Why Dr. Benjamin Carson Scares the Left
Some people were asking me about Ben Carson last night. And I said, “Let me tell you what his secret is. People are not able to detect an agenda when Ben Carson speaks. That’s the magic.” And it’s the same thing with Obama. Obama does not appear to have an agenda. At least people don’t attach an agenda to him. What that means is, people are not, therefore, automatically predisposed to being wary. People who have agendas, and those agendas are known, will automatically have people suspicious of them. Because what is an agenda? It means many things to many people.
When you get to the low-information crowd, an agenda is a design, a plan you have for them and about them over which they may not have any control. They’re very suspicious of agendas. That’s why anybody that has one is automatically a suspect. It’s just human nature. It’s the way things exist in the country and in our culture today. It hasn’t always been this way, but it is now.
Well, Dr. Carson is able to make a speech, to appear at the National Prayer Breakfast, to be a guest on a TV show, to tell you what he thinks, and even tells you the way he thinks things should be. But nobody thinks that he’s got an agenda. So there’s no grand design. There’s no perception that he wants to force people to do something. And that’s what many people think of as an agenda. And that, I think, is one of Obama’s secret techniques. He gets away with not having an agenda. And to the extent that he does have an agenda, it’s fighting these mysterious, powerful forces that are destroying everything. And what’s ironic about this is that there hasn’t been a president in a hundred years who’s had this kind of naked desire to subjugate people and to control them. And yet the low-information crowd that supports Obama, that’s the last thing they think about him.
