Now that Republican presidential contender Ben Carson has established himself as a serious candidate for the White House, his critics on the left are bringing out the long knives.
One of the most telling examples of this is the GQ Magazine hit piece attacking the retired neurosurgeon in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Oregon, titled “F**k Ben Carson.”
Turns out, the article apparently serves as little more than a green light for other liberals to repeat the sentiment, as seen from actor Seth Rogen, who posted the following remark on social media the same day his new film, “Steve Jobs,” opened in theaters — in case you were looking for something NOT to do this weekend:
*Caution: Adult Language
Fuck you @RealBenCarson.
— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) October 9, 2015
It doesn’t take much effort to imagine the media reaction should a conservative actor, or publication, offer a similar assessment of President Barack Obama. Or the reaction from the NAACP, Al Sharpton, Whoopi Goldberg, and on and on.
Fox News’ Eric Bolling summed it up well during an appearance Friday on the “The O’Reilly Factor.”
What TGI Friday’s just did to cops has patrons
saying, ‘I’ll never set foot in your restaurant again’
“Near the bottom of the liberal food chain are white males, you can say anything you want about them,” Bolling said. “But even below that, at the very bottom, are black conservatives.”
Just ask Herman Cain. Or Clarence Thomas.
Rogen’s manufactured outrage was the result of Carson saying the Holocaust would have been “greatly diminished” if Jews had guns — a comment made to highlight a possible effect of strict gun control.
Thankfully, we have social media to put things into the proper perspective … with just the right amount of snark. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter that suggest Rogen may want to stick to acting:
I guess some people just aren’t ready for a black president. https://t.co/qv7mxsL3I2

@exjon @RealBenCarson In @Sethrogen ‘s defense, that paint can bong could really get you baked.

@exjon @EWErickson @RealBenCarson @Sethrogen One is a liberal icon. The other simply has saved thousands of lives.

@exjon Liberals have a tough time realizing that black men can actually think for themselves and be successful, which actually IS racism.

I guess hating on the black man is cool if he’s conservative. https://t.co/om0OV9gaBl

@exjon I imagine @RealBenCarson would be upset by what @Sethrogen said if he even knew who @Sethrogen is. #JuniorVarsity

.@Sethrogen Ever wonder why you act so threatened by @RealBenCarson? Cognitive disorder?

@Sethrogen @RealBenCarson You’re a disrespectful idiot, Seth. Why not disagree with facts and not vulgarity? Or are facts not on your side?
— LibertyCentric (@LibertyCentric) October 9, 2015
Hey @Sethrogen, you keep writing stoner movies and let the intellectuals like @RealBenCarson discuss how to run the country.

@MarkDice Since 2008, disliking Obama meant you were a racist, but not with Ben Carson. Double standard much?
