According to people organizing the protest of Dr. Ben Carson’s scheduled commencement speech for the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, a petition they’ve circulated to cancel him as speaker has been signed by more than half the graduating class.

Once touted as a rising GOP star, Carson became the center of controversy recently after he made comments on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show which seemed to compare gay people to those who participate in bestiality and pedophilia.

Appearing on Mark Levin’s radio show this Monday, Carson downplayed the rebuke from the graduating students, saying that his commencement speech is “still up in the air” and dismissed the new developments as merely “eight students who signed a petition.”

Listen to Carson’s comments in his April 1 appearance on Mark Levin’s show.

    Don’t you just LOVE that freak Mark Levin talking about the sanctity of free speech and in the same sentence denouncing others for THEIR right to free speech?

    Freedom of religion…as long as you aren’t Muslim. Freedom from the government…unless you want an abortion. Freedom to live your life as you choose, long as you aren’t gay.

    F them all.

    a few months ago i would have called ben carson a great man, he has helped so many children, some directly from deaths bed to a full recovery, im glad though, that he showed america how out of touch he is with reality, he may have had a future in politics but now i dont think even republicans would support him, between his tea party backers and his bigoted views i think he needs to look for another career, or focus his attention back to those hurting children, he is a great doctor, thats all
