Most Democrats from the Southern states opposed the bill and led an unsuccessful 83-day filibuster, including Senators Albert Gore, Sr. (D-TN), J. William Fulbright (D-AR), and Robert Byrd (D-WV), who personally filibustered for 14 hours straight.

It’s official. I can no longer compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics. I no longer have amateur status as a Fire-Breathing Racist. Just how sick a puppy am I? According to Al Gore, Jr.; I, personally have given the Earth a fever! We sample yet another deracinated Al Gore rant that not even I am pompous enough to successfully invent.
“My generation watched Bull Connor turning the hose on civil rights demonstrators and we went, ‘Whoa! How gross and evil is that?’ My generation asked old people, ‘Explain to me again why it is okay to discriminate against people because their skin color is different?’ And when they couldn’t really answer that question with integrity, the change really started.”
Al Gore apparently forgot to ask that inconvenient question around the dinner table. Upholding the proud and sacred traditions of the Alabama Democratic Party; Bull Conner went full-metal jack-ass on Martin Luther King, Jr, and the Birmingham civil rights marchers on May 3rd 1963. One year later, Al Gore’s dad helped lead Southern Democrats in a filibuster against The Civil Rights Act of 1964. Perhaps Al Gore’s generation “won the conversation” with people other than ones that mailed them checks to live off of every month.
Just how gross and evil is that? Al Gore is comparing those nasty AGW Denialists to the profoundly detestable people who Al Gore’s father filibustered on behalf of in 1964. Perhaps people who live in glass houses, with heated, indoor swimming pools, need to stop throwing rocks.
But no, Al Gore can no longer help himself. He rages against over-population. Yet Al and Tipper Gore have four children themselves. He rages against E-VIL corporations.Yet, he, himself has earned millions by selling carbon indulgences, oops, I mean offsets through Generation Investment Management.
And it gets progressively worse for the Warmists. The simple, linear models, predicting climate Armageddon, totally fail to capture the complexity of the physical world. These models are no more accurate than people who read The Gospel of Luke, and claim they can mathematically calculate the physical age of the world from Jesus’ genealogy.
This reduces Al Gore to a mere, hypocritical bully. He is now lumping a group of people who disagree with a scientific hypothesis in with Mr. AYAK and Mr. AKIA from Freakonomics fame*. If he can’t fight on logical grounds, he has to wage his war on the grounds of false morality.
Thus, it is absolutely perfect symbolism that he wraps himself in the mantle of a bill his father, Sen Al Gore, Sr. of Tennessee helped filibuster for 83 straight days. It is symbolic of the completely amoral duplicity that has marked the star-crossed career of this dishonest, and mentally imbalanced man.
*- Re: the Freakonomics reference. AYAK and AKIA were a secret KKK challenge and password combination. AYAK = Are You a Klansman? AKIA = A Klansman I Am...
