In recent days, Dr. Ben Carson has said that a Muslim should never be allowed to be President of the United States. He then said that a Muslim could be President, as long as the Koran was completely re-written. After that, he told reporters that he would absolutely use religious affiliation as grounds for probable cause.

In a more perfect world, these comments would have caused his campaign to crash and burn beyond the point of recovery. However, in this hate-filled country that we live in, these anti-Muslim comments are actually sending his poll numbers higher and higher, and he’s once again pulling even with Donald Trump after falling in the polls following the second Republican debate.
