The ‘Uncle Tom-ing’ of Ben Carson Begins:

March 24, 2013

by Larry O’Connor
Ben Carson

MSNBC host and commentator Touré fired a clear and distinct shot at Dr. Ben Carson Friday, hammering the African-American Presidential Medal of Freedom winner for daring to challenge the Obamadoxy parroted by Touré and progressive journalists bent on supporting the President’s policies at all costs.

Dr. Ben Carson splashed onto the national stage with his blistering criticism of ObamaCare last month at the National Prayer breakfast, with President Obama seated just a few feet away. Carson is a heroic surgeon, Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery, who performed groundbreaking medical miracles at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is a brilliant and passionate advocate for free market principals, individual responsibility, and the freedoms and liberty embodied in resistance to bloated big government programs like ObamaCare. He also happens to be black. Therefore, he must be stopped, now.

Like Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Colin Powell (until he got the message) and Herman Cain before him, Carson will now be the target of the most vile and reprehensible kinds of criticism from black progressives like Touré and his colleague Al Sharpton. A black man who doesn’t blindly support the president and the big government programs that has created a dependency on government that has crippled America’s underclass is susceptible to name calling that, otherwise, would not be tolerated in American political discourse.

On his show, Touré said this of Carson:

“Carson is a brilliant medical thinker but he’s got intellectual tumors like a flat tax, which is regressive, and ignorant in the face of wealth inequality where the top 1% own 35% and the bottom 60% own 2.3%. I doubt Jesus would tax them equally. Just as I doubt the GOP would entertain a white non-politician with unserious ideas. But Carson has joined the GOP’s version of affirmative action, where blacks that can speak conservative game get raced to the front of the line because then people get to put a bumper sticker on their car that say, ‘How could I be racist? I would have voted for Carson!’ Which would fit nicely over the bumper sticker saying, ‘How could I be racist? I would have voted for Cain?’ Which fit nicely over the bumper sticker saying, ‘How could I be racist? I would have voted for Allen West!'”

Yes, any black friend will do, no matter how far outside the political system they emerge from and no matter how unserious their ideas are. Because it’s all make believe. None of them will ever get a nomination for the Presidency, just as the GOP will never get black votes, because the only thing they care about is winning and not the economic or social needs of black people. But in the meantime, imagine away you guys.

At CPAC Carson said, ‘Let’s say you magically put me in the White House.’ But, my brother, no magic is required to accomplish that. As soon as the sequester ends, you could take a White House tour.

Let’s be clear:  Touré holds black men up to a different (lower or higher, not sure) standard when they criticize the President.  He expects black people to think a certain way and pounces when they step out of line and express a different set of ideas than what Touré believes they should believe, due to their skin color. Because Carson is a black man, he is therefore the beneficiary of affirmitive action, in Touré’s mind, and if he dares to present an opposing view from MSNBC’s Obamadoxy, he is an Uncle Tom and betrayer of his race.

In short, Touré has a special contempt for black men who criticize President Obama.  There may be many different interpretations of the definition of racial prejudice and/or racism, but my understanding of racism is that it is the belief that humans are divided into distinct groups based upon their skin color and genetic make-up, and those groups are expected to behave and think in certain ways (inferior or superior) solely based upon their race.  Touré’s special loathing of Dr. Carson may not be based upon his race, but it certainly appears to be.  And if that doesn’t fall under the description of racism, then I would really appreciate it if Touré could explain the distinction to me, because I’m having trouble seeing it.

    Well, I don’t feel Touré’s comments are particularly racist because, even if they are, there is a truth to them that shouldn’t be overlooked. Ben Carson proposes a flat tax based on the idea of tithing, just as Cain did, but I would support neither Carson nor Cain for that proposal because, as Touré says and Carson even admits, it is a regressive tax.

    Personally, I am in favor of progressive income tax, certainly not regressive. I even feel that we should go back to the pre-Reagan marginal tax rate of 75% (or was it 90%?), because that rate was applied to people “earning” millions of dollars a year.

