Leftists flipped their lids at Ben Carson for what he said about women’s shelters

51

HUD Secretary Ben Carson is the latest Republican to be under attack from the Left.

Leftists seemingly choose their target by a roulette wheel.

And now they’re outraged after Ben Carson made one simple statement about women’s shelters.

Transgender mania has completely captured the Left.

A cross section of the country that comprises significantly less than 1% of the population is seemingly holding hostage the entire national debate.

But HUD secretary Ben Carson isn’t caving to the leftist mob.

Carson recently made comments about transgender women (men who think they’re women) invading spaces like women’s shelters.

He believes men who claim to be women should be banned from women’s shelters.

Life Site News reports:

“I made reference to the fact that I had heard from many women’s groups about the difficulty they were having with women’s shelters because sometimes men would claim to be women, and that HUD’s policy required the shelter to accept — without question — the word of whoever came in,” Carson wrote in response to criticism of his comments.

“This made many of the women feel unsafe, and one of the groups described a situation to me in which ‘big hairy men’ would come in and have to be accepted into the women’s shelter even though it made the women in the facility very uncomfortable,” continued Dr. Carson.

Under normal circumstances, Carson’s statement would be harmless and obviously true.

It’s entirely understandable why battered women would feel uncomfortable about men being allowed into these spaces.

But leftists are always on the hunt for the most offended and “oppressed,” and for now, that’s transgender people.

Leftists are jumping on the “big hairy men” comment, but that’s a statement that was relayed to him.

Ironically, feminists are some of the most forceful critics of transgenderism because they consider it to be “female erasure.”

Recently, even radical feminists teamed up with the Heritage Foundation to hold a panel on the dangers and excesses of the transgender movement.

When radical feminists are teaming up with a staunchly conservative group, you know the issue is serious.

What do you think about Dr. Carson’s statement?

Do you think men who claim to be women should be banned from women’s shelters?

  1. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson has no prior government experience. Do you believe Ben Carson is qualified for this crucial role?

    In 2017, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson endorsed Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. And Roy Moore won the Republican primary. Carson’s actions were a direct violation of the Hatch Act, which prevents federal employees from influencing political campaigns: the Hatch Act: Subject to the provisions of subsection (b), an employee may take an active part in political management or in political campaigns, except an employee may not use his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election OSC | 5 U.S. Code § 7323 – Political activity authorized; prohibitions | 1993

    Carson actively supported Roy Moore’s homophobic campaign every step of the way. We must hold Ben Carson accountable for this impeachable offense. Carson joined Sarah Palin and other right-wing fanatics to supported vile homophobe Roy Moore.

    Carson’s own anti-LGBT record is actually horrifying: he once joked about poisoning same-sex couples, and has equated homosexuality to bestiality. During his confirmation hearing, he stated that he doesn’t believe the LGBT community should be afforded any “extra rights.” LGBT activists and their straight allies insist equal rights are not “special rights.”

    Fanatics like Roy Moore and Ben Carson are joining together to make certain extremists maintain their majority in our government.

    There are valid reasons for liberals to oppose Ben Carson. An offhand comment about transgender people is merely the tip of the iceberg.

    • Whether he has had government experience is irrelevant. The question is whether a transgender woman should be allowed in a shelter for battered, abused women. They are fragile individuals and their wellbeing should be the priority. No transgender in these shelters.

      • Precisely correct, bur Vasu Murti is obviously part of the he/she or she/he movement by the sound of the post. Perhaps some group should set up “IT” shelters for these people

        • Vasu Murti is a troll (probably Mozlem, maybe a Satanist or an Athiest) who spouts Bible scriptures hoping to shame “Christians”. He may know quite a few of the Scriptures but doesn’t understand or believe them. He assumes that everyone, who isn’t a Mozlem (or anything else) must be a “Christian”. Even some who call themselves Christians are so far off the mark, it’s sad.

          Don’t be fooled. Even Satan can change himself into an angel of light. Vasu Murti is one of his minions.

          • AND who’s gum flapping is just wasted air and totally irrelevant to life demonstrating his parents were failures in child rearing. Oh so boring.

          • WHY do fools group atheists with satanists?? We don’t worship God, we DON’T worship Satan, we simply don’t believe either exists. But if you want to, that’s fine with us.

      • Well said Karen and I thank you for saying it. If they want to start creating transgender shelters, that’s fine. These ladies have been abused, possibly attacked and more than likely even worse. In what context can anyone choose to put “big hairy men” or even small non-hairy men in with them? They are there for a reason, SAFETY. Any clown, abusive pervert, ex or rapist, etc. can claim he feels like a woman today, harm an already hurting lady and get away with it. They probably need rest and to feel comfortable in their environment. THAT WOULD NOT BE COMFORTABLE FOR SOMEONE WHO’S BEEN VICTIMIZED ALREADY. The liberals need a dose of common sense in their plans. If one is transgender, that’s between them and God and we have freedom in the US if they choose that. However, safety isn’t something that should be tossed aside from those who’ve been abused, etc.

