(Tea Party 247) – It seems the radical left in this country has been on a steady diet of crazy the last month or so, a fact compounded by the mass hysteria that’s occurred in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the violent race riots that exploded all across the country as a result.
Now, yes, it’s true, the left has been out of their gourd for a very long time, but things have really been ramped up since the beginning of 2020 when it seems all hell broke loose in the heavens.
In fact, Black Lives Matter folks now want to paint their slogan all over public streets so we’re forever reminded of their radical message of racial division — and that’s what it is, division — focusing on our skin color instead of the content of a person’s character.
However, Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, is calling into question whether painting the slogan, “Black Lives Matter” is really all that good of an idea.
Liberals are really going to hate him over this.
Via Daily Wire:
Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, questioned how those painting “Black Lives Matter” on public streets would respond if someone were to paint a Confederate flag on a public street.
Carson, who made the remarks during an interview on Fox News with anchor Martha MacCallum, noted that there is a difference between “black lives matter,” which is a statement of support for the black community, and Black Lives Matter, which is a “Marxist-driven organization.”
Carson said that Black Lives Matter “espouses things like taking down the model of western family structure, talking about defunding the police, and the host of things on their websites, the marxist influence.”
“These are things that are antithetical to the American model and to patriotism in this country,” Carson continued. “So I think there are a lot of innocent and good people who think black lives matter just means we should be taking care of our black citizens and making sure they are not discriminated against, and that is noble and laudable. But we have an organization that is taking advantage of the fact that people don’t really know what’s behind a Marxist-driven organization.”
Later in the interview, MacCallum asked Carson what he thought about Trump calling out those who are painting “Black Lives Matter” on public streets.
Before we get to the main comments, let’s take a moment to reflect on the possible fallout from what Carson is saying. There’s no doubt folks in the black community who are part of BLM are going to accuse the good doctor of being an “Uncle Tom,” a phrase which is incredibly racist and foul. They will also say he’s not black enough since he’s not a Democrat.
Let that sink in for a moment. Individuals in this movement are being racist against their own kind for bothering to think for themselves instead of being told what and how to think about issues that are impacting them directly. Isn’t that ridiculous? Isn’t that simply hypocritical?
“The larger question is, when you’re in a public forum, a public square, do you have the right to put on there a political statement?” Carson responded. “I wonder what people would say if somebody painted a Confederate flag on a public street?”
“We really need to take into consideration those things,” Carson continued. “On private property, absolutely do whatever you want to. This is a free country. But we have to recognize that when we put political symbols on public property we have to take responsibility for that.”

Boy, there’s going to be massive backlash for this. You can feel the hate rising from the left as we speak. You’ll see the true color of the racist left come out against Carson. Unfortunately, they won’t hold themselves to the same standards they have for everyone else and the comments will go unaddressed.
