The conservative rising star Dr. Ben Carson said on a Tuesday talk show that critics won’t shut him up and that among the most vicious of his attackers were white liberals.

He made the comments on Mark Levin’s radio show during a discussion of his opposition to same-sex marriage.

“They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me,” Dr. Carson said, as reported in Newsmax. “They can’t find anything else to delegitimize me so they take my words, misinterpret them and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot.”

Mr. Levin asked: And what about white liberals — how do they treat you?

“They’re the most racist people there are because they put you in a little category, a box,” Dr. Carson said. “How could you dare come off the plantation?”
