Profiles in Left-Wing Hypocrisy
By Anne Henderson
NEWS.com.au | September 19, 2006The activists who preach loudest against the so-called evils of modern democracies should be exposed.
In these secular times, celebrity-styled and self-appointed moral guardians have long replaced church leaders as the average person's guide to the higher moral ground. Al Gore and his message on climate change is but the latest.
In Australia to promote his film An Inconvenient Truth, Gore was given extremely soft interviews by Kerry O'Brien on The 7.30 Report, Andrew Denton on Enough Rope and Fran Kelly on Radio National.
All ABC interviewers accepted Gore's preaching without substantial query.
The problem for moral guardians is that often they take the high moral ground while simultaneously dealing in much of what they condemn. It's called double standards. And right now the world of commentary is full of them.
In his film, to be released in Australia tomorrow, the former US vice-president lectures at length on the need for all of us to change our lifestyles to save the planet.
We are sitting on a time bomb, he tells us, a planet heating to such an extent we have just 10 years before the apocalypse. We have a choice he says - "to bring our carbon emissions to zero". We must use renewable energy and clothes lines, drive hybrid cars and cut back on consumption.
I realize that to the left we are to do what we are told. This is just more BS from the people that find every reason under the sun to complain about what the President is doing. I love this money quote in the article it speaks volumns when you put it next to what the idiot Gore is doing.
We have a choice he says - "to bring our carbon emissions to zero". We must use renewable energy and clothes lines, drive hybrid cars and cut back on consumption.Now remember Gore is traveling around on a private jet, that consumes so much jet fuel that it would take me a year to put that much "green house gases" into the atmosphere. I am willing to bet that when Gore landed that he took a limo or a whole fleet of SUV's to his speech as well. The American public needs to wake up to this hypocrisy and vote every single Democrat out of office. Then and only then will America be able to defend its self and get off the foriegn oil tit.
In fact think about it, if we want to get off of oil but at every turn the Democrats and their lobbyists are fighting to keep us from drilling our own oil, from putting up wind generators where they will do the best good, not allow a nuclear plant to be built for better electricity. You know it is like the Democrats love to have us supporting those that support terrorism. I guess you can say the Democrats want to kill all Americans with the arm of Al-Qaeda.
