Ben Carson: ‘Secular Progressives Want You to Sit Down and Shut Up’!

CNS News ^ | 9/14/15 | Mairead McArdle 

Speaking at the 2015 Eagle Forum last Friday, Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said, “The secular progressives, they don’t care whether you agree with them or not, as long as you keep your mouth shut, as long as you sit down and shut up.”
Over the weekend six presidential hopefuls, including Dr. Carson, spoke at the Eagle Council’s Eagle Forum in St. Louis, Missouri. The others were Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry, who announced the end of his presidential campaign.

Carson’s theme was courage, both physical and moral.
“Courage is one of the things that is sorely lacking these days in our society, and I think that’s one of the things that’s put us behind the eight ball,”he said. “Because people are afraid.”
“They’re afraid that somebody’s going to call them a name or give them an IRS audit or create a problem for their family,” said Carson. “And yet when you stop and think about all the things that people went through before we were here in order to give us our rights -- think about that kind of courage.”
Dr. Carson asked his audience to recall American history.
“Think about World War 2: the Nazis, the Axis Powers,” he said. “They were winning. And yet think about D-Day, when our soldiers invaded those beaches at Normandy, and being mowed down by machine-gun fire, a hundred men lying on the beach, a thousand men lying on the beach.”
“But did they turn back? Were they afraid?” he said. “Yes, they were afraid. But they did not turn back. They stepped over the bodies of their dead comrades knowing in many cases they would never see their loved ones or their homeland again. Why did they do it? They did it for you and for me so that we could be free, so that we could live in prosperity.”
Carson continued, “And now the question is, ‘Do we have the courage to stand up for what we believe in?’ Because see, today in America people have become frightened to stand up for what they actually believe in. We are in the process of giving away all of our values and principles for the sake of political correctness. And that will destroy the quality of life for those who are coming behind us.”
“I’m telling you, I’m not going to sit down and shut up,” Carson vowed. “And I hope that you won’t either .... This is too wonderful of a country for us to so easily relinquish it.”

A Message from ... The Queen

As you know, my dear people, the last year for me has been an annus horribilus. The Royal House of Clinton has been tormented by questions about our handling of finances and subjected to tiresome questions about the tragic events in Benghazi - in the furthest regions of our empire. And, sadly, also questions about my Royal e-mails.
Nevertheless, I will not be daunted in my desire and commitment to serve you the people. For the next seventeen months, I will be traveling among you as one of you, to listen to your deepest longings and needs. I will be with you in your Wal-Mart and beside you in your Burger Kings. I will drive with you down the busy interstate highways of our land sharing your poverty and needs with you.
How well I remember the days when the Duke of Arkansas and I were impoverished. After we were expelled from our Washington Palace, we hardly had two mansions to rub together. We were so poor we had to remove thousands of dollars of china, flatware, carpets and gifts from the Washington Palace just to survive, only to be forced to return much of the treasures by Washington. Now, happily, benefactors from around our empire have given just enough for us to scrape by.
During those difficult times, we had to cut back when our daughter was married. We only had three million dollars to spend on her wedding, and I remember our hopes as she moved into her $10 million Manhattan apartment that one day she would be able to move on from that humble abode to something more fitting. After working for MSNBC for a starting salary of a mere $600,000.00, what could she do.
So as I travel across our land to meet you all, I will be listening and sharing with you. Then when the time for the royal election comes, I know you will crown me as your rightful monarch so that I can continue the King Obama policies, and we can all live happily ever after.

We Won!
