CNN’s hour-long infomercial for Al Gore’s climate racket may not have done much to help the network battle accusations of being purveyors of the fakest of fake news, but it was a welcome comedic respite in the midst of so many serious global crises we hear about daily.
As the carefully scripted “townhall” prompted Gore from one unchallenged claim to the next, all that seemed missing was for host Anderson Cooper to leap to his feet, rush his face into the camera and bellow his best imitation of the Sham-Wow guy, “But wait, there’s more!”
“FATHER” JOHN RAUSCH: Vice President Gore, as a priest living in Central Appalachia, I’ve come to realize that the climate crisis, I believe, is a crisis in spirituality. And I mean by spirituality a connectedness, a connectedness, a spiritual connectedness that we all are connected, we are connected to nature. We’re also connected to God. OK…So my question, Mr. Vice President, how can we influence people to see a spiritual connection in their consumer habits that they can see the consequences of their buying, those consequences have on people in Appalachia and also in other parts of God’s kingdom?
GORE: Well, thank you, Father…Yes, the habits of over-consumption and looking for happiness in just more things, that definitely is a part of the issue, for sure. Now I was taught in my church that the purpose of life is to glorify God and if we are heaping contempt on God’s creation, then we’re not living up to the duty that God is calling us to. And so this — the way we live our lives is definitely connected to this. It is — it’s not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual issue. And thank you for bringing that up.
You have got to be kidding me. “The way we live our lives is definitely connected to this?” And this airs the same day it becomes public knowledge to seemingly everyone but Anderson Cooper and the masterminds at CNN who facilitated this climate propaganda hour that Al Gore’s Nashville home devours 34 times more electricity than an average American (who we are constantly reminded uses far more electricity than the average citizen of the world).
To use Bernie Sanders-socialist terminology, something CNN should appreciate, that puts Al Gore in the top 1% of the top 1% of energy consumers in the world. The man spends over $20,000 a year to pay for coal-powered energy in his mansion. This is not to mention his private jets and caravan of suburban SUVs all paid for with the money foolish dupes have contributed to help him save the planet. To anyone with eyes and a rational mind, he is more of a shyster than Benny Hinn and Harold Camping could ever hope to be.
But Gore didn’t face a single skeptical question from the supposedly unbiased and objective Cooper. He wasn’t challenged on his startlingly wrong past predictions, the seemingly endless data manipulation scandals plaguing the Warmer movement, his own flagrant hypocrisy, or the tragic consequences so-called climate change legislation would have on the poor, the impoverished, and the third world.
With no shame Al Gore sits and demands climate accords and international agreements that would stunt the modernization and industrialization of third world countries. His efforts all but ensure the most destitute, hungry, and underprivileged of our world will see no relief from their misery – this while he enjoys his own luxury lifestyle.
If you intend to maintain any credibility as you prattle on about “social justice” for the poor, you’d be well advised to start by urging this hypocritical huckster to shut his yapper.
