(RightIsRight.co) – In one of the strangest statements in modern political history — a statement that has outraged the loved ones of those who perished during the massacre at Robb Elementary School — Al Gore, who served as Bill Clinton’s vice president, compared “climate deniers” to the cops in Uvalde, Texas, who stood by and did nothing for upwards of an hour during the mass shooting that killed 19 school children and two teachers.
Gore’s comments, which you can watch in a video clip further down this post, came during an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press.
During the interview, Gore said:
“You know the climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred. They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots, and nobody stepped forward. God bless those families who’ve suffered so much.”
Gore then went further, stating:
“Confronted with this global emergency, what we’re 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. 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. We have to have unity as a nation to come together and stop making this a political football. It shouldn’t be a partisan issue.”
