Mass Resignation at Carter Center
This is so fucking beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes:
ATLANTA — Fourteen members of an advisory board at the Carter Center resigned today, concluding they could “no longer in good conscience continue to serve” following publication of former President Jimmy Carter’s controversial book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.”Friends, I don't hate many people. I don't even hate most of the jihadis who'd dearly love to cut my head off for the sake of Allah. But I'm not shy to say I hate Jimmy Carter with a passion. The day that Ronald Reagan took the nation back from Carter in 1981 is still one of the happiest days of my life. Carter is an embarassment to America, to the West, and to humanity itself. Any day he gets a black eye is a good day.
“It seems that you have turned to a world of advocacy, including even malicious advocacy,” the board members wrote in a letter, a copy of which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. “We can no longer endorse your strident and uncompromising position. This is not the Carter Center or Jimmy Carter we came to respect and support. Therefore it is with sadness and regret that we hereby tender our resignation from the Board of Councilors of the Carter Center effective immediately.”
