Black conservatives are sure making themselves look conspicuously unintelligent these days.
First there was my fellow SDA brother, Ben Carson, saying that the VA scandal is a "gift from God".
How, exactly, is the suffering of these poor veterans because of bureaucratic incompetence a gift? I mean when the very conservative folks over at Townhall declare that the remarks were "tone- deaf" you might have a problem.
This is what the good Doctor said:
"I think what's happening with the veterans is a gift from God to show us what happens when you take layers and layers of bureaucracy and place them between the patients and the health care provider....
...And if we can't get it right, with the relatively small number of veterans, how in the world with are you going to do it with the entire population?"
And this guy is thinking of running for president? This is the kind of blind rhetoric that has made politics in this country (particularly the politics of those in a certain political party) a running joke.
Then there is Ken Blackwell. You all remember Ken, right? He is the slave catcher from Ohio, who as that state's Secretary of State orchestrated voter fraud to deliver that state to George W. Bush in 2004.
Mr. Blackwell has declared that same sex marriage is to blame for the UCSB shootings.
"Blackwell discussed the recent UCSB shootings during a radio interview with FRC president Tony Perkins (of course), and suggested that, of all things, marriage equality was responsible for Elliot Rodger’s rampage last week that left seven people dead. Blackwell, the former Republican mayor of Cincinnati, blamed the shootings on “the teaching of sexual roles and the development of human sexuality in our culture.
“When these fundamental institutions are attacked and destroyed and weakened and abandoned, you get what we are now seeing, and that is a flood of disturbed people in our society that are causing great pain,” he continued." [Source]
Riiight, because in the good old days when we were all god fearing Christians we could lynch those Negroes with no fear of answering for our actions and treat them worse than we did our pets.
"He [Blackwell] also hinted that America didn’t want to have the conversation about how gay marriage is turning kids into psychopaths, and instead turn to “blaming the Second Amendment, or blaming knives, or blaming cars… This is a convenient way of avoiding what is the root cause.”
Please just shut up and go back in the house.
