Stuart Varney goes off on the “gross hypocrisy” of Al Gore

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

One of Glenn’s favorite cable news commentators had a few strong words for Al Gore earlier today. Stuart Varney found the decision the former Vice President to avoid the coming tax increase by rushing the sale of Current before the end of the year to be nothing short of “gross hypocrisy”.

Varney, a man who left England for America to escape to rise in socialism, is clearly less than pleased with the current direction of America. He’s even less pleased when the individuals pushing us further and further down this road doing everything they can to avoid the repercussions of their policies.

Yesterday, along with the news of Gore selling Current to Al Jazeera and reaping a $100 million dollar payday in the process, was another detail about the deal. Al “pay your fair share” Gore rushed the deal so that it would be finalized before the end of 2012 in an effort to avoid to coming tax increase on the wealthy.

So while Gore preaches things like this…

“The single most popular proposal we had was to reduce taxes on working people and lift the higher rate.  Let’s give an incentive to work and let’s ask the most fortunate in our society, including me and you to do our fair share. And we ought to do that again.”

…his actions speak a little louder.

Here’s Varney’s epic reaction:

“They ought to do their fair share.  Well, as it turns out, the liberal multimillionaire mogul tried to push to complete a deal to sell his Current TV channel to Al‑Jazeera before any of the new tax hikes would affect his big payday. So sir, let’s get this straight.  Al Gore wanted to unload Current television during the George Bush era tax rates before the Obama tax rates that harken back to the Clinton/Gore tax rates went into effect. 

I don’t want to spoil the mood on the couch but you know, let’s call it for what it is.  That is gross hypocrisy.  Here’s Al Gore extremely wealthy, ultra leftist.  He’s scrambling to book a profit on the sale of his TV network last year, when the tax rates are low.  He will do anything to avoid selling it this year, as exactly that’s what happened, when he has to pay a higher tax rate.  That is hypocrisy.”

Stuart Varney went on to say:

“How do you feel about guys who say, hey, you, you’ve got to pay more money in tax.  I think it’s a good thing.  We should all share the sacrifice.  Oh, but I, I will do my utmost to avoid the tax that I’m forcing on you.”

But that’s not all he was upset about. Varney continued his brutal takedown of Gore onto the issue of to whom he sold his television network.

“Al Gore sells this Current TV to Al‑Jazeera, which is owned by the oil sheikdom of Qatar, right?  So ‘Big Al’ who hates Big Oil is actually making a ton of money by selling it to Big Oil.  Is that not ‑‑ is that not hypocrisy?”

One of the other commentators Varney was speaking with noted the other interesting note about the deal with Al Jazeera — Gore had other options, like TheBlaze.

“Al says to Glenn Beck — Glenn Beck wants to buy this TV network — So Al says, ‘no, we’re very sensitive to the networks not aligned with our point of view.’  In other words, get lost, Glenn Beck.  But okay, Big Oil, the sheikdom of Qatar.”

And the biggest disgrace of that situation to Varney is, of course, that Gore is a former Vice President of the Unite States of America who just sold is news network to an anti-American news channel called Al-Jazeera.

Watch the exchange here:

“Isn’t that incredible — those three points?” Glenn asked after hearing the audio.

He added that it’s amazing no one has really gone after Gore for his hypocrisy all of these years. Glenn remembered how Gore was the darling of the media during his time at CNN.

“Everyone loved him because he was Mr. Global Warming,” Glenn recalled.

Somehow the former Vice President has managed to win an Academy Award, the Nobel Peace Prize, a Grammy — just about every possible award you can imagine.

“He’s a total joke,” Glenn remarked. He recalled meeting The Simpson’s Harry Shearer.

“He’s brilliant, very funny.  But very, very left,” Glenn described him. “We don’t have any of the same views. I shouldn’t say that — I bet we would surprise each other on how many decency points we have in common.  But politically speaking, we don’t share a lot in common.”

While attending one of Gore’s ‘Live Earth’ speaking events, Shearer woke up to what a fraud Gore really is.

“He said, ‘I was standing there on this huge platform with all of these trucks and these jets flying into it and everything else,’ and he said, ‘It dawned on me sitting backstage, I’m like, this is bogus. This is bogus. If these people believed any of this, we wouldn’t be doing any of this.’ And I mean, he was honest about it.  I mean, at least people like Harry Shearer, you know, is honest about it.”

Well, Harry Shearer may be honest, but one thing’s for sure, Al Gore doesn’t have an honest bone in him.

    So Al Gore, former American VP, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and overall con-artist and liar and thief showed his true colors with the selling of Current TV to Al Jazeera.

    He favored blood-money taken from a terrorist-friendly group, and sought to ensure the deal was done so he would not have to pay the massive new Obama-era tax rates. In addition he sold it to Al-Jazeera due to them having similar ideological beliefs…

    So we have a former VP of America who not only is anti-american, he is a traitor as well in aiding  those who are avowed enemies of our nation. 

    Typical.

    Al Gore is among the worst of hypocrites, he lives true to that name in seeking to get people to do as he says and not as he does. Figures.

    This is just another old way of paying off pols who previously did you favors.  The Muslims buy a worthless asset with only about 40,000 viewers for 100 Million.  Another way is to pay you millions for a speech that takes 40 minutes after you leave office.  It sends the signal to all the wannabes, you too can cash in for previous favors. Al and the other NAFTA group.

    Capitalism for folks like Al, but socialism for everyone else.  The fatcat wealthy of DC(District of Corruption).

