After concocting the lie that Donald Trump ran a white supremacy campaign, liberals are now freaking out because his cabinet picks are too diverse. Having already selected an Indian-American woman and an Asian American woman, the President-elect has nominated Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi lost what’s left of her mind by accusing black Ben Cason of being unqualified for the job because she says he will discriminate against blacks.
Pelosi fired off an angry statement following Carson’s nomination announcement:
Dr. Ben Carson is a disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice to lead a department as complex and consequential as Housing and Urban Development.
Our country deserves a HUD Secretary with the relevant experience to protect the rights of homeowners and renters, particularly in low income and minority communities, and to ensure that everyone in our country can have access to safe and affordable housing without facing discrimination or homelessness.
There is no evidence that Dr. Carson brings the necessary credentials to hold a position with such immense responsibilities and impact on families and communities across America.
First of all, how is this not incredibly racist? Any criticism of Obama was met with accusations of racism from all of the democratic leaders including Pelosi. And while, the criticism of Obama was appropriate, this is insanity. Pelosi basically just said Carson is too dumb to do the job. Looking at that in another way, she said a black man is not intelligent enough to perform the duties of HUD Secretary. If a Republican had said it, it would be racist.
Second, Pelosi’s argument is that Ben Carson would discriminate against blacks and other minorities. That’s completely absurd, even for a democrat to say. Hell, that’s crazy by Pelosi standards and she’s a certifiable nutcase.
Let’s be clear here: Dr. Ben Carson is a world-renowned neurosurgeon, a position that requires a certain level of intelligence. He’s one of the smartest guys to ever be nominated for a cabinet position. If he can perform brain surgery and separate conjoined twins, he should have no problem running a Washington bureaucracy.
Next, Carson grew up poor in Detroit, living in government housing as a child. He is most likely the first person to ever be nominated for Secretary of HUD who actually lived in a government project. From my perspective that makes him more qualified for the job than anyone who has ever held the position.
Lastly, Ben Carson didn’t get where he is by marrying a rich white guy like Pelosi did: he worked his ass off and earned it. He isn’t suffering from rich white liberal disorder. He is a black man who knows what it’s like to be black. He has faced discrimination, mostly from white liberals, and knows how to overcome it. The idea that he will discriminate against blacks is as ridiculous as it is offensive.
Nancy Pelosi helped run the Democratic Party into the ground but for some reason the democrats have reelected her as House Minority Leader. Well, they get what they deserve. Instead of trying to repair the party’s image or craft a less repulsive message, she’s going after a smart black man, calling him stupid and racist. That should really help deliver the House of Representatives to the democrats in 2018. Not!
