Pat Sajak calls global warming advocates 'unpatriotic racists,' sparks Twitter backlash
Chicago Tribune ^ | May 20, 2014

Posted on 05/20/2014 9:19:44 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

“Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak sparked a social media backlash Tuesday after calling people concerned about climate change “unpatriotic racists.”

“I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night,” Sajak tweeted late Monday.

"The conservative game show host has a history of provoking controversy on his Twitter account. Sajak posted a tweet in April where he came out as heterosexual..."

That is called a joke. Dopey libs.

The cost of complying with unnecessary global warming rules and regulations will fall unfairly on minorities, women, and possibly the transgendered.

Global warming alarmists are not only racist, but sexist and homophobic.

Pat forgot to mention which minority group will be hit hardest.

He’s right. The biggest victims of artificially high energy costs are poor third world countries.

The issue is not “global warming”. The issue is the cause of global warming. As there may be some debate about whether there’s global warming, there’s no real true, scientific debate that “man is causing global warming”. The debate should revolve around the “cause” issue.

He got his start from Merv Griffin. He was very conservative. I wonder who owns the show now.

And by the way, if you make money in Hollywood you can do or say anything you want.

What you meant to say is she posed in a skimpy, sheer red nighty some time before she met Pat. You also meant to say that there is no such thing as redemption, right? And Pat is a slime bucket for seeing her as she was when he met her, and not holding her indiscretion against her. He obviously should have treated her as a leper and screamed “unclean, unclean” any time he was around her.

Uh, this is a perfect example of how liberals are utterly HUMORLESS.

Anyone who didn't "get" that Sajak was being tongue in cheek is a fool.

He was simply mocking the way liberals ALWAYS make every issue about race.

No surprise that the libtards don't see it, when Pat's tweet was right in front of their faces.

I met Pat, he was a good decent man. He is doomed now when the wave of hate falls upon him. He has broken with the approved line of thought. A single wrong twitter message can kill a career—lose jobs—its as bad as if he used the forbidden N-Word.

Jesus forgave the Halot and she was transformed into one of his devout folowers and—as some say—his loving wife. Pat was following a good pattern—let him without sin cast the first stone.

I’m pretty sure that the third world countries won’t need to follow any CO2 or whatever crap rules the U.N. comes up with. It is only for the industrialized “polluting” countries.

It isn’t about Global Warming, it is about world wide Global redistribution of wealth. (Global Wealth?)

It has only to do with the desire of elites to limit conspicuous consumption to themselves. Al Gore can live like a king, of course.

A well deserved denouncement, but I don’t quite get the attribution. Whatever.

A person ‘rescued’ by another who sees their hidden qualities often becomes a wonderful spouse, eternally grateful for the second chance. Amazing how somone’s slur against Sajak makes me admire him even more...

41 posts and no one has mentioned that Pat is a trained meteorologist - it’s how he used to make his living.

He’s right. It’s not about keeping the sea level down. it’s about keeping the third world down.
