During his speech at the Republican convention on Tuesday, Dr. Ben Carson tried to tie Hillary Clinton to Lucifer with a bizarre side note about Saul Alinsky, a progressive activist who Clinton wrote about in her college thesis.
Carson brought up Alinsky while warning against “secular progressives,” diverting from his speech script.
“Let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky,” Carson told the crowd. “He wrote a book called ‘Rules for Radicals.’ On the dedication page, it acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom.”
“So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model someone who acknowledges Lucifer?” he asked.
The former Republican presidential candidate then claimed that progressives will try to “take God out of our lives.”
“The secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principles of the founding of this nation,” he said. “And if we continue to allow them to take God out of our lives, God will remove himself from us. We will not be blessed, and our nation will go down the tubes. And we will be responsible for that. We don’t want that to happen.”
