Secretary Ben Carson: America’s Dr. Politically Incorrect

October 25, 2019

“This whole concept of political correctness … it’s going to destroy our nation.” That was the no-nonsense response of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson to Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.) earlier this week. Wexton was trying for a “gotcha” moment in a congressional hearing when she asked Dr. Carson if he would “apologize” for being quoted for expressing concern over “big, hairy men” trying to gain entry into an Alaska women’s homeless shelter.

I could not have said it better. On yesterday’s {LISTEN HERE →} edition of Washington Watch, Dr. Carson – or Dr. Politically Incorrect as I’ve called him – joined me to make it clear he will not kowtow to political correctness. “It’s foolishness because, you know, the First Amendment guarantees people freedom of speech. What political correctness does is it makes people afraid to express themselves. So coming in the back door, it actually suppresses the First Amendment. And we need to be very, very wary of anything that takes away our constitutional rights.”

Secretary Carson went on to nail the consequences of caving into the Left’s tantrums. “Anything that doesn’t agree with them is a hateful word, and that’s what I mean when I said we need to be more mature than that. That’s what I might expect from a third-grade playground. If we make everything such a sensitive subject and everybody has to sit down and filter everything that they say, and we’re listening carefully to their words instead of what their meaning is, what do we become as a society and as a people? We’ve got to nip it in the bud before it gets to the place where everybody just is silent. And they can’t say anything because it’s going to offend somebody.”

He is speaking up for what is a commonsense policy: sexually-assaulted and abused women seeking shelter should not be forced to sleep next to men who think or act like they are women when they are biological men. But he is also speaking up for free speech and freedom of religion. The Left portrays the Trump administration as lacking compassion for people who need housing, but the opposite is true. It is the Department of House and Urban Development under Secretary Carson’s leadership that has expanded access to people who need housing because they are once again allowing faith-based organizations to partner with the government who were excluded during the Obama years. This inclusion of faith-based organization helps meet the needs in local communities all across America.

The Obama administration required faith-based groups to leave their faith at the door and pushed bizarre policies that put men in women’s homeless shelters. Thankfully, we have a HUD Secretary who understands the principle that has guided America for centuries — equal rights for all, special rights for none. That’s what makes America work — not political correctness.

Christian Student Opted for her Faith over Failing Grade

 

The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to review the case of a high school student in Maryland who, despite threats of receiving a failing grade, refused to deny her faith by making a written profession of the Muslim conversion prayer.

Caleigh Wood, a Christian 11th-grade public school student in Maryland, was also forced to view a series of PowerPoint slides that stated, among other things, most Muslims’ faith is stronger than that of the average Christian…

Yale Founded to Fight Liberalism

Yale Founded to Fight Liberalism

It may come as surprise that when Yale University was founded on this day, October 16, 1701, it was by Congregationalist ministers unhappy with the growing liberalism at Harvard. It wasn’t called Yale then, of course, but rather the Collegiate School. The ministers donated forty books and declared their objective, that “Youth may be instructed in the Arts and Sciences who through the blessing of God may be fitted for Publick employment both in Church and Civil State.”

The huge campus of today, with over one hundred buildings was not conceived. In fact, the first classes were held in the residence of Rev. Abraham Pierson, its first rector. Not until 1745 was the school moved to New Haven and renamed Yale.

The name change was in honor of Elihu Yale, a successful merchant who made a donation of goods valued at $2,800. This was equivalent to the annual income of about fourteen medical doctors. The purpose of the renamed school was “To plant and under ye Divine blessing to propagate in this Wilderness, the blessed Reformed, Protestant Religion, in ye purity of its Order and Worship.”

Students were required to “live religious, godly and blameless lives according to the rules of God’s Word, diligently reading the Holy Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth; and constantly attend upon all the duties of religion, both in public and secret.” Prayer was a requirement. Furthermore every student was instructed to “…consider the main end of his study to wit to know God in Jesus Christ” and “to lead a Godly, sober life.”

For many years these high ideals were followed. One faculty member wrote around 1800, “It would delight your heart to see how the trophies of the cross are multiplied in this institution. Yale College is a little temple: prayer and praise seem to be the delight of the greater part of the students.”

But fathers cannot ensure the fidelity of their sons. Today Yale’s original ideals have faded. 😦 The school is a liberal institution with utterances and actions that are politically correct. One suspects that students are less likely to pray persistently than to engage in political protests.
