Dick and Diane Get Upset, LOL
Liberals are transcendently dishonest, especially liberal politicians, but we expect them to be morally opprobrious. But when we step back and examine those who abandon all truthfulness and intellectual integrity, it is then that we question just what the world has come to.
You will recall that I very recently wrote a piece regarding the abomination of civil propriety Jimmy Carter was and remains. Not surprisingly there were those who assured me in monosyllabic vernacular that Carter is nothing short of a saint.
One such form of deceived and profoundly biblically illiterate life, are family members named Dick and Diane Cox. They epitomize the point I am about to make.
It seems that Dick and Diane Cox interrupted the flaccidness of their otherwise intellectually impotent existence to attack me for daring to tell the truth. But then isn’t that the way it is with liberals? When they find themselves incapable of cogent factual based discourse they resort to boorish commonality and ad hominem attacks as a means of response.
Dick and Diane Cox mailed me the postcard pictured at the top of this article. It is a raw display of biblical ignorance and hatred for documented facts that are easily verified.
The biblically illiterate and the unsaved errantly conflate religion and the outward perception of what they consider same, with being a born-again Christian. I assure you the two are not remotely close in substance or meaning.
Dick and Diane Cox were beside themselves because I spoke the truth about Carter while being a supporter of President Trump. They specifically pointed out that Carter was a “religious man.” I’m sorry (not really), to burst their balloon but Carter is a pernicious liar and has been a racist and anti-Semite his entire life.
The facts I shared about Carter speak for themselves. The following is an excerpt from my syndicated op-ed: “Jimmy Carter: What You Should Know As He Attacks President Trump.”
Carter accused then Governor Reagan, who was in the process of delivering the deathblow that would limit Carter’s damage to one term, of being racist.
So untoward and viciously untruthful were the attacks by Carter against his Presidential opponent Ronald Reagan, that Nancy Reagan took the unprecedented step of doing a television commercial, verbally delivering the equivalent of a hard wet slap for his lies in which he accused Governor Reagan of wanting to divide America, “Black from white, Christian from Jew.”
In college Ronald Reagan had taken several black members of his college football team home to stay with he and his family, because Jim Crow laws that Carter used to his advantage while ascending the ranks in Georgia politics, prohibited blacks from staying in “whites only” hotel(s). Ronald Reagan quit a California country club in protest when he learned the club barred Jews. And, it’s a fact that as Governor, Ronald Reagan appointed hundreds more blacks to his administration than progressive Democrat predecessors Earl Warren and Pat Brown had done.
Jimmy Carter on the other hand loved to boast at every opportunity how his “mamma had taken care of their niggras.” I can still his reprehensible campaign references to his “mamma and the niggras.”
Carter forgot to mention that he was rabid supporter of Lester Maddox, an icon of segregation in the Jim Crow south. In 1970 Carter called his gubernatorial opponent “Cuffs” and “Cufflinks” which was a racist euphemism for saying his opponent dressed like a “nigger.” His campaign even produced photos of his opponent, Carl Sanders with black members of the Atlanta Hawks basketball team. Imagine the temerity to be photographed with “niggers,” was Carter’s unspoken message. Carter made sure to tell the media his “mamma took care of ‘their’ niggras,” but it was clear that being photographed with them as equals violated his Southern mores.
As Shirley pointed out: “Carter in the early ‘60s, supported legislation in the Georgia State Senate that would have effectively eviscerated The Civil Rights Acts, and would have prevented the desegregation of public schools there.”
Carter loves to boast about teaching Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church and the now fawning fraudulent so-called journalists, lap it up like flies on a manure pile. The question that begs an answer is: When will the media ask Carter why he voted to ban blacks from joining the Plains Baptist Church, which was his home church?
It’s either a form of journalistic presbyopia or deliberate ignoring by dishonest so-called journalists who see no equipoise in making it known that Carter in 1976, as a presidential candidate supported the effort called “Massive Resistance,” which opposed racial integration on every and all levels.
Carter isn’t half the man President Trump is and Carter, along with his bigoted Democrat party members combined, haven’t done for America in their history what President Trump has done in three years.
Carter should kiss the feet of Obama for getting him off the hook as the worst president in history. And the Maranatha Baptist Church should be questioned how they can defend having a person like Carter teaching Sunday school in their church? Is the church taking Carter’s money and closing their eyes to what he represents.
President Trump has not lied to the public about what he was before God opened his eyes to the evil of abortion and the destruction of family. President Trump despite being attacked and undermined by Democrats and Republicans alike continues by the grace of God to “Make America Great Again.”
With Carter we had daily “misery index” reports, the betrayal of the Pahlavi family in Iran, which gave way to the ayatollahs and the Iranian hostage ordeal. With Carter we had “misery index” of 22 percent (a percentage unheard of before or since), we had 17 to 20 percent mortgage rates, 70 percent tax rates, 16 percent inflation rate and unemployment rate approaching 8 percent.
Maybe Dick and Diane Cox would like to tell me what part of what I wrote was untrue and what part of what I wrote portrays Carter as anything apart from what he is and always has been.
Building houses doesn’t make you a Christian any more than feeding the poor or buying shoes for the shoeless makes you a Christian. It does however make you a humanitarian, which without Jesus Christ as your Savior doesn’t make one a Christian either.
The biblically illiterate and the unsaved conflate works with salvation. Suffice it to say that is a massive error.
Calling Carter honest and open-minded is laughable on its face. He exampled his honesty and open-mindedness when refused to have blacks in his church. He showed his honesty when he carried empty suitcases and pretended they were filled with his clothes and books so the press would talk about how humble he was. Apparently Dick and Diane Cox have a different definition than we do for the idea of honesty.
For their final attempt at taking a cheap shot at me, they said: “Get a conscience little man.” Let’s examine that failed attempt to insult me. Let me tell you what I know. It was Diane Cox who wrote and mailed this postcard of “Golfing in Palm Springs,” even though it was mailed from San Bernardino. She didn’t have the guts to attack on her own so she hid behind her husband thus portraying him as a “sphincter externus” also. She is the kind of person I wouldn’t want as a neighbor and if she worked at a place I did business with, I would take my business elsewhere, because as I said, her kind cannot be trusted.
Also sending me a postcard with a photo of a golf course in Palm Springs hardly impresses me. For the record my wife and I live in a pretty nice zip code too. Which brings me to another thing I would like to point out as well. If I were given to seeing all white people as racists and bigots I could very easily call her a bigot. But I don’t believe in marginalizing true skin color bigotry by accusing those like this woman who are absent dignity of necessarily being racist albeit she is by definition a bigot.
I also point out that she had to go on my website to get my mailing address. Thus she could have posted a comment and been done with it. But, I submit, that she in a vain attempt to impress me with a golf course post card and also to hide behind her husband, mailed a postcard. Well, Diane where I come from real men don’t put up with your kind. And people like you are looked upon with scorn.
