Being that Dr. Ben Carson dropped out of the Republican primary a few months ago, I had almost forgotten just how fucking batshit crazy the dude really is. He made sure to remind everyone of that little tidbit Tuesday night.
Given a primetime speaking slot at the Republican National Convention, the retired neurosurgeon and one-time GOP Presidential frontrunner delivered his trademarked warm, dulcet tones of religious-based nuttery. According to sources, the good doctor went off script and decided to riff on Saul Alinsky, Lucifer and the destruction of the United States of America under a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Beginning the speech on the subject of Republican unity, Carson told #NeverTrump conservatives that they couldn’t risk a Clinton White House. Why? “It won’t be four or eight years because she will be appointing people who will have an effect on generations, and America may never recover from that, ” according to the Trump surrogate.
This was when he got his juices flowing. Feeling his oats — one could almost see his eyes — Carson then spun a yarn about how conservative boogeyman Alinsky acknowledged Lucifer in a book, so therefore, Hillary Clinton worships the Devil!
“Now, one of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors was Saul Alinsky. And her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky. This was someone she greatly admired. And let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky. So he wrote a book called Rules for Radicals. It acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom.
Now think about that. This is our nation where our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator — a nation where our Pledge of Allegiance says we are one nation under God. This is a nation where every coin in our pockets and every bill in our wallet says ‘In God We Trust.’ So, are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer?”

Of course, the crowd loved it, because while the theme of the night was supposed to be Make America Work Again, it was really Say Terrible Shit About Shillary. Thus, no one in the audience really processed how utterly idiotic and incoherent that shit really was. Seriously, because Alinsky mentioned Lucifer, and Hillary wrote a thesis about him, then Clinton is an agent of Satan and unqualified to be president? Is that what we’re going with?
Your Grand Old Party, folks.
