As depth of betrayal sinks in, followers of Al Gore feel confused and misled
Irish Central ^ | January 11, 2013 | Ed Farnan

Posted on 01/12/2013 5:57:39 PM PST by george76

In the history of mankind there are countless instances of cult figures who have lead their followers to ruin and disillusionment. Names like Jim Jones, David Koresh, The Pied Piper, Bernie Madoff, Adolph Hitler, Charles Manson, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and a whole host of TV evangelists have done their damage.

It was easy for those outside and not sucked in by these hucksters to see the message they peddled defied logic, science and the laws of economics: Alchemy, master race, buy your way into heaven, getting something for nothing, all have that common thread.

...

Gore was making hundreds of millions from his “work” and many of the green movements/companies that get government funding, have Mr. Gore’s fingerprints on them somewhere.

But crushingly, Gores followers are starting to realize Mr. Gores feet are made of clay. He sold his failing "Current" cable-television station for about $500 million, which he personally gets 100 million, to the anti-American Al-Jazeera media company…which is owned by the fossil-fuel-rich royal family of Qatar.

Gore rushed to close the deal before the first of the year to avoid the very capital-gains tax hikes that he has advocated for others less well off.

In one fell swoop Mr. Gore has enhanced a fossil-fuel consortium, attempted to beat tax hikes he has advocated that others should pay and empowered an anti-American/anti-Semitic media conglomerate.

The blatant hypocrisy & betrayal to the cause has not been lost on his followers who have expressed shock and bewilderment that their titular leader of the “green movement” sold them out for 100 million pieces of silver.

I’m thinking we can soon add Glenn Beck to the list of cult leaders who led their followers to ruin and disillusionment. He’s jumping feet first into the world of crazy-land with his utopian society and media he wants to build.

Gore is a worthless POS and an embarrassment to Tennessee.
Thankfully, however, he did not carry Tennessee when he ran for POTUS.
We think of him, as we think of that scum that rest on the bottom of the sea.

By the way, his family farm is listed as one of the top polluters in Tennessee...a zinc mine.

They duped themselves.

Anyone with the ability to read, think for themselves and make a fact based judgement knew Gore was a modern day charlatan.

Al Gore proved P. T. Barnum’s old adage is still operational:

“There’s a sucker born every minute.”

Shouldn't Reno and the Clintons be wearing that one? And aren't those "followers" pretty much the same morons as those who "follow" Algor?

How could they feel betrayed by Algore? Occidental Petroleum, Tobacco Farming, a huge non-green wasteful mansion. He made his fortune on dirty air.
Tried to jump a massage therapist’s bones, goes everywhere in an SUV or a private jet, took illegal campaign money from China. Who ever trusted him in the first place?
lol

His nutty wife even tried to ban rock and roll!

This afternoon we were in the local Safeway buying stuff ~ and there we were in line behind a couple of medical types who I recognized to be Democrats.

First, we criticized Obamugabe. They winced. Then we expressed sympathy with Hillery who the folks at National Inquirer say has had her vision damaged by "the blood clot" ~ and whether that's her, or somebody else, it's something you don't want to have happen ~ watch out falls on concerete! You can bust a blood vessel behind your retina easier than you ever imagined ~ but a clot? Wow, that can leave you permanently and irreperably blind faster than snot.

They had quizzical looks on their faces with that, but they didn't say anything ~ which meant they were probably on sedatives, but then we got to the Algore. His betrayal of his acolytes of the weather goddess was pasted all over the outside of the usual magazines and tabloids at the cash register stand. We cackled hideously about how they were all suckers ~ and that's when the couple of Democrats ahead of us actually hung their heads in shame ~ the woman almost tipping over the 6 wine bottles she was purchasing.

The LEFT is despondent ~ if those two are good example ~ and it's time to strike!,

To the barricades ~ or whatever!

Yes, and there will be another P. T. Barnum arriving shortly to carry on the farce. The fools will follow along like blind mice.

“Thankfully, however, he did not carry Tennessee when he ran for POTUS.”

Remember, if Algore had won his home state he would have become President no matter the outcome in Florida.

So the guy who took Tobacco Subsidies on his land and campaigned as a tobacco farmer when he ran for Senate and THEN gave a weepy speech when running for VP about the evil of tobacco and his sister's death from cancer turned out to be phony????

I am shocked.... shocked I tell you.

Al was born in a DC hospital and, for the most part, grew up in the DC area. He is many things, but he is not a Tennessean... no matter how much he may claim that he is.

Algore's followers are confused huh? They didn't notice that he had a fortune in Occidental Oil stock back when he started his enviro-wacko shtick? "I drank a lot of iced tea so I must have been peeing when they talked about fund raising" wasn't a clue? "No controlling legal authority" wasn't a flashing neon 'I'm a crook' sign to them?

You liberals excuse these criminals for decades when it suits your ends then squeal like stuck pigs when they betray you. Moral relativism has consequences.

Yes, a very frightening thought.
The only problem for the future is from west Tennessee, where the blacks have taken over Memphis, my birth and childhood city.
Once great, the city has become a cesspool, taken over by the 60% black population.

Government of, by and for activists (excerpted)

University think tank’s lawsuit raises serious questions about the old and new EPA Ron Arnold

"Lisa Jackson leaves a scary legacy that time-bombs like IPI’s transportation fuel cap-and-trade scheme will greatly expand. EPA is already prepared to unleash its first wave of carbon dioxide regulations – to augment punitive taxes that some members of Congress want to impose on hydrocarbon use and carbon-dioxide emissions, and new treaty obligations that United Nations climate alarmists are devising to regulate energy use at the international level.

"Any one of these actions would send new shock waves through America’s still weak economy. If all three are imposed – especially in conjunction with Obamacare, just-passed tax hikes on small business job creators, and reams of other government regulations – the impacts will be devastating. EPA alone inflicts some $353 billion in annual regulatory burdens, notes a report by the Competitive Enterprise Institute."