    Reagan’s ‘reasoning’ was that high earners were investors and thus job creators, so that leaving more money in their hands would boost investment and thus jobs. However, it took 2 years for the economy to begin its upswing under Reagan because the rich were just content to become the super-rich, raking in more money for themselves. The eighties were dubbed “The Decade of Greed” for a reason!

    This was because it is not the rich or super-rich who invest and create jobs. In fact, it is often quite the opposite: They are the big stockholders who want to get the highest dividends year after year, and hire CEOs at multi-million dollar salaries to cut costs – by layoffs and shipping jobs overseas – and thus bring in those big dividends.

    Obama wants to up the taxes on the rich and, I’m sad to say it here, but I am with him on this count. The rich are in it for themselves and nobody else.

    As for Carson, I admire the man immensely, but he should keep himself out of politics as far as I’m concerned.

    Hi Jeswezy-

    I appreciate your comments about Carson’s Tax proposal. However, the reason I am highlighting him as a topic for discussion is he is literally risking his life speaking Truth to Power to the illegitimate government the US has made as it’s new so-called New World Order and democratic home.

    How many men can you think of or name that would do as he has done? Call out the emperor, “The Emperor Has No Clothes”? We have an entirely citizen funded Congress as guilty as this misplaced emperor who haven’t the guts or the intestinal fortitude to impeach this fradulent president of the free world.

    Not when stories like this are floating around under the radar and the media refuses to acknowledge their existence or the ramifications to citizens for such a bold move by our government.

    Video: Hundreds Of DHS Armored Trucks On The Move?

    Steve Watson
    Mar 25, 2013

    Footage of hundreds of armored trucks, similar to ones reportedly purchased recently by the Department Of Homeland Security has appeared online, raising more questions over their intended use.

    The video was uploaded to YouTube last week by a user who stated that it was shot in the middle of the desert between Hackberry and Peach Springs, Arizona.

    It shows hundreds of military style trucks loaded on to a train, presumably in the process of being delivered domestically for law enforcement or military purposes.

    The video raises significant questions in the wake of reports that the Department of Homeland Security, headed by Janet Napolitano, recently purchased around 2,700 MRAP trucks that many believe are to be deployed to local law enforcement agencies around the country.

    It is clear that the DHS does have fleets of armoured vehicles intended for use in the US.

    Here is a demonstration video of such a vehicle by ICE agents:

    Does the latest video show these same type of trucks in the process of being delivered?

    The footage is the latest in a spate of similar videos to surface on the internet in recent months showing huge amounts of military equipment packed onto trains en route within the US.

    ………………………………….

    ………………………….

    As we reported today, the DHS’ mass arms build-up continues, with the report that the agency has bought another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition to add to the roughly 2 billion bullets already bought over the past year.

    Such stark activity with little to no background detail has prompted several Congressmen to ask the federal government for an explanation. According to some elected representatives, the DHS has refused to answer specific questions on the purchases, stating only that the ammunition is for “training purposes” over the next five years, and has been bulk ordered to save money.

    As we have pointed out numerous times however, military experts have noted that hollow point bullets are unsuitable for training, and are much more expensive than full metal jackets.

    Efforts by government media mouthpieces to dismiss the story have only caused it to become more viral.

    The DHS has also purchased 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, as well as cementing a $2 million dollar relationship with a contractor that recently had to apologize for producing shooting targets of pregnant women, children and elderly gun owners depicted in residential settings.

    The DHS has also been busy buying large supplies of body armor, leading to shortages. Last year, the agency put out an urgent order for “riot gear” in anticipation of civil unrest. The agency has also ordered bullet-proof checkpoint booths and hired hundreds of new security guards to protect government buildings over the course of the last 12 months. None of this has been addressed by the mainstream media.

    Dr. Ben Carson: An Unapologetic Conservative of Color Whom the Left Hates and Fears

    Kevin L. Martin

    Dr. Carson came to public prominence after his speech at the annual National Prayer Breakfast where he publically touched on his background, education and vision of what America could be, which was counter to the vision and course that President Obama has set upon over the last four years.

    The Left, for its part, has simply tried to convince Americans that Conservatives of Color like Dr. Carson simply don’t exist–and that those who do are nothing more than paid tokens of the White Conservative Establishments.

