Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson argued, “the left wing does have does have standard practice for black people, and you’re not supposed to wander away from that” on Monday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.
Carson said progressives are annoyed with him because “I simply won’t submit to their nonsense, and do things the way that they think they should be done, and I will not talk the way that they think I should talk, and embrace the ideals that they think should be embraced. How dare someone like me actually think for themselves?”
When asked if he thought race was a factor, Carson answered, “in the sense that the left wing does have does have standard practice for black people, and you’re not supposed to wander away from that, or you’re an Uncle Tom, you’re traitor, you’re all kinds of names that they call you. I find it rather amusing, and I think a lot of Americans find it rather amusing too. They know they’re going to do this. People have been saying this for months, they’re going to come after you with everything they can possibly can. They’re going to be digging through everything. They’re try to reinterpret everything. We know — they’re like a fly that’s been sprayed by Raid, you know, and they’re back spinning around. They’re desperate. But it’s okay because we’re just going to keep on with the truth.”
