Ben Carson: Michael Brown Died Because He Lacked A Father Figure, Political Correctness

Ben Carson seems to be convinced that “political correctness” is to blame for Michael Brown’s death, and made the case yesterday on Washington Times Radio that Brown died due to the “hypersensitive” climate of American politics.

He told host Andy Parks that political correctness is distracting people from addressing “real problems” like teen pregnancy and “all of those kids who are born into poverty and will live in poverty and in many cases will end up without a father figure in their life and don’t know how to respond to authority and end up being killed like Michael Brown.”

Carson, who has built a political career by regularly arguing that he is losing his right to free speech because people criticize his political views and that he is facing Nazi-style persecution, said “hypersensitive” people who manufacture claims about how their rights are under attack are ruining America.

Carson later said the “agitators” and “criminals” in Ferguson need to be punished and the real lesson is that people should “teach your children to respect authority.”

Ironically, a few months ago Carson praised the “outstanding people” who flocked to the Bundy ranch in Nevada to assist in the lawless standoff with law enforcement, saying that it is high time for Americans to “stand up against the government” and stave off looming martial law.

 It is only fair that he run, isn't it?  You got your half black, affirmative action crack smoking token.  Now we need a shot at a decent one.

So who is that guy on the tv 24/7 next to mrs Brown crying about his sons death....the milk man?!?!

What killed Brown was 6 shots fired by a scared cop 20 feet away with a gun on an unarmed young man.It was the last 2 fatal shots that ended his life.The one in his eye and the last one the top of his head while he fell.

Oh Ben, did you forget your childhood? Who exactly raised you Ben? 

The hypocrisy from Ben Carson on this makes me sad. Ben, you aren't the same person I met back in the early 90's.

What does Carson know about Brown's childhood or how he was raised or anything else about him?  Nothing. He reduces Brown to a stereotype and makes assumptions. How helpful.

You just hit a new low with this. How can you lie with such ease and still pretend to us that you're such a,"good Christian woman"?
If I were you, I'd be looking out for bolts of righteous lightning coming down from the heavens to smite you ,your hypocrisy,your lying .
God wants us to be truthful.
