African-American conservative Dr. Ben Carson told radio host Mark Levin on Monday that white liberals are “the most racist people there are” and want to keep him from leaving “the plantation” (audio below).
Dr. Carson blamed white liberals for quoting his controversial comments, which compared same sex marriage to bestiality and child molestation, reports Mediaiite.com.
On March 26, Dr. Carson said that he believes marriage is ”a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality. It doesn’t matter what they are. They don’t get to change the definition," reported MediaMatters.org (video below).
NAMBLA is an organization that advocates child-adult sex.
“They want to shut us up completely,” Dr. Carson claimed on Monday. “I represent an existential threat to them. They need to shut me up, they need to delegitimize me.”
“And you’re attacked in many respects because of your race. Because you’re not supposed to think like this, and supposed to talk like this. A lot of white liberals just don’t like it, do they?” Levin asked.
“Well, they’re the most racist people there are,” Dr. Carson replied. “You know, they put you in a little category, a little box. You have to think this way. How could you dare come off the plantation?”
Students at Johns Hopkins Medical School recently protested Dr. Carson as their future Commencement speaker. Dr. Carson claims his statements were misinterpreted, but said he is prepared to withdraw.
So far, Johns Hopkins has said that it has no plans to disinvite Dr. Carson, and that he was chosen on the merit of his accomplishments.
