Dr. Ben Carson
“Progressives always try to rename everything and redefine everything,” said former head of Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgery Dr. Ben Carson today in the opening speech at the Conservative Political Action Comittee (CPAC) conference. “For instance, if you’re prolife, you’re anti-woman. If you're pro-traditional family, then you're a homophobe. If you’re white and you oppose a progressive black person then you’re racist. If you're black and you oppose the progressive agenda, you're crazy.”
Carson paused, “And if you're black and you oppose a progressive agenda, and you're pro-life, and you're pro-family, they don't even know what to call you.”
“You end up on some sort of watch list for extremists,” he said smiling. Carson had been added to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s "extremist watch list" (a list that maps the locations of mostly neo-Nazis and white supremacists) before removing him after a backlash.
Carson said he didn’t want to focus on that negative event, however, and “what we do have to pay attention to is how to use the incredible brains that God gave us, and recognize when things don’t work and how to fix them.”
Carson lambasted the solutions of the Great Society, saying that “everything these programs were supposed to fix has gotten worse” from the numbers of people on food stamps to broken families and levels of incarceration.
“Intelligent people would look at all that and say we need to change course,” said Carson.
“Real compassion is using our intellect to find ways to allow people to climb out of dependency and realize the American dream,” he said to audience cheers.
“It is our responsibility to take care of the indigent; it is not the government’s responsibility,” he said.
Oh, yes. I dare call the Left Wing crazy, fascist, racist... and many other things they so richly deserve be be slammed as. And I will continue to do so... because the Left Wing has to be pointed to and called what it is. They can't be allowed to get away with their evil. All forms of statism are Left Wing. Including Nazism, Communism, Islamism, any form of dictatorship/tyranny. It's always Left Wing because the very fundamental definition of Left Wing is statist, state supremacist, collectivist. And it always involves force of some kind or another, be it physical or psychological.
