You knew it had to happen. As soon as conservatives embraced Ben Carson, who is black, the Left began its relentless assault on him. The latest attack comes from The Health and Human Rights Student Group at Johns Hopkins University. They have petitioned the university to disinvite Dr. Carson from being the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Class of 2013 commencement speaker because his “expressed values are incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins and [are] deeply offensive to a large proportion [of] our student body.”
Carson is a Professor of Neurosurgery, Oncology, Plastic Surgery and Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University.
This means they don’t like his views on homosexuality and homosexual marriage. He made it clear that marriage can’t be redefined by any group. And that includes a group that has perverted public opinion on the topic. Just because people who engage in same-sex sex want to define marriage in a new way does not mean that it’s the moral or rational thing to do. What if other groups want to redefine marriage in other ways? What was considered to be a moral perversion a generation ago is now thought to be a civil right.
The polygamists and the folks at NAMBLA will push the moral envelope in time. The gay bullies were critical Carson’s reference to bestiality. It was Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor who asked Ted Olson this question: “If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what State restrictions could ever exist?” That is the question, and Olson did not have an answer that satisfies. There is too much historical and legal precedence that shows that once a law is in place, there will be those who will force its legal and moral implications far beyond its original intent
Carson pointed this out, and, of course, liberals don’t want to hear it. Actually, they don’t want us to hear it. Anybody who makes the long-term connection must be silenced. Carson made the connection, and he was immediately attacked.
Being black made him doubly dangerous because he threatened the liberal narrative. Blacks are the property of liberals and the Democrat Party. They cannot leave the Plantation without permission. A prominent Black person who decides to leave the liberal plantation will be hunted down, and when caught will have to be hamstrung in some way.
If you ever saw the TV miniseries Roots, you know what I mean. John Amos who plays the adult Kunta Kinte who now goes by his slave name “Toby,” tried to escape to be free. His owners were tired of it. It gave the other slaves ideas and it cost the plantation money. The remedy was simple.
“After being recaptured during the last of his four escape attempts, the slave catchers give him a choice: he can be castrated or have his right foot cut off. He chooses to have his foot cut off, and the men cut off the front half of his right foot.”
His running days were over. Liberals can’t do this anymore, so they maim Blacks who want to escape their slave owners by denigration, shutting them out of the public discourse, and keeping them from communicating with impressionable young people on college campuses.
Liberals tried to castrate Dr. Carson last year when professors, alumni, and students — 500 of them — at Emory University wanted him disinvited. They were horrified that Dr. Carson questioned the theory of evolution.
They were not asking that Dr. Carson be disinvited, but only that some comments be made to “those students, their families, and the Emory Community” who “listen to his speech” that some mention be made of “the enormous positive impact of science on our lives and how that science rests squarely on the shoulders of evolution.”
What a joke. Here is a world renowned neurosurgeon who supposedly doesn’t know the positive impact science has had on our lives? These guys are scared to death that some students might begin to question the Darwinian dogmatism.
It’s no different at Johns Hopkins. As smart as these kids are, they are “opinion swallowers.” G.A. Kergut describes writes in his book The Implications of Evolution:
“The undergraduate of today . . . will gladly devour opinions and views that he does not properly understand in the hope that he may later regurgitate them during one of his examinations. Regardless of the his subject, be it Engineering, Physics, English or biology, he will have faith in theories that he only dimly follows and will call upon various authorities to support what he does not understand.”1
These young men and women need acceptance from their peers. They can’t leave their own corner of the Liberal Plantation for fear of being hunted down by the people who open and close the gates to advancement in good jobs and social prestige.
