Former President Jimmy Carter has accused critics of Barack Obama of racism following an outburst by a Republican congressman. Does he have a point?
BY TOM CHIVERS
President Jimmy Carter says that criticism of Barack Obama shows that there is an inherent feeling in America that a black man should not be President. It follows the South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson shouting you lie! during a speech by the President to Congress.

The simple truth is, the ‘rats raising race as an issue when no-one else has shows that they are the true racists.
We know that we are winning the argument when they have to drag out the race bludgeon. That’s their position of last resort.
My first thought was "insane". I do believe Carter is insane and can't think rationally anymore.
No Jimmy, you idiot.....a COMMUNIST black man should not be president. Sheesh.
Besides, Jimmy, his momma is WHITE.
Jimmy Carter’s problems in life are caused by the fact that his brain is no larger than those peanuts he grows.
bingo!! they are the ones trying to create a racism divide here...they are pitting black against white when all we are doing is protesting poor policy...
I want a formal apology from and a congressional of James Earl Carter, stupidest president EVER.
I disagree with 0bama’s IDEOLOGY, not his ancestry.
It’s not his skin color I despise, it’s his IDEOLOGICAL color - COMMUNIST RED - that I despise.
Same color, and same reason, I despise James Earl Carter, stupidest president EVER.
And tomorrow, Obama sends out his other tool, Bill Clinton, to maintain that all disagreement with our new white KING OBAMA (he is as white as he is black) is RACISM.
(What do you think lunch at Il Mullino’s was all about?)
Are the 96% of the black folks who voted for Obama RACIST for not voting for Mccain/Palin??
Nevermind...that was RACIAL PRIDE
Someone needs to tell Carter to stop inserting himself into the political picture. He’s done, over, and he was the worst president to ever be elected until O came around.
So how many times has Jimmy Carter been right about Anything? Anything.....
How much longer can obama and the liberal/socialists throw-down the race card before they completely wear it out? The edges are already frayed, the lettering and imagry a little smudged, and it is starting to have the distinct odor of "crying wolf" about it...
Really, if we're all really sooo racist, why haven't we had just a plethora of racial incidents? How could women and minorities have made such great advances? We must hide it well! ;-)
” I do believe Carter is insane and can’t think rationally anymore.”
....actually this has been going on for a long time with him....remember back in the 1970s when he blamed us for national problems?....said our “malaise” was setting the country back....and BTW, back then ABC News used to really go after him...Sam Donelson in particular....can anybody imagine the MSM going after Obama with hard questions?
A man like Carter who has a legendary hatred for Jews should be the last one to comment on racism.
Jimmy Carter is a simpering, insipid fool who has continually tried to repair his much earned reputation as AMERICA'S ABSOLUTELY WORST PRESIDENT, EVER
Nothing, nothing he has ever said is meaningful much less intelligent
Jimmy Carter...........SHUT YOUR HOLE!
Former President Jimmy Carter has accused critics of Barack Obama of racism following an outburst by a Republican congressman.
Yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah - whites are Racists. What else is new.
ps: Watch out Jimmah an Attack Rabbit is behind you.
Gotta run now.
My Lawn Jockey needs his morning gruel and a blanket.
It got cold last night.
This is the leftists tactic to shut down vocal resistance to Obama’s policies. If you speak out against the government takeover of America, you are branded a racist.
keep speaking out loud and often and they won’t get their way.
They can call me racist till the cows come home and it doesn't bother me a bit. The days of walking on egg shells so you won't be thought of as racist are gone forever.
Michael Moore (quote), from his website, April 14, 2004...
"The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win. Get it, Mr. Bush?"
[actual quote from Michael Moore (2004). It still appears on his website]
How ironic that Carter should use the phrase inherent feeling. It makes his statement more racist than what he’s accusing Joe Wilson of.
Inherent means “involved in the constitution or essential character of something : belonging by nature or habit”. (M-W Online)
Carter is a racist.
I will exchange Obama for Walter E Williams for President any day of the week. Skin color has no bearing on the matter, only the condition of the mind and heart.
Straight from the Mugabe playbook...never mind the havoc that Dear Leader is wreaking on his country, if you disagree with him you must be a racist. It is the ultimate argument-stopper for dictators around Africa, so why not use it here?
Get a clue, Carter and the other race-baiters, we don’t disagree with Obama because of his pigmentation, we disagree with him because his policies and agenda are destroying this great nation.
And desperate. They don’t realize that their last gasp hope, (cry racism) doesn’t scare anyone any longer, it just makes folks madder.
I liked what John Rich said last night on Hannity: (paraphrasing) “Who cares what Jimmy Carter thinks? Jimmy Carter didn’t matter back when he was supposed to matter.”
“.... there is an inherent feeling in America that a black man should not be President ....”
Well, obviously those folks were not in the majority last November. The sad thing is that old white racists, such as this man, keep going to their well and hauling up this drek. Did I mention that this guy is not especially fond of Israeli Jews? Not surprisingly, a racist is often the first to broach the subject of race, as they tend to view the world through that anachronistic set of glasses.
Realistically, this embarassing pronouncement by a former president indicates that he is simply a kindred spirit with O. Sadly, these are simply the words of an old man desperately grasping for credibility. Fortunately for us, his time has past. Now we have far greater threats to the Republic that we must concern ourselves with.
Racism: a word that has been rendered useless by the radical left.
“.....the race bludgeon. Thats their position of last resort.”
Disagree. They pull the “Race Card” at the drop of a hat as it’s a proven winner to defeat discussion.
NOT a proven winner of anything other than to stop discussion and get their way on whatever it is they are targeting at the time.
Note the discussion of “YOU LIE” is now “YOU’RE A RACIST”? The Lying, THE LIE has to be restored to its rightful position as the topic of discussion rather than racism.
As I wrote in previous threads we have to tell them to take their racism and shove it where the Sun don’t shine, and NOT let them get away with playing the race card anymore.
Expose their abuse of the race issue, and they will be defeated. Expose their overused tactic of sidestepping an issue with racism, or whatever they use to divert attention at the time versus honest discussion of the actual topic and they will be defeated.
Call them on their tactic, their Bullscoot each and everytime they try it.
Dare to out shout them.
So you nowadays can’t call a liar a liar without being racist???
Whenever race becomes the front and center issue, Obama drops about 10 points in approval. Scuttlebutt is that Obama is working with his staff to get this race stuff out of the news. But that’s like trying to keep chocolate out of the hands of a chocoholic (no pun intended). It’s just too irresistible for some.
Jimmy and Rosalyn will always consider him a great success as President, and no amount of truth will change their minds.
He never used the word; it was his friends in the liberal media who coined “malaise”. Up to4 0 perdent of the misguided American people will always believe in GA Jimmy.
Carter suffers guilt from his slave owning heritage. Somehow he has convinced himself he can be redeemed by pointing his finger and calling others who don’t have a history of slaveownership in their family, racist.
Sorry Jimmy, you can accuse others of what your family was all you want, but that does not change your history, nor will it redeem you.
If you want redemption for the sins of your fathers, sell that peanut farm along with everything you own. Then pay reparations to the living relatives of your family’s victims. Herein lies your salvation.
Who gives a hoot in hell what Carter has to say about anything? I sure as hell don’t.
Here’s racist for you Jimmy...from “Whitey”, Your a two bit cracker, and like Baraq U Baw Maw, your a PUTZ!!!!!
“cant you see this is the last act of a desperate man?”
-Howard Johnson, circa 1973
When someone says I’m racist when I disagree with the Mini-Messiah’s views, I just tell them that he is half white and I am addressing his white side. Shuts them up.
