Ben Carson: Women’s Movement To Blame For Police Killing Michael Brown (AUDIO)

Ben Carson stuck his foot in his mouth again last week by blaming the women’s liberation movement of the 1960s and 1970s for the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Even though the unarmed teen was murdered by incompetent white police officer Darren Wilson, Carson decided to instead pin the blame on the feminist movement in what appears to be an early effort to take the lead among conservatives for which Republican can offend women the most.

Speaking on America Family Radio, Carson suggested that women are incapable of teaching their kids to respect authority which he considers the reason why so many black youths are killed by police or end up incarcerated.

Certainly in a lot of our inner cities, in particular the black inner cities, where 73 percent of the young people are born out of wedlock, the majority of them have no father figure in their life. Usually, the father figure is where you learn how to respond to authority. So now you’re a teenager, you’re out there, you have no idea how to respond to authority and you eventually run into the police or you run into somebody else in the neighborhood who also doesn’t know how to respond but is badder than you are, and you get killed or you end up in the penal system.

Carson then proceeded to claim that Michael Brown may still be alive had women not fought for for reforms on issues such as reproductive rights, domestic violence, maternity leave, equal pay, women’s suffrage, sexual harassment, and sexual violence during the women’s liberation movement in the ’60s and ’70s.

I think a lot of it really got started in the ’60s with the ‘Me’ generation. ‘What’s in it for me?’ I hate to say it, but a lot of it had to do with the women’s lib movement. You know, ‘I’ve been taking care of my family, I’ve been doing that, what about me?’ You know, it really should be about us.

Ben Carson has said many stupid things in recent years, but these latest statements come after only weeks after he threw his hat in the ring to be the Republican nominee in the 2016 Presidential Election. He not only insulted the black community, he insulted women too. And last time I checked, both of those groups are major voting blocs that the GOP have failed miserably with in recent times. The fact is, the only one to blame for Michael Brown’s death is the man who pulled the trigger in 2014, not an unrelated movement fighting for equality for women in the 1960s.

Once again, Ben Carson has demonstrated that while he is no doubt an expert neurosurgeon, he clearly doesn’t have the brain to be President of the United States.
