CPAC superstar Ben Carson talks about ‘nastygrams’ calling him the N-word after he criticized Obama; Update: Video added

After Dr. Ben Carson criticized Obamacare during a rip-roaring speech at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, he says he received “nastygrams” laced with racial epithets.

Are you wearing your shocked face?

Democratic strategist Greg Pinelo called for a fact-check.

Evidently he doesn’t spend much time on Twitter.

Carson asked when we reached the point that philosophy is supposed to be tied to skin color.

The crowd went wild with cheers when Carson hinted at a possible presidential run.

Dr. Carson also delivered a one-liner the audience loved:

So about those hints at a presidential run …


How predictable are Carson’s detractors? This predictable:

Tolerance brigade calls Ben Carson ‘token,’ ‘Uncle Tom’ and ‘Oreo’ after CPAC speech

    Dr. Carson was fantastic, as expected. But don’t miss Eric Metaxas, who was introduced with him, and spoke first. Metaxas began with a couple of lame jokes, then launched into one of the best defenses of religious freedom I’ve ever heard. Outstanding!

    • Patrick Dennehy

      I saw the last half of Metaxas’ speech, I had never heard him before, I liked what he had to say. His jokes are really lame though, huh? They continued into his ‘interview’ with Carson.

      Carson was amazing as usual, he totally speaks to me. Everything I know to be true he vocalizes in a succinct and intelligent manner. I think he is going to make a run at the WH. Please Lord, I pray that you give people the cognition to vote for this man; he can fix this mess. I truly believe that.

  • b_truit

    I’d vote for him. Shown more conviction and integrity in the month he’s been on TV than numb nuts ever could dream about.

    Edit: Dr. Carson needs to be placed on a ticket or in a administration position. His interview with Glenn beck showed he is awesome but not perfect. He’s wishy washy on the 2nd amendment. Thinks local governents should be able to keep semi autos out of populated areas…better than our leader is now, at least Dr. Carson would leave it to local gov but still not thrilled. If he would not try to ban anything on that subject I would consider him.

    • Squirrel!

      And that’s why he’s a threat & needs to be taken down by the left! They’ll work hard at it too!

      • rennyangel2

        Soon three former Chicago middle-aged chicks wiil show up and say when he made a speech there 30 years ago,, he looked at them crosseyed, a la the treatment of Herman Cain.

        • michael s

          Where were his fellow running mates to defend him, while this was happening?

          • b_truit


          • rennyangel2

            Cain didn’t have “running mates.” He was in a primary running AGAINST other candidates. Maybe you forgot already.

            The point of my post is that whenever a black cons. emerges, the first thing the left does is pillory him/her (Condi Rice is a “Mammy”–showing that the left is deaf and dumb and also blind) in any ways it can–with Cain it was ancient allegations of unspecified harassment, which just all happened to be from the thug-center of Chicago and alluding to possible actions decades before in a narrow two-year period, the only time Cain was ever in Chicago.

  • The Left Is Evil

    I don’t want to even imagine, the Evil Left throwing at him nasty racial epithets if We The People, elect this great man…Just because he is a Conservative…God Bless Him…

    • Max

      Somehow I don’t think racial epithets will even be noticed by Dr Carson. His knowledge of WHO HE IS will deflect all Leftist arrows. Go Ben

  • Maxx

    There can be no greater defining characteristic of liberal prejudice than their growing predictability which comes from calling all black conservatives the “N” word.

    The left have become nothing but political plantation owners who feel they own the black vote and when people like Dr. Ben Carson and Stacey Dash break free from those shackles of liberal servitude to express conservative thought, these independent thinkers are treated like runaway slaves from ugly days gone by.

    Liberals who insult Blacks for voicing their conservatism have become no less disgusting and ugly than the racism they purport to denounce.

    • Squirrel!

      Let them keep at it. The more they do such things, the more eyes will be opened. This only diminishes the liberals. It certainly doesn’t diminish Dr. Carson in any way.

      • Elaine

        Like Allen West said, conservative blacks are the progressives’ worst nightmare.

      After all this time we are still the abolitionists and the dem. kkk just digs deeper undercover to hide who they really are – same mindsets different times.

  • Squirrel!

    Using such slurs only reflects the ignorance of the one(s) who says it. I LOVE Dr. Carson! He is so eloquent & makes so much sense!

  • Bryan

    Since the liberals think they all look the same, maybe he could “magically” be the President just by showing up.

    • Max

      That won’t work as Obama is partially black, and Dr Carson is ALL BLACK. Carson is a long-awaited breath of fresh air. I cast my vote for him right now.

    Thank you for telling the TRUTH Dr. Carson!!! I’m sure Dr. King would be proud as well!

  • wwbdinct

    Well – these twitter reactions to Dr. Carson will be NOTHING compared to what happens after Palin speaks! Should be interesting to see if they can top the hatred that they already have.

    • Canadian in USA

      As, yes…as always, they are the most intolerant “tolerant” people.

      Bless their little bleeding hearts!

  • rennyangel2

    Liberals along with learning how to be the most embracing and inclusive people in the world somehow learned all the pejoratives for those that don’t subscribe to the monolithic “liberal” party line”: the n-word is a favorite followed not to far behind by the c-word for any female not willing to bow at the waist for some lib, guy standing behind her and the m-f word is a pretty close third for anyone, esp. a person of color, who does not want to spend his/her life eslaved to lefty campus doctine which runs something like:”All white people, are racists.”

