The greatest value of political exploitation is playing on the sheer ignorance of your masses...no matter whether it's FoxNews, Ben Carson, Trump, Fiorina, or any of the real Politicos currently in media-induced comatose states...it's the potential for bringing into reason, a man's worst fears and their natural bigotry!!
Whether it's Women, Gays, Ethnicity, Immigration, or Religion...trying to bring into reason why we one person 'must' hate another?...is not how to bring a country together, folks!
Politically, it's a lousy tactic for someone claiming to be a good Christian with values!...unless it's all meant to instigate serious confrontations. And in that case, yes! they're succeeding very well!
Enter into this picture Ben "Macho Man" Carson, hypocrite extraordinaire whose only reason for appearing is as this year's Republican Token Pizza Man version 2.0. Also, the fact that he's a famously brilliant Medical groundbreaking Neurosurgeon, Researcher, a Medical School professor at Johns Hopkins...and primarily a Black Republican...who made millions in Medical Science, and now talks to his minions about the non-existence of Science! Ahhyup! whatever it takes to get those votes! right Doc?
Ben Carson is a very big believer on how to be a tough guy, with a "don't take shit from anybody" attitude in life. "A mob of people rushing a gunned man will stop the problem!...yea, some may die, but not everyone!"...not everyone?!?! certainly, for sure not Dr. Ben!
Very sure! after how he described being held up by a gunman at Popeye's, and how 'Mr. Macho' bravely defended himself; "Hey! you don't want me, pal...you want the guy behind the counter at the cash register"!! WOW!...WOW! WOW! What a man!! What bravery!!
Forget all the Uncle Tom or Uncle Ben remarks about him, and all his hypocrisy about Science & Religion...look at the natural character of this phony hero of a man, who'll tell his flock to follow him into battle, then tell the enemy; You don't want me, I'm just a schmuck...you want all those right behind me! Yup! the bravery of a true human coward...throw the rock, and run the other way sort guy!
On the Roseburg, Oregon shootings his remarks on stopping shooters by having a gang of people rush them...even if a few die in the effort...was an extremely stupid arrogant remark. But using the same analogy while describing the Holocaust...that if the Jews would have all attacked the Nazis, their SS and the Gestapo, of whom most of them at the time before the Ovens came into play, couldn't care less who they killed, the Holocaust wouldn't have happened? Realllly?!?!
Now, the Right Wing horseshit that the Holocaust wouldn’t have happened if the Jews had an armed resistance?...it was gonna happen because the hate and the indifference by the "Gentile" population in the Deutschland at that time...who very well knew what was happening, but because of either fear or just plain apathy, didn't do shit to help their fellow man...even if they were Jews! "Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out...because I was not a Jew". An Armed Resistance in Nazi Germany at that time in History? Life is not always all Black or White, Benny!
Well! apparently the good Doctor missed History the day it was taught in school...his German studies and understanding about Jewish and Eastern European culture are as ignorantly flawed, as his own personal understanding of the Black Man. And FoxNews couldn't be any happier!...the propaganda of Demonizing and Dehumanizing of your enemy...whether they're Blacks, Gays, Women, Latinos, the Poor, and all Religions other than White Evangelical Christians. Now, this fine man of so much Moral Values, also believes the morality of Mob Rule and Gun Violence...as long as it's not him in the front!...he's just the official stone thrower.
On his comments of America being a "Christian" Nation under God: “the pledge of allegiance to our flag says we are ‘one nation, under God'; many courtrooms in the land on the wall it says ‘In God We Trust’; every coin in our pocket, every bill in our wallet says ‘In God We Trust.’ but we’re not supposed to talk about it...what in the world is that? In medicine it’s called schizophrenia...and I, for one, am simply not willing to kick "God" to the curb.”
To the man who missed history the day it was taught in school: “In God We Trust” was adopted in 1956 as part of an Anti-Communist political campaign to differentiate the United States from the secular ideology of the Soviet Union. Like the Confederate Flag that went up in the 50s as a symbol of protest against the Civil Rights Movement..."God" has nothing to do with how "Christian" this Nation is. Besides, in "One Nation under God"...whose "God" were they talking about?
1) "The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded by Christian Religion" ~~ John Adams
2) "Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law" ~~ Thomas Jefferson
For those who love using all the Patriotic Rhetoric of our Forefathers: Sit on those 2 thoughts, reflect, and contemplate your stupidity as you continue to listen today's Conservative & Christian horseshit from all these "Godly" pieces of trash, that call themselves elected Civil Servants. Yes! exploiting ignorance by arousing fear and hate works well...look at how popular it is now days to be a Hypocrite, a Liar, a Coward, and a Clown? Ben Carson is now at #2...just behind Donald Trump! Who says the GOP doesn't have 'Character' anymore?...just look at these 2 Characters!!
