"In a very telling moment, Hillary Clinton maligned me and millions of other Americans as racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islamophobic 'deplorables'.
I'm so tired of this line of attack that normally taunts conservatives. Well let me be very specific in my response.
I believe in expanding opportunity, not welfare; that's not racist.
I believe every life is worth protecting, particularly the unborn; that doesn't make me sexist.
I believe marriage is between one man and one woman; that's not homophobic.
I believe in borders, the rule of law and our sovereign right to decide who to let into our country; that's not xenophobic.
I believe radical Islam is a mortal threat to America and Western civilization; that is common sense, not Islamophobia.
We must use moments, like this, as opportunities because this is not just name-calling. The Left is using every tool at their disposal to whitewash our history and undercut our institutions.
The difference is that I believe in our nation as it was founded. I believe in "We the People," but it requires us to constantly reach out, inform, and mobilize conservatives.
There are a lot of challenges before us and a lot of problems to solve." -- Dr. Ben Carson
