Carson Reminds Us Hes Insane: Remember That Amateurs Built The Ark And Professionals Built The Titanic

Dr. Ben Carson has what can be called a questionable grasp on reality and thats being generous. This grasp on reality is more tenuous than the grasp that the University of Michigans kicker has on a football (too soon?) and he reminded us of this again Friday when he took to Twitter to condemn professionalism and attack people who know what theyre doing.

Political amateurism

Carson has a questionable grasp of science, but since hes a neurosurgeon, he should at least understand and grasp the importance of knowing what youre talking about.

Should, but clearly doesnt. Remember, this is the same Carson who claimed Darwin was encouraged by Satan to come up with the theory of evolution, who claimed the Holocaust might have been halted if the Germans had guns, that the Constitution was written only for Christians and who claimed victory in a debate with a leading atheist because he said he didnt come from a monkey.

This is the same Carson who told the world that he didnt believe in evolution (you cant believe in evolution anymore than you can believe in gravity), who wants to silence liberal speech and who wants to do away with all subsidies. He, like most conservatives, seems to be against professionals or, rather, professionals who tell them things they dont want to hear.

So in light of all that, his Twitter comment Friday attacking professionals and professionalism doesnt come across as anything out of the norm:


Its also important to remember that it was an amateur farm boy from Tatooine who destroyed the Death Star, not a professional military. The moral of the story, clearly, is to fire everyone in our military and contract amateur farm boys from Tatooine.

Or…we can stop comparing fiction and reality. I mean, really, both are solid options.

Also, as a post-script: professionals built the Titanic, but it was almost certainly cost-cutting (also known as capitalism) that contributed to sinking it.

      Ben Adolf Hitler Carson is scary. His grasp on reality is slipping further and further every day. I teach college history, and am a moderate. If brother Ben wins, I will personally help start the next American Revolution. The GOP/Tea Party wants to finish destroying education in American and thereby create an uneducated low class of unskilled workers that will be easily controlled. Women better learn to walk 3 steps behind and to the left of the man they are with. If they take the White House, America will become a third World nation and likely be at war with the rest of the world before 1 term is done.
