Ben Carson, who functions largely as the GOP’s Uncle Ruckus, is once again speaking out in favor of wanton discrimination. At Steve King’s gathering of the most deluded “minds” in politics, the Iowa Freedom Summit, Carson held a short press conference after his 20-minute deluded rant.
For most of the seven minutes, Carson railed against LGBT individuals’ demand for equal rights. Carson told members of the media that “a few judges” have overthrown the will of the people in 32 states where it was decided “that marriage is between a man and a woman.”
Carson railed against “political correctness,” which he says “keeps people from discussing issues.” The 2016 Presidential hopeful said that progressives have been using “political correctness” to silence opposition as they tyrannically mold the country as they see fit.
“If two adults want to be together,” Carson said, “I’m not going to stop them from being together.” Carson suggested that equal marriage rights are not necessary because two people can take the very expensive route of setting up a “legal contract” so they can “share property and have visitation rights” or otherwise experience some benefits of marriage.
Carson says he does have a problem with good, pure, sweet, innocent Christian bakers being forced to make cakes for LGBT couples. In fact, those loving Christians might get so mad that they poison the cake, according to a man who wants to be President:
“What I have a problem with is when people try to force people to act against their beliefs because they say, ‘they’re discriminating against me.’ So they can go right down the street and buy a cake, but no, let’s bring a suit against this person because I want them to make my cake even though they don’t believe in it. Which is really not all that smart because they might put poison in that cake.”
The Hill reports that Carson’s remark was met with jubilation from his staffers, but “dead silence from the journalists in the room.”
