Liberals are screaming.
Dr. Ben Carson has been politically incorrect with recent remarks like these:
“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”
“We don’t put people at the head of our country whose faith might interfere with them carrying out the duties of the Constitution. If you’re a Christian and you’re running for president and you want to make this [country] into a theocracy, I’m not going to support you. I’m not going to advocate you being the president.”
“Now, if someone has a Muslim background, and they’re willing to reject those tenets and to accept the way of life that we have, and clearly will swear to place our Constitution above their religion, then of course they will be considered infidels and heretics, but at least I would then be quite willing to support them.”
Dr. Carson did not suggest that the Constitution would deny a Muslim an opportunity to run for any public office. But his words have been twisted by the Left into a racist rant, which they were not.
Who in their right mind would want a Muslim in the White House? In light of consistent statements and actions made by domestic and international Muslims, only a liberal could be excited about such a prospect.
