DUmmie FUnnies 01-05-13 (DUmmies, KOmmies Mostly Fine With Al Gorezeera Hypocrisy)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | January 5, 2013 | DUmmies, KOmmies, & PJ-Comix

Posted on 01/05/2013 8:08:14 AM PST by PJ-Comix

Al Gore is a man of high character...He never sells out his public principles EXCEPT for money. So now that Al Gore has sold his no-rated Current TV to Al Jazeera which is owned by the oil sheikdom of Qatar do the DUmmies view their erstwhile hero as a hypocrite? Even worse, Al Gorezeera tried to pull off the sale before Jan. 1 when the Bush tax cuts expired in order to keep a bigger chunk of the half billion dollar sale for himself. Guess what? The DUmmies and KOmmies are mostly okay with the Gore hypocrisy as you can see in the DUmmie THREAD and this KOmmie THREAD. The thread titles gives us a hint that not all DUmmies and KOmmies are happy with the Al Jazeera sale but that sentiment is overwhelmed by the vast majority of them who bless the sacred ground that Al Gore treads on. So let us now watch the DUmmies and KOmmies rationalize the Al Gorezeera hypocrisy in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if the Gore daughters will now have to don burkhas, is in the [brackets]:

Al Gore, progressive leader one minute, wanting to cash in big time the next...

[Stated the DUmmie thread title with the awful truth...]

Al Gore Pushed for Sale Before Higher Taxes
Interesting tidbit from the New York Times on the sale of Current TV:


"Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1... But the deal was not signed until Wednesday."

[What a tragedy. Gore was forced against his wishes to pay his "fair share" of the taxes. And now to the DUmmies rushing to defend Al Gorezeera...]

AlJezeera's programming "coming out of the ME" is some damn fine journalism. I used to watch their broadcasts on either Link TV or Free Speech TV back when I had cable.

[Why do I have the FUnnie feeling that Al Jazeera will be the next stop for Big Ed Shultz when they wave the green cash in front of his flushed face?]

I'm just thinking of the field day Fox will have with this...and all the wing nuts who will insist the county is being taken over by Muslims. I wish Gore had waited to find another buyer...

[He had to sell to Al Jazeera. No other suckers were available.]

Do you think it was "socially irresponsible" for him to sell to Al Jazeera? They're a fine news organization. Much better reporting than F*cked News, CNN, and MSMBS.

[Tell us how great the Muslim Brotherhood is.]

Al Gore has done more for this planet than you will do for a lifetime

[Plus he has a bigger private jet than you do.]

You know what? It's still OK to make a profit and minimize taxes.

[Unless you are an EVIL Republican.]

Your f*cking title is pure misleading crap

[The thread title is too painfully true for you to endure.]

How about a group host stepping in and shutting this shit down.

[Delete this thread! Tombstone the author!]

Nobody should be criticized for using every possible legal avenue to minimize their taxes

[Unless you are an EVIL Republican.]

He is a private citizen who was f*cked out of the Presidency that he won. His family life has crumbled, he's getting old, he is no longer a public official and he hasn't been for some time now. He doesn't "owe" me a goddamn thing. If he wanted to try to hang on to more of his money, LEGALLY, I'm not going to carp at him for so doing.

[The DUmmie Cliff Notes version of Gore's bio capped off with a rationalization for his greed.]

In the end we're all hypocrites one way or another. Everybody wants to cash in. What matters is how much good we do to counter our innate greed.

[And now we leave the DUmmie hypocrites and join the KOmmie hypocrites...]

Current TV sold to Feudal Lord. Al Gore sells out. Anger???

[Not much anger but a lot of rationalization.]

I'm seriously, completely unsarcastically, SHOCKED that there's not more diaries, info, and anger that Al Gore et all sold Current TV to Al Jazeera, which is owned and run by monarchists in Qatar, most notably by Sheikh Hamad bin Thamer al-Thani, chairman of the board.

Nobody cares?

Damn Al, you just handed a golden goose to both Glenn Beck et all AND Naderites feeling punchy from the criticism of not voting for you in 2000. In addition, you just took away ANY integrity that your previous, current, and any future work had/has relative to climate change

Where's the anger? This is an epic sellout of monumental proportions, and sets back progressive TV in America and tons of legitimacy re: climate change work and publicity in the US.

[I knew there was an upside to this. And now to the rest of the KOmmies...]

I don't think handing them a progressive TV channel, especially when done by a man who has made his 2nd name as a fighter against global warming and pollution, is kosher in the LEAST bit.

[Selling out to Al Jazeera is definitely not kosher.]

I wanted to like Current - but, they suffered some serious programming / production problems let alone ANY real investigative reporting

[Didn't you like the Love Client #9 show?]

The al jazeera guy is a moderate. He is arab and powerful and because of which he has some friends that most find unsavory. but he's a moderate and is considered to be progressive among Muslim leaders. His 3rd wife, Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser al Missned has been an advocate for education and children's causes. She now chairs the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, estabished in 1995. The fox people are much much worse.

[What about his 2nd wife?]

The goose is the fact that Al Gore sold the network to Al Jazeera...completely justifying the idea pushed by the rightwing talkingheads for so long that Al was just in it for the $$$.

[Gee, how could we possibly come to that conclusion?]

Reports are that it was NOT sold to the highest bidder, completely negating that Gore was in it or the money.

[So who was the sucker who offered more than a half billion bucks?]

Current died the day Joel Hyatt became the boss.

[So it died on Day One.]

I recorded every episode of Countdown on Current, and I still have every one of them.

[A treasured memory of mental instability.]

If he takes the money and invests in a revolutionary program to explode the spread of green technology, I'll forgive him.

[You really think Al Gore is that much of a sucker? And how many carbon credits did you buy from him?]

