'Conservative Hero' Dr. Ben Carson Responds to Outrage Over Anti-Gay NAMBLA Remarks: VIDEO


Conservative hero Dr. Ben Carson appeared to try to apologize for disgusting remarks he made earlier this week to Sean Hannity comparing gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals. Students at Johns Hopkins University, where he is slated to serve as commencement speaker, are petitioning for his withdrawal.

Said Carson to Andrea Mitchell, in a kind of Santorum-speak:

"As a Christian, I have a duty to love all people and that includes people who have other sexual orientations, and I certainly do, and never had any intention of offending anyone. What I was basically saying, and if anyone was offended I apologize to you, but what I was basically saying is there is no group — I wasn’t equating those things, I don’t think they are equal. If you asked me for an apple and I gave you an orange, you would say 'well that’s not an orange.' And then I’d say well there’s a banana…'that’s not an apple either.' And there’s a peach…'that’s not an apple either.' But it doesn’t mean that I’m equating the banana and the orange and the peach. In the same way, I’m not equating those things."

Watch Carson try to apologize, and the Hannity segment, AFTER THE JUMP...

Here's the Hannity segment:

  1. Ben Carson is a disgusting creep. I wonder if he is brain-damaged.

  5. Same old $hit from same old bigot :
    "If I offended anyone....
    "Some of my best friends....
    "I was quoted out of context....

    "Let spotted leaves fall as they fall" Sylvia Plath once said.....

    We don't have time for these left behind mothers.
    Bigotry is now being called out everywhere......I only wish that Oscar Wilde was here to see it.

  7. One only has to read stuff he's said in the past to know that sooner or later he would implode,especially with the hero worship he's gotten at Faux news.

  10. It's incredible that someone so educated can be so closed-minded.

  11. "If I gave you an orange, you'd say, we'll that's not an orange".

    Hmm, and this guy operates on people's brains...

  12. If I were to comment to Ben that there were no dung beetles, no African wild dogs, just a few cockroaches, slight amount rat droppings and African Americans homophobes at the March CPAC, I wonder if he feel offended..

  14. "legal arrangements" As a black man he should no better than offering separate but equal.

  15. Why is it so difficult to apologize? "I am sorry, what I said was hurtful and wrong and from now on I think differently."

  16. First the 55 year olds reproducing like rabbits in the Supremes' imagination. Now we get a side order of fruit salad. Colbert makes a better case for these people than they do themselves.

  17. I'm sick and tired of conservative-speak analogies that use animals and fruit.

  18. If I asked you for a marriage and you gave me a civil union, I would say 'well that’s not a marriage.'

  20. Again...Everyone is sick and tired of these blacks...It's time to bring back segregation...

  21. All he's talking about is fruit... is he trying to tell us something about himself?

  22. Typical neegroee.

  23. Classic Non-Apology "Apology" with some additional "fruit" jabs thrown in for free. This man is allowed to treat human beings?

  24. I would never go to a black doctor.

    Posted by: Christo | Mar 29, 2013 8:12:24 PM

  25. So if I start comparing Dr. Carson to an ape or a chimp he won't get offended because, you know, they're obviously not the same thing.

    btw, you can scream "racist" all you want in my direction but those spouting that out, I can assure you, have never lived in a black neighborhood.
