Dr. Carson’s Theory on the Media
Dr. Benjamin Carson has taken the world by storm. Dr. Benjamin Carson from Johns Hopkins University took CPAC by storm. He was on Hannity last night. Anytime he speaks, he just dominates. Everybody loves Dr. Carson, and the reason they love Dr. Carson is he is able to articulate and explain conservatism in a way that is persuasive without raising his voice at all. He sounds like your dad talking to you — or not your dad, your best buddy talking to you at the table, or in a bar, or whatever the most-nonthreatening place you can be is.
You know, people throw out the idea of him running for office, and he’s not discouraging that. He said, “Well, you know, I am gonna retire in 130 days, two hours, five minutes, and four seconds. So who knows?” I think Dr. Benjamin Carson has probably got everybody in the Democrat Party scared to death. It’s gonna be really hard to demonize this guy — really, really hard — partially because of his race, but not just because he’s African-American.
It’s because you can call this guy all kinds of demonic names; he just doesn’t fit the bill. You can say he’s all these horrible things; then you hear him, see him, and listen to him, and it doesn’t click. He saves children. He saves children with his hands. He saves their little brains. He saves lit-tle children! He’s a ped-i-a-tric neu-ro-sur-geon. He saves the children, and he probably doesn’t exude the signs of overt wealth. There’s not a character in the TV series The Bible that looks like him.
