Dr. Ben Carson fought back against the progressives and the liberal media who have been twisting his words. Speaking to a full crowd at CPAC 2014 Saturday afternoon, Carson spoke about the need for small government, but warned that the tactics of progressives come straight out of Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals." They are not trying to have a conversation with you, he said, because that will humanize you. Their ultimate goal is to demonize you:
Now, as you know, I am not a fan of political correctness. I hate political correctness. I will continue to defy the PC police who have tried in many cases to shut me up. I actually find them pretty amusing. I mean, I still believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. You know, because I happen to mention that nobody gets to change the definition of marriage and mention some other categories, they said Carson said that gay marriage and bestiality are the same thing. That Is preposterous. Of course they are not the same thing. Anybody who believes that is a dummy, but anybody who believes somebody who says that somebody said that is a dummy. That is the problem, OK? Of course gay people should have the same rights as everyone else, but they don't get extra rights. They do not get to redefine marriage. And then I said that Obamacare was the worst thing since slavery. Now, let me tell you why I said that. Of course they said Carson said that slavery and Obamacare are the same thing. Of course they are not the same thing. Slavery is much worse, but to bear in mind what happens with Obamacare. (...)
And then recently, I said that in Nazi Germany, people do not believe in what Hitler was doing. Most of them did not. But did they speak up? Did they say anything? Absolutely not, and look at the atrocities that occurred. And of course the left said, Carson says that they are changing American to Nazi Germany. Of course that is not the case, but that is what they do. They repeat these lies over and over again because they cannot argue the actual facts. I do not want to talk about the real issues. And it is important for the American people to understand the tactics of these people who simply sit around and try to demonize people, come straight out of the book, 'Rules for Radicals,' by Saul Alinsky. He says never have a conversation with your adversary because that will humanize them and your job is to demonize them. That is why you see that all over. Intelligent people will understand that.
