On a regular basis.
Only for the fact.
That they are conservative.

And I'm a little tired of the abuse.

I might mean Carson he is an authentic American he -- for the city's done.
To save the lives of these precious children of all races and all colors and all -- From all points of the -- he's a great American haven't said yet.
Ben Carson is no different there.

When everything is convenient for him to do the brilliant work that he does in the PA in the political arena he's got to get -- take the heat if you gotta say -- -- -- We -- -- we -- parallel careers we we kind of will start on the same path together and time and then -- friends we've known each other for twenty years and we usually disagreed which he hasn't changed.
But wait a minute.
But the names that you know their call starting would.
With Condoleezza Rice Clarence Thomas off Colin Powell any African American conservative they take abused that it is vicious it is cruel it is mean.
It's accepted by the very people on the left.
That's say that they are all -- for minority rights on whether they also bring -- -- let me bring if you're here because I think this is important.
Antonio wanna get your thoughts -- -- because it's also happening to Latinos that are conservative.
Well I don't think that Latino conservatives at this stage -- the gamer being.
Spoken about the derisively Marco Rubio in the -- is being applauded for his leadership on immigration reform.
There are some disagreements with other senators like Ted Cruz but it's it's within the realm of -- policy and politics game.
I was seen their gloves come off in our disrespectful.
Activities towards anybody and and frankly we welcome.
On the Latino side of the game.
Politicians and leadership from both parties on our issues and that's something that's.
That's good in -- news so you -- -- hopefully he'll continue.
-- look the other I'm saying in his.
I think it's really important that.
That this rhetoric and and the use of the you know because I think there's an effort here -- I think what it's about is intimidating people.
And try to silence people for dairy.
To have their own thoughts their own views they were all about national -- and and you -- -- a lot of it is based on religious views a lot of it is based on the family in the background.
