The Progressive hit media are frantically circling the wagons, probably formulating a potent Alinsky Rule # 5 offense against sage Ben Carson. Just yesterday, Media Matters went into full attack mode. It appears the leftists were blindsided by the transparency and unassuming integrity of this gifted brain surgeon. No doubt they are embarrassed by their previous sycophantic accolades heralding his exceptional accomplishments in his chosen field of pediatric neurosurgery. A case in point may be the acclaim lauded upon Dr. Carson by feminist Christine Gorman in her 2001 piece in Time Magazine, Super Surgeon. How could she have known the subject of her acclaim would challenge the fundamental tenets of her liberalism a dozen years later?
Meanwhile on the Left, an ominous silence reigns, save the humming of search engines delving into every minute reach of the neurosurgeon's past, seeking some shred of damning impurity to indict him as unqualified for the pristine art of politics. After all, these Alinsky tactics worked swimmingly against West, Cain, and Palin, and almost vetoed the lifetime appointment of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas courtesy of one Anita Hill. Should none emerge, the malevolent investigators will simply invent one emulating the famous declaration of a former Secretary of State by shouting, "What difference, at this point, does it [the truth] make?" That premise is restated by a Florida Congresswoman who, when caught in a blatant lie, exclaimed, "It [the truth] doesn't matter!" Fully aware of the coming tsunami of vilification from the Left, Dr. Carson declared there were no skeletons in his closet. To the threat, he simply shrugged implying "Molon labe! -- Bring it on!"
This will be an interesting story if he decides to go into politics, that much i know.
