Retired neurosurgeon and Donald Trump surrogate, Ben Carson, slammed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Tuesday night for idolizing infamous liberal radical Saul Alinsky who "acknowledges Lucifer."
Speaking to a clamoring audience at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, Carson also warned that if America succumbs to the influence of the "secular progressive agenda," America will lose out on blessings from God and "go down the tubes."
"Her senior thesis was about Saul Alinksy, this was someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently. Now interestingly enough, let me tell you about Saul Alinksy. He wrote a book called 'Rules for Radicals,'" said Carson.
"On the dedication page it acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom. Now think about that, this is a nation where our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator. This is a nation where our Pledge of Allegiance says we are 'One Nation Under God," he continued as the Republican delegates cheered wildly.
"This is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says 'In God We Trust.' So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer? Think about that," said Carson as the crowd screamed "No!"
"The secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principles of the founding of this nation and if we continue to allow them to take God out of our lives, God will remove Himself from us. We will not be blessed and our nation will go down the tubes and we will be responsible for that. We don't want that to happen," warned Carson.
Earlier that evening, the party officially named Trump the Republican Party's nominee for president and Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate.
Carson said Trump understands that America's blessings come with responsibility.
"Donald Trump, he understands this very well. He understands that the blessings of this nation come with a responsibility to ensure that they are available to all not just a privileged few. This is exemplified by his willingness to take on the establishment against all odds. It is evident in his passion for the American worker. It is found in his desire to put his considerable skills to work on behalf of American interest, not his self-interest," said Carson.
The retired neurosurgeon who was also a Republican presidential candidate also warned against the #NeverTrump Republicans.
"We must resist the temptation to take the easy way out and to passively accept what is fed to us by the political elite and the media because they don't know what they are talking about and they have an agenda," said Carson.
"We must also be wary of the narrative that's being advanced by some in our own party, the notion that a Hillary Clinton administration wouldn't be that bad, the effects would only be temporary. You know, that it would last for four at most eight years. They are not using their God-given brain to think about what they're saying because it won't be four or eight years because she will be appointing people who will have an effect on us for generations and America may never recover from that. That's what we have to be thinking about," Carson said.
"We have to start thinking about what would Hillary Clinton do if she was in fact the president? She would appoint Supreme Court Justices, she would appoint federal judges and that would have a deleterious effect on what happens for generations to come. Not only that but she would continue with a system that denigrates the education of our young people," Carson warned. "This is not what America is all about this kind of deception and this is what we the people have the necessary obligation to fight."
"I am proud to support Donald Trump, an extraordinary businessman and the right leader for such a time as this," he added.
