Jimmy Carter (1979)

1979 Dry Bones cartoon -Jimmy Carter thought that the terrorist PLO was like America's Civil Rights Movement.
Back in 1979, Jimmy Carter actually did say that the PLO terrorists were like America's Civil Rights Movement. Time magazine called it a "Slippery Comparison".

Perhaps as a white southerner Jimmy felt guilt at the history of his culture's oppression of black people. Maybe these feelings led him to the perverse version of reality which he held then and is now trying to sell us again.

Perhaps I'm being too naive.

Maybe it was, and is, all about "Arab money".
