The Left is Circling
the Wagons against
Dr. Ben Carson

American Thinker, by Phillip Cowan

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/23/2013 8:40:32 AM

The Progressive hit media are frantically circling the wagons, probably formulating a potent Alinsky Rule # 5 offense against sage Ben Carson. Just yesterday, Media Matters went into full attack mode. It appears the leftists were blindsided by the transparency and unassuming integrity of this gifted brain surgeon. No doubt they are embarrassed by their previous sycophantic accolades heralding his exceptional accomplishments in his chosen field of pediatric neurosurgery.

Good article, but it must have had a word count limit... The article stops abruptly with what reads like a truncated last paragraph that should have been developed or dropped.

Dr. Ben is a timely, emerging national treasure. However, it´s in a way sad that someone must live such a powerful and also such a squeeky clean life to survive on the Right. We must push back much stronger on the Lefty demonetization merchants because there simply aren´t enough clean, powerful spokesmen like Carson to get the job done. That strong push back must include Messers Letterman, Leno and Stewart, and SNL. They are devilishly effective with their ridicule, passed off as some kind of humor. Watching them from some very hot place, Saul Alinksy is smiling as they destroy good people.

Incidentally, Wayne Newton knows the power of this late night ridicule. For some time, Johnny Carson mercilessly made sport of Wayne Newton in his nightly monologues. Mr. In exasperation, Newton tells of paying an in person visit to Carson in Burbank to put a stop to it. And it stopped. Immediately.

Hell hath no fury like a Leftist scorned. The character assassination of Dr. Carson will soon begin.

How dare he deviate from the party line? Only a wicked, false, corrupt and conniving scoundrel could fail to concur that Leftists have the sublimest of motives, know everything, and are always right, making disagreement with them an abuse of free speech(like shouting fire in a crowded theater) or even, perhaps, a true hate crime.

Leftists are great champions of diversity, tolerance, inclusiveness, fairness, justice, social and economic justice etc. etc. etc. But they do have a limit to the amount of nonsense they are prepared to put up with.

It would, of course, be different if there were any good, honest, sane, moral reason for someone like Dr. Carson to disagree with Leftist politics. That is a matter of free speech, which Leftists revere.

But denying and continuing deny obvious truths such as Leftist ideology is not free speech. It is pernicious, sometimes willful error. Only bad people engage in such behavior.

The left are not good at governing, but extremely talented at demonizing, castrating and lying about anyone who disagrees with them whom they perceive as a threat to their power.

Give ´em hell, Dr. Carson. You may just be the ´brick wall´ they will head-butt.

We need the GOP to start calling out these liberals who hate America, and hate accomplishment.

Reagan wasn´t afraid to use the word liberal and Democrat together, but today´s GOP leaders seem to be couching their words.

They want to include Congress which includes them when they need to point the finger of failure at the 6 long years of liberal Democrat control of the Senate, and the failed 4 years under Nancy Pelosi.

The economy started to turn somewhat only AFTER the GOP took control of the House.

Bill Clinton only had a balanced budget AFTER the GOP took control of the House.

We need to step it up and support those brave enough to run for office, and perhaps, save this country! I´ll begin by posting this article on FB, planting the seed with the lo-fos that what they will be hearing about Dr. Carson is not necessarily true.

Typical background would include 4 years of undergraduate work in a specified pre-medical curriculum with stellar GPA and outstanding scores on the MCAT (medical school entrance exam), four years of medical school, three-four years general surgery residency, 3 years fellowship training in neurosurgery, perhaps additional year in pediatric neurosurgery. Then, you start your career. Very tough to paint a pediatric neurosurgeon as an "idiot". Doesn´t mean they will not try, but then, who is the idiot?

That didn´t take long. They must have gotten word that conservative America wants Dr. Carson to run for office or something.

If Carson were not a threat to the Left, there would be no reason to "circle the wagons".

It is to wonder...

#10 You are right on!

Even more disgusting to me than the rats doing their expected trashing of our best candidates are those on the so-called right falling for it.

