Oy, (Grand)Son of Jimmuh: Third Generation of Carters Gets Into Politics, Won’t Answer Israel Questions
Some political families are like herpes. You just can’t get rid of ‘em. And so it goes for the family of Jimmy Carter.
Like Herpes: HAMAS’ Jimmuh Returns in Form of Grandson Jason Carter
Jimmuh’s grandson, Jason Carter, says he’s planning to run for the Georgia State Senate, for a seat representing DeKalb County. Lucky Georgia.
Oh, and by the way, we should worry about this, because just like Granddaddy, I’m sure “Jasuh’s” political ambitions don’t stop with the State Senate.
And he’s already slimily avoiding answering whether he agrees with Grandpappy’s anti-Israel, pro-HAMAS/pro-Hezbollah “work.”
On Wednesday night, the grandson of Jimmy Carter hosted a gathering in Decatur to launch his campaign for a state Senate seat that is not quite available yet.
Jason Carter, 34, is the first of the former president’s grandchildren to seek public office. . . .
The former president, who left his state Senate seat in 1966 to make a first run for governor, has endorsed his grandson’s venture. . . .
Jason Carter aims to replace David Adelman, who has been nominated by the Obama administration as ambassador to Singapore — but who has yet to be confirmed by the Senate.
Adelman is Jewish, as is a healthy portion of Senate District 42, a Democratic slice that covers downtown Decatur and western DeKalb County, including the Emory University complex.
In case you don’t follow the subtleties of foreign affairs, Jimmy Carter’s relationship with the pro-Israel faction of the world has been somewhat shaky these past few years.
The situation isn’t lost on Jason Carter, whose pro bono work has included a legal challenge to the Republican-backed law requiring voters to supply photo ID.
A mini-resume sent out by his campaign is topped by a citation for his “efforts to protect voting rights” — from the Anti-Defamation League.
Big whoop. Yeah, the ADL, which cares more about siding with the American left and anti-Semites therein than supporting Christian and conservative friends of Israel and the Jews.
“You and I both know that the Georgia Senate doesn’t set Middle East policy. And I don’t think anybody would want it to,” Jason Carter said in an interview that preceded his Wednesday kickoff.
Uh, no. What we know is that the Georgia Senate is a stepping stone for this Carter grandson cretin to help carry out his grandpa’s anti-Israel, pan-terrorist views, once he gets to Congress or whatever higher office he eventually seeks. And notice that Jasuh won’t say he disagrees with Jimmuh.
Time to nip this guy in the bud now, not when he becomes an unstoppable boulder rolling down the hill. And Capitol Hill.
Will be watching his campaign finance records to see how much Islamic money the dude gets.
