In a discussion Harris says:
“Given a choice between Noam Chomsky and Ben Carson, in terms of the totality of their understanding of what’s happening now in the world, I’d vote for Ben Carson every time,” Harris stated. “Ben Carson is a dangerously deluded religious imbecile, Ben Carson does not…the fact that he is a candidate for president is a scandal…but at the very least he can be counted on to sort of get this one right. He understands that jihadists are the enemy.”
So Harris has become so gripped by his fear of Muslims that he has become a caricature of the one-issue candidate and would vote for a “dangerously deluded religious imbecile” over a man who is one of the worlds leading intellectuals and a humane, eminently rational, and science-based thinker.
What is incredible is that I think that even other one-issue voters, like those for whom opposition to abortion is a non-negotiable requirement, would draw the line at voting for someone that they themselves considered to be a “dangerously deluded religious imbecile’.
But not Harris. He has no such qualms. If you are not a raging Islamophobe, he has no use for you, whatever your other merits. All I can do is quote the immortal words of Joseph Welch to senator Joe McCarthy, “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”
