• Carson Requests Secret Service: ‘I’m In Great Danger’ Because Liberals ‘See Me As An Existential Threat’

    GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson claimed on Thursday that he is in “great danger” because of the threats he has faced during his campaign by “the secular progressive movement” that fears him.

    “I prefer not to talk about security issues, but I have recognized and people have been telling me for many, many months that I’m in great danger because I challenge the secular progressive movement to the very core,” Carson said in an interview on New York City WABC radio’s Rita Cosby Show.

    “They see me as an existential threat and they know that,” he said. “But I also believe in the good Lord, and you know, we take reasonable precautions.”

    Carson said the threats are so serious that the Secret Service is considering protecting him.

    “They wouldn’t even be considering this if the threats were not serious.”

    The Department of Homeland Security received official requests for Secret Service protection from Carson and current GOP front-runner Donald Trump earlier this week, according to ABC News.

    House Speaker John Boehner, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Harry Reid will have to approve the candidates’ requests for protection before they are authorized.
