Ben Carson doubles down on Muslim comments as CNN hack displays ignorance

carson-cnnWhile appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson doubled down on his stand that he would not support a Muslim who wants to replace the Constitution with Sharia law.

Sadly, CNN’s Jake Tapper acted more like a condescending, arrogant, leftist hack, badgering him throughout the interview.  He just couldn’t seem to grasp what Carson was saying, requiring the retired neurosurgeon to explain it as though he were talking to a two-year-old.

Here’s video of the exchange.

Apparently, Tapper missed the memo regarding a poll that says a majority of American Muslims want the Constitution replaced with Sharia law — the kind of law that says gays can be killed for being gay and women can be punished for driving a car.  Worse yet, about a quarter support violence against infidels.

It seems he also missed the poll that says a majority of Americans agree with Carson on the issue.  At least one secular Muslim said Carson has a point.

Not only that, a majority say Carson has nothing to apologize for.  So why did Tapper act the way he did?  The answer is simple.

Carson is a Republican, and in the eyes of the Democrat-media complex, barely human, and certainly not worthy of any kind of respect whatsoever.

I guarantee you, if Carson were a Democrat, there would be no problem whatsoever.
