Ben Carson has nearly worn the malakatude crown of thorns before but I came up with some snappy titles for those posts. I like snappy titles. This week, I’m going to do something a bit different with this feature. Dr. Carson is known for saying stupid shit and is particularly fond of Nazi and slavery analogies. I’m going to use his own preposterous words against him since I’m feeling lazy today. And that is why Ben Carson is malaka of the week.
The quotes are listed in no particular order:
“Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay. So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”
–March 4, 2015.
“If people don’t speak up for what they believe, then other people will change things without them having a voice. Hitler changed things there and nobody protested. Nobody provided any opposition to him.”
–Sept. 30, 2015.
“I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed.”
–Oct. 8, 2015
“The number-one cause of death for black people is abortion.”
–Aug. 13, 2015
“There is no doubt that this senseless violence is breathtaking — but I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away.”
–Oct. 5, 2015
We’ll finish with an oldie from October, 2013:
“Obamacare is really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. And it is in a way, it is slavery in a way, because it is making all of us subservient to the government, and it was never about health care. It was about control.”
This, ladies and germs, is your temporary Republican frontrunner. The mouthbreathers and biblethumpers love him, but will they actually vote for him? As a resident of the Gret Stet of Louisiana, I am familiar with the ultimate outsider protest candidate, David Duke. He ran statewide twice and lost decisively both times. I’m not sure that Carson has as much staying power as a novelty protest candidate. Besides, Dukkke tried *not* to say stupid shit and Carson does so constantly. I’m back to my whole self-lobotomy theory with Dr. C. And that is why Ben Carson is malaka of the week.
