Breaking: Ben Carson says a Muslim should not be President of the US; CAIR comes out with both barrels

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2015

Earlier this morning I happened to catch Ben Carson on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd and I was astounded that Carson very forcefully said that a Muslim should not be President because Islam was incompatible with the US Constitution.  I knew immediately that all hell was going to break loose for Carson.

Update:  Here is what Powerline blog says about Carson’s statement.  “He had better batten down the hatches.” Hat tip: Paul

Update #2:  I feel for you South Carolinians!  Lindsey Graham demands that Carson apologize to Muslims, here.  BTW, pundits on Fox this evening suggested that Carson’s remark was likely supported by 80% of the American public and would actually help his candidacy.

Update September 21:  Frank Gaffney at the Center for Security Policy agrees with Carson and explains why.  LOL! He suggests that Obama is actually doing everything a Muslim Prez. might do anyway!  Click here.

Update #2 on September 21:  Both Trump and Cruz hang Carson out to dry.  Click here to see what I think of Trump and Cruz tonight.

Update September 22:  Carson says a Muslim could be President if he rejects Sharia Law! Hang in there Ben!

Update September 27:  Carson vindicated with exploding favorability numbers.

Watch Carson answer here:

The same question was asked of Gov. John Kasich and he waffled all over the place.  Then CNN contributor, the GOP establishment water-carrier, Hugh Hewitt*** jumped in to criticize Carson saying there shouldn’t be a religious test, demonstrating Hewitt’s ignorance about Islam.  Islam is a complete political system inseparable from the ‘religious’ aspects of the ‘faith.’

Now we see that the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is all over Carson for daring to utter such a politically incorrect opinion.

Take action!

Even if Carson is not your #1 choice for the 2016 nomination, you must right now go to facebook, twitter, and your e-mail lists and drum up support for Carson and an opinion that readers here share.  Push back the inevitable Left wing trashers who are probably already at work kissing up to CAIR and calling for Carson to get out of the race!

By the way, earlier in the program Todd asked Trump about the Muslim incident in New Hampshire last week, where an audience member questioned Obama’s ‘faith,’ and Trump said it wasn’t his job to defend the President, implying that the President was big boy and could take care of himself.  Besides, he went on to say, I doubt Obama is going to defend me when someone at a public event says something about me that I don’t like.

You can reach the Carson campaign at twitter (@realBenCarson) and here at his website.  Send him a message and ask that he stand firm!

***See what Breitbart said about Hewitt here earlier this past week.

  4. Listen to Muslim Killary Clinton in a live national TV interview on CBS “Face The Nation” that Iran sponsor the terrorist group that is attacking Israel. Muslim Killary Clinton is now trying to save her self in this election as a great American person and an experienced government official. September 20 2015. cbsnews.com/videos/hillary-clinton-returns-to-face-the-nation-after-four-years/

    Her decision to claim Iran as terrorist sponsor comes after she strongly expresses her opinion that Iran should have nuke power. On September 9 2015 Muslim Killary Clinton offered her most robust endorsement yet of the nuclear deal negotiated under the Obama administration between Iran and six world powers.

    We already have different rule and regulations for Muslim immigrants, bestowing upon them “super-citizen” status….above native born Americans.

        A son of a Muslim, and the stepson of another Muslim, is a Muslim. Or, he is an apostate. Is there any evidence that Obama gave up the ‘faith’ he was born into? And, frankly if he did give up Islam along the way, how come for all these years the Islamic fundamentalists have remained silent—apostasy is punishable by death. I haven’t heard any calls for that, have you?

      Kinda like, if you like your religion, you can keep your religion. Oh wait…that was abrogated.

      I hear CAIR is demanding Carson drop out of the race…because, according to CAIR, Carson doesn’t understand Islam or that the Constitution prohibits “religious tests.”

      Uh…CAIR, you’re confusing the Constitution with Shariah Law. They’re not the same or even remotely compatible, as your confusion demonstrates. It’s Shariah Law that demands “religious tests.” Flunk the Shariah test and you don’t have to worry your little head about anything anymore, much less getting “elected” to office. Carson didn’t call for, or advocate, a LAW, as in government force, to administer religious tests, which is what Art. VI prohibits. The voters give “tests” to candidates all the time to determine their qualifications. The candidates get graded at the ballot box. Dr. Carson’s 1st Amendment rights trump your Art. VI misinterpretation.

      Sorry, CAIR, you failed that basic civics “test.”
