Catastrophies of the Left

We’d like to take credit for it, but “Jimmy Carter, The Muslims, and Other Catastrophies” is the title of Burt Prelutsky’s latest column at townhall. Funny, pitiful stuff. On Jimmy Carter:

Few would deny that Hamas, along with Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, represents Islamic terrorism at its very worst.

Yet, just a few days after the murderous rampage in Gaza that saw Hamas thugs butchering the opposition in the streets and tossing victims off tall buildings, there’s Carter leaping to their defense. …

If his send-off were left to me, I would simply point out that the man somehow managed to go from being the worst president in my lifetime to being the worst ex-president in American history.

On Mike Nifong and the shame of Duke University:

That is why it was such a joyous event when Mike Nifong received the legal profession’s version of a public spanking. The only problem with his comeuppance is that there were so many others who got off scot-free. I’m referring to the media, the Duke students and the school administrators, who were all as eager as Nifong to lynch the members of the lacrosse team.

But worst of all were the blacks of Durham, North Carolina, whose votes elected Nifong, even though it was obvious from the very beginning of the tawdry mess that he didn’t have a leg to stand on, but was simply counting on race-pandering to win him the election.

Why are we letting CAIR shove us into Dhimmitude? Here’s how Prelutsky phrases it:

Why, for example, are various municipalities bending over backwards to accommodate Muslims? When Muslims working at Target refuse to sell pork products, why aren’t they fired on the spot? When Minnesota Muslims refuse to convey seeing eye dogs in their taxis, why aren’t their medallions yanked? And why have the good folks at the Kansas City Airport provided, at taxpayers’ expense, foot baths for Muslim cabbies?

How is it, I’d like to know, that in a nation where far too many people mistakenly believe that the Constitution bans Nativity scenes, menorahs and Christmas trees, in public places, Islamists are encouraged to shove their bloody religion down our throats?

Answer: Political Correctness and the spinelessness of liberalism. Whoops, I mean “progressivism.”
