Betsy: The Bigoted Void That is Jimmy Carter

She says:

Jimmy Carter writes a column for the Los Angeles Times denying that he is anti-Israel. Oh, and by the way, any criticism of him is all the Jews' fault.
For the last 30 years, I have witnessed and experienced the severe restraints on any free and balanced discussion of the facts. 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.

It would be almost politically suicidal for members of Congress to espouse a balanced position between Israel and Palestine, to suggest that Israel comply with international law or to speak in defense of justice or human rights for Palestinians.
He whines for the rest of the column about how Jews have criticized his book and he can't get invitations to speak on college campuses with large Jewish enrollment.
Read the whole thing. Jimmy Carter's blatant antisemitism continues to confound. He just keeps on truckin' down Liberal Supremacist highway.
