Esteemed doctor, Republican presidential candidate, and purveyor of extreme political rhetoric Ben Carson says he would order the Department of Education to punish colleges that have become infested with extreme political rhetoric.
The question that prompted Carson to say that is just as ridiculous.
During an interview, Glenn Beck asked Carson if he would shut down the Education Department as president.
"I actually have something I would use the Department of Education to do," Carson responded. "It would be to monitor our institutions of higher education for extreme political bias and deny federal funding if it exists."
Will you commit to shutting down the Department of Education?
No, but I will use it to censor free speech on college campuses.
Ben Carson has no other use for the Department of Education.
