Ben Carson - Oh, the Irony!!!!

Ben Cason isn't likely to ever be president of anything - much less the United States. And yet I couldn't help but point out the incredible irony he threw out there recently.

Cason published an article in the Jerusalem Post that basically parrots all the Republican talking points against the Iran nuclear deal. But my jaw dropped when I got to this little tidbit about President Obama's speech at American University last week:
Shockingly, his [Obama's] diatribe also was replete with coded innuendos employing standard anti-Semitic themes involving implied disloyalty and nefarious influences related to money and power.
This...from the guy who is basically running on a platform AGAINST political correctness. When people challenge his comparison of the United States to Nazi Germany, Carson says we're demanding political correctness. Same thing happens when he compares Obamacare to slavery or ISIS to the founding fathers.

But he accuses President Obama of "coded innuendos" that smack of anti-Semitism? Really?!!!!!

When stuff like this happens, it can be hard to know whether someone like Carson is so emotionally unintelligent that he can't see his own hypocrisy, or is simply a bald-faced chronic liar. I always try to give people the benefit of the doubt. So I lean towards the former - which still doesn't speak very well of this candidate.

  1. There may be a third explanation -- Ben Carson is out of his mind.

    1. Oops. Forgot about that one. But it is a very real possibility.

  2. As John Dolan once said: "As so often in assessing post-Reagan culture, you're left to wonder whether you're dealing with stupidity, lies, or some horribly adaptive mixture of both."
