My political meme is about Ben Carson’s idea that victims of mass shootings are cowards because they do not “fight back.” Presidential candidate Carson stated that he would not allow an active shooter to shoot him, a statement many found inane insensitive and unrealistic. Carson supported this belief with a story of a robber holding him at gunpoint at a Baltimore Popeyes. Carson noted that he told the criminal to rob the cashier instead for more money. The story was mocked by many and the Baltimore police found no records for these events.
