And Dr. Carson Knocks It Out Of The Park

The sly smirk as he delivers the last line is the best part.

Full disclosure, I know Dr. Carson personally. I can attest that he is a man of true character and integrity. What you see and hear when he speaks is the real Dr. Carson, not a slick package groomed by a political consultant. He is an honest to God down to Earth person who remembers where he came from and loves his country. I spoke to him quite a few times while he was debating whether or not to run. His answer was always that he was praying on it and listening to the people. He is becoming more informed and more articulate on some issues that he has never before been forced to devote a inordinate amount of intellectual effort on, but he is a solid conservative at his core, and a good, moral man in his soul. His faith isn’t circumspect, his beliefs are not newly discovered, and he doesn’t back away from his statements, especially when he speaks common sense and the media tries to pull a “gotcha”. Anyone who has studied pisslam at all KNOWS that it isn’t compatible with the Constitution.

“I have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam. If they are not willing to reject Sharia and all the portions of it that are talked about in the Quran — if they are not willing to reject that, and subject that to American values and the Constitution, then of course, I would,”

Jake Tapper -“You seem to be signaling out Muslims as individuals who automatically, as a knee-jerk, would put their religion ahead of the country. I think that offended a lot of people, including a lot of patriotic Muslims. You’re an African-American. You know what it’s like for people to make false assumptions about you, and you seem to be doing the same thing with Muslims. … You’re assuming that Muslim Americans put their religion ahead of the country.”

“I’m assuming that if you accept all the tenets of Islam that you would have a very difficult time abiding under the Constitution of the United States.” BOOM.

And his wife is quite a baker too. 🙂

“Knee-jerk?” That would be Jake Crapper.

“You’re assuming that Muslim Americans put their religion ahead of the country.” Tapper, normally a fair-to-middlin’ journalist, seems unaware that Islam requires exactly that from all Muslims. Also, he should spend a few CPU cycles reflecting on the name of the foremost Muslim mouthpiece group: the “Council on American-Islamic Relations.” That explicitly puts Islam on the level of a national… Read more »

The single greatest problem that western civilization seems to have with Islam is confusing it with religion. It is not a religion, at least in any way that Christians, Jews, Protestants or other prevalent first world bodies of faith would understand the word. This creates circumstances that are ripe for exploitation by Islamic adherents, since most first worlders tend to… Read more »

A truely inspirational American. Dr. Carson is cut from the cloth that used to make this country great. During a time when innovation and industriousness was a hallmark of success. We can only hope a man of his caliber and beliefs once again holds the greatest office in our republic. Tapper has been at his throat every interview. While not… Read more »

Dr Carson got that shit right on the money. And that taqqiya is part of their espoused belief system. It’s a reasonable bet to doubt anything any of them say. :em03:
