Dr. Ben Carson seems to be the first GOP contender to fall squarely within the media’s crosshairs. Make no mistake, it’s because he is black. And conservative. The media can’t allow the two things to go together. It’s damaging to the narrative.
Carson never said he went to West Point. The service academies don’t offer scholarships either. Media types don’t know this because media types don’t know anything about the military except for the caricatures they’ve created about it — baby killers, war mongers for oil, repressive instruments of racism, etc.
A CNN talking head claimed that it was all part of the “vetting” process. Funny. I don’t recall any vetting occurring for our current President. Still haven’t seen his grades. Don’t know who paid his tuition at the tony prep school he attended. His fictitious friends and “composite characters” in his auto-biographies were treated as literary genius and not as distortions of the truth.
Speaking of distorting the truth, what about Hillary Clinton. To name a few of her distortions, but certainly not all:
— During Congressional testimony it was revealed that she lied about Benghazi. It is not an exaggeration to say “Hillary lied, Americans died”.
– Hillary knowingly processed classified information using her private email server. Both are illegal. Oh, she’ll say the server was “authorized”…but that means nothing until documents are produced that indicate who the authorizing authority was.
— She claimed she and Bill were “dead broke” after leaving the White House.
— She once claimed she landed in the Balkans under sniper fire when in fact nothing of the sort ever happened. Hillary didn’t don a flack jacket and kevlar helmet and run to safety as bullets landed all around her. Twelve-year olds can make up better, more believable tall tales than this nonsense.
— She claimed that she tried to join the United States Marine Corps. Mid-1970s, just married to Bill, law degree in hand, and she decided she wanted to become a Marine? To borrow from the old gag, “That’s what she said”.
There isn’t a great deal of “vetting” going on when it comes to Hillary. Indeed, the coronation is almost a done deal. Despite the fact that the woman has spent a good chunk of her natural existence lying.
Instead, Carson is being fed to the lions because he’s a black guy that happens to be conservative.