    Yet the real reason behind the Left’s hatred of Dr. Carson is that he is a self-made man whose history is not a political/media creation or rooted in some form of victimization.

    In a recent appearance on Fox’s Hannity program, leftist radio personality Leo Terrell accused host Sean Hannity of creating Dr. Carson. Terrell also labeled Dr. Carson “a monster,” going as far as to demand that Dr. Carson be censored publicly and stick to what he knows–medicine (i.e. shut up and remain in his place).

    Mr. Terrell is not the first nor will he be the last to attack Dr. Carson. The contributors over at MSNBC have made it their mission to destroy Dr. Carson, whatever it takes. They see him as a direct threat to their narrative that minorities in America only achieve success through Liberalism, and that all opposition to President Obama’s vision of America is rooted in racism–not the logic that it has been tried before and failed several times over the course of history. MSNBC Host Toure went as far as to describe Dr. Carson as “The GOP’s new Black Best Friend” for publicly pronouncing his Conservatism.

    As a Conservative of Color, I myself have often said, “Watch how quickly your Liberal counterparts will take to personal attacks”–such as those of Terrell and Toure–“when you counter their ideas on government, race and personal responsibility.” When a Liberal attacks a Conservative of Color, it only goes to show their ingrained belief that minorities in America are subservient to them, with no opinions or ideas shaped upon personal experiences–only what is popular and approved at the time.

    I believe that it is I who captain my own ship in life, and that it is not up to government to lift mine or any other boats in life but my responsibility to use the tools laid out before me to better myself in the end.

    Dr. Carson believes as I do and that is why the Left seeks to silence us and pretend we don’t exist. At the end of the day their vision of America hurts the very people that they claim they want to help.

    We will not apologize for being who and what we are: Conservatives of Color.

    From our friends at His44:

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/hillary_clinton_book_about_time_4BZxo0IYMsdytXN2FRCRVM

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has a book deal.

    She is working on a memoir and policy book about her years as secretary of state, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press. The book has yet to be titled and is tentatively scheduled for June 2014. Financial terms were not disclosed. Clinton reportedly received $8 million for the 2003 memoir, “Living History,” also published by Simon & Schuster.

    “Hillary Clinton’s extraordinary public service has given her a unique perspective on recent history and the challenges we face,” Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of the Simon & Schuster Publishing Group and the book’s editor, said in a statement Thursday. “This will be the ultimate book for people who are interested in world affairs and America’s place in the world today.”

    By launching her book tour in June 2014, Clinton will travel the country as Democrats work to recapture the House in the fall midterm elections. Her itinerary will be closely scrutinized for any signs she may run for president in 2016 — any book tour events in early voting states like Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina would receive broad attention.

    As with “Living History,” Clinton was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, who has handled deals for President Barack Obama and Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton. Karp previously served as editor for another Barnett client, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, and his memoir “True Compass.”

    Hillary Clinton, 65, stepped down as secretary of state earlier this year after serving throughout Obama’s first term. Polls indicate she would be a leading contender for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, but she has yet to announce a decision about a bid. Clinton was defeated by Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2008.

    Her book will likely be anticipated on several levels — as a possible signal of a presidential run; as the latest chronicle of one of the most eventful public lives of the past quarter-century; as the continuation of a tradition of secretary of state memoirs that includes Dean Acheson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Present at the Creation” and works by Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright and Clinton’s immediate predecessor, Condoleezza Rice.

    According to Simon & Schuster, Clinton will write about everything from the killing of Osama bin Laden and the Arab Spring to China and climate change. She “will share her views as to what it takes for the United States to secure and sustain prosperity and global leadership. Throughout, Secretary Clinton will offer vivid personal anecdotes and memories of her collaboration with President Obama and his national security team, as well as her engagement with leaders around the world.”

    Clinton, who already has started writing the book, was often praised as a hard-working and effective secretary of state. But it’s unclear whether she will cover one of the bleakest events of the past four years — the attack last fall against the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead and led to widespread criticism of security procedures and allegations by Republicans of an election-year cover-up of an act of terrorism.

    Simon & Schuster’s announcement mentions the 2011 overthrow of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, but not the Benghazi attack. The publisher did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the attack.

