Ben Carson Says He Will Outlaw ‘Liberal’ Speech On College Campuses, Not Conservative Speech (AUDIO)

In a stunning display of hostility toward liberals, reason, and the First Amendment, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson openly stated his intention to outlaw what he considers “liberal” speech on college campuses.

Earlier this week, Carson told right-wing radio host Glenn Beck that he would force the Department of Education to monitor and punish political speech on college campuses.

“I actually have something I would use the Department of Education to do,” Carson said. “It would be to monitor our institutions of higher education for extreme political bias and deny federal funding if it exists.”

And if that weren’t bad enough, the Republican presidential wannabe clarified his remarks during an interview with Dana Loesh and openly admitted that he would only ban and punish liberal speech while allowing conservative speech to run amok.

LOESH: “There are some who would say that it’s kind of like monitoring political speech. Do you agree with their assessment of that?”

CARSON: “No, I don’t, I think it’s a very big difference. But, of course, that would be the first thing that the left would claim because they want to be able to continue to do this, and it’s not appropriate for public funding to be used to indoctrinate students in one direction.”

In other words, Carson wants to punish college campuses by stripping them of funding just because they teach facts to educate students instead of teaching bullshit to indoctrinate them.

He even made sure to let Loesh know that conservatives won’t have to worry about their own speech being monitored because he only labels “liberal” speech as “extreme.”

“I think we would have to put in very strict guidelines for the way that that was done — and that’s why I used the word ‘extreme.’ I didn’t just say ‘political bias,’ I said ‘extreme political biases.’”

Clearly, Ben Carson intends to shred the Constitution if he becomes president. He’ll create an atmosphere on college campuses where only conservative points of view are allowed and that means an anti-science, racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-poor, fact-free conservative “Christian” agenda designed to indoctrinate students rather than educate them. Meanwhile, liberal speech is to be policed and punished to silence those who speak the truth backed up by evidence.

Not only is this unconstitutional, it’s just another in a long line of things that disqualify Ben Carson from being president.
