In his new book, “The Future,” Al Gore praised Occupy Wall Street and Al Jazeera, the network that bought his failing Current TV,while bashing democracy, capitalism and conservatives.
“Capitalism, like democracy, must also be reformed,” Gore wrote in his book.
Mike Ciandella wrote at Newsbusters:
According to news reports, Gore made about $100 million from the roughly $500 million deal selling his cable channel to Al Jazeera, and has been defending that decision ever since. In “The Future,” he referred to the terror-friendly network as “feisty and relatively independent,” and praised their involvement in helping to mobilize the Arab Spring. Al Jazeera, however, is a purveyor of propaganda, consistently offering the anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-Islamist line at a time when America has been threatened by Islamic terrorists and has gone to war against them.
Gore also adopted “Occupy” talking points when he wrote that “the operations of democratic capitalism in its current form are producing unfair and intolerable results,” including “suffocating control of policy decisions by elites, the ever increasing inequalities of income and the growing concentrations of wealth, and the paralysis of any efforts at reform.”
Perhaps Gore would prefer a form of communism, where the state dictates everything.
“Within the United States, it is a measure of how distorted the ‘conversation of democracy’ has become that in the aftermath of the economic catastrophe, the most significant ‘populist’ reaction in the U.S. political system was not a progressive demand for protective regulations to prevent a recurrence of what had just happened, but instead a right-wing faux-populist demand by the Tea Party for less government regulation,” he wrote.
So in his view, democracy as it is practiced in the U.S., capitalism and small government that lives within its means and abides by the Constitution are the problem.
He also targeted those who oppose gun control and somehow managed to tie that to the environment, his favorite topic.
“Those primarily interested in opposing any form of gun regulation agree to support the position of oil and coal companies opposed to reduce global warming pollution. Anti-abortion activists agree to support large banks in their opposition to new financial regulations,” wrote the man who made millions after selling his network to a state that makes its money from oil.
It’s quite clear that Gore’s idea of perfection has more in common with the former Soviet Union than the founding fathers.
It’s also clear that Gore is a hypocrite without a clue.
