Picking on Ben Carson is too easy. He doesn’t understand the Constitution, he thinks Obama wants to declare martial law so he can pursue a third term, and says other stupid things that a smart person should not say. Yet somehow, he rates as a Serious Candidate-the polls show this. We live in an idiocracy where bottom-feeders like Carson flourish. His ascendance is probably being propelled by racists who finally have a black man they can like because he sounds like the massa.
A while back, Ben got himself in hot water because he doesn’t have a clue about what makes someone gay. He had to walk that dumb shit back. Then he said this:
“I simply have decided, that I’m not going to really talk about that issue anymore because every time I’m gaining momentum, the liberal press says ‘let’s talk about gay rights.’ And I’m just not going to fall for that anymore,” he said.
Translation: When stupid words formulate in my head and I emit them from my face, I can blame the mass media for repeating them.
So that was that. Ben was not going to talk about the gays.
It turns out that’s all he can talk about these days:
In a recent interview with Brett Baier on Fox News, the CNN interview was brought up and the GOP presidential candidate continued to express his frustration with homosexuals claiming that they’re owed civil rights. “I was a little bit irritated [during the CNN interview in March] that he was equating the whole gay marriage issue with the Civil Rights movement,” Carson said. “Because, quite frankly, I didn’t remember any times when there were signs up that says, you know, ‘everybody else here and gay people have to drink at this fountain.’”
Let me ask you this, Ben: were poll taxes and literacy tests a form of discrimination? Eh? News flash-just because there are no “signs”, that doesn’t mean that there is no breach of civil rights. What a turd of an argument for sanctioning homophobia. Discrimination must be on clear signage for it to be called discrimination…OK, dumbass.
There’s something very sad about a minority oppressing another minority. The enemy is forgotten and ignored history. But Ben Carson has transcended that, so he doesn’t stay true to the game. He doesn’t see class, gender and race because he’s wealthy. That sounds like a good thing. But what it really means is he is hopelessly out of touch with people. While it is true that all of our politicians are rich, we rabble need to pick the people who want to understand us. Of course, Ben does that, catering to gun nuts, religious fanatics, conspiracy theorists and unrepentant Obama-haters. Maybe he knows what he’s doing, because he needs those votes-but he will probably never break off from the base and start listening to the mushy middle that all presidential candidates need to win. And I doubt condemning homosexuals to second-class citizenry will put them in his column.
