    Two-way street Jedd. He can say it, if he's stupid enough, and we can call him a idiotic POS for saying it. It's called freedom of speech, enjoy it.

    I look at Wilson and I ask myself "Has this guy ever said the word nigger in a demeaning manner, in his liftime?"

    The answer...

    ...yes.

    You don't have to like my opinion, frankly I could not give a damn.

    Anyone who votes to keep flying that flag at any public office is a racist son of bitch.

    Ummm . . .

    The St. Andrews Cross is the flag of Scotland.

    Much of this entire thread is a heated rant against Mr. Carter's right to have such a belief, & nothing more.
    Carter can say what he wants...as can we all. But words of consequences, and words said, in haste, or without substantiation, not only are dangerous, and can create problems where there are none...as I said in an earlier post in this thread, but can most certainly be criticized.

    If Carter can have a belief and say it, others can think this belief is idiotic and say it. It works both ways.

    Re: Jimmy Carter: Wilson comments 'based on racism'

    It is time for one of DP's favorite games: Hypocrisy Check!

    Is there a difference in the possibility of racism when someone tries to prevent the extradition of a former member of the SS verses if someone supports the flying of the Confederate flag.

    Winning on Hypocrisy Check! is never easy; lets see how many of you can.

    The Confederate flag is a trivial issue compared to someone who is an actual SS war criminal.

    So, someone who supports not extraditing a SS war criminal would be a racist; someone who supports flying the Confederate flag is NOT racist. Is this your position?

    I'd have to say that neither is indicative of racism in and of itself.
