Calling Al Gore a self-inflated nincompoop is like saying water is wet. Both are scientific facts.
The only difference between them is that there is an infinitesimally miniscule chance that Al Gore might actually develop the ability to use his brain someday. Unlike water’s wetness, his idiocy is not necessarily a constant, despite its mind numbing longevity.
However, it must be noted that the likelihood of him forever remaining an abject imbecile looks better and better every time he opens his mouth to say something as stupid as:
“I remember… when the Civil Rights revolution was unfolding, there were two things that really made an impression on me. My generation watched Bull Connor turning the hose on civil rights demonstrators and we went, ‘Whoa! How gross and evil is that?’ My generation asked old people, ‘Explain to me again why it is okay to discriminate against people because their skin color is different?’ And when they couldn’t really answer that question with integrity, the change really started.
“… There came a time when… racist comments would come up in the course of the conversation and in years past, they were just natural. Then there came a time when people would say, ‘Hey man, why do you talk that way? I mean, that is wrong. I don’t go for that so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.’ That happened in millions of conversations and slowly the conversation was won.”
In the same way, he says, “We have to win the conversation on climate.”
First of all, how out of touch is he, thinking that racism has been vanquished?
I remember learning firsthand about racism at the tender age of five or six, decades after the Civil Rights movement began. And I’ve been able to identify it for what it is ever since, which is good considering how racism still abounds over two decades later.
Al Gore is either exceedingly sheltered or purposefully moronic if he honestly thinks that the “conversation” on race is anywhere close to being dead. (One guess which one it is.)
Secondly, how offensive is he, likening his opposition to racists, probably the most nasty term to throw at anybody these days? How is it racist to want proof instead of hype, or to use our brains and abilities to ferret out all of the duplicity behind climate change “science” instead of nodding in zombie-like approval to whatever the Al Gore-approved media feeds us?
Maybe, it’s about time we start playing fire with fire and call Al Gore and his minions “Climate Alarmists,” “Environmental Falsifiers,” and the political version of racists.
At least when we called them nasty-sounding names like that, it’d be true.