The fact that Al Gore has been a champion of Global Warming issues and that who he sold it too makes the vast majority of his money contributing to global warming is the biggest thorn imo.

[Perhaps Qatar can buy carbon credits from him for absolution of their Big Oil sins.]

Everything I read, the mismanagement was totally due to Joel Hyatt, whom I find not to be an honest person.

[It was all Hiatt's fault. Meanwhile Gore resided on a white cloud glowing with his absolute moral purity.]

I wonder if Al Gore will share his gains with those at Current who will soon be unemployed.

[LOL! It's just not part of Gore's chakra to share his wealth.]

Right wing talk radio and TV are successful because there are four or five dominant figures who are such a reliable source of listeners that right wing talk is a financially safe medium. We don't really have that on the left, in large part because the talent pool is larger and more diverse. That makes for better content, but it's called "mass" media for a reason.

[Ah! So that's why Mario Cuomo and Jim Hightower failed.

But the deal was not signed until Wednesday."

I sense one of 2 things...

1. TurboTax Timmy will issue a waiver on this sale before he leaves; or,

2. Since The Goracle is a member of the 1%, he will be able to afford a CPA that will find an exemption, somewhere, in the tax code.

Either one will circle the DU-drain before anyone gets to report/comment.

We are now seeing the liberal "Idiocracy" in action. Since the last election I cannot believe the ignorant crap be presented as facts from these self-aggrandizing morons. My God! liberals are now officially dumber than Amoebas and this proves it.

I’m surprised the DUmmies didn’t come up with the argument that Al Gore really scored one for the cause by draining the oil sheiks of $500 million, repatriating their ill gotten gains to US soil and saddling them with Current TV, which even fewer people will watch now—thus using less electricity and reducing the carbon footprint of his beloved country.

Whew! I’m dizzy from going through those loops.

That was brilliant! If you ever follow the footsteps of Bob Dylan and sell out, my friend, I see a future as biographer for fallen Democrats.

It’s a true talent. I hope you only use it for good, and stick with satire. The irony, that prime skewering satire and straight biography for Democrats is indistinguishable, is not lost on me.

Now do one on Hillary. Please, please!!

Why are muslims (citizens of islam) allowed to own anything in this country? As it always has been, islam is the enemy of the reasonable, rational, sane world. Islam is the anti-christ because it denies the anointing of Jesus as Christ. Islam calls Jesus just a man. Meanwhile, they revere a barbaric, insane war lord as their standard for living.

Actually, Glen Beck tried to buy the station. But Gore's group nixed the deal because they didn't like Beck's politics. So they sold it to an anti-Israel hate group instead.

I thought it was called Mass Media because that’s where liberals go to get the daily sacrament from their little gods.

Algore is coming here to St. Louis, to the St. Louis County Library!

He's promoting his new book, "The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change." However, you need a bit more than "global change" to get in to have an audience with the Goracle. It costs $35 for a ticket and a "pre-signed" book:

Ticket packages are $35 (admits ONE and includes one pre-signed copy of "The Future") or $50 (admits TWO and includes one pre-signed copy of "The Future").

This will knock out the 99%, of course. Algore caters to the moneyed elite, Hollywood movie moguls, Arab sheiks, and such.

Wouldn't that be an anti-gay hate group? I mean, after all, aren't we supposed to be more understanding of liberal ideology?

Rather than taking the conservative viewpoint (and the single one most liberals would be happy to hear), shouldn't we accept their viewpoints, and identify the buyers properly? A buyer from a nation which still codifies laws making women property, forbids gays getting married, outlaws sodomy, and imprisons homosexuals just for being gay? That will imprison an illegal alien and hold them hostage until ransom is paid by the family? Who still jails debtors? Who still forbids travel to their country for people infected with AIDS? Who denies freedom of religion and will imprison someone who practices pagan beliefs? An economy based almost entirely upon retrieving, manufacturing and distributing the largest single source of atmospheric green house gasses?

Oh, no, is that one of those inconvenient truths? ;)

Actually, I think the funniest part about that whole St Louis thing is that after nearly a month of sales, and with just over a month to go, there’s still tickets available. It isn’t that it’s a huge venue or anything similar - I mean, really, a signed book and attendance to hear Al Gore, for just $50 for a couple, and they aren’t sold out yet.

That’s pathetic. Virtually anyone else who’s making half billion dollar deals would have sold out the venue in minutes. Poor misunderstood Al Gore.

Thank you for the plaudits, Rinnwald. I’m waiting for Hillary to come out of the closet, validating the Dems’ ties to the LGBT community and establishing her place in history as the gay wife of the first black president. (It’s tough to get all those special interest groups under the tent.)

It wouldn't be okay if a Republican did this. The Republican would be a greedy 1% who won't pay his fair share.

I'm a bit surprised by hypocritical they are being. Here's a guy who is a raging liberal, had a network full of liberals, and is a card carrying member of the Democrat party. He and his syncophants argue vociferously for higher taxes because the 1% aren't paying their fair share. The Bush tax cuts were evil because of that. Someone has to fund the schools and build the infrastructure, am I right? That's what they say. Yet here is his chance to pay his fair share, and he doesn't want to do it. Nope, he wants to pay the rate that he and his syncophants have argued was a horrible thing that harmed society in order to benefit the greedy rich. He doesn't want to pay the very tax increase he supported. The DUmmies see absolute nothing wrong with this at all and aren't calling him out for being greedy. Of course, they also aren't calling him out for arguing against global warming, saying oil is one of the causes, and selling it to a network run with oil money. They aren't calling him out for arguing for energy efficiency and downsizing while owning a private jet and maintaining a mansion.

The libs are such do as I say not as I do people. Don't they realize that's always what happens with the dear leaders in a "socialist paradise?"
