RUSH: No, seriously, folks, stop and think of this. Here's Algore, who has become extremely wealthy perpetuating and personifying a hoax that is in large part based on the dangers of oil. Oil and fossil fuels are destroying the climate. Our use of these fuels is destroying the climate, is creating global warming, and there's nothing good about that in Algore's view. Yet who does he accept money from?
He sells his network for $500 million to the grand pooh-bahs of Qatar, which only have that money to give or to buy it with because of oil. You could say, "Well, he's taken them to the cleaners, Rush! He sold them something that's not worth anything." No, no. That's not what's happened. That is not what happened. Algore has accepted money from an industry, a nation state and industry that he tells everybody else needs to be shut down. And what did he sell them?
He sold them a propaganda arm!
He sold them a cable network that does reach 70% or 80% of the eyeballs in this country. So he took oil money. Anybody think that that's not on the up and up? Why would Algore want to have anything to do with Big Oil? He hates 'em. They're the reason that we are threatened. They are the reason that we're endangered. They're the ones that have been lying to us. They've been the polluters! I think the reason they bought him is because he's obviously good at spreading propaganda.
Al Jazeera obviously has a worldview. Al Jazeera, like any other news network, would love to be able to persuade everybody that watches it to agree with their worldview. Their worldview is not one friendly to us as a country rooted in Western Civilization. Al Jazeera doesn't have much to say about Western Civilization that's good. And yet they partner with Algore, who supposedly hates oil.
So he gets even richer, gives them a propaganda arm, and remains involved perhaps as a consultant. And then Jennifer Granholm? What's funny about this staff meeting is Jennifer Granholm asked about severance packages for people like her who are quitting. And Joel Hyatt, Algore's partner, told her to shut up. "We're not talking about the at this meeting! Bring it up later." Total, total, disrespect.
