Ex-president Jimmy Carter sees racists everywhere but he's changed his tune significantly when it comes to President Barack Obama.
If racism was an entrée on the dinner table, Democrats would be sitting in a chair rubbing their stuffed tummies and burping. News outlets like NBC and ex-presidents like Jimmy Carter simply cannot get enough racism. The same goes for a number of left leaners on social media networks. Carter, true to form, however is a contradiction.
Talking point of the leftwing extremist day: The September 12 march on Washington—with a crowd estimated somewhere between tens of thousands and more than a million so who knows?—was conducted by nothing but racists who just cannot stand seeing a black man in the Oval Office. Carter summed it up for the Noodle-Head network’s Brian Williams: “I live in the South. 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. That racism—that inclination still exists, and I think it’s bubbled up to the surface because of a 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 grieves me and concerns me very deeply.”
The American taxpayer should be concerned “very deeply” we’re still paying Carter a pension for a job not well done.
I’ve had emails from people involved with different groups who traveled to Washington and I’ve deliberately spent some time on Facebook and other websites to test the waters.
The general conclusion I have come to is that many people who support insurance reform colloquially titled “Obamacare” have not read any of the legislation being proposed. Nor do those people have any idea how federal entitlement programs like Medicaid, Medicare and CHIP work. Both major political parties have “brainwashees” in abundance, but some of the lefties defy description. Take a look at a few liberal blogs and you’ll see what I mean. I have never met so many uninformed people who claim to be smart.
Of course it’s easy to understand why Dems push the race card—it’s been the best propaganda tool the party ever had.
