Showcasing his lack of legal knowledge, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson argues that he would outlaw what he believes is “liberal” speech on college campuses.
Appearing on Gleen Beck’s radio program, Carson explained that he would do this by direction of the Department of Education.
“I actually have something I would use the Department of Education to do,” said Carson. “It would be to monitor our institutions of higher education for extreme political bias and deny federal funding if it exists.”
Carson later clarified that he felt the left would be the most affected by his policy.
“There are some who would say that it’s kind of like monitoring political speech. Do you agree with their assessment of that?” asked host Dana Loesh.
“No, I don’t, I think it’s a very big difference. But, of course, that would be the first thing that the left would claim because they want to be able to continue to do this, and it’s not appropriate for public funding to be used to indoctrinate students in one direction,” said Carson.
