Yesterday Fox News featured joint interviews with the stale civil rights activist Jessie Jackson, and fresh presidential possibility Dr. Ben Carson. I was expecting to witness the Dr. slap down the agitator, instead Jackson performed and Carson transformed!
I marveled at Carson’s finesse in response to Jackson’s inflammatory commentary on America. Carson gently disarmed Jackson, leaving him speechless! He then went further, “disarming” himself, as he shared his own history as a teenager who attempted to stab another boy. The interviews ended with Jackson’s racist cause all but lost, and Carson’s hope rising for all Americans!
Jesse Jackson is famous for inciting anger, covetousness, and racial division in this nation. His cause is always “trouble”…the more the better, for him!
Dr. Carson is famous for performing risky brain surgeries. He has faced surgical challenges for the past thirty years, on behalf of his patients. Now he is facing the challenges of political attack, for all of our sakes!
