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.

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

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

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

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

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
