Yawn. The American news media defends the IDF and CIA every day, Al Jazeera will simply be defending Hamas and the FSA, if they pull any of that shiat at all. I see no problem with it.

Al sold his network to an Oil country, which he is supposed to hate.

The US produces 10 times more oil that Qatar, so that means that Al Gore was an even bigger hypocrite when he owned an American company.   If he wanted to put his money where his mouth is then he would have moved his company to a non-oil producing nation like Costa Rica, but he founded it where he lived so he is the most hypocritical hypocrite that ever hypocrited.

This proves that I understand what hypocrisy is.

This is a bit of a stretch, but sure, why not.

AJ is a mouthpiece for terrorists, this is fact.

Do please explain this one.

He tried to avoid capital gains taxes by getting the deal closed in time, right after going on TV and saying how the rich need to pay their fair share.

Setting aside his responsibility to Current's other stakeholders, I'll concede another 'Al Gore is a hypocrite' point.

But millions of American liberals worship the guy and he is the very thing he is supposed to hate.

Area man passionate opponent of what he imagines "millions of American liberals worship".

What made her change so quickly?

/Sudden political transitions are of interest to me

At first I thought it was my dad... he has always been a Conservative (but in the "don't tax me and leave me the hell alone" Republican, he can't stand what the Republican party is now). I thought after I moved out, he brainwashed her.
She got a big paycheck with a huge chunk of taxes taken out, and started blaming the Democrats (happened when Bush was in office).. then she turned on AM radio, listened to Rush, Glenn, Sean, Michael Berry (Houston tea party ass), took everything they said as the word of God... She always made a point of saying she had racist parents, and she broke that cycle of teaching with us, but, she has become such a xenophobe racist, it is unbearable. But, I understood her "I am overtaxed" argument, but the rest of it makes no sense to me at all. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this time next year the woman has a militia and an underground bunker.
My two brothers always attempt to impress dad is why they are Republicans.
I never blindly followed anything (including religion) and always questioned everything, which is probably why I never got my fathers approval on anything, but don't care.

This should just be the standard Fark signature. Original much?

huh?


Every single Fark liberal has the same story. Their parents are xenophobic conservative racists. But somehow you saw the light and are so much smarter. Same exact story as everyone else here but me. If all your childhoods were so sad, I guess that explains the completely warped view of the world most people here have.

Qatar is the richest nation in the world (GDP per capita), and almost all of it is because of oil (and other fossil fuels). They are quite different than the US. Once again, Al has spent so much time, won a Nobel peace prize, and decried evil people for using oil, and then to sell to an oil country like that is just beyond hippiecritical.

So which part gets your panties in a bunch: the oil/Al Gore connection or the part where Al Jazeera is a little girl beating sympathizer? I mean, if Al Gore is such an evil hypocrite in your mind, why the outrage here? You should expect him to do things like this.

I said parent, not parents... Dad is nothing like my mother... he is simply a Republican because he is sicked of being taxed and told what to do... He could give a shiat less about the other crap Republicans are trying to do (Pro-life, gay marriage, etc).. My mother was once a Democrat, we both voted for Bill Clinton, twice.. and she was going to vote for Al Gore, but changed her mind at the last moment (Bush being a "Texan" and all that) Bush was the first time she voted for a Republican.

Didn't say anything about my "sad" childhood...

He is such a hypocrite that I heard that he travels by car rather than by rickshaw.  If he really cared about fossil fuels then he would be screaming "DIDDY MAO" at his rickshaw boy to and from work every day.  That guy makes me want to PUKE!

No. He sold it to a network owned by Qatar, a state that derives practically all its funding through the sale of fossil fuels. So now Current TV works for evil climate change polluters.

I can also appreciate the tax increase aspect. People feel victimized (it's hard not too when money is taken from you) and in that realization of victimization they look for someone to provide them the seemingly simple answers that they want to hear... which opens them to be brainwashed. It's easy to support or deny something until it effects you personally and then it's easy to overcompensate in your attempt to deal with whatever is upsetting you.

My Mom (religious - not particularly political) is heavily influenced by my Dad (non-religious - highly fiscally conservative). My dad is frustrated in general with the country (seeing the Republicans as the only ones trying to be fiscally responsible) and my Mom repeats the crap my Dad says to her (which he is really saying to himself in order to convince himself he's still a Republican). I know she doesn't actually believe because I can easily convince her otherwise. But my dad is a different story, he likes to argue about facts which are hard to argue against in a specific context and it turns into a more of a priority situation where he generally feels something is way more important than it actually is which ends up blinding him from the big picture.

So you can point out ALL the other times with a nice quick link, found as easily as the one I found with ~15 seconds of Wikipedia searching, right? Because if I'm wrong I'd love to know it. If they are an evil organization that condones terrorism I'd love to know it. I don't like being ignorant. I like knowing the facts and being able to produce them, it makes me better at future arguments and makes me a more informed world citizen. I'm a pretty decent person. I donate time and money to an animal shelter, and I brought the homeless dude on the corner some turkey for thanksgiving. I love my wife still, after 11 years, despite her having a chronic illness that's a financial drain, and I pray every day. So if Al Jazeera truly is horrible like you say, I would love to know that so I can denounce them as well, but I'm gonna need more proof than the words you type. I'm gonna need some links that aren't Billy-Bob's blog.

