The anti-Trump hatred among the elites continues to grow and grow across America. This time it is Ben Carson’s home city of Detroit where he was once applauded as an example of a poor child raised by a single mother who went on to become one of the most celebrated neurosurgeons in the world. A book deal followed, then a Hollywood film, and a high school named in Mr. Carson’s honor. Today, Detroit ‘leaders’ are moving to strip that high school of Ben Carson’s name for nothing more than Carson’s ongoing support of the Trump administration.
Some people want Ben Carson's name off a Detroit school. Lots of people want Aretha Franklin's name on a Detroit school. Both could happen as the district launches renaming effort. https://t.co/edI9TmVg8t via @freep

The name of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson could be removed from a high school in his hometown of Detroit now that a state-appointed emergency manager no longer oversees the city’s Board of Education, according to reports.
The board voted 6-1 Tuesday to begin soliciting public opinion on whether the name of the Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine – as well as some other schools in the district – should be changed.
The Carson school was named for the former neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate before he became a member of President Trump’s Cabinet, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Board member LaMar Lemmons told the Detroit News that those now backing a name change “don’t support the (Trump) administration.”
It’s liberal moral dyslexia at its worst. During the Obama years, black unemployment in America skyrocketed. Black families lost jobs, lost their homes, and lost hope. Less than two years into the Trump presidency and Black unemployment is at record lows, new Black-owned business startups are at record highs. Jobs, homes, and hope are returning to Black communities all across America and yet these city ‘leaders’ claim to not support the Trump administration and wish to punish a kind and brilliant man like Dr. Ben Carson, one of their own who succeeded despite overwhelming societal obstacles. What they are doing is akin to strapping him to a tree and lashing his back for daring to leave the Democrat plantation.
