Uh:

Fox News contributor and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson on Monday compared American society to Nazi Germany. "I mean, [our society is] very much like Nazi Germany," Carson told Breitbart News, after declaring that we were living in a "Gestapo age." "And I know you’re not supposed to say ‘Nazi Germany,’ but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe."

As the grandson of a Holocaust survivor who lived through Kristallnacht and as an American who just watched someone criticize his country without being thrown in jail, I have to disagree. Dr. Carson, who finished third in last weekend’s CPAC presidential straw poll, doesn’t have the foggiest clue what he’s talking about. And to prove it, I’m not even going to go tattle on him to my nearby Obamacare Enforcement Officer.

And yes, in case any conservative Carson fans should stumble across this post, that last line is a joke. There is no such thing as an Obamacare Enforcement Officer. Then again, if there were, would you really expect me to admit it?
