After Comments on Muslims, Donations Coming In So Fast for Ben Carson He Can Hardly Keep Up With It

After Dr. Ben Carson noted that he didn’t think a Muslim president was a good idea and that Islamic Sharia is incompatible with American democracy, many thought that his campaign would be over. But, to the contrary, far from losing support Carson now reports that he is getting so much money in campaign donations that he can hardly keep up with it all.

Last weekend on the Sunday shows, Carson said that he would not recommend that Americans elect a practicing Muslim to the White House. Later he said that Islamic Sharia law is not compatible with American ideals. The left went wild trying to attack Carson and destroy his campaign for president. But apparently the people loved what Carson said quite despite the condemnation by the media because his donations have soared.

Retired neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said Wednesday the fundraising dollars have been flowing in, as a super PAC supporting his candidacy reported a surge in donations since his remarks Sunday about whether he would support a Muslim for president.

“I mean, the money’s been coming in so fast, it’s hard to even keep up with,” Mr. Carson said on “Fox and Friends.” “I remember the day of the last debate, within 24 hours we had raised a million dollars, and it’s coming in at least at that rate, if not quite a bit faster.”

The show also played clips of people criticizing Mr. Carson for his remarks.

“My reaction to anyone is that I never said that a person could not run for office. I just said I wouldn’t support them,” he said. “Do I not have a right to support what I want to support?”

The fact is, Carson is 100% right. Islam is totally incompatible with the American way of life.
