Former Vice President and failed 2000 presidential candidate Al Gore took heat this week after comparing “climate deniers” to the “400 law enforcement officers who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred.”

The clip of Gore making the odd remark was tweeted out by NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

“Confronted with this global emergency, what we are doing with our inaction and failing to walk through the door and stop the killing is not typical of what we are capable of as human beings,” he added.

Gore — who also incorrectly predicted in 2009 that all the ice in the Arctic would be gone in the summer by 2013 — has been pushing for climate-conscious policies since the 2000s, as his main pet project since losing the presidency.

“We do have the solutions and I think these extreme events that are getting steadily worse and more severe are really beginning to change minds,” the former Vice President emphasized.

The United Kingdom (UK) experienced its hottest day on record this past week with the temperature reaching 104 degrees as a heatwave swept through Western Europe leading to wildfires in Spain, Portugal, and France.


“We have to have unity as a nation to come together to stop making this a political football. It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Gore stated.

While he calls for unity on climate policy, however, Gore does so with a checkered past in his predictions of how climate change would actually advance.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is planning to use executive action to install regulations necessary to reach his lofty goal of 50 percent emissions by 2035, to appease a radical faction of his voting base.

For Democrats, unity on the subject of climate change means a dramatic reworking of the American economy and redistribution of wealth — which will hurt the most vulnerable Americans, as seen with recent job layoffs at the Ford Motor Company and rising gas prices across the country.

While the documentary filmmaker may think he can use insensitive insults just two months after the shooting in Uvalde to silence critics of climate change, the real impacts of the green energy agenda are already starting to harm the livelihoods of U.S. citizens, each and every day.

Gore believes that dissenters daring to go up against the Democrats’ climate change narrative are just as bad as someone leaving children to die. A form of rhetoric that’s certainly not aligned with the unity his party claims to preach, ahead of the upcoming November midterm elections.
