Democrats have long despised Ben Carson.
Being a black man who started from the bottom, they believe they are entitled to have his support.
But he’s an independent thinker, and he infuriated radical Leftists across America with just four words.
Just this week, Democrats launched a scheme to get Ben Carson removed from his position as Housing and Urban Development Chairman.
Members of his staff went to The Washington Post to relay comments he made stating that “transgender people get the same rights as everyone else, but they don’t get to change things for everybody else.”
Carson also allegedly said that women don’t want “big, hairy men” in their shelters.
When speaking to Tucker Carlson, he didn’t deny the comments.
Instead, he added, “nobody gets extra rights.”
Last week, The Washington Post reported that unnamed HUD staffers relayed comments made by Carson during a private meeting that “transgender people should get the same rights as everyone else, but they don’t get to change things for everybody else,” and relayed conversations with shelter operators and women’s groups who didn’t want “big, hairy men” entering these shelters.
The staffers were reportedly surprised and dismayed by the phrasing; an unnamed HUD senior official responded that Carson “does not use derogatory language to refer to transgendered individuals,” and had been referring to men who merely feign transgender status to gain access to vulnerable women.
Nevertheless, numerous Democrat leaders and presidential candidates, including Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, condemned Carson and called for him to be fired. On Friday evening, Carson appeared on Tucker Carlson tonight to explain the situation:
“I simply pointed out the fact that, you know, we have to have policies that take into consideration everybody’s rights,” Carson said. “I say everybody has equal rights; nobody gets extra rights.”
Transgender activists claim that as soon as they declare they are a different gender than they were born with, that becomes a fact.
And men have been using that argument to gain access to women’s homeless shelters, and other facilities specifically designated for women.
Carson is not afraid to call this insanity out.
