The fallout from the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, continues. For the past two days, the liberal media has attacked President Trump for a rally that he had no part of and for racism that he condemned.
But one member of Trump’s cabinet has been silent – HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, who is an African-American. Now, we know why.
In the aftermath of Charlottesville, Dr. Ben Carson and his wife Candy had their home vandalized, and hateful anti-Trump messages were left. Dr. Carson shared the tragic news on Facebook:
Regarding all of the racial and political strife emanating from the events in Charlottesville last weekend, let me…
Carson tells a story about a neighbor who put up a Confederate flag years ago after they bought a home in rural Maryland. In support of the Carsons, other neighbors immediately put up American flags.
Then, Carson noted, “More recently our home in Virginia along with that of a neighbor was vandalized by people who also wrote hateful rhetoric about President Trump. We were out of town, but other kind, embarrassed neighbors cleaned up most of the mess before we returned.”
This is outrageous and unacceptable. Hateful anti-Trump rhetoric has had a real effect, and the Carson family has had their home vandalized. Thank God no one was home, but that was a close call. The vandals should be brought to justice and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
This is a breaking news story. We will have more details as they become available.
