Dr. Ben Carson, former secretary of housing and urban development, decried on Newsmax the COVID-19 restrictions placed on children, calling them tantamount to "child abuse."
Appearing Monday on "Spicer & Co.," Carson, referring to the COVID-19 restrictions, said: "This is child abuse is being heaped upon our children, and they're going to pay the consequences.
"Think about the poor kids," added Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon. "First of all, they got to wear masks, so they don't get to see facial expressions, which is so important, particularly during the early developmental stages, to be able to correlate what people are saying to their facial expressions."
"And then," Carson said, kids are told: "You're carrying some horrible disease. You may feel OK, but you might kill your grandmother. And when your grandmother dies now, you're feeling guilty about it. And if you're white, you're told 'you're an oppressor, and you're causing everybody else's problems.'
''If you're Black or a minority, 'you can't possibly succeed in this society.' All of this is happening while you're trying to develop your self-image. And now you're being told you might not be a girl or a boy," he said.
