Ben Carson

“The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduces them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.” – Gustave Le Bon

“Sharpton and I Have the Same Goal,” Says Ben Carson, “Just Different Ideas on How to Get There.”

Ben Carson’s April, 2015, article in National Review stated:

Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking at the National Action Network’s (NAN) 17th annual national convention in New York City. NAN is one of the leading civil-rights organizations in the United States. It was founded in 1991 by the Reverend Al Sharpton to “promote a modern civil rights agenda that includes the fight for one standard of justice, decency and equal opportunities for all people regardless of race, religion, nationality or gender.”

Dr. Carson defended his actions, saying that we should not remain in our camps, but should reach out to the opposition. I agree with Jan Morgan, who said, “When you participate in an event organized by a racist thug, you validate him and give him credibility he does not deserve. Participating in this event is as repulsive to me as Obama meeting with and negotiating with Iran.”

Excuse me Dr. Carson, but Al Sharpton’s only desire is to feed his lust for money and power. He is a far left liberal, filled with hatred and negative rhetoric for America, for whites, police officers, and for anything conservative.

Destroying the areas you live in and others live in, what does that do for the community? Moreover, why should anyone rebuild it when he or she is intent on destroying it for the sake of criminal black men as in Ferguson? Why would Dr. Ben Carson, an educated black man even consider speaking at an Al Sharpton convention? Sharpton has made the following statement:

“We’re not looters. We’re liberators! We are not burners, we’re builders!”

How does Sharpton get funding? By shaking down corporations, hectoring them for their “economic apartheid,” which is just another expression for “racism.”

As far as I’m concerned, a strong conservative black man would never even consider speaking at race-baiter Al Sharpton’s racist rally, National Action Network. I have a lot of problems with Dr. Ben Carson, but this takes the cake.

Carson and the NAACP

Mychal Massie’s article, “Keep Ben Carson Away From the White House,” exposes Carson’s statements regarding NAACP leader, Julian Bond.

Carson, in a prepared comment pursuant to the recent passing of Julian Bond, the former chairman of the NAACP, said: “I am deeply saddened to learn about [the passing of] America civil rights leader Julian Bond. May we continue to honor him for his contributions to society.” (Aug. 16, 2015) (Bond was the first president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, having helped found it with Morris Dees.)

My question to Carson is: Just what contributions to American society did Julian Bond make? Does Carson suggest that hatred, racist diatribes, racist accusations, fomenting racial acrimony, messages of Leninist ideology that rivaled Du Bois, ad nauseam, were in some way beneficial to America? I demand Carson enumerate just what Julian Bond did to improve America.

Top Advisor to Carson, Armstrong Williams, Wants Government to Hire Farrakhan

Armstrong Williams, one of Ben Carson’s top advisers wants Chicago to hire Farrakhan to help stem violence in the city. He said that just seeing the NOI (Nation of Islam) soldiers walking down the street, it would inspire people in the neighborhoods to have more pride in themselves. And those with no pride would know fear. In fact, Armstrong Williams has been a huge Farrakhan for a long time. He even wants taxpayers to fund Farrakhan.

Williams broadcast his radio show live from Farrakhan’s celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March. (600,000 of that million came disguised as empty air) He titled his piece that ran in The Hill,The Nation of Islam Could Be Chicago’s Savior.” Considering the fact that Carson has been climbing in the polls over his tough talk about Muslims, this story may be something Carson won’t want getting traction. But, he knew who Armstrong Williams was when he chose him, so I’m sure this is no surprise to anyone. (See here and here)

In the sermon at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Farrakhan said he was looking for “10,000 in the midst of the million … 10,000 fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny” to retaliate against white Americans because of their alleged oppression of black people.

Armstrong Williams, as Ben Carson’s top advisor, is aligned with a terrorist, that terrorist being Louis Farrakhan who should be arrested and tried.

Dr. Ben Carson would do well to listen to civil rights leader, Booker T. Washington. He was an educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the black community.

Ben Carson on Illegal Aliens

In his book, “America the Beautiful,” Dr. Carson writes on page 102, “I believe we have taken the moral low road on this issue [i.e., illegal aliens]. Some segments of our economy would virtually collapse without these undocumented workers—we all know that—yet we continue to harass and deport many individuals who are simply seeking a better life for themselves and their families. Is there a way to apply logic to this issue and arrive at an intelligent solution?” (Ben Carson Has Presidential Ambitions, But Is Soft On Illegal Aliens; Jerry McConnell; Canada Free Press; 2/4/14).

You Might Like

Carson told a prominent group of Latino elected officials that he also supports giving illegal immigrants a path to legalization and eventual citizenship. This wasn’t in 2004, 2008, 2012, this was last June, 2015.

Sorry Dr. Carson, but I highly doubt the economy would collapse without these law breakers who have illegally come into the USA. According to Criminal Alien statistics, almost 10,000 American citizens die at the hands of illegal aliens every year, aliens that you believe should have a path to citizenship.

First let’s tightly close the border, build a wall like the one around the Vatican, and put armed guards on that wall. Then, when people want to come to this country, let them do it legally, just as European immigrants did in the past.

Mandatory Vaccines

Carson on mandatory vaccines, “Although I strongly believe in individual rights and the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit, I also recognize that public health and public safety are extremely important in our society,” Carson told The Hill in a statement.

“Certain communicable diseases have been largely eradicated by immunization policies in this country and we should not allow those diseases to return by foregoing safe immunization programs, for philosophical, religious or other reasons when we have the means to eradicate them,” he added.

