14 Carter Center advisers resign in protest over book
Florida Times-Union / AP ^ | January 11, 2007 | GIOVANNA DELL'ORTO

ATLANTA - Fourteen members of a Carter Center advisory board who worked to build support for the human rights organization started by former President Jimmy Carter and his wife have resigned in protest over Carter's latest book.

The resignations, announced Thursday, are the latest in a backlash against the former president's book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," which has drawn fire from Jewish groups, been attacked by fellow Democrats and led to the resignation last month of Kenneth Stein, a Carter Center fellow and a longtime Carter adviser.

Is that a North Korean beer? Do they have grain to brew beer in N. Korea?

This could get very interesting. The Carter Center has raised 100's of millions of dollars over the years. I bet some of these folks know about things that they have done that might have a negative bearing on the nonprofit status of the center.

There's got to be something more to this. You can't tell me that they're just now finding out who Jimmuh Cahtah really is.

The Cahtah Centah receives taxpayer monies too. They're constantly in the hunt for federal grants and the like.

For years, I have held Jimmy Carter in even worse regard than I do for Bill Clinton.

And every time, he never fails to disappoint me with his third-party foreign policy meddling and his anti-American commentary, verbally and in writing.

I do detest that man. I would never hope for his death - but I do know that when's he gone, it won't bother me too much.

It helps to read the article at the link:

"The 200-member board is responsible for building public support for the Carter Center."

14 out 200 isn't all that many.

I respectfully disagree.

If 14 of 200 cops resigned in one day in protest, the chief of police would be in the mayors office explaining things.

That's almost as funny as the "kitten breaking the sound barrier" pic that flew around here a few months ago. Wish someone would repost it.

Dear wmc-50,

I understand your view, but nonetheless, I have a different perspective.

Mr. Carter wrote a blatantly anti-semitic piece of lying propaganda.

93% of his advisory board is fine with that.

I had a strange revelation while watching Carter's antisemitic meltdown when I found myself suddenly thinking of Pat Buchanan. Here you have two men, polar opposites on virtually every political issue, who give in to the worst aspect of their natures and essentially blow up their respective legacies and become dark figures on the fringe. Both Carter and Buchanan, respected if not admired for their dearly held political beliefs, impulsively sacrificed their reputations by going public with that most ancient prejudice--even though couching that particular prejudice in coy 'Israeli Lobby' or 'Zionist apartheid' terms.

I can't get my head around it--antisemitism, I mean. As a Christian, I worship a God who, while a Human Being on this earth, was addressed as Rabbi, who epitomized Jewishness, who proclaimed His Jewishness with every word spoken and miracle made. From my perspective, at any rate, antisemitism is incompatible with Christian faith. Why staunch, self-proclaimed Christians like Carter and Buchanan don't come to a similar conclusion baffles me.

At least Mel Gibson was drunk. Carter doesn't have an excuse. What's even more frightening? Carter was President.

Just read on FR yesterday that Carter and bubba are starting a new Southern Baptist organization for Southern Baptists who aren't narrow minded.

That's the bad news.




The good news is Carter has picked out a final resting place on his front lawn.

The only people who would join those two liberals would be pro-choice, and I hope Baptists are pro-life.

Perfect juxtaposition. Bubba and karter announce their intention to form a more perfect Southern Baptist Church and fourteen members of the Carter Center resign to protest his anti semitic book.

Bubba and the anti semite ~ perfect together.