There are right wing people, maybe some even on this site, who still trash Sarah. Well if Sarah were POTUS we´d have a chance to climb out of the ever worsening disaster we´re in. If Cain hadn´t been trashed we might actually get a government we taxpayers have a chance to afford without ruining our own bank accounts.

Instead we have the worst government in our history, Mao and Stalin would approve of the takeover process that will just get worse. And meanwhile some on the right have their noses in the air sniveling "she quit her job as governor", "he probably had girlfriends" , "he´s a cultist". I say look for someone perfect in heaven, not here.

I´m no longer afraid for my country - virtually impossible to see us reclaiming what we once were. Now I´m afraid for myself and my family.

lead by example! Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker faced horrific odds and the people of the state backed him up. He had death threats, which would have landed a Rep. in jail, but because it was a teacher she was found innocent. The Capitol had fecal matter spread about and at the doors of the Rep. representatives. Urine, markers, foul
and crude language was common in the hallways. Posters, protesters, eggs, nastiness was used. Lies and intimidations were everywhere. But the citizens of the state held fast. It´s time to push back!
Good men need our influence. Obama and his staff are great pretenders and inferior when it comes to serving this nation. Roll up your sleves and get involved. I did!

Dr. Carson is intelligent and articulate. The problem is like Romney if he expounds on any topic, you name it, he opens himself to the grandson of the second worst president in history. While people of low quality, or aged, like Schumer, Warren, Feinstein, Boxer, Franken, Biden, etc, are free to engage mouth with no thought with a James Carter cheering on selective/continuous nonsense.

First, I think Herman was brought down by somebody in the republicrat establishment, probably at the urging of Willard. At the AFP convention, Cain got a standing ovation while Willard got tepid leftovers. And nobody believed a word he said anyway.
Second, Ben Carson will probably get hung up exactly where he said ANYBODY will get hung up; in an IRS audit. It´s probably already started. They´ll overcharge him like they did with Schwartz in an effort to silence him. He´s undoubtedly self controlled enough not to kill himself, but the distraction will be mind numbing. How does one defend oneself against spurious charges brought by an organization with unlimited resources??
Third, Dr. Carson better hire some really good security, like Seals or Spetsnaz level dudes. If the left can´t ruin him somehow, I have no doubt they´ll kill him, and we will have lost possibly our last hope.

Dr. Carson is a gift from God. But, how many other Dr. Carsons have been aborted or destroyed by a corrupt and disgraceful education and welfare system that is the Democrat hallmark of the so-called War on Poverty over these last 40 years? The waste in human capital is sickening. Moreover, the few that survive this Democrat holocaust and go on to be successful are often conservative are then destroyed by the Alinsky media and political machines. And we Conservatives and Republicans stand by and let it happen.

When will we go to war over this? The Tea Party began the battle, only to be out gunned and has now fizzled because of internal strife. We outnumber the corrupt Alinskyites, so why can´t we organize? Perhaps Dr. Carson will be the catalyst. And as others have noted, we cannot allow this man to be destroyed by these degenerates.

Dr Carson is a brilliant neurosurgeon who would be better suited as secretary of HHS ,
because unlike Sebelius ,
he´s actually familiar with health care and medical issues.
The right has begun to treat running for office ,
especially that of president ,
as if it´s a popularity contest.
" I like this person, let´s make them president " is not a winning formula for nominating candidates.
For both parties.
Unfortunately ,the Democrats can get away with violating that standard because they control the media .
It´s unfair to put the esteemed Dr Carson or the honorable Justice Thomas in the same category
as Herman Cain or Sarah Palin.
Cain and Palin are responsible for their own troubles.
The media did not make Cain have a 13 yr relationship with Ginger White or force Palin to do silly reality shows or
make both of them repeatedly fumble legitimate questions.

The ethically-challenged statist politicos who still continue to attack & destroy effective conservative voices in the political arena, including that of the insprirational character of this good and accomplished man, just may not get away with their vile & now routine tactic this time as too many know about Dr. Carson´s personal integrity and selfless life´s work of helping people. Dr. Carson is a good man who merits the American voters´ attention & consideration.

