Ben Carson says he’s ‘not crazy’ as he compares ISIS to founders

Ben Carson on Thursday said Americans can learn from the Islamic State’s willingness to die for their cause, comparing ISIS to the Americans who waged the Revolutionary War against the British. Carson is now blaming the “liberal press” for making him sound crazy.

“A bunch of rag-tag militiamen defeated the most powerful and professional military force on the planet. Why? Because they believed in what they were doing. They were willing to die for what they believed in,” Carson told a luncheon audience of national Republican committee members.

“Fast forward to today. What do we have? You’ve got ISIS. They’ve got the wrong philosophy, but they’re willing to die for it while we are busily giving away every belief and every value for the sake of political correctness. We have to change that.”

“Carson says all these crazy things,” Carson said at the Republican National Committee winter meeting, mocking the “craziness narrative” about him in the mainstream media. “Every time a liberal press does something about me they say, ‘Oh you know, he’s the one that said Obamacare is worse than slavery.’ First of all I never said that. I said it’s the worst thing since slavery.”

Carson, 63, spoke Thursday to about 250 Republicans and defended his reputation. Critics point that his previous remarks as the “problem.”

On gay marriage with Sean Hannity in Oct, 2013:

HANNITY: All right, last question, we have the issue of the Supreme Court dealing with two issues involving gay marriage. I’ve asked you a lot of questions. I’ve never ask you that, what are your thoughts?

CARSON: Well, my thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality. It doesn’t matter what they are. They don’t get to change the definition.

 

Carson was under heat for comparing liberals to Nazis because of their oppressive nature and desire to silent dissidents. He also apologized for content in his book, which were used without credit.
