Jimmy Carter: Wilson comments 'based on racism'
Source: Associated Press

ATLANTA — Former President Jimmy Carter says Congressman Joe Wilson's outburst to President Barack Obama last week was an act "based on racism." Carter says Wilson's comment was part of an "inherent feeling" of some in this country who feel that a black man should not be president.

Carter called Wilson's comment "dastardly" and said the president should be treated with respect.

The South Carolina Republican lawmaker was formally rebuked Tuesday in a House vote divided by party lines. Wilson shouted "You lie!" during Obama's speech to Congress last Wednesday.

Carter was responding to a question submitted Tuesday night at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta.

Ahem........

I'M SO FUCKING SICK OF THESE BULLSHIT RACIST ACCUSATIONS!!!!!!!!!

I disagree with the liberal policies, not the person.

I support conservatives such as Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes, Michael Steele, & J.C. Watts, not because of their color, but because of their beliefs.

Fuck off DUmmies, liberal sycophants and Jimmy Carter.

These morons know this. They use the race card to try to shut down the opposition. No one wants to be called a racist, so when you disagree with the man's policies the scream "racist" to try to shut you up...But I don't give a shit if they scream it or not. I know I'm not a racist and God knows I'm not a racist. That's all that matters.

The rest of these shit bags can gargle my balls.

You know what is funny? Most of the people crying, "Racism!" are liberal whites! Notice how mum Jesse "Hymie Town" Jackson and Alwana Sharpton are. Even they know that crying, "Racism" at every turn is cheapening it. Pretty soon it's use will be cause for derision and ridicule.

Jimmy Carter: Wilson comments 'based on racism'

St.Louis Former President Jimmy Carter admitted to being a dried up, bitter, old fart who just likes to see his name in print and be quoted in the Liberal Press so he can pretend someone gives a fuck about what he says. Congressman Joe Wilson's outburst to President Barack Obama last week was an act of "Speaking Truth To Power!" Carter says Wilson's comment was part of an "inherent feeling" of some in this country who feel the president doesn't have a clue.





Fixerated. :cool::D

Good thing I can't be accused of racism for commenting, after visiting Carter's Presidential Library, that he lied in many instances. Perhaps he only has a different version of the truth. :rolleyes: It's been some time that I was there, but remember feeling nauseous going through that library. Carter would have a good future writing text books for the kiddies, altering history to his version of the truth.

Carter is a nasty old man.

I think the race card has been played too often by people who have no legitimate claim to a placer at the table. A talker out here now equates "racist" with the way "heretic" was used 500 years ago.

I'm certainly past it.

Don't be ridiculous. Don't you realize that they don't count as "black" because they're conservatives? You're still a racist. (And, apparently, so am I.) :rolleyes:

I use 'collectivism', as it accurately portrays the parallel between socialist policies and racist attitudes - they both treat people as groups instead of independently-thinking individuals.

That refers to groups but not ethnic origin. To broad.

It pisses me off as much as you but getting down on their level is not a battle we can win. They have the media on their side, and it's the independents we have to win over to turn this obamanation around. Independents will eventuallly tire of racism charges thrown around by these left wing punk ass politicians and news media types and it will backfire on them.

"And I think it already has sent a wave of approbation and admiration in many countries around the world, just knowing that this black boy who grew up with just a loving mother and grandparents -- and that was about all he had to start with -- does now have a chance to become the nominee of the Democratic Party for president."

Now, gee.

**Update**

A cut portion of the interview has now been made available.


Brian Williams: But President Carter, Sir. If you'll forgive me. Some have suggested that, at least early on, the Obama presidency seems to be almost mirroring yours in some important ways. Would you agree? And, if so, obviously, you're not black, Mr. President. Yet, unfortunately, and if you'll forgive me, Sir. The American people did also reject you after four years. How would you explain that, if you don't mind my asking, Sir? And doesn't that at least suggest that the American people are capable of rejecting a president for reasons other than race?


Former President Carter: Well, well, yes, Brian, you do raise a valid point, I suppose. But, but things are very different today. Very different in my view, Brian, if you'll permit me to explain. Back then, you see, well, I was simply an incompetent, ineffective, self-righteous dick who crashed a helicopter in the desert killing several men, while clinging to my Mother, Miss Lillian, God rest her cranky soul. And I, ... I also had a drunken little brother who kept pissing all over the White House lawn when he ran the dogs while Americans remained hostage overseas in Iran and I didn't have a clue what to do about it. Who wouldn't reject that? It did work out pretty well for Ted Koppel, though. So I know at least one guy in America was thrilled to have me there.


Brian Williams: Thank you, Mr. President. You do raise some interesting points.

That may be your preferred descriptor for your race but what we are looking for is a name for the practice of people putting their ethnic heritage above another's and discriminating or harming them on that basis. The word racism has been so abused that it has become meaningless.

I admit I just think of it as ethic collectivism. <Sigh> I admit it , beyond that, I can't think of another word...

I think Jimmy Carter was getting upset at the comparisons that maybe Obama would turn out to be a worse President than he was and he decided to reaffirm in our minds just how much he truly sucked.
