Rantin' Al: First Dhimmi of the Month Nominee!

Hatched by Dafydd

I'm sure you all guessed who the first nominee would be, and by gum, you're right: it's former Vice President Albert Arnold Gore, jr.

Yesterday, Al Gore spoke at the Jiddah Economic Forum in (oddly enough) Jiddah, Saudi Arabia. There, he said the following:

Gore told the largely Saudi audience, many of them educated at U.S. universities, that Arabs in the United States had been "indiscriminately rounded up, often on minor charges of overstaying a visa or not having a green card in proper order, and held in conditions that were just unforgivable."

"Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it's wrong," Gore said. "I do want you to know that it does not represent the desires or wishes or feelings of the majority of the citizens of my country."

Rantin' Al Gore

Would you buy a used chador from this man?

I hope this first nominee will make clear the high standards to which candidates must aspire: the award is for Western politicians (and perhaps celebrities, if it's a slow month) savagely and bitterly attacking the West in general, preferably America or Israel in particular -- and especially preferably while on the soil of our enemies (or at least a country whose people overwhelmingly support our enemies).

The Four Feathers award highlights those so assiduous in kowtowing to, rolling over for, and appeasing militant Islamism (or radical jihadism), that they strain their backs bending over to agree with them that the West is wicked, evil, and irredeemably corrupt.

George Galloway, Cindy Sheehan, Ramsey Clark, and Noam Chomsky are automatically disqualified every month by virtue of having already achieved Hall of Fame status. Besides, I'm tired of them.

By the way, at least some people at the conference were challenging the Saudis to some form of Western-inspired change. From the same article:

Cherie Blair, wife of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, made a plea at the forum for women's rights, telling Saudi leaders that the dearth of women in the work force was "undermining economic potential" of the kingdom.

Irish President Mary McAleese urged Saudi Arabia to learn from Ireland's economic transformation, which hinged on opening the country to the outside world and ushering women into the workplace.

When the British PM's wife, the aptly named Cherie Blair, is more forceful in defending liberal Western democracy than the former Democratic presidential nominee, you know something is rotten in the state of Dhimmistan!

Cherie was also the lawyer for a Muslim woman who wanted to wear a burqa to school. She won. She is just as bad as the rest of them.

The following hissed in response by: MTF

The fact that this speech was given indicates pretty clearly that Abu Al thinks the Dimocratic electorate won't mind his appearance or what he had to say. I'm tempted to jump to the conclusion that he thinks, as most of us lizard readers probably do, that American voters have completely written him off as any sort of force at all in American politics, but we all know that no self-adoring politician, like Abu Al most definitely is, would ever conclude such a thing. The only other possibility is that he thinks the core voters on the Dimocrat side are blindly accepting and loyal, and his supporters just won't care what he says, or whom he speaks to, just so long as he squeeks enough anti-American rhetoric into the speech to satisfy the base. Abu Al has concluded the lefties will even adjust their Michael Moore driven thinking about the complete non-acceptability of cozying up to the Saudi's to allow for the "bash-America" exception: you CAN take money from the Saudi's if and only if in your speech you heavily criticize America. That's the new standard for acceptable in lefty-land. This means Al, in his own cynical way, has proven a very depressing fact about core Dimocrats, which is that the left is so thoroughly against the present American administration and against Republican control of government generally that they are willing to try to accomodate themselves to anyone without distinction, even, I guess, to islamofascists if in return they can find receptive international support for their views. Is it out of fashion or politically incorrect to say that someone is despicable? Well, Al Gore is a despicable man. They will never win another national election again until they drive these sorts of people out of their party.

Sadder, still, is the fact that he was speaking only about 30 or 40 miles from Mecca. A city even Mustafa Al-Gore cannot enter, as he is an infidel. A city where another 200 or so Muslims were trampled to death, because the beneficent Saudis will not act to protect them properly.
