Buzzfeed politics revealed this interview from 2012 where Ben Carson said political correctness makes us like Nazi Germany.

…Carson said in February 2012 that “political correctness” has caused Americans to fall “silent, very much like the people in Nazi Germany were silent.”

The now-retired neurosurgeon drew the comparison to Nazi Germany during an interview at Patrick Henry College, in the course of explaining how “we’ve dumbed things down” in the American education system. He noted that in “international surveys looking at the ability of students in multiple countries to solve math and science problems,” “we rank right near the bottom,” then contended that the country’s evolution into “a politically correct situation” “starting at about the ’30s” precipitated this intellectual decline…

Carson then claimed that “our whole society” hasn’t degenerated to that level, but that “the loudest voices and particularly the media has tried to pretty much force” political correctness on people, before explaining that “exactly the same thing will happen to the freedoms that we enjoy in America” that happened under the Third Reich.
