Whoopi Tries To Grill Ben Carson. Gets Schooled Instead...
Dr. Ben Carson - who is now leading Donald Trump in some polls - went on The View this morning. And it was... amazing.
Right out the gate, they ask him if he ever raises his voice. So he schools them on what bridled strength is. We can dig it.
Then, they accuse him of being politically incorrect. So he schools them on "media spin." We can dig it.
Next comes my favorite part. Whoopie Goldberg asks Dr. Carson to address his recent comments relating to Hitler, whether we should have a Muslim as President, and having a Confederate flag on private property. So he schools them all. We can dig it. Take a look:
"I can explain all of those quite easily."
"What I was saying about the Hitler comment - I purposefully said that because I knew the leftwing would go crazy... 'HE SAID HITLER!'"
First off, that right there is hilarious. Dr. Carson's right and crazy is exactly what happened. Not wanting to appear to be that crazy, Whoopie tells Carson that what he says he said isn't actually what he said (amazing how's she's omnipotent like that), and to explain further.
"Most of the people in Nazi Germany did not believe in what Hitler was doing. But did they speak up? No. They kept their mouths shut. And when you do that, you are compromising your freedom and the freedom of people who come behind you. You have to be willing to stand up for what you believe in... (Hitler was) an evil man."
To which Whoopie retorted, "There were people standing up to him."
"Not enough," replied Carson. And how did Whoopie respond?
"There might not have been enough."
There MIGHT not have been enough, Ms. Goldberg?
Ummm, okay. Perhaps a visit to Auschwitz could help clear up Whoopie's "might" here. There were nowhere near enough Germans who stood up to Hitler. Not even close. If they had, the Holocaust might not have happened. 30,000,000 innocent human beings might not have been killed.
I get what Whoopie was trying to say, but for someone who sits on a panel that makes their living by parsing people's words, you'd think she'd come a little more prepared when trying to corner a brain surgeon.
Dr. Carson finished the segment with a bang:
"I want people in America to be willing to stand up for what they believe in."
Finally! Somebody that has the guts to say it. Leftists, feminists, they win because we let them. We sit on the sidelines and bemoan the direction of our country, but very few people actually have the balls to do anything about it. Which is why it's so ironic that Ben "Sloth on Xanax" himself is the one who seems willing enough to grow a pair and wade right into the firefight. Albeit very calmly.
Dr. Carson's issued a challenge here. Stop screwing about and be a person of conviction. There's a novel idea.
Carson's right. Some people see it as grandstanding but of course Hitler could happen here. Hitler could happen anywhere.
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmond Burke.
Well, at least Ben Carson's doing something. Even if he does so with a soft voice and a calm demeanor. Regardless, we can dig it.
