Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Carter sued over his anti-Semitic book

Heh.

More than four years after its publication, five disgruntled readers have filed a class-action lawsuit against President Jimmy Carter and his publisher, Simon & Schuster, alleging that his 2006 book “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid” contained “numerous false and knowingly misleading statements intended to promote the author’s agenda of anti-Israel propaganda and to deceive the reading public instead of presenting accurate information as advertised.”

The suit accuses Carter and his publisher of violating New York consumer protection laws because they engaged in “deceptive acts in the course of conducting business” and alleges that they sought enrichment by promoting the book “as a work of non-fiction.”

In a press release, one of the attorneys, Nitsana Darshan-Leitner stated: “The lawsuit will expose all the falsehoods and misrepresentations in Carter’s book and prove that his hatred of Israel has led him to commit this fraud on the public. He is entitled to his opinions but deceptions and lies have no place in works of history.”

By the way, if you want an indication as to how the Washington comPost author feels about the merits of this lawsuit, look at this bit of editorializing in the “article”:

The five plaintiffs named in the lawsuit are seeking at least $5 million in compensation. The hard cover edition cost $27.

WTH does the cost of the book have to do with the lawsuit?  I don’t seem to recall the comPost reporting on the dope who spilled McDonalds coffee on herself in a similar manner: “A woman spilled hot coffee on herself in a McDonalds drive-thru window.  The woman now seeks $3 million in damages.  The coffee cost 49 cents.”  Nope…no liberal media bias!

Anyway, here’s hoping that Jimmy the Dhimmi’s anti-Semitism finally catches up to him.

  1. I can’t stand Carter, but what harm beyond the loss of $27, was there to the plaintive. The corts are full of these stupid suits costing us the tax payer Billions. This is just another reason fot tort reform.

  2. It is my sincere belief that when Jimmy 2 leaves office, hopefully in 2012, that we will be “blessed” with another 30-40 years of this same sort of anti-American/anti-Israel BS.

  5. Couldn’t have happened to a better guy. I find Anti-Semites to just as morally reprehensible as the KKK.

  6. So tell me again. Why do Jewish Americans vote Democrat?

  7. tnjack: Apparently being Liberal trumps common sense, as in defense of Israel. Been scratching my head over that for years.

  8. Because, like every other American who votes democrat, they are detached from any roots in moral behavior…they hope to get a couple hundred bucks shuffled to them in one way or another. They are Jewish when it suits them, but they are still self-focused, entitlement-driven, liberal-agenda-forwarding Americans like every other liberal – nothing more.

  9. Steve…the issue this time is an attempt to expose a liberal liar-for-hire (cool – that rhymes). There IS harm by deceiving the public for a profit…it is LONG over due that people who claim to represent fact be held accountable for intentionally deceiving the masses for profit. Al Gore and Michael Moore oughtta be next. The damage done is generational; if history is perverted by the likes of these, our children’s children will be misled severely.
