC!

    Homosexuality is a sin, and those who partake of it are sinners pure and simple. They would like to tell you that they can’t help themselves but I can tell you that they have out smarted themselves when they think that just because they like what they are doing that the rest of us need to make it legal so they won’t be breaking the law. No matter how many people condone this lifestyle it is still breaking God’s law and that trumps any law this government makes. meh

    Exactly how are homosexuals being discriminated against?
    1. They can vote, nothing here
    2. They can live wherever they want, nothing here
    3. They can work wherever they want, nothing here
    4. They can shop wherever they want, nothing here.
    The marriage is questionable.
    Should an well established organization change century old rules to accommodate a minority who don’t believe in their (church) doctrine?
    Are we going to lower the age of sexual consent, to make pedophiles socially acceptable? Thats where this is heading people. ………..

    1. headonstraight says

      The gay argument is that they are “discriminated against” by those who decline to be sufficiently “tolerant” as to recognize their perversion as normal and as equal to heterosexual marriage. In other words, they have re-defined tolerance as unqualified acceptance or even endorsement, and then assaulted reason by misapplying their aberrant definition, all in their eager quest to somehow be recognized as “normal,” which they most certainly are not.

    2. ohmama says

      Gays also have every right to marry the opposite sex, just like the rest of us normal heterosexuals. They are not asking for the same rights, they are asking for special rights.

      Carson is right, in that homosexuality is not biology. No one is “born” gay. Homosexuality is a choice of lifestyle regarding sexual preference and represent less than 3% of the population, that includes gays, lesbians and transgenders.

  35. Michael Dennewitz says

    I have a ton of respect for this man. What more can I say. I love the way the other newscasters are at a lack for words when he lays one on them. But, of course, he’s being interviewed by Geo Soros’ people, that’s why they all are like, “well, ummm, err, aaa, let’s change the subject!”. Ha! I love it!!

  36. Michael Dennewitz says

    Does anyone actually know what the topic of discussion started out to be before trolls tried to drag it off in another direction??

  37. Morton212 says

    LOL! “The liberal media is scared to death of conservatives who don’t fit their narrative”

    Its exactly the opposite. I would say that consensus for gay rights is in the vast majority of views of American voters. Liberals are delighted to expose conservative homophobia because it paints their nutty opponents like Carson – as being somewhere between paranoia and last century.

    1. Cherie Lynn Davis says

      You need to take another look at NORMAL, conservative, American patriots. They disagree with homosexuality, in general, but they are willing to live and let live….something those on the Left will never do. Talk about nutty opponents? The gay rights people will not be satisfied till everyone is bowing down to their unusual behavior. It is still a free Country as far as I know and everyone is entitled to their own opinions even when others disagree with them.

      1. Morton212 says

        Don’t get me wrong – but this column rarely attracts ‘NORMAL, conservative, American patriots’.

        It panders to conservative conspiratorialists who believe that an extreme socialist movement is planning to subjugate the Constitution, that the press is all bent to the extreme left, and that Obama is a Kenyan communist who wants to impound guns.

        1. Cherie Lynn Davis says

          This column is a one-time article on how Ben Carson views homosexuals. How can you imply that, ” It panders to conservative conspiratorialists who believe that an extreme socialist movement is planning to subjugate the Constitution, that the press is all bent to the extreme left, and that Obama is a Kenyan communist who wants to impound guns.”? There may be some who have extreme views on the Right, but no more so than those on the Left who harbor extreme views. Neither side with extreme views should be thrown into the same pot with conservative views on both sides.

          1. Morton212 says

            Column in the sense that it selects topics that warm the hearts of extreme right wingers. It uses a series of right-wing columnists to put articles every day that pander to xenophobia, homophobia, islamaphobia and Obamaphobia.

          2. Cherie Lynn Davis says

            Well, like I said before, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I don’t see it as pandering to, “xenophobia, homophobia, islamaphobia and Obamaphobia,” but rather a place where everyone can share opinions. I think it is fun to view all opinions, which is part of the reason this Country is so great. Can you really imagine it being any other way?

