Dennis Prager: Jimmy Carter: 'Compassion for Mordor': "'We who love peace,' the Nobel Peace Prize laureate continued, 'have to initiate a campaign to jolt people back to our view of the world. Let's be clear about the dangers. What if young people start identifying George W. Bush with Aragorn or Gandalf, and Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden with Saruman? Even worse, impressionable moviegoers might identify the American war against Iraq and so-called 'Islamic terror' with the war against the Orcs and Mordor.'"

Hey, Jimmy, wake up. I know this is a difficult concept, but there is real evil in the world. Do you think that you and your family will escape if Osama had his way? Do you think the Taliban would have hesitated to shoot your family on the soccer field? In the sixties and seventies the devotees of the Lord of the Rings identified Nixon and America with the Black Lord and Mordor. You didn't object then, did you? 9/11 woke America up and revealed that you and your buddies are emperors with no clothes.
