Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has been spoken of (by some delusional GOP/Tea Baggers) as a potential candidate for 2016. Nonsense, of course, because every time Carson opens his mouth, he demonstrates that however much he may know about surgery, he knows sweet fuck all about anything else. For example, Carson has repeatedly compared the United States to Nazi Germany, a comparison that's as ignorant as it is odious.
(relevant comments began at about 8:00)
And then again, he was doing it at the Interweb Home For Dead Breitbarts:
Following a standing ovation at his address to the standing-room-only crowd, Dr. Ben Carson said that the current state of our government and institutions are "very much like Nazi Germany."Carson's reasoning? Certain 'aspects' of America 'intimidate people into silence'.
Like the...erm...'silence' that envelopes Ben Carson...or not.
"And it's because of the PC police, it's because of politicians, it's because of news. It's all of these things are combining to stifle people’s conversation," he said.Name a single goddamned conversation that's been stifled by America's Nazi-like policies, you incoherent buffoon.
And, like all GOP/Tea Bagger blowhards, the clueless Carson is not backing down...because he is unteachable. In a profile in yesterday's Washington Post:
Carson has been in the news for saying the health-care law is “the worst thing to happen in this nation since slavery,” for seeming to compare same-sex marriage to bestiality, and for saying that “America is very much like Nazi Germany.”Obamacare is the worst thing to happen in America since slavery? Are you fucking kidding me, you dolt? Gay marriage = bestiality, you small-minded, irrational bigot? The US is 'very much like Nazi Germany', you risible putz?
Does he worry that perhaps comparing Obama supporters to Nazi sympathizers may sound like something a bully might do?
“You can’t dance around it,” he says. “If people look at what I said and were not political about it, they’d have to agree. Most people in Germany didn’t agree with what Hitler was doing. . . . Exactly the same thing can happen in this country if we are not willing to stand up for what we believe in.”
Oh, yeah...this clown is definitely GOP presidential material. Bring it on.