          3. Morton212 says

            I have no problem with expressing one’s opinion. Its a two way street – I am merely pointing out how delusional many of the views expressed in this column can be,

            In these postings for example:

            “until the corruption in charge figured out how to fix elections.”

            “That was the way it used to be done ; before this ” Communist ” took the ‘ chair ‘.

            I’ve never seen and for sure never met an “Intelligent liberal” where did you find one?

            Sometimes vigilante justice was the only justice! Perhaps we need desperately to go backwards!!??

            I think that the media has abandoned all pretense of being unbiased and no longer reports the news. They are more like Goebbels and now simply distribute propaganda for the left.

            Miley Cyrus, for instance, has the ear of our very young people and is helping to mold them into a biased and ignorant, self absorbed generation. Promoting the hatred of anything Christian and anti-police with her rhetoric.

            I, too, am sick of “gay rights” Gay people don’t have the right to push their sex life in my face at every turn

          4. Cherie Lynn Davis says

            I can see where you are coming from but this kind of hate speech comes from both sides of the spectrum and we can’t take it personally. Many of these people are lacking in social graces, tolerance and knowledge. It comes down to everyone making the time to stay apprised of what is going on in our Country. Just today, I told a young man he looked like Marco Rubio (which he truly did) and he wanted to know who that was. There are certain factions in politics which rely on this kind of ignorance to maintain power. It is really sad that they put the Country’s best interests aside to satisfy their own selfish ambitions. So many of these folks have just lost their way and do not recognize the damage they are doing to our Country in the process.

          Expecting the govt regardless of political machinations by either party in power to put the citizens of the USA FIRST….POTUS Obama has FAILED (miserably, political, and intentionally) in HIS endeavor; all pursuant to HIS personal agenda of change/revenge/socialism, sans cause and entitlement for specific ethnic groups (Muslims included) with contrived reasons sans sensibilities.

          His heart, mind and soul (?) have strong leanings towards the Muslims and the Islamic way of life created around 622BC +/- by a camel herder. The citizens of this greatest country forged – is the United States of America 1776 and we demand more and deserve more. We are in essence the “only” defenders of freedom in the so-called free world, which is always embroiled in dire straits of chaos and greed……for naught.
          Yes, we made errors in judgments, some canny some not.

          Daily prosperity and security of the USA and the world……pursuant to his own dysfunctional life from birth forward and HIS latent memories of HIS life’s angst regarding his upbringing in the Middle East….clearly, he is “trying” to get even for same and to level the playing field. His words and actions substantiate his thinking process 24/7 in his favoring Muslims and the Islamic way of life…. beheading infidels (non-believers of Qur’an) etcetera, which is anyone not a Muslim. If you are a Muslim, IT’S WHAT YOU DO! Google the Koran.

          Digressing further into diverse details, it’s suffice to say the USA comes first and WILL always assist other countries to follow us by giving them what they need on ongoing basis in a faithful diligent manner.

          We (USA) are not the aggressors of greed and EVIL machinations.

    The DemonRatts n Libtards are going Bonkers because they CAN’T Get anything on Dr. Carson. He’s already Wealthy, he’s not playing around on his Wife , he’s not on Drugs so they are going berserk to try to find some dirt on him ! You can’t be a Dummy and become a World famous Neurosurgeon !

    1. Morton212 says

      There is no need to demonize Carson. Put him on TV and he does it all by himself. He comes across as a seriously disturbed personality – with a seriously immature and myopic idea of US culture and dysfunctional ideas about finance.

      1. Cherie Lynn Davis says

        After all our exchanges of ideas, you don’ really mean this do you??

        1. Morton212 says

          I cannot take Carson seriously. Whether his theories on homosexuality caused by incarcerating men in prison, or his economic theories on ‘fair taxes’. And then what appears to be extraordinary hypocrisy about government assistance to the poor and needy – bearing in mind that almost every facet of his own professional success and sustenance was enabled by government assistance.

          1. Cherie Lynn Davis says

            Have you read “Gifted Hands” and “Ben Carson…RX For America?” If after reading those two books you still feel the same way about him, then I will agree to disagree with you. Please keep me advised because you may change your mind.

