Silence No More! Defend Dr. Ben Carson From The Pro Gay Thought Police!
http://www.rpvnetwork.org ^ | March 30, 2013 | F.R. Newbrough

Posted on 03/29/2013 11:40:29 PM PDT by Maelstorm

Dr. Ben Carson is an inspiration by every measure. He was born in Detroit Michigan and grew up in the harsh inner city. His mother only had a third grade education but she pushed her son to excel and worked 3 jobs as a single Mom to give him and his brother a leg up even though she could barely read. He credits his Mom, God, and hard work for his success.

He went from being a poor child in an inner city community with poor grades to rise to honors and then go on to medical school and now has risen to be one of the best neurosurgeons in the world and the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins specializing in the separation of conjoined twins.

Now Dr. Carson is under attack. Why is he under attack? He dared to affirm traditional marriage and the belief that though people are free to live how they wish that no one has the right to redefine it.

"Marriage is between a man and a woman," Carson said. "It's a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality -- it doesn't matter what they are, they don't get to change the definition."

A student group, the Health and Human Rights Student Group, is now trying to silence Dr. Carson and have him removed as commencement speaker simply because he affirmed marriage and did not speak highly of homosexuality. He was not vulgar, he was not hateful, he simply expressed an opinion and has even apologized to those that expressed that they were offended though he maintained his clear unwavering support of marriage. Isn't it time for this kind of thing to STOP?

Homosexual activists and their supporters routinely say the most horrid vulgar obscene things about their opponents. They are not polite and their arguments usually devolve in to allegations of bigotry and profanity and then they even get invited to the White House. Gay activist Dan Savage was one of these. Schools like Yale routinely have porn stars and politicians that compare our soldiers to Nazis speaking on their campus but some how a black man who rose from nothing is not acceptable because he spoke his mind and offended some homosexual activists who seem to think them being offended is grounds for making someone a social and professional outcast.

Let's send them a message and give them a lesson on free speech something they have not cornered the market on. Here is the link to the Health and Human Rights Student Group. Please make you voice heard and stand up for Dr. Carson. Stand up! Silence No More!

That's not entirely true. He is under attack because he is a black man with a mind of his own and because he dare not worship the messiah Barry.

Here’s my latest on these marriage ‘equality’ idiots. They’re misogynistic jackwagons that equate the vagina with the anus.

Yes you make a good point and I thought about that too but I figured it is better to play it close to the issue. The fact is the gay rights thought police just can’t have anyone of prominence that they just can’t dismiss as a religious uneducated nut saying what Dr. Carson said. That is what the chronic bullying is about because the intimidation is what wins the day not their arguments. Its much easier to convince good people that the cost is too high to speak up than to spend time truly debating them.

Yes they do have that confusion but unfortunately many heterosexuals have that confusion too. I had a co-worker once confess he had during a drunken moment of weakness with a women he’d met at the bar the night before and he wanted my opinion on whether anal sex was cheating. I’m sorry I don’t care who you are its unclean and disgusting.

Excellent! It wont get you banned just maybe from the group. Who knows maybe they will entertain the debate. I’m going to call John Hopkins tomorrow and express my support for Ben Carson as I did for Dr. Angela McCaskill who was btw the reinstated due to the efforts of good people standing up.

He speaks the Truth.

Just plain Common Sense out of Wisdom.

He is educated—not indoctrinated into “group think”.

“In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” George Orwell.

We are living in a country where we have a “Ministry of Justice” (Wash.DC.)-—where “up is down”-—that is what the elite/power is telling us and if we who are educated question their lack of Reason....we will be targeted because that is what Marxist’s do-—they have to keep Truth out.

You have that right and “the truth” is the antiseptic for the things we stand against and they would have us all silent whether it be while unborn children are butchered, while sexual amorality leaves children in broken homes with broken futures and feeds government dependence, while those that build businesses and grow the economy find the fruits of their efforts stolen from them. The biggest weapon they have is our fear of what they might say about us when we stand against the darkness. I have gotten to the point that I don’t care. Faith means to me no fear of man.

These people want badly to build their smear campaign. In this case; that he was 'not allowed' to speak on his home 'base'. They must continue - as we know they will - to build up their false narrative per the who of Dr. Carson. Goes without saying; that they do not want to contend with Carson's moral authenticity; always preferring to impress on us; their own, inauthentic moral judgments.

With that; we can certainly feel/see; a communist/Marxist/Alynsky et al crafted MO cranking up; so as to bring down, Dr. Carson. So hope; as surgeon and healer; that the light, now shared by Dr. Carson, empowers him to heal/defeat the ignorance that infects those who carry the virus of Leftist dogma.

Meantime; am wondering just how 'warm the welcome' is; from our Repub-Elites (so called). Could be wrong; but am betting they are not at all comfortable seeing him garner such attention while he makes his rounds; not in hospital; but where a media audience can - and are - taking note of this man, who fearlessly; calmly; unobtrusively - all to say - humbly; speaks the truth. Even better; Dr. Carson, as well; speaks in typical humble fashion; truth to power. . .

I totally agree but I see this as a big opportunity to change the game. Dr. Carson didn’t have to speak out. He didn’t have to expose himself to the heat. I don’t care what the GOP political class thinks. I’m not one of them and I’ve never been one of them. What I care about is stopping this thought police tactic once and for all and the only way that is going to happen is to push back hard every time this kind of thing rears its head and use examples like Dr. Carson and Dr. Angela McCaskill and others to prove our most powerful point against SSM marriage which is that our very personal liberty and freedom of speech to even hold and express a traditional view of normalcy and marriage is threatened.

Every conservative media host worth his weight should be on top of this story and others as a clear example of what we can expect with gay marriage and increased gay political correctness.

