LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Qatar Gore?
Question of the Day
We screamed when New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg favored the building of a Muslim community center two blocks from Ground Zero. It was a meaningless gesture by him but ugly and insulting to those murdered at the Twin Towers site on Sept. 11, 2001. Yet it was nothing compared to our former vice president, arrogant Al Gore, who is now selling his television station, Current TV, to Al-Jazeera (“Al-Jazeera buys Current TV from Al Gore,” Web, Jan. 2).
This is, of course, the same Al-Jazeera that was used as a public forum for Osama bin Laden’s videos and speeches. Certainly this makes Mr. Gore worse than Mr. Bloomberg. The mayor is just a good-hearted, self-loving liberal. Mr. Gore is a traitor making a deal with an active enemy. When no Jews or Christians are even allowed in some Middle Eastern countries, how is it that Mr. Gore invites Al-Jazeera to participate in our media? Mr. Gore refused to sell Current TV to conservative news figure Glenn Beck, as if Mr. Beck represents a greater threat than Islamists. If you can’t call a friend a friend, you can’t tell who your enemies are. Shame on Mr. Gore. Shame on the liberals who make him believe the dreadful things he does are moral instead of evil.
The fact that Mr. Gore is the king of global warming and that he is selling his station to the company of an oil-producing nation like Qatar just underscores his hypocrisy. When the political left tosses American values to the wind, we end up confused and siding with our enemies. We invite them to speak on television to us. Wouldn’t Tokyo Rose have wished for such a deal?
