NBC News on Dr. Ben Carson:
´Blinded by the White´

Breirbart´s Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/29/2013 10:15:58 PM

On Sean Hannity´s Fox News Channel program Tuesday night, while discussing same-sex marriage, Dr. Ben Carson made the point that if we change the definition of marriage for homosexuals, what´s to stop NAMBLA or those into bestiality from demanding the same. The media, which is always ready to destroy any black man who dares think for himself, uniformly pounced today. In response to the manufactured uproar, the soft-spoken Carson (who was a hero to the left until he came out as a conservative), did the interview rounds on cable Friday, including Andrea Mitchell´s

Dr. Carson knew this was coming and made the conscious decision to speak out. He saw what happened to Sarah Palin just like the rest of us. 50% of us are with you Dr. The rest are useful idiots.

Dr. Carson is an amazing success story... which is why he must be destroyed... black men cannot be successful in the USA unless they are working for Jesse Jackson or the Rev Al. Very sad...

It´s pretty damn amusing to watch liberals go over the cliff when presented with facts they themselves create...

A noted British ´medical journal´ came out a year ago with a piece basically summed up as, ´Hey...Pedophilia ain´t all *that* bad!´

My favorite jibe to my ´tolerant and diverse´ friends who support this madness is to let ´em know - when I show up at the local marriage license bureau with 6 attractive K-pop chicks - and somebody balks at handing us a license...there´ll be hell to pay! It´s pretty damn funny watching ´em try and ´distinguish´ between *their* right to redefine marriage - and what I think works...

Oh well. Mebbe a few 2NE1 Youtube videos will convince ´em...

The attacks on carson are more than attacks on Carson,they´re warnings to other black independent thinkers to shut up and sit in the corner. The black voting bloc has been the lefts backbone for the past 40 years,there´s no way they want the right peeling away their voters.

It´s really black leftists that are the Uncle Toms for conforming to the liberal policies to the tune of over 90%.They want to convert the latino population to the same group think voters.

They are marginalizing the black voting block, who are starting to wake up to what they voted for. The libs just need them to stay in lockstep long enough to allow the libs to replace the disillusioned with enough illegal immigrants to keep the libs in power. The illegals will be kept enslaved, the new victim class, with the liberal handouts....just enough to keep them voting for the lib politicians

The unintended consequences could be interesting. While I am sure the Mormons do not want to go back to plural marriage, just suppose some of them do? Will the Supreme Court say no? Considering that Utah was not allowed to join the union until they renounced plural marriage, would they have a claim to reparations for costs incurred by compliance with federal orders?

#11 makes an excellent point. We really need look no further than Utah´s history and the law. The rest is just exotic speculation, although Dr. Carson is correct to speculate about NAMBLA and bestiality.

Why does anyone watch NBC? They´ve been caught so many times slanting news that it must be hard to believe anything they "report".

The LEFT knows exactly how it likes its black folks. They prefer anonymous and compliant welfare-spongers and EBT-fraud artists. But if a black person is to be prominent and express opinions, then they must be their version of "trained monkeys" i.e. major league sports figures, Hollywood stars or rappers. And leave the thinking and political pronouncements to their white, liberal, academic political betters. Brilliant, successful, accomplished and religious black men such as Carson are branded traitors to their race and---much worse!---to the Movement.

I´ve often thought that the left treats its black constituency like pets.

´We bought you, we house-trained you, we feed you.... so stay here and be loyal only to us!´

The left has placed invisible collars and leashes on their pet blacks and scold them severely, chaining them in the back yard, when they´re bad. But they have been taught well to bark at other blacks passing them by.

Sad. These not ´pet-people´. They too are human beings who were born with brains and the free will to think for themselves. For doing just that, this is how the massa´s keep the weak ones in the yard. By abuse.

More racism from the usual suspects, the Left. Race is a big deal to Leftists and only to Leftists, who lump all black people together based on the color of their skin while normal Americans regard other Americans of all colors as individuals and judge them according to the content of their characters. This would seem to be, and is, common sense as well as the American way. But for Leftists it is always and all about groups and collectivities, never about actually existing unique individuals.

The Leftists are the racists. The Leftists are the ones they are against. They project and attack their own racist attitudes upon normal Americans who, unlike the Leftists, are not obsessed with race and do not regard the color of someone´s skin as the essential and most important thing about them.

If Obama supporters ever start this diatribe about Republicans and Conservatives being
homophobes just ask, "what´s worse: having a phobia of them or killing them?",
then post/mention the articles about the Trinity Church in Chicago and the gay members
who were Obama´s lovers. They were killed execution style prior to the 2008 election. There won´t be much if any discussion by lefties after that. One article gets even more validity because the mother of one of them was once a Chicago police officer and she fingers Obama directly for the murder of her son. This will stop them dead in their tracks. Victory will be yours.