Who would attack such an exemplary, brilliant & compassionate American citizen personally, but Boomtown´s dem statist pol, (& their media), who continue their refusal to intelligently debate the major issues currently challenging the USA? The dem pols refuse the debate because they cannot justify their socialism when it has been proved over & over again in other countries that tyranny fails every time is is tried!!!

The dems have used their routine character assination schtick SO MANY times before, voters SHOULD BE aware of their ruthless lies & scams, but any who still aren´t aware should be so informed by every media venue available to the more ethical & accomplished voices such as Dr. Carson´s than is ever the norm in lefty/lib/statist-corrupted lsm/alphabets-npr/pbs/hollyweird.

Voters want the facts, not any more of the usual spin & lies from the unethical dems´ media!

Republicans have become masters of the circular firing-squad. It´s time to change the dance step.

Whether or not Dr. Carson were to become a candidate is not important at this point. What is important is that Conservatives, Patriots, who stand on the front lines know that we have the proverbial "intestinal fortitude" to stand with them, and not fall by the wayside and creep into the corners when the going gets rough.

We know all about Alinsky. We must disseminate information, truth.

All totalitarian despots are the same: they can not tolerate opposition, word or action, because the truth exposes their fraudulence.

Conservatives, those who love liberty, are the truly tolerant ones; but this intellectual equanimity contributes to a sort of weakness, namely a reluctance to fight for and defend their own convictions.

We can learn from these Dem/Left petty tyrants without becoming like them.

American Thinker´s Philip Cowan is a semantic lying, protecting coward.

Look at his first sentence, "The Progressive hit media are frantically circling the wagons, probably formulating a potent Alinsky Rule # 5 offense". Referring to Alinsky, a communist by every definition, and calling the retrogressive media, the "progressive hit media". Isn´t ANYbody in the New Media going to wake up and call these destroyers what they really are? They are all socialists, collectivists,
totalitarians, commies, pinkos, fellow travelers, authoritarians, statists, and influential writers like Cowan call them the cover-up words, "progressive" or "liberal", which they are not. One of the main reasons we are losing the war for freedom is our allowing these despicable droids to disguise themselves with the lovely names of liberal and progressive. Cowan is not stupid. But he is definitely afraid to call them what they are. He´s not alone. Most talk radio, all of Fox TV, even Breitbart, and too many New Media fighting blogs, all call these monsters by these wrong names. Simple reasons, (1.) they are either too scared to break the politically correct patterns set for them to follow, (2.) they are too dumb to figure it out, or, like Cowan, (3.) they are afraid to take charge and call them the despicable destructive titles and labels that they actually ARE. Cowan is a semantic word choosing coward. And he´s recklessly helping the other side, the dictator side of despotism.

#36, Palin didn´t do any silly reality shows. She did a show about Alaska and that was LONG after she was demonized and destroyed by the left and establishment GOP.

#12, But they are NOT "liberal Democrats". They are LEFTIST Democrats. Liberal is still not really a pejorative term. Because of its classical meaning. The leftist Dems should NEVER be called liberal, especially by us. It only helps them continue to mislead people into believing their motives are good. When in truth, most of today´s conservatives are truly the "liberals" in the classic sense of the word. We are the true champions of freedom, liberty, and equality under the law.

Let´s please stop using the word "liberal"!!

We should not be helping the left further their propaganda.

On the Sean Hannity show last week, Sean brought up the fact that the Left will seek to discredit him.

Dr. Carson calmly said he has no skeletons in his closet.

I think perhaps the same quiet determination that this man displayed in his successful quest to become a neurosurgeon will serve Dr. Carson well, whatever he chooses to do.

He is NOT toast, no matter what anyone says about him. I believe him immune to any criticism and he will be the "toast of the town" should he decide to run for any political office. It will drive the Democrats crazy to have a member of a minority race that is untouchable run for office. Mr Cain should have never given up, in my opinion.

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members.

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
