“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday.
Late Sunday, he doubled down on those comments in an interview with The Hill. (You may click here to read the article.)
“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson told The Hill. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”
As for me that is as clear and succinct as anyone trying to verbally communicate with me. Furthermore, all Dr. Carson was doing was using his constitutional right of freedom of speech and I am so glad that he did. Most importantly here was the astute awareness that Dr. Carson has exemplified — which is so refreshing. Right now how many of us know the true inner-workings of Islam?
How about this one — what relationship does a Muslim individual have with Islam? Therefore, all Dr. Carson was making an attempt to protect the American people and that is my friends the unequivocal responsibility of the POTUS.
Carson ignited a media firestorm in a Sunday morning interview with Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press,” in which he said he “would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that,” Carson said.
Pushing back at the media firestorm over his remarks, Carson sought to frame himself as one of the few candidates running for president willing to tell hard truths.
And the reality of the matter is that he and Ms. Fiorina are the two that have told the truth without the frosty icing.
It honestly makes me want to spew in every direction as how Senator Graham demands an apology, Senator Cruz has called for his resignation from the nomination process. The long and short of it my friends, as I have stood by this before, is a person who constantly demands apologies is an apologist. And why wouldn’t Mr. Cruz want Dr. Carson out — no doubt he is looking to gain some of Carson’s command.
