New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser thinks she’s cracked the code on the “vast left-wing conspiracy”–it can’t handle an “uppity” black conservative like Ben Carson as president.
Peyser offered this viewpoint in a Friday column titled, “Liberal media can’t fathom a black, conservative president.” In it she argued that the liberal media won’t accept the notion of a black man being conservative as reality.
“This means one thing. Reporters must put the uppity Dr. Carson, 64, in his place,” Peyser wrote. She added that liberal journalists view Carson as a “direct threat facing the nation today.”
“How dare an African-American, an educated, accomplished, evangelical Christian, think for himself?” Peyser continued. “To the vast left-wing conspiracy, the good doc exhibits extreme chutzpah — simultaneously bearing black skin and being a conservative.”
She then took aim at Politico’s “reckless” report a week ago that claimed Carson fabricated his personal story of being offered a full scholarship to attend West Point.
“Dr. Carson has never said, written or emitted smoke signals asserting that he applied to West Point, as Politico suggested,” she wrote. “At most, he mistook an offer for a free education as a “full scholarship.”
And Peyser also called out CNN’s “pathetic” reporting on holes in Carson’s story of being a violent juvenile. Or as she dubbed it, being a “badass teen.”
“Aside from his apparently rotten aim, it boggles the mind that reporters from the TV news network interviewed nine people who may (or may not) have known Dr. Carson five decades ago. None could remember him being violent. Some scoop.”
