Dr. Ben Carson on Tuesday accused critics of his stance on gay marriage of trying to completely shut down debate on the issue and called his white liberal critics “the most racist out there.”

In an appearance on the Mark Levin radio show, Carson said he represents an existential threat to gay marriage proponents, which is why attacks on his stance against gay marriage have been so vicious.

“They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me. 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,” he said.

After Levin asked him about white liberals, Carson, who is black, said, “They’re the most racist people there are because they put you in a little category, a box. How could you dare come off the plantation?”

Urgent: Get the Truth About President Obama.

Carson, a neurosurgeon and director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, has become a darling of conservatives since speaking out at the National Prayer Breakfast in February, where he attacked President Barack Obama’s policies in front of the president. He has even hinted at a possible presidential run in 2016.

Carson said last week that marriage “is a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality — it doesn’t matter what they are, they don’t get to change the definition.”

NAMBLA is the North American Man/Boy Love Association.

Initially he defended his comments, saying they were misunderstood and taken out of context.

However, the remarks prompted students to petition for his removal as this year’s commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins. Carson said he would not speak if students continued to object.
