Do Us a Favor Jimmy: Stay in NoKo

Filed under: History,Politics — The Professor @ 1:21 pm

Apparently panicked that Barrack Obama may supplant him as the Worst Foreign Policy President in History, in an effort to show that he gives way to no man when it comes to foreign policy idiocy, Jimmy Carter dashed off to his home-away-from-home–Pyongyang–to accuse the United States and South Korea of human rights violations for refusing to provide food aid to North Korea.

No, seriously.

Any mention of the fact that North Korea is the most brutal, repressive dictatorship on the planet?  Surely you jest.  Any mention of the fact that the starvation in North Korea is the product of the regime’s destructive, inhumane policies full stop?  No: Carter merely “observe[d] the country’s food rationing system.”  A rationing system that is, by the way, a major element of the regime’s mechanism of political control by which the population is brutalized.

In other words, Jimmy Carter played Enabler-in-Chief to the world’s most reprobate regime, and traveled to that country to attack his own nation.  It used to be unpardonable for any prominent American politician, let alone an ex-president, to slander his own country from abroad.  To do so from Pyongyang is beyond unpardonable.

It is truly sobering to think that a man with such warped judgment–and indeed, arguably a man who is warped, period–was elected president of the United States.

  1. A great lesson in life: Be incorrigible enough and people will give you free food. Otherwise, this whole story is just so sickening, that I can’t even muster more than a one-line, smart ass comment.

  2. Both Jimmy and Obama deserve each other. One attacks his own country, the other apologizes for it. And where? In the countries with the worst dictatorships! Well, they are the worst presidents in our history!!! America, wake up!

  3. Kind of like Gorbachev toadying about with Russian oligarchs in London cocktail lounges and accusing Putin of being a dictator who isn’t in touch with the people.

  4. Yeah, S/O. Exactly the same. Exactly. Wow. Why didn’t I see the parallel?

  6. @ Vorobey & SWP, what else did you expect from someone like Sublime Oblivion?

    He is after all morally & intellectually deficient.
