Every time Ben Carson opens his mouth, he continues to prove why he belongs among the ranks of the worst of the carnival barkers on the right and he did it once again last week during an appearance on American Family Radio's "Today's Issues."
It seems the good doctor has figured out who the real culprits are that are responsible for the death of Michael Brown... feminists. As Kaili Joy Gray at Wonkette said... thanks a lot ladies.
Now, courtesy of Dr. Ben Carson, who is a doctor and an expert on a great many things, there’s a whole new class of terrible people for us to blame: feminists. Finally! We were hoping someone would get around to that, since feminists are usually to blame for everything that isn’t Obama’s fault.
“Certainly in a lot of our inner cities, in particular the black inner cities, where 73 percent of the young people are born out of wedlock, the majority of them have no father figure in their life. Usually the father figure is where you learn how to respond to authority,” Carson said. “So now you become a teenager, you’re out there, you have really no idea how to respond to authority, you eventually run into the police or you run into somebody else in the neighborhood who also doesn’t know how to respond but is badder than you are, and you get killed or you end up in the penal system.” [...]
“I think a lot of it really got started in the ’60s with the ‘me generation,’” he replied. “‘What’s in it for me?’ I hate to say it, but a lot of it had to do with the women’s lib movement. You know, ‘I’ve been taking care of my family, I’ve been doing that, what about me?’ You know, it really should be about us.”
So because feminists killed the patriarchal structure that was working so well for everyone, Michael Brown had to go and get himself killed. Yup, that sounds reasonable. If only Brown had a father and had learned how to respect authority, he never would have gotten himself killed like that, probably maybe.
We can’t help but wonder if the good doctor is aware of another recent shooting by police officers of a young black boy in Cleveland named Tamir Rice, who was obviously asking for it by being a black 12-year-old kid in a park, and obviously for not having a father to teach him how to respect the authority of white police officers who are forced against their will to gun down children in the street.