See, if you can't produce links of AJ doing it "again, and again, and again" nobody here is going to believe you. It may or may not make a difference in your mind, but it will make a difference to every other person reading this thread.

My mother (once a even keeled, slightly liberal Democrat... turned into a Rush is Right, the world is against us, brown people are bad crazy tea party conservative almost overnight) was mad this morning about it, and tried to pick a fight with me over it.
"Al Gore sold his news channel to Al-Jazeera... wouldn't sell it to Glenn Beck, but sold it to the Arabs".

I see no issue with it, but apparently she believes it is run by the Taliban

AND:

Please link to any comment before this one where I said anything about Al Jazeera.

Thunderpipes: TIKIMAN87: He also doged being taxed on 100 million in income while saying we need to tax the rich.

Such a piece of scum.

He tried, word is the deal did not close in time, so he will owe 8.8 million more.

But ya, scumbag of the highest order. Publicly states he sold to them because they share his political views. Remember, this is the network that just threw a birthday party for an arab who killed a 4 year old Israeli girl with the butt of his rifle, after killing her father in front of her. Same network that just aired a documentary of Bin Laden showing what a great guy he was.


Just? The birthday party thing was in 2008, for a guy who'd been released after 29 years in Israeli prisons. And they apologized for it afterward and made a policy change. And their coverage of bin Laden enraged Al Qaeda.

When I was in Iraq, we considered them the best-sourced, least-biased Arabic news source. And here in DC, I watch AJE when I watch cable news (which isn't often; I prefer reading news to watching it). They're biased against Israel, obviously, which mainly comes out in their opinion programming, but their actual news coverage is dead-level straight, and competent. The best thing about them is that they cover the world in terms of natural disasters, politics, science, sports, etc., without any discernable slant. I just ignore their Israeli-Arab coverage (it's a very small slice of Al Jazeera English).

As for my man Al Gore, I don't see hypocrisy in taking advantage of current tax laws to save money while calling for higher taxes on your income bracket. He'd pay those higher taxes, too; he just doesn't want to be the sucker who pays them while everyone else in his bracket shirks.

fickenchucker: Al Gore is a dick and a hypocrite on many issues, but I will give him credit for being a great money-hungry capitalist.

Seriously, though, even assuming AJ is evil, our country is founded on freedom of speech. Insane thoughts are allowed to exist for a reason--in order to advertise the opposing opinion, and to clarify who the nuts are.

Nazis and Westboro Baptist Church are allowed to do their things because of this freedom, so what's the big deal with an Arabic news channel that we all know covers legitimate news as well as broadcasts terrorist insanity?


>>>>>>give him credit for being a great money-hungry capitalist.

He "makes" much of his money by manipulating deals where the government passes a law that forces people to buy stuff (carbon credits, for example) and he JUST happens to have an interest in a company that sells them. Sorry, not my definition of a capitalist. State-Capitalist or Corporate-Socialist, but not Capitalist.

>>>>>Seriously, though, even assuming AJ is evil, our country is founded on freedom of speech.

True.

>>>>>Insane thoughts are allowed to exist for a reason--in order to advertise the opposing opinion, and to clarify who the nuts are.

Not true. See your point about freedom of speech.

Soooooo Al Gore sells his company to another company whose operating income comes from the national government of a country that makes all its money from oil, locks up gays, represses women and exports terrorism

And Current thinks these beliefs are a closer match to what Gore, et. al. believe than Glen Beck.

How is this different than Rupert Murdoch fellating Chinese Communist leaders for the sake of getting lodgement in the Chinese media market?


For starters, Murdoch is not American or an ex Vice President of the United States....but both are very unethical, and while Murdoch fellates the Chinese Communist, Gore has in turn blown most of the Muslim Brotherhood - so in that way they are similar.

I turned on one of those TV gossip shows yesterday (ET? Inside Edition?), and they were OUTRAGED that Gore had sold his station to these anti-American sons of Satan. They said that Al Jazeera was "best known for airing footage of Osama bin Laden" back in the days when he made tapes and taunted us.

I guess it would have been so much better if no one ever saw those recordings. Maybe we wouldn't have the TSA today.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: mbillips: As for my man Al Gore, I don't see hypocrisy in taking advantage of current tax laws to save money while calling for higher taxes on your income bracket.

I agree with you. However; when Romney did this, he was portrayed as the most corrupt person in the world.
You see, it's only evil when persons of the opposing party take advantage of current tax laws.


When did Romney call for higher taxes on his bracket?

Romney never called for higher taxes on his bracket. He did the exact opposite of that.

I got to be honest, I've never watch Al Jazeera (the Arab version anyways) due to my inability to speak fluent Arabic, as is common with most Midwesterners.

However I have watched the English language version of it and found it to be a great source of journalism and not a source of terrorist propaganda. You do have to watch their coverage when they cover something with Israel because it definitely has a critical bent towards Israel which makes since since most of that region is critical towards Israel. Outside of  that, you will see stories you would never see on news stations like BBC and CNN International and you would NEVER see on "news" stations like Fox News, BBC, and MSNBC who are all too busy telling us who knocked up Kim Kardashian.

It definitely gives you a different perspective which scares the hivemind groupthink folks like those that consist of the modern day Conservative movement.

Which is why they obviously hate it.
