The Indignation of Affirmative Action
I have been following the Ben Carson phenomenon, and I came across a black news forum and a PhD in Political science who wrote an article arguing that Carson is an idiot, and that he needs to go back to doctoring and leave politics to the professionals - as he is one by virtue of his education credentials.

I wrote a response to his arguments. The first argument I address is his response to Carson's argument that America has solved its starvation problem.


You are stupid and slinging shit at a wall, hoping that something sticks, Dr. Leon. You have a PhD, but your reasoning is dangerous:

1) Has he forgotten that in 1951 he may have been one of those hungry children?

What does that lead us to understand in this discussion, that Carson is some kind of hypocrite, and has no compassion??? Supposedly, the guy has been performing delicate surgery on babies that I would probably wonder why waste the time, money, and personal energy - what is the quality of life for the survivor?

2) Socialist models and ideas espousing common or public ownership have existed since antiquity.

I believe that is true, however, it does not necessarily negate Carson's argument, because different people need different phenomenon to inspire their thinking towards the same analysis - white people were not yet robot racists, then.

3) Socialism was actually a reaction to the Industrial Revolution which started in Britain around 1760.

This is really funny. You are going to be so embarrassed, when you realize the mistake you have made here, Doctor. I hope you are confident in your scholastic credentials. Remember, you were trying to rip Carson a new asshole - weren't you?

4) There is a big difference between belief and practice. If Carson understood the Constitution he would know that.

Are you serious, you believe the 1787 constitution is the source for the comparisons of belief and practice? Remember how the supreme Court is always considered to be divided on the interpretation of the Constitution, and you think there is something Almighty reliable about a constitution that was written by devious slave owners, 200 hundred years before PlayStation? And then you have a circular logic error when you fail to realize that the terms "practice," and "exercise," mean the same thing. Ultimately, the difference between belief and practice is better described as very similar, because belief is always a practice, and that is why they say, "you have a right to be stupid in America."

5) A reporter once asked Dr. Carson why he never talked about race to which he responded, “…because I’m a neurosurgeon”. Well, Dr. Carson, I’ll make a deal with you, I’ll stay out of the operating room if you leave the political analysis and dialogue to trained professionals.

You really should check the credentials of the education you received - what did you do in the military? You appear to be a prime example of the indignation of Affirmative Action.I assure you, I can do this on the behalf of the white race and atheist cause, because I am the ultimate leader, because of my deliberation of an ontological theory of technology, that has lead me to define a better knowledge classification system and a better political charter system.

RE: The Indignation of Affirmative Action
I knew it - I ran a search of his first line, and it is obvious, he cut and paste the stuff.

In modern culture, an icon is a symbol – i.e. a name, face, picture, or even a person readily recognized as having some well-known significance or embodying certain qualities. That face or person begins to represent something else of greater significance through literal or figurative meaning. With his speech at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast and his recent CPAC speech, Carson has become the new Black conservative darling. He’s a great pediatric surgeon but a terrible icon for the political collective.

He uses the term "icon" as a substitute for "token negro" in his "Drive-By, Bomb Thrower" hit piece title for the article:

Ben Carson, Great Surgeon but a Bad Icon for the Political Collective

He was afraid to call him a token, but this guy, Toure, from Rolling Stone called Carson "an Uncle Tom for the GOP" after he published the article.

Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality

The problem with Toure calling Dr. Carson an "Uncle Tom," is two-fold, obviously racist, but in January, Colin Powell went off about Republicans using racist rhetoric - which is negligible compared to what Toure used.

Colin Powell slammed Sarah Palin‘s “shuck and jive” comments from last year about President Obama and criticized Republican’s use of the word “lazy” to describe the president.
