This is Kindly Dr. Ben Carson's wife, Lacena Rustin "Candy" Carson.
We've all seen the right wing blogs' slimey racist photoshopped images of Mr. and Mrs. Obama from before Barack Obama became president.
We've also read the nasty, racist comments about Mrs. Obama found on many of the right wing blogs, especially the type of blogs that now accuse Liberals of being "racist" because we quote the nonsensical statements Kindly Doc Carson makes almost daily. Quoting Kindly Doc Carson's own words from his own mouth is considered "hating" him, being "racist," and, of course, being "SCARED!" of him.
But I digress.
I know very little about Mrs. Carson, except that she and Mr. Carson met at Yale where they both received fine educations, and that they have three fine sons. I wonder if the Rabids on the Right will insinuate that both Candy and Ben got into Yale only through Affirmative Action -- because that's what the wingnuts claimed about Mr. and Mrs. Obama's educational successes after being admitted to Columbia, Harvard and Princeton.
And how soon before the Radical Rabids on the Right post racist photoshopped images of Candy looking like a gorilla or how soon before writing comments saying she picks fleas out of her tail while walking upright on her hind legs?
After all, both Candy Carson and Michelle Obama have similar backgrounds, coming from poor families and attaining the American dream by hard work and receiving a top-shelf education. But I'm guessing the knuckle-dragging racist creeps at the above-cited blog that encouraged unending smears against Mrs. Obama will not do the same to Mrs. Carson.
No one would ever call Mrs. Carson stunningly gorgeous or slender or any other adjective that describes conventional beauty, but that's not the point of this post. The point is that the Rabid Rottens on the Right who engaged in slandering and maligning Mrs. Obama's personal appearance have shown themselves to be of the lowest character and worse, lacking any self-awareness of their bigotry and disgusting cowardice.
Never forget that these types of racists wear their ignorance quite proudly, and they never understand that when they insult, demean, and slander Michelle Obama, it says more about their lack of humanity and their overabundance of stupidity than it says about the person they're trying to bring down with their malignant speech.
|Dr. and Mrs. Ben Carson|
PS. Candy Carson has a striking resemblance to Eleanor Roosevelt.
Both were/are accomplished women.
As Dr. Carson passes Donald Trump in the polls for the TGOP nomination for president, we are learning more and more about the kindly doc -- from his own mouth and from people who actually fact-check what he's been saying.
Here's the latest on a lie Kindly Dr. Carson has been telling people for years:
Ben Carson’s campaign on Friday admitted, in a response to an inquiry from POLITICO, that a central point in his inspirational personal story was fabricated: his application and acceptance into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
The academy has occupied a central place in Carson’s tale for years. According to a story told in Carson’s book, “Gifted Hands,” the then-17 year old was introduced in 1969 to Gen. William Westmoreland, who had just ended his command of U.S. forces in Vietnam, and the two dined together. That meeting, according to Carson’s telling, was followed by a “full scholarship” to the military academy.
West Point, however, has no record of Carson applying, much less being extended admission. “In 1969, those who would have completed the entire process would have received their acceptance letters from the Army Adjutant General,” said Theresa Brinkerhoff, a spokeswoman for the academy. She said West Point has no records that indicate Carson even began the application process.
“If he chose to pursue (the application process) then we would have records indicating such,” she said. When presented with this evidence, Carson’s campaign conceded the story was false.
The question is: Why would a man who has been so successful in his profession keep lying about being accepted to West Point? Is he pathological? I don't know. But I do know that we need to be very skeptical about what Dr. Carson has been saying about himself and what he will say in the future. Fact-checking is our best friend.
Now. How long before the Carson supporters bellow at the top of their lungs that the Left is trying to DESTROY DR. CARSON!!? when in reality, a little bit of fact checking is showing that not only does Dr. Carson know doodley-squat about pyramids and the Founding Fathers, but he's been lying for years about winning a scholarship to West Point!
Just remember this, boys and girls, the next time your read some whacked-out Tea Bagger talk about Hitlery and BENGHAZI! LIES! BOSNIA! LIES! HILDABEAST! LIES!
