Ben Carson is currently the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the United States. He also just claimed that the allegations of attempted rape by Kavanaugh are part of a centuries old socialist plot. Seriously.
Carson said of the allegations at the Values Voter Summit in Washington:
“If you really understand the big picture of what’s going on, then what’s going on with Kavanaugh will make perfectly good sense to you. There’ve been people in this country for a very long time, going all the way back to the Fabians, people who’ve wanted to fundamentally change this country.”
The Fabian Society is a British socialist group that opened a chapter in the United States in 1895. The chapter is no longer active.
Nevertheless, the Fabians apparently are behind Kavanaugh’s allegations. Carson continued:
“They don’t like what America is and what it represents, and they want to change us to another system. In order to do that, there are three things they must control: the education system, the media, and the courts.The first two of those they have. The other they thought they had, but it was snatched out from under their noses in November of 2016.”
[These forces] “are like wet hornets, just completely lost control off the deep end, and the further they get away from being able to control the courts the more desperate they become. They don’t see themselves as being able to control the courts for another generation, so what is left? Chaos and destruction.”
Well, that’s pretty much absurd beyond words. And if that isn’t enough for you, Carson ended by saying these allegations of sexual assault may deter “good people” from going into politics:
“The fearful part is that good people will be afraid to serve their government. They won’t want to take a chance of their reputation being sullied.”
Sigh. Again, this guy has a serious role in the Trump administration. His decisions impact millions of Americans and he’s spouting off this kind of nonsense.
