This Supposed Civil Rights Group Has Labeled Ben Carson As An Extremist.
The US Herald reported recently about President Obama and how he sought to relate to the people of India with his tough times as a black American. As usual, concerns of black Americans being “treated differently” because of the “color” of their skin, only applies to people who believe as the president does.
Dr. Ben Carson, the former Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon, does not seem to ever get a break. Carson made himself known to the world of politics when he had scorching speech at the Presidential Prayer Breakfast in 2013, which lead to many presidential eye rolls, and blistering attacks from every leftist website on the net.
So naturally, the closer we get to 2016 and Dr. Ben Carson's almost inevitable run, the leftist-political smear machine has begun to switch on. The first among many attacks to come, the Southern Poverty Law Center steps into the ring first.
According to the Daily Caller, Ben Carson now known as an “anti-gay extremist”, at least that is what the Southern Poverty Law Center labeled the 2016 hopeful. You heard that correctly. The once renowned neurosurgeon, who was made famous for being the first to separate conjoined twins at the head and awarded the presidential medal of freedom, is now on a watch list.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, who fancies themselves a “civil rights advocacy group”, placed Dr. Carson on their “Extremist Watch List” for his position on same-sex marriage. They consider his opposition to be “hateful” and worthy of the inclusion on their list.
So, who shares the list with Dr. Carson? Two men on their “featured profiles” page are labeled neo-nazis, and which is confirmed by the very definition on the page.
“Extremists in the U.S. come in many different forms – white nationalists, anti-gay zealots, black separatists, racist skinheads, neo-Confederates and more.“
So, why is he on this list. Well, he suggested in his book that we should not redefine marriage. Here is exact quote from his book America The Beautiful.
“If we can redefine marriage as between two men or two women or any other way based on social pressures as opposed to between a man and a woman, we will continue to redefine it in any way that we wish, which is a slippery slope with a disastrous ending, as witnessed in the dramatic fall of the Roman Empire.”
Apparently, opposing views, is a reason to be considered an “extremist.” Well, do not worry, that is not the only reason why the leftist front defines him that way. He also spoke at an event, and it was hosted by other people who oppose same-sex marriage.
That is not all though, apparently if you support a flat tax rate, you may be anti-gay. When he defined his view on what a flat tax should look like, he sources the Bible.
“What we need to do is come up with something simple. And when I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the first individual in the universe, God, and he’s given us a system. It’s called a tithe.”
This offense is known as “endorsing biblical economic practices for 21st century America”, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. With a little history in mind, one might say the SPLC strikes chord in the key of irony.
The lefty loonies' at SPLC have a “hate map” that was used by Floyd Lee Corkins, in August, 2012, to enter the lobby of the Family Research Council in D.C. to “to kill as many people as possible” and “smother Chick-fil-A sandwiches in their faces.”
The FBI blacklisted the group by removing links to them from its civil rights division's web page in March.
In May, the SPLC spread some more hate around. They view anyone who is opposed to Common Core to be “far-right extremists.” They claim any opposition is part of a “radical right scheme” to “eliminate public education”
For a group that is against hate, they seem to spew an awful lot of it.

Is Dr. Ben Carson an “extremist”, or is the Southern Poverty Law Center an agenda-driven-leftist smear group?
