White liberals are “the most racist people there are,” Dr. Ben Carson told conservative radio host Mark Levin on Monday. That comment infuriated “The Five” co-host Bob Beckel, who slammed Carson for not only making the comment, but also for thinking liberals care about what he thinks.

After making it clear he disagrees with Carson on the issue, Beckel mentioned his “liberal” father who was apparently arrested 57 times during the Civil Rights movement.

“For Dr. Carson to make that kind of statement shows he doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Beckel said. “And it is attack on the very heart of what many liberals believe in, and he is the last person I am gong to take that from.”

Beckel also argued labeling white liberals “racist” is like labeling Fox News host Eric Bolling a “communist.” He also disagreed with Carson’s assertion that the left is trying to shut him up by attacking him.

“You are not that important,” Beckel said to Carson. “I can guarantee that most liberals I know don’t lose a second of sleep over what Ben Carson says or thinks.”

“I really don’t think Dr. Ben Carson deserves this much airtime,” he later added.