    • First, the Hatch Act: the democrats have ignored that one with impunity since it was enacted into law. Have you never heard of the Clintons campaigning for a fellow demotard? or Barak Obama? Hatch Act is something that they point to only when a republican does something that they don’t want him/her to do.
      Next: Women’s shelters are for those that have been physically and emotionally abused. These women are trying to get away from that and to a safe place. In one instance, a serial rapist claimed to be a “woman inside,” was admitted to a women’s shelter where he raped a number of the already abused women there. I believe he beat one to death. I do not blame the women in these shelters from feeling unsafe when a male (Sexually misidentified or not) insists on being allowed into one.

    • What Vasu means about not having any prior government experience is Ben Carson is not corrupt like most politicians in government.

  2. The apostle Paul wrote in I Corinthians Chapter 7:

    “It is good for a man not to touch a woman, but because of prevailing immoralities, let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband.

    “The husband must render to his wife the obligations that are due her, and similarly the wife to her husband…

    “Do not deprive each other, except by mutual agreement for a time to devote yourselves unhindered by prayer; and come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you on account of your lack of self-control.”

    (The apostle Paul’s words here suggest regulated or restricted sexual activity, even within marriage! Augustine and Aquinas taught sex is intended only within marriage and only for procreation.)

    “I say this by way of concession, not as a regulation. I wish all were as I am (celibate), but each person has his own gift from God, the one in this direction, the other in that.

    “To the single and the widows, I say that it is good for them to remain as I am (celibate); but if they cannot restrain their passions, let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn (with desire).

    “To the married couples I command — not really I but the Lord — that the wife must not leave her husband; and in case she does separate, she must either stay single or make up with her husband. And the husband must not divorce his wife.

    “…if the unbeliever wants to separate, let there be separation…”

    (Jesus forbade divorce, except in the case of unfaithfulness. And here we see Paul forbidding divorce, except in the case of an unbeliever demanding separation!)

    “Regarding the unmarried I have no divine injunction, but as one who has received mercy from the Lord to be trustworthy, I give my opinion… it is good for a person to remain in his present situation.

    “Are you united to a wife? do not seek release. Are you unattached to a woman? Do not seek a wife. But in case you marry, you do not sin; nor does the unmarried woman sin if she marries…

    “The single person is concerned with the Lord’s affairs, how to please the Lord, but the married person is concerned with things of the world, how to please his wife; he has divided interests.

    “The unmarried woman or the virgin is interested in the Lord’s affairs, that she may be dedicated to Him in body and spirit; but the married woman is concerned with things of the world, how she may please her husband.”

    “I mention this for your own good, not to throw a rope around you but to promote proper behavior and undisturbed devotion to the Lord.”

    I’ll take the conservative Christian opposition to LGBT rights seriously when they condemn birth control, divorce, and fornication just as strongly.

    • Vasu: When you become a Christian , study the bible and understand it, then we’ll talk. Right now they are just hollow words that you twist and distort. And as far as Dr. Carson, he has more class and intelligence than you could ever hope to have. So stop trying to disrespect him. You really are a typical radical Leftists..
      The LGBT has equal rights. They want special rights. Which includes invading biological women’s shelters and bathrooms. They DO NOT belong there!!!

      • Jim P: SO TRUE THANK YOU!! On a personal note I want to thank you for defending me against that wacko on another story. I know I was correct in what I was saying, but it helps when people like you agree with me and defend me….

    • We’re not talking marriage here. You are. We’re talking about FREAKS or PERVERTS invading the space of women in a shelter. They are there precisely for that reason. To escape the Freaks and Perverts.

  3. Of course Dr. Carson is correct in his statement and not backing down with his decision barring transgender “women” from shelters designed for biological women. Just because these transgenders ” THINK” they are women,or prtending to be a woman, doesn’t make it so. Women staying at these shelters are usually escaping being abused , raped,or battered by men. So they should be able to feel safe and not live in fear they might be assaulted or raped by these very confused and mentally ill transgenders.
    I am really sick to death of these people keep pushing and demanding more and more. Ignoring everyone’s rights and safety. I may not like what your lifestyle consists of. In GOD’s eye you are an abomination. As well as mine. But I have to accept you have rights. BUT that does not include you staying in a women’s shelter or using a female’s bathroom….. Enough is enough!

    • Linda M : Of course, your summary of the situation is correct. Allowing men who pretend to be women into women’s shelters is like licensing a fox to enter the henhouse to “protect” the chickens !!! It is patently absurd !!! They are the dangers whom the sheltered women need to ESCAPE !!!

