Jimmy Carter’s Nuts
People accuse others of being “racists” just because they disagree with the faulty logic or unreasonable programs put forth by someone “of color” (hey–we’re all “people of color”, actually).
Some on the left label black conservatives, and all those appointed by Republican presidents, “Uncle Toms”. That is a disgusting attempt to say that they aren’t acting “black”–when actually, conservatives and Republicans believe in freedom combined with responsibility, a noble philosophy. They portrayed Condoleezza Rice as Aunt Jemima in a vicious cartoon, and tried to destroy Judge Clarence Thomas. Meanwhile, Democrats seem to want Americans to be enslaved to the government. Petty, left-leaning partisans stoop to these reprehensible, racist tactics because they are bereft of good ideas, and wish to divert attention from their lust for power. Former president Jimmy Carter is a bitter partisan with a lot of baggage, and some inherent racism of his own, which he projected onto others just to get attention. There are plenty of black politicians and intellectuals in the United States who disagree with the current president, who happens to be part-black and half-white. I don’t hear them being called “racists”–because they are not. They simply disagree with an ideology that threatens America’s foundation. No, people don’t dislike President Obama because he is part black–there are many other reasons, all of which involve the reckless expenditure of trillions that haven’t created jobs, and the threat to spend more on destructive programs.
Moderate Americans and conservatives alike focus solely on the ideology of others, not their “race” or color. We take Dr. Martin Luther King’s philosophy seriously, and judge people by the content of their character.
It is the height of rudeness to call someone a racist without ample evidence–it is stupid and simplistic; the only response that those devoid of ideas can summon into their vapid minds. What a shame that Americans are not allowed to philosophically disagree with those who are devoted to trashing the Constitution of the United States, without being mindlessly labelled “racists” by the undereducated and addled group of extreme partisans.
Small-minded political hacks rely on the useful label, “racist”, when they are unable to support their argument. It is an outmoded, hackneyed ploy to change the debate and remove focus from vitally important issues. This blatant race-baiting and outright racism must stop.

“…presumably a nod to gay rights”—a “NOD TO”? How about a ridiculous, baseless accusation combined with a hateful, dangerous and vicious ATTACK? I am NOT a Newt supporter by any means, in fact, I wish he would go back to wherever he learned to mispronounce America as “uhMURRica” but I have never heard him utter a bigoted statement of ANY KIND!
SICK! The bald-faced hypocrisy of the attacker’s hate-crime is just mind-boggling.
