Mood: don't ask
Now Playing: gorebot of arabia
You know, if the Vice President of the United States hadn't shot a man this past weekend, what we'd all really be talking about is the disgusting speech that Al Gore gave to a bunch of Arabs in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia yesterday.
What is this anti-American dolt's constituency on this?
Former US vice-president Al Gore on Sunday said that the US government had committed ‘terrible abuses’ against Arabs living in America after 9/11 attacks, and that most Americans did not support such treatment.Why is this inexcusable nutbag saying such things overseas? Is there really some need for it? Al Gore is doing all he can to validate these people's views of us as a nation of Abu Ghraib prison guards. Why? Is it just the money?
Mr Gore said the Bush administration was playing into Al Qaeda’s hands by routinely blocking Saudi applications for US visas.Yes. Heaven forfend that we should see Saudi Arabia as a natural cradle of Islamofascism and that, whatever else we might say in the interest of not antagonizing our dealers, we could not simply allow the same old "visa express" to keep running unchecked. I lose absolutely no sleep over the great shame that a slightly more stringent immigration policy has visited upon all those innocent Saudi princes who can't just waltz into my country anymore.
So, again, what is the Gorebot's constituency on this?
“The thoughtless way in which visas are now handled, that is a mistake,” Mr Gore said at the Jeddah Economic Forum. “The worst thing we can possibly do is to cut off the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States.”Sure, but this is a departure from what many on both the Right and the Left say with respect to Saudi visas. But Gore is not likely to pique any curiosity in his party on this point since the vastly more important point is that he is overseas, speaking [truth to the power] of his own country. That's what gives these Leftists I read every day the courage to go on: the potential for their party's biggest names to take the side of Muslim extremists against the United States.
What a despicable fuck Al Gore is.
