Ben Carson is the sweetest man, and it is beyond me why anyone would want to vandalize his home! The former neurosurgeon was one of the original candidates in the 2016 presidential election, but ended up dropping out before the primaries. I was sad to see this happen because I was ready to advocate him all the way.
Unfortunately, we have found ourselves in a war without rules or direction. No one really knows what we are fighting for anymore. It’s sad, really.
Fox News reports the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development official’s house in Virginia was vandalized with revealed “hateful rhetoric about President Trump.”
“Regarding all of the racial and political strife emanating from the events in Charlottesville last weekend, let me relate a story. Several years ago we bought a farm in rural Maryland. One of the neighbors immediately put up a Confederate flag. A friend of ours who is an African-American three-star general was coming to visit and immediately turned around concluding that he was in the wrong place. Interestingly, all the other neighbors immediately put up American flags shaming the other neighbor who took down the Confederate flag. More recently our home in Virginia along with that of a neighbor was vandalized by people who also wrote hateful rhetoric about President Trump. We were out of town, but other kind, embarrassed neighbors cleaned up most of the mess before we returned.
In both instances, less than kind behavior was met by people taking the high road. We could all learn from these examples. Hatred and bigotry unfortunately still exists in our country and we must all continue to fight it, but let’s use the right tools. By the way, that neighbor who put up the Confederate flag subsequently became friendly. That is the likely outcome if we just learn to be neighborly and to get to know each other.”
There are crazy people across the board but I think people could really take a lesson from Carson. His home was literally vandalized and he is still preaching about love.
There’s no telling why his home would have been doused with hatred other than the fact that he is a Christian Conservative who supports the president. That in itself is a shame. To be bullied simply for supporting the person in charge of country.
