He stood up for his beliefs, and hasn’t backed away from them. No guts? How do you figure that?
Could you run his apology past me again? I guess I missed it the first time.
Then they came for everyone else.
You can say all you want that we won’t give up the guns.
But that changes when you have 20 brownshirts with weapons pointed at you, your wife, and your kids.
If we aren’t gonna give up the guns, then we should use them before they even try.
I’m sorry, but the good Dr. Carson is already showing sings that he has the spine of a jelly fish. No thanks!
This is why we lose...instead of just staying the course, folks on our side “step down” willingly.
I say give the speech and let them ruin “their day” with protests and sit-ins and yelling and screaming and all of the other tactics they use.
The Sarah Palin garbage still ticks me off to this day. Because I knew they were going to keep using the same tactics from that point forward.
In reality those tactics started with Bush. This was the danger of sitting back letting the left define you day in and day out.
"Carson apologized for his choice of words in a Baltimore Sun story on Friday, but not for his position."
It’s reprehensible. It’s another victory for stupidity. I’m tired of these leftist whiners always getting their way. They should shut the H___ up.
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
...It is finished..
If John Hopkins refuses to allow Carson to speak, it will constitute a huge publicity boost for the good Doctor. I hope they cancel him, and then try to justify it publicly.
HUGE FALLOUT. HUGE EXPOSURE OF LEFTIST BIGOTRY.
That will assure that Doctor Carson will run for elective
They HOPE it will make him lose some of his star power.
Thanks. That was not in this article. Of course, I’m not satisfied with an anonymous quote from an unnamed source. I pasted your quote into a search, and found the article at the Baltimore Sun.
>>>”Now perhaps the examples were not the best choice of words, and I
>>>certainly apologize if I offended anyone,” he added. “But the point that I
>>>was making was that no group of individuals, whoever they are,
>>>whatever their belief systems, gets to change traditional definitions. The
>>>reason I believe the way I do, I will readily confess, is because I am a
>>>Christian who believes in The Bible.”
I think that makes it perfectly clear. Thanks again for setting me on the right path. : )
Libs going all out, now. They are calling him a racist, ridiculing his skills and accomplishments as a neurosurgeon, and saying there is no place in America for “his kind.”
BILL AYERS NAMED VISITING SCHOLAR AT MINNESOTA STATE UNIVERSITY
...and, of course, not a peep of protest from normal Americans.
You don't know U of M med school...
They don't call it Moscow on the Huron for nothing..
Don't get me wrong, I have friends and loved ones healed their by gifted surgeons, but the pomposity of the Uber Political Correctness knows no bounds.
Like the time I was in line at the cafeteria their and two interns behind me pontificating about hybrid cars, John Kerry and other leftist drivel...
And oh by the way, you want to donate money their to a dept for the advancement of Medicine?
The School takes 25% right off the top as a fee, IMHO that makes the Soprano's look like lightweights...
They will learn that it is nothing more than an invitation to break down even more taboos making the world more crude and less civilized.
They will learn what real poverty looks like.
They will learn what slavery feels like.
In short they will learn a lot of things I don't even want to think about, let alone learn about first-hand.
Good luck graduates.
Good thing I don’t run the school. The little twerps would sit in silence for the duration of what would have been his speech. See how they
really like what happens when speech is suppressed...little Nazis!
I cannot wait until their system turns against them...they need to learn what real repression feels like.
So if they don’t want him to speak, he should force himself on them anyway just to have them boo and hiss, laugh, call him a Tom and throw things at him?
I’m glad the Apostle Paul didn’t think like that. If he had backed away during the days of the early Church the Word might not have spread as it did.
I understand Carson’s motivation but his decision-making is suspect. Especially in the context of a party structure that hates them, social conservatives need to stand firm now more than ever.
Acts 16: 16-40.
It’s coming, and for more people than just Ben Carson.
if he did speak at the event, there would be a small group of people who would interrupt, heckle, and abuse him, and ruin it for everybody.
