Dr. Ben Carson traveled into hostile liberal territory on Tuesday when he went on “The View,” which is a known liberal show that so far left it makes Obama almost seem centered.
The esteemed neurosurgeon was actually treated respectfully and even seemed to draw the admiration from the show’s hosts, who generally despise anybody that’s even remotely close to conservative. Even the audience gave him a loud round of applause for his views on welfare.
When asked by actor Terry Crews if he thought that the welfare system was racist, Carsonn replied in an eloquent manner, saying:
“When you rob someone of their incentive to go out there and improve themselves, you are not doing them any favors. When you take somebody and pat them on the head and say, ‘There, there, you poor little thing. I’m going to give you food stamps. Let me give you housing subsidies, let me give you free health care because you can’t do that, because it’s those people over there who are causing you to have your problems.’ What would be much more empowering is to use our intellect and our resources to give those people a way up and out.”
This is something many conservatives also believe, that rewarding those who don’t make an effort isn’t the best way to get them back on their feet. However even though it goes against basically every liberal concept when it comes to helping the needy, they still applauded him and seemed to agree.
Who knows, perhaps Carson was able to open the minds of some liberal viewers?
