The Five’s Beckel ‘Infuriated’ By
Dr. Carson’s ‘Racist White Liberal’
Comments: ‘You Are Not That Important’

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/2/2013 7:16:46 PM

Tuesday afternoon, Fox News’ The Five took on Dr. Ben Carson‘s controversial interview with conservative radio host Mark Levin, in which Carson called his “white liberal” detractors “the most racist people there are.” Those words in particular got under host Bob Beckel‘s skin and he let Carson know just how “infuriating” he found them. Recalling his “liberal” father, who he said was arrested 57 times during the Civil Rights Movement, Beckel attacked Carson for minimizing the left’s fight for racial equality. “For Dr. Carson to make that kind of statement shows he doesn’t know what he’s

Comments:
I post this not because of Beckel, who behaved as usual hatefully and rudely that was completely unnecessary. Dana Perino is the one who surprised me. She has the audacity to say Dr. Carson has “burned through so much of his credibility by appearing so often on cable news and talk radio." Really?? I thoroughly enjoy hearing what he has to say. Who made her the arbiter of who decides what he says or does?

Maybe Dana didn´t think it behooved Dr. Carson to visit with Mark Levin on his radio show.

I agree with Dana Perino. I think over exposure could prove harmful to Dr. Carson. Especially by appearing so often with Hannity.

Bickel says that his father was arrested 57 times.

Maybe he should have stayed at home being a model for his son and his son would have grown up with a little more respect for all!!!

´´You Are Not That Important?!!´´ ...No, Beckel...

Need you be reminded, Dr. Carson is just the best pediatric BRAIN SURGEON in the country, & probably in the entire world. He is VERY important, as his entire accomplished, compassionate, and faithful life testifies.

Anyone, and I do wish to emphasis Anyone who questions the logic of a conservative going to the right wing media literally needs to have their head examined. To even contemplate such a thing strikes me as the absolute height of stupidity. The instant the so called wisest among us start to embrace conservatives the sooner we can start winning some elections. The choice is yours. Rush, Hannity, Beck, Levin, all of their jobs would disappear tomorrow if the media was remotely fair.


P.S. Bob Beckel is a good representative of the Democrat party.

Bob Beckel infuriated me enough to stop watching FOX News. He has poisoned that network. It seemed like almost every time I turned on FOX News there was the loudmouth Bob Beckel on some kind of Liberal diatribe.
Since I gave up FOX News there was no reason to watch TV anymore so I dropped Time Warner cable and don´t bother to watch local TV. Mostly garbage and wall-to-wall commercials on TV both local and cable.

Dr. Carson needs to fall back on some of his other talks. I saw him years ago talk about all the inventions black Americans were responsible for. It was a great talk. He´s given great talks on education and affirmative action. He demonstrates how blacks excel when they´re held to high standards and fail when standards are lowered. He has to avoid letting cable news pidgeon hole him. Sean Hannity is not his friend. He has a great message, but he has to control it.

What you are witnessing is the application of Alinsky´s rules for radicals, #13...on steroids.

RULE 13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

The problem with this tactic used against Carson is it leaves Libs with a huge hole in their argument/attack. That hole is their own rule #12

RULE 12: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

By attacking Dr. Carson they leave no solution to his goodness and truth...the Libs are left as hateful and spiteful and nasty as they always have been but now it is extremely obvious the Libs are simply trying to destroy a good man that simply disagrees with them.

I’m not a doctor nor do I play one on TV. However, inasmuch as Bob Beckel has admittedly ingested all sorts of liquid and solid substances, some of them illegal, over several years, I wonder if any of them have residually affected his judgment and capacity to reason. It’s obvious he possesses a short fuse. It doesn’t seem to take much to get him riled up.

Two things occur to me. If Dr. Carson is a strong voice for conservatism/Constitutionalism then why would we want to limit his exposure? Hasn´t one of the major complaints of the Republican party been that the conservative message is not getting out? If, on the other hand, Dr. Carson is a time bomb, then the more exposure he gets, the sooner we will see if there is a problem.