That is how the left does things these days.
“Free speech for me but not for thee”
Look back at some campus speeches by Michelle Malkin, David Horowitz, and other conservatives to see the evil mobs in action.
That is a very good point.
When I see a “Penn State” sweatshirt, guess what the first thing is that enters my mind.
Now a JH Diploma on a doctor’s wall is going to make me think twice.
Meanwhile, every leftist and Communist speaker who wants to, gets to speak at commencement ceremonies. From Danny Glover to you-name-the-Bolshevik. Yet, nobody on the right ever seems to even speak up, much less start petitions.
Every single private event that took place here, from a Tom Tancredo breakfast, to Sheriff Joe speaking at a bookstore, to Ann Coulter speaking at a university hall — the screaming libs took over. They were escorted out, but had already caused a huge disturbance. Who wants to run the gauntlet of angry Communists in order to go see Sheriff Joe? (It’s good that I was dressed like one of the hippies that day though, so they didn’t swing their pinata head of the sheriff at me.)
Yes... I have seen that too.
As soon as these idiots start, they should be “escorted” out by armed guards. They are not practicing “free speech”; they are being “disorderly”.
Over thirty years ago, I participated in a Pro-Life March. The Pro-Lifers were commanded to keep moving, and not stand still.
Yet the Anti-life crowd were free to stand on the sideline and hurl profanities, insults, and other things.
There were plenty of cops around but they did nothing to protect the marchers.
[they are being disorderly.]
Ya, but the “fiscally conservative” owners of the Oligarchic collective don’t care about that as long as their disorderly subjects worship the Golden Bull-market the masters have manufactured by throwing everybody’s gold into the fire... again.
This is the beginning of the vilification of a good, decent and incredibly sane man...we cannot let this happen.
"Sperm from female stem cells"
...Abomination of Nature in the “student body”?
The proponents of “tolerance” are the most intolerant of all. Can’t they endure an opposing view? I think not because it shows just how bankrupt their views are. Homosexuality is NOT a life style; it’s a death style, because they can’t reproduce unless they indoctrinate those who are naive and unsure of themselves. Can’t people see this? Why not just give them civil unions with all the rights of survival? Why must they encroach on holy matrimony, designed by God for the propagation of the earth and for His glory?
>>Cant they endure an opposing view?
They can not procreate without the perversion of medical science to facilitate their abomination of nature.
It’s Transhumanist/Postgenderist doctrine in progressive action.
Frankenstein. Dr. Frankenstein... please come to the nearest Rainbow courtesy phone.
Dr. Carson did that when he expressed his views on gun control.
I foresee many on the right soon realizing they were fooled again into hitching their wagon to another false conservative.
As if everyone in that school supports same sex marriage.
Those capable of critical thought understand this is typical liberalism and everything ugly.
Censor, shout down, burn the books and simply refuse to listen.
This guy did the right thing. Let them censor...It's what they do.
This guy is classy and really put these censoring leftist in their place with his comments.
But that’s another story and a totally different issue.
This one is about marriage, not guns or hitching up wagons.
Johns Hopkins normals? Well maybe-—but if there are any they’d best be speaking up to shut down the queerhuggers. Otherwise Hopkins can flush its reputation also.
Carson is lucky this is happening at the end of his career. If he was just starting out, libs would have laid waste to his career before it even began. No hospital would have accepted him. As it is, historians, which are controlled by libs, are going to treat him very unkindly.
I hope the students at Ohio State do the same for Omoron...I would defer my graduation ceremony so as to not hear that liar in chief.
We’ve become a country of closed minded buffoons thanks to the piggies in “academia”. The government is everything to the piggies. If you don’t spew the government line, you are not welcome.
Apparently diversity as understood by the left does not inclide diverse opinions, thought and politics.
Doctors fighting to protect and encourage rectum abuse.

Of what school do you think you are speaking? I think you’ve totally botched which school this is.
