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