Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has once again left people wondering if he really just said that.
In a desperate attempt to make himself seem like a viable presidential candidate, Carson’s vow to reverse President Barack Obama’s policy allowing up to 10,000 Syrian refugees to seek shelter in the U.S. comes days after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
Bringing people into this country from that area of the world, I think, is a huge mistake. Because why wouldn’t [ISIS] infiltrate [the refugees] with people who are ideologically opposed to us? It would be foolish for them not to do that.
Like a true conservative, Carson knows the refugees need help, but expects everyone else to do it.
We should use our expertise and resources to help get them resettled — over there — and to support them over there. But to bring them here under these circumstances is a suspension of intellect.
Carson goes on to boast of his big frontal lobes as a basis for his intellect. Seriously? The numerous times his comments have broken the stupid meter has me questioning the existence of his frontal lobes.
You know that the human brain has these big frontal lobes, as opposed to other animals, because we can engage in rational thought processing.
Hmm...I have to wonder if he was being rational when he was going after people with rocks, bricks, baseball bats and hammers. Or maybe he damaged his frontal lobes at the age of 14 which lead him to stab someone — so he claims.
