The mainstream media abhors conservatives and they particularly hate conservatives of color. The left cannot abide a message that blacks are not obligated to vote Democrat and they are certainly not obligated to augment the size and roll of government by becoming dependent upon the government for generations.
Dr. Ben Carson is a threat to this narrative that blacks must rely upon the government for their very existence. Carson, a famed pediatric neurosurgeon, is a self-made man who rose-up from poverty to become a world-famous surgeon and is now mounting an ever-growing presidential campaign.
His message of less government, more personal accountability and free-market economics challenge the carefully-crafted narrative favored by the left that places black America as victims of oppression that must rely upon government.
So, it has hardly been surprising to see that as his campaign gains momentum, the mainstream media has become less and less veiled in their attempts to smear the good doctor. The latest attempt centers on a preposterous smear campaign that alleges that Carson should provide documentation for his reported offer from West Point- an offer that reportedly took place in a conversation 50 years ago.
Meanwhile, I can’t remember who my 3rd grade teacher was, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t attend 3rd grade.
Even if one presumes that the mainstream media has a right or a duty to rake Dr. Carson over the coals for his story of personal responsibility and self-reliance, their attempts to smear him are obvious when we consider who they didn’t vet.
Namely, the mainstream media thoroughly refused to vet Barack Obama. We were told to take whatever nugget of backstory was offered us and any who dared to question the sizable holes in the personal narrative of Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama were dismissed as bigots.
Not all are buying the ridiculous mainstream media vendetta against Dr. Carson. One tweet from Hollywood actor James Woods hits the nail on the head beautifully.
Check it out and be sure to support James Woods. It can’t be easy being one of a few Hollywood actors who reject the liberal dogma.