    The announcement also says nothing about Clinton’s 2008 presidential run, an intense and sometimes bitter campaign that led to widespread reports of animosity between Clinton and Obama.

    A person familiar with the book said that Clinton does not plan to write about the 2008 campaign or any possible future runs. The person was not authorized to speak publicly about the book and requested anonymity to discuss it.

    Clinton is a well-established author. Her “Living History” was a million-seller that was highly publicized, if only for her thoughts on her husband’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Her other books, all from Simon & Schuster and all released while she was the first lady, include her best-seller about raising children, “It Takes a Village”; “Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids’ Letters to the First Pets”; and “An Invitation to the White House: At Home With History.”

    “Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has a book deal.”

    ——
    She has Barry and his thugs shaking in their boots that she will spill the beans…

    She will at least leave bread crumbs, unless they really are threatening her…and then – they had better take cover.
    ……………

    The time is right for the only person with the expertise and intestinal fortitude, that person being Hillary Clinton, to straighten out the mess Obama has made of this country. We stand shoulder to shoulder with Hillary to assist her in every way possible to make it all happen for 2016.

    Ben Carson steps down as Hopkins commencement speaker

    Ben

    Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson stepped down Wednesday as commencement speaker at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine after complaints from students about controversial comments concerning same-sex marriage.

    The withdrawal came less than a week after medical school Dean Paul B. Rothman chastised Carson for his comments and met with graduating students concerned that the famed physician was an inappropriate commencement speaker.

    Carson sent Rothman a letter saying that he didn’t want to “distract from the celebratory nature of the day.”

    Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law mulls Hill bid

    Mezvinsky

    By BREANNA EDWARDS, POLITICO – Former Democratic U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky is considering a run to reclaim her old seat in Pennsylvania’s 13th Congressional district and this time she has a hefty political hand to play.

    Margolies-Mezvinsky, if she decides to run, can probably count on the heavy political swing that comes with the Clinton family name, as her son Marc married Chelsea Clinton in 2010.

    According to KYW Newsradio, which is based in Philadelphia, she has the support of major party leaders and is being encouraged to run by former President Bill Clinton.

    “It is premature, because we have a Congressperson in office now, but it is true that I am talking about it with party leaders and family members,” Margolies-Mezvinsky told the station.

    Democratic Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who earlier announced late last month her bid for Governor, is currently occupying the 13th Congressional district seat.

    Bill Clinton: ‘America will have some very good choices for president’

    President Bill Clinton: ‘I think America will have some very good choices for president’
    Former President Bill Clinton may have stoked more speculation about his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and her potential run for president.

    Asked during a Q-and-A session on Saturday if he’d rather take eight more years as president or complete 16 projects at the Clinton Global Initiative, Clinton said – after a pause – “I would rather keep doing what I’m doing.”

    “Because I think America will have some very good choices for president,” he continued, drawing applause from the audience as they presumably clapped and cheered for his wife.

    I’m so sorry I have been unable to be as close to this blog as I have in the past… family events have taken precedent over most of what I considered a normal day for me… However, I felt compelled to eek out some time for responding to the heinous events happening in Boston sending my prayers and condolences to the friends and families affected by the brainwashed, Chechen, Tsarnaev brothers.

    It’s been a harrowing week since Patriot’s Day when we suffered a personal indescribable heartache of the needless slaughter of runners at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Our brothers and sisters will never forget that day, how can they? Their maiming and scars will be with them forever as well as in our minds and memories for the rest of our lives…

    I want to commend Admin @ Hillaryis44.org for devoting many hours to keeping the Pink body informed with the latest updates of the happenings on the Manhunt for the killer and the post mortem obit on his dead brother committing this atrocity.. The now defunct poster boys representing Islam and the teachings of the Muslim Brotherhood have come to fruition in eternal infamy on our home turf demonstrating their message, their hatred for the West, as an all inclusive malignant cancer spread to every corner of the world…

    A review of the series of events leading up to the death and capture of the Radical influenced Muslim Chechecnian brothers is here: I hope some good can come out of this using the tragedy of these brothers as an example to others influenced by the brainwashing of this inhumane Muslim philosophy. Americans will not tolerate it..Never-
