Carson: ‘What you See In Communist Countries [Is] What We’ve Got Now In America’
It’s these kinds of statements that renders someone unfit to be president of the United States.
The retired neurosurgeon made the comments while answering a question by Iowa conservative radio show host Jan Mickelson on “Section 8 housing regulations” that allegedly stipulate that Eastern Iowans “have to recruit from Chicago their poverty-afflicted individuals to bring them to Iowa in order to qualify for Section 8 Housing.”
Carson said the regulations were indicative of “what you see in communist countries.”
“This is just an example of what happens when we allow the government to infiltrate every part of our lives,” Carson said. “This is what you see in communist countries where they have so many regulations encircling every aspect of your life that if you don’t agree with them, all they have to do is pull the noose. And this is what we’ve got now.”

Yeah. Commie countries allow easy purchase of guns like us, ending collective bargaining from sea to shining sea, and endless campaign seasons by nincompoops.
God bless America.

Always comes back to the same question.
What is worse?
If they actually believe this crap? Or they know better and count on an audience who want to believe in this crap??

There is no way this idiot ever passed any of those exams he needed to become a neurosurgeon. He has a smart twin who badly needed some cash.

This guy says so stupid things that you wouldn’t think he’s actually a doctor.
He wants to be President?
In my book, he is fully qualified to be the president of the dogcatchers association, if there’s one.

I wouldn’t let this piece of merde within a kiometer of my dog.

This was the problem: “After limiting eligibility for the program, the City executed a voucher issuance freeze, so as to decrease the size of the program by roughly two hundred vouchers, and conducted a significant purge of the wait list,” HUD’s release said. “Purging removed 90% of the applications from African Americans in 2010. The new policies left only elderly or disabled out of state residents eligible for the program.” http://www.kwwl.com/story/25257161/2014/04/15/dubuque-agrees-to-correct-discriminatory-housing-policies

I recently saw a car with a Carson for President bumper sticker. I stayed as far away as possible thinking the driver had to be an escapee from a nuthouse.

Ironic comment coming from the guy who would mandate that government workers be forced to spy on each other.

I love how “Communist” is such a scare-term for these nutjobs. They don’t only want “their country” back in the 1950s — when ol’ Doc Ben here would’ve been a doctor of shoeshines or Pullman service — but they want the world back in the 1950s, too, because that’s the last time in world history they were able to understand anything.

this blown out lightbulb wouldn’t know a communist from a six foot tall mouse in dizzyland.

Well that’s just not true
I used to live in a communist country and if you were that poor you’d just be out on the street begging, there is no section 8 housing
That’s the way it should be

If this raving extremist lunatic-fringe extremist (yeah, with his medical degree) was right the noose would have been pulled on him a long time ago. And I have to honestly say it wouldn’t cause me any grief.