Or perhaps the real concern is that Dr. Carson - like some others who have been accused of being in the spotlight too much - has not yet been approved to speak and he may say some things that cause the Republican leadership as much discomfort as as he did Obama, at the Prayer Breakfast.

Hey Bob, Dr. Carson has saved more people in one day than you have saved in your lifetime.

Dr. Carson is enviably MORE important than you, and the circle of friends, acquaintances, you run in. Probably combined.

Bob, truth be told. Liberals think in black and white skin color, where conservatives think morals and character are the means in which to judge someone.

I mute Fox everytime the camera goes to Beckel, I can´t listen to his bloviating any longer.

NEWS FLASH for Beckel...and Perino: "You Are Not That Important."

Dr. Carson is nobody´s puppet. Sure, the WSJ prematurely elevated him to presidential contender, and a lot of smart (and frankly, desperate) people hopped on that nonexistent bandwagon.

Does he expect God to "grab him by the collar?" He´s a believer so he´ll accept ANY calling from God.

Has he "burned through" any of his credibility? Au contraire, every time he opens his mouth he enhances it.

The presidential handicapper, Perino, may be correct in her conditional logic statement: "If he is interested in running in 2016, he would be better off laying low for a while." But let´s examine an alternative explanation for his limelight-seeking...

Dr. Ben Carson is in it for the money.

[Think about why you were so shocked by that statement.] I´ll not go into any of the reasons that that was a silly, indefensible reaction.

I will say only this: I would rather give my money to Dr. Carson than boatloads of others. For, aside from living well, which he has earned, the man writes books telling young people why they should love this country...and (with his wife) is responsible for the Carson Scholars Fund ("Discovering Promise...Rewarding Excellence")

I saw Dr. Carson and heard his statement in regards to certain types of relationships practiced by some members of American society. He is a Doctor and speaks about things frankly and openly. No euphemisms or beating around the bush. His point was that marriage is between a male and a female, It´s been that way for thousands of years and he disagrees with any effort to change that fact. I understand his point and so does anyone else who cares to honestly critique his words. Beckel doesn´t appear to be a critical thinker so I dismiss his opinion out of hand. As for Perino...she is a mixed bag and i usually ignore a lot of what she has to say. Moderates cannot be relyed on. They´re too busy taking the high ground or trying to go-along to get-along. I watch the Five and the best they have to offer is Andrea Tantaros. I can pretty much know where she will come out on any given topic. She is a conservative with intelligence, commonsense and spunk. BTW, Obama´s in-your-face 360 over-exposure seems to have worked for him.

I first muted Beckel´s drivel ...then I changed the channel ... then I switched back and listened to Dana and the others for a minute or so ... then I gave up completely when Beckel chimed in again and went to local news.

This guy adds nothing to Fox´s fair and balanced approach to news and commentary.

He´s a monotone nattering nabob of negativity; in other words, a supremely boring member of the effete corps of impudent liberal snobs.

I laugh at how brilliant and important the Dana Perinos and Bob Beckels think they are. I hardly think Dana is concerned that Dr. Carson might hurt his electoral chances. GOP moderates are happy to supply the banana peel to help discredit any rising star conservative without his "approved by RNC" stamp. I doubt Dr. Carson is running for office. He doesn´t have to - look at the press his every speech now generates. FANTASTIC move, Dr. Carson for going on Mark´s show. Dr. Carson recognizes another brave brilliant conservative when he sees one.

Two doctors in the news of late.

One is conservative and a true American success story. A man of principle and a man of accomplishment. A brilliant man desperate parents turn to heal their children when all hope is lost.

The other doctor performs the holiest sacrament in the Church of Liberalism -- abortion. He is on trial for murdering helpless infants.

Guess which doctor is all but ignored by the media and guess which doctor the media attacks and vilifies.