If you need more firepower just mention where this is all going because of Obama´s appointment of NAMBLA member Kevin Jennings to the education department. This is no doubt what they have in mind by attacking Boy Scouts of America. Say, "Kevin Jennings must be, ahem, behind this because he wants some fresh stuff".

I´ve listened to Dr. Carson several times -- now.....

I don´t see a shrinking violet in this successful man....

I want to personally thank Dr. Carson for allowing me to acknowledge -- once again -- my respect for man and women of color.

I am not a bigot because I dislike obama or the revrump jackson. I simply "dislike" them for who they are in their content of character...

Thank you Dr. Carson for your quiet and positive approach to a difficult situation...

I am perplexed by the black population in America, by their lack of a vocal, angry response to the actions of the left. I cannot think of a more egregious, heinous form of racism than assigning what one is allowed to think by the color of their skin. Further, as suggested by earlier posts, the day will come when the hispanic population reaches the critical mass as a voting bloc that concerns for the black population will disappear. There will be no need for useful tools like Sharpton, Jackson, Toure. Dr. Carson spent the last part of his CPAC speech talking about all of the things that all Americans have in common. That is the message of hope and unification that needs to transcend skin color. I want black men and women as my neighbors, as successful business people free to think and pursue whatever they desire. I do not want them tucked away in the wards of New Orleans, as Democrats were happy to have them pre-Katrina, dependent upon government. Wake up and be free!

This is what the Civil War was for, why 600,000 men died, why the fight over the Emancipation Proclamation and the fight for the 13th Amendment ... why the Civil Rights movement and Dr. King were so important ...

... so that honest, moral black men might be viciously derided for speaking the truth.

Bottom line: the left will claim that any black thinker is ´not really black´ if he or she does not toe the dims´ ideological line. So what are they really saying? They are saying that real black people all think alike. Wonderful. So how will they ever distinguish themselves if they are robots or automatons? For the dims: they won´t. And that´s just fine, so long as they vote the politically correct way. They don´t want black success or prosperity; they want black votes. Period.

It seems the bullied have become the bullies. Dr. Carson is asking a valid question; if marriage cannot contain natural elements that define it and make it what it is; on what grounds can you deny any person, or groups of persons, to marry whoever or whatever they want? Answer: You can´t.

My take on this is that the race baiters like Jackson and Sharpton etc. have buit a nice little mountain to live on and simply don´t want to loose it. They live like royalty without doing a single lick of hard work. And those like Carson, Sowell, Thomas, Williams, and many others are a threat to what they have become. As such, they have to attack it without pulling any punches. And the liberal left is more that willing to jump in with them because they see a voting bloc that they have bought with government programs and simply want to keep them on the plantation. It´s really just another form of slavery and too many blacks don´t understand that.

The dislike of successful Conservative Black men runs deep through the Liberal culture.
Black kids in school are taunted for "acting white" because they do well in school. This is going to be hard to overcome. The biggest "black" Democrat Uncle Tom of them all has to be Barack Obama. He is doing the bidding of his white , liberal master Saul Alinski.
His other white master is Karl Marx. Talk about being blinded by White Liberals. No independent thinking from this Mulatto bozo!

The situation is direr than #9 states. The Liberals/Progressives and the “politically correct” hustlers have created an environment where any non-black who says anything contrary to Progressive dogma is labeled a lying bigot. The only view that can break through this wall of “politically correct” bigotry is that expressed by another black. When a person like Dr. Ben Carson expresses a contrary thought, it is viewed as a mortal threat to their control. Thus, he must be destroyed!

If truth were on the side of the Progressives they would use it to present reasoned arguments for their position. Instead they have used every vile slander against the good doctor to shut down rational evaluation of the truth.

Time to attack the TV mafia media! If there was ever a more perfect time for all to monitor Diane Sawyer, Steve Pelley, Geroge Stepha crapolis, Brian Williams, etc, now is the time. Record, virally blog each lie and insult directed at Ben Carson, and attack the media just the way you´ve been wasting your time attacking the dead greedy old Congress thieves. This time around, swamp Diane and Tom and Katie and George with complaints and accusations of their falsehoods. Ben is so un-political, so pure of heart, they, the devil media cannot handle it. It´s like when the horror movie good guys hold a cross up in front of the vampires! They wretch, scream and blow up. Tom Sowell will be the best image and intelligence protector for Dr Carson. Sowell is enough intellectual power to keep Ben from making any errors of inconsistency. But the very best protection for Dr Carson will be America´s support attacking his naysayers. That is, the vast leftwing media conspiracy that gets away with murder. We must attack! and Rush, Mark, Glenn, Sean, Ann, Andrew Napoliatano and Michelle Malkin, all good people must change their protective ways, give out phone email snail mail on all of evil mafia media. You know, Rush, all the good guys have protected media while they give out Congress phones and emails. Now, to win, we have to get our New Media to ATTACK the old commie unionized TV media.

