Ben Carson: Muslim should not be elected US president

Ben Carson, a Republican presidential candidate, has said Islam is antithetical to the US Constitution, and that a Muslim should not be elected president of the United States.

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that,” Carson told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

Carson, a devout Christian, said he thought a US president’s faith should be “consistent with the constitution”. He did not specify in what way Islam ran counter to constitutional principles.

America’s largest Muslim civil rights group condemned Carson for his statement, which it said should disqualify him from the presidential contest because the US constitution forbids religious tests for holding public office.

“It’s beyond the pale and he should withdraw,” said Council on American-Islamic Relations spokesman Ibrahim Hooper.

OMG! He can’t say that!

Can he?

The media and the Leftist Social Justice Warriors (but I repeat myself) have been pretty successful in defining the boundaries of “politically correct” speech. Even in the aftermath of 9/11 George Bush was careful to state that we weren’t at war with Islam, just a few Islamic radicals.

Of course that may also have something to do with our dependence on Islamic oil.

I figure this incident ought to be good for a 10 point boost for Carson. People (especially the people who vote in Republican primaries) are tired of tip-toeing around the camel in the middle of the room – Islam is incompatible with American democracy, law, custom and culture. Islam cannot peacefully coexist with other religions.

Islam is an existential threat to Western Civilization.

OMG! I can’t say that!

Can I?

    Yes you can, and you must, because it is. I cannot comprehend how anyone with half a brain cell can’t see it.

    • cynic says:

      Helen, unfortunately, I scrolled past this link several times without going to the link and reading the article. Thank you for posting it. This needs everyones attention. It wasn’t until I watched Morning Joe this a.m. that I realized how important this story is. Read this, watch the clip from Morning Joe, and read the article at the NY Times. Then ask yourself why we wouldn’t want to elect a Muslim President. Perhaps Obama gave the orders to the Commanders. Joe goes on a tear asking why the Pentagon and the Administration turned the other way, knowing that this was going on!
      “Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan,particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally “boy play,” and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records.”
      “… instead of weeding out pedophiles, the American military was arming them in some cases and placing them as the commanders of villages — and doing little when they began abusing children.”
      “The American policy of nonintervention is intended to maintain good relations with the Afghan police and militia units the United States has trained to fight the Taliban. It also reflects a reluctance to impose cultural values in a country where pederasty is rife, particularly among powerful men, for whom being surrounded by young teenagers can be a mark of social status.”

    Richard Fernandez on the relationship between the Bear and Bronco
    “The cherished image of effortless superiority burnished by what Mark Steyn calls the media “palace guard” is in danger of cracking under the strain. Like a person famous for being famous, the president’s majestic progress is dependent on the fact of it. Once the music stops the whole show falls over.”

    “The world is probably in one of its most dangerous conditions since World War 2. Yet the president is unwilling to even face the gravity of the situation for fear of besmirching his reputation. No reputation was ever worth that much.”

    I think there are a couple of people kicking that camel now. Others still tip-toeing around.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    LOL, Obama’s muslim pals are demanding Carson drop out of the race because what he said was unConstitutional. There is no religious exclusions for President or something. Oh, how camel butt hurt they are !! Go Ben Go!

    • lyn says:

      LOL is right. The Narcissist in Chief is making 2016 about him.

    • 1539days says:

      And to that I say What the hell? First, Carson’s free speech means he can’t be forbidden by the government to run for president. Secondly, there is no “religious test” unless he said he wouldn’t hire a Muslim AS president. Who you vote for is also protected by the First Amendment.

    • leslie says:

      It’s been a yuuuuge topic on MSNBC this morning, too. Now, they’re interviewing Trump and saying “Every candidate will now have to be asked this question”. This is such a non-issue. Jeebus. They didn’t ask this question when bronco was running, In fact they asked NO questions as far as I can recall. I’d like to know who thought of asking Carson this question anyhow. Is it because he is a member of the Seventh Day Adventist religion?
      What a messed up country.

    The guy who gets struck by lightning twice was planning to rob the couple ahead of him.

    • votermom says:

      That’s incredible. There were trees right there that were taller than him that should have been struck first. It makes me wonder if he was carrying or wearing domething that attracted the lightning (like a walking lightning rod).

      • Lulu says:

        I have seen “heat lightning” that goes all over the place instead of following what would be considered thunderstorm lightning or whatever rules. It is kind of crazy and very scary. I thought this might be that with him moving around and hitting him twice in a very limited area. And it didn’t kill him because it was “little” lightning.

        • votermom says:

          I was just reading about lightning after watching that and you are right. Apparently lightning decides what it’s gonna hit at the last minute, and will hit low objects even if there are taller ones pretty close.

        Whatever happened to Rev. Jerry after he went under the bus?

          Retired to his million dollar estate in the white gated community?

          • swanspirit says:

            I should have said forced/paid off retirement, because that is my personal opinion. I just can’t see someone as effusive and gregarious as Rev. Jerry retiring at that point in his career without some serious encouragement , and possibly some sedation./ snark

            Here’s the good Rev. home in Tinley Park – only $10 million home that backs up to a golf course (a bit shabby compared to my home in Wisconsin /s/)

          Don’t forget that his Daughter Jeri was charged and then indited last July to two years in prison, and three years of supervision (6 mos. of that being home confinement) for money laundering, and lying to federal investigators (state grant fraud scheme).

