Dr. Ben Carson isn’t the first black or minority person with conservative values to be targeted for destruction and he probably won’t be the last. The practice of targeting those who threaten to shake up the solidarity of minority Democrat voting pools began to get ugly during the Clarence Thomas hearings. Ugly depictions of conservative republicans like former Secretary of State Condi Rice and Michael Steele go unchallenged except by conservatives black and white. In a nation in which accusations of racism has practically become a cottage industry this seems outrageous. And yet the left continues to get away with targeting black conservatives like Dr. Carson.
Sean Hannity explored this issue on his television program (scroll down for video) where leftist attorney Leo Terrel insisted that Dr. Carson was a doctor and therefore lacked the credentials to speak about politics and as a community activist he had the “credentials” to express a political opinion. He later accused Niger Innis, national from the Congress of Racial Equality of being an apologist for FOX. Innis, a black conservative, responded he would be happy to go on other networks but their “censorship” against conservative black commentators prevents it.
Are conservatives denied free speech. No they are free to speak if they are courageous enough, and their families are courageous enough, to stand up to bullies on the left who can’t abide differing points of view, particularly when they are expressed by blacks men and women. They haven’t been averse to
targeting oriental conservatives for expressing opinions either, whether the subject be political or social!
The Human events article has an excellent point:
…it’s a demonstration of how the actual meaning of terms like “racist,” “sexist,” and “hater” has been bleached away by the Left, until its more slow-witted followers merely scream the words as generic curses devoid of intrinsic meaning. If you’re someone they don’t like, you’re guilty of racism, sexism, and hatred… and they see nothing incongruous about flinging accusations of hatred, crude ethnic slurs, and even threats of rape at a woman they have re-classified into a non-person.
I couldn’t have said it better. It is long past time to expose the lefts intolerant and ugly activism to control all thought and expression in this country and I am happy to join those who support free speech for everyone!
