Hysterical and yet disturbing video on Al Gore

Posted: August 30, 2011 at 4:51 am   /   by

The host hits the hypocrisy issue just fine. Al Gore is using the civil rights era to make his point, in spite of the fact that he never appears to question his own father’s vote against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

But the core, it seems to me, is Gore’s willingness to go there in the first place. Gore’s idea is that global warming “deniers” are like racists, and thus  “decent” Americans should try to change them through moral opprobrium. That assertion is disgusting on so many levels, where does one even begin?