But what are we going to do about the new party line from the Republican Establishment who says the party must become more flexible and accepting of ´gay marriage´ in order to win?
And then there are those right here on Lucianne who claim that if we speak up we are divisive and need to all join together to win. Funny! Joining together isn´t what Rove did in refusing to support the officially nominated candidates from Delaware and Nevada? Instead he supported seven other Republicans who lost their Senate bid.

That headline under Dr. Carson´s picture is actually a double racial insult. It is against him but also against the GOP as it shows a white elephant! Basically, they are saying that the right is "white" and Dr. Carson wants to be on their side and thus, against truth & justice, etc. Is there a bigger piece of garbage than Andrea Mitchell? Would she show a picture of Jane Fonda and say: "Blinded by the Yellow Peril"? Disgusting.

This just proves that there is no future for Blacks in America. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure out that the largest majority of Black America has been dumbed down almost to the point of sadness. Take a look at daily tv: Springer, Povich, Jeremy Kyle: most of their "guests" are blacks who have difficulty identifying the fathers´ of their babies. And none of these shows appear to have a dearth of willing participants. Why don´t prominant black tv personalities speak out against this pathetic abuse of their race?

My hope is that great hordes of Conservatives will stand up and proudly abide, as a badge of honor, the smears and vilification by those on the Left. To be treated so proves that you defy their moral relativism and entitlement mentality. As the cliché goes, when you’re catching flack, you’re over the target. I hope the good Doctor draws satisfaction in venomous attacks he is subjected to, knowing that they represent the sharp distinction that marks his accomplishments and character from their sad depravity.

We cannot allow this accomplished, educated man to be sidelined!
Talk to everyone about his ideas and achievements and do not mention his race. So many people are still unaware of him.
Buy his books, read them and buy the movie, Gifted Hands. Cuba Gooding, Jr. does a great job in his portrayal. Circulate the DVD and the books and circulate them again.

Michelle Malkin once said diversity only works for lefties if you "pledge allegiance to the left for life"...In a nutshell, she was dead on! Lefties love THEIR thug ghetto rapper blacks, THEIR illegal unilingual hispanics, THEIR homosexual over-emotional deviants, but they loathe and abhor any black, hispanic, or gay who leans right and pledges conservative and traditional values in our culture.Simple as that. Thats why we call them HYPOCRITES! Liberalism is a SHAM, a FAKE RELIGION, and so full of UTTER HYPOCRISY! They only care enough about them because they selfishly want their VOTES! Thats it! Nothing else!

Dr. Ben is a fine man, so was his mama, dont care if he is green or purple or blue or Italian or Lebanese or Venezuelan....but since he is CONSERVATIVE, here come the spiteful, wretched, hateful leftwing academia/media attacks. This is a perfect example of why I despise the hypocrites on the left!

Happy Easter everyone! Jesus will rise tomorrow! Praise JESUS!

Ann Coulter takes up ‘Mitt
Romney for President’ chant again

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

How Obama Can Use Executive
Actions to Improve Our Democracy

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Clinton Memos: Hillary’s

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base. The latest cache of previously withheld Clinton documents includes an

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush. Blogress Ann Althouse astutely observes that

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

On Wednesday morning, December 12, 2012, Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, announced on NBC’s Today show that she was expecting. That evening, the NBC Nightly News allocated 33 seconds to the revelation while neither ABC’s World News nor the CBS Evening News bothered to mention it. Today (Thursday, April 17), Chelsea Clinton, daughter of a President and First Lady belonging to the media’s preferred party, announced at a Clinton Global Initiative event in New York City that she is pregnant – and the networks broke out the baby showers in

Passing Amnesty This Year

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is "hellbent" on passing amnesty legislation, and other GOP leaders are signaling to donors and lobbyists that they also want to pass legislation this Congress, even though attempting to do so would depress the GOP base and create divisions within the party ahead of 2014´s midterm elections that could give Republicans control of Congress. According to the Wall Street Journal, Boehner told donors at a Las Vegas fundraiser in March that he was "hellbent on getting this done this year." After he met with President Barack Obama at the White House in February, Boehner said that

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
