Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Friday tied the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to a century-old plot by socialists.
“If you really understand the big picture of what’s going on, then what’s going on with Kavanaugh will make perfectly good sense to you,” Carson said at the Values Voter Summit in Washington.
“There have been people in this country for a very long time, going all the way back to the Fabians, people who’ve wanted to fundamentally change this country.”
The Hill reports:
Carson’s use of “Fabians” appeared to be a reference to The Fabian Society, a British socialist organization with the goal of advancing democratic socialist policies that was formed in the 19th century.
“They don’t like what America is and what it represents, and they want to change us to another system,” Carson said. “In order to do that, there are three things they must control: the education system, the media and the courts.”
