I was reading Billy Beer’s namesake’s brother’s silly remarks yesterday in today’s Washtimes and thought, this is some typically thin gruel, even for him:
Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst to President Barack Obama during a speech to Congress last week was an act “based on racism” and rooted in fears of a black president.
I mean, Democrytes are all about name calling when they have nothing else to talk about. Being able to channel someone’s “fears” is typical pablum too.
But I had a second thought. J. Carter has almost made a career of careening about the world offering his support and whatever fading, reflective glow a failed presidency confers upon someone to whatever tinhorn dictator du jour is slapping the US around or is deep into stealing a sham vote to shore up their despotism. As long as they hated America, or Jews, or better yet, both, Jimmy was on it. Thinking this, I asked myself– so, how is calling Joe Wilson a racist any different than Jimmy’s usual tour de farce? He’s doing his best to prop up a would be tinhorn dictator who comes complete with a high profile vote fraud organization, who apparently hates America; Jews I don’t know about. Same dirge. Different audience. Same non-effect.
