Ben Carson ties Hillary Clinton to Lucifer at the Republican National Convention.
The retired neurosurgeon and former GOP presidential candidate went on a rant against “secular progressives,” Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky, and Lucifer while speaking at last night’s Republican National Convention.
Carson attacked Clinton because she wrote her 1969 Wellesley undergraduate thesis on Saul Alinsky, a legendary liberal community organizer that conservatives love to hate.
Carson told his Republican audience:
Let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky. He wrote a book called Rules for Radicals. On the dedication page, it acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom.
Now think about that. This is a nation where our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our Creator. This is a nation where our Pledge of Allegiance says we are one nation “Under God.” This is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says “In God We Trust.”
Not surprising, the conservative crowd cheered when Carson said “Under God” and “In God We Trust.”
Carson continued, asking the Republican audience:
So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model someone who acknowledges Lucifer?

Carson went on to warn the audience:
The secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principles of the founding of this nation. And if we continue to allow them to take God out of our lives, God will remove himself from us. We will not be blessed, and our nation will go down the tubes. And we will be responsible for that. We don’t want that to happen.
Earlier today, in a follow up interview with CNN, Carson defended connecting Hillary Clinton to Lucifer.
Bottom line: Carson’s rhetoric claiming “the secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principles of the founding of this nation” demonstrates a profound failure to understand the secular principles upon which this nation was founded. However, his attempt to connect Clinton to Lucifer, is just plain nutty.
