Carson: PC culture is destroying the U.S.

Ben Carson slammed the politically correct culture he argued is destroying America during the GOP presidential debate on CNBC.

Carson challenged the idea that his participation on the corporate boards of companies who may hold different ideological beliefs than his own is questionable. During the third GOP presidential debate, Carson pushed back against what he perceived to be political correctness.

"Why would you serve on a company whose policies seemed to run counter to your views on homosexuality?" asked Carl Quintanilla, a CNBC moderator.

"Well obviously you don't understand my views on homosexuality," Carson said. "I believe that our Constitution protects everybody regardless of their sexual orientation or any other aspect. I also believe that marriage is between one man and one woman and that there is no reason that you can't be perfectly fair to the gay community. They shouldn't automatically assume that because you believe that marriage is between one man and one woman that you are a homophobe. And this is one of the myths that the Left perpetrates on our society and this is how they frighten people and get people to shut up. That's what the PC culture is all about and it's destroying this nation."
