As a Liberal I'm Voting for Ben Carson for President (Updated)

Why am I supporting Carson? Mainly, because I hate America.

For years conservatives and elected Republican politicians have stated, matter-of-factly, that Liberals don't accept American Exceptionalism, that we wish to bring down the Greatest Free-est Best-est Country that every was, that we Hate America. This is common sense, no-duh, conventional wisdom on the Right. This is the starting point for every screed uttered on Right-Wing Toxic Hate Radio. This is the opening paragraph of every blog or facebook post, every conservative grifters latest book. It's the fundamental building block of everything the Right believes. This is Faux News.

Well, I'm going to prove them right. I'm going to vote for Ben Carson because a Carson Presidency will totally destroy the United States.

Ben Carson embodies C.S. Lewis' trilemma. Carson is a Liar and a Lunatic who thinks he's the Lord. Carson is a wholly unserious fairly demented individual. I can think of no one more qualified to usher in the End of the American Era. His Presidency will be quite a spectacle.

One of Carson lunatic beliefs (which I recall from years of Sid Meier's iconic computer games Civilization) that the Pyramids were built to store grain, seems to be Evangelical pablum recycled from middle-ages theologians that Joseph built the Pyramids for the 7 lean years. Carson, like all American Christianists, thinks he knows better than Historians, Scientists, Archaeologists and other trained people because he's read the Bible.

But, Carson's Presidential Campaign semi-admitted that Ben fabricated a story about getting a full-scholarship to West Point. Carson recounted his made up story in his novel, In Gifted Hands,
Afterward, Sgt. Hunt introduced me to General Westmoreland, and I had dinner with him and the Congressional Medal winners. Later I was offered a full scholarship to West Point. I didn’t refuse the scholarship outright, but I let them know that a military career wasn't where I saw myself going.
Like, much of the Carson mystique, this account is a complete fabrication and outright lie. But, Carson's been recounting his lie of how he met General Westmoreland and was offered a "Scholarship" for 2 decades now. Of course, this doesn't matter to the "hermetically sealed" right-wing internet bubble. To them Carson's lies are proof the liberal media is out to get Ben Carson. (Just like that Faux News and every right-wing media site is covering for Ben Carson's West Point Lie.)

So, a proven liar and borderline lunatic, once Carson's beliefs are implemented into Policies and Laws would mark the End of the American Republic and usher in the Neo-Feudalist Wage Slave Corporate State.

Ben Carson has stated he will refuse to raise the debt ceiling. Boom, that alone will throw the entire World economic model, crafted post-World War II at the Breton Woods conference and refined at Bilderberg Meetings, into total Chaos.

Of course, it's going to be painful for the eternally butt-hurt white working class, because they are going to lose their homes, their meager savings, their pensions and 401k's and will not receive any Social Safety Net benefits. But, white working class people have been voting in Republicans for decades now and they deserve to share the pain they've inflicted on so many others.

Carsonomics having thrown the entire world into financial ruin will make the 2007 Republican Recession look like a Golden Era of Prosperity. So, Ben will move on to War to stimulate America.

Carson has declared he will order the military to destroy ISIS, so get ready for another decade of deployments to Iraq (Republicans and the Rich won't be worried because they don't serve in the military) but fortunately the military's hands, according to Ben, "will be untied" whatever that means? Torture? Burning Villages to save them from ISIS?

Carson now facing some discomfort at home, will declare Abortion is Slavery and use the awesome power of the government to ensure every pregnant woman carries her fetus to term. No matter what.

If that means quartering troops inside women's homes and detaining people without probable cause too bad, those amendments mean nothing when faced with the prospect some woman might get uppity ideas in her head about her body belonging to her!

Carson policies will tickle the right-wingers lizard brains and destroy America.

Kevin Drum over at MotherJones has a list of Carson's exaggerations (thus far). It seems to me that Ben Carson isn't satisified with his history. A quiet nerdy young man growing up in a tough section of Detroit (but before the Republican Economic Attack on the City), who went to Yale and then on to a brilliant medical career, so he's had to add elements and create a more compelling background for himself.

It's very sad, but what's downright disgusting is the way the Conservative Media Establishment is rallying, defending, and justifying Carson's baloney because they know he'll advance the Conservative Values of Intolerance, Oppression and Adulation of the Rich if he wins the White House. The Right-Wing media is hypocritically trotting out the 'High-Tech Lynching' rhetoric at the same time they've spent 7 years slandering and libeling President Obama.

It's the media default setting for every Republican. It's why the Clown Car has so many passengers. Almost nothing a Republican could do or lie about will disqualify them. The only unbreakable commandment of the Right is thou shall not say anything nice about liberals, if a Republican were to do that he would be summarily dismissed.

It's honestly hard to tell whether Carson is a liar or is actually deluded enough that he believes his own made-up stories.

@Prof Chaos,

It sadly seems that Ben Carson is disatisfied with his own his admirable personal history and has taken to embelishment, or he's slightly autistic and has been creating false memories for himself where these half-recalled events, hoaxes, and late-night informercials become his new history.

I think Ben Carson might be a person who "may be aware they are lying, or may believe they are telling the truth, being unaware that they are relating fantasies".

Dercish Sanders,
As you wrote on your blog as recounted from the Stephanie Miller Show, Ben Carson appears to have invented much of his back tory to come of as "authentically black" i.e. a Thug in the eyes of white conservatives. Just as Jonah Goldberg was able to speak about Carson being a real african-american unlike Obama. White Conservatives are always the final arbiter of everything.

Now, watching the overwhelmingly pale-faced right-wing media react as a QRF and rush to the defense of Carson, a man whom they don't really know anything about for sure, just because he's a Republican. They are fulfilling the ONLY COMMANDMENT of Conservatism, which is they are against liberals believe or want, updated and changed daily.
