Ben Carson Now Blaming the Holocaust on Gun Control (Watch)

*Ben Carson has riled the Anti-Defamation League with a fresh round of offensive comments – this time regarding the Holocaust.

In an interview on CNN Thursday, the GOP presidential candidate blamed the Holocaust on Nazi gun control.

Host Wolf Blitzer read a section from Carson’s book, A More Perfect Union, in which Carson writes:

German citizens were disarmed by their government in the late 1930s, and by the mid-1940s Hitler’s regime had mercilessly slaughtered six million Jews and numerous others whom they considered inferior … Through a combination of removing guns and disseminating deceitful propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.
“I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed,” Carson elaborated in the interview. “There’s a reason these dictatorial people take the guns first.”

The Anti-Defamation League pounced. The group, which monitors anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry, has long opposed the use of Nazi comparisons in the U.S. gun control debate.

“The idea that supporters of gun control are doing something akin to what Hitler’s Germany did to strip citizens of guns in the run-up to the Second World War is historically inaccurate and offensive, especially to Holocaust survivors and their families,” Abraham Foxman, the ADL’s national director at the time, said in 2013.

  1. The good doctors knows.

    The 2d amendment protects the 1st., that’s why it’s the Second. The militia was only one of the vehicles which spearheaded that protection. in areas of early America where there were no militias, they still were in the possession of firearms – for food and protection against government interventions – foreign and domestic. It was their “inalienable right.” Could the Nazi’s have taken away NRA guns and put NRA members in concentration camps?

    Uh – no.

    One out of every four humans on the planet is Chinese. In China, no one is allowed to register for or to buy a gun no matter how thorough a background check. No one. No one can write a letter to the editor in China – why? – because no “editors” are permitted – no one is allowed to speak out like they tried in Tennimin Square – no one in China is also allowed a Facebook account. So wise up Liberal media.

    No one is taking anyone’s right to own guns away – especially you – you don’t want a gun? Then don’t buy one. You don’t want anyone else to own a gun? Then move to China. You will all be very happy there.

    Have a nice day –