Me and Beckel are about the same age. I have heard him physically threaten Conservatives in the past. I would love to get in the same room with the Proud Socialist Bob and climb up one side and down the other. He is a punk and a bully. He´s still trying to act like the 1960´s Liberals are fighting the good fight against racism, when today they are the worst Racist around, on that point Dr. Carson has nailed them and Blubbery Bob knows it.

As far as Dana Perino, I think she is a closet democrat and always has been. Tries to play both sides and it´s tiring. At least Greg Gutfeld tells it like it is!!! Dumb show anyway.

Leftists need victims to champion and advocate for in order to feel good about themselves. They tend to react violently when attempts are made to take their victims away from them. This is because much of the Leftist´s identity and self-image and sense of worth and power is wrapped up in being a hero akin to a medieval knight in a quest against evil and to defend and comfort victims. If there were no victims, Leftists would have to invent them. As a matter of fact, that is exactly what Leftism does: it excels in the social construction and perpetuation of victims as human fuel and fodder for Leftist egos. There is something vampiric and dreadful about this parasitism masquerading as piety. This narcissistic, sanctimonious but deeply malicious quality of Leftism is intuitively sensed by most normal people and is strongly aversive - but the most incorrigible Leftists, of whom we have lately seen far more than is good for us, are genuinely oblivious to themselves and their own complex and by no means altogether admirable motives. Ironically, like Bob Beckel, they perceive themselves as victims when their ideology and their claims to holiness are challenged. It is, and always has been, much more about them than about the alleged objects of their benevolence.

Yes to #28. As for Dana, she did not like Dr. Carson´s prayer breakfast speech either. Thought he was disrespectful to the preezy. Dana is a Bushite (loyalty is an admirable trait) and will denigrate anyone who appears to be in the way of Bush family ambitions, IMO.

There weren´t any Liberals in the Civil Rights movement. Or, considering the day and age, no Democrats. They all voted against it until it became political suicide to continue.

Drop dead Beckel. The liberals were NEVER in the forefront of human rights issues. They loved segregations, the REPUBLICANS were at the forefront of civil rights. Beckel has lived in the bottom of a booze bottle and most coherent thoughts involved bedding prostitutes.

And Perino never was much but a spineless RINO.

I was a liberal in the 1960´s. But then I graduated from college, got a job, grew up, and became a conservative. Beckel has never experienced a similar maturity. He is still a child and I couldn´t care less about his father´s political affiliations. Fox news is going downhill and fat kids like Beckel are causing it to happen faster.

Robert, it was not the left that pushed through the civil rights laws of the mid 1960´s, as the current democratic narrative of the past would have you believe. It was the Republicans in congress at the time that accomplsihed that task. Remember Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.

Dana Perino said Dr. Carson has “burned through so much of his credibility by appearing so often on cable news and talk radio." Huh? What´s this all about, Dana? Did you hit your pointed little head on a door knob, or was this just another of your uninformed attempts at trying to look smart? For a teensy little intellect like Dana to say Dr. Carson has "burned through much of his credibility" is nothing short of mind boggling. And it betrays how little she knows about this remarkable physician, man, humanitarian, intellect, writer, speaker, truth-teller, et al. Dr. Carson is a giant in a world crying for people like him.

The Five has grown even more rapidly than I thought it would into just one more Fox show that´s a complete waste of time. Except for Brett Baier, it´s the only Fox program I regularly tune in and Brett doesn´t always last through until the panel—if Juan Williams, Kirsten Powers, and a couple others are on I hit the remote.

It isn´t surprising that Bob Beckel makes a nasty demonRAT fool of himself whenever he opens his mouth, but it has become embarrassing to hear other members of the five working so hard to sell him as just a nice guy with a different opinion who they really love and adore.

Note to Dana Perino: You lost me forever with your comments about Dr. Carson. Not only do you shame yourself, you opened a door that causes one to challenge whether or not you bother to do even a cursory amount of research before shooting your mouth off.

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign. Those scheduling decisions

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
