Jimmy Carter, Obama, and Racism

Jimmy Carter continues to disgrace himself.

He was one of the worst presidents in this country's history. He is one of the worst ex-presidents in this country's history.

Again and again, he shames himself.

Carter is up to his spiteful attacks again, unfairly slamming his fellow Americans as racists.




Transcript
JIMMY 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, that he's African-American. 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 shared 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.

Clearly, history shows us that Carter wasn't qualified to lead this great country. His presidency was a mess. That's a belief held by many people.

That's not about skin. Good grief.

Obama screwing up the country isn't about the color of his skin. It's about his agenda. Period. End of story. Race isn't a factor.

I do not believe that Joe Wilson's "You lie!" outburst was about race. It was about Obama's deception and the way he was misrepresenting his health care plan to the American people.

This video clip plays like pure propaganda. NBC and MSNBC keep pushing and pushing the racism angle.

Brian Williams' remarks clearly promote that opposition to Obama is based on race, and there are serious racial tensions in the country.

BRIAN WILLIAMS: During the interview, we talked about what some see as a heightened climate of racial and other hate speech since the election of President Obama. A certain number of signs and images at last weekend's big Tea Party march on Washington and at other recent events have featured racial and other violent themes. And President Carter today said he is extremely worried by it.

(Carter's comments)

President Carter in Atlanta today. He went on to say that because of President Obama's personal qualities, he will be able to, quote, "triumph over the racist attitude that is the basis for the negative environment that we see so vividly demonstrated in public affairs in recent days," end of quote.

This is absolutely unconscionable.

This is clearly an orchestrated campaign to garner support for Obama by playing the race card. I hear the talking points coming from the White House, the Democrat leadership, their mouthpieces in the media, and the Dem minions.

The likes of Brian Williams, Maureen Dowd, and countless others have no qualms whatsoever about charging Americans with racism. That is vicious.

When President Bush was in office, did Williams do stories about the hate speech directed at him? Good Lord, did Williams complain about the anti-Bush "art," such as the work depicting a gun being held to President Bush's head or the movie made about his assassination, some Leftists' ultimate fantasy? Did he focus on the horrible signs and slogans and violence that marked the many marches protesting President Bush and his administration?

No, no, and no.

Where was Williams when all of those violent images and themes were being disseminated? Where was Carter?

So much ugliness directed at President Bush came from the Democrat leadership. Carter himself was at the forefront of that movement.

Carter disgusts me. He doesn't conduct himself as a former president should. No integrity. No honor.

Williams and the mob at NBC News and MSNBC disgust me. Maureen Dowd disgusts me.

Their racially divisive tactics are despicable.

I oppose Obama on government-run health care. I've called him a liar when he has told lies. Unfortunately, that has been often, but that does not make me a racist. I refuse to be intimidated by these horrible accusations being spouted by Carter and his comrades on the Left.

I'm truly angered by their total lack of decency and concern for the consequences of their inflammatory statements. What they are doing is wrong.

Something that has nothing at all to do with race -- opposition to instrusive policies and the growth of government by Obama and Congress -- is reported as being racial in nature.

What's really unforgivable is that the liberal media don't report on legitimate stories like the ACORN scandal, yet they report on a fabricated race war of their own creation.

It's the ugliest of lies.

Carter and Brian Williams and their like-minded cohorts are shameless.

The buck stops with Obama. The onus is on him to call them out now.

UPDATE: ABC jumps on the race bandwagon.



DAN HARRIS: They've waved signs likening President Obama to Hitler and the devil, raised questions about whether he was really born in this country, falsely accused him of planning to set up death panels, decried his speech to students as indoctrination and called him everything from a fascist to a socialist to a communist. And all that was before Mr. Obama's speech was interrupted by a Representative who once fought to keep the Confederate flag waving over the South Carolina state house. Add it all up, and some prominent Obama supporters are now saying that it paints a picture of an opposition driven, in part, by a refusal to accept a black President.

so i wonder how consistent you are. if obama is a liar, was bush a liar? did he lie about wmd's in iraq? aren't he and cheney war criminals for starting an unnecessary war? didn't they squander the national treasure, not to mention the blood of thousands of americans and hundreds of thousands of iraqis? what about their tax cuts that robbed millions of dollars from the middle- and working classes and gave it to those who already have more than they or their heirs can ever spend? when you acknowledge those truths, your point of view might have something like integrity.

Yeah that it Jimmy. It’s not his policy but the color of his skin that fiscal conservatives hate.
We also don’t like Nancy Pelosi because she’s a woman, Harry Reid because he’s a Mormon, you because you are a baptist and John Murtha and the late Ted Kennedy because they are Irish.
Yeah that's the ticket.
Check out my take and stick around for more good comment.
