Ben Carson, who thinks gay equality is a ‘Marxist plot’, to get key role in Trump administration

Dr Ben Carson, who claim homosexuality is a choice and same-sex marriage is a “plot” conceived by the New World Order, is set to get a key role in President-elect Trump’s administration.

Former neurosurgeon and Fox News pundit Ben Carson launched his own bid for the Presidency, but dropped out early in the Republican Primaries.

Dr Carson is known for his endless font of surreal views about homosexuality – apologising after he was caught comparing gay people to paedophiles, and walking back comments after insisting that prisons ‘prove’ being gay is a choice.

The Republican previously insisted that same-sex marriage is a Marxist plot from the New World Order, claiming in a speech to a listed anti-gay group that gay weddings are part of a plan “to destroy unity [and] bring America down.”

Dr Carson is expected to be handed a key role by President-elect Donald Trump, who takes office in January.

President-elect Trump singled out Carson for mention in his victory speech, and Politico reports that Carson will likelu be responsible for designing a healthcare plan.

Asked if he plans to be involved in the Trump administration’s efforts, Carson said: “Yes, of course.”

The site adds: “He declined to say whether he was in line for a Cabinet role such as secretary of health and human services, or a broader advisory role.”

Carson previously claimed that gay people were responsible for the fall of the Roman Empire, warned that “there will be mass killings once again” over same-sex marriage, and insisted that gay weddings are like car seats for conjoined twins.

Speaking at an event for the anti-LGBT National Organisation for Marriage, he claimed “[America’s] strength lies in our unity. And there are so many forces that are there to try to destroy that unity —the only way to bring America down.

“If you look in a lot of writings of the Neo-Marxists when they talk about the New World Order, they say there’s only one stick in the mud: how do you get them out of the way and how do you change them?

“They said there were two things: their Judeo-Christian faith, and their strong families. Those were the things that had to be attacked, and those things have been systematically attacked.

“There’s a book called the Naked Communist… it lays out the whole agenda of how to attack the family and the Judeo-Christian values, to weaken the structure of America.

“This stuff is not secret, you can read about it. You can see all the things that are happening in America today.”

He continued later: “When we talk about liberty and justice for all, doesn’t that mean that people can be left alone, that no-one else gets to change definitions on them and change life for them?”

“They have no right to say to me that I must change the way I think in order to accommodate what they believe.

“That’s where the injustice comes from, and we have to understand that.”
