Ben Carson on liberal Americans: ‘many of them are stupid’

Ben Carson on liberal Americans: ‘many of them are stupid’ November 3, 2015


Republican presidential front-runner, Ben Carson is taking a play out of the Mitt Romney guide to losing an election and disparaging the American voter by calling them stupid.

As part of a 2014 book tour stop, Carson was addressing a crowd and he was asked if he would run for president. He claimed he would not, saying it would be bad for the Republican Party, and then discussed some invisible enemy of the U.S., presumably talking about the left:

They can twist and turn things as much as they want. But what they don’t understand—and they miscalculated. They were doing a great job in terms of fundamentally changing this nation. In terms of infiltrating the school systems. In terms of infiltrating the media. All of this—they’ve done a great job. Everything was perfect. Except they underestimated the intelligence of the American people. The people are not as stupid as they think they are. Many of them are stupid. Okay. But I’m talking about overall.

This is Ben Carson’s plan as president to unite a nation, to call “many of them stupid” for caring about liberal policies and social justice issues.

It should go without saying the irony in a man who believes the earth is 6,000 years old calling other people stupid.

While the left’s Hillary Clinton supporters are trying to peg Bernie Sanders as a sexist, the GOP front-runner is calling American’s stupid and they are silent.
