Carson proves daft, disturbing — and darling of the GOP

This article sums up many of the crazy things that Ben Carson says and believes. With his frequent mentions of Hitler to his comparing Obamacare with 9-11 I think people should take a second thought about if this is a person who truly deserves to be leading the country. I know that when he was talking about people in America being like Hitler he was talking about President Obama though, he refused to say who he was talking about. I find that very offensive, especially since most of the terrible things people claim Obama has done are either highly exaggerated or never happened (ending capitalism and the Fairness Doctrine for example). The ironic thing is he's talking about Hitler and people having their rights taken away from them while he says that some people are worth less than others (in another article).

Darling? I don't know about that.

He seems pretty medicated to me.

Carson is a coward.

He even admitted to being one. Screw that guy.

He might have some strange views but this is character assassination rather than refuting his views.

PC ALERT!

How can Carson be the GOP darling when Republicans are so called "RACISTS"?

People can try to dissect this holocaust reference any way they want and in the process, conveniently try to make the claim that Carson was pointing out a Hitler/Obama comparison, but what Carson said is 100% correct!

If European Jews had owned guns, WW 2 would have been much different, that alone should be something to think about.
So please put any hurt feelings aside and think about what Ben Carson said, think about it long and hard.

First and foremost, it's called Godwins Law.


Godwin's law does not claim to articulate a fallacy; it is instead framed as a memetic tool to reduce the incidence of inappropriate hyperbolic comparisons.

You can't just reference Hitler and Nazi's whenever you want. There are plenty of references I could make as to the similarities of American conservatives and Nazi's, but beyond this moment you won't see it. It's political grandstanding. It is a sign that you don't have a leg to stand on argument wise.

I disagree but feel free to report me and relax, you will live longer. Satire has always been a powerful way of expressing political views.

Typical Nazi response. Just admit you hate Carson because he is black. Racist!


Really? This is the level of discourse ATS allows?


Relax. He's yanking your chain. I may be wrong but I think he's referring to the constant accusation that anyone that disagrees with Obama is a racist. It couldn't be that they actually disagreed. It had to be because of his skin color. As for Godwin's Law, I think most of the time it's true but there are times when it does not apply.

That is very observant of you. I'm not even to the right politically but the right has been called racists and nazis very often for just giving an opinion or disagreeing. I don't know the person I quoted, maybe he is consistent when it comes to denouncing this style of suppressing debate that has been used by the left but the point I was trying to make remains regardless of that.

You really, really do not like Ben Carson.

May I ask, is it because he is black and not drinking the Huff Po kool-aid?

How dare he not be a Democrat?

He could be a racist. I'm not one to judge but trying to tear down a black man like this. Well it really speaks for itself. I wish there were another explanation but this appears to be the most likely reason for his opposition to Carson.

I think most people feel just because he's a doctor, he has to be smart. Some people are smart at what they do, but when it comes to other areas, they're not so smart. He was a rather quiet candidate at the beginning, but the more he talks, the more I find some of his perspectives rather disturbing.

It seems like the more comfortable a candidate gets, the real person starts emerging.

What is wrong with knowing the real person before you elect them? Is it really better to elect a teleprompter with good writers from special interest groups? I also think being a successful neurosurgeon is good evidence of his intelligence. Elect this guy and you might be surprised by his compassion and thoughtfulness even if he does say things no careers politician would ever say.