          2. Morton212 says

            I have no bone to pick about his accomplishments as a neuro-surgeon; from all accounts he is held in high regard for that. However, among my own set of friends I have some accomplished professionals, some of whom feel qualified to wander into other fields in which their experience is entirely theoretical. That is how I feel about Carson. My check list for what I expect of a President is very specific. It starts with an ability to exude confidence and explain complex issues in an entirely believable way that is acceptable by all levels of education and professional experience. Presidents must rise above the temptation to be judgmental. They must communicate a confidence that they understand the issues and have the ability to delegate to the best expertise that can solve the problems – and accept responsibility for them. The ability to navigate through the labyrinth of Federal politics is also an attribute that does not come from anything but real experience – nor to be taken seriously by his peer in other nations..

          3. Cherie Lynn Davis says

            Your expectations for someone to qualify to be president are reasonable. However, if you take into consideration the mess that career politicians have thrust upon us, we might be much better off by electing a non-politician this time around. (It has occurred many times in the past.) It may remind those who have contributed to the chaos which now exists, that the American people are tired of their shenanigans. It really is time to get rid of the same old cycle of elected officials looking out for themselves rather than the people who elected them. Just my thoughts on the subject but I’ll bet we could find a lot of reasonable folks who would agree.

          4. Morton212 says

            The problem that you identify is really only superficial – not that it is not important – but the real problems are not so obvious to most voters.
            The POTUS can be seen as the chairman of a very very very powerful establishment, largely shadowy, and which uses the elected Congressmen and Senators more as employees than legislators. This establishment that Eisenhower warned us about several generations ago – owns most of the production resources in the USA, and has accrued most of the assets. It writes most of the legislation for the Federal government and makes money in every direction of global markets – from supplying the armaments to feuding nations – to owning the energy supplies.

            It takes not just a commanding leader in the person of the POTUS, but a man who is skilled at subterfuge, skilled at forging compromises, and skilled at selling it to the American people often disguised at something entirely different to what it really is. And this leader must constantly try and infuse a morality and the spirit of the Constitution into all of these dealings; most of the time this is a lonely enterprise. To do all of this he must also understand in great detail – the nuance of managing the two houses of the legislature, and dealing with the judiciary.

            Its an almost impossible task, but one which you can rate in degrees of success. Bill Clinton, for example, managed all of it quite well, but achieved very little as his legacy. GWB totally lost control – early on in his administration – and the results are well known. Obama’s legacy has not yet been written – but he may well emerge as the toughest and most competent of our leaders in the last 60 years. Because of this – he has spawned an huge amount of anger and hatred from those in the establishment that he has put in check.

            By Matt Patterson
            (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)

            Watch False Messiah Video

            Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria
            akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did
            a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

            Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered
            into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores
            along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer;” a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

            He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a
            legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the
            white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s
            “spiritual mentor;” a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president? There is no evidence that he ever attended or worked for any university or that he ever sat for the Illinois bar. We have no documentation for any of his claims. He may well be the greatest hoax in history.

            Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed
            the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white
            candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like
            Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted
            a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the
            eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American
            injustices, even if they were ‘a bit’ extreme, he was given a pass. Let that
            Sink in: Obama was given a pass – held to a lower standard because of the color
            of his skin.

            Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said)
            “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest? Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course.

            But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and
            regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially
            white liberals, feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back.

            Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.

            And that is what America did to Obama.

            True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why
            would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois ; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

            What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time
            Obama speaks? In 2008 many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

            The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches) And what about his character?

            Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job,
            campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to
            advertise his own powerless-ness, so comfortable with his own incompetence.
            (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect?

            The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly? In short: our resident is a small-minded man, with neither the
            temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and
            only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and
            prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor
            in the Oval Office.


          6. Morton212 says

            Yes – there have been many attempted hatchet jobs on Obama – and they are all extremely selective about his competencies. As I already pointed out, there is a large reservoir of anger aimed at him – mainly because he eroded their power. And so we see some quite eloquent attacks on his character, experience and skills.

            But – these attacks totally fail to explain how it was that Obama became the most powerful leader on the planet.

            This is the flaw of these attacks – they are basically disingenuous, and warped to an unrealistic narrative.

