Rabid Dogs

Republican Presidential contender Ben Carson, who thinks the Pyramids are grain silos, who doesn't quite know where states are, who is said to be "struggling to grasp foreign policy" and who, despite having been a medical professional, doesn't understand a whole lot about science or the history of science, made some news today by comparing humans displaced by a terrorist pseudo-state to "rabid dogs."
Discussing the Syrian refugee crisis, Carson said the United States must balance security needs against humanitarian impulses.

“For instance, if there’s a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you’re probably not going to assume something good about that dog, and you’re probably going to put your children out of the way,” Carson said. “It doesn’t mean that you hate all dogs by any stretch of the imagination, but you’re putting your intellect into motion.”
Okay well at least he said he doesn't hate all of the "dogs." So that's something.
