Retired pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson said Thursday that Americans are “being played by those people who want to divide, conquer and control.”

“The trend you can see in our society is if you are pro-life, then you’re anti-woman,” Carson said at a town hall meeting entitled “Religion in America,” sponsored by local news station CBS12 in West Palm Beach, Fla. “If you’re pro-traditional marriage, then you’re homophobic. If you’re a white person — and you say something against a progressive black person, you’re a racist.

“We have gotten to this point to where we just like to label people and create division,” Carson added. “Where the American people have to come in here is recognizing that we’re being manipulated.”

He said that Americans are under attack by neo-Nazi groups and others who work to keep citizens from practicing their religion freely throughout the nation.

“We, the American people, have to realize that we are not each other’s enemies. The enemy are those people who are trying to divide us up.”
