Moonbat Hero: Al Gore

Gore Decries Treatment of Arabs Post 9-11
By JIM KRANE, Associated Press Writer Mon Feb 13, 7:10 AM ET
Gore told the largely Saudi audience, many of them educated at U.S. universities, that Arabs in the United States had been "indiscriminately rounded up, often on minor charges of overstaying a visa or not having a green card in proper order, and held in conditions that were just unforgivable."

"Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it's wrong," Gore said. "I do want you to know that it does not represent the desires or wishes or feelings of the majority of the citizens of my country."
First he built the internet, then he won the 2000 Presidential election, and now he's the champion of terrorist rights in America. Well, one out of three ain't bad.

To describe in such terms the situation Arabs faced in the US in the dark days just after 9/11 demonstrates that Gore has little or no knowledge of Arab history, or history in general. Countless times over the 1400 years since Mohammed first came to power and his armies rolled out of Arabia the non-Muslim non-Arabic victims of the never-ending jihad have been indiscriminately rounded up and terribly abused. Those who adhere most closely to Mohammed's example, including the Wahabbis who bought Gore's mouth for a day, wish precisely to revive the glory when the good dhimmis paid their jizya in humiliation and the bad ones were "terribly abused" before being put to the sword.

So now Arabs in the US have been mistreated? Since when? Didn't Michael Moore make a pile of money claiming they got special treatment in the wake of 9/11? Try and take a bible or crucifix to Saudia Arabia. Try and be homosexual, female, or kafir in any of the lands the Arabs took by force. They'll show you "special treatment" Arabian style. Al Gore presumes to compare the US to this?

Should we prosecute sedition?

These are outrageous statements. And the silence from the left is deafening. The Democratic National Committee told me they had not released a statement regarding Gore's speech and had no plans to do so. The New York Times editorial board, the official outlet of the American left, wrote nary a word about the speech.

It is now considered bad form to criticize those who commit seditious acts against the United States. Challenging the patriotism of a traitor draws more ire than engaging in treasonable activities. Calling out those who undermine our nation creates more of a backlash than actually undermining our nation.
Yes, if there was anything to the snivelling leftist Chicken Little rhetoric about the Gitmo Gulag and Bush police state that is the real threat to the world Gore would already have been slapped in irons and tortured to death, wouldn't he? And joining him would be several dozen Hollywood and media morons who love to bash the US in front of foreign crowds. Oh brave patriots all. Fact is they suffer no ill treatment for their misguided opinions. Nor should they. The wonderful thing about free speech is that you're free to make a fool of yourself. Free to root for those who would snuff you and your freedoms out even as you undermine the system that has enriched you.

Cheney's hunting accident apparently deserves a week of media frenzy, but Al Gore's deliberate and unfair accusations against the US get virtually no press. It may be because everyone in the US realizes Gore is looney, unfortunately we cannot assume the Arab world realizes it. As for the silence of the left...

Fact-Checking the Right Wing’s Attack on Al Gore
Earlier this week, in an attempt to shift attention away from Vice President Cheney’s hunting accident, the right wing attacked former Vice President Al Gore for calling attention to the round-up of Arabs and Muslims that occurred in the days after 9/11. Labeling him “seditious,” Michelle Malkin said Gore “slandered” America for stating that Arabs had been “indiscriminately rounded up” after 9/11.
While the right has been quick to politicize Gore’s remarks, they haven’t had the time to do a fact-check. Gore was merely stating what has been reported and well-documented over the past few years:
Of course to simply quote a leftist is to "attack" him, and in this case the "fact check" only confirms that Gore exaggerated. There apparently was some talk by some people about rounding up Arabs and Muslims in the wake of 9/11. They never did, but a bunch of illegal aliens were deported. Oh my.
