Al Gore: Global Warming ‘Deniers’ Are Like Racists

From Breitbart:

Al Gore: Climate Change Deniers Like Racists, Homophobes, Alcoholics, Smokers

By Elizabeth Sheld | August 22, 2013

In an interview yesterday with Ezra Klein,  Al Gore compared the fight to have his "climate change" theories accepted to the civil rights, apartheid, and gay rights struggles:

"Well, I think the most important part of it is winning the conversation. I remember as a boy when the conversation on civil rights was won in the South. I remember a time when one of my friends made a racist joke and another said, hey man, we don’t go for that anymore. The same thing happened on apartheid. The same thing happened on the nuclear arms race with the freeze movement. The same thing happened in an earlier era with abolition. A few months ago, I saw an article about two gay men standing in line for pizza and some homophobe made an ugly comment about them holding hands and everyone else in line told them to shut up. We’re winning that conversation."

So Mr. Gore wants to make it politically unacceptable to question questionable science? What an enlightened and tolerant liberal.

Gore went on to explain that "climate change" has not caught on because "it’s like a family with an alcoholic father who flies into a rage every time a subject is mentioned and so everybody avoids the elephant in the room to keep the peace."

Doesn’t the ‘rage’ come from those who insist that there is man-made global warming? Aren’t they the eco-terrorists?

The good news is that the tide is turning, much like when "the late Frank Lautenburg was crazy for proposing a ban on smoking in airplanes, but he was rewarded politically and then politicians began falling all over themselves to do the same."

Fortunately, there is a group of secret Republicans who are uncomfortable with the "deniers" in their ranks. "A lot of Republicans have shared with me privately their growing discomfort with the statements of some of the deniers in their ranks. Even though they’re not yet willing to come back to advocate constructive policies, there is definitely movement."

Unfortunately, there are a lot of Republicans who are uncomfortable being Republicans.

By the way, does Mr. Gore still own that multi-million dollar estate on the beach in exclusive Santa Barbara? Or did Tipper get it in the divorce?

    A couple of points to make: First, Algore is recanting “stories” of his youth and the Civil Rights debate. Didn’t Algore Senior filibuster the Civil Rights Act? I’m sure he explained to Algore Junior his justification for doing so. To imply, by his anecdote, that he somehow supported civil rights for black people is simply wrong. Of course, the Ministry of Truth has obliterated this historical fact and re-written the history books so that those who opposed the Civil Rights Act now claim to be champions of the legislation.

    Second, 99% of domestic terrorists are environmental activists (the rest are muslims, surprise), according to FBI statistics. Algore talking about “rage” in the glowbull warming debate is more projection than anything else.

    What this ‘winning the conversation’ crap? That sounds like censorship to me. “I don’t like what you’re saying, even though it may be true, so shut up, and to enforce my censorship I’m going to get the government to make it illegal for you to talk that way.”

    Next: God is a racists, sexists, homphobe who only created the planet so he could enjoy killing all the women, brown and queer people.

    Sounds like Al needs another chakra release.
