MoveOn.org once again has had the Democrats’ 2000 presidential candidate and climate alarmism entrepreneur Al Gore send out a solicitation email for MoveOn.org urging MoveOn members to give money to Democratic candidates who embrace his global warming fantasy. (See previous blog post on the mid-September fundraising appeal.) Gore continues to lie and lie and lie about global warming. In the letter he writes, “The climate crisis, in particular, is worsening more quickly than predicted and without strong leadership from the next president, we could face consequences right out of a science fiction movie.”
I think the controlling authority here is fiction.
For the historical record, here is the new email:
Dear MoveOn member,
I know something about what can happen in close elections. And we’ve only got 7 days left to make sure this isn’t one of them.
We are witnessing history in the making. Millions of young people are getting involved in politics for the first time. A leader named Barack Obama is rising up to unite America behind his vision of progressive change. Yet we know from 2000 that progress is not inevitable. Victory can fall just out of reach. And the difference of a few thousand votes can put our country on a decidedly different path.
That’s why I’m writing to you today to personally ask you to volunteer with the Obama campaign to help get out the vote this week. Everything we’ve worked for together hangs in the balance in these next few days. The Obama office in Arlington still needs more volunteers and I’m hoping you can help. Click here to sign up:
I know that MoveOn members have the power to swing elections. In 2006, you made over 7 million calls—I made some myself—and together we won back both houses of Congress. And already this year, nearly 120,000 of you have signed up to volunteer for Obama in battleground states.
But the stakes this year are too great for any of us to sit it out. We’re facing two wars and an economic meltdown. The climate crisis, in particular, is worsening more quickly than predicted and without strong leadership from the next president, we could face consequences right out of a science fiction movie.
Barack Obama will provide that leadership. But only if we all make sure he wins. Please sign up to volunteer today.
Yes we can,
