The Left’s Panic Attack Over Dr. Ben Carson

The Left’s Panic Attack Over Dr. Ben Carson, by Joseph Klein.

The progressive Left’s opposition to President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Ben Carson to be the next Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is predictably condescending, biased and hypocritical. …

It is incredible how progressives such as Pelosi and Schumer, neither of whom experienced real poverty first hand, are ready to demean Ben Carson, who grew up in abject poverty.


They cannot deal with the fact that an incredibly accomplished African-American, who does not buy into the failed progressive ideology of big government social engineering, is poised to take over the leadership of a failing government bureaucracy that would rather dabble in social engineering than get its own house in order. Ben Carson simply does not fit the progressive image of how an African-American should think and act.

“I think the way that I’m treated, you know, by the left is racism,” Ben Carson has said. “Because they assume because you’re black, you have to think a certain way. And if you don’t think that way, you’re ‘Uncle Tom,’ you’re worthy of every horrible epithet they can come up with,” he added.

Liberal Website Calls Ben Carson A ‘Black White Supremacist”, by Brian Anderson.

According to liberals, being black has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with being a leftist pain in the ass. Republicans simply cannot be black because they don’t blame fictional racism for everything that goes wrong. While it’s one thing for radical blacks to call conservative blacks “Uncle Toms” liberal website Salon has stepped it up labeling Ben Carson a black white supremacist. …

Because the liberals have falsely portrayed Trump as a white supremacist, anyone associated with him is also a racist in their thinking.

Logic and truth don’t rate highly in the modern left.
