Ben Carson was invited to talk to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and then did an interview afterward with Buzzfeed in which he declared that he “loves all gay people” even though he compares them to pedophiles and they’re part of a “new world order” that seeks to destroy America and turn it communist.
“I don’t hate gay people; I just happen to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman,” told the audience to some applause…
How would Carson react if one of his sons were gay? “I would still love him, just like I love all gay people,” he said. Would attend his wedding, though, should he choose to marry another man? He was less sure (“I don’t know”). But, Carson had a question in response — is there a place for same-sex marriage opponents?
“What I would ask — I think, maybe BuzzFeed can get an answer to this question: What position can a person who believes in traditional marriage, between one man and one woman, have, who has absolutely no animosity or opposition to gay people – what position can they take that would be satisfactory to the gay community?” he asked. “Because if they can give me an answer to that, I’m quite willing to seriously consider it. But so far I haven’t been able to find anybody who can give me an answer — it’s sort of like, ‘Nope! It has to be my way or the highway.’”
I know, right? Just like those uppity black people refused to “tolerate” any position short of equality. I mean, they refused to accept the “satisfactory” compromise that would have allowed lunch counters and other businesses to refuse to hire or serve them in the name of religious freedom. That terrible Martin Luther King thought it had to be his way or the highway! How dare he! As for Carson’s alleged love for all gay people, let’s review some of his past statements:
Carson has linked gay rights advocates to supporters of pedophilia and bestiality, attacked LGBT-affirming churches as offensive to God, demanded that Congress oust judges who back gay rights, and accused gay people of seeking “extra rights” and creating a powerful “P.C. police who have tried in many cases to shut me up.”
Speaking at a National Organization for Marriage fundraiser, he insisted that gay marriage is a communist plot designed to bring down America and usher in a “New World Order.” However, Carson said he would no longer discuss gay rights issues after he received criticism for telling a CNN host that prison sex proves homosexuality is “absolutely” a choice.
I love you all, every one of you pedophile animal fuckers who want extra rights because you work for the New World Order and are trying to turn American into a Marxist hellhole. Love — you keep using that word…
