With his attack on the NRA, former VP Al Gore stands fully revealed as an American-hating nut

You all know how much I dislike and disrespect Al Gore.  With a recent attack against the NRA, he’s managed to drop even further in my estimation, something I didn’t think was possible.  The following post (which I wrote) originally appeared at Mr. Conservative:

*******************

Al Gore’s name has become synonymous with hypocrisy. He tells Americans they most freeze in the winter, bake in the summer, and drive microscopically small cars to afford $5/gallon gas. Meanwhile, he has a disproportionately huge carbon footprint. He owns numerous properties, all of which suck up more energy than the average American home, and he uses jets and SUVs to travel between his homes and his speaking gigs.

Recently, he refused to sell his failed “Current TV” cable station to Glenn Beck, citing incompatible values. When he eventually sold it (netting himself $100 million) the purchaser was Al Jazeera, an America-hating, anti-Semitic Qatari media empire that now has a foothold in America.

To Gore (or, as we here like to call him since that sale, “alGore”), the sale made perfect sense because Al Jazeera shares its values with this man who once stood a heartbeat away from the President and hoped to be elected to that office in his own right:

Current Media was built based on a few key goals: To give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling.

Al-Jazeera has the same goals and, like Current, believes that facts and truth lead to a better understanding of the world around us.

Gore couldn’t have made himself clearer: He has more in common with anti-American Al Jazeera than he does with all-American Glenn Beck.

Now Al Gore has taken yet another step to distance himself from American values, while still claiming to represent American interests. In a keynote speech he gave to the annual South By Southwest Conferences (SXSW), a gathering spot for stars in film, music, technology, and politics, Al Gore launched a direct attack on that most American of institutions – the NRA:

The NRA is a complete fraud because it is financed by the gun manufacturers.

Right. Got it. Al Gore’s plan is clear: pull the plug on the energy usage that makes American a dynamic, first-world country; disarm Americans by backing gun control and attacking the NRA, an organization that has been a bastion of individual rights since the end of the Civil War; and use Al Jazeera to indoctrinate Americans with its toxic blend of anti-American and anti-Semitic news.

    The NRA is funded by and represents gun owners.
    The National Shooting Sport Federation (NSSF) and the Sporting Arms and ammunitions Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) are supported by gun manufacturers.

    Ruger recently sent the NRA a check for $1million.  They made a big deal out of it by promising $1 out of every firearm sale to the NRA.
     
    BUT the NRA has about 4 million members and annual membership is about $35 per year.  Some easy math means they have an annual budget of about $140 million, just from membership dues.
     
    Al Gore can’t understand that much money coming from the rank and file just because of their convictions.

    Well, thanks, AlGore.  Probably a good thing the NRA isn’t the one running this fight for our enumerated rights.   Sure, they lend their organization and contacts.  Bravely stand the withering assault of the Left and media.  But the NRA membership is only 4% of gun owners in America.  (What Liberals Need to Understand About ‘Gun Guys’)  They’ve been slow to embrace many of the actions but are good about catching on.  See the shutting down of the Eastern Sportsman and Outdoor Show.  Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show: What Postponement of the U.S.’s Largest Gun Show Says About America – Forbes 
     
    I suspect AlGore and others can’t comprehend an organization where Americans come together for a common purpose but do not subsume themselves to some demigod leadership.  Where the purpose and force comes not from minions who grasp little of their purpose but from free men and women forming free associations for their common good.

    We sure dodged a bullet when Dubya edged out Gore for the presidency back in 2000.

    Can you imagine what it would have been like had he won? A Jew-hater who would have actively opposed the development of our fossil fuel resources? A tireless jet-setter who would have traveled the country ceaselessly campaigning on behalf of green companies and energy? A rabble rouser who would have seen GOP racism always and everywhere? A proponent of “lead-from-behind” diplomacy?

    Thank you, God, for sparing us from such a president!

    Of course, Charles, God got his revenge against our subsequent ingratitude by unveiling Obama on the American political scene.  They always say that, when God closes a door, he opens a window.  I say that, because Americans spat upon the mercifully closed door, God not only kept the window tightly shut, he gave the room termites.

    Thanks for the inspiration Book,  I think I shall use the term AlGorzeera from here on out :)

  • Charles Martel

    What MacG said.

  • Mike Devx

    Ditto, with Charles M and MacG.  “AlGorzeera” it is for me from here on.
     
    And yes, what a travesty.  Al Gore refuses to sell to Glenn Beck because Al Gore has issues with Beck’s values… and then he sells to Al-Jazeera.  For shame!
