Dr. Ben Carson has been attacked and vilified by the left for months, ever since he made his decision to ‘throw in’ with Donald J. Trump.
He’s been called horrible, racist things by leftwing activists. He’s been mocked and derided by the mainstream media. He’s even been accused of not being all that intelligent… this is the man who has actually pioneered SEVERAL different advances in neurosurgery… he’s literally a BRAIN SURGEON.
As a pioneer in neurosurgery, Carson’s achievements include performing the only successful separation of conjoined twins joined at the back of the head, pioneering the first successful neurosurgical procedure on a fetus inside the womb, performing the first completely successful separation of type-2 vertical craniopagus twins, developing new methods to treat brain-stem tumors, and reviving hemispherectomy techniques for controlling seizures. He became the youngest chief of pediatric neurosurgery in the country at age 33. He has received more than 60 honorary doctorate degrees, dozens of national merit citations, and written over 100 neurosurgical publications. In 2008, he was bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States.
This is the man they’ve mocked.
Now, the left is attempting to drive a hard wedge between ethnic communities in their effort to undermine President Trump. Lately, Republicans have been called racists, bigots, and supporters of white supremacy. Of course, no evidence exists to defend such an assertion. In the wake of Charlottesville, Republicans all over America could be heard decrying racism, bigotry, and violence.
However, Dr. Carson (and President Trump) isn’t going to let the media rip us apart without a fight. Dr. Carson had an important message for the American people on Tuesday night and he delivered that message from a massive rally in Phoenix, Arizona.
“The purveyors of hatred and division, they want to divide us on the basis of race, income, age and religion. But you know what? We are much too smart to fall for that garbage!
We the people of America will choose to fill our brains with knowledge over ignorance, our hearts with love instead of hatred, our tongues with words of respect instead of slander.
Our hands will not be filled with steel and stone, but proudly holding our star spangled banner. Under which so many have sacrificed, under which we now gather in freedom, under which God willing our children shall live together in freedom!”
Dr. Carson is right. There are forces on the left and in the media that seem intent on poisoning race relations in America and wreaking havoc on our communities.
The media’s complicity in the attacks of the left are clearly visible.
In a story on President Trump’s call for a return to “law and order” (you know, where rioters aren’t causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, where police aren’t being attacked, and where people are allowed to exercise their right to free speech), the LA Times said that Trump’s remarks were racist and reminiscent of Democrat George Wallace.
CNN called Trump’s speech “angry” and “divisive” without realizing the irony of their own words.

Earlier this morning CNN had 6 real Americans on to ask them how they felt about President Trump’s response to the Charlottesville attack, and not one of those people were bothered by his response.
You know – the response where Trump said that racism, hatred, bigotry, and violence were wrong. The response where President Trump decried white supremacy and the alt-right.
The problem the left has is that President Trump pointed out that the Left was using violence, a lot, as well.
In fact, that violence was on full display in Phoenix yesterday as the leftists gathered to break laws and attack the police… again.
Is President Trump perfect? Hardly.
He’s a man. He has many foibles and shortcomings and he’s often responded to criticism badly, but he’s not the monster that the left is making him out to be and he’s not the villain in this current drama.
The media is sowing havoc, and they are not just undermining the President, they’re undermining our nation.
This has to stop.
