Media And Liberals Attack Dr. Ben Carson For Using Examples But Ignore Sotomayor Incest Example

By Susan Duclos

John Nolte noticed that Dr. Ben Carson, who happens to hold conservative ideologies on the issue of the definition of marriage, being between a man and woman, was treated far differently by liberals and the media than liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, when both used 'examples" to make a point.

Carson's, discussed here, are shown below:

During Sean Hannity's show on Tuesday, when asked about the matter before the Supreme Court, Carson said, "Marriage is between a man and a woman. No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn't matter what they are. They don't get to change the definition."

 After liberals and the media went nuts over his examples, claiming he was "comparing" gays to NAMBLA, Carson apologized if the examples he used offended and explained:

"I think people have completely taken the wrong meaning out of what I was saying," the 61-year-old surgeon said in a telephone interview Friday. "First of all, I certainly believe gay people should have all the rights that anybody else has. What I was basically saying is that as far as marriage is concerned that has traditionally been between a man and a woman and nobody should be able to change that."

"Now perhaps the examples were not the best choice of words, and I certainly apologize if I offended anyone," he added. "But the point that I was making was that no group of individuals, whoever they are, whatever their belief systems, gets to change traditional definitions. The reason I believe the way I do, I will readily confess, is because I am a Christian who believes in The Bible."

The Bible, he explained, "...says we have an obligation to love our fellow man as ourselves, and I love everybody the same -- all homosexuals. Everybody who knows me knows I would never say anything to intentionally hurt someone."

Nolte over at Breitbart points out that while on opposite ends of the political spectrum, Sotomayor too used an example that, had Carson or any other conservative used to make a contrasting point, would have been skewered for, yet the media and liberals have been oddly silent.



Mr. Olson, the bottom line that you're being asked -- and -- and it is one that I'm interested in the answer: If you say that marriage is a fundamental right, what State restrictions could ever exist? Meaning, what State restrictions with respect to the number of people, with respect to -- that could get married -- the incest laws, the mother and the child, assuming they are of age -- I can -- I can accept that the State has probably an overbearing interest on -- on protecting the a child until they're of age to marry, but what's left? 
 Nolte states quite clearly that Sotomayor wasn't making a comparison between gay marriage and incest just as Carson wasn't making a comparison, both were simply using examples about separate aspects of an issue.

The point of Nolte's piece is the hypocrisy and double standard shown on the part of liberals and the media coverage of the two, one liberal and one conservative.

Is anyone naive enough to believe that had Carson used those same examples, in some way, in favor of changing the definition of marriage, he would have been attacked for it?

If so, there is this bridge in Brooklyn I am selling, give me a call, we will discuss the price.

Other examples of Carson being attacked relentlessly since he took Obama's policies to task at the National Prayer Breakfast, from an earlier piece:

Examples of previous attacks against Carson, which started when he took Obama's policies to task at the National Prayer Breakfast, while Obama sat a couple seats away from him, can be found here, here and here.

Since that initial National Prayer Breakfast video of Carson went viral, liberals have called him an "Oreo," a "Token,"   a white man's "Negro," an "Uncle Tom,"  a "Negro du jour," and Nigger, among other things.
