Video: Jimmy Carter on the Muslim Brotherhood

There is a reason why Jimmy Carter is thought of as the worst president in modern times (until Obama).  There is a reason why Iran was able to jerk Jimmy's chain for so long. The reason is simple, Jimmy Carter is a complete and unabashed jackass.

Not even ten seconds after saying that the Muslim Brotherhood has ties to some of the worst terrorist groups in the world, he says we have nothing to worry about.  He is completely wrong with his idea that Egyptians are these modern day secularist. Recent polling shows they have very strong beliefs in Islam, the so called "Religion of Peace".

From recent polling of Egyptians we find:

Reuters [emphasis mine]:
59%: Say democracy is preferable to any other form of government.
22%: Say a non-democratic system can be preferable in certain circumstances
Islam in politics
95%: Say it’s good that Islam plays a large role in politics
85%: Say Islam’s influence on politics is good

48%: Say Islam currently play a large role in Egyptian politics
Islamist extremism
80%: Think suicide bombings are never or rarely justified.
20%: Think suicide bombings are sometimes or often justified
70%: Are concerned or very concerned about Islamist extremism in the world
61%: Are concerned or very concerned about Islamist extremism in the Egypt
Traditional Muslim practices
54%: Believe men and women should be segregated in the workplace
82%: Believe adulterers should be stoned
84%: Believe apostates from Islam should face the death penalty
77%: Believe thieves should be flogged or have their hands cut off
Sorry but those numbers don't look very secular to me.  Thank God Jimmy is out of the White House.  Now if we can only get through the next two years of his psychedelic soul brother.

I used to believe that Carter was just a "nice guy" in way over his head. I STILL think that he was in way over his head. However, after all of his lies and back-biting since he left office, I no longer believe he's a nice guy.

I appreciate the distinctive Mr. Carter, i share his views on Israel and Jews. The jews--being collectively an absense of liberty- do not recognize liberty. As a consequence of such authoritarianism they have brought a lawsuit against him for his book. I do not agree that segregation is wrong, nor do i believe it is an accurate description. As for the Muslim Brotherhood that is not our culture and by the premise that we would like to keep them from expressing themselves--vindicates them.

ref gs: yes

ref wwlm: wtf? no other rejoinder is warranted (well, the claim of the last "premise" in your comment could be debated as a premise, but not worth the effort)

Only the most left of the left knows Jimmy is still alive. So no worries.

"unabashed jackass" covers it nicely.
