Jimmy Carter Finally Says It

He’s done it. He’s finally confirmed what we conservatives have long been pointing out. He’s the first big dude in the Democrat party to actually admit that this is what they think, and others are sure to follow.

Former president Jimmy Carter said to a packed-house audience in Atlanta yesterday that all of the disagreement with President Obama is “based on racism.”

While some Obama supporters have warned of the return of white hoods and “lynching rides through the countryside” because of the racism against Obama, until yesterday none of the major Democrat players had supported such claims. Carter is the first and I promise he won’t be the last. What he’s really saying is what every Democrat has dreamed of being able to say for a long time: you’re not allowed to disagree with us now, because if you do we’ll call you a racist.

In other words, we’ll win one way or another. Even if the methods used are dirty and low-down.

Of course, we are also talking about the same man who meets regularly with Hamas. And he mistakes Israel’s right to defend herself with “apartheid.”

Jimmy Carter is a scumbag, and he can kiss my Texan @$$.

  1. I can’t believe how many people have become omniscient recently. We as a species must be evolving to a point where we can determine an individual’s true motivations with only a couple of words.

  2. “Former president Jimmy Carter said to a packed-house audience in Atlanta yesterday that all of the disagreement with President Obama is “based on racism.”

    I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and not Joe Wilson you by calling you a liar. This is actually what Carter said (and I absolutely 100% agree with his sentiments):

    “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.”

    Never did he say that ALL disagreements between all 60,000 white teabaggers that showed up in D.C. and Obama are due to racism, but, judging from a lot of their signs, there clearly are LOTS of racists in the GOP. Hordes, I would even say. Let’s be honest about it, first and foremost, before you start calling the only real Christian politician I can think of off the top of my head a scumbag. There’s nothing scummy about making a factual observation.

    P.S. I think it’s kind of fascinating that the right jumped all over this like clockwork. I was actually waiting for all the comments to start. That’s too funny…

  3. Newsflash to Jimmy Carter: You are dead wrong.

    How can such absurd statements be made, that anyone who disagrees with Obama is a racist. So everyone in the Rep party is going to be racist because they will disagree with Obama.

    I do not believe that people who disagree with Obama will be racist. This is a tactic to make people who oppose Obama appear to be horrible people. People who disagree with Obama have fundamental differences.

  4. Mel, RIGHT. ON. Check out this irony: I was told yesterday during a debate on this subject that I was lucky to be born white, that I can never know what it’s like to be black. Doesn’t this infer that being white is somehow better than being black? Isn’t that the very definition of racism?

  5. “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.”

    Jimmy Carter needs to stop sniffing the glue he uses to build houses for poor people.

  6. Why can’t we as a nation have an intelligent discussion about the issue of Race in America?

    Instead of this verbal tennis match of allegations back and forth, why can’t we sit down and talk about the issue?

    I don’t have an answer for that. I do know is we keep doing the same thing over and over and getting the same God awful result.

    The recent Henry Louis Gates Jr. case and the Tawany Brawley case along with the much bungled Duke Rape case mess tells me such a discussion is long overdue.

    The only reason I think this can’t happen is because there are too many people with big egos who want to be part of the discussion, will demand they be part of it, and they will raise a huge stink of a fight if they are not.

  7. Yes, Robert, he did say that, but he also said what I quoted him as in the original post. He made several statements to that effect.

    Even to say that the “overwhelming portion” of animosity is racism is taking it too far.

  8. “Even to say that the “overwhelming portion” of animosity is racism is taking it too far.”

    So is calling Obama a Black President. Obama is not black. He’s bi-racial. He’s half white and half black. Obama may choose to identify as a black man but that doesn’t make him one.

  9. “So is calling Obama a Black President. Obama is not black. He’s bi-racial. He’s half white and half black. Obama may choose to identify as a black man but that doesn’t make him one.”

    That has to be one of the more ridiculous and spurious things ever said about the man. So, if you’re a caucasian man of European descent, we’re not allowed to identify you as white? We need to call you half Welsh and half Portuguese, if that were the case?

  10. “Doesn’t this infer that being white is somehow better than being black? Isn’t that the very definition of racism?”

    In going back over older comments made, I re-read this one and had to add that this is a very, very true statement. I have been told on two occasions by people in different states–one back home in Texas, one here in Arizona–that I was lucky to be born white. I thought at first that I shouldn’t be offended by that, but now I realize I wasn’t crazy in the least for actually being offended.
