Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson was asked to clarify a statement in his new book, A Perfect Union, that suggested Nazis would not have been so successful had Jewish people been armed. Carson did indeed clarify what he meant and thank goodness he did because otherwise we might think he wasn’t a bat-shit insane person.
Carson said, “I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed. I’m telling you there is a reason these dictatorial people take guns first.“
Again, just in case any of us aren’t totally comprehending what Ben Carson, a famed and successful neurosurgeon and a man who wants to lead our country, said — he basically believes that Jewish people could have done more to protect themselves from being victims of the Holocaust.
For a man who holds, objectively, one of the most difficult and highly skilled jobs in the world — operating on human brains — Ben Carson is a fucking idiot. Sure, you can be mean and be a brain surgeon. You can be sad and be a brain surgeon. But how is this asshole so dumb and also a brain surgeon? This man went to Yale University, was the first person on Planet Earth to successfully separate twins conjoined at the head, and also thinks the Holocaust could have been prevented if the victims had been given guns?
This mother fucker needs to open up his brain and check it out because he is a fuckin’ medical anomaly. Maybe there’s some, like, Holocaust denier lobe he can remove or something? I’m not sure exactly what’s going on in the brain, because I’m not a brain surgeon. I’ll leave that to him.
