Several of you have commented on the following video and it certainly is becoming a viral sensation. It is the speech of Dr. Benjamin Carson before the National Prayer Breakfast this week. His remarks, while delivered with the calm logic of a skilled surgeon, were passionate and hard hitting. Carson, in case you’ve never heard of him, is the exact opposite of Barack Obama. He is a man who genuinely overcame poverty and, through determination and hard work, became a world renowned neurosurgeon.

Many have commented on the video but most seem to have missed the key moment. It came when Carson described what it was like to grow up in poverty with a single working mom. The contrast between Carson’s mother and the batshit broad who birthed Obama was the elephant in the room. Obama was lucky that he had his grandparents. They were the ones who effectively raised him. He did not have the type of mother that Carson did and, if you look carefully, you can see that fact eating away at him.

Carson spoke truth to power.

He came with no ideological agenda. His concern is solely with creating opportunity and independence. He reminds all who take time to listen that teaching slaves to read once was a crime. Why? Because slaveholders understood that literate blacks could not be kept in chains.

Today we have reached the point where the liberal, black establishment have become the new slave masters. Their strident support for teacher unions and tolerance of underperforming public schools is creating a new generation of slaves–black boys and girls who cannot read and will be nothing more than chattel to their new massa–the Federal Government.

God bless Ben Carson. Too bad he did not run against Obama. He would have my vote.
