Dark horse GOP presidential hopeful, Dr. Ben Carson, described America today as tantamount to Nazi Germany. "A society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe," told The New York Meeting Monday, Breitbart reports.

Dr. Carson, who was one of many conservatives targeted by the IRS over the last few years for an exhaustive audit, said, “the government using its tools to intimidate the population," and it is expanding by the year.

The Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon and conservative columnist excited a standing room only crowd at the New York City meeting of elected officials, journalists, business leaders and conservative authors, according to Breitbart that reported on the 62-year-pld’s triumphant speech..

The conservative Republican has no time for “political correctness” and was very candid about what he perceives as “living in a Gestapo age.” According to CNN, Dr. Carson’s skyrocketing status in the GOP occurred after publicly criticizing President Obama’s policies in front of the president at last year’s National Prayer Breakfast.

Dr. Carson is certain that speech led to his IRS audit just months later.

He went on to say “politicians and the media are the politically correct police.” Furthermore, fear of retribution for speaking honestly is harming the country.

Dr. Carson fervently believes "The reason that is so horrible is because the only way you have harmony and reach consensus is by talking. But if, in fact, people are afraid to talk, you never reach consensus. And instead you grow further and further apart. And that’s exactly what’s happening; creating a horrible schism that will destroy our nation."

His mercurial rise has many in the GOP seriously looking at him for the vice presidential nomination in 2016.
