Jimmy Carter: Emissary of Evil
Townhall.com ^ | 16 April 2008 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 04/16/2008 12:23:41 AM PDT by Aussie Dasher

Jimmy Carter is an evil man. It is painful to label a past president of the United States as a force for darkness. But it is dangerous to let a man like Jimmy Carter stalk around the globe cloaked in the garb of American royalty, planting the seeds of Western civilization's destruction.

On Tuesday, former President Carter met with leaders of the terrorist group Hamas. He embraced Nasser al-Shaer, the man who has run the Palestinian education system, brainwashing children into believing Jews are the descendants of pigs and dogs. He laid a wreath at the grave of Yasser Arafat, the most notorious terrorist thug of the 20th century. Then, he had the audacity to offer to act as a conduit between the Palestinian Arabs and the Israeli and U.S. governments. This is somewhat like Lord Haw-Haw offering to broker peace between the German and British governments during World War II.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter visits the grave of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in the West Bank city of Ramallah April 15, 2008. During his visit to Ramallah on Tuesday, Carter said he planned to meet Palestinian political leaders, including Naser al-Shaer, who served as deputy prime minister in the Hamas-led government formed after the 2006 election. REUTERS/Atef Safadi/Pool (WEST BANK) Related Media: VIDEO: Controversial Trip VIDEO: Meeting With Terror Carter is a notorious anti-Semite and an even more notorious terrorism- enabler. In particular, he is a huge supporter of Palestinian violence. He considered himself a friend to Arafat, as Jay Nordlinger of National Review wrote in his masterful 2002 piece, "Carterpalooza!": After the Gulf War, when Saudi Arabia was perturbed by Arafat's support for Saddam Hussein, Carter flew to the country at Arafat's behest to soothe the Saudis. In 1990, Carter told Arafat, "You should not be concerned that I am biased. I am much more harsh with the Israelis." He then proceeded to agree with Arafat that "the Reagan administration was not renowned as promise keepers," according to Douglas Brinkley.

Carter subsequently wrote one of Arafat's speeches, penning these vomit-inducing lines: "A good opening would be to outline the key points of the Save the Children report Then ask: 'What would you do, if these were your children and grandchildren? As the Palestinian leader, I share the responsibility for them. Our response has been to urge peace talks, but the Israeli leaders have refused, and our children continue to suffer. Our people, who face Israeli bullets, have no weapons: only a few stones remaining when our homes are destroyed by the Israeli bulldozers.' Then repeat: 'What would you do, if these were your children and grandchildren?' This exact litany should be repeated with a few other personal examples."

Not surprisingly, Carter's ardent hatred for Israel translates into a Jeremiah Wright-esque hatred for the United States -- the country he has never forgiven for throwing him out on his ear in 1980 in favor of Ronald Reagan.

Here's Carter on America's refusal to fund Hamas: "Innocent Palestinian people are being treated like animals, with the presumption that they are guilty of some crime. Because they voted for candidates who are members of Hamas, the United States government has become the driving force behind an apparently effective scheme of depriving the general public of income, access to the outside world and the necessities of life."

Jimmy Carter is all about Jimmy Carter. During his presidency, he gave up the Panama Canal and allowed the Ayatollahs to take power in Iran -- all for the praise of the international community. In 1980, he asked the Soviet Union to release Jewish emigrants, hoping that such action would soften American feeling against the USSR and thereby swing the presidential election to him. In 1984, he told the Russians that if Reagan were re-elected, there would not "be a single agreement on arms control, especially on nuclear arms, as long as Reagan remained in power." In 2002, Carter accepted the Nobel Peace Prize, despite a clear indication by Nobel Committee members that the prize was meant as a rebuke to President Bush.

Does all this make Carter evil, or just a useful idiot? By all accounts, Carter is highly intelligent -- perhaps the most intelligent president of the last 50 years. It would be foolish to write him off as simply naive. He is quite willing to be used by dictators from Venezuela to Cuba to North Korea, so long as helping them polishes his legacy. For almost three decades, Carter has pandered to enemies of Western civilization, shielding his treasonous behavior with the title of "ex-president." His Hamas-hugging is just the latest entry in a political diary that would make Osama Bin Laden proud.

Carter is hated by the right and the left.

I remember he even pissed off Clinton screwing things up there as well.

The guy is a problem for our country.

To paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill,

“An empty limousine pulled up at the gravesite of Yassir Arafat in the city of Ramallah, and Jimmy Carter got out.”

