LOS ANGELES, February 18, 2013 — Dr. Benjamin Carson created a stir by challenging President Barack Obama’s class warfare at the National Prayer Breakfast. While some have debated the appropriateness of speaking out in that particular forum, Obama does not like to be challenged anywhere by anybody. For speaking out, Dr. Carson is about to get “Palined.”
What the liberal bullies did to Marco Rubio will be child’s play compared to the meat grinder Carson is about to face. Carson is a black conservative, and every ounce of hostility and ideological bigotry will be directed at this man until he is ground into dust. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Governor Sarah Palin will just watch and shake their heads.
Every conservative is either “stupid” or “evil.” For the stupid ones, liberals repeat the words “uninformed,” “misinformed” and “uneducated” into every other sentence. The evil ones are “meanspirited,” “extremist” and “draconian.” Those pointing out ideological bigotry are called “biased,” as if one should be neutral in the face of any bigotry. Another word is “hateful,” which means disagreeing with a liberal.
Dr. Carson will most likely be thrown into the stupid category because he comes across as a nice fellow. He speaks softly and calmly, so the evil narrative does not fit.
Because he speaks slowly, his intelligence will be questioned in the same way Clarence Thomas and Tim Scott have had their intellect questioned. While this is absolutely racist, liberals escape the scrutiny by simply being liberals. Now if a conservative noted the slow, speaking style of liberal black South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, all heck would break loose.
The issue is not whether Dr. Carson will be attacked. What matters is if Republicans praising him now will stand up for him when the attacks come. Will they throw him under the bus like they did Palin and Michele Bachmann, or will they actually demand that the ideological bigotry stop?
Dr. Carson has to be destroyed by the left because he is everything Obama is not.
Dr. Carson has well documented real private sector accomplishments in a demanding field. Obama defenders insist that he is a “scholar,” although all evidence of that remains sealed. Even if he were one, scholars are talkers. Dr. Carson is a doer. He is a surgeon who separated conjoined twins. He has saved countless lives. To say Obama does not come close to measuring up to Carson is fair because most people on this planet do not match up to Carson. Even if Obama were not “inferior” or a “lightweight” in life, the unalterable truth is that Carson is superior, a heavyweight. Liberals hate terms like “better” and “worse,” but in terms of accomplishments that matter, Carson is the far better man. He is an exceptional man in an exceptional nation.
Dr. Carson is also religious. He directly credits turning to God with turning his own life around. The left will therefore look for any excuse to declare him a hypocrite, as they did with President George W. Bush.
George W. Bush is an evangelical. Clarence Thomas is black. Benjamin Carson is both. He is the worst of all possible worlds for the liberal black leadership. At some point black communities will see they have been exploited by everybody from Jesse Jackson Sr. and Jr. to Al Sharpton and Barack Obama. Barack Obama chanted “Yes, we can.” People look at Benjamin Carson and see a man who actually “did” and still does. In his world “can” actually means more than mere “being.” It means “can do.” For preaching doing over dependence and God over government, Dr. Carson will be attacked.
Dr. Carson is a genius with a knife, but he has never experienced the receiving end of knives wielded by liberal Obama defenders. He had better be prepared. Conservatives everywhere must be.
