On Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday, retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson sounded off on the knee-jerk reactions from President Barack Obama and his allies that any opposition to their policies is rooted various forms of bigotry.
Carson said he believed that eventually people will realize they’re being manipulated.
“I think they actually can do it if they realize that they’re being manipulated,” Carson said. “The fact of the matter is, you are going to have deep clashes with the two categories of people that I just described and to ascribe those clashes so something as superficial as race means that you are obviously not investing much in the way of analysis. Overall big problem that’s going on in our nation. You can’t oppose anything that a progressive black person is doing if you are white without being called a racist. You can’t oppose abortion on demand without being called anti-woman. You can’t uphold traditional marriage without being called homophobic. You know, this is really a state of sadness, immaturity and I think the solution to it is for the people to become much more sophisticated in their analysis and not simply accept what the manipulators are trying to pull over.”
