Ben Carson: Things Could Get A Whole Lot Worse

The violence between Trump supporters and protesters got so worrying in Chicago on Friday that Donald Trump cancelled his rally there.

Now, according to USA Today, Ben Carson, who recently endorsed Trump, said things could easily get a whole lot worse.

The former Republican presidential candidate said Monday that “If the protesters continue with their Alinsky-ite tactics, there is a real possibility of escalation because those who are the victims of them have two choices: they can submit to them and meekly just do whatever those protesters want them to do, or they can fight back. And if they decide to fight back, there could be an escalation.”

Carson made reference to Saul Alinsky, who wrote the inflammatory populist protest manual "Rules for Radicals."

The former neurosurgeon also went after the Trump protesters for getting in the way of Trump's and his supporters' First Amendment rights.

He said this is a prime time for the other presidential candidates to “stand up and to start talking to people about what First Amendment rights are, why they are so important as a part of the foundation of our country. The problem is that there are those who are being taught that if someone disagrees with you, you have the right to interfere with their First Amendment rights, their ability to express themselves, their freedom of speech. Now when people do things wrong such as that, it causes other people to react in a way that is negative, and therefore you see that reaction.”

According to the Washington Times, George Soros' MoveOn.org is helping fund the anti-Trump protests.
