According to the Jerusalem Post, Carson told CNN he believes that had Jews in Europe been armed more heavily, they could have avoided the Holocaust.
“I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed,” Carson said. “I’m telling you there is a reason these dictatorial people take the guns first.”
The Republican said that the process of removing accessibility to guns allowed the Nazis to “carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”
Yup, a better-armed minority population certainly stood a chance against a government run army. This is the lunacy we hear today from gun-nuts, the NRA and well, the Republican Party who want to defend their right to own as many guns as they want and claim it is to protect themselves from the government.
Carson already seems hell bent on losing the black vote, the Hispanic vote, women, educated people in general, so why not go ahead and say something hurtful and ignorant about Jews and make sure absolutely no one votes for you.
I have to believe that every time Carson opens his mouth, Donald Trump gets a little excited that he actually looks like an idiot.
