Ben Carson sides with Planned Parenthood, says ‘hateful rhetoric’ played role in Colorado shooting

carson-cnn2While appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson seemed to swallow Planned Parenthood talking points and claimed that “hateful rhetoric” played a role in the Colorado Springs shooting.

Here’s video of the segment:

Odd, Carson is sounding just like the folks at Planned Parenthood trying to foment hate and violence against those who oppose abortion:

That’s right — if you disagree with Planned Parenthood, you’re part of the problem and probably played a role in the shooting, even though no one at Planned Parenthood seems to have been a target.

“Hatred,” of course means “any disagreement with Planned Parenthood.”  Because, how dare anyone oppose the wholesale slaughter of unborn children and the sale of fetal body parts.

The Daily Caller said Carson also appeared on ABC with the same rhetoric:

He also made the same claim in an interview with CBS “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson.

Of course, Carson’s efforts to pander to the moderates and leftists did him no good:

Of course, that’s not what Carson said, but it’s well known that facts to liberals are like holy water to a vampire.

The Right Scoop added:

Great job swallowing the liberal line and blaming right-wingers and the Prolife movement, Ben, we all really appreciate it. (This is sarcasm.)

I don’t think this is gonna play well with the base, because it ain’t playing well with me.

In short, Carson did himself no favors with these statements.
