Dr. Benjamin Carson made a comment on the Mark Levin radio show Monday guaranteed to invoke scorn from media members across the fruited plain.
When Levin asked, "A lot of white liberals just don't like it, do they," Carson responded, "Theyíre the most racist people there are because, 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?"
MARK LEVIN, HOST: These attacks on you, I have to ask you. Youíre a religious man. Do these attacks make you want to speak out more and do more or do they cause you to second guess coming out and talking like this?
DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: No, they make me recognize what serious trouble weíre in. And what has really brought it home to me is, you know, Iíve gotten so many letters of support or phone calls or emails from people who believe similarly, but are afraid to speak out because they think there may be retribution. And basically, it proves what I was saying at the National Prayer Breakfast that political correctness is threatening to destroy our nation because it puts a muzzle over honest conversation, and the fabric of our nation is changed without the benefit of a conversation.
LEVIN: Well, you're right. They don't want a conversation, do they? They don't want us to engage. In fact theyÖ
CARSON: No, they want to shut us up completely.
CARSON: And that's why the attacks against me have been so vicious because I represent, you know, an existential threat to them. They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me. They can't find anything else to delegitimize me. So they take my words, misinterpret them, and try to make it seem that I'm a bigot.
LEVIN: And you're attacked also, in many respects, because of your race, because you're not supposed to think like this and talk like this. A lot of white liberals just don't like it, do they?
CARSON: Well, you know, theyíre the most racist people there are because, 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?
LEVIN: Now, youíve been on networks like MSNBC. I mean, thatís not really a news network. Thatís just a bunch of, a bunch of leftist hosts who dress up as phony reporters and attack guests they donít like and so forth. Is that something youíre going to continue to do? You think taking your case, are you thinking taking your case to those places is worthwhile?
CARSON: Well, you know, Iím not afraid of any of them because, you know, for me itís very easy. All I have to do is tell the truth. You know, I donít have a particular agenda that Iím pushing. So, itís going to be pretty difficult for them to trip me up. Iím going to just tell the truth, and Iíll tell the truth wherever I go on a liberal media or on a conservative media.