“Vaccinations should be mandatory, with no religious or philosophical exemptions, and schools should check to make sure children have received them. We already have policies in place at schools that require immunization records and things of that nature.” His argument is that we now have open borders, and filth and disease is coming into America which hasn’t been here previously.

Excuse me Dr. Carson, but you obviously haven’t read the countless reports regarding the polio vaccine and SV-40 monkey virus which led to an epidemic of soft tissue cancer in this country. Link (Don’t believe it was by accident either.) Neither have you read about the increase in autism in children because of the variety and number of vaccines given to infants. Apparently you haven’t read about the deaths and illnesses because of the Gardasil vaccine. What about the 23 senior deaths just this year from the flu vaccine given at pharmacies? No thanks Dr. Carson, I prefer to have freedom instead of government force.

Months later, on CNN, Carson dialed back his defense of mandatory vaccines, but I still don’t trust him.

Dr. Carson and Pro-Life

Carson said it is time to stop Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted baby body parts and selling them for financial gain. However, in a 1992 paper, co-authored by Carson, doctors described how they applied “human choroid plexus ependyma and nasal mucosa from two aborted babies in the 9th and 17th weeks of gestation. This is quite a contrast of Carson’s 2015 denunciation of fetal tissue research.

Asked if Planned Parenthood should cease its fetal tissue distribution, Carson demurred. He still favored defunding the group, but would not call for the end of fetal tissue research so long as the fetal tissue was available.


Speaking with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto August 12, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson was asked what he thought of fellow candidate Marco Rubio’s “line at the debate that even in cases of rape and incest he would be against aborting that child.”

“Well, in cases of rape and incest, I would hope that they would very quickly avail themselves of emergency room,” Carson replied. “And in the emergency room, they have the ability to administer, you know, RU486, other possibilities, before you have a developing fetus.”

Really, Doctor? RU486 is killing women in developing nations. Ethel Waters, Martin sheen’s wife Janet, Eartha Kitt, Kelly Wright, Faith Daniels, and many others were products of rape.

Cavuto interjects: “That is at the point of conception; do you see that as life doctor?”

“Certainly once the heart starts beating, certainly at that point,” said Carson. “If we are willing to open up the discussion, both sides, I think we can come to accommodation.”

Excuse me, but is Carson saying that life is not viable until a heartbeat can be heard at eight to 12 weeks? Lifesitenews called Carson’s office for clarification, but the request was denied.

Carson’s Temper

Ben Carson “had a temper so violent that he would attack other children, even his mother, Sonya Carson, at the slightest provocation.” His mother worked as a maid, sometimes holding two or even three jobs to support her family. Carson, in his interview with the American Academy of Achievement, recalled trying to hit his mother over the head with a hammer because of a disagreement over what clothes he should wear. In a dispute with a classmate over a locker, he cut a three-inch gash in the other boy’s head. At the age of 14, Carson nearly stabbed a friend to death because the boy had changed the radio station. He said he prayed to God to help him and started reading Proverbs to overcome this terrible temper.

The Second Amendment

In 2013, Dr. Carson appeared on Glenn Beck’s show and stated that we have no right to automatic weapons in large cities. He elaborated, “I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it.” Yet, if you live out in the rural areas by yourself, then it’s okay to own an automatic weapon.

In an article in the Washington Times, Carson stated he felt all gun owners and firearms should be registered, but now he’s changed his mind on that because of our fiscal situation in this country. Dr. Carson also believes the founders gave us the second amendment. They did not. It is a God given right that our founders put in our Bill of Rights in the 1787 Constitution. I do not believe Carson understands, “shall not be infringed.”

Constitutional Convention

Carson spoke at an Article V event last April, 2015. Is it possible he is unaware that the BBA and Article V are connected? Many have written on the dangers of a new convention, especially with the leftist politicians in charge today.

Obama’s Iran Deal

Again, from Mychal Massie’s article, “Carson tweeted out approval for the sham Iran deal [approval process] orchestrated by Sen. Bob Corker, which in reality [was] the GOP establishment surrendering its constitutional oversight once more.”

That Carson supported a deal that threatened America is telling. Political pundits were outraged at the congressional treachery of Republicans, but Carson praised their actions.

It is my conclusion that Carson’s actions and/or comments are those of a man who knows exactly where he stands.

Dr. Carson’s Faith

Ben Carson’s father was a Seventh Day Adventist preacher who divorced Carson’s mother when Ben was eight years old. Seventh Day Adventism was founded by Ellen White, whose many visions were part of her doctrine. Adventism does not agree with orthodox Biblical Christianity in many areas.

Writing for, Steve Deace noted: “There was Carson posting on Facebook that Easter wasn’t about Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for the sins of the world, and ensuing resurrection proving He was the only Son of God. Rather, Carson posted Easter was about ‘acceptance’ and said Christians and Muslims are children of the same God. That, of course, would be news to Christians and Muslims alike. Since one side says the basis for their faith is Christ’s resurrection from the dead, and the other side claims he was never crucified in the first place.”


There is much more on Carson, including his connection to Yale’s Skull and Bones, and his foolish support of school choice. Remember, when one penny of taxpayer money goes to a child for choice, all the government regulations go with him, thus eliminating true free choice. Suffice to say, the tidbits in this article eliminate Carson as a presidential candidate. He is tied to the same elements Obama is tied to. When will so-called conservative voters stop blindly throwing their support to anyone who sounds good or delivers a good sound bite?

Please God, we need another Nineveh for America…help our people to see through the deception and choose the leader who will make America great again.
