Ben Carson connects Clinton to Lucifer in convention address

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

On the second day of the Republican National Convention, Ben Carson connected Hillary Clinton to the devil in rambling thoughts that departed from remarks distributed to reporters earlier.

In his remarks off the teleprompter, Carson connected Clinton to community organizer Saul Alinksy, who Clinton wrote about in college.

“Her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky,” said Carson. “This was someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently. Now interestingly enough, let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky: He wrote a book called ‘Rules for Radicals.’ On the dedication page, it acknowledges Lucifer, ‘the original radical who gained his own kingdom.’”

“This is a nation where our founding document the Declaration of Independence talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator,” Carson continued. “This is a nation where our pledge of allegiance says we are one nation under God. This is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says ‘In God We Trust.’ So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer? Think about that.”
