The Liberal Media Lynching of Dr. Ben Carson
We are all witnessing an elaborate liberal media lynching of Dr. Ben Carson. The former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon turned leading black Republican presidential candidate is just the latest “uppity negro” (Justice Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain) to defy the expectations of his white liberal mainstream media masters by deciding to ditch the political hymnal from which most blacks read and think for himself.
No matter that before he was surgically splitting brains, Ben Carson was being raised in poverty by a single mother. The disgusting, and yet prevailing, wisdom among far too many Americans is that if black people grow up impoverished like Ben Carson did, their unfortunate fate is a fixture of an America that is, always was, and always will be a devoutly racist place. And if you are black in America, you should never expect to achieve any meaningful socioeconomic success–like becoming a brilliant brain surgeon–simply because of the barriers American racism persistently permit.
Of course, this is fallacy.
More pointedly, Ben Carson rebukes that bitter ethos and the victim-focused racial identity it breeds. And now that–as a national figure running for president–he has chosen not to be a mindless minstrel puppet, tap dancing, performing, like a good boy, for his white liberal media gatekeepers, he is being whipped, strung up, and left to hang.
For all the Left’s pseudo-social science drivel about how white America “otherizes” blacks–mercilessly demeaning their humanity, transforming them to subhuman status–one would assume there would be more influential African Americans defending Ben Carson from abhorrent attacks like being called a “coon” by an Ivy League professor.
