You can always tell when liberal talking heads are getting desperate: They’ll pick a sentence or image out of context, blow it out of proportion, then cover up or mock any attempts to set the record straight.
A great example is that is the “Mission Accomplished” banner behind President George W. Bush on an aircraft carrier returning from Iraq in 2003. Even the Wikipedia entry on his speech explains that the banner was put up by the crew to celebrate the end of their deployment, not as a verdict on the war. But so what? The left has never stopped harping on it.
So while it came as a bit of a relief when the mainstream media and progressive bloggers temporarily shifted their attention from Melania Trump’s GOP convention speech to the one delivered by Dr. Ben Carson, we had to know they’d be up to their old tricks.
The Left have been making a big deal out of Carson’s reference to “Lucifer” to reinforce their stereotype of conservatives as religious fanatics. However, they’ve conveniently left out the context of his remarks. Here’s what Carson said:
“One of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors, was Saul Alinsky. Her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky. This was someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently. Now, interestingly enough, let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky. He wrote a book called “Rules For Radicals”. On the dedication page, it acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom. Now think about that. This is a nation where our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator. This is a nation where our Pledge of Allegiance says we are “one nation, under God”. This is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says “In God We Trust”. So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer? Think about that.”
So what’s the problem? Every word of this is true. That sinister Alinsky connection is something millions of American conservatives are all too familiar with. Will the media’s latest witch hunt against Carson backfire when people see for themselves what all the fuss was about and start to wonder if the good doctor might be onto something?
