The mob of politically correct hypocrites, corporate lackeys and East Coast Elites continues to swell, all determined to at least tar and feather Paula Deen if not outright hang her from the nearest tree, This is nothing more than mob violence in the age of Twitter.
However, there is one man of high principles and unquestionable moral integrity, who has dared to stand up and face down the mob. That man is former President Jimmy Carter. I can't possibly be more proud.
Carter forgives Deen and defends her in an interview given to CNN and posted below. Carter said,
"She was maybe excessively honest in saying that she had in the past, 30 years ago, used this terrible word. I think she has been punished, perhaps overly severely, for her honesty in admitting it and for the use of the word in the distant past. She's apologized profusely."