    That’s because Big Al [the Polar Bears are Floating Away] Gore is alone smart enough to manage his own wealth. This is always the way with the socialist elite. They will lead the inferior masses. LOL

    Can you imagine if Gore or even “that man” was president during 9/11? “We’re really sorry we built such ostentatious towers symbolizing corporate greed and wealth”. What a bunch of hypocrites.

    They’ve got hypocrisy down to a science.

    535 votes away in 2000 and 9 mos. away from 9/11/01. This #BigDumbDope algore made a complete ass of himself, holding off the election in 2000 for 2 months. He is the sleaziest, well, these days there so many sleaze bags to choose from, who can pick just one. Algore, the #BigDumbDope, was going to sue any networks here that won’t take his Terrorist tv network, for being islamophobes (dumb word) so I called algore an #Americanophobe and a #Christianophobe and last but not least, a #BIGOT. They are the real bigots. They call us bigots because they think  all we have to do all day long is sit around and think up a new ‘hate’ word for whatever they are. No, we have to work. He gets to suck off our work. So he gets all those $billions for Greencrap cuz we are oil hogs and we must start riding our bikes. It’s okay for algore to fly around in his gas guzzling private jet because ‘he buys carbon offsets’. Good, Algore! Do carbon offsets then go to a tree store, buy a tree and plant the tree? How damn sick. He has raped and raped us over. Algore, the #BIGOT Hitlery, Billery and ‘that guy’ are so rich off our backs, they’ll never be able to spend it all. It’s quite disgusting. I’ve worked my whole damn life, paying their FAKE SOC. SEC. but it’s never been there. We are not rich, we don’t bother anyone else, mind our business, but by God, when this big fat slug #BIGOT starts minding MY business, he can go, well, you know.

  • http://twitter.com/cmdorsey cmdorsey

    What really burns me is all the lectures and brainwashing of our kids, all the $Billions WE taxpayers spend on greenBS.  Cuz Algore says oil is dirty and we need to start riding bikes to get off that bad, bad, bad oil. So he then goes to oil rich Jizzera and that money is blood money. It’s money from all that dirty oil. I can’t stand this FREAKshow

  • http://twitter.com/cmdorsey cmdorsey

    AlGore is an #Americanophobe and a #Christianophobe and a BIGOT. He was threatening any cable companies that if they didn’t allow his pet project, Terrorist TV to be on their channel list, they would get sued for being islamophobes. He/They are the bigots and I’m gonna give it right back to them. Works both ways accept I’M NOT A BIGOT. I don’t like to have to run around all day with a helmet and iron belt around my neck so I don’t get chopped up – so in that case ONLY, call me a bigot.

    Where is the FCC and the FTC and the other regulatory agencies involved in selling US property to foreign entities on this deal? I am surprised that such an openly hostile oganization such as Al Jazeera is allowed to enter into this transaction in the first place. There has to be something not quite Kosher about this. 

    I never watched CurrentTV, and I plan to continue that regardless of the name. Al Jazeera and Al Qaeda are one in the same.

  • BentGhazi

    His involvement and efforts to finalize the deal before Jan 1, 2013 were the focal points. He wanted to avoid the new higher capital gains tax after shooting his mouth off about rich people like him paying their “fair share”. All of a sudden he’s in a hurry to avoid paying his ”fair share”, and he got caught by the New York Times. 

    Poetic Justice.

  • BentGhazi

    Maybe we can get them interested in impeaching him now…

    The won’t call the station Al Jazeera, they will have some snappy name such as American Patriots for Truth network or Patriots Network so they can spew their hatred for The US and Libtards will watch it.

  • SoThere

    You can bet that there would be a big investigation into the sale by the FCC if Glenn Beck bought the network, but Hillary Clinton loves Al Jazeera, she said it’s the only place to get the “real news” and she watches it all the time. It’s her favorite.

    My dad, a WWII veteran who carried the ground invasion plans for Honshu, who has seen many administrations, said after O was elected that “he’s bitten off more than he can chew”. I think this will come to pass, especially when the 20+ taxes for that health care monstrosity kick in. I would pay money to sit in the front row if he’s impeached. There’s certainly enough grounds for it, more than any other president. Our Founding Fathers would be full of repulsion and shame.

    Hypocricy and corruption are rampant in all of the US. We can easily pick on any subject and condemn people for being corrupt. I doubt that there are many people who have never done similar things when the opportuniy arose. Let the man without sin cast the first stone.

    For all the liberal twit-headed morons;  If the Constitution is an antiquated document that no longer reflects social norms.  Let me assert that the war amongst the states is also an antiquated event.  Every city,county,and state should be allowed self determination to be represented by their own will.  There should no longer be a gang from the “District of Corruption” dictating from the elitist Ivory Tower, what we in the streets and countryside must do.  If the constitution is subject to interpretation, then so is the idea of separation.  We must embrace modern times and realize that men and women are not held agianst their will by marriage and neither should we be enslaved by an abusive spouse.

    Each time I see people like Al Gore it only assures me of the hypocrisy of these left wing liberals. It’s okau to screw you as long as it doesn’t affect them. They are all so full of crap and I for one am sick & tired of people like him.  How anti SAmerican can one guy get.  If anyone thinks that this is okay they are as idiotic as he is,  as for Global Warming , take a hike. He jets around with his big oil jet & then tells eveeryone about the the use of oil and what it is doing to this earth. Give me a break, get rid of this slime ball and anyone who would contribute to any of his left wing liberal causes.