  4. Most definitely, transgenders have no place in a only woman centers, the fact that makes already affected women feel uncomfortable it’s a sign that it should not be allowed, transgenders men can defend themselves with other men…however a woman cannot defend herself against a one of this individuals

  5. Sounds good to ME . . . check their DNA. If it’s a man (by that test) – THROW them out, IN HANDCUFFS. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (KEEP America Great Again0.

  6. I totally agree with Dr Carson. Battered women have enough issues without adding more problems. You cannot treat everyone the same because everyone does not have the exact same issues. Transgender person’s issues are not the same. There are children involved in most cases with battered women.
    Enough is enough!

    • No men should be in battered women shelters, period. They can “identify” as transgender all they want but women shelters are not the place for nonsense.

  7. Absolutely Secretary Carson is correct…this transgender thing needs to stop…plenty of people want to be tall or short or thin or not bald or whatever and they are not. You have to learn to live with the disappointment of life. If they’ve gone through the whole change that’s one thing but just saying it doesnt make it so. I dont have much sympathy, talk to me after you’ve had a decade or more of painful monthlies, bloating mood swings etc.etc..and all the other things women suffer…if you”re a biological male. I dont want you in the bathroom, the shelter or on the sports team..

  8. If these transgenders are in fear of their lives then maybe they should start their own shelter. Theses confused people dont belong in women’s shelters dont belong in women’s sports or our bathrooms. There are perverts that play on this and use it to their advantage and the disadvantage for unsuspecting females and all children. These are choices they make they need to learn to deal with it like they have for many years. So I agree with Dr Carson

  9. Confused men probably don’t belong in men’s shelters, much less women’s shelters. Confused men who think they are women may get all the mutilating operations they can and still won’t be women. They cannot change their chromosomes.

    Confused men who think they are women want to be in a women’s shelter now. A few years from now many will want to be men again and will want more surgery to reverse what surgery they had. Who pays for all this very expensive surgeries? It would seem money would be much better spent to provide psychological and psychiatric counseling. Even perhaps some demonic deliverance for some.

  10. I agree and stand with Dr. Ben Carson on this. These Males claiming to be female are looking for future targets to prey on and have no rights being in women’s shelters

  11. I support Dr. Ben Carson’s comments and point of view.
    I think it is possible to have a separate area for transgender men who feel they need a shelter or go to a male shelter if there are any.

  12. Do you think AOC or some of the dumb democrats are qualified?? Dr. Ben Carson is one of the most brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital and that job he has now is nothing compared to what he used to do. So get on with your lives Democrat’s and shut up. You guys can’t distinguish who is brilliant or not!!!

      • AOC and her ilk started out corrupted by Soros cash. She and Ohmar have already been found guilty of finance corruption. I guess it gets swept under the rug since they are Democrats. If President Trump had one corrupt dollar it would be an impeachment. Yes, the only standard some folks have is the double standard.

  13. Let them use a separate pay 💰. restroom and keep them away from the other people!!They aren’t they same so don’t let them mix in with normal people!

  14. We live in the greatest country on the planet. We can be whatever sex we choose to be.
    So if you are a man and you want to be woman, check into a surgery center on your way to the women’s shelter and get your “ package” removed first.
    Ben is a great person and doctor. Whenever he has delivered a baby, I’m sure it only took him a few seconds to determine, boy ?or girl?( the only 2 options at birth)
    If xyou want option 2 , then you need to look like option 2 when they check you at the door of the woman’s shelter. And to Ben, please continue to use common sense, you are making a difference, stay strong.

  15. Fck you, Vasu Murti. Get your long winded, preachy ass out of here. Nobody reads your crap anyway.
    What does “prior Government experience” have to do with right vs wrong? You can try to spin it any way you like but, HOMOSEXUALITY IS AN ABOMINATION.
    Women’s shelters are for biological WOMEN. Not men who think or “feel” they are women. Fck their feelings and your too.

    • Toxic; He really upsets A LOT of people. Especially me now. I was berated by some vegan fanatic on another Culture Watch story for making a joke about Vasu and his views about being a vegan and etc. But thank goodness other posters defended me. What really upsets me is that he is this radical Leftists and he’s a Hindu. He keeps quoting bible passages that he has no conception of their meanings. Or twisting their meanings.
      I know several of us asked Culture Watch to bar him. Or at least limit his propaganda. But they haven’t yet.
      He just keeps up his cut and paste BS over and over again. It’s maddening !!!So no worries about cussing. I do(in my head) every time there is a new story and I know his drivel will be there…..

    • Fornication is an “abomination,” too. The apostle Paul wrote in I Corinthians Chapter 7:

      “It is good for a man not to touch a woman, but because of prevailing immoralities, let every man have his own wife and let every woman have her own husband.

