Ben Carson comforts conservatives: I will only police liberal speech on college campuses

Published

on

Ben Carson seems to think only liberals can hold “extreme” political views.

The Republican presidential candidate, who claims “the power of God” is behind his campaign but believes Muslims are too religious to serve as president, said he would task the Department of Education with monitoring and punishing examples of “extreme political bias” at colleges and universities.

Carson explained his sketched-out policy proposal Thursday during an interview with talk radio host Dana Loesch, where he assured conservatives they would not be targeted by his campus speech monitoring, reported Right Wing Watch.

“There are some who would say that it’s kind of like monitoring political speech,” Loesch said. “Do you agree with their assessment of that?”

Carson, who has said the Affordable Health Care Act is worse than slavery and proposed arming kindergarten teachers, said he would not agree with that criticism.

“No, I don’t, I think it’s a very big difference,” Carson said. “But, of course, that would be the first thing that the left would claim because they want to be able to continue to do this, and it’s not appropriate for public funding to be used to indoctrinate students in one direction.”

Loesch worried that conservatives might similarly be monitored, but Carson — who has warned that President Barack Obama would declare martial law before his term expires to hold onto the White House — argued that conservatism could never be considered an extreme ideology.

“I think we would have to put in very strict guidelines for the way that that was done — and that’s why I used the word ‘extreme,’” Carson said. “I didn’t just say ‘political bias,’ I said ‘extreme political biases.’”

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks on Wednesday denied under oath knowing anything about the hush-money scheme set up by former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen to pay off President Donald Trump's former mistresses.

"Hicks told lawmakers today that she did not have knowledge during 2016 campaign of hush-money payments made in run-up to election," reports CNN's Manu Raju. "Also she wouldn’t discuss what she learned about those payments during her time at White House because of immunity claims."

Trump’s 2020 campaign strategy is familiar: Troll the libs!

Published

on

Late on Tuesday, I got an email from an unusual source. A reporter for the conservative publication the Washington Examiner asked if I'd be interested in sharing thoughts on Joe Biden's history of joking "about 'locking up your daughters'" and on "Biden's view of women and gender relations." This was in light of my previous criticisms of Biden's apparent condescension towards girls and women, and his pockmarked history on gender relations in general.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) blasted Joe Biden for praising two segregationist senators he'd served with as a lawmaker.

The former vice president and current Democratic presidential frontrunner reminisced about his relationship with Mississippi Democrat James Eastland and Georgia Democrat Herman Talmadge, two notoriously racist senators during the Civil Rights era, reported The Hill.

“At least there was some civility, we got things done," Biden said, recalling that Eastland had never called him "boy." "We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done, we got it finished."