            Believe what you want, Joe T, but that list is a list that has been distorted for political effect. You are focusing on the wrong person for your anger. Follow the money – and you will find that Barack Obama does not even register on that list. You are simply acting as a megaphone for the real crooks.

            Good grief! This implies there is a shadow government behind the government that everyone thinks is in control. Is there a solution or are we doomed???

    I like Ben Carson just fine and he may do better than Jeb or Mike-in such a case I will be glad to vote for him

    ben is right, but the left will NEVER admit it!

  41. larry says

    Dr. Carson is my candidate! He is “up there” on various conservative polls. And he really does look for common sense solutions!

  42. ricktenny says

    So far I think Ben Carson is the strongest Candidate on the Rep. ticket. I think it’s an outright criminal shame that the first black president treated his presidency and the United States with the lack of care and diligence he did. That is as civil as I can put it, without mentioning his trying to turn our Nation into a third world country and on and on. (see, still civil)
    The end result I am afraid is some voters being swayed by Dr. Carson’s ethnicity. I am not saying a bunch of bigots would not want another one. I am saying subconsciously even intelligent voters may be put off by the record of one black president.
    I hope that’s not the case and he rises to the top in the primaries and goes on to be the great President we all need and deserve. He has my support.

    BUD please read my initial statement…. I stated quite clearly how I felt about his suggested idea of a sharpshooter…. I remember Friday, November 22, 1963…. all too well… It was a heart breaking three days.

      I scrolled back through the posts which showed up at the link in Disqus’s email to me, and I’m not sure I found your “initial statement.” It’s not clear why your post was addressed to me.

    It’s not clear who has alegely claimed that gay marriage is exactly the same as interracial marriage, what is exactly the same is the hate, bigotry and venom which is directed toward gay marriage.

    Ret. General Drops Bombshell: Obama Should Be Arrested For This ‘Treasonous Activity’

    Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Paul E. Vallely stated recently during a radio interview that President Obama should be “arrested for treasonous activities.”

    Vallely, while a guest on the Real Side radio program earlier this month, stated above anything else that Obama should be held accountable for his sympathies for the Muslim Brotherhood in particular and his actions regarding the Benghazi tragedy. The retired general said one group that should hold the president’s feet to the fire are high-ranking members of the military. The program’s host, Joe Messina, asked whether Obama would just replace those military leaders with others who agree with him, as he has done several times in the past.

    Vallely responded: “Well then we arrest him for treasonous activities.” He noted that the group he helps lead, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi, counts at least fourteen different actions the president has taken that could be considered treasonous.
    The general listed bringing the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood against President el-Sisi in Egypt, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in Syria among the acts amounting to treason.

    Vallely believes Obama has taken these actions because he has an agenda. “We know he’s a radical Islamic sympathizer. He sympathizes with the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.
    He noted the Middle East is in disarray because of the policies of the administration. “Baghdad is under complete threat.” Further, Vallely pointed out that Major General Qasem Soleimani, from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, is “going to fly in, from what we hear, 8-15 thousand Iranian troops in to bolster Assad in Damascus and save that regime.” Newsweek reported on this move by Iran earlier this month.

    Vallely also took Obama to task for stating a few weeks ago that he is waiting on the Pentagon to give him strategic plans to defeat ISIS. Obama’s remarks also prompted a military official to respond: “What the f— was that? We have given him lots of options, he just hasn’t acted on them,” as reported by Fox News.

    Vallely was not surprised at this response. The DOD is always working on multiple operational plans to address threats to the United States, he said. The problem is Obama “has no heart. He is a loser. I think he’s a coward, and he does not want to engage.”
    Vallely believes it is up to Congress to “shut down” the president on multiple fronts using the power of the purse, among other tools.

    “I’m tired of the deceit, the lies, the deception of this administration,” Vallely told Real Side.
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released a report last year listing the Benghazi cover-up and continued aid to Egypt following a military coup among the 76 “lawless acts” for which the Obama administration needed to be held accountable. (The coup took out Muslim Brotherhood-backed Mohammed Morsi, but Cruz highlighted that the aid continued without congressional authorization and contrary to federal law.)

    if the shoe fits….hang ’em!