Cheating on whom? His wife?

He and bill klintoon already knew the answer, oral sex, anal sex, vaginal sex... same result, different orifice.

Why didn't he ax his wife?

I hit their facebook page yesterday. At that time, the petition only had 22 ‘likes’ and many many comments in the negative. Heck, the entire page only had 124 followers. Not a whole lot of activity on it overall over the last year...I bet that will change. ;-)

Keep in mind that JHU wouldn’t allow a pro-life student union to form...said they couldn’t do ‘sidewalk education’, whatever that means. They are re-applying.

Even our esteemed medical schools have been infested...we have to take the fight to their front door.

Med students should know that & be the first to defend Dr. Carson.

As I said yesterday.

They’re doing very serious damage to society through the blacklisting of anyone who disagrees with them.

Art, literature, science, medicine you name it. If you disagree with the left on any subject they will give bad reviews or otherwise ostracize you regardless of the quality or validity of your work.

Ben Carson is one of the finest brain surgeons in the world and students at UofM are now calling for his speech there to be canceled because he doesn’t toe the hard left line. (Carson's speech was yesterday so it was too late to stop it)

These people are dragging us into the dark ages with their hate.


Imagine a world where Jonas Salk, Albert Einstein, or Henry Ford had been silenced because of their personal feelings on other issues.

As I said yesterday.......

Dr Carson’s message will be heard by more because he was not allowed to give the speech than if it was given. This thread and the similar conversation across the nation will have a larger impact than a speech that falls on a few unhearing ears.

Ben Carson’s speech at the University of Michigan was about whether Doctors should speak on things other than medicine.

Here’s the thing, though. He apologized for comparing homosexuality to bestiality. He has to learn to defend himself.

His comparison was right on target and he should never have apologized. I’m sick to death of the contrition which flows from people on our side.

Notice how the media reports this? Its reported as if the sentiment at John Hopkins is monolithic because a small group of liberal students is circulating a petition against him.

Did you read his apology? He did not retreat from his defense of marriage. If we cant stand in defense of him & take the opportunity to use this to generate backlash against ssm then we deserve to los on this and other issues.

I did read it. He apologized for comparing homosexuality with bestiality, but reiterated his defense of marriage, as you say.

That’s part of the problem, as I see it. Some conservatives will still defend marriage, but when it comes to the wrongness of homosexuality itself, they either keep silent, or are quick to show contrition if they let something slip. Dr. Carson was right to compare the two; they’re both unnatural perversions.

Part of the reason we’re about to be socked with something as unthinkable as sodomite marriage is because people lost the will and the courage to call homosexuality exactly what it is.

I am too old for “fear” of what they say about me and I am armed with knowledge and God.

But most people are so very afraid their friendships will be destroyed—even family relationships—because the Left has control over the Language-—and therefore, creates the “perceptions” of the ignorant. Most people are terrible ignorant, due to the unconstitutional public schools and they believe lies.

Education—truth-—is the enemy of the left. That is why Pot killed anyone who wore glasses. Ideas are dangerous and truth is powerful. PC is to shut down all debate of ideas-—and schools condition children to be conformists—think like they are told and the “group” think.

The internet is the most powerful tool-—the Matrix has been here for a hundred years.....we are feeling the final squeeze now and the Left is getting scared because truth is available now to the masses. They are working to shut down the internet and speech with “hate speech” codes (unconstitutional).

You make a good point and one that I’ve come around to myself. I believe we are on the verge of breaking free so to speak. I think one of the reasons that there is such a push by some of these leftist groups now is they realize that the window is short. Media is clearly becoming more individualized and within another decade the idea of buying only what you like and consuming from highly tailored sources will be even more dominate. The big papers will continue to lose influence as will the big networks. We will see even a greater push to control the media through a fairness doctrine but I believe that will become impossible. Also homeschooling is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds. So there is a possible light ahead.

There is a pendulum and also history can easily shift. Its going to get tough but people don’t like bullies and I have a feeling eventually things will be pushed too far whether through the vehicle of fiscal collapse or some other trigger. A lot of the left wing crap and soft thinking that we have to deal with would disappear in an instant under the right conditions.

I agree. They are scared——because the “truth” is impossible to shut down and there is power in truth.

AND because they are scared they are becoming desperate-—and extremely dangerous. They have no morality and are apt to do anything-—including killing millions of us. This war of Good and Evil has existed since the beginning of history though. It is nothing new-—it is just the technology is getting to the point of being very scary.

It scares me that we are losing touch with people like Dr. Ben Carson who are able to accurately identify Truth and wisdom in the midst of a slew of insidiously misleading propaganda. They are not bothering to speak out as much because the world is going in such an appallingly ignorant direction that the truly intelligent and aware consensus is becoming, “Why bother trying to fix a thoroughly corrupted state; where would one even begin to approach sharing light with minds of such loopy reasoning?” It’s like trying to verbally teach a clam that if he had eyes, he could see the color green... Anyway, I wish I could somehow share any strength I may have with him when he is confronted with sensational media rhetoric designed to purposely mislead and serve as stumbling blocks. The most we can hope to do at this point is stick to black and white objective facts that clearly back positions. IN any other case, things always turn into an opinion based argument where sides are chosen between the lesser of two supposed evils (one being over judgmental and the other being completely hedonistic). He should stick to: the institution of what we currently refer to as marriage, is one inextricably defined by certain specifics. The basis of his argument at this time should be one of proper classification and definition. If a new association between partners demands to be investigated, then do that and make provisions based on the NEW SET of criteria. This would be better than calling a house rental agreement, a constitutionally defined, “marriage,” between man and house, yaknow?!
