Al Gore spoke at the event and berated Americans for intolerance toward the Muslim population. Would there have been an anti-aircraft gun nearby, Gore may have followed through with the entire Jane Fonda routine.
“Big deal, so what”, you may say. Al lost it long ago and now spends his evenings holding “cabinet meetings” with an Irish Setter, two potted plants, and a bottle of Old Spice, right?
Perhaps, but what’s more interesting is what’s not being reported at any great length in the MSM about the event attended by Gore.
At the end of the article, read who sponsored the event. One of those sponsors was the Bin Laden Group.
Yes, yes, the Bin Laden family has disowned and denounced Osama. Still, how big would the headline be on the front page of the New York Times if a Republican spoke at an event sponsored by, and was perhaps personally paid by, the family of Osama Bin Laden?
This type of America-bashing speech is nothing new to Gore. In 2004, in a speech at New York University, Gore spoke of Abu Ghraib and said, “Where do we go to get our good name back”, while calling for the resignations of Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Stephen Cambone, Condoleezza Rice and George Tenet, stopping just short of asking George Bush to give himself a public spanking and condemning the fall lineup on the WB.
Some are saying that Gore’s speeches give “aid and comfort to the enemy.” Do they? I don’t think so. At most, all that is accomplished by speeches such as the one Gore made in Saudi Arabia is that the world is further informed about what makes America great Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the freedom to be a total loon.
Well, that and the media’s ability to look the other way and kill what would, for the “right” people, be a provacative front page headline.
