Ben Carson took a strong stand against the “PC police” in his remarks today at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
“I will continue to defy the PC police who have tried … to shut me up,” Carson, a former neurosurgeon, told the audience. “I still believe marriage is between a man and a woman.”
“Of course, gay people should have the same rights as everyone else. But they don’t get extra rights,” Carson added, saying he didn’t support same-sex marriage.
Talking about elections, Carson urged conservatives, after the primary was over, to support the more right-leaning candidate in the general election even if they viewed that candidate to be a “RINO,” or a Republican in name only.
