Ben Carson has been getting crushed all week after making a statement calling slaves immigrants. Well, Obama also called slaves immigrants.
“That’s what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity,” Ben Carson said during a speech at HUD’s offices.
“There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land,” Carson continued.
The mainstream media blasted Ben Carson for saying this.
Look at what Samuel L. Jackson had to say.

There were too many other angry reactions to count. The point is, the left was extremely angry with what Ben Carson said comparing slaves to immigrants.
Obama made a very similar statement not once but twice. Check out the story from Daily Caller:
As Breitbart News reporter Charlie Spiering noted on Twitter, Obama made a similar comparison during a Dec. 2015 speech at a naturalization ceremony.
“Certainly, it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves,” Obama said.
“There was discrimination and hardship and poverty. But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them. And they were able to muster faith that, here in America, they might build a better life and give their children something more.”
Obama made similar remarks at a naturalization ceremony on July 4, 2012. Jeryl Bier, a freelance writer whose work has been featured in The Weekly Standard, found the remarks in Obama’s speech archives.
“We say it so often, we sometimes forget what it means — we are a nation of immigrants. Unless you are one of the first Americans, a Native American, we are all descended from folks who came from someplace else — whether they arrived on the Mayflower or on a slave ship, whether they came through Ellis Island or crossed the Rio Grande,” Obama said at the ceremony.
Here is a video comparing what Ben Carson said to what Barack Obama said.
Obama Also Called Slaves Immigrants
One again, the hypocrisy of the left is on full display. What is the difference between what Ben Carson and Obama said? Well, one is a Republican and one is a Democrat.
