Dr. Ben Carson Fires Up CPAC Crowd: ‘Don’t Let the Left Shut You Up’

Dr. Ben Carson gave a fiery speech at CPAC Saturday, rousing the crowd by railing against political correctness and attacks he’s endured from the liberal media, saying that the people with common sense in this country have been “beaten into submission,” encouraging people to “stop being intimidated” and proudly telling the crowd, “Don’t let the left shut you up!”

Carson cried, “I will continue to defy the PC police who have tried, in many cases, to shut me up! I actually find them pretty amusing.” He went down a list of all the comments he’s made that he accused the media of distorting and taking out of context, saying they “repeat these lies over and over again because they cannot argue the actual facts.” Carson talked about helping the “decent, hard-working Americans” in that infamous 47 percent who are looking for help.

However, Carson also emphasized it’s important for the conservative moment to unite, so he advised that if the person you back doesn’t win a primary, call them a “RINO” or “teabagger” if you must, but at the end of the day, “vote for him” because a united front is how conservatives win at the end of the day.
