Trump Endorser Ben Carson Encourages More Violence

Esteemed doctor, unhinged historian, and failed Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson appeared on NBC this morning where he encouraged Trump supporters to "fight back" against liberal saboteurs.

“I think certainly if the protesters continue with their Alinskyite tactics..."

Alinsky! *drink*

"...there is a real possibility of escalation,” Carson said, referring to the lefty community organizer Saul Alinsky. “Because those who are the victims of them have two choices. They can submit to them and just meekly do whatever those protesters want them to do, or they can fight back.

Someone is going to be killed before this election is over and even more may be killed after it's over. Even if Donald Trump loses, the hornet's nest he's poking won't go away.

    I thought Ben Carson’s whole appeal was based on his repentance for past violence and supposed learning that violence is not the way?

    Charlie Pierce has some advice for anti-Trump protesters: “Stay out of the buildings.”

    And you have to love Ben Carson’s “let’s you and him fight” call for violence. Priceless.

    Yes of course that’s what the protesters are doing. They’re using the “tactics” of Saul Alinsky because that’s who Barack Obama based all his beliefs on. Because of course he did. This from a man who belongs to the same GOP whose members practically have to be water boarded before they will acknowledge the existence of Lee Atwater or the Southern Strategy he devised despite the fact anyone in the world can Google up pictures of him standing behind Ronald Reagan or George H. W. Bush at press conferences.

    The GOP is an insane asylum that is run by pimps who are desperately trying to keep the inmates out of the front office.

      Actually, in the case of the GOP, the inmates have been running the asylum since they let the Tparty take a major role in their day-to-day party dealings.
