Once again, the mainstream media's response to a gotcha' question exposes why they are not practicing good journalism.
In response to a question from NBC's Chuck Todd, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson opined that he would not support a Muslim as president of the United States.
From the main stream media reaction you would have thought Carson had used the "N" word or uttered an anti-Semite slur.
The liberal reaction means one of two things. First it could mean that liberals are ignorant of how Muslims practice their religion. This is disturbing, if they actually know so little about Muslims given our war against Islamic jihadists for the past decades. The other option is they are only looking to paint Carson as a bigot to pull down his favorables. This is contemptible, because journalists are supposed to report the news, not direct it.
Carson knows the truth about Islam.
Thanks to Glen Beck in his best selling It IS About Islam book, the lies about Islam have been clearly revealed.
Lie #1 - "Islam is the religion of peace and Islamic terrorists aren't really Muslims."
Lie #2 - "Islam is not much different than Christianity and Judaism."
Lie #3 - "Jihad is a peaceful, internal struggle, not a war against infidels."
Lie #4 - "Muslims don't actually seek to live under sharia, let alone impose it on others; there are so many interpretations of it anyway."
Lie #5 - "America is safe from sharia law."
Lie #6 - "The Caliphate is a fanciful dream."
Lie #7 - "Islam is tolerant of non-Muslims."
Lie #8 - "Addressing frustration, poverty, and joblessness in the Muslim world -- maybe even climate change -- will end terrorism."
Lie #9 - "Critics of Islam are bigots."
Lie #10 - "Islam respects the rights of women."
Lie #11 - "Iran can be trusted with a nuclear weapon."
Lie #12 - "The Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate, mainstream Islamic group."
Lie #13 - "Islam respects freedom of speech."
Sadly, you can find many in the mainstream media that belief and repeat these lies.
Thank goodness Ben Carson is not blind to the truth. A practicing Muslim would be a terrible choice for an American president because his belief system is against the values inherent to the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.
