Dr. Ben Carson speaks out for First Amendment rights
Decries “Alinsky-like tactics” of disrupters
March 14—On the Today program, Carson agreed with the host that he is “philosophically and spiritually aligned” with Trump.
Carson stated that he had spent significant time talking with Donald Trump. In talking with him in private, “I found out that he does care about America deeply and is open to spiritual things,” he said.
Concerning the “tone” of the rallies, he was asked about where the rallies might be headed. But to Carson it is a battle for the First Amdendment.
He said of the Trump rally supporters: “Those who are the victims have two choices: They can submit to them and meekly do whatever those protesters want them to do; or they can fight back.
“And if they decide to fight back, there could be an escalation.”
