Dr. Ben Carson: I’m not Uncle Tom, they won’t silence me

Dr. Benjamin Carson appeared on Fox News Channel’s “America Live” Tuesday and answered his critics — all from the left.

“Boy, have you been attacked. A token you’ve been called, an Oreo, please pardon me for repeating these to you,” host Megyn Kelly began. Then she turned to comments made by MSNBC host Toure’.

“Most recently a commentator on a rival network said you’ve been embraced because you’re smart and helpful in assuaging white people’s guilt and went to on to say that you’re enjoying the GOP’s version of affirmative action because then people will get to put on a bumper sticker on their car saying ‘How can I be racist, I would have voted for Dr. Ben Carson?’ Your thoughts on the attacks on you?”

“Well, you know, if you don’t have anything useful to say then you attack people,” Carson said. “And you know, if you feel that your house of cards has been discovered and is starting to come unraveled, you become very desperate. You know, intelligent people tend to talk about the facts. They don’t sit around and call each other names. That’s what you can find on a third grade playground. This is something that we need to move beyond in this country, and let’s have a real discussion about the real facts. If somebody disagrees, let’s talk about why they disagree, let’s talk about the pros and cons, let’s see if we can find some accommodation. But to sit around and act like third graders is nonproductive.”
