Beck: Calling out racism is like using children as suicide bombers.

Yesterday, President Jimmy Carter caused controversy when he suggested that Rep. Joe Wilsons (R-SC) recent outburst during President Obamas health care address and other attacks against Obama may be motivated by racism. Today, Glenn Beck suggested on his Fox News show that Carters claims are equivalent to the terrorist tactic of strapping bombs to children and portrayed Carter as an ideological ally of Osama bin Laden:

BECK: Nobody is saying were blowing children up or anything like the Taliban. But this is the same kind of tactic being used now in America. You cant get your agenda, so you unleash the hounds and point the fingers, and everybody is a racist.

Watch it:

3. Am I hearing this right? Beck refers to Jimmy Carter and terrorists using same tactics?
This is the second time that Beck tries to disgrace a President of the United States! This guy needs to be off the air and, if I could, have the good people of Washington State draw up a referendum and vote on revoking his Washington State citizenship!
