The BBC reports…

US housing boss Ben Carson calls US slaves ‘immigrants’

7 March 2017 Last updated at 03:13 GMT

Ben Carson, the secretary of housing and urban development, has compared slaves to immigrants, on his first day in his new job.

In a 40-minute speech to staff, he praised immigrants who worked long hours to build a better future for their children.

“That’s what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity,” he told staff. “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they, too, had a dream.”

After criticism that he was being insensitive, Mr Carson later tweeted: “You can be an involuntary immigrant.”

Clearly designed to show us how stupid and insensitive Carson is…no doubt we’re supposed to think ‘How typical of a Trump man’.  The BBC even has time to bring us an update about Carson’s tweet.  What they can’t be bothered to report is that the blessed Obama said the same thing…From know the news site that the BBC so disdains….because it brings us the truth…

Here is Obama in 2015:

Certainly, it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves. There was discrimination and hardship and poverty. But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them. And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more.

Here is Carson:

That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.

    The clincher is that Carson is a Trump man. Therefore he is evil.

    Stalin was progressive left – so he was a good man. NYT thought so.

    The BBC have always had it in for the likes of Condoleeza, Colin as well as Thomas Sowell if they even bothered to find out about him. Basically the BBC require blacks as passive victims or else rioting and being feckless and drug-dependent.
    More concerns for them to report on-and more Gramsci-type identity segments to nurse and act as the shock troops for their ongoing revolution. Carson is a giant-a surgeon, Christian with a great back story. But too clever and too much integrity to be a leech for the Democratic Party there-and the Globalisation Worldwide Cartel that the BBC would desire.
    Funnily enough the likes of Obama,Goldberg and Jay Z are FAR more the house slaves of the liberal white elite than Carson , if we mean that it`s the House of Islam/Peace and the plantation is full of drugs and aborted foetuses with burned out cars with not a dad in sight.


    • Grimer says:

      Colin said in a documentary that in his class it was him and some Jewish kids competing for top of the class. He said it made him as a student and set him up for future life. There are so many things about that story that the BBC won’t want propagated.

    LPJ? Is that the BBC version of BIJ of McAlpine fame?

    Maybe James Harding could fact check it?


  4. deegee says:

    Frankly I think both Obama AND Carson employed sloppy thinking. Only Carson was caught on it. No surprise there.


    • Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

      Obama was caught out many times but it was general ignored.


  5. PeterT says:

    I see where you are coming from, Deegee but I don’t see it as sloppy thinking. The definition of “immigrant” is one who comes to live permanently in a foreign country, without mention of whether they did so voluntarily. I think Obama and Ben Carson were seeking to say that immigrants are often a positive influence and wanted to include the descendants of slaves. The convicts transported from Britain, first to America and then to Australia can also be classed as immigrants even though they had no choice in the matter. I think around 20% of today’s Australians are descended from transported convicts. The nub of it all though is that so-called journalists go over whatever President Trump and his supporters say and write in order to find the most mundane and obtuse uttering to criticize. The latest media ‘fake news’ is “Trump bans Brits from the White House” which is easily found to be patently untrue. I think even anti-Trump citizens are getting sick and tired of this constant Trump-bashing.


  6. CompassionateLeave says:

    Just to add to the great example of Sowell, there’s also Larry Elder and (fiscally conservative Libertarian)Economist Walter E. Williams who is fantastic. Both highlight a large, productive, black middle class in America. Libertarianism generally just doesn’t seem to exist on the BBC though.


  7. Framer says:

    Carson was quite precise saying, “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships.”
    Why the BBC is in such a rage about it I can only guess.
    They are however following liberal outrage in America on the remarks.


    • chrisH says:

      Probably not what he said, but simply the fact that a black surgeon would DARE to back Trump, and dare to speak of things he`s not likely to know of.
      Unlike Rachel Dolezal or Bonnie Greer…who DO have permission to venture on the idiot Lefts identity minefield. Like the NHS here-only licensed and approved lefties with the correct opinions are able to get onto the BBC to puff up Saviles bean bags.
      Still-we`re surely aware of what they`re doing.


      • Grant says:


        The racist Left hate Uncle Toms. These damn niggers just will not do what they are told. They are meant to be the slaves of white Lefties and they refuse to obey. They need a good whipping. Strange Fruit indeed .


        • Broadcasting-on-Behalf-of-the-Caliphate says:

          I’m reminded of the youtube clip of the group of privileged white students complaining to a black policeman of being a traitor to the black cause for not allowing them into some building or other so that they could protest for black men’s rights or something.


          • Oaknash says:

            This is so typical – A privileged upbringing and a couple of years at college and they are so bloody self righteous! Must have been a a real cred bonus for these poor little rich kids to have a couple of dem bruvvers backing them up at the end.

            As for the poor bloody copper being harangued by this bunch of right on, well to do rich kids – It must sometimes really rankle that what in effect this hard working bloke is doing is protecting these little shits futures against themselves!


            • Grant says:


              And these little wankers could not fight their way out of a paper bag.


              • Oaknash says:

                And thats the thing Grant – The left seem to have been given a carte blanche to shout, scream, and riot and not ever be seriously punished. However as soon as one of these chinless wonders gets a smack back it is deemed to be assault.
                I remember “Blair Peach” (what a wonderful lefty, diversity embracing name!) Getting his skull fatally smashed in back in the seventies. Of course the left had a field day and I am sure he was not rioting himself!. The thing is if you cant stand the heat dont go into the kitchen ! I think now there is even a Blair Peach Primary school! – yeauch!!

                What particularly galled me were the riots in France caused by the “fake rape” of a migrant and suddenly the riot police rather than the protesters (who deliberately cause ferment) are the villains.


          • joeadamsmith says:

            The cop was on to a loser from the start. Using logic against these people doesn’t work. The argument used against him consistently used his colour. They did not see that, by bringing out a person’s colour showed that they themselves are racist and see that the colour of a person’s skin makes that person different. Me? I use a person’s character/actions as to how I see him/her.

    Being a copper must be one of the hardest jobs on the planet these days. It seems whatever they do they can’t win. They’re either in trouble for using too much force or not enough. It can’t be easy trying to enforce two sets of rules. Deal softly with the Libtards & Mussies but severely with the adult white males. BTW Why do we call them a police FORCE if they can’t use force on these rioting toerags?


    • Oaknash says:

      If you look to Sweden Lucy – I think these days the left government have turned them into a Police Farce!
