Thank you. Dr. Carson chose to share his personal beliefs publicly. Because his beliefs were not "politically correct" as defined by "progressives / liberals" he must be vigorously attacked and punished. "Progressives" and "liberals" do not tolerate opposing points of view.

It is hard to imagine a more inspiring occasion. The graduation ceremony for Johns Hopkins University Medical School was set to welcome the man who has brought it so much attention lately-- Dr. Ben Carson, the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery whose observations on culture and politics have earned him millions of new fans in recent months.

But those views ruffled the sensibilities of ideological hooligans at Hopkins, who sought to chase him from that occasion.

Sadly, they have succeeded.

Displaying characteristic gallantry and class, Dr. Carson has withdrawn, rather than see the event reduced to a circus.
