Before he died, Andrew Breitbart once famously Tweeted that MSNBC’s Touré could find a way to call broccoli racist.
Touré could pull that off, by the way. His entire job is to go on TV and call things racist. In fact, if you just set up a tape recorder that repeated the words, “That’s racist” over and over, no one would even notice that Touré wasn’t on the air that day.
Usually, Touré gets a pass for his ridiculous comments, but when he took a shot at Dr. Benjamin Carson, he finally caught some return fire. Carson had this to say on Megyn Kelley’s America Live show.
Well, you know, if you don’t have anything useful to say then you attack people. And you know, if you feel that your house of cards has been discovered and is starting to come unraveled, you become very desperate. You know, intelligent people tend to talk about the facts. They don’t sit around and call each other names. That’s what you can find on a third grade playground. This is something that we need to move beyond in this country, and let’s have a real discussion about the real facts. If somebody disagrees, let’s talk about why they disagree, let’s talk about the pros and cons, let’s see if we can find some accommodation. But to sit around and act like third graders is nonproductive.
Professional race hustlers like Touré only get by with their bad behavior because they don’t get called on it. So, it’s great to see Ben Carson smacking Touré back. Maybe he’ll start a trend.
