Of Course Jimmy Carter Is Right

Hey folks. Spacetrucker here with another grammatically challenged blog written with my cell phone out in the isolation of a NASA test range. Please don't send me snark about the bad spelling. I am aware of it. If you think you can do better writing with a cell phone, fucking prove it.

As you know former President Jimmy Carter kicked some right-wingers in the shin the other day when he said that Congressman Joe Wilson's outburst at President Obama during the address to the joint congress was racially motivated.
Being from the south, Carter explained, he could recognize such fucktardary.
So far, I too, have lived my whole life in the deep south and I can say with confidence that Carter hit the nail on the fucking head.
There are people in the south who are the sweetest, coolest, and most polite folks you have ever seen in your whole goddam life. But you bring up Obama they start seething.
I know it's true, any other person living in the south knows it is true, and the fucking Republicans know it is true. The thing to debate is why the fuck they won't admit it.
A southern bigot is different than a yankee bigot.
Yankee bigots are usually like Archie Bunker. Usually a Christian, the yankee bigot simply doesn't like minorities because of the differences that most minorities have culturally.
Music, dress, holidays; these usually chap the old white yankee bastards ass when he is exposed to it. They believe whole-heartedly everyone should worship, follow the same sports, have the same holidays, ect. as they do.
The southern bigot believes the same way as all of the things listed above, but there is another driving factor thay really really gets the hate going: their grandaddies getting their asses handed to them in the Civil War. Or the War of Northern Aggression if you will.
Unlike the yankee "Archie Bunker" type of asshole, the southern fucktard usually is a nice person to be with. As long as you can keep politics and religion out of the conversation that is.
The election of Obama really hit the button on these people. I see it every day and looking at Joe Wilson, I can see it in him.
As a protégé of the late (and hopefully burning in hell) cocksucker Strom Thrumand, Joe Wilson embodies the racisim that is still the shame of the south.
You can tell by just looking at Wilson he is the type who can not just sit quietly and be lectured to by a "nigger". And he fucking proved it.
His subsequent non apology followed by the Republicans saying he was provoked by Obama more than proves this.
While most of the Repugs have learned to keep the "N" word in check while in public, behind closed doors, especially with a few beers or cocktails in their bellies, the truth comes out.
I hear it all the time. I see it all the time.
Jimmy Carter has seen it, and I imagine he still sees it.
To be jumping on Carters ass for pointing it out is disingenuous and dishonest, especially if you are some kind of yankee fucktard like Hannity or Limbaugh.
For the Republicans out there who claim they are not racists: How does it feel to know that ALL the racists are on your side politically?


  1. U R so wrong. I'm from Lower south Bama & I've spent time all over the world including NY Boston Chicago LA If u want to C segragation there it is. I'm 48 & I've never known segratation. I have live in bama most of my life & I have never see what I call real race hater execpt on TV or untill I spent time in those places.
    People are being racist because they care about freedom. Nobody I know care what color Obama is. U R A Racebaiter & I will take bait

  2. bama, If u live in Alabama, and I know u do, U know I am right. Bigots don't have to wear hoods and burn crosses, to hate minorities. I see it every day. I suspect you do too

  3. In addition to Spacetrucker's observations, President Carter didn't say that everyone who disagreed with President Obama's agenda were racists, he said that “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man,” A lot of the demonstrated animosity is a choreographed dance using dumbasses who think it is great to get on TV and voice their ill reasoned views to an eager audience fed by daily doses of Hannity, Beck and Limbaugh. While I do not believe that Jimmy Carter (arguably one of the most honest politicians that ever gained office) meant that all disageement with President Obama's policies is racially motivated, there is undoubtedly an element of racism in these protests, the most obvious being the stupidity over the President's speech to schoolchildren. I could go on and on about that, but suffice it to say that when the text of a speech is published in its entirety prior to being delivered, then the only excuse parents would have for not allowing their children to hear the speech would be that they do not want their children to look up to and admire the President of our country, who just happens to be a black man.

  4. Unfortunately, from what I have observed in Canada, where racism isn't quite as rampant, in order for bigotry against one race to subside or disappear it is usually replaced by bigotry towards another race. In Toronto back in the 50's and 60's there was a great deal of prejudice displayed towards Italians. This is no longer true but it was replaced by the equally detestable bigotry towards Pakistanis in the 70's. Today,in Toronto, I am not aware of any overwhelming, blatant hostility to any particular race but then, again, I am not a minority of any sort. I just hope that one day the insanity of racism will make itself plainly known to every person on this planet - but that's not likely to happen until parents acknowledge it and teach their children the evils of it.

  5. Certainly not every republican is a racist, but it seems the balance shifts strongly toward right wing racism. I have heard and seen it all and Jimmy Cater is correct in his analogy. Bigotry is and has long been a prevalent issue. Isn't it time for the world to grow up and accept our differences and our sameness?

  6. I applaud Carter's honesty. A friend once said that everyone is racist. Unfortunately, she's right. We've all got some fucktardary (great word BTW) in us when push comes to shove.
