Ben Carson Insists Holocaust Comments 'Not Hyperbole at All'

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is sticking to his guns.

Appearing on CBS's Face the Nation Sunday, Carson defended his assertion that if more people had been armed leading up to and during World War II, Adolf Hitler may not have been able to carry out the mass murder of Jews in Europe on such a large scale.

"It's not hyperbole at all," Carson said, appearing Sunday on CBS's Face The Nation. "Whether it’s on our doorstep or whether it’s 50 years away, it's still a concern and it’s something that we must guard against. That’s one of the real purposes of having a constitution. I think the founders were really quite insightful into looking at possibilities and understanding what has happened in other places and trying to put together something that would prevent that from happening here."

Carson on Thursday told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that the Holocaust may not have been as deadly if more Jews had had guns.

"I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed," he said. "I'm telling you there is a reason these dictatorial people take the guns first."

He's right. The only defense against tyranny is an armed citizenry. Of course those citizens also need courage. Something sorely lacking today.

Yes, but he said nothing about Churchill, Stalin, and Hitler being Freemasons working for the Wall Street and London bankers.

The war was a total fraud from top to bottom.

The public was bamboozled into a fake war and lost a whole generation of children so Israel could be stolen from the Palestinians.

Yet, he demonizes and scapegoats the Muslims just like the Germans did to the Jews.
