Dr. Ben Carson on Government Intimidation: “Think About Nazi Germany”

By Susan D. Harris

There comes a time when people with values simply have to stand up. Think about Nazi Germany. Most of those people did not believe in what Hitler was doing. But did they speak up? Did they stand up for what they believe in? They did not, and you saw what happened. And if you believe that same thing can’t happen again, you’re very wrong…But we’re not going to let it happen.

– Dr. Ben Carson

In a jaw-dropping twist of pabulum-puking progressive spin, Dr. Ben Carson was maligned across the internet and elsewhere for asking the tough questions.

When interviewing Dr. Carson about his recent remarks, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly asked him:

So if you mention Nazi’s, you know you’re going to get hammered. But what you said right at the end there intrigued me a bit. You said if you believe it can’t happen again…see I don’t believe that Nazism could happen in the U.S.A….nor could Communism happen here. Do you disagree with me?

Dr. Carson went on to explain that if people do not speak up for their beliefs, they will be trampled. He added that buzz words that supposedly shouldn’t be spoken, like “Nazi’s” and “slavery” are examples of political correctness that he believes is a “bunch of crap.”

The best point Dr. Carson made was when he said he was most worried about the populace remaining silent and “not expressing what they believe because they’re afraid. They’ve been intimidated.” At this point, O’Reilly jumped in and asked, “By whom?” (If you hadn’t taken your blood pressure meds at this point, you needed to leave the room.)

“By the government,” Dr. Carson said, surprised by the question.

“How?” O’Reilly quipped, (as if he himself hadn’t reported on many examples of intimidation, including the IRS scandal.) Dr. Carson answered:

By the government, and by the media…the P.C. police, you say something…this is a perfect example. You’re using an example of how people would not speak up — they try to turn the argument away from that because they know it’s true…But rather than talk about that, they want to divert the issue to something else.

Dr. Ben Carson gave his comments at a fundraiser for an Oregon GOP Senate candidate. The full text of his comments discussed how the secular progressive movement wanted to “fundamentally change who we are,” and part of that entailed “keeping a blanket of silence over the majority.”

Immediately after his speech, he was excoriated by websites and news outlets across the country for simply mentioning Nazis.

Never mind that graveyards across the world are teaming with Nazi victims. Never mind that but for thousands of brave souls and gallons of spilt blood we might be speaking German. Now, in true fascist tradition, no one is allowed to mention the world “Nazi” unless they are spinning history for the History Channel.

Is it a coincidence that society waited for most of our WWII heroes to die off before they decided that any reference to “Nazi’s” was politically incorrect?

It begs the question: What did Americans die for? Did they die so we could forget the tactics and oppression of an ideology that nearly destroyed the world?

Progressives aside for a moment, does O’Reilly not know that U.S. lawmakers gathered on Capitol Hill as recently as last summer to discuss ways to combat an increase in Nazism across the globe? Does he not know that 20,000 American citizens attended a Nazi rally at Madison Square Garden in 1939? Are we really a completely different people?

The answer is no, we are the same vulnerable people. Nazism may not currently be America’s biggest threat, but we have allowed ourselves to be taken over by progressives that espouse the same zealotry, irrationality, vitriol and mass suppression as the goose-stepping tyrants of decades past. The ideology may be different; but when the time comes when we are maligned or ridiculed for legitimately asking whether those in power are using tactics similar to the enemy our fathers and grandfathers died to spare us from…we know that our future is very, very bleak.

Conservatives Dismissed Birther Concerns To Tackle Obama On “Serious Issues” – How’s That Working Out?

By Susan D. Harris

In a recent Freedom Outpost article  by Tim Brown, we learned that Obama’s presidential eligibility appeal will  finally be ruled on by Judge Roy Moore and the Alabama Supreme Court.

As we look back, we see a long road strewn with the wreckage of a divided  Conservative base. We see some Conservatives that can be likened to the kindly  driver who, in a quest to prove his generosity and fairness, waves a car into  traffic and directly into an accident — then drives on feeling no responsibility  for the crash.

In the same way, Conservatives who refused to acknowledge there was a problem  with Obama’s birth certificate have continued to feel no responsibility for  failing to defend Article II of the Constitution; and no remorse for attacking  those who did. We watched them cite newspaper birth announcements, and a short  form certificate, as proof enough. Eventually they accepted a long form  certificate that experts and scientists agree was faked. “It’s not a winning  issue,” was their mantra. Liberals so successfully mocked so-called “birthers,” that many Conservatives slunk off embarrassed and distancing themselves from  those who continued to assert the issue had grave Constitutional ramifications.

