Ben Carson Seeks Female Vote By Comparing Women to Slave Owners (Video)

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 4.38.14 AMIf the unthinkable happens and somehow Ben Carson manages to become our next president, this country is in a whole lot of trouble. While Donald Trump gets most of the attention from the media, in my opinion, Carson is much… much worse than Trump.

I’m sorry, but I’ll take a rich, arrogant blowhard over a religious fanatic any day.

For example, recent comments Carson made concerning abortion and victims of rape. Unsurprisingly, Carson opposes allowing rape victims to have an abortion, but he took things a step further during an interview with Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.”

“The mother should not believe that the baby is her enemy and should not be looking to terminate the baby,” Carson said. “We’ve allowed purveyors of division to think that baby is their enemy and they have a right to kill it. Can you see how perverted that line of thinking is?”

First, I have never heard of women viewing a fetus as “an enemy.” From what I’ve read, and from the women I’ve spoke with who’ve been victims of sexual assault, there are a litany of reasons why a woman wouldn’t want to carry a fetus to term following a rape. Not only that, but it’s deplorable to believe that you have the right to tell a woman who was just brutally assaulted that she now has no control over her body.

Does he realize how perverted that line of thinking is?

But he wasn’t even done.

“Think about this. During slavery, and I know that one of those words you’re not supposed to say, but I’m saying it,” Carson stated. “During slavery, a lot of the slave owners thought they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave, anything that they chose to do. And what if the abolitionists had said, ‘You know, I don’t believe in slavery, I think it’s wrong. But you guys do whatever you want to do.’ Where would we be?”

Simply put, Ben Carson is not a rational person. These are words from someone who clearly has no grasp of life outside of his own warped view of the world. And the worst part is, his view of the world is based on an extreme interpretation of the Bible. This is someone who literally believes that the theory of evolution is a tool of the devil.

The main goal for progressives, liberals and Democrats next year must be to make damn sure Republicans don’t win the White House. I’m not exaggerating at all when I say that if the GOP wins next November, based upon the idiots they have running, they’re not going to set this country back years… they’ll set it back decades. 

If that doesn’t motivate everybody on the left, I’m not sure what will.
