Trump Transition

Nancy Pelosi slams Ben Carson. What is she so afraid of?

Peter Doocy reports from New York

 

Did you hear what the Democrat Party’s leader in Congress just said about Dr. Ben Carson? 

I’m proud to call Dr. Ben a personal friend. He is the very definition of a good man, a gentleman, and a great human being. He defines “accomplished.” 

Ben is the living definition of “the American Dream” that people the world over believe in. 

President Obama talks about giving "hope" to people of color. But anyone can talk. Dr. Ben doesn’t talk, he walks the walk. He leads by example. 

If a white Republican political leader called a black super-achiever “disturbingly unqualified” wouldn’t liberals and the media immediately label him or her as a "racist?" Of course they would. And they’d be right.

Ben may be America’s single greatest living African-America super-achiever. He rose from poverty, in a single parent household in the ghettos of Baltimore, to the world’s greatest brain surgeon, multiple-times national bestselling author, and then GOP Presidential candidate. Today he is President-elect Donald Trump’s choice for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Yet liberal Democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi see all of those amazing accomplishments and call him “disconcertedly and disturbingly unqualified.” She actually says Dr. Ben doesn’t have “the credentials” for the job.

Really? If a white Republican political leader called a black super-achiever “disturbingly unqualified” wouldn’t liberals and the media immediately label him or her as a "racist?" Of course they would. And they’d be right.

What is Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party afraid of? That a talented, brilliant black man who has lived in public housing, who overcame poverty in the same inner city projects he will now be in charge of, might actually make a difference? 

Are they afraid Dr. Ben might actually give hope to black youth, instead of just talking about it?

Are they afraid Dr. Ben might break the vicious cycle of poverty in inner cities?

Are they afraid Dr. Ben might be able to teach and inspire black youth to achieve success, instead of playing “the blame game?”

Are they afraid Dr. Ben might counsel black America on the importance of having a father in every home?

Are they afraid Dr. Ben might actually work with President Donald Trump to provide a generation of black youth with jobs instead of a welfare check?

Are they afraid of Dr. Ben working hand-in-hand with President Donald Trump might create so much success that a new generation of black youth might actually wind up thinking positively about the Republican Party?

Because if that’s Nancy Pelosi’s thought process, I feel pity for the Democratic Party. That means they only care about black vote, not the quality of black lives. And that's a sin. 

If that’s the case, Nancy Pelosi and the leaders of the Democratic Party actually define “racist.”

This Republican-conservative patriot says...

Welcome and congratulations to Dr. Ben Carson.

Thank you for your discipline and sacrifice.

Thank you for your amazing accomplishments and credentials.

Thank you for being a role model for every youth living in poverty in America.

Thank you for being a great American.