          “District Judge Sue Myerscough revoked Wright’s bail when she found probable cause that Wright was involved in a ghost payrolling scheme at an Indiana plastics company while on bond.”

          The judge was “troubled by the amount of lying involved” in the case.

          • leslie says:

            cynic, Thank you for your comment.❤ It saved me from having to type it out. My typing is so bad and is even a greater chore to have to read. 😦

          • cynic says:

            Leslie, I’m laughing to myself. Of the few words that I actually wrote, I see I misspelled indicted! yeesh

            Did you get a chance to see Morning Joe this a.m.?

          • leslie says:

            I only saw a tiny bit; I overslept. I did see some of their rant on Carson and Muslims as president. I did not pay attention today.
            Did you see any of the Emmy’s last night? I Turned it off after it appeared it would be a “bash political conservatives” and trans-fest.

          • cynic says:

            I haven’t watched an award show in years. It was probably about the same time that I stopped watching The View. I told my husband that politics has ruined me. I never realized how manipulating and one-sided tv is. It has taken the fun out of award shows and tv in general.

            It’s only been the last couple of years that I started tuning in to reruns of Law and Order. Boy, the story lines and little digs that they took at Republicans is stunning.

            Progressives run the media, education, etc. They mentioned on Morning Joe about all the movie stars, musicians, etc. that have come out endorsing Bernie. Looks like he’ll be getting the youth vote.

  11. boutis says:

    Ben Carson IS talking about Obama. And to me at least he is talking about the incapability of sharia law and our legal and economic system. OUR legal system evolved from Judeo-Christian legal theory which is the opposite of Muslim sharia law. As a black Christian he can clearly see that it is a system of slavery and top down political and economic power. He is correct.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I totally agree that most of us don’t care what religion our friends practice, most important is how they treat us. So actions do speak louder than words and in Obama’s case, I don’t know what religion would have claim to him. He seems to have his own diety, his mirror.😉

    PROF. JEFFREY SONNENFELD: Yes, Trump Was Right, Carly Fiorina Was One of the Worst CEOs of All-Time

    A Dean at Yale Business School, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld was surprised to hear his name come up not once, but twice, at CNN’s GOP debate. Donald Trump noted Fiorina’s abysmal track record as a CEO at Lucent and HP, citing Sonnenfeld’s authorship, which was not rooted in any political affiliation.

    Fiorina’s response was to deflect and deny, but Sonnenfeld penned a blistering response today in Politico:

      • Lulu says:

        It went up after they undid everything she did but after she was canned. No other corporation would touch her with a ten foot pole. Not even a dinky one. And she didn’t start her own or open shop as a tech consultant. She re-invented herself as a “government board” consultant then political candidate. Notice she didn’t start out as a county supervisor or even mayor but the US Senate and then US presidency.

        • Mary says:

          And she left with a $26 million golden parachute.

          • Lulu says:

            That was her go away and shut up money. Maybe also never work in tech again!

          • leslie says:

            I have no problem with people negotiating parachutes for themselves when let go by a company. I have friends who have been “let go” after company mergers and one who accepted an “early retirement” offer. They hired their own lawyers to make the terminations worth their while. I don’t blame people for looking out for themselves. The companies/employers went on to do whatever they did – whether flourish or fail – without these people. It was the company/employer who paid out the severance – It should be the company that is under fire for the “golden parachute” that was paid. Not the receiver.

        • votermom says:

          Bottom line for me is that I don’t see accomplishments in her resume that prepare her for the Oval Office. The country is much more screwed up and in a worse environment than HP ever was.

          • elliesmom says:

            The view from inside the company at the time that was shared by a lot of the employees was that she did what she knew was right for the company in spite of knowing it would cost her her job. There was a lot of respect for her.

    • Lulu says:

      Anytime the rules and regs are changed for anything it affects something. This is an example of a knee jerk (or just ignorant social pressure) reaction with no thought or consideration for cause and effect.

    • leslie says:

      Even while the Mail’s headline focused on Dawkins and SP, they couldn’t let the opportunity to mention Bristol Palin’s pregnancy pass, could they? It’s as if her pregnancy diminishes the relevance of her statements (and perhaps the statements of other critics). They actually mentioned Palin’s pregnancy more than once. But they didn’t seem to think the topic of a “minority group” boy, of color, played the teachers, police and others. And was rewarded for his prank so that no one could claim “racially motivated mistreatment”.
      I’m tired of it all.
      I didn’t start out to be so judgmental. I know that the insane expectation that I accept whatever is “served” my way has had such negative effects on me that I no longer look at people the same way I once did. I am not as “understanding” or accepting of the stories I read or hear. I don’t care if I come off sounding like a bigot or hateful. I have been pushed to this point by the blatant “bending over backwards” for people who are “different” from me, and by the movements that are meant to make me feel guilty for things I had nothing to do with and never approved of.

    Seems those celebrating the demise of Trump after the last debate were premature. Post-debate Zogby poll has him increasing lead; Carly got a 2 pt bump (to 7%) and Jeb! is stuck at 9.

    • DeniseVB says:

      The demise of Trump is in their wet dreams. I’ve seen about 12 billion polls since the last debate. Even the Today Show used a CNN poll because NBC’s had Trump higher.

      He’s still double digits ahead of his closest rival on the national level. I think Carly’s ahead of him in the town of Cluckamuck, NH ? LOL, our media’s just so precious with manipulating facts😛
