A firestorm erupted among the liberal press on Sunday over GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson stating the obvious, that he would not be supportive of having a Muslim president since their views are counter to the U.S. Constitution. If you missed that interview, you can watch it HERE.
In a blockbuster interview with The Hill on Monday, Dr. Carson not only reiterated his position that Sharia Law is not consistent with the Constitution, but also exposed the Muslim principle of Taqiyya, i.e., lying and deceiving non-believers as long as it furthers their religion, often by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to ultimately defeat them.
“Taqiyya is a component of Shia that allows, and even encourages you to lie to achieve your goals,” Carson said.
Pushing back at the media firestorm over his remarks, Carson sought to frame himself as one of the few candidates running for president willing to tell hard truths.
“We are a different kind of nation,” Carson said. “Part of why we rose so quickly is because we wouldn’t allow our values or principles to be supplanted because we were going to be politically correct. … Part of the problem today is that we’re so busy trying to be politically correct, that we lose all perspective.”
Carson told The Hill that the question of a Muslim president is largely “irrelevant” because no Muslims are running in 2016. He said the question, which Todd is posing to all of the Republican presidential hopefuls who go on his show, “may well have been” gotcha journalism meant to trip the candidates up.
However, he acknowledged the question “served a useful purpose by providing the opportunity to talk about what Sharia is and what their goals are.”
“So often we get into these irrelevant things, because obviously if a Muslim was running for president, there would be a lot more education about Sharia, about Taqiyya,” Carson said.
Leftstream media is literally obsessed with the “Muslim question,” an apparent attempt to smear Republican presidential candidates as intolerant and bigoted, a favorite tactic of theirs.
Maybe this Taqiyya explains how Obama lies with such ease.