      “The husband must render to his wife the obligations that are due her, and similarly the wife to her husband…

      “Do not deprive each other, except by mutual agreement for a time to devote yourselves unhindered by prayer; and come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you on account of your lack of self-control.”

      (The apostle Paul’s words here suggest regulated or restricted sexual activity, even within marriage! Augustine and Aquinas taught sex is intended only within marriage and only for procreation.)

      “I say this by way of concession, not as a regulation. I wish all were as I am (celibate), but each person has his own gift from God, the one in this direction, the other in that.

      “To the single and the widows, I say that it is good for them to remain as I am (celibate); but if they cannot restrain their passions, let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn (with desire).

      “To the married couples I command — not really I but the Lord — that the wife must not leave her husband; and in case she does separate, she must either stay single or make up with her husband. And the husband must not divorce his wife.

      “…if the unbeliever wants to separate, let there be separation…”

      (Jesus forbade divorce, except in the case of unfaithfulness. And here we see Paul forbidding divorce, except in the case of an unbeliever demanding separation!)

      “Regarding the unmarried I have no divine injunction, but as one who has received mercy from the Lord to be trustworthy, I give my opinion… it is good for a person to remain in his present situation.

      “Are you united to a wife? do not seek release. Are you unattached to a woman? Do not seek a wife. But in case you marry, you do not sin; nor does the unmarried woman sin if she marries…

      “The single person is concerned with the Lord’s affairs, how to please the Lord, but the married person is concerned with things of the world, how to please his wife; he has divided interests.

      “The unmarried woman or the virgin is interested in the Lord’s affairs, that she may be dedicated to Him in body and spirit; but the married woman is concerned with things of the world, how she may please her husband.”

      “I mention this for your own good, not to throw a rope around you but to promote proper behavior and undisturbed devotion to the Lord.”

      I’ll take the conservative Christian opposition to LGBT rights seriously when they condemn birth control, divorce, and fornication just as strongly.

  16. ….and another thing Vasu- if you stick up for any kind of sinful behavior, you’re certainly no “Christian”. You’re a troll spouting Bible verses.

    • The “Christians” I encounter revel in fornication and deride anyone not “getting it” as a real loser. The apostle Paul wrote in I Corinthians, “It is reported there is fornication among you gentiles…” and that far from mourning this evil deed, they were rejoicing in it. Isn’t *that* sticking up for “any kind of sinful behavior”? Proudly putting a pregnant teen on display is antithetical to the New Testament, even if she chose life.

      • Many people of the Christian faith, whatever the denomination, have never fornicated and never will. Whereas also many people of the Christian faith, whatever the denomination, have fornicated and feel ashamed about it. Many times fornication is driven by peer pressure, whether in school or the armed services of a nation. That does not excuse it, but it may explain it. Nobody can explain why you or whomever has never met a single one of them. Perhaps a person is what he or she attracts. People of homosexual orientation are told that they should not be ashamed of who they are. That is fine. But what about their lifestyles? Well, outside the context of the spread of pathogens, their lifestyles are nobody else’s business except god’s. That’s not really the issue, though. The problem is politics. We see a lot of crap from every side. This manifests as as an extreme lack of love, and lack of forgiveness; forgiveness being something almost exclusively encouraged by Christianity among the many faiths of the world.

      • Vasu Murti: Do not get me started on YOUR religion. But you keep coming on these Conservative websites quoting bible passages that are just hollow words to you. You keep asking us “Christians ” why do you do this and that? Why are YOU such a liar, hypocrite and fraud????

  17. Women are AT the shelters because they’ve been abused, physically, mentally, emotionally. They are there to feel SAFE, and get help! Ben Carson is spot on, transgender, or men who think they’re women DO NOT belong there!

  18. Vasu, how does anyone have experience until they try something for the first time?! Now, Mr. Carson has experience, and he cares. He is trustworthy.

  19. As a former domestic violence sufferer, I would have freaked if a man entered and slept in the shelter with us….they have the right to establish their own shelters, bathrooms, etc….but to force or expect heterosexual folks to feel safe, comfortable or inviolate is unconstitutional.

  20. Ben Carson is right. Would a transgender woman who changed into a man go to a mans shelter? She is still a woman around a bunch of real men and we know what will happen. So womens shelters are only for biological women and the same for mens shelters. This is so ridiculous, you dont know whose who anymore. SMH

  21. Dr Carson is 100% correct. The shelter is for “sheltering” women who have been victims of abuse from MEN. It would be horrifying to them. Keep the males away.

  22. Can’t the majority of Americans see how ridiculous it is to allow adults to play dress up, the LORD created the sexes, there are TWO, male and female, live by the law of GOD
