The keynote speaker at Tuesday night’s GOP Lincoln Day dinner in Springfield says he’s concerned about the political climate in America… and sees parallels to Nazi Germany.
Dr. Ben Carson is a noted neurosurgeon who became a conservative celebrity a year ago with pointed comments at the National Prayer Breakfast, with President Obama seated nearby. Since then, Carson has become a Fox News commentator and a hot ticket on the lecture circuit.
He says today’s political parties don’t debate issues… they demonize their opponents, and he compares the strategy to Hitler’s divide-and-conquer approach against political enemies.
Carson speaks at the event that starts Tuesday at 6 at the Prairie Capital Convention Center. Tickets are available through the website bencarsonlincolnday.com.
