Boom. A simple key point from Dr. Ben Carson. Can we get an “Amen”? Or several:

And the triple:

Dr. Carson’s tweet has been retweeted over 400 times and counting.

Speaking of character:

Truth. Also truth, only not in the good way?

Yep. Who are the racists again? Hint: They are the ones trade in identity politics and who focus solely on color, not character.

    A lesson that Stompy has yet to learn, as evidenced by his whining about how all the mean “typical white people” don’t like him because apparently after 5 years of his malicious ineptitude destroying the country, they just discovered he’s black.

    Ben Carson is worth a billion Stompys. Preach on, Doctor!

    • Al’s Not So Sad Grampa

      I don’t know if Dr. Carson = 1 billion Dear Leaders. In comparison, the value of Dr. Carson cannot be measured, as Dear Leader is worthless. Perhaps this equation will help explain what I’m saying:

      immeasurable value (Carson) > absolute worthlessness (Obama)

    How sad that we have a black president who has no interest at all in the black community. He could have had some serious discussions with black teens about education, about creating a safe neighborhood for each other. Not just one speech, but constant reminders that America has a lot to offer if only they sought the honorable road to success.

  • JPeden

    Wha’…judge a person by the content of their character? “Progressives” simply don’t know how to do that! For them it’s all about externals, attributes, accoutrements, statistics, anything they can think up or glom onto, but especially about making the correct noises…because they certainly have no idea what they are talking about. Truth be told, “Progressives” have no character, no innate capacity for individual rationality. That’s why they hate and fear the U.S. Constitution and US….and why they lust for a Totalitarian Government with Charismatic Leaders to care for them and tell them, and everyone else who’s left, what to do.

      Obama leads the dissadvanteged closer to their destruction by affirming a lifestyle of violence, unemployment, and ignorance; this includes black, Hispanic and white. Blacks are disproportionately hurt because there’s a level of trust that isn’t universally shared among whites. the longer he promises their day will arrive the more they become complacent and at the mercy of big government. truth is, the disadvantaged either got off the bus if they were ever on it or that bus never visited their community. start walking and seeking your own solutions. open your eyes to see your not alone and help is available but you have to go to it. salvation will never reach you if you do as the liberals want; remain buried in hate, ignorance and unemployment

    Obama Says Racial Animus Blunts Approval, New Yorker Reports
    “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition.

    “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president,” Obama said in his most direct comments on how race has affected his political standing since he’s been in office.

    Obama confirms he’s a Racist.

          Maybe, but it is the truth.

          • May or may not be Penguin

            Yet you stated the reason for your distaste of Dr. Carson’s tweet was based on his being divisive. Keep throwing those rocks from your glass house there who.

            I find your reply puzzling. If, by telling Crystallite that she wouldn’t believe Margret Sanger if she came back from the dead and spoke the very same words to her that she’s quoted as saying when she founded what became Planned Parenthood, you’re not being clear. Did Margret Sanger utter &/or pen those words when she was alive? With out a doubt. Could she “Rise from the dead”? Only if she’s the Messiah.

  • H50 ✓RAT

    Dr. Carson also tweeted; We should never expect or predict a person’s point-of-view based upon their race as that is truly the definition of racism.

    It is appalling how the progs have twisted and degraded the Rev. Dr. Kings message.

  • David

    Good message, but will the base (conservative white males) take this to heart? I checked the GOP facebook and noticed that over half of the responses on the MLK tribute post referred to king as a communist, while others suggested celebrating Robert E Lee day instead of MLK day. Odd that such a supposed loved figure by white conservative males would be treated in such a way by conservative white males.

    • H50 ✓RAT

      I wonder the age ranges of these men you speak of? These days kids are not being taught the true message of MLK and they haven’t been in a very long time.
      Was having a discussion with one of the neighborhood kids who was about to graduate high school and MLK being a communist came up. He pretty much asserted it was true, because thats what his detractors said he was and that he had “communist ties.” That is what he was taught in school.

      We had a very long conversation about the truth of MLKs life and message. He was astounded.
      The problem is that in progs changing the message, you cannot honor the man bringing the message. It doesn’t track.

      I would guess the REL day crap is as a result of resentment and pot stirring.
      Either point of view is very sad to me, it means that MLK died in vain. We have to keep the truth of the man front and center. He wasn’t a saint, but he was a man with a vision that was a benefit to society as a whole.

    • Arkuy The Great

      Whoa, wait…I am having trouble keeping up. First MLK Jr. was a card-carrying Republican. Now he is a Communist. Tomorrow what will be be? A full-on, goose-stepping NSDAP HJ or a spliff-toking member of the Just-Chill-Out-And-Relax party?

      • MyronJPoltroonian

        Hey, it was the Kennedy’s, Jack and Robert, who accused him of being a communist. After all, a democrat president and attorney general couldn’t be wrong, could they?
