Liberals hate when you tell them the truth and will go out of their way to smear your name if you do.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said earlier in the week that “poverty is a state of mind.”
Not surprisingly, liberals tore him apart and are calling for him to resign.
Ben Carson says that poverty is a "state of mind." You know what else is a state of mind? Always being a blithering idiot.

“You take somebody that has the right mindset, you take everything from them and put them on the street, and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there,” Carson said in an interview that aired Wednesday on SirusXM radio, according to Fox News.
“And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom,” he added.
Conservative Tribune reports:
While conservatives applauded in fierce agreement to what Carson said, liberals threw a collective hissy fit, with leftists at The Guardian, The Huffington Post and, of course, social media all rushing to excoriate the retired neurosurgeon for sharing the lessons he learned growing up in poverty.
akei — the gay activist who became famous playing Mr. Sulu on the original “Star Trek” series — issued no criticisms of Freeman when he made his statements about poverty a couple years back, but when has consistency ever been a strong suit of disturbed liberal hacks?
While it ought to take nothing more than basic common sense to realize that Carson spoke truthfully, apparently liberals need a little bit more than that.
Tea Party activist Conservative Campaign Committee chairman and longtime Tea Party activist Lloyd Marcus suggested that poverty does exist, but blamed Democrats for milking it for votes.
“Despite free housing, food and health-care, the vibe of the projects was angry and violent,” he wrote. “Thank God in 1952, my dad broke the color barrier to become a Baltimore City firefighter. Our family moved out of the projects into a black suburban community in Pumphrey, MD.”
Sadly, whereas Marcus went on to find success in life, the majority of his “cousins died extremely young; never experiencing the joy of personal achievement or pursuing a dream,” and due largely to the “government provid(ing) just enough to get by and keep them voting for Democrats.”
“Dr. Carson compassionately gave his fellow blacks a crucial key to personal success and overcoming poverty,” Marcus concluded. “Please, please, please, Dr. Carson, continue telling the truth.”
