Skip to comments.Carter: Universities blocked book promo
Posted on 12/09/2006 2:49:04 PM PST by West Coast Conservative
Jimmy Carter said universities with substantial Jewish enrollment have blocked him from discussing his book Palestine: Peace not Apartheid.
My most troubling experience has been the rejection of my offers to speak, for free, about the book on university campuses with high Jewish enrollment and to answer questions from students and professors, Carter said in an Op-Ed published Friday in the Los Angeles Times. The former U.S. president made a similar charge in a C-Span interview earlier this week; asked to elaborate, he would not name the universities, except to say he was invited by individual professors, but turned down by the universities leadership.
Carters book, which blames most of the impasse in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks on Israels settlement policy, is a New York Times No. 1 bestseller, and he has promoted it in multiple media appearances.
How do I say I do not care???
Shouldn't Carter have to pay them to come speak?
My most troubling experience has been the rejection of my offers to speak....
Now he knows what it feels like. He is a traitor!
Keep talking, peanut boy. You're doing a terrific job of showing people the real face of the Democrat Party.
Maybe he can learn to be treated as conservative speakers have been treated. Live with it Jimmy, this is a creation of yours!
I would pay him to shut up.
Ford may not have been the best candidate but he was several light years better then this twit.
Hey Jimmuhh, tell it to the Imams. We are sick of hearing your tripe!
That's right Nazi Jimmy. Blame the J-E-W-S.
There should be no doubt what Carter's final solution is.
Sorry. If Carter can't (won't) name the alleged Jewish
University, then I seriously doubt it happened. Besides,
Carter is a liar. Why should we trust this tall tale.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against Thy neighbors.
As they should. No traitor should be allowed to support the enemy on our shores.
Yep. At least Ford did no harm like the doctor's creed.
Carter is irrelevant. He's apparently becoming increasingly senile and no longer embarrassing the country, but also himself. Painful to watch.
He says he was "invited by individual professors".
I think it's a rule that there has to be at least one Ward Churchill at every university.
Well, he can always get a prominent place at the next Democratic National Convention. They always like to display this pious fraud who failed his nation when he was president and seems intent on offering the most phony moral arguments about any Republican.
That's always the language of the violence-prone anti-semite.
>>Maybe he can learn to be treated as conservative speakers have been treated.
No, I don't think he should be physically assaulted, just ignored.
Jimmy Carter: "Jews are to blame for 9/11."
Most American Jews will ignore the warning signs because he is a Democrat. What can be done ?
You can get plenty of whining when The Worst President Ever gets cut off
from some of his oxygen (big public-speaking fees/honorarium and free
advertizing for his propaganda books).
I was ticked at BookTV (CSpan2 weekends) giving this old fool about 3 hours
of free publicity last weekend.
But having one phone-caller tell him what he is was almost worth it.
(even if I have misgivings about "respect for the office, not the man")
The book tour should be called "The Unveiling of the Real Honest Jimmy"
***Fact Bastardization Alert***
Here's a link to Carter's op ed:
"This reluctance to criticize any policies of the Israeli government is because of the extraordinary lobbying efforts of the American-Israel Political Action Committee and the absence of any significant contrary voices."
"The book describes the abominable oppression and persecution in the occupied Palestinian territories, with a rigid system of required passes and strict segregation between Palestine's citizens and Jewish settlers in the West Bank. An enormous imprisonment wall is now under construction, snaking through what is left of Palestine to encompass more and more land for Israeli settlers. In many ways, this is more oppressive than what blacks lived under in South Africa during apartheid. I have made it clear that the motivation is not racism but the desire of a minority of Israelis to confiscate and colonize choice sites in Palestine, and then to forcefully suppress any objections from the displaced citizens."
The fact that Muslims want to wipe every Jew (and everyone else for that matter) off the face of the earth has nothing to do with it. F-ing idiot.
Hey Jimmy, get lost you ae a horses..arce. JK
Ford did not forsee what he would turn into. At the time Ford picked him he was known as a moderate conservative. In his early days as a SC justice Stephens voted to bring back capital punishment and voted against affirmative action. It's later he turned to the dark liberal side. It turned out with hindsight to have been a bad pick, yes.
Oh please. What university does NOT have a substantial Jewish population?? All it is is that NO ONE wants to hear him speak. What, does he only offer his spew at "Jewish" universities???? Does he check the enrollment first??
Ask him why he's offering to speak for free at such places?? It's because he's an ugly old anti-semite, that's why.
(ugly inside, and out)
Hitler probably had the same problem with "Mein Kampf"...
Don't know what is the proper tactic here
Tell him to stay away
Let him come and then in an honest debate have somebody who has researched all the lies etc etc in his book point them out
item by item and make a fool out of him
I think the second approach might be the better way
It is always better to have as many people know the facts and truth as possible
We would not be in our current war if Carter had not been elected.
I don't suppose the press would cover it, but I'd love to see a debate between Jimmuh and that professor who just severed his ties with him because he said that he couldn't work any longer for a lying, anti-semitic plagiarizer.
That would be interesting. The maybe he could debate someone like Ann Coulter over his contributions to making Iran such a contributor to world peace.
He did a plenty people just have short memories. Carter and Ford were politically more or less the same. Ford was the one who started us on a hands off policy on such thugs as Amin, Khomeini, Arafat, Qaddafi, Saddam, and others. It was his E.O. which put a prohibition against covert ops resulting in assassination against foreign heads of state. The result was thugs leaders knew it was safe to sponsor terrorist cells after that.
I never thought I would think Bill Clinton was a better ex-President than anyone. I was wrong.
Carter was a swine while he was in office and now he's a swine out of office.
Will he show up wearing a checkered towel on his head?
And now to more important stuff....
"Let us rap mini me"....
"911 came and they said they would fight back.
But Dimorats surrender, because they smoke crack
3000 died but the rats don`t care
They want Bush out, bring back the Clinton pair
Eight years of terror and fundraisers galore
The US burned while Bill screwed a whore
Now they want Hellary to rule once again
only this time it will be with a les-bi-an."
Jimmah shoulda stuck to shellin peanuts
Considering he and his ilk had nothing to say and no apparent outrage when Dr. Laura, David Horowitz, Ann Coulter, Ward Connerly, etc. etc. were banned, shouted down, demonstrated against..... forgive me if I don't give a rat's ass.
Jews still vote majority liberal so I dont get this at all.
Well, duh, that's what happens when you are excessively pro-Palentinian.
Yes, of course, Jimmy. Everyone knows that were it not for Israel, everyone in the Middle East would get along. Everyone knows that all the Islamic countries treat the Palestenians well and any problems are Israel's fault. /SARCASM
Well now...there's your problem right there Jimmuh bo'. If you want people to think your dribblings are worth a hoot, you should charge accordingly. Oh. You did. Never mind.
Now he knows what it feels like to be a conservative...
Won't name the universities? Hah--I don't believe you, peanuthead.