Ah, Carter, the reason why we have to fear North Korea. He is like the King Midas in Reverse on foreign policy. Say how badly Herbert Hoover was on economic policy, at least on foreign policy he didn’t screw anything up. Carter, on the other hand, wants us to know that he was bad in anything he has done and is the worst President. Why Palestine? What a knucklehead.

Why can’t Mr. Liberal Human Rights go to Tibet, or China, or help the Zimbabwe election crisis? His Administration helped put Robert Mugabe in power(a legacy like the Ayathollah(SP?)). Oh he is too busy following his current line that is so disgraceful even his closest supporters are calling him an Anti-Semite.

Perhaps there is something that could keep Carter on U.S. soil. The laws governing Secret Service protection should be altered just a bit, so that they can only protect ex-presidents on U.S. soil.

Let Carter go to Israel with no protection.

Please...

“Senility is a terrible thing.”

I can’t speak to Carter’s possible senility. But I don’t see that this action represents any sort of change from the anti-American activities of Carter’s past 20 years.

That raises a question (not about the chicken bone).

Is Secret Service protection a right of ex-presidents or a courtesy granted because of their status. Also can a President advise an ex-pres that the Secret Service protection is only guaranteed domestically, not outside of the U.S.?

It might make a difference to Carter and Clinton if they knew that their protection could be suspended or done away with altogether.

"Carter is highly intelligent -- perhaps the most intelligent president of the last 50 years. It would be foolish to write him off as simply naive."

I was thinking this was one of the best things I've ever read about Carter until the "highly intelligent" comment. I was more content to see him as an egotistical simpleton with delusions of having a grand place in history if only Reagan hadn't gotten in the way, a view merely made Carter an often dangerously useful idiot.

Maybe he is intelligent. Maybe he is super intelligent.

Shapiro is just figuring it out? See, we pro-lifers can figure these things out decades ahead of others. I knew Carter was evil the day he wrinkled his brow, and thought so, so deeply, and, in a delicately nuanced way, said "I'm personally opposed to abortion..."

Carter is the worst President on record. I feel sorry for those submariners serving on the sub named after him.

My fear this election season is that Obama could take his place as the worst President ever.

DFU SONG: Black and White (whether Carter or Clinton was the worst will be debated forever)
DFU SONG PARODIES ^ | 8-2006 | Lyrics, Doug from Upland

Posted on 08/20/2006 11:08:10 AM PDT by doug from upland MIDI - BLACK AND WHITE

There's some who say Bill Clinton's worse
While others have claimed that Carter's cursed
Well, we all know how bad they were
It's difficult for all to concur...for all to concur

Each one had sucked in his own way
But neither will leave the stage today...stage today

One's known for rape, that's clear to most
He dropped his pants from coast to coast
The other knew not what to do
With hostages held, he had no clue...he had not a clue

Each one had sucked in his own way
But they won't leave the stage today...stage today

Each one we've come to so abhor
They won't shut up while we're at war
You'd think they'd have some common sense
Each one of those guys harmed our defense...they harmed our defense

So much was done by scumbag Bill
What Carter did is with us still
Ignoring the Islamist threat
Today's trouble is their fault, you bet...it's their fault, you bet

There's some who say Bill Clinton's worse
While others claim that Carter's cursed
Well, we all know how bad they were
It's difficult for all to concur...for all to concur

Another opinion on Jimmy...

Looking Back at Life
By Ed Koch
April 15, 2008

[snip]

I came to know Carter well.

When he ran for re-election, he asked me to campaign for him in 1980 - I was by then Mayor of New York City -- and I said that I would vote for him, but not campaign for him because he was then engaging in hostile acts towards Israel. I was popular with the Jewish community and when I would not campaign for him unless he changed his position, he called me to his hotel in New York when attending a fundraiser and said, "You have done me more damage than any man in America."

I felt proud then, and even more today, since we now know what a miserable president he was then and the miserable human being he is now as he prepares to meet with Hamas.

From here

Then in an interview over the weekend Mr. Carter had this to say about dealing with democracies versus dictatorships. From the Wall Street Journal:

"In a democracy, I realize you don't need to talk to the top leader to know how the country feels. When I go to a dictatorship, I only have to talk to one person and that's the dictator, because he speaks for all the people."

OMG - WHAT THE HELL is WRONG WITH THAT MAN??????? Somebody needs to have a serious talk with his relatives about having him put away...maybe in a rest home, or something. He's really losing it. Stick him back in Habitat for Humanity and shut him up. DAMN!
