Jimmy Carter didn’t get his way in the Sudan and boy was he hopping mad about it. His hapless delegation called “The Elders” arrived in a Sudanese town and their way was blocked when he tried to talk with some starving Christians in a refugee compound.
“You can’t go. It’s not on the program!” the local security chief, who only gave his first name as Omar, yelled at Carter, who is in Darfur as part of a delegation of respected international figures known as “The Elders.”
“We’re going to anyway!” an angry Carter retorted as a crowd began to gather. “You don’t have the power to stop me.”
The Islamic government security forces did stop him and his secret service detail told him to get his sorry ass back in the car.
So Jimmy Carter yelled some more and got in his car and went away, once again refusing to learn a lesson that an 83-year old former president should already know about those who fight holy wars. Later he tried again to meet refugees at a government organized propaganda event, but all of the refugees were too afraid to show up.
When liberals talk, sometimes nobody listens. The problem with confronting Islamist destruction in the world with nice guys like Jimmy Carter should be obvious to everyone else, even if it will never be obvious to Carter himself.
But instead, there was Jimmy Carter at a roadstop talking having a temper tantrum about pro-government Islamists who are now indistinguishable from the Janjaweed. These are the people who are still raping, pillaging, and enslaving whatever remains of Sudanese Christians and other indigent Africans.
When the Sudan is covered in our liberal media, rarely do they mention the underlying religious reasons for the current troubles. When Muslims slaughter Christians, that inconvenient fact is not worth reporting in the MSM.
