Ben Carson is a really interesting political candidate. His views are extreme, but all over the map. Though despite his apostasy (and blackness), I expected him to be a much bigger Freeper candidate. Because his passion seems to be that elected Democrats are evil people. He talks softly and kindly, and uses big words without seeming condescending. And says Hillary Clinton is a Communist Alinskyite, Obamacare is the worst thing since slavery, and America has become like Nazi Germany. Freep gold, and just the paranoid stuff that would make them overlook his unforgivable blackness!
But he never caught fire. And now his non-doctrinaire political views are coming into focus. Specifically, naturally, that he's not anti-illegal enough, for zealous nativism is the black beating heart of Freep. and Freepers are having none of it. And for people who are the last bastion of colorblind equality, his race sure does come up a lot!
gaijin has his 2 issues:
Shaky on gunsmax americana simplifies things quite a bit:
shaky on illegals
Too bad, I kinda liked him.
he’s the black version of Jebgoldstategop compares Carson's black racism to Hillary's:
Illegals, gun confiscation, black racism.goldstategop knows blacks will never vote for a black Republican because they're racist. No explanation of why they don't seem to be voting for white Republicans either...
All reasons why I will never vote for Ben Carson.
If I want all of those things, I might as well elect Hillary.
Racist Black America will never vote for Carson because he’s the house ni***h. Quite simply, a black Republican is an Uncle Tom.RginTN shows how simple-minded nativism can get:
He will never be President.
And how does Carson know an illegal alien granted citizenship won’t be a terrorist?stevio may be right, though I suspect it's less guilt than envy about a racial vote that does not exist:
No more squishes.
Why does he poll so high with republicans? Because he’s black? I have to think so. Damn white guilt, get over it already.Craigon also hates Carly for being a bit offended by Trump:
Yea, I’m Out. I had Cruz, Trump, Carson on my top 3. Carly dropped off when she showed a little feminist chip on the shoulder during the Kelly brouhaha. I break out in hives at the slightest hint of PC.panzerkamphwageneinz hates vaccinations:
He’s dead.I Hired Craig Livingstone is also obsessed with Carson's blackness:
Wants mandatory vaccinations.
France is now realizing the dangers of vaccines and is changing their policies based on science and not big Pharm.
Ben, it was nice while it lasted.
No one gets a bigger affirmative action boost than a black Republican candidate. OK, maybe a black Democrat... but still.nikos1121 knows soft-spoken and crazy just doesn't hold a candle to loud and crazy...in the primary:
I mean, seriously. Herman flippin’ Cain was the front-runner for a while last time around.
I want a leader of men and women in the white house, who rings clear as a bell.
I’m for Trump...end of story.
