It’s easy to think of the former President as a failed liberal, or a doddering old fool who harmlessly builds homes for people in need.

But Carter is an accomplished liar – just as the Clintons are.

And he is fully invested in the liberal ideology of the Obama Social Justice agenda.

You have to understand that the Black Lives Matters movement is not built on anything resembling truth. But President Carter doesn’t see it that way. Carter is talking about a resurgence of racism based on three things.

One is the way conservatives treat our First Black President. Second is that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party – “…tapping a waiting reservoir of inherent racism.” Carter is also alarmed by “white police attacks on innocent blacks.”

In Carter World, Republicans are nothing but repressed racists, now set free by Donald Trump.

Let’s take Carter’s lies one at a time.

JIMMY CARTER LIE #1: The Right hates Obama because he’s black.

This is the Chris Matthews theory as well. It holds that no matter what Obama does, conservatives will hate him because of his race. When you think about it, what else can liberals say about their guy? He’s gotten a lot of things done – the Stimulus, Cash for Clunkers, the Russian Reset, the Syrian Red Line, the Iranian Nuclear Deal, using the IRS to attack political enemies, nonbinding climate change deals, the Solyndra renewable energy deal, and (of course) Obamacare. Not one of these things has worked out very well.

Besides, in order to believe that conservatives hate black people, you’d have to explain why they once loved Alan Keyes, J.C. Watts, Ward Connerly, and Ken Hamblen, and in today’s political world they adore Justice Clarence Thomas, Ben Carson, Allen West, Condoleezza Rice, Larry Elder, Mia Love, Tim Scott – and so many more. Honestly, what the Left says about black conservatives is far more vile than anything you hear about Obama.

JIMMY CARTER LIE #2: Donald Trump has brought out the repressed racism of conservatives.

Trump HAS brought out some bad feelings within certain communities. It has zero to do with racism. Part of it is that conservatives are sick and tired of be labeled as racists. We’re tired of political correctness that leads to such things as LIE #1. Many Americans see open borders and the invasion of illegal aliens as a direct threat to our culture and our common language. We’ve seen the resistance to assimilation – which is the entire basis of America as a Melting Pot – and we don’t like it. We see Islamic terrorism in places like Boston, Fort Hood, and San Bernardino and we are tired of being called racist for pointing it out.

The Trump phenomenon is all about killing off political correctness and injecting some common sense and logic back into politics.

JIMMY CARTER LIE #3: Racist white policemen are attacking innocent blacks.

Carter may believe this, but if he does, he’s a bigger fool that I thought. We’ve had several incidents – all reported heavily by the left-wing media. Some of the incidents have merit (Cleveland, Long island) and some don’t (Ferguson, Baltimore). But in a country of 320,000,000 people these incidents are somewhat rare. They seem more frequent because outlets like the New York Times and CNN blow them up in importance, and likely do not report on similar incidents in which the suspect is white. In many cases, the suspects are not nice people. Michael Brown (Ferguson) was a street thug who had just robbed a convenience store and was high on marijuana. Freddy Gray (Baltimore) had been involved in twenty criminal cases. Police face these kinds of criminals every day, and in general, they do a very good job.

President Carter is also ignoring “The Ferguson Effect.” This is the name given to the “de-policing” that has taken place in big cities when the police are afraid to be proactive because they fear they will be called racists. This means criminals and street thugs can commit crimes at will without fear of police interference. Michael Barone has written about this, and so has Heather McDonald in the Wall Street Journal.

Protesters vandalize a police vehicle outside of the Ferguson city hall in Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, in Ferguson, Mo. Since then, there has been an upsurge in violent crime, the so-called Ferguson Effect, and African Americans have been victimized most of all, writes Michael Barone. (Photo: AP)

Conclusion: Jimmy Carter is either very stupid or he is a liar.

I’m afraid he’s both.

Carter is eaten up with left-wing ideology and political correctness – the very things that Trump appears to be the antidote for. Pressing ahead, Carter is planning a big, left-wing confab in Atlanta this fall as part of his New Baptist Covenant. He’s going to bring together Baptists of all races to address issues of race and inequality.

Unless Carter has a Road to Damascus experience and starts telling the truth, this meeting will be a total waste of time.
