Ben Carson Tried To "Stab A Guy" In A Past Life?

In Carson thuggery?, Holocaust and US Slavery, http://schemas.google.com/blogger/2008/kind#post, Joshua De Leon, Ring of Fire Radio on October 27, 2015 at 9:07 AM


Ben Carson is filling the airways with fantastic tales of a childhood as a veritable rabble-rouser and a peripheral practitioner of ‘thuggery.’ If you believe all that emanates from the brain and mouth of Carson, you may accept his weekly inner city neighborhood claims as fact, I personally feel the man is a liar who is combating Donald Trump with tales that may appeal to conservative primary voters.

While I certainly will not deny that “rock throwing” doesn’t qualify as an act of a disbelief, other claims should make on wonder about “why.”  Once we passed his all too frequent claims about the Holocaust and US Slavery, his recent comment about the a stabbing mindset seems a bridge too far.

What is it about conservative politics and the GOP (in particular) that would find it acceptable for candidates to work towards the gutter to appeal to potential primary voters?

Of course, I may be wrong assuming those potential voters and political affiliates may actually want to be in a better place. And what did our parents teach us about “assuming?”
