Dr. Ben Carson, the conservative retired pediatric neurosurgeon and the frequent guest on Fox News, is now signed up as a “contributor” with the right-wing propaganda network. And with his statement today, he appears to be warming up nicely for his new gig.
Speaking at the Value Voters Summit, which is always a smorgasbord of wacky anti-Obama statements, made to the delight of a crowd filled with incurable cases of Obama Derangement Syndrome, the good doctor said this:
Obamacare is the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery
Wow, it’s barely 10 days since Obamacare kicked in as the law of the land, and blacks are back to picking cotton for their white masters in the South? Or hell, it must be worse than blacks being forced to go to separate schools, bathrooms, restaurants, etc.
That must be why thousand and thousands of people have signed up for it, right? Surely, they are all suicidal masochistic maniacs for doing that. All those people with pre-existing conditions who could not get insured by private insurance companies have no idea what they are in for. Soon, they will be confined to dog pens and fed one meal a day, because after all, Obamacare is the worst thing since slavery. And those death panels! Be sure to say goodbye now to all of your elderly loved ones, because they are doomed to disappear one day soon, thanks to Obamacare’s death panels.
Carson went on to (gulp) elaborate further. “In a way, it is slavery, because it is making all of us subservient to the government.” He went on to tell his doting audience that Obamacare “was never about health care, it was about control.”
Then Carson, for added scary effect, quotes noted Marxist Vladimir Lenin, who said, “Socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialized state.”
Let’s remind Carson that Obamacare is NOT socialized medicine. Last time we checked, the private health insurance companies were all still in business, and doing just fine. In fact, their stock values have skyrocketed this year, and they have been raking in record profits.
Carson will fit right in at Fox News, where his hyperbole will go unchecked, hanging out with the likes of Sean Hannity, Steve Doocy, Megyn Kelly, and all the rest of the so-called “fair and balanced” windbags.
