The Democrats are using Jimmy Carter as a dog whistle to anti-Semites and thug dictators.
The news that Democrat former president Jimmy Carter would be making a video address to the empty seats in the Bank America stadium where the Democrat National Convention (DNC) will be held was instructive. It cleared away any chance of misunderstanding the depth of hatred for Jews and Israel the Democrat Party has. Short of saying the words “We hate Israel and Jews”, using the addled peanut farmer from Georgia, the Democrats could not have made a clearer statement of their feelings.
Jimmy Carter is now and always has been an anti-Semite. He has always had a foaming-at-the- mouth animosity towards Israel. He has always sided with Islamic terrorists such as Yasir Arafat for whom he wrote speeches to help him fool Westerners into think he was a Jeffersonian revolutionary. Even though Carter is a World War II veteran, in one of his books on the wars between Israel and her Arab enemies, he left out the Holocaust as a pivotal event in 20th century history.
Carter’s book “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid” was so full of hatred for Jews that 14 members of his staff resigned in disgust over it. Jimmy Carter is clearly a dog whistle. His speech is a wink to the anti-Semites in and out of the Middle East. It will tell them that once safely reelected, Barack Obama won’t do a thing to help Israel when the Islamists attack them again.
Carter will be a dog whistle to America-hating thug (and pal) Hugo Chavez as well.
In 2003, the poor suckers in Venezuela actually ASKED Carter to come in and be a watchdog during their election as they tried to kick Hugo Chavez out. Going into Election Day, two separate polls showed Chavez DOWN 2 to 1. When the votes were counted, Carter’s pal Hugo had WON by a 2 to 1 margin. Carter declared the election was honest despite the statistically impossible 40 point turn around. Having Carter address the DNC sends a clear dog whistle message to Hugo Chavez that once reelected, Obama will look away while the Russians build Venezuela’s first nuclear power plant (and the two countries strengthen their ties.)
It will give Hugo and Putin a green light to threaten America because our president is with them.