    • Canadian in USA

      The complete mental disassociation of the liberal way of thinking is astounding. They try to convince you that their way is the “right way”, call you all sorts of names and say all sorts of nasty things if you don’t agree (as if THAT is going to convince you otherwise), and then if you do agree, they question your motives and say you’re not being genuine. It’s amazing, when you chat with liberal thinkers, that their arguments and positions are rooted more in emotion and ideology than anything else.

      ..and they call US the unsettled and stubborn ones.

      • mdtljt

        …and to that point…I was in a novelty store earlier today with my 8 yo. daughter & her 10yo. friend, surrounded by other children. There was a bumper sticker for sale that said,”Tea Party is a nice way to say A Group of Racists & Homophobes” Apparently the lib/progs have very magic mirrors that show them everything but who they really are when they gaze upon their condescending, pompous faces…wonder if I could get one that instantly melts 15 lbs off my body…in my own mind…hell, I’d rather be a bit better upholstered than be a lib/prog…any day & twice on Sunday!!!

  • michael s

    If he runs I’ll support him,especially over the savior Rubio. I’m not surprised at racial slurs being hurled at him. He’s black unfortunately this is what blacks from Pres Obama sec of states Powell Rice, Sen Scott Buress Cowan and all of us go through.

    • TexSizzle

      Did you support Clarence Thomas, Allen West, Mia Love, or Herman Cain?

      • Raye09

        Most of the people hurling the slurs are black. How do you feel about that? Or are you still convinced it’s coming exclusively from non-blacks?

        • TexSizzle

          Why is this a response to me? I never indicated in any way that I believe otherwise.And my comment was to a leftist black.

  • Sherri Seiber

    I really like Dr. Ben Carson

  • Ben Bollman

    Wow Greg Pinelo and McKay Coppins are doing more fact checking on the words of a non-politician surgeon than they have the whole first term of Obama.

    • seek456

      Sad truth. Truly sad. They are still busy spinning the “how dare they ask about Benghazi” cover up.

      • Ben Bollman

        fake outrage is all they got.

  • ThorOdinson

    Ben Carson as President? Not possible. The Presidency is an Entry-Level Position, as Obama has proven. Carson is grossly overqualified.

  • Adela Wagner

    Flat out cannot please a liberal. So SCREW ’em. Their world is already so upside down,
    that everything looks skewed to them, and all they CAN do is try to
    use… whatever.. to their favor. That’s what happens when your world is
    devoid of facts and truth. Acting like Conservatives tied Ben Carson up
    and hijacked him into the fold, all the while IGNORING the FACT that
    this guy is a PROMINENT neurosurgeon, in FACT the Director of
    Neurosurgery at John Hopkins, yet saying he does not have the brains to figure out his own political views is at best, utterly ridiculous. I am so open minded that I’m sure some of my brains have leaked out, but I do know that Conservatives don’t want to lie, rewrite history or give away presents to try to get people to vote with them or even like them, we just want people to wake up and smell the BS coming from Unicorns pooping magic.

  • Garth Haycock

    I hope this Greg Pinelo also demanded that Nancy Pelosi provided proof that the racial epithets were hurled at the Marxists who forced Obamacare down our throats. Last I heard, there was still an unclaimed $100K for proof that it happened.

  • Chip

    Amajority of blacks drank the kool aid and don’t realize that
    Obama is the lead overseer on their “Poverty Plantation.” What they
    need to be asking themselves is not “How can a black man be a
    Republican?” but “Why are there so many RICH white people trying to act
    like Democrats?” Follow the money. Certainly, it’s not the “poor
    black man” that’s profiting from the poverty industry.

    Carson: Obama Trying to ‘Destroy the Country’

    “Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation,” Carson postulated in remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”

    At the National Prayer Breakfast in February, Carson — with President Obama as a captive audience — lodged a full-frontal assault on the president’s agenda, from progressive taxation to Obamacare.

    Dr. Ben Carson, who Lectures Pres. Obama, Addresses CPAC 2013

  • Bteri

    That speech was awesome! Ben Carson has an unbelievable gift for taking the biggest issues of the day and describing the current Washington DC political constipation or Washington DC political gluttony and corruption and contrasting it with his own detailed common sense solutions.

    I just spent a bit of time reading the forums from left leaning websites that posted Caron’s speech — Its hysterical— they are freaking out — they know just how valuable Ben Carson will be to conservatives – and just how damning he will be to counter Barack Obama – to counter the progressive message – especially when it comes to messaging to poor minorities given Carsons background of poverty. This has been a foundation of the left for decades that has not been questioned – EVER – But the possibilities are there now. This is going to be fun.

  • Maliheh Banoo

    no evidence liberals called carson the n word ,i did see some calling him an uncle tom but not n-word …stop making it up malkin

    • blockthiscnn

      You must have missed the hundreds of other tweets where other black conservatives were called a “house nigger” or similar. Not a stretch to note there were some here as well.

  • Observant_One

    Dr. Carson, do not allow white trash or black trash liberals deter you from your appointed rounds.

    • jimshaw54

      Dr. Carson is too settled in who he is to be detered by liberals. He will just outthink them and go merrily on his own way.
