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!

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

Americans increasingly prefer

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." Now, almost six years after those comments, it´s

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch.

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
