Carson doubles down on no Muslims in the White House

BY JONATHAN EASLEY

Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is standing by his view that a Muslim should not be president of the United States, telling The Hill in an interview on Sunday that whoever takes the White House should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.”

Carson ignited a media firestorm in a Sunday morning interview with Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press," in which he said he “would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.” “I absolutely would not agree with that,” Carson said.

In an interview with The Hill, Carson opened up about why he believes a Muslim would be unfit to serve as commander in chief.

“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”

Carson said that the only exception he’d make would be if the Muslim running for office “publicly rejected all the tenants of Sharia and lived a life consistent with that.”



“Then I wouldn’t have any problem,” he said.

However, on several occasions Carson mentioned "Taqiya," a practice in Shia Islam in which a Muslim can mislead nonbelievers about the nature of their faith to avoid persecution.

“Taqiya is a component of Shia that allows, and even encourages you to lie to achieve your goals,” Carson said.

Pushing back at the media firestorm over his remarks, Carson sought to frame himself as one of the few candidates running for president willing to tell hard truths.

“We are a different kind of nation,” Carson said. “Part of why we rose so quickly is because we wouldn’t allow our values or principles to be supplanted because we were going to be politically correct… part of the problem today is that we’re so busy trying to be politically correct, that we lose all perspective.”

Carson told The Hill that the question of a Muslim president is largely “irrelevant” because no Muslims are running in 2016. He said the question, which Todd is posing to all of the Republican presidential hopefuls who go on his show, “may well have been” gotcha journalism meant to trip the candidates up.

However, he acknowledged the question “served a useful purpose by providing the opportunity to talk about what Sharia is and what their goals are.”

“So often we get into these irrelevant things, because obviously if a Muslim was running for president, there would be a lot more education about Sharia, about Taqiya," Carson said.

The issue burst onto the scene last week when GOP front-runner Donald Trump declined to correct a questioner at a campaign rally who declared that President Obama is a Muslim.

Carson said that if put in the same situation, he would have corrected the person at the rally.

“I certainly would not have accepted the premise of a question like that,” Carson said.

However, Carson declined to criticize Trump, saying those kinds of on-the-spot moments can be difficult to handle in the heat of the moment.

“[Trump] may not have been ready for that,” Carson said. “I can tell you from experience a lot of these things are much easier when you’re quarterbacking from the armchair."

But we already have a Muslim in the White House.

Carson has either wised up to the machinations of the leftist press; or he realized they are not very intelligent people at all who cling to their ideology as if it gave them 'smarts.' Either way, Carson, Cruz and Fiorina seems to be handling the Clinton beholden media the best right now.

I was impressed with his above statement.

I'd include Trump in that group..

Article VI, clause 3,makes it clear that there is no religious test for office. However , Carson was not addressing the constitutional question. He was just addressing the issue SHOULD a Muslim be voted into the Presidency .

Chuck Todd had a hissy-fit over Carson saying this,claiming it was "un-American".

I want to see someone ask that little homosexual Jew what his opinion is of Muslims voting and owning property in Israel,serving in the Israeli Army and Air Force,or even being a commanding General or Prime Minister in Israel.

I'm betting he would trip all over himself making excuses to exclude Muslims in THOSE case.

Am I the only one that gets the creeps when I see and hear Chuck Todd?

Chuck Todd's wife/career partner/skirt is Kristen Todd,and she

is a communications professional and co-founder of Maverick Strategies and Mail, which provides direct mail and consulting services for Democratic candidates and progressive causes.

Todd is also a major Obomber Fan Boi. Has written one book about him,and co-authored another. I thought his head was going to explode when Trump called Obomber a Muslim.

Carson and Trump are coming close to taking a definitive and correct statement.

Islam is an aggressive communicable form of paranoid mental illness that is incompatable with a sane society.

Sharia 'law' is indeed inconsistent with the Constitution of this country.

Article VI, clause 3,makes it clear that there is no religious test for office. However , Carson was not addressing the constitutional question. He was just addressing the issue SHOULD a Muslim be voted into the Presidency…

He was addressing the problem of Muslims who advocate Shiria law. They could NOT take the oath of office, because Shiria is unconstitutional law.

The man is beyond creepy. -- He's more like a fanatical zealot of progressive socialism.

But they are religiously licensed to lie about what they want to do as part of their ultimate mission until they are ready to spring their trap.

" Carson doubles down on no Muslims in the White House "

Uh, Dr. Carson. You are a few days late. We already have one there.

R U up for organizing a group to drag him out ?