Many of us knew that the Democrats long-awaited, unblemished red heifer had  been groomed to take our country into Socialism within two terms, but  unfortunately for everyone, we couldn’t unite to stand and say, “You shall not  pass.”

Five years into the presidency and steeped in scandals and corruption, those  who scoffed at “birthers” got what they wanted. They wanted to tackle Obama on  the “serious” issues. The point of those who could see through the lies  surrounding his birth certificate was that they didn’t want to tackle  him on the serious issues. They never wanted him to get that far because they  feared when he did, it would be too late to save the country.

To the Conservatives who wanted to “take the high road” and engage Obama on  his own terms and merits, now is your chance. Try to expose his abuse of the  Patriot Act or peel back the layers of lies on Benghazi. Try to get beyond the “Cincinnati office” and find who was really responsible for the IRS targeting of  so many Conservative groups that it may have played even a small role in the  outcome of the 2012 election.

Carol Davidson, the head of integration and media targeting for the 2012  Obama campaign, spoke on the Fox News special Your Secret’s Out.  Speaking in generalities of “the cave,” a central Obama campaign hub that  manipulated the voting public, she said:  “The cave was where we put the  analysts…Multiple analysts were in that room,” doing “more like top secret work  right? So, you know, you don’t want…people coming by seeing what was on the  screens of everyone. And we actually, during the election, didn’t want people to  know that the group even existed.” Why the secrecy? Could it be because they  knew Americans wouldn’t appreciate their President dissecting and evaluating  them in a way that no elected official has ever stooped to  before?

In the cave, they worked on determining who the persuadable voters were in  the battleground states. They successfully blitzed television networks that  Republicans dismissed as irrelevant. Meanwhile the IRS was standing on the necks  of Conservative groups who naively thought they were contenders in a fair  fight.

Davidson developed something called the “optimizer,” to let her know what  television shows the target audience was watching and when. Obligingly, cable  companies sold out our privacy to assist. “We were able to get the data from our  vendors, ingest the data into our system, and at the same time pair that data to  the voter file data,” Davidson said. John Roberts, host of the show, told her  some people might find it creepy that there “was that much data out there about  them,” only to learn it was used in a political campaign. In a valley girl  accent dripping with the words “like” and “right?” Davidson answered, “To me at  the end of the day you get e-mails or direct mail sent to your house all the  time that like, you didn’t know the person who sent them to you and they still  knew your name…Is it just a difference, or is it really a concern about invading  your life?”

Note to Ms. Davidson: Like, it really is a concern about invading our lives.  Right?

Maybe I’m just feeling too parental, but when I see young women like Carol  Davidson and Holly Paz, the IRS supervisor who issued rulings on tax-exempt  groups, I can’t help but feel like these women needed to be sent to their rooms  without supper and had their cell phone privileges revoked, long before they  acquired any position of power.

As a woman, I am embarrassed by the likes of Lois Lerner, Victoria Nuland,  Susan Rice, Jen Psaki, Samantha Power, Carol Davidson, Holly Paz, and yes,  Hillary Clinton.  These volunteers mustered into Obama’s army are helping him  fundamentally transform (aka destroy) the country they are leaving to their own  children. I just hoped women would be smarter than  that.

It’s hard to believe that Sarah Palin — a constitutionally articulate,  intelligent, God-fearing woman with exceptional leadership skills — is merely a  Fox News Contributor. I fear the day may never come when Palin, and others like  her, will wrest our country from the mindless cast of Glee, who view us as  experimental tadpoles in their Progressive petri dish.

Many Conservatives left the birth certificate issue nicely covered in the  litter box. And while they spent their time attacking their fellow  Conservatives, young Progressives like Davidson and Paz were using their  Machiavellian skills to ensure they’d be ready when Conservatives decided it was  time to tackle the “serious issues.”

The fact remains that neither our citizens, nor our government or media  properly vetted a presidential candidate who had a childhood and upbringing that  would have raised red flags at the Behavioral Analysis Unit on Criminal Minds. 

Many Independents, Democrats, (and some Conservatives) are just beginning to  realize the scope of Obama’s lies. With this much scandalous water under the “Hope and Change” bridge, the fact that a president forged/faked his birth  certificate may actually be a small blot on the American landscape by the time  he’s done dividing and conquering it. The sad part is — it didn’t have to be  this way.
