Ben Carson Won’t Back Down To FUROR Over Saying a Muslim Should Not Be Allowed Into The Presidency

Wow the media is really racking up some points for the Democratic party based on the question the Donald got in his townhall rally about Muslims. This morning F. Chuck Todd got Carson to say that Islam was incompatible with the U.S. Constitution and a Muslim should not be allowed to be president.

Watch below:

While he seems pretty reasonable in that position given how extreme the Koran is, this just lit a firestorm as Muslim groups came out of the woodwork to criticize him:

But, it doesn’t look like he’s backing down:

I don’t see a problem here. And neither do many Americans:

The wisdom of so publicly excluding an entire religion from the presidency aside, Carson has plenty of people who feel just like he does. A Gallup poll in June showed 38 percent of Americans said they would not support a Muslim candidate for president. The only less-desirable characteristics tested were being an atheist (40 percent) and a socialist (50 percent).

But you can bet the press is gonna make as much as they can out of this in order to hurt the GOP. Bastards.

    Hope Carson’s security is up to snuff.

    He’s correct. Sharia is incompatible with the constitution. I love all this trotting out of kids. How venal, adults should fight their own battles.

    The problem with Islam not conforming to the standards of the Constitution is the same problem that communism has.

    They both impose their own moral standards as legal standards. With Communism, its ‘the greater good’, or as Marx said; “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need”. With Islam, it’s the Shariah standard that drives ISIS to behead those suspected of witchcraft.

    By having a state-endorsed moral standard, they both fail to conform to the standards in the First Amendment, Freedom of Religion. Their collectives both reject the idea of individual rights, and you can get much more basic than the individual freedoms of speech and thought.

    Nazi Germany was another good example of a system where moral and legal standards are one in the same. The state decides what ideas are good and bad, and they bring consequences against anyone who doesn’t conform.

    But it’s easy to see the fascination that socialists have with Islam. They are examples of what a government with absolute control is capable of.
