Jimmy Carter Plays the Race Card

Surprise, surprise, surprise, where else but on NBC Nightly News would the following take place an interview with former President Jimmy “Peanuts” Carter and the subject of opposition to Barack Obama’s policies would come up.

Jimmy Carter, perhaps the most incompetent President since Warren Harding prior to Barack Obama’s arrival, has gone off the deep end in left-wing politics in recent years redefining an image he earned as a lousy President but a noble former President for his work helping launch Habitat for Humanity and supporting other helpful causes. In the late years of the Clinton Presidency and surfacing in full bloom once George W. Bush was elected, Carter decided to become quite outspoken, his views far to the left of even prevailing liberal views in the Democratic party coming darned close to supporting 9/11 conspiracy theories but showing total contempt for Israel making comments that would come darned close to full-blown anti-Semitism.

One could certainly infer that if Carter is not a full-blown anti-Semite, certainly his sympathies lean in that direction, as such, isn’t it ironic that the Georgia peanut farmer would accuse foes of Obama policies as racist?

Surely right minded thinkers know exactly what to make of the following comments from Carter:
"I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man," Carter added, “I live in the South, and I've seen the South come a long way, and I've seen the rest of the country that share the South's attitude toward minority groups at that time, particularly African Americans."
"And that racism inclination still exists. And I think it's bubbled up to the surface because of the belief among many white people, not just in the South but around the country, that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It's an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply."
Let’s be clear, were Jimmy Carter to propose something as radical as Obama’s attempt to have the government seize control of the health care industry, the reaction would likewise be severe. If Jimmy Carter surrounded himself with known radicals who profess their support for communism, he would have paid a severe political price.
As we’ve discussed earlier, this is a typical tactic of the left to demonize their critics with false accusations to dehumanize and delegitimize them thus making their arguments not worthy of consideration. Since they do not have facts, history and constitutional law on their side, they are left with dirtying their opponents’ reputation through false assertions as their cowardly defense.
Surely, no one in American politics exhibited more cowardice under pressure than James Earl Carter. What’s left for Jimmy Carter after his failure as President than to be forever known as a sniveling whiner and radical left sympathizer?
